I am in the process of switching all my plastic containers into glass.  Why?  Health reasons, of course.  With all the concern over BPA and other harmful chemicals being present in plastic, it just makes sense to switch to glass.  I have a few glass pieces, but I am not overly impressed with the quality and therefore I have “hung on” to some of my plastic pieces.  I was excited to try some new Bormioli Rocco containers for my food storage needs.  This is not skimpy, cheap glass.  Certain thoughts come to my mind when I think of Italian glassware- beautiful, sturdy, high quality and Bormioli Rocco lives up to this Italian standard.

I received three different pieces for review purposes.  The Frigoverre Plus, Frigoverre Fun, and the basic Frigoverre.

The basic Frigoverre is indeed a basic, standard glass dish.  Simple and white, and of course made with high quality Italian glass it is a classic way to store foods.   This container was ultimately my favorite.  With a simple push down top and clear sides I had an easy time taking care of and distinguishing my foods in the refrigerator.

A set of three pieces of this set sells at Target for $30.00, however they are currently out of stock.  Perhaps they will get some more in soon!  And they even have a round set that includes four pieces, but they too are out of stock!

The Frigoverre Fun set adds a little color to your glass storage options.  If you are looking for something with a little extra design this is the selection for you.  This dish just like the basic white is easy to close, has great stockability, and is dishwasher safe.  Isn’t everything dishwasher safe nowadays?  Perhaps not, but they should be!

Frigoverre Fun is available through Amazon in a variety of colors and sizes.

And lastly I received the Frigoverre Plus which uses a clik clak system.  What in the heck is a click clack system?  It is a way to ensure an air-tight seal, of course.  This exclusive closing system is great for preparing, preserving, reheating, and serving and can be used in the refrigerator, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher.

According to Bormioli Rocco the special valve allows the transfer to the food container directly from freezer to microwave only opening the valve without removing the lid.  This system avoids splashing inside the microwave and drying of the food.

I have not used my glass from the freezer to microwave, but I have used it from refrigerator to microwave and I can attest that it works great! The Frigoverre Plus comes in different sizes and is available for purchase through Amazon.

Overall, I have been very pleased with my new Bormioli Rocco glass containers.  No more toxic plastic pieces for my family!  Instead we use moderately priced, high quality Italian glass!
