Glass Food Containers, 2020 Editor’s Featured item and Top Picks

Our web search indicates the following about tempered glass and borosilicate glass: Both tempered glass and borosilicate glass are stronger and more resistant to thermal shock than regular glass. Tempered glass has been treated with a process to make it stronger and more resistant than regular glass but may not withstand extreme temperature changes as borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass, composition of which is 80% silica, 13% boric oxide, 4% sodium oxide and 2–3% aluminum oxide, is durable to extreme temperature changes such as from freezer to oven rack, has a low coefficient of thermal expansion which is the rate at which the glass expands when it is exposed to heat, less susceptible to fractures because it has a higher proportion of silicon dioxide, known for its resistance to chemical changes, and traditionally used in chemistry labs. High borosilicate glass is usually thinner and lighter than tempered glass. Any glass container or bakeware has risk of breakage. Reading through various research materials on tempered or borosilicate glass is recommended.
