Pyrex Food Container Set

When it comes to food storage, Pyrex is king. This rectangular set is dishwasher, microwave and oven-safe, making it perfect for layered desserts—like tiramisu or trifles—that need to be kept refrigerated. We also love them for making and storing our favorite casseroles (and lasagna—is lasagna a casserole?).

Lunch Containersvia amazon.com

Lunch Containers

Resealable baggies were cool during grade school, but we prefer something sturdier for our work lunches. Medium-sized containers—like these 1.25 cup dishes from Rubbermaid—are perfect for the job. These are ideal for casseroles, veggies, pasta and sandwiches.

Saver Lidsvia amazon.com

Saver Lids

Ever feel wasteful for buying a can of tomato paste when your recipe just calls for one tablespoon? You’re not alone—canned items are great for keeping foods fresh, but once they’re open, you’re stuck with wasting the extra or forcing yourself to scarf down the rest. These saver lids are your storage savior—they’re stretchy and form an airtight seal, meaning the contents of your can may live to see a few more days.

Food Storage Bags

These are not your ordinary zip-top plastic bags. We love the flexibility provided by the reusable silicone food storage bags, which can snuggle their way into tight spaces in our already-jam-packed fridges. They’re also great choices for transporting fresh fruit, trail mix and cut-up veggies.

Antique Copper Canisters

These copper canisters are absolutely gorgeous—we love everything from the rustic finish to the bubble texture. But it’s what’s on the inside that counts. You can store your favorite baking ingredients, like flour and sugar, or keep the products of your most recent bake tucked away from the elements. Love farmhouse decor like we do?

Cake Holdervia amazon.com

Cake Holder

I can’t stress this enough—we love our cakes. And when it comes to cake, we don’t mess around with storage. We love this cake and cupcake holder, which comes with removable tiers and trays that can accommodate various baked goods. No more placing inverted bowls over perfectly iced cakes only to wake up with messy frosting and one hardened side (like seriously, how does that happen overnight?).
