Kitchen Stuff: Glass Storage Giveaway!

Posted by on Monday Aug 11th, 2014 | Print

This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner, christophersorel!

In a small kitchen, you don’t need a lot of equipment to cook great food. Still, you do need some pots, pans, utensils, and dishes–obviously. In the BGSK book, you’ll find a bare bones list of necessary tools, but I’ve long wanted to bring you a similar resource on the web.

So we’re going one by one, stocking up our virtual pantries and maybe our real ones too. You can see the whole “set” here.

With the not-great news coming out all the time about plastic and our health, I’ve been switching to non-plastic storage wherever possible. I don’t make a big deal of it, but when I find good-quality glass containers that we can make space for on our crowded shelves, I rejoice. Especially when I know for sure I’ll be putting hot foods away or wanting to reheat something cold in the microwave.

Lifefactory makes three ideal sizes of glass container. The one-cup for small bits of leftovers or snacks. The two-cup for bringing lunch into work. And the four-cup for make-ahead delights that’ll feed you all week: beans cooked up from scratch, big batches of hummus, or a whole lot of quinoa to serve as a base for lunch’s grain salads.

Though pictured in my older storage containers, both glass and plastic, the three instagrams shown above and linked to below are examples of food you can store in glass instead of plastic.

Even better, you can enter to win two four-cup Lifefactory glass containers. Here’s what to do:

  • {one} Leave a comment below saying what big batch dish you’re most likely to want to eat for several meals in a row.
  • {two} Be a subscriber to the Big Girls, Small Kitchen newsletter and leave a second comment letting me know you’ve subscribed.
  • {three} Tell your facebook friends and/or twitter fans about the contest – post the link and tag @Big Girls Small Kitchen (facebook) or @BGSK (twitter). Leave a third comment letting me know you’ve done so.

 

Contest ends August 21st!
