Ramekins/Prep Bowls

I have a number of pyrex 4oz prep bowls I use to prep ingredients. Problem is there is often more than needed to be refrigerated and I have to cover them with cling wrap.

Does anybody here know of a set of (ideally pyrex or ceramic) prep bowls that come with airtight, BPA free covers?

I wouldn't worry about the covers, just wrap em, it's only temporary. In the short run its better.

These are multi purpose jars. Mason jars can also go in microwave (melt butter etc.), Instant Pot, oven, fridge and freezer. You can get plastic lids also. I can find these in grocery stores or a Target type department store.
I love Ball jars and use them for everything.

Here is the Amazon page. You can probably get a smaller set. Hope this helps.

I love this idea. I have a few of those, but usually use them for short term storage of small amounts of something. They would make a good addition to my collection of small, shallow prep bowls.

Great idea, but alas they won't stack... meaning they will take up too much space.

Msmofet, do those jars nest when they don't have a lid on?

I store them with lids on in the box. Never nested them for fear of chipping edge.
