  17. It is preferable to use reusable glass containers (Pyrex, Corning Ware, etc) as they are able to transition from freezer to fridge to oven or microwave easily.  They are also environmentally conscious and last a lifetime.  The cost of this is will usually be less than $150.  This cost is passed directly to you, and these dishes are yours to keep.  A less expensive option is to use plastic containers (Glad, Ziploc, Rubbermaid).  These containers will require you to transfer the food to oven safe containers for reheating.
