As is your choice, of course I don't consider it Russian Roulette when the odds are so high, but YMMV.

This is not in reply to anyone in particular but something that I want to keep in the forefront of my mind.

Plastic, greasy or not, bags or not, when discarded take a LONG time to disintegrate/biodegrade, if ever.

That's my main reason for wanting to switch to glass and to avoid plastic. That AND the grease!
I'm not proposing that everyone should think like me, though.

HowStuffWorks "How long does it take for plastics to biodegrade?"

Google "hygiene hypothesis" and read for a while.
I had to be careful for a full year after chemo for my immune system to get up to snuff and two years before I could get any immunizations.

Amazon and QVC sell the Lock 'n Lock containers. I prefer to use those take out containers. A piece of plastic film over the contents and then the lid. No freezer burn. Our family just loves take out.

re Lock 'n Lock - Unfortunately they (Amazon and QVC) have very little choice. Before the changeover in importers, you could buy any lock 'n lock on their site - now I have to get them from China or India! And it is actually cheaper, even with shipping, to buy them overseas than from Amazon.

Sometimes you can find them in Asian grocery stores for pretty ok prices.

I have never seen a single Lock 'n Lock in any grocery store I've ever been in - and only in one Asian grocery. I've never even seen them in the kitchenwares section of a department store. BBB has like one or two types once in awhile. I'd say you're pretty lucky!

My first ones I got at Linens and Things before they went out of business. I saw the Bins on TV and ordered them through a website. The rest I have gotten at the grocery store. I am pretty diligent about looking for them. I found L'nL water bottles, too, they are extremely easy to clean.
