These containers are super. First, let's get the slightly negative point out of the way: the smallest sizes are not much use (IMHO) for using in the kitchen. Maybe they'd be OK for a few nuts or bread crumbs ... but they're small. (OTOH I am *very* happy to say that they are very useful in my toolboxes for sorting out my random collections of screws, washers, nuts and bolts, etc etc. Very happy. :-) ) That leaves about 11 or 12 of the other sizes for kitchen use, which is what we bought them for.
First, the sizes are very handy - just what's needed for leftovers, prepared meals, etc.
Second, they are well designed so they store easily - quite stackable, even the different shapes and sizes.
Third the lids are mostly interchangeable. Not completely, obviously (the rectangles don't fit the squares, the big ones don't fit the little boxes, etc) but pretty well: the smaller tall boxes use the lids from the small flat boxes, etc.
Next, the lids are effective. My other half has a rigorous test: fill the boxes half full with water, turn upside down and shake. Not a drop leaked out.
Last, the boxes are quite light, not too much extra weight to carry around.
They seem fine in the microwave and freezer, but we don't have a dishwasher to test that. As for lifetime, only time will tell, but so far, and at the price, we are delighted.
(Tiny, tiny word of warning: one or two of the edges were a bit sharp when they were brand new and I got a couple of 'papercuts' from careless handling. After a few weeks the rough edges got worn smooth. Not a big deal)
These are good.
2x 14x14x16cm / (5 1/2x5 1/2x6 1/4") Bucket/tower shape
2x 12x12x14cm / (4 3/4x4 3/4x 51/2") Bucket/tower shape
2x 23x16x8cm / (9x6 1/4x3 1/4") Sandwich tub shape
2x 14x14x6cm / (5 1/2x5 1/2x2 1/4") Sandwich tub shape
2x 12x12x4cm / (4 3/4x4 3/4x 1 1/2") Sandwich tub shape
3x 12x8x4cm / (4 3/4x3 1/4x1 1/2" Sandwich tub shape
4x 9x9x4cm / (3 1/2x3 1/2x1 1/2") Sandwich tub shape
Haven't had a chance to use them but simply opening and putting the lids back on they seem sturdy.
I was looking for something to bring sandwiches into work in and these seem fine. The two large sandwich tubs are a tiny bit larger than an average paperback book in both length and width to give an idea.
Not sure what i'll put in the tiny tubs or bucket shaped ones but probably dry food for the kitchen!
However, the plastic can get a bit of a colour from the food. More precisely, one or two of mine got red(ish) from some tomato based sauce (bolognese) I held in it. Not a big deal, but not for the perfect rating either.
It would be nice to have a better range of middle-sized ones.

I purchased this product under the impression it was BPA free (this is not a reflection of the seller, however. This was in response to a comment made to a question above). Read morePublished 3 days ago by ALLFLUK
Really great but a few to many small ones which don't have to much use.Published 5 days ago by fractal
This product is OK for the price. I just wanted it for storing parts and other bits and bobs at work. I wouldn't use it for food storage due to the poor seals. Read morePublished 6 days ago by yani
These plastic containers are without a doubt the worst I have ever bought. Too many piddly little ones which are of no use to anyone and the plastic is very flimsy. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Tuscany
