The way you prepare and store food can have a great effect on your family’s health. The type of materials used play a huge role in this.
The standard options today are plastic and glass. The plastic option is cheaper and more available. But plastic containers might also contain bisphenol-A (BPA), as well as other toxic chemicals or irritants.
On the other hand, glass containers are hypoallergenic and free of dangerous chemicals. They might cost a bit more but can also withstand oven and microwave temperatures without a problem.
Razab Glass Food Storage Containers Review
This 24-piece set from Razab is among the most versatile on the market. It is not exactly the cheapest option, but it compensates with quality build, exceptional overall capacity, and a variety of sizes and shapes.
Similar to other sets in its class, this 24-piece set can be used for preparing meals, reheating leftovers, as well as fridge and freezer storage. Also, it can be washed in the dishwasher together with the rest of the dishes.
Who is this product for?
With versatility as its main strength, the Razab Glass Food Storage Containers are a great solution for larger families that need a wide range of storage, reheating, and cooking options.
The larger containers are great for cooking entire meals. Also, if you have an office party and you’re providing the main dish, the large containers in this set can save the day. They can also be used for cooking lunches/dinners for the week ahead.
At the other end, the intermediate and small ones can be used for storing leftovers for later. You can also use them to store fruit, vegetables, meat, and other foods.
While it is a great option for families and larger households, this set might not be the best solution for singles that don’t need to cook and store that much food.
This 24-piece set has twelve containers and the same number of snap-on lids. All containers are made of high-grade glass, while the lids are silicone-sealed plastics.
The containers come in three different shapes and five sizes. The featured shapes are the standard round, square, and rectangular. The capacities (sizes) range from 320ml (approx. 1.35 cups) to 640ml (approx. 2.7 cups). The full breakdown looks like this:
- 4 x 320ml square containers
- 520ml x 2 square containers
- 640ml x 2 rectangle containers
- 400ml x 2 round containers
- 370ml x 2 round containers
Overview of features
All these containers are made of high-grade borosilicate glass. The walls and bottoms are medium thick and can withstand the standard dishwasher treatment. Also, the glass is resistant to heat up to 500° Fahrenheit and is considered both oven- and microwave-safe. At the other end, it is also safe for fridge and freezer storage.
Design-wise, the containers included in this set are single-compartment. This makes them perfect for meal preparation and reheating, as well as the storage of one meal or food item at a time. Bento-style and mixed meal storage is not recommended.
The lids are made of high-grade, BPA-free plastic. Unlike some other sets, they are uniform in color. All lids are airtight and feature side-tab locking system to further decrease the chances of food spillage or air getting in. This is achieved by the high quality silicone seal at the contact point of glass and plastic. Also, the lids are equipped with quality steam vents.
Containers of the same shape, size, and capacity can easily be stacked on top of each other, as the bases are slightly narrower than the tops. You can also stack smaller containers on top of the bigger ones.
Both the containers and lids are hypoallergenic and free of toxic chemicals. Even after repeated use, if washed well, they won’t pick up any smells and odors. All materials used are environment-friendly and approved by the FDA. Finally, there are no accessories or extras included in the package.

- Before you put dirty containers into the dishwasher, take off the lids as you don’t them anywhere near the heating elements at the bottom
- Use the steam vents to let the steam out when reheating in the microwave
