Food storage containers have come a long way from the Tupperware my mom once swore by. A growing number of smaller, mission-based brands are making everything from pretty silicone storage bags to clever, flexible wraps. And if these creative solutions weren’t already awesome enough, Stojo added a new one to the mix: sustainable, stylish, and fully collapsible storage bowls. In fact, these clever containers are so cool that they sold out within a week of launching and even racked up a 2,000-person waitlist! Well, consider yourself warned because the containers are finally back in stock and ready to be snapped up ASAP.
For those unfamiliar with Stojo, they’re a sustainable brand that creates stylish and clever storage solutions with a twist — all of their products compress to an almost flat design, making them perfect, fuss-free companions for people who live in small spaces or are always on the go. Some of Stojo’s earlier launches include collapsible cups and bottles, while their bowls tackle a whole new category: food storage.
Priced at $20, each bowl holds up to an impressive 36 ounces of liquid. Plus, the airtight screw-top lid is fitted with four clasps to prevent any leaks or messes. Another major pro? No more smelly, stained containers. I have been using my bowl to store all kinds of colorful, oily leftovers, and I’m happy to report that, unlike many plastic containers, these don’t get discolored or retain any food smells. I also pop them in the dishwasher after every use (the brand recommends placing them on the top rack) and they always come out looking brand new.
I was understandably concerned about the effects of using silicone for my food storage, but Stojo’s silicone containers are LFGB Certified, which is a European safety standard and, according to the company, far stricter than FDA regulations. And since the silicone used is food grade, it’s totally safe to fill it with piping hot meals without worrying about any nasties leaching into your food. Plus, you don’t have to worry that anything will break if you accidentally drop your bowl. How do I know, you ask? Well, let’s just say that accidents happen, and as someone with a bad case of butterfingers, I’d know.
While these bowls are great for meal prep or storing leftovers, they’re going to be incredibly handy once the weather gets warmer and park lunches are the norm. So go ahead, choose your color —but be quick about it because, given the bowl’s uber-popular track record, it’ll likely sell out very fast.
