The Friends of Glass team recently came across Wean Green’s website and instantly fell in love with their colourful and glassy food containers. We also couldn’t help but share their brilliant Tomato Sauce Experiment, carried out by the founder herself, which just shows how safe, reusable and truly natural glass is!
The Tomato Sauce Experiment by Melissa Gunning as featured on Wean Green’s website
Having an impermeable and non-porous container is the shizzle right? If you understand what that really means, than yes, it rocks! I spoke to someone the other day and told them I did this experiment and now I will share the Tomato Sauce Experiment.
I used a tempered glass Wean Green Wean Cube and a BPA Free Plastic Container that I purchased just for this experiment. Both had never been used before and both were given the exact same treatment.
The ultimate showdown. The containers before I tortured them.
The tomato sauce goes in…the suspense builds.
The real test is about to begin as they are placed in the microwave.
What will happen after 5 minutes in the cooker?
They don’t look so bad? Do they?
Time for a bath! Both containers are scrubbed…and scrubbed…and scrubbed.
After all that scrubbing this is as clean as I could get the containers. Accidentally scratched one with my hard cloth.
So to further explain my opening statements…Impermeable = nothing can get through, it is impassable. Non-porous = air, water, fluids (& tomato sauce) are not able to cross the surface. It does not allow them through.
What this means for you = your food stays in the container and the container does not put any parts of the container in your food or take any parts of your food from the container.
Conclusion = Wean Green tempered glass food containers do not allow food to pass into the glass nor do they allow for anything inside the glass to pass into your food, keeping your food fresher, healthier and more awesome.
