Special Features Food storage containers are differentiated not only by material, shape, and size, but also by the special features that are unique to certain containers. These features include: Lids Lids ensure that the contents of your food storage containers remain fresh until ready to use. There are several types of lids to choose from. Cambro Seal Cover lids are tight fitting and spill resistant, with an inner and outer seal for superior protection. Lids like these enable the containers to be tipped completely upside-down without leakage. If this type of protection is not quite what you are in need of, a less expensive, easy-on/easy-off snap-on version offers an airtight fit and great spill-resistance, but not the guarantee that if you tip the container over, no leakage will occur. For fast lid identification, some lids come in color-coded varieties, with one color per size. Again, these lids are not liquid tight, but do offer a snap-tight closure to keep foods fresh. Blue lids White lids Green lids Purple lids Red lids Shop All Lids Graduations/Measurements Food storage containers are not only great for storing food and liquid, but they are also great for providing approximate measurements, thanks to the graduations or measurements that are etched or printed onto the exteriors of many containers. These indicators allow your staff to see how much is in each container without having to measure out the contents. Stackability For space-saving storage, all of our food storage containers feature stackable designs. These types of containers easily nest when not in use, and when in use, their stacking lugs allow for safe, stable stacking with other containers of the same brand, or even with similar brands.

Food storage containers come in one of two shapes – round or square, with each shape having its own set of benefits and limitations. While round food storage containers promote proper air circulation around the container and faster cooling times, square food storage containers maximize storage space. Further, while square food storage containers serve to hold more product in a smaller area of space, the rounded interiors of round food storage containers minimize food waste.

Though testing glass containers wasn’t out of the question, we ultimately only tested plastic models. Since the European Food Safety Authority published a massive assessment of BPA in 2015, we’re not worried about any negative health effects from using plastic containers for dry storage which doesn’t involve heat or acid that might degrade the material. If you’re uncertain, our guide to food storage containers has more on choosing between plastic and glass. In the case of dry storage, glass tends to be heavier and can break easily, which makes pouring a full container or pulling it from a high shelf risky. The glass containers on the market are often more decorative than practical, and only come in smaller sizes meant for countertop display. All the experts we spoke to did recommend some version of a basic canning jar for its tight seal. But we chose not to test any jars because they don’t stack, their opening is often too narrow to scoop from, and the larger sizes are unwieldy to pour.
