Which preserves diced onions better? A plastic or metal container?? I'm trying to figure out which is a better storage container.

    Glass. Plastic absorbs smells, metal can react chemically. – Joe Jan 28 at 12:02

The key thing to look for is that the container closes as tight as possible. Metal or plastic doesn't matter. However, I would probably use metal or glass, since plastic can absorb some of the flavour of the raw onions. This would then make that container unsuitable for storing other things.

    And I hope that by 'metal' the OP means good stainless steel. Anything else is likely to react badly with the onion – George M Jan 30 at 22:10
