You know how the dryer always seems to eat your socks? Life, in general, seems to eat my meal prep containers. I'm serious—it doesn't matter how many food storage containers I buy, all of them disappear into some kind of abyss within a month of being purchased.
This mystery is as frustrating as it is perplexing. Motivating myself to meal prep every week is hard enough; the pile-on of constantly running out of meal prep containers is almost too much to bear. (I said "almost." I'm not that dramatic.)
Needless to say, I shop for food storage containers a lot. And I've come to realize there are all kinds of them. Round ones, square ones, rectangular ones. Tall ones, short ones, medium-sized ones. Compartmentalized ones, leak-proof ones, stackable ones—you get the picture. And as you can likely imagine, different dishes fare better in different storage containers, so owning a variety is ideal.
Here, a shopping guide for 29 of the best meal prep containers on Amazon, according to reviewers. Each of these products has at least a 4-star rating after 100 reviews or more.
