These clear Pyrex 2 cup bowls with tight fitting red plastic lids are exactly what I was looking for. I like to buy food in #10 cans and store it in smaller containers. These bowls hold 1.5 cups of beans or chili or pasta with plenty of head room for expansion in the freezer. Two cups of liquid fills them to the very brim, so if you're planning to freeze 2 cup portions, you will need something larger. These measure 4.75" diameter at the top outside rim, 4" across the bottom diameter, and 2.25" high. They are simple and plain and look good on a casual table. The lid is so tight that you can turn it every which way but loose and it still stays on. The bowls go from freezer to microwave to table to dishwasher without a problem. They aren't plastic so I don't have any concerns about toxins migrating into the food. They should last a lot longer than plastic. For my needs, they are a perfect size. I bought several sets and will buy more now that I see they are exactly what I wanted. All pros, no cons.
