A couple of weeks ago, I did a Huff Post Live Segment with Emeril Lagasse which was a lot of fun. He was talking about Snapware, which is great for transporting all kinds of otherwise difficult foods, and he was specifically referencing soups. I have been a Snapware user for a few years, and I have to say, they are some of my favorite storage containers that I own.
So, imagine how very excited I was when they contacted me and offered to send me some of their new Snapware!! I was seriously stoked on many levels. 1) A gal can always use more food storage and 2) I have this problem:
I seriously needed to clean out my plastic ware cabinet. Where in the world did all these to go containers come from? We hardly ever eat out! I guess we are just good at keeping things hanging around. Don't get me wrong, these come in handy and all, but the lids get warped and I can't heat food in the microwave in them. Let's say that I was all to happy to replace this giant stack with these snazzy new pieces:
And can we talk about a few awesome points of new favorite food storage solutions?! First of all, they are pyrex glass! I love having glass storage containers and these babies can go in the fridge or freezer as well as in the microwave or even in the oven! And because of the "snap" closures, you can bet your bottom dollar that these are closed--sealed--and will not pop open by surprise. (And you won't have one of those incidences where you think you've closed it and then, OOPS, you have not.)
One of my favorite uses (or at least one of my first ones)?
Marinating meat!! I'm a shaker. I like to put my meat and marinade in and then periodically shake it up. Snapware is perfect for this, among its many other talents. Oh, AND, if you fancy Snapware as much as I do, you can enter their contest on their FaceBook Page. You can win a trip to Orlando to dine in Emeril's restaurant along with a ton of other great prizes and their contest ends on January 31st.
So tell me, have you tried Snapware? What's your favorite way to store your food? Share in the comments section below!
