We have 3 sizes and have used the original ones for over a year now and still going. They're lightweight but hold up well.
better than i expected
At first i didnt know what to think of these containers - they were quite lightweight. But after using them for about 3 months now - I am convinced they are of good quality. Highly recommended.
I love the colors and the abilty to store multiple meals in the freezer. These are perfect for that.
I love, love, love these containers. The colors help to keep things organized, the size is perfect for my meal prepping needs, they are durable and stackable to save space. LOVE LOEV LOVE!
I love having the colors for carb cycling. I meal prep for a few days and know what days are what without confusion. If your going to do anything more than 10-13 oz of food, go up to the next size.
color coding helps
i ordered some of these to help with my prep for an upcoming show and to also have some extras so my wife would quit stealing mine. The colored trays make it easy for me to just grab my food and go without grabbing any of her stuff. and of course they go with me in my iso bag everywhere i go.
I get asked constantly where I found the colored containers. My boyfriend and I both meal prep and this size is perfect for all of our portions. My only concern is that we haven't had them long and two of our containers already have chipped corners :(
I loved the colors! Unfortunately didn't realize how small they were so I had to exchange for the larger sizes that only come in black :( it was also pretty expensive to return too...
But I am happy with the larger sizes. I love that they stack well. I was able to get rid of my old containers that took up so much space!
These are my favorite containers! I own a 3 meal & 6 meal IsoBag. One of the containers had a chip on the corner from shipping and Isolator Fitness sent a replacement right out! Great customer service and great product! They don't leak, hold up in the microwave & dishwasher. I won't ever buy any other containers for meal prep.
I got the green containers to match my Isobag. They stack nicely in the fridge and hold up great in the dish washer. It's nice to have different color options, keeps me from mixing up meals with my girlfriend (she has the purple containers).
I Love these Containers!
I love these containers, makes my meal prep life so much easier and adds a little fun to my meal prep! I love how they stack.
i love it
I love the containers they are just the right size for my meals.
I love the colors especially the green.
A meal prep MUST
I've been using the Isolator containers for a little over a year now and love them. They hold up to constant use, going in and out of the refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. My only problem was having to write on the lid what meal it was. Now I don't have to. I color code each meal to its own color. Monday - gold, Tuesday- purple, etc... Makes meal prepping 100 times easier to keep in order and organized!! I LOVE them and recommend them to anyone who wants a SUPER easy way to meal prep without the hassle!
Love the colors
I bought a 25 pack of the purple containers love the color makes packing your lunch more fun than the normal black containers! Thank you ISO for making such fun colors.
Love the colored containers makes food prep so much easier.
Our Meal Prep Containers Boast Quality: Here are a few reason why you should select ISO meal prep containers
When you buy a meal prep container that has been made in North America, you're getting a guarantee that the product is compliant with a higher caliber of safety requirements than those that are made in Eastern countries such as:
Recycled polypropylene brings with it a host of problems, including the fact that it’s never guaranteed that the plastic used to make your new food containers, hasn’t previously been used for things like lawn furniture, or storage pails. These recycled products can be rather dirty and thus contain trace amounts of these contaminants, that are then transferred to your plastic meal prep containers. Buy virgin polypropylene plastics for your food containers and you won’t have to worry about what toxins may be lurking in, on, or around your meals. The most important quality your meal prep containers need to have is being made from virgin polypropylene. Everyone loves recycling and recycled products because they are good for the environment, but when it comes to the container that is going to hold food items that you plan to ingest, you need to make sure it's not made from a recycled plastic. Our Meal Prep Containers Have Only Ever Been Meal Prep Containers
Buying Isolator Fitness meal prep containers also means that you can be sure that the plastic in which you’re storing food that will eventually be put into your body is: 100% BPA Free Prop 65 compliant Phthalate-Free Eco-friendly The plastic that we use is lighter, and thinner than other products, ensuring that we do not waste any precious resources, but also strong enough to stand up to everyday use, because they are infact intended to be used every day.
