I want to take more salads, yogurt etc to work so looking for a leak proof container.
I've used rubbermaid container that I've had for years, ziploc bowls and they are just ok.
For home storage I almost always use pyrex (with the plastic lids) so not familiar on what's out there.
ETA: Also any ideas on what to put my cold brew in? I tried the ball jars with the white plastic lids (which was ok), and Bormioli Rocco jars (with metal twist lid) --- they were ok, but definitely need them to sit upright. For my iced coffee would love one dishwasher safe and super easy to clean (not lots of crevices) --- that's why I used those two jars. Plus I have lots of them at home. The price of a small cold brew or iced coffee really adds up, and I prefer to make mine at home. And saves so much $$.
The lock lids with the 4 sides seems to work fairly well...costco has them. I have a few when they first came out and were pricey. Still going strong...they've been through dishwasher, freezing, blah, blah.
Restaurant supply stores have plastic containers and some have a screw on lid; no idea how well they work tho
Thoreau said, 'A man is rich in proportion to the things he can leave alone.'
It will not spill no matter what. It can be upside down in your bag. It can go in the dishwasher. It keeps things HOT! I have a tea insert for mine and use is exclusively for hot tea. I also use a Contigo autoseal metal water bottle.

I want to second the Contigo coffee cup. I have an older model Ive had for ages. it is great. works for hot or cold never leaks. goes thru the DW just fine. I use a Contigo water bottle too, the one costco had with the locking round spout. rubbermaid makes screw top container. hold about 16 oz? mine are semi opaque plastic with green lids. they dont leak or shatter and are inexpensive. think they came in a set of 4. ETA I was wrong they are ziplock not rubbermaid. I think I got them at an ordinary grocery. they are plastic so fine for cold food but I dont like to microwave plastic. I have the glass rubbermaid containers with locking lids. they are nice, a bit bulky and of course breakable but you can reheat in them easily.
there is a rubbermaid set called Brilliance that might be what you want. not seen it in person.
