Why is it a good deal? 💰

With the discount and an additional on-page coupon, this set is at its lowest price ever. You'll get 12 containers and lids for just $36, down from $70 — that's $1.50 a piece. It's also available in grey and periwinkle, though prices vary by color.

Why do I need this? 🤔

As mentioned, these food storage containers are made of glass — but not just any glass. We're talking about borosilicate glass, which is used on thermal tiles in space shuttles. Not only does the glass conveniently allow you to see what's packed inside, but it's also oven-safe up to an insane 1,040 degrees and can go in the microwave without a lid. You can also store these containers in the freezer if you have leftovers you know you won't get to right away.

With this set, you'll get four rectangular containers, four square containers and four round containers that range from 11 to 35 ounces. The included lids have airtight silicone seals and snap shut on each side to keep food fresh and help prevent leaks. Now you'll have ample storage for everything from leftovers to ingredients you've prepped for the week.

What reviewers say 💬

Over 9,000 Amazon customers are loving the JoyJolt food storage containers.

Pros 👍

"Best storage containers I have ever owned, and I’m 73," shared one wowed shopper. "Needless to say, I have many. I was so tired of fighting with poor-fitting lids. These are amazingly functional."

"Absolutely love how versatile these containers are," gushed another impressed buyer. "The glass is sturdy and [the] lids are easy to clean and do not stain. Both containers and lids did well in my top rack dishwasher without any warping. I put soup in the container and flipped it upside down on my counter just to test if it would leak, and not one drop escaped through the seal."

"These are excellent quality!" exclaimed this customer reported. "Honestly, I like them more than my Pyrex containers. The lids stay on well, they stack together nicely and they wash up well!

Cons 👎

This customer also reported: "My only complaint is the lids are annoying to store, but otherwise I love them and will be ordering more!" (Psst: Keep scrolling for a smart lid storage solution.)

Said another: "This set is really small. Great for minimal leftovers. Ideal for going into lunch boxes. But for family-sized leftovers they are too small."

This set is available in three colors - get it in black, gray or periwinkle.
