Glass Food Container with Lid by Smart Portables

My husband always brings his prepared lunch from home to work. We are always buying throw away plastic containers, even those that are re-usable because I do not like to give him plastic wear that is all stained with previous food. I don’t like to use them for the house, and much less for him to take to the office. We decided to try this Smart Portable Meal Container to see if it would be a better alternative as we try to also be environmentally conscious and throwing away plastic containers certainly is not the way to go. We opted to try one container, my recommendation is just go with the four pack because I wish I had.

This glassware is made out of thick glass, resistant glass. It is a bit on the heavy side but it is due to that good glass which we are perfectly fine with. It has a plastic snap-on lid that is leak resistant; It seals and protects its contents from spilling. The container hold 35 ounces. It is microwave and oven safe which is the best part of it. I can prepare a meal, cook it, seal it and he can take it to work and just re-heated if necessary; All in one container. He loves tater tots hot-dishes, and now I can make him his very own small dish to take with him to work. Not only can he use it for lunch but also for activities where they all bring something from home to share, it is the perfect size for a nice cheesy dip. This container is made with borosilicate glass like those measuring cups we all have in our kitchen. The container is dishwasher safe, however I would not recommend to run the lid through the dishwasher as it is plastic. Also, the lid is not microwave (or oven, of course) safe.

Overall, we really like this container. It is versatile, easy to clean, it does not hold smells, and we don’t have to deal with stains. It should be durable, but that always depends on the treatment and care given to it. But for me the best part is that it saves me time, and work in the kitchen; Less steps to take, and less stuff to wash. I highly recommend it.
