What have you found to be the best storage and microwavable units for dysphagia food menus?
I've got a good mini food processor, am still looking for a small potato masher for small containers of fruit from MOW, but have had problems with storage units.
I've used a particular well known brand, pureed the MOWs, refrigerated them and Dad microwaves them to heat them up when he's ready for a meal.
Now I've noticed that there's a type of "fraying" of the plastic in the containers. In the past I haven't microwaved that often, so I was unfamiliar with this deterioration and didn't realize until I contacted the manufacturer that the containers were only mean for 30 second maximum heating in a microwave. Recommendation was to throw them away, so that's over a dozen containers that will be deposited in the recycling bin.
As a result, I'm searching for containers than handle up to a few minutes of reheating w/o deteriorating.
My sister had some very good ones which I also use, more like the quality of Melamine. But the manufacturer said they "probably" are not being produced any more. Searching in the kitchen section of a Target a few days ago, I saw only the lighter weight containers like the ones that haven't worked out for us.
A friend suggested Corelle, but again I only saw the cheaper thinner containers. I really want something substantive that will last.
Any suggestions? What do you use to reheat meals, and are they BPA free? That was one of the advantages of the containers I bought. No BPA is mandatory.
Thanks for any suggestions.
