Quick Answers



I'm having trouble getting the lids to stay tightly closed on my rigid freezer containers.

This can be a problem. If lids of rigid containers don't fit tightly, it's a good idea to place freezer tape where the container and lid join. Otherwise, food stored in containers with loose lids may experience freezer burn.
