These Are the Best To-Go Containers for Potluck Leftovers - Shopping
From The Kitchn - November 14, 2017

Leftovers are one of the very best things about both potlucks and Thanksgiving dinners, so leftovers from a Thanksgiving potluck are the most exciting leftovers of all. You might have brought a casserole, but now you get to take home green beans, gravy, potatoes, and a little bit of everything else provided. Huzzah!

That's why it's a smart and thoughtful move for a host to stock up on some takeout containers before the party. Not just any to-go container will do, though. The containers need to be good enough to help people get food home, but not so good that you care about getting them back. That's why these restaurant-quality to-go containers are perfect.

Anyone who has ever ordered takeout from a restaurant knows the struggle of a bad container versus a good one. A tinfoil swan looks cute until you have to reheat the food. A container that's too flimsy does not help anyone. A leaky one is enough to make you want to unfriend your once-gracious host. A heavy-duty restaurant-quality container, on the other hand, well, that's just right! And one with various compartments is even better.

All of that's to say that we prefer a bento-style restaurant-level to-go container. You can buy them online fromWebstaurant Store, an online restaurant supply store. They sure are handyeven though they are not much to look at. They are BPA-free; microwave-, dishwasher-, and freezer-safe; and they are lightweight enough to carry easily, but durable enough to support heavy foods like mashed potatoes without bending or cracking.
