Aldi Meal Prep Containers
Aldi has a set of Crofton Meal Prep Containers that may be perfect for your weekly Aldi meal prep. This Aldi Find is a set of Crofton Meal Prep Containers which are perfect to get you started with Aldi meal prepping.
The Crofton Meal Containers are reusable and safe for the fridge, freezer, microwave (base only), and dishwasher.
They are not oven safe however so if you want something that is oven safe you should go with something like this pyrex set.
Aldi has offered single, two, or three compartment versions of this product at different times of the year. In July 2022 they are offering a 20-piece set of the three compartment version and a 30-piece set of the two compartment container.
Is the Crofton Meal Prep Container a good deal?
I expect that the 20-Piece is in reality 10 containers + 10 Lids but this is still a great deal. Similar sets that include 10 complete meal prep containers are selling for $15-20 per set although there are some bigger sets that include 20 or more for about $20.
So the Crofton Containers from Aldi are about $0.40-$0.60 per container vs $1.00 per container that I found online. We will have to see the actual size of these containers to make a better comparison (these options on Amazon seem to be 28-32oz).
So overall if the quality of Aldi’s Meal Prep Containers is good this seems like a nice deal.

Aldi Meal Prep Container Reviews
Melted in the microwave
I made a batch of 4 frozen meals for lunches and this happened to all 4. Microwaved the meals for only 2 minutes after thawing at room temp and the bottom of the containers melted pretty badly. It’s just a regular microwave, not anything especially powerful. Disappointed because I was hoping to use these containers more than once, but I’m not returning them. I will use the rest of them for cold foods only.
Aldi Meal Prep Container
I find these containers “OK”. The lids fit OK, not always a tight fit, so avoid liquids. The lids do not seem to fit as well after first use, not as reusable. I have not used it in the microwave or freezer.
Lids wouldn’t fit and cracked first use. Nearly impossible to separate containers. Unfortunately I no longer have receipt due to not needing until now
