[Amazon.ca] Rubbermaid Brilliance Plastic Pantry Containers 10 Containers (20-Pieces with Lids) - $57.67

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B076JB8SPC

Been waiting for these to go on sale and it seems like a decent price - at its lowest on CCC.

Here's a video from America's Test Kitchen winning out against other plastic containers:


I only plan on using them for dry foods but they're leak-free and dishwasher safe.

Sure containers are good but like socks the lids just freaken disappear. Most likely user error but I swear cupboards eat lids.

Good deal. Will toss out all odd ends and go for my yearly renewal.

Do I care?
The model suggested that one of Tritan’s ingredients—triphenyl phosphate, or TPP—was more estrogenic than BPA.

Eastman also sued CertiChem and its sister company, PlastiPure, to prevent them from publicizing their findings that Tritan is estrogenic, convincing a jury that its product displayed no estrogenic activity.

according to testimony from Eastman executives, that same year Nestlé vetted Tritan, and found it leached synthetic estrogen.

Nice. I bought the 8-piece instead ($10 cheaper than last week). Don't need some types of those containers.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I won't be buying this product based on what you have shared.

I do have a question, though. When it comes to leaching, is this even the case if dry items are stored in such containers? Just the thought is enough to make me want to stay away but I am wondering if the leaching is more of an issue if you are storing liquids in the container and/or exposing it to heat.

The reason for my question is that I bought an OXO storage bin with a pop top that I store (dry) flour in. I never even thought of leaching as the plastic seems quite durable and nothing acidic or wet goes in the container except soap and water when I wash it out. I certainly don't want to keep using this if is toxic to my health. The product is similar to this:

Estrogenic? Is there such a thing now? Just a couple years ago they tell you BPA is bad.

Does this estrogen act like regular estrogen? I would assume any estrogen leaking from plastic to be bad.

The estrogen in soy does not affect the body like real esteogen and actually binds to the estrogen receptors blocking real estrogen. Here is some info from harvard if anyone is interested https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/soy/

Glass is non-porous, doesn't leach chemicals and is non-reactive to foods. No odours or stains and easy to wash as well. Plastic is terrible with greasy foods. I use glass for most of my food storage.

I just keep shit in their original plastic bags and actually use them within reasonable time. It's food people, not a museum exhibit to be stored endlessly in your cupboards. And funny how some are totally oblivious to the fact that the food is originally stored in plastic to begin with. Unless I'm drinking hot water from plastic, I wouldn't be concerned at all.

All leftovers are stored in plastic containers that are typically reheated in the microwave in the same container.
Drink bottles are also mostly plastic.

Well I don't reheat leftovers in plastic, just on my plate. I certainly wouldn't reheat my food in odd shaped containers like the ones in this thread. My drink bottles for hot beverages are aluminum.

Neither would I, nor would I store food in them, however:

is the typical storage container.
