• Do you consume food in a plastic or glass container?

    Do you consume food in a plastic or glass container?

    I'm curious. I've heard that some plastics break down into unhealthy substances when cooked in a microwave. And, I notice many foods now come in plastic rather than glass containers. Do you think this impacts one's health?

      I don't worry what container my food is in....I cook most of my foods from scratch so that isn't an issue, but I used plastic containers to store leftovers!!!

      I use BPA free containers when needed but mainly use glass.

      I sometimes store food in plastic but I do not put plastic containers into the microwave. Its easy enough to reheat in glass and I would rather be safe than sorry.

      I am trying to use plastic that is marked "microwave safe" - there are questions about the safety of plastics that contain BPA, and I that's what I buy now.
