My old Tupperware kitchen containers were getting pretty tired looking. I needed something new. While shopping at K-Mart one day, I was pleasantly surprised to find these Airtight Food Storage Container Sets from the EveryDay Collection by Martha Stewart.
These plastic sets range in different prices depending on how many are in a set and the size of the containers. My four piece set was around 7.99, but I also purchased a larger tub separately. Each container comes with its own pretty green lid.
These containers are thick and best of all, dishwasher safe, unlike those disposable Glad containers everyone uses these days. I like the light green color, it is neutral enough to go with most any kitchen decor. I also feel good knowing these containers are manufactured in the USA.
These containers are sturdy, so they keep my food airtight fresh. They are microwave and freezer safe. These containers are great for storing leftover party food. I used the tall one to store leftover baked beans from a recent picnic. You can also use these to store flour, sugar, coffee, and more.
My only complaint about these containers is that the lids sometimes take a little effort to seal. This is not something that would stop me from purchasing more of these containers. I do recommend them. Great price!
Update On Feb 15, 2008: I purchased additional Martha Stewart Everyday containers like the large ones shown in photos in the green and clear variety, only in smaller sizes, such as sandwich-size storage. The lids do not fit, no matter how hard I struggle! The smaller the container, the less likely the lid will fit. I am very disappointed and do not recommend the smaller Martha Stewart containers in the sandwich and small snack size. The larger containers do better, but lids are still not easy to close. It should not be a struggle to put lids on storage containers.
