We bought two sets of these several years ago when woot had them. We use them on a daily basis and have never opened the second set. probably gonna order some for gifts. These are the best plastic storage sets ever.

These are not microwave safe. Bought this exact set on Amazon 3 weeks ago. Microwaving them makes the plastic bubble and peal.

Absolutely the BEST storage containers I have used. I was waiting for woot! to put these back up, and it hadn't happened for months... As luck would have it, I bought a couple of sets at JC Penney on clearance for $11 and $12 each. If it wasn't overkill, I'd buy this set today...

This is a good deal!! Although my favorite food containers are Rubber Made nesting with soft rubber like lids [url=hhttp://www.amazon.com/Rubbermaid-Easy-Find-Storage-40-Piece/dp/B0046RE9F0/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1355635942&sr=1-1/url]

You can't beat these Lock & Lock containers for general use, especially to square away stuff neatly in the rectangular shaped ones. These are air & waterproof and rugged!

I bought the 27oz rectangular box before a trip to Africa for a small first aid kit consisting of tweezers, surgical scissors, various sized bandaids & bandages, tape, eye dropper bottles of grain alcohol, hydrogen peroxide and a variety of salves. My laggage and tripod were damaged, but this container made through multiple connections from Mobile, Houston, NY, London, Malaga, Freetown, the back country of Sierra Leone, Amsterdam and back. I'm gonna make a smaller kit for day hikes and bigger kit to make room for the whole collection of "stuff".

I have two questions:

1. I realize the lids CAN come off, but if you chose to, could you keep them attached to their container with one of the snaps?

2. Would these be easy to open with one hand?

I work with a woman who is developmentally disabled who can't seem to hang on to her tupperware lids. I don't know where the hell all her lids disappear to, but we can never store any of her leftovers because of her missing lids and I'm not ready to submit to some As Seen on TV Mr. Lid crap to solve this problem. She also has had trouble opening some of the more heavy-duty tupperware containers in the past due to only having one working hand... I'm hoping these will be the perfect solution!

I have a shipload of Lock & Lock and love, love, love them all! I use the four-sided ones for dry storage and the round ones for refrigerator storage. I have had two tabs on the rounds break over the years (I'm guessing I've had mine for 4-5 years). I do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs good storage. I don't freeze things in them; I have other containers for freezing things.

I have no trouble opening these with one hand.

Although it is POSSIBLE to open with one snap still down (only opened three), the process of opening is likely to take that last snap off as well. The snaps are not secure if only one is depressed.

Great deal on a superior product. First-Ive bought dozens of sets over several years and have had one hinge go on one small round container, and I get some of these to nest in a fashion by placing paper towels between containers.

I find these containers better than others because:
-one handed upen & close
-fill to brim with non-liquids such as grapes and cherry tomatoes.
-stack well in refrigerator or freezer
-no lips or crevices to retain water so dry well in a dish drainer.
-can be used right out of the box except when they will be in direct contact with food.
-the different size containers. Sometimes I have no use for the larger containers and then I find myself filling all that I have. The smallest are great for individual portions and for chopped herbs or half lemon,garlic cloves

Too bad WOOT has to join all the rest of them to get anti-Chritmas (using X-MAS). I will not be buying any more stuff from WOOT from now on.

You do know that the "X" in Xmas is the Greek letter chi, right? as in the first letter in Christ's name (in Greek, Christos - Chi, iota, tau omicron, sigma). By writing Xmas, you are, in fact, using a symbol that has been used for Christ (chi) since the earliest days of Christianity, when followers of Christ were being persecuted.

If anything, you should be giving Woot even more of your hard-earned money for being old-school.

As the original poster suggested, we give one of these to our four-year old for snack every day, and he opens it himself.

To clarify, we put a snack in the container. The container is not his snack.

They are very easy to open and close. As long as you've got a flat surface to put it on you can even do it with one hand.

This is not a 36 piece set its a 18 piece set and the Dollar store sells these at $1.00 each except the smallers are 2 for a dollar. I can go these across the street for $17.00 instead of $25.00 here.

Yes we've had some of these for over a year and use them almost daily, no signs of cracking at all on the seems.

When I travel, I always pack a few Tide pods in one, and other possible leakables in others. Never had a problem.

In fact, this IS a 36 pc set.. Lids count as pieces: 18 containers + 18 lids = 36 pcs.

Now, care to tell us what dollar store carries these? I've been hard pressed to find ANYTHING resembling a quality product at a dollar store...

These lids will open up one handed,but try to keep one long side snapped for easy closing, or you'll need to use two hands to re-close. They re great air & waterproof containers, but in my opinion, for easier open and closing go with the Rubbermaid New Premier Food Storage Container Sets
[url=http://www.amazon.com/Rubbermaid-12-Piece-Premier-Storage-Container/dp/B000N3Z8HE/ref=pd_sim_hg_4[/url] and I've seen an even better deal here on WOOT, Just wait, it'll pop up again


and they will open one handed, all the way open or three sides. If they pop off all the way, it'll require two hands to snap closed...great for general storage. In my opinion, for food, get the Rubbermaid "New Premier Food Storage Container Set"

Although my favorite food containers are Rubber Made nesting containers w/ ]Visit Amazon[/url] nesting lids... Visit Amazon,I've seen similar deals on WOOT.

Incidently, you can beat these prices for Lock & Lock containers for general use. These are awesome, air & waterproof and rugged! WOOT deals are the best!

I love Lock & Lock. They are great for food storage, but what I like most about them is that the kids can easily open and close them so we have a lot of the larger containers for things like Lego and Squinkey storage. I have never had one wear out or break and they get used daily around here.

Nope, the same-sized containers do not nest. That's a drag because there are so many containers in this deal.
