I recently found Frego storage containers. I was immediately drawn to them for several reasons. First, they are glass and silicone instead of plastic. No plastic means no BPA. That is one less chemical to end up in my families food. Next, they have a silicone sleeve. The silicone sleeve serves as a cushion for the glass to help prevent breakage. The silicone sleeve also serves as a barrier between your hand and the glass that may be hot or cold. One other reason that I was attracted to Frego is because they are safe for the oven, microwave, and the dishwasher.

I have been using the Frego for the last couple of weeks. I have packed lunches for a 4 year old and a 44 year old. The container is holding up great even after a few bumps and bruises from the males in my house hold. All of the pieces are dishwasher safe and everything but the lid is oven safe. One of the fun features of Frego is the ability to write on the silicone sleeve. If you use a dry erase marker, you can write your child's name in the container or even a little love note. The dry erase marker will clean off with a wet paper towel.
I love that the container can go in my microwave and my oven. The first time that I used it, I was a little chicken to put the silicone sleeve in the microwave, so I just heated food in the glass portion. When I removed the container from the microwave, the glass was a little hot to touch so I slid it in the silicone sleeve. Once it was in the sleeve, I had no problems handling the container.
I truly love my Frego. I am very happy with the quality, convenience, and the fact that it is safe for my entire family. The only downfall for me is that they are only available in a 2 cup container. I would love to see more sizes available in the future.
