Nice standard sized containers so you can always get more without worrying about lid sizes!
on September 27, 2012
These containers are of the same dimensions as those you get from takeout restaurants. They are standard sized and the lids and containers are interchangeable, nestable, and stackable. No need for extra shelve spaces just for different sets of containers.
One of my pet peeves with containers have been the inconsistant sizing and shapes of sets you frequently see in stores. You buy a new set and a few months later, you need more and can't find the same things again. I found that I ended up with different stacks of containers that just don't nest neatly to save space.
One big bonus if you also plan on get the 8oz. size to compliment your 16oz. containers.... They use the same lids! These plain workhorses do their job inexpensively, no fuss, and plays well with their mates.. lol. And when I get take outs, I can reuse them without making extra stacks on the shelf.
I plan to make big batches of soups and sauces for the freezer, and these will make the process simpler and neater. I plan on getting more of these containers in different sizes after I get a dedicated freezer. Now, how do I save space while storing the unused containers? I plan to make a storage tube for these containers out of 6" PVC pipe and caps. That way, I will save even more space in my kitchen shelves between my cooking binges!
