My SNAPWARE Makeover: Airtight, Durable and Safer Food Storage!
Yes, I finally have my dream food storage system! Thanks to the kind folks at World Kitchen (makers of Corelle® and other kitchenware) I got a fabulous makeover with the SNAPWARE® storage solution!
SNAPWARE is a durable range of plastic and glass airtight containers that are microwave, dishwasher, oven and freezer safe, and are completely free of Bisphenol-A (BPA). All made in compliance with US FDA standards.
You can keep food safer for longer, and transport food easily, because it's 100% airtight with maximum leak-proof protection.
And no, they are not made in China (phew). This is quality stuff made in the USA and Korea, with a lifetime warranty!
There are a few different ranges within SNAPWARE.
The SNAPWARE Airtight Modular range, as its name suggests, is modular and lets you arrange things in neat blocks. The lids are colour-coded for easy reference. And they are stackable when empty, saving valuable space!
The containers come in various sizes and configurations.
I'm so happy I've found my ideal flour bins! It's now so easy to flip open the big tab and scoop out the requisite cups of flour. And I can organise them easily by type too.
The SNAPWARE Airtight Canisters are wonderfully easy to use too. You can literally just use one hand to open and close them. So nice to see things organised in matching containers too. Choose from round or rectangular forms in tall, medium or short heights.
The black top one is specially for coffee - comes with a scoop too!
The SNAPWARE containers are easy to open and shut but are completely airtight. Even kids know intuitively how to use them.
Cookies stay crisp and tasty!
SNAPWARE also has this really nifty cupcake carrier!
It stores twelve cupcakes or muffins, and is stackable too! You can snap on another one on top and carry two dozen with you for a party or picnic.
The super versatile Airtight Eco One-Touch is probably my favourite range - it's made from natural, stain proof and shatter-resistant glass.
You can prepare, store and serve all in the same container - here I have some kyuri (Japanese cucumbers) being pickled.
It is great for marinating and storing items in the fridge or freezer, and the glass dish can be used for baking too! A simple press of the button on the lid compresses then air within and prevents further air flow. Totally airtight and leak-proof (yes, you don't want any marinades spilling or adding smells to the fridge).
The glass range is not so easy for kids to open, because it seals tightly and only releases with the button on the lid. Good when you need to keep curious hands out!
The smallest size for the rectangular series is perfect for my Hiyayako (cold tofu). Pour a little tsuyu (seasoned Japanese soy dipping sauce) and sprinkle some seaweed furikake over a block of tofu (you can blanch it first, if you prefer) and you get a tasty, a low-calorie, protein dish in bare minutes!
The glass container catches all the sauce and toppings nicely, so I don't have to use too much seasoning (which goes to waste eventually).
The SNAPWARE Airtight Vacuum Range also secures safely without leakage. An additional tab on top of the lid can be lifted when microwaving to facilitate heat flow, allowing the food to be reheated thoroughly. When unused, the containers can also be nested and stored in a safe-efficient manner.
Sigh...can't believe this used to be my old storage system. Well, really no system at all.
Yup, the previous mess of storage containers - lids that don't match, containers that don't last, glass bottles that are never the right size, disposable takeaway boxes that we try to recycle a few times before throwing away. On top of that, it's an eyesore!
And now it's all so neat and tidy! One set for life - so much more environmentally friendly too, compared to repeatedly buying and tossing less durable containers.

Well, I'm very glad to junk all my old stuff and have durable storage solutions that makes sense.
SNAPWARE storage are great housewarming and Christmas gifts for the houseproud. Even if you don't get some for yourself, get some for others! It is available in all Tangs, Metro and OG outlets, as well as Mustafa at S$3.90 - S$29.90. Very good value, considering the lifetime warranty!
