Vintage Glass Food Storage
All glass is good
This product is made by Anchor Hocking which has been around since 1932. it is a very solid, heavy glass with a glass lid that rests lightly on the top. The product is a great alternative to plastic which I am trying to get out of my kitchen completely. The lids do not appear air tight, which may be a problem since I am used to the tight whoosh of plastic lids. But they seem to work well in the fridge. I think I might try a glass product with an air tight lid next time, but for now these seem OK.
The largest container had small cracks in the surface of the glass when it arrived. Looks like manufacturing quality problem but does not affect the usage.

Green storage that's stackable
Having read many articles about how bad plastic is for food storage (never wash plastic in the dishwasher, don't reuse it) I bought these glass containers. There are glass containers with plastic lids which are IMPOSSIBLE to open or close but these are easy and stack neatly in the fridge. And then they get washed in the dishwasher.
Of course you must be careful of the lids, but we have yet to break one.

Vintage Glass Storage
You have no idea how long I have been looking for glass food storage with a glass lid. Everything today seems to have a plastic lid. The glass will last forever, the lid a couple years. Not to mention food and plastic are not healthy. Thanks for keeping alive glass food storage with a glass lid. BTW they also store well as they can be stacked one inside the next.

Bought for a wedding shower
These containers (I bought the larger and smaller ones) were very nice looking in person - much classier looking than traditional Pyrex glass containers. I obviously didn't use them, but they looked great. They were a little on the heavier side, but must glass containers aren't light.
