Your fridge can feel like a gateway to another dimension, a place where leftovers go to disappear and murky plastic tubs hold possibly unpleasant surprises.

It's easy to forget about your big plans for leftover chicken if they're hiding inside an opaque plastic tub, stuffed behind the milk and a bottle of wine. Rescue your leftovers with a set of Pyrex Simply Store Glass Food Containers. The 18-piece set, which includes five different sizes of glass storage containers and immensely helpful color-coded lids, is on sale for $33 at Amazon.

The Pyrex glass food containers are microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe. So, if you're asking whether these are food storage or serving ware, the answer is yes, as one of the more than 1,200 five-star reviewers on Amazon discovered.

"These things are awesome!" wrote one shopper. "I can cook multiple meals, portion them into these containers, freeze them, take them out of the freezer, heat them in the same container, and, if I am feeling particularly bachelor-ish, I can eat right from the container, thus saving a lot of various dirty dishes and containers. Pretty neat!"

When you're looking to get more organized, it can be helpful to have storage containers of different sizes. In this set, there's a 1-cup storage container that would neatly fit a bit of homemade hummus after a party. A pair each of two-cup round containers, four-cup round containers, and 3-cup rectangular containers are ideal for packing fruit, popcorn, and a fat wedge of lasagna for lunch. The 6-cup rectangular container is great for freezing weeknight enchiladas, and the 7-cup round container could easily fit a few bowls of leftover chili.

If you're considering replacing your plastic tubs, the glass containers and lids come with a two-year warranty. The Pyrex containers not only make it easier to see what you're storing inside, they also are less likely to be overwhelmed by the dreaded red ring of tomato sauce that can discolor plastic food containers.

"These are my favorite," wrote another shopper. "I always buy Pyrex. The glass is easier to clean than plastic Tupperware and they don't get stained or hold odors. Worth the money."

Send your leftovers to the fridge and bring them back safe and sound. Get this set of Pyrex Simply Store Glass Food Containers while it's still on sale at Amazon.
