Sadly, I don't think it does.

Which begs the question, what exactly makes this the "holiday set?"

Homemade cookies included? I see no disclaimer... *Hopes are rising*

Red? We put holiday cookies in the picture?

Are we the consumer allowed to choose the holiday we use these on?

Debating if would be superior for mailing cookies than a typical cookie tin.

They offered these as a promo gift with stamps at my local grocery and they are the best storage containers I have (besides by glass pyrex)! This is a great buy! Individually these would cost much more!

I have this set. Sturdy, doesn't leak (even soup), easy to wash, and can be microwaved and used in the freezer. Excellent for this college student who eats left over for half the week.

Those round ones are perfect for my mini lemon bundt cakes.

Obviously they won't be sending us the cookies guys, but we can ask the important questions like:

Which member of the woot staff made the lovely little cookies in the photo? And more importantly, did you guys get to eat them afterwards?

A REVIEW
I bought the smaller set a few weeks agao and so far, I'm impressed. I generaly hate plastic storage ware because they retain smells and really hold on to grease (there's a scientific reason for this ... plastics are made from petroleum, and generally speaking, oil attracts oil). This probably isn't a problem if you have a dishwasher, but we hand wash and it often takes 2-3 scrubbings and rinses to clean a container. Well, these are surprisingly easy to clean and don't seem to retain odors as much. One container still smelled like garlic after scrubbing but the smells dissipated after a few days (don't cover). And they definitely don't discolor because of food, i.e. tomato sauce. And the locks prevent the broken nails I used to get from opening cheaper containers. So far, I'm impressed.

A HINT
It's a good idea to take out the silicone gasket now and then to let them air out. Otherwise, water that is trapped inside can get moldy.

Warning: Lock&Lock have sold out their different BPA-free sets quickly, whether on woot or sellout.woot this year. The last one sold out shortly after 2 p.m. Central for the 28 piece last October (and yes, I have bought a set earlier this year):

Got these the last time they were up.

I like them. They are well made and work ok.

HOWEVER THEY ARE VERY SMALL!

Look at the dimensions... most of these aren't good for storing more than a small leftover.

These aren't good for packing lunch, etc. They are good for packing desert and very small leftovers.

Now that I think about it, this set may be better for storing spices, rather than food.

I bought 3 sets of the ones on woot amonth or two ago. One set came with a couple of damaged lids but woot were fast and replaced them (thumbs up woot!).
As to their use, I really like them so far and theyve replaced many of the plastics in the kitchen (kept a few "disposable" ones for tomato sauces that stain etc).

Id buy these if I needed more - this company seems to be aggresively pushing them as Ive seen sales in various places for them recently (plum dist/eversave and their own website), maybe trying to corner the market

Whoo hoo, in for 3!! I love my Lock & Locks, and was thinking about getting some more.
So 1 set for me, 1 for mom for Xmas, and one for mother-in-law for Xmas...that just about finished off my shopping for the year!!

So far, can't find the exact set at Lock&Lock, but this is the closest I can find so far: their section of "sets":

http://www.locknlockplace.com/index.php/food-containers/set.html

The 32 piece set doesn't match, so I wonder if Woot got a special deal on the colors.

Are these the same 'duty' as their other models? Do these differ in color only? This isn't a pliable thickness of plastic, is it? Are these are 'hard'?

I'm pretty sure the cookies (in the largest container with a lid on) with white frosting are from Target... You know what, I think the Christmas Tree cookies are too. Those ones are good!

For the plus side - to the recipient it would defintely be more useful after the cookies were eaten.

On the negative side - these are plastic and would have to survive whichever mailing service you sent them through and may not do as well as a tin that can dint.

The name is stupid, but these are so great! I remember that a medium sized container cost me about 7.99 by itself a couple years ago, so this is a great deal.

A HINT
Keep in mind these have an upper temperature limit of 210°F. Water reaches a rolling boil at 212°F. In other words, you can't cook in these, or even microwave anything to the point of a rolling boil.

Also keep in mind that foods high in oil or grease will heat higher than 212°F in a microwave. That can melt the plastic so monitor the container carefully. Once the food is reheated, stop the microwave. You can see the effects of overheating in styrofoam takeout boxes from salad bars. Microwaving often results in holes that are brown from frying in the heated oil.

i bought one of these last time and on one of them, the lid part that does the locking is already breaking away from the rest of the lid. obviously i could've gotten a defective one but not happy at all.

The previous Woot in October had 28 pieces for $14.99. This is 4 more pieces (2 containers + lids) for $19.99. Are we paying extra for holidayness? If it comes with cookies it would be worth it...

I use them to store our bird food and nuts. We used to get pantry moths a lot, and using these have effectively eliminated them. I also wish more of the larger sizes were included.

Bought a similar set a few months ago, love them, and have been chasing the dragon waiting for them to reappear. Buy them now -- they will sell out.

Agreed. I was thinking about buying them, but then I saw that 5 of the 9 container sizes are 12 ounces or less (going all the way down to 4.8 ounces). That's 12 of the 16 containers! I can't imagine what I'd use resealable containers that small for...maybe two cookies? (Hmmm, I guess I can imagine it...I just wouldn't do it.)

Are all of the Lock & Lock sets like this, or do some come in actually usable sizes?

absolutely wonderful set, genuinely air-tight, as a previous wooter has stated, it really does hold in liquids without any disastrous spills.
