Tupperware containers

edited November 2014 in Parenting
So, I am ALWAYS losing tupperware containers. Either the lids go missing or it cracks, or something.

I always debate between glass and plastic. Glass is expensive and we don't have a good track record of not losing the containers, but then I can heat up things more comfortable. Plastic is cheap and not as heavy in my lunch box, plus I don't get super anxious if I lose it.

So which one? Any brand recommendations?

  • I have plastic but I want glass.
    Our plastic ones are the ziplock ones so I don't feel bad if someone walks off with it or etc.

    You could try a mix- do glass for at home and plastic for work?

  • I prefer glass pirex or anchor so I can heat up my food in glass and not plastic, but I'm paranoid about microwaving plastic. It is a PITA to keep track of all the lids though.

    There’s a lightning in your eyes I can't deny
    Then there’s me inside a sinking boat running out of time
    Without you I'll never make it out alive
    But I know, yes, I know we’ll be alright

    I don't lose my lids. I guess they are always used in pairs? I don't know.
    Some of mine have warped in the washer and don't fit anymore, or melted when left on the hot stove top.... cough cough SO. So I always have more bowls than lids.

    I got a huge pack of pyrex and lids on black friday two years ago tho. $20 for a 40 piece set.

  • I use both, but am slowly trying to move to all glass. I just don't want to pay a lot at one time. I have the Pyrex -- I think Walmart is actually having a sell on a 20 piece set for black friday? $20

  • The price went up on amazon. Kicking myself for not getting them earlier. I'll check Target tomorrow. I know I want the bake and store set.
    That's the set I have. I really like it

  • I have these snap lock lid ones. When you leave the snap things open, they vent the food. I love them, no spills. I'm also afraid of heating plastic. Luckily, I'm usually cool with cold leftovers, so it's really not an issue for me. I have a pack of the sturdy, almost cardboard paper plates at work for when I really want it heated.

    I'd be too afraid of the glass ones with small kids in the house, and wouldn't want the extra weight.
  • I'd switch to glass but the toddlers wouldn't forgive me for taking away the Tupperware drawer. We don't have big enough kitchen to keep both.
