Small storage Storage you can show off It’s one thing to hide away your clutter. But why should you have to hide the storage, too? Small storage that’s as stylish as it is functional can easily share shelf space with your favorite things. So you can display the things you’re proud of (while making sure those old school photos stay safely out of sight).

D.Scho December 31, 2010 at 4:29 pm # Very interesting. I’m wondering where this information came from and how reliable it is. I’m having a really hard time finding safe food containers because I find that companies claim they are safe because the bottom is glass, but they don’t mention any specific information about the plastic lids. Right now I’m looking for small glass (or otherwise safe) bowls (10-16 oz.) with lids so I can pack Greek yogurt and fruit for my lunches. Pyrex has glass bowls and “safer” plastic lids, according to this author. But, is “safer” safe enough to warrant my spending all this money to get rid of plastic tupperware to replace it with glass containers with PLASTIC lids??? I’m not loving the Pyrex option anyway because I’ve read reviews. People say the bowls don’t nest, so they take up a lot of storage space, as you have to stack them one on top of the other. I’ve also read that if you TRY to nest them, they they get stuck together and the rim chips and breaks. What would be so hard for Pyrex to simply make the bottom of the bowls smaller in diameter than the top opening??? This way they’d nest! People have said the rims also chip in the dishwasher, so I guess the rims are weak in general. Again, like I said, I’m wondering where the author got the above information. I received the OXO Good Grips POP food containers 1.5 years ago as a wedding gift. And I LOVE them! But, as I’ve recently started worrying about plastic food storage, I looked on the bottom of the containers. They are made with type 7 plastic…which according to my research is BAD because it contains toxins. However, the containers also say BPA free on the bottom. This worried me. I’m thinking, maybe they ARE BPA free, but maybe they have other toxins. Kind of lying/false advertising without actually lying, maybe? Lying by omission, I suppose? I don’t know! I’m really not sure. Maybe the OXO containers are 100% safe. I just wish companies would be a lot more open and in your face about this stuff! I just don’t want to eat out of poison…is that too much to ask!? If the above information is 100% reliable, and I can trust that my OXO containers ARE safe…great! But, I’m still kind of worried, knowing that they’re made from type 7 plastic. They are really expensive to throw away when I’m not even sure what they’re made of! I just want SAFE food storage, that is well-made, won’t break easily, is dishwasher safe, and is able to nest inside each other for space efficient storage. If someone would make such products, I’d be happy to buy them! I’d even be happy to purchase an expensive product! But instead, all I ever see are expensive products that have at least one undesirable characteristic OR don’t CLEARLY state that ALL of the product is safe. Why would I purchase an overpriced product that I’m not 100% happy with? Reply
