We list five compelling reasons why glass works so well in the kitchen and outdoors.
100% recyclable: Kitchen glassware can be used over and over again for many years. It’s made from natural substances and is recyclable – away from landfills. The purity, quality and durability of glass do not degrade with use, making it a good candidate for food storage, packaging and preparation. Even if the glass is broken it can be recycled.
Multi-use: We all got me glass jars and containers from our mom and grandma’s kitchen. Why? First, nostalgia and second, they last a lot better in the long run. Glass is a one-stop solution for storing dry goods, condiments, leftovers, milk, fermenting good old kaanji and kombucha, preserving jams and pickles, mixing bowls, quick meals on the go, food frozen, etc – its duality is amazing.
Safe without compromising freshness and nutrition: Have you ever reheated food in a plastic storage container and then felt the food tasted like plastic? We were there too. Thank you glass – our knight in shining armor (literally) for saving the day! The glass is made up of grade ‘A’ soda-lime glass with a smooth, non-reactive surface that can be easily disinfected and ensures that there is no transfer of toxins, especially when heated. It also doesn’t absorb any odors and flavors. So food stored in glass stays safe and stays fresh longer with nutrients intact.
Aesthetic soothing: For someone who loves neatness, the glass jars and containers are a real saver! Glass when placed in the kitchen immediately elevates the space to a zen zone – tidy, eye-catching with everything see-through and organized.
