Tis the season for soups and stews. While we love the process of making, simmering, and, of course, savoring soups, storing the leftovers isn’t always the most delightful part of the process. And, since having leftovers (which you can eat all week or freeze for a rainy day) is kind of the point of cooking up a big pot of soup, we figured someone should fix this. 


Below, find our top container picks to make the soup-storage step as easy and convenient as the rest of your favorite throw-it-all-together recipe.

Souper Cubes

These Souper Cubes make it easy to freeze soups in perfect portions, ideal for a big batch of bone broth or meal prep, portion-controlled meals, and other recipes. Each 1-cup well has measurement lines denoting ½ cup, 1 cup, 125 mL, and 250 mL. Made of food-grade silicone, they’re dishwasher and even oven safe up to 415 degrees Fahrenheit.

Porter Seal Tight Bowl

W&P’s Porter Seal Tight Bowl is a popular soup storage container for a reason. With a glass bowl, screw-top lid, and silicone sleeve, it’s leakproof, convenient, and even aesthetically pleasing with six different color options. On top of that, it’s microwave-safe so you can heat up your leftovers in the same container you eat them from, and when all is said and done, you can pop the bowl directly into the dishwasher. Bowls are available in a one- or two-pack sized 16 or 24 ounces. You can’t ask for much more from a container.

Made of heavy duty plastic and available in various sizes, you’ll have just the right container for everything; they’re less flimsy than what you get from your local deli but not so precious that you’ll want to keep them forever. They’re perfect if you often make soup to share with friends or family, because you won’t have to worry about asking for your container back.
