Our Top Picks for Storing Leftovers

You can use just about any of our containers for storing leftovers. Admittedly, though, some work better for this application than others. This is especially true if you’re looking for easy packed lunch ideas. Without further ado, here are some of our top picks. 

Porter Lunch Box

Our bento-inspired Porter Lunch Box is perfect for storing leftovers for a few reasons. First, it has three separate compartments with plenty of room for storing a complete meal. Second, it’s lightweight and features a secure silicone strap, which makes it easy to take on-the-go. And lastly, it’s microwave and dishwasher safe, so you can heat up those leftovers and enjoy your meal without dirtying an extra dish. And when you’re finished, cleaning is a breeze. 

Seal Tight Bowls

Sold individually or in sets of four, our Seal Tight Bowls are perfect for everything from salads and rice bowls to chips and popcorn. Each one holds 16 or 24 ounces and features a spill-proof screw-on lid. This prevents messy spills in the fridge and makes taking leftovers to work for lunch a breeze. The bowl is made from borosilicate glass, and the lid and coating are LFGB-certified silicone. Like most of our products, these bowls are microwave and dishwasher-safe. 

Porter Bags

If you like keeping things simple, it doesn’t get much easier than storing leftovers in our Porter Bags. These reusable silicone bags are perfect for storing, freezing, preserving and more, and they’re an incredible alternative to single-use plastic baggies. They come in several sizes and each is made from a single piece of silicone. They also feature a clear front so you can easily see what’s stored inside. These bags even work well for bringing leftovers home from restaurants since you can easily keep one or two of them tucked away in your bag. As a bonus, Porter Bags have curved corners to eliminate corners where food buildup can lurk. When your bags need to be cleaned, just turn them inside out and toss them in the dishwasher. They’re microwave-safe too! 

Peak Cup Cubes Freezer Tray
