Why Is Having The Right Food Storage Containers Important?
Having suitable food storage containers is important when it comes to safe food storage, ease of cleaning, "stackability" in your fridge or pantry, and whether they're suitable for use in freezers, dishwashers or microwaves. A well-organised kitchen should have a variety of containers with different end uses in mind. Consider having some for storing leftovers (that can be conveniently reheated in the same container), some for keeping dry goods, and some with compartmentalised designs that are perfect for packed lunches.
Food Storage Containers FAQs
What does BPA-free mean?
BPA, or bisphenol A, is an industrial chemical that has been used in the manufacture of certain plastics since the 1950s. Due to consumer concern, BPA has been eliminated from many containers and bottles made from polycarbonate plastics - "BPA free" will be clearly stated on product listings and labels if you wish to avoid containers with this compound. You can find out more about the regulation and monitoring of BPA in Australia and New Zealand here.
[H4] Are plastic food containers dishwasher safe?
Many food containers available on the market are dishwasher-safe for your convenience. Be sure to take note of the specific instructions, as they often specify that they can only be placed in the top rack to avoid too much heat and the risk of warping. It's also a great idea to include a selection of food storage containers made from glass in your selection. As plastics are oleophilic, or "oil-loving", they can sometimes be tricky to clean when used to store certain leftovers like curries or pasta sauces. Reserve your plastic containers for oil-free dishes or dry goods, and keep the glass ones for anything with oil or grease for ease of cleaning up later on.
What size food storage container do I need?
The best approach to setting yourself up for optimal food storage and organisation is to choose a range of containers of different sizes and volumes. For example, you can find tall containers specifically designed for spaghetti, or microwave-safe containers that are perfect for storing leftover soup and reheating the next day. Consider your favourite dishes and choose a range of containers accordingly. Another top tip is to try and keep consistency with the range or brand of food containers in your kitchen, as they are often designed to stack easily with each other and maximise storage space in your fridge or pantry.
