It’s inevitable—we all end up with that one cabinet in the kitchen that we never want to open. The one where we store all of our mismatched plastic storage containers and lids that fall out the second the door is opened. Luckily, Amazon has a solution: The ORBLUE Silicone Stretch Lids ($15.87; amazon.com).
The best-selling lids are sold in a set of six with sizes ranging from 2.6 inches to 8.3 inches and stretch to fit sizes a little larger than their diameter. The silicone storage covers are microwave safe (no more food splatters!) and dishwasher safe. There's only one problem, you say, all your containers are square. Don't fret, although the lids are circular, they can stretch to fit containers in a variety of shapes.
Instead of transferring food from a serving bowl to a fridge-friendly container with lid, you can simply grab one of the lids that correspond to the size of your dish and stretch it over the edges. The lids can also be used for produce, like half of a spaghetti squash, or to cover a can or cup that you want to save for later. Additionally, they are environmentally friendly eliminating the need for pesky plastic wrap that doesn't want to stay in place and may not keep food as fresh as it should.
