Ziploc VersaGlass Container Product Review & Giveaway: Glassware for your freezer!

I was so excited to try out two of Ziploc's newest products from their VersaGlass Container collection.  What drew me to this product was the concept.  Ziploc's VersaGlass containers would allow me to store food in my freezer in a glass container, which I could then thaw out at a later date, and then cook in either the microwave or oven (sans the plastic lid).

Leftover spaghetti!

Giving it a little bit of cheese before the big freeze!

I always read the instructions.... so I know if I can put in the dishwasher or not.

Lid snapped on - ready to freeze!
I used the Ziploc VersaGlass to freeze spaghetti, planning to use it for a future meal as baked spaghetti.  It spent little more than a week in my freezer, and truthfully, I'm confident that it would have lasted longer, but I needed a quick meal!  One caveat here that I want to mention is that you should defrost the food that you have stored in the VersaGlass container because extreme temperature changes can break the tempered glass.  In my case, I pulled out the VersaGlass frozen dinner about 2-1/2 hours before I planned to begin cooking it.  I had no issues with the glass and dinner turned out great.  They are dishwasher safe, though I washed the lid by hand.   They're oven safe up to 400 degrees.  You should not cook food with the lid on.

Buy Them:  Ziploc VersaGlass containers come in a variety of sizes and come in round and square and are sold at places like Walmart, Krogers, and other retail establishments.  You can purchase them individually for approximately $4-$9, with variety packs costing approximately $17, making them very affordable as a gift or even using for a dish at a potluck/sick friend/funeral situation where you're afraid you won't get your dish back.  For information about available sizes, please see this press release.
