LOS ANGELES, CA, December 7th, 2014 ­– The holidays are breathing down our neck filled with cold winter weather and lots of food. It’s no secret we’re looking for great storage containers for our leftovers and a baking dish to cook our casseroles in.

Your holiday cooking that much easier with the Emsa storage containers that can be used in the oven and then transferred to the refrigerator for storage.

Emsa has a glass container that can keep food fresh and bake with consistency, which means you could cook baked lasagna, then serve it in the dish and lastly throw a lid on top to store it in your refrigerator.

Emsa test:

The storage container cooked and stored our rice, lamb curry, black beans and pasta. We tested foods that would typically leave residual color on the container even after they had been washed multiple times.

Plus we tested foods that can be reheated in both the oven and the microwave. All were successful.

We also stored food in the container past the “best if eaten by” date to see if the container absorbed rancid smells. We are happy to report the container still smells clean.


First, The shape of the base and top are really nice looking and feeling.

Second, the baking dish and lid are easy to clean and both made it through the dishwasher.

Third, the dish and lid are very durable.

Fourth, the lid sticks tight to keep freshness in.


First, the lid can sometimes be a tad difficult to remove.

Second, we are worried that the snap sides could break, so we will have to do a follow up piece and let you know how it holds up.

Third, it’s a bit more expensive than a plastic container, but should have a long use life.

Fourth, Storage could be a problem if the lid is left off and if the lid is left on you need to make sure you dry the container well.

Overall Rating: 3/4 cup out of 1 cup. Emsa Storage container is a good buy for the everyday cook who doesn’t mind spending a little bit more and takes good care of their equipment.