ISO meal prep containers are designed and built to be used every single day, to be tossed between, freezer, refrigerator, meal prep bag, microwave, sink, and dishwasher all in the course of the day and to be ready to face it all again the very next day if necessary.
BPA, otherwise known as bisphenol A., is an industrial chemical that is found in certain food and beverage plastic containers. It is possible that the BPA chemical can cause negative health effects related to the brain, prostate gland, and behavior of fetuses, infants, and young children. It is also possible for this chemical to seep into the food or beverage which are held within containers containing it, which is why buying BPA plastic is vitally important to the health of your family.
Undertaking the task of meal prepping for a single person can result in the use of as many as 40 meal prep containers in a single week (depending on how frequently a person eats, and how many meals they’ll be meal prepping ahead of time). For an entire family, that number can become quite a bit larger. Investing in space efficient meal prep containers is important to ensuring that they will all fit in your freezer, fridge, and cupboards.
Microwave, Dishwasher, Freezer Safe
Freezer storage capability is essential. Having a product that can keep your food fresh in the freezer, without worrying about cracking, or breaking of the plastic, or freezer burn on the food is key. It is especially convenient to have these same containers be microwave and dishwasher safe as well, so that from storage to clean up, you’ve only dirtied, and have to clean, one container.
Did You Know:
Products made from recycled plastics often come from unhygienic and unsafe recycling sites. (http://apecsec.org/pros-and-cons-of-recycling/) These sites are often the homes of millions of bacteria that cause the spread of diseases and cause infections. These toxins are often captured within the recycled materials found there. I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound like a place I want my mouth anywhere near! Don't get me wrong, I'm all for recycling. In fact, my outdoor chairs are made from recycled plastic materials, but then again I don't store food on my outdoor chairs...
The facts are in. Meal prep containers MATTER! Everything about the container matters, from the materials used to make it, to the manufacturing process, the sites on which they were constructed, and which countries those manufacturing plants happen to be within. All of these factors go into determining the quality and dependability of the meal prep container that you’re about to buy. Make sure that you know your facts, about your containers before you buy, because these facts have the ability to affect your health and safety, as well as the health and safety of your loved ones.

Meal Prep is also about Economy of Time
What's the last thing you want to do after a long day at work, and often the first thing you have to do? COOK!
No one likes to rush home from work only to have to work more by preparing a healthy meal for their family. This leads to a multitude of problems.
- Less healthy meals
- Less time with your family
- More fast food/restaurant meals
- More stress
There's an easy solution to this problem though, and it's guaranteed to work every single time. Prepare your weekly meals before the week begins, and store them in meal prep containers in your refrigerator or freezer until you're ready to eat them. It's so simple that it actually works.
Once the meals are prepared it's like having your very own stash of the healthiest TV dinners available. Pop your pre packaged containers into the microwave and in minutes of getting home you'll be eating a healthy, homemade meal.
Having an abundance of fresh pre made meals at your disposal will benefit your life in a few different aspects. You will find that you are:
- Saving money
- Staying on track with a more nutritious diet
- Hungry less often
- Less busy
- Less stressed
- More organized
- More productive
You'll save money by avoiding the drive thru's and skipping the restaurant meals instead opting for more nutritious foods prepared for your family by you. That's how you'll stay on track and stick to a healthier diet and also how you'll make sure that your family is healthy and happy. Since you're now fueling your body with the nutrients it craves you'll find that you're hungry less often.
Since you're spending less time cooking you'll find you have more time which will lessen your stress. Last but certainly not least when you're meals are pre made and organized in appropriate containers your life will seems more organized, and you'll find you have more time do focus on the important things in life, making you happier and more productive.
I'm getting ahead of myself though. There is one key component to meal prepping that has to be addressed so that you can make the most of your meals. You need quality meal prep containers.
What does the container matter? You might ask yourself. Lucky for you I have the answer. Take a look at the table below and see if you have a preference of which meal prep container you'd rather eat from.
You probably have a pretty strong opinion about which meal prep container you want to use now, don't you?
