Looking to downsize, organize, and optimize your kitchen? Oven safe containers can replace some of your dishes, make prep easy, and make cleaning a breeze.
Most kitchens are filled with cheap, plastic Tupperware for storing and reheating leftovers. But that’s about all the use that you’ll get out of a plastic container. But just think, if you had oven safe containers, then you could prep, bake, refrigerate, and reheat using a single container. You can also use oven safe containers to help organize your cluttered fridge, or to replace some of your dishes.
But not all over safe food storage is created equal, and some containers may be more useful to you than others. For example, if you’re looking to organize your fridge, then you’ll want to buy a uniform set of rectangular containers. That way, you won’t waste a bit of space. If you’re trying to bring your lunch to work every day, then you’ll want a container that has a strong lid — maybe even a lid with a steam valve.
There’s a lot of variety in the world of food storage containers, so we’ve taken the time to find the best oven safe sets for everybody’s needs. Some of these sets may seem a bit expensive, but keep in mind that a good set of ovens safe containers will serve you for years and years, so the investment’s well worth it.
Pyrex 18-Container Storage Set ($35)
If you’re trying to build or replace your storage collection, then why not go with the king of food storage? Pyrex, a brand that’s become synonymous with oven safe containers, makes fantastic containers that are easy to use, clean, and store. And since Pyrex lids are replaceable, you can expect to use their containers for years and years.
Just keep in mind that these Pyrex containers are kind of the everyman’s storage. They’re not specifically designed for organizing your fridge, or prepping meals, or for taking steaming hot food on the go. If you’re looking for storage containers that are especially great for organizing, then you need a set of uniform rectangular containers. If you want tupperware that can replace your bakeware, then you should look for large, handled containers. See what I mean?
