Going Glass

Snapware Rebate

In visiting Costco this week, I found the Snapware Glass Food Storage containers were on sale, and thought you (my health-conscious readers!) might want to know about it. (Not sure if this is true at every Costco, but saw these at the one in Raleigh, NC. However, if you find another Cosco location has the same rebate, please post a comment here to share with us!)

As glass is a great way to store foods: helping avoid the leaching of chemicals from plastic storage containers and providing other wonderful benefits! Snapware Glasslock offers a great solution! And I love how the company’s vision is to bring organization to the home!! These are very nice containers! I bought them for use at my client’s home and have been satisfied (even with the customer service when I called to request replacement for a cracked lid in the box – they sent one over, no problem.)

This 18-pc set runs about $35 online (and that doesn’t even include any shipping one might incur). The normal Costco price is $29.99, but purchase the pack at Costco before 7/31/11 to qualify for a $6.00 rebate, reducing the price to $23.99!!! If you don’t already have glass food containers and have been waiting for a good time to switch over (and a lower price point), now might be just the chance you’ve been waiting for!!

I’d love to hear what you think if you indeed make the purchase!

I feel a cheer coming on as I see pom-poms rustling vigorously…”GOooooo GLASS!!”

Please note: the 18 “pieces” of the set are counting the “tops” of the containers as well, so you’re essentially getting about 9 storage containers total.

    It’s interesting that you would post something about this now. I just bought a set of containers similar to these, but they are Pyrex. I originally bought a set from Big Lots and one did have a cracked lid. I need to see if I can get a replacement. I got a 2nd set from Target a couple of weeks ago. The glass is heavy and doesn’t stack as easily in the cupboard as my plastic ziploc containers, but they also don’t stain like the plastic does. I’m not completely convinced that plastic leaches chemicals into the food, but do feel safer with the glass. Better safe than sorry, esp. if it’s an easy change like switching from plastic to glass!

  2. I was just thinking about getting glass containers like these! Too bad I don’t live in the states as these sound like a bargain! Great post once again!

  3. Lisa – your blog is prolific already – every time I go on here there is something new and interesting! Your generosity and enthusiasm are incredibly contagious.

  4. We switched over to glass about 3 years ago – and with my hypersensitivity to the taste of chemicals, guess what?! I can TASTE the difference! Thanks for the shopping tip, as a couple of mine have broken over the summer.

  5. Wow – that is amazing that you can tell the difference!! I’d love to hear what you end up getting if you replace the ones that have broken!! 🙂

    Because I’ve been concerned about how to store my new glass containers, I’ve been trying to think of ideas to prevent them from chipping. One set came with cardboard inserts that I saved to store them with, but the other set didn’t. I had the idea to cut up a roll of that padded, rubber shelf-liner stuff to put in between them, but before I could go buy some of that, I saw a set of foam pan protectors in the http://www.freshfinds.com catalog. They are $7.95 for a set of 3 and are item #E5631 if anyone wants to check them out. Getting a roll of the padded, rubber shelf-liner stuff and cutting it to size would probably be cheaper, but it wouldn’t be as thick. I think it would work though. :-/

    On another subject, does anyone know if the glass containers and their lids work well to freeze?

    • K.A. Williams – I have frozen mine multiple times with success. Just remember not to change temperatures rapidly (don’t put something straight from the freezer into a hot oven). Most of mine are the Pyrex brand, and some others as well. Also, beware of freezer burn if you have a warped lid that isn’t sealing properly. Hope this helps!

    Thanks! I think it might help prevent freezer burn if I wrap the whole container with heavy-duty aluminum foil too. I think I’ll try that. We have a 20-year-old large freezer and it does tend to burn things. I do cook large batches of chili and soup and freeze portions to eat later, so I’d hate to lose them to freezer burn!

    My mom picked up the snapware set for me at Costco this week. I can’t wait to try them out!
