Waste Nothing

These containers are quite durable. They’re great for storing wet or dry food, craft items, nails and screws, or any other small items. Make sure to label the containers, and include the date for perishable food. You can generally wash them in a dishwasher, although at high temperatures they may become warped so it is often best to wash the lids by hand.

These containers are also very stackable, so you can store plenty of empty ones in a small space. Having plenty on hand means you can send guests home with food leftovers.

This applies to Dairy containers and lids.
