Lock & Lock 2-piece Flip Bin Storage Set
I LOVE THESE.
I ordered 2 sets of these Flip Bin Storage containers in the color burnt orange at the beginning of January. While they were in route to my home, I began reading the reviews. A lot of people said that these bins were not air tight where the top bends. I thought OH HECK!!! I figured whatever I put in them would go stale. When they arrived, I washed them and decided to put my Keurig K-cups in one, and believe me, one of these holds a lot of K-cups. I sat that one next to my orange Keurig coffee maker and I realized that this so called burnt orange was really a perfect match to my beautiful pure orange color Keurig (thank you Lock & Lock). I finally decided to take a chance and poured my two big boxes of cereals (one of these containers hold a big 1 pound box of cereal) in two of these bins. I sat them on top of my refrigerator, and there thy sat until today (3/24/15). I decided to have some cereal and to my surprise, the cereal was just as fresh and crunchy after almost 3 months of sitting on top of my refrigerator. Usually, my cereal goes stale after one month if I don't properly seal and tape those bags up tightly. I would like to tell everyone that I did use my hand to tap around the bend of the container, and this may have put the "lock" in this set of Lock & Lock. I filled the fourth container with my own special blend of super food that I use in my Ninja every morning so I guess its still fresh also. So if anyone is having second thoughts about purchasing this product, try it and just make sure that where the top bends, just lightly bang on it before you lock it down. These containers are big and will hold a lot of whatever you put in them so I'm ordering 2 sets of the green as soon as I press submit for this review.
Wish they locked to be stackable
I purchased these hoping that I could stack them one on top of the other as they appeared in the online video. I assumed that they would somehow lock together to stack but was disappointed that they did not, it sure looked like they did in the video. I chose to send them back and purchased a taller bin set to store my cat's food on the counter side by side rather than stacking on top of each other.
Better than expected
I put off ordering any more lock & lock because I have so many. I finally decided to go for these. Oh my! I love them. I was able to get them on a shelf closer to the stand mixer and that makes them soooooo convenient. The lids lock upright and stay open. You can drag the measuring cup alone the top to level off. Perfect!
Love Lock & Lock
Great product, love that I can organize and get everything out of bags. I have purchased multiple sets and have given as gifts.
Hope to have more!
I need to order some more. Hoping that they'll come out with more colors. Love the flip bin store my flour,sugar and other dry goods in them.
I had my first experience with "Lock N Lock" products at Christmas time when I ordered the "Mittens" set and fell in love with the product so I decided to order these to put opened bags of cereal in to keep fresh. The work perfectly and definitely solve a big problem in my household! I do have to admit, I had a little bit of a problem seeing where the "opening latch" was but firgured out once I put my glasses on! LOL
Lock N Lock designers may want to take that into consideration in future releases.
These are exactly what I needed for my cupboard. Got rid of the leaky Flour & Sugar Bags.
I got the red to match my kitchen, they are also very easy to get in and out of.
Great for dog treats
I had a large Jar that I kept the dog treats in & I knocked it off the counter & broke in a million pieces. I wanted something to keep the in & not have those little moths ! The only problem with these are there pretty hard to open. But they are air tight s no worry of getting those little moths that once you get - you can't get rid or ! I would recommend - wish they were a little larger !
Great storage containers
I really love these containers. Wish I had more room to order more, but don't. With the 2 I have, oatmeal is in one and macaroni in other. So easy to scoop out the correct amount. Lids snaps close very nice. You will love these. Highly recommend.
I absolutely love these. They will hold a 5 lb; bag of sugar or flour and easily measures out. And if you drop em they will stay "locked". They are super!
I love this product I have a whole bunch in my kitchen it helps me organize the pantry and also keep things nice and clean
My Favorite Lock And Lock Pieces!!!
I have several lock and lock pieces and these are my favorite. I am thinking of so many places I can use them throughout the home. Will definitely order more. I just hope QVC keeps them in stock!!!
