Glass food storage: Luminarc vs Pyrex vs GlassLock?

I ended up going with a bunch of these from Canadian tire, as the price was too good .... ~7$ for a set of 3 (on sale price, regularly $20 for the set). The lids also were advertised as BPA free.

Anchor Hocking Round Glass Storage, 4-Cup

•4-cup round glass storage container with red lid

•Convenient size for glass food storage

•Microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer and oven-safe

I did also buy a few glasslock containers at full price for storing portable liquids/soups etc. since the ancor ones dont have any snap/lockable lids (just a plain old lid). At least both types I bought are easy to clean.

Glass food storage: Luminarc vs Pyrex vs GlassLock?

Hey so what's the best option to go with? I'm pretty much looking for the same thing as you, oven, microwave, dishwasher, freezer safe, glass.

Rubbermaid glass easy find lid seem to do it all but some reviews make it look like the lids are a PITA to clean and also they dont always form a good seal, so probably not good for soups... i may buy some of these and some glasslocks for soup...

let me know what you think
