Help finding better stackable containers!

OK I've literally been looking for weeks and none of the solutions out there convince me fully. I always find slickdealers very knowledgeable and so I ask, is there any set out there that:

A- Is made of glass
B-Cost less than $10 per container
C-Can nest or stack neatly
D-Does not include any round shape containers (square or rectangle shape are more efficient)

It just baffles me that none of the main manufacturers are focusing on space saving food storage, specially because in most homes they take the the second most space after pots and pans.

Ideally I would love to find something like Joseph and Joseph containers BUT in glass
Come on Pyrex, is not that hard!

I have a set like this and it's my favorite storage container. I don't think this price is spectacular, but I think it's pretty good if you need this set. This is a fairly large set including the bigger containers which is nice. It's true that these containers cost a lot if you buy them individually, so a set like this is the best way to go.

These do stack nicely which I like. Also when full with the lid on, they also stack nicely in the refrigerator. The lids snap together into stacks for organized storage. The lids snap apart into two pieces for easy cleaning (you don't need to do this every time if they are not very dirty.) I feel the lids give a very good seal and have had no issues with any parts wearing out or breaking. I have had things in the freezer for months and the food stored very well.

Note that the glass is quite thick (which is good and makes them strong). I have occasionally dropped one ("don't try this at home!") and they have survived. Because they are glass they are quite heavy. If you have a stack of them in your cabinet, it will add up to quite a few pounds, so be aware of that. The glass is made in USA.

$29.99 is much more appropriate for 11 small glass containers than $44.99, or the outrageous prices Walmart & Target charge for sets with half as many containers. I personally would pay $0.50 more per container (in sets) to get Glasslock with the better size/shape containers and airtight locking lids.

In that set, you only get (1) 4 cup - 32 oz and (1) 5-1/2 cup - 46 oz, which are medium'ish size. All the other 9 containers are 2-1/2 cups or less (small, smaller, and very small).

They do make larger Rubbermaid Glass food storage containers (8 cup, 11 cup) but they aren't in that set and they cost $10-$18 EACH.

I have to agree with iluvthebeach, it's unfortunate that half the containers are 1.5 cup or less. I find these small sizes nearly useless.

I actually love my tiny glass Pyrex containers which is why I bought this set.

And if anyone else was as freaked out like me by the exploding glass reviews, this Snopes article relieved me even though it is about Pyrex:

Yes, if you take piping leftovers and put them in glass dish (making the glass piping hot) then put that into a refrigerator, it has the possibility to crack/explode. That is people not understanding how to properly use the item, not a defect in the product.

I do like the fact that the lids attach to bottom of the rubbermaid ones. My two cents - im going with the Rubbermaid solution. Final decisions. Not changing my mind. I took a hard look at the snapware tho..

Yep, I think that's what I have (though my lid rims are just white, not colorful). It's a great set.

This reminds me of an "investigating" report our local news did during sweeps some years back about exploding pyrex glassware.
Was such a sensationalized piece of crap.
Once you got past the main story the Mom who took the glassware out of the oven and it exploded next to her daughter "almost" blinding her, the facts were a joke.
Often it was because it was used improperly- taking a piping out plate and putting it on gold granite countertop.
The incidences of the glassware breaking compared to the number sold is minuscule- talking somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 to 20 thousand vs millions of units sold, .01 percent or less.
And most egregious, often times it was not even pyrex glass, but generic made in china thin glass containers. People just associate Pyrex with glassware, so often think Pyrex even though it's not.

Here is Snopes take on the phenomenon:

I imagine much of the same holds for Rubbermiad.

I second that!

I have the same set from Costco and a 10-pc Glasslock set. Both are fantastic.

The difference between these and the Rubbermaid set that the OP posted is the snap-to lid, which creates an airtight seal. The Rubbermaid ones rely on rubber to seal, which is not that great outside of the house.
