U Konserve Review

U Konserve Review 

Samples were provided for review purposes. All opinions are my own. 

My mother and I were just having a conversation about not using plastic anymore in her lunch box to work. After all these studies that show that some plastic cause cancer and other problems, whether it is true or not, it is smart idea to start avoiding these plastics.

U Konserve was nice enough to send us their new glass rectangle container with silicone sleeve. It goes into the microwave, the oven, and the top rack on the dishwasher. Also, everything is BPA-free, PVC-free, phthalate-free and lead-free!

Glass containers and silicone sleeves are oven safe up to 375 degrees, microwave safe (remove lids before placing in oven or microwave), and dishwasher safe (top rack recommended). Although the lids are dishwasher safe, research has shown that it is best to keep plastics out of high temperature environments like microwaves and dishwashers.

Silicone grip helps prevent breakage and protects hands from hot surfaces, but as with any glass product or hot surface, please use common sense when heating, storing and handling. As with other glass products, avoid extreme temperature changes (freezer to oven, for example) that will crack the glass. Handle with care when using as bakeware. The one in the photo is  36oz. and measures 8” x 5.75” x 3” tall. U Konserve also has a 13 oz. one.

  1. I love that these are non-leaching alternatives to plastic containers!

  3. I like that the ice packs have sweat-free covers. I hate it when I bring a lunch and everything is wet because of the ice pack sweating over everything.

  4. I like the 26oz eggplant container – I’m a sucker for purple and we go to a lot of potlucks. I’d love it if you’d share this at Reviews, Chews & How-Tos for our first Awesome Life Friday Link Up http://rchreviews.blogspot.com/2015/01/awesome-life-friday-no-1.html
