plastic vs glass containers
« on: November 27, 2016, 01:53:41 PM »
I'm in need of new containers for food.

Should I go with glass or plastic?  Weight isn't a big deal.

Depends due to several variables as both have its' pros and cons...i.e., cost, type of food stored, all purpose, etc.

With that said, glass are generally better overall as there's less infused chemical concerns and it also looks better but it also cost more....so it's really up to you.

My containers I carry with me usually contain:

1. Fruits: whatever I have at that time. Apples, oranges, or grapes.
2. old fashioned oats - 2-3 cups of it I heat up in the microwave.
3. sometimes I'll carry something extra like salad, spinnach, or even just some snap peas.
4. - Cereal and milk.  I eat it in the morning once I get into the office cause I don't have time to eat before 7.
And then I have yogurt and v8 drink on the side. 

Light meal to get me through the day.

Glass.
It's clean. Doesn't smell. No BPA.

I got a 5 piece set (well. 10 with lids). I think the brand is pyrex.  Lid are plastic, but the container itself is glass. 
Got it for 11 dollars, cyber week deals from target.

Haven't used it yet. will use it next month when I return from break. 

When I get a job and these are worn out or broken (I'm clumsy). I'll get glasslock.
