Set of 5 Nesting Steel Food Containers
Alternative to plastic food containers.
This set of five practical, round, airtight and watertight stainless steel food storage containers is perfect for long (or short!) term storage of food - grains, flours, nuts, seeds, dried fruit - or for freezing fresh produce or seasonal fruits. These containers also work wonderfully for transporting a meal to a potluck, or on a camping trip. Simply re-heat the container on the stove directly.

The five containers nest into one another completely (with the lids on) thus optimizing storage space.
BPA-free, phthalate-free, PVC-free and lead-free. Recyclable.
Goes Great With:
Easy to clean, the bottom part can be washed in the dishwasher. The containers can also be re-heated on the stove. Please note that the lid has a silicone seal, which is not dishwasher-safe or oven-safe. These containers are freezer-safe.
You can use a non-permanent marker/wax pencil to write on the container. This is handy for specifying contents and storage date. The marker writings wash off easily with water and friction.
The container base can be washed in the dishwasher. Lids should be washed by hand with warm soapy water.
Please note that nesting the containers inside each other may cause some minor scratching inside the containers as they rub against each other. This is normal and does not in any way decrease the quality, integrity, safety or functionality of the containers.
