I'm looking at purchasing some containers for food storage. I'm really hoping someone has an idea where I could potentially get a kit (~24 piece depending on price) of varying sizes.


Briscoes sells them per container for around 16-30 PER container. Insane. I'm hoping there's like a starter kit to get a bit better pricing.




Any ideas? I saw stuff come on u-buy (thanks google) but immediately threw that idea in the bin.

Have a look for Pyrex kits. We bought one from the US and was much cheaper than sourcing it locally


You will find anything you want at MightyApe (affiliate link).

We bought glass containers in various sizes from the $2 shop. No kits like what you are wanting, but cheaper than briscoes.


Seems to do the trick.  I am assuming you are wanting for general storage of dry goods and not for pickling.


The ones with the metal clasp to close and seal the lid may be a little flimsy.  Look for ones that have a silicon seal around the lip

I was going to suggest Arthur Holmes in Wellington. My go-to for glass containers. But their website has been shut down as they have been overwhelmed with orders and limited stock.

Mitre10 have a selection of glass storage containers


Not sure about the quality however. You may need to mix and match. Most kits I've seen are 8 to 12 only. 


Also, have a look at Spotlight as well. They have a decent selection from time to time.
