Are the containers oven safe?
All glass dishes are safe to use in a conventional oven. (not lids)
Are the containers microwave safe?
Yes, our glass containers are safe to heat food in the microwave.
As with any containers used in a microwave, do not leave sealed. We recommend the lid is loosened from the base and rest on top with a 2cm (1 inch) gap to allow steam to escape whilst heating in the microwave.
Can the containers be cleaned in the dishwasher?
Yes, they are dishwasher safe. We recommend top rack for the lids. For best results hand wash is recommended, the silicone seal inside the lid is removeable for a thorough hygienic clean.
Are the lids airtight?
Yes, the snap lock lid and inner silicone ring creates a strong airtight seal with the glass dish for secure, leak-free storage This ensure your food stays fresh for longer.
What is the purpose of the steam vent?
The single compartment glass containers have lids with steam vents. When the vent is opened this enables moisture to escape as your cooked food cools down before refrigerating.
Furthermore, when you come to re-heating your food - by opening the vent before opening the lid, this equalises the pressure inside therefore making the lid so much easier to open. Otherwise the lids can be hard to remove because of the suction of the pressure inside.
Are the dividers on the glass containers removable?
The dividers cannot be removed, the whole container and its dividers are one piece. The lid keeps the other compartments completely sealed and leak free.
