Update - it worked very well - I pull out the meal leave it on the counter for an hour from the freezer before putting in the microwave or oven - so its not a major temp change - also if going into the oven put it in when its heating up (read that tip somewhere) so the glass changes slowly.....really liking it :)

I am becoming more and more consious of what I throw away, so I try to use reusable everything now when ever I can....
I hardly every use the seal a meal bags anymore because every time I open one I have to throw away about 2 inches of bag and eventually the bag becomes too small to use. Wasted money....

When I was still working I bought a pile of rubbermade freezable containers. I never put them in the microwave, always empty into a pot on the stove, so no worries about transfering bad plactic to my foods.... But I drop them frequently, and they can chip or break as well -- however that doesn't happen very often.....

If I ever buy something that comes in a foil pan, I wash and give to my sister who uses them for when she makes meals for someone in her church who needs them (wife in hospital, or whatever) That way she does not have to worry about them forgetting to give the dishes back.

I like the idea of the freezable mason jars - never heard of it before, but I am somewhat of a clutz and drop things a lot so I would be concerned about shards of glass getting into the frozen food and my ingesting it...... not a good thing.

You can re-use the foil pans. Unless you can get to a restaurant supply it can be harder to find single serving size, I just save them from when we eat out. They will eventually get holes in them but I do get several uses out of them.

I do freeze some glass. Mostly my glass pyrex casserole dishes, I haven't had one crack yet (knock on wood). The Mason freezable containers are nice, but they don't hold a lot. I freeze single servings of soup/stew/chili's in quart size ziplocks.

I haven't tried these's yet (huge foil pan collection I'm trying to use up!) but I have heard great things about them.

Glass works great, but just be ready in case it breaks!

Glass jars are probably healthier than what we use. We buy the bespak plastic containers to freeze soups or other meals in. My only concern about freezing in glass containers is that I will drop and break them.

I am thinking about getting the mason jars that are freezer approved - doing single serve meals for myself and my daughter and doing ours that way - can reuse instead of throwing away baggies/tin foil things...comments? ideas?
