Awesome Containers that Aren’t Plastic

Freezer Containers Buyers’ Guide

Is it safe to freeze food in plastic containers?

Plastic containers can be made of safe or unsafe plastics. Polyethylene Terephthalate is the most popular type of plastic container and can be used and reused to store all kinds of foods and beverages. Another safe plastic is High-Density Polyethylene, which is used to make milk jugs and bottles and doesn’t release toxic or carcinogenic chemicals. Low-density Polyethylene is another form of safe plastic, usually used in sealable sandwich bags, plastic cling-wrap, and squeezable condiment bottles. Polypropylene and Bio-Plastic are also safe plastics. Most of these plastics are safe to use for freezing food. Always read the label to make sure the plastic container is freezer-safe. The best option to save yourself the hassle of researching plastic materials and freezer options is to buy freezer containers which are sure to be safe and will last a long time.

How to freeze soup in plastic containers?

The perfect soup for freezing is a soup that is brothy and full of vegetables. Soups with dairy or noodles ideally shouldn’t be frozen. Start by preparing your soup recipe, and keep the cream or noodles out to add later before serving. If your recipe contains cooked vegetables, undercook them slightly to get the best results. Then, you must leave the soup to cool before you place it in the freezer. After it is completely cool, pour it into a freezer-safe container and leave 1-2 inches of space in the container as liquid tends to expand. You can keep the soup in the freezer for up to 3 months, so don’t forget to label it with a date, either when you froze it or when you should eat it by.

What size container is good for meal prep?

When it comes to meal prep, size is very important and bigger is not always better. 25 oz sized containers hold around three cups of food and are the perfect lunch size for those on the go. 25 oz containers hold the ideal amount of food, so they won’t leave you too full or hungry for more. 40 oz containers may seem more appealing but they are too deep and bulky to carry in your bag. With a large container, you usually want to fill it to the top with food, then end up eating more than you had planned to. But, there is no set rule when it comes to food prep sizes, so experiment with a few containers and find the size that suits your needs best.
