If there is a habit I had to unlearn by virtue of being haunted by my mum (lol), it would be the subtle habit of food wastage. Growing up as a kid, my mum would always scold I and my siblings for wasting food that could either be eaten later or given to the less privileged (as she would call it).

Nevertheless, she always gave the stored food to the less privileged. Hence, if you cooked any dish and it was more than enough, you would find my mum emptying the pot of food excess into a food storage container that’s either made of glass or plastic. Although mostly plastic, they always come in handy.

If you are the round-the-clock busy person that likes to cook in excess (when you have the time to) for the rainy days, you should consider getting a food storage container. This is fantastic! However, just like you would carefully shop a shoe off an online store by paying attention to all the juicy details about it, you should invest equal energy – or more, while shopping for a food divider storage container.

The reasons are numerous. But, let’s just summarize the endless reasons to two. The first being that it is a great choice for your health and the second, it is safe for the environment. Without further ado, here are the qualities you should look out for in a food storage container before opting to purchase one. And yes, you should evaluate it like you would evaluate a potential lover (lol).

Features

In order to find that one true love in a food divider storage container that would help you cut losses, preserves your food well and is a healthy option for you, there are certain features you should look out for.

  • Purpose: Before yanking a food divider storage container off the shelf, you should consider what you need it for. Do you need them to help you move breakfast or lunch from point A to B or you just need a container to store food in the refrigerator to keep food fresh? Whatever your reason is for wanting to get a food storage container, you have to clarify and consider what you intend to use it for.
  • Material: Once you have clarified what you intend to use the storage container for, the rest becomes easy. This becomes the compass that leads you to the food divider storage container that’s right for you. Several food containers exist and they are made from a wide variety of materials ranging from plastic to glass to ceramics etc. However, the purpose for which you require the food container determines the food container that’s right for you. In the context of meal prep and food preservation, both plastic and glass storage containers are pretty healthy options. However, according to workweeklunch.com, between glass and plastic food storage containers, glass containers are the better choice. Although plastic containers are usually cheaper, they are still safe but you have to pay attention to the number written on the bottom of the plastic. For example, plastic containers with the number 1, 2, 4 or 5 are microwaving safe. Plastics with numbers 3, 6 or 7 are dangerous to your health and not safe to use. You should pay attention to these numbers if you wish to opt for a plastic food storage container because they tell you the kind of plastic it the food container is made from. Consider this plastic food storage 101 (lol)
  • Size: Size is also another important factor you should consider when scouting for the perfect food divider storage container for you. This is because, you want to ensure that the food storage container you buy can actually cater for your hunger. You could start by buying a random, cheap food container to be certain of the exact size that suites your needs.
