Choosing the proper food storage containers should be your top priority when planning any exercise and diet regimen. Eating healthy has a lot to do with properly prepping your meals after all. But what is the point of spending all that extra time prepping your food and trying to live healthy if you accidentally ruin everything by storing the food improperly. The way we store our food directly affects the quality of food. It really isn’t something you can afford to overlook. That being said, good food storage starts with having a good food storage container. There are a lot of options out there, but most people prefer glass. Glass is alright, it has a lot of good properties that make it a top-notch storage container, but it is a little lacking when put in up next to stainless-steel food storage containers.
Glass Food Storage Containers
Glass jars are high on people’s list for food storage for a couple of good reasons:
- Glass jars are aesthetically pleasing
- They have a way of making your kitchen look organized and fashionable
- They can easily keep foods fresh
- They are microwave safe
- Glass jars won’t affect the taste of the food
All of these reasons make glass jars top notch food storage items. The last reason, not effecting the taste of the food, is especially important. That’s one of the biggest reasons to choose glass jars over plastic. You don’t want to eat food that tastes like plastic, really!
Stainless Steel Storage Containers
Stainless-steel food containers are pretty similar to glass in just about every aspect, and then some:
- They are aesthetically pleasing (come in a variety of pleasing colors and shapes)
- Have an amazing way to pull a kitchen together (works with a variety of décor)
- Easily keep foods fresh
- Can keep food insulated easily at the desired temperature
- Stainless steel jars won’t affect the taste of the food
- Not as bulky as glass could get
There are two big differences between glass jars and steel jars. The first one is steel isn’t microwave safe. You will blow up your microwave if you use it with metal inside of it. But this isn’t that big a convenience, you can simply transfer the food to a microwave safe dish before heating it up. Stainless steel jars are also way more durable than glass jars. Glass will always be at risk of breaking at the end of the day – that’s what glass does. If you travel a lot with your food and need to make sure your storage container is durable, nothing beats a good stainless steel jar. Invest in an insulated stainless-steel jar today!
