I do use plastic. I'd prefer to use glass but that's expensive and it'd probably get broken.
I try not to use plastic storage boxes unless they are BPA free. But if I really have to sometimes, I do not put hot food in it and do not reheat food in it.

I use only to keep food in, in the fridge or freezer.
I buy a good brand too.
Never use them the re-heat food.
It may not be safe,or ruin the container.
As with the one in my pic, that had rice
in it....Some plastic containers can not
be used, in the re-heating process.
I do. I try to buy those that a BPA free. Like meggf, I would prefer glass, but they are expensive. I sometimes store food on plates and cover them with cling wrap - but that is not environmentally-friendly and makes me feel very guilty.

I generally use plastic containers. I'm not too concerned about the health safety, but I do worry when re-heating that I might melt the container! So I only use the better quality ones when reheating!
I have mostly BPA free ones -I have a lot of tupperware however I do still store things in some plastic.

I never however, would heat up in plastic apart from occasionally in a tupperware but not for more than a minute. I always put it in glass to heat in the microwave.
