For all of you who make extra and freeze for another dinner, what do you use as containers? Glass? Gladware? Saranwrap and foil? What works best at keeping freezerburn at bay, and how do you reheat? Do you thaw before reheating?

I use the Pyrex glass dishes with rubber lids. Yes I thaw before reheating in the oven.

What type of vacuum sealer bags? Are they really expensive I seen something at Sam's but the cost was really high. I didn't know if its really worth it or not and just use ziplock????

Oh i know what you mean, they are really expensive and even though I wanted one I had been holding out a long time. then this reynolds one came out and it was only $9 and $3 for the bags so I thought it was worth a try. http://www.reynoldspkg.com/reynoldsk...ac/en/home.asp
Its works great but unfortunately you cannot reuse the bags.

I haven't seen those but that looks great. Even to just try to use them to see if its even an item you would use enough to justify purchasing the other unit. I'll have to look for one.

All of the above. I use vacuum bags (we have a Foodsaver), Gladware and Tupperware, and ziptop bags. depends on what it is and what I have on hand. I also like to freeze things (soups, chilis, broth, etc. -- liquidy stuff) in Tupperware and then pop it out and put it in a bag so I can have the Tupperware back for everyday use.

HTH.
