A lot of people on this post say to use glass. Well that's no good to freeze food in. It's a pain in the bum - you have to watch what you eat, where the source is - and then what to store food in. Does it never end.

Don't use any of them at all around food. They bind with whatever they're touched by. Why do you think that trash bags made out of "recycled" plastic stink to high heaven? Save your glass jars and re-use them. Easily and completely sterilized, and much safer.

I used Tupperware for years in fact still have some floating around. But darn it if you don't use it for someone to take food home with them and it's gone forever never to be seen again. Tupperware is not cheap and I haven't heard of Tupperware in a long time.
