I recently purchased 3 Rubbermaid Food Storage Containers. I needed an airtight container for rolls & crescents so they would last longer. I selected the 9.6 cup size which was perfect for my needs. As it turns out, there are many more uses for these containers than just bread storage.
During the recent holidays, I discovered these containers will hold liquid or dry food. Since they are leak-proof due to their tight seal, they will even store leftover homemade soup. Plus, they are microwavable when it is time to reheat the leftovers. Therefore, there is no need to transfer leftovers from their storage container to heat. Less clean-up is always appreciated.
I love my faithful Tupperware, but sadly, if I can't see it, I am likely to forget it. So much fruit is discarded simply because it is forgotten once it has been stored away. Because these containers are transparent, it is easy to see at a glance what is stored in which container.

Rubbermaid Brilliance Food Storage Container, Large, 9.6 Cup, Clear 1991158Not only are they clear, airtight, leak-proof, microwavable and freezer safe, their flat design makes them stackable in the the refrigerator, freezer, or pantry.
Since we don't have to worry about the spilling, transporting food from one location to another is easy. Of course, if you are dropping off food, you might not get these nifty containers back. The recipient will be tempted to forget where they came from originally.
Now that I have had experience with the larger containers, I will definitely be buying the smaller single serve size as well. That will make lunchtime so much easier!
To use in the microwave, simply lift the locks for venting.
The only possible negative that I have found with these containers is that they seal so tightly. It takes more effort to remove the lids than it does with a snap lid. But, after a few uses, I knew what to expect. Now I grip the container with one hand and remove the lid with my other hand. In my opinion, that is a simple inconvenience to enjoy the airtight storage.
Oh, and did I mention, the price is right! No wonder they named these containers "Brilliance".
