Lock & Lock 2-piece Flip Bin Storage Set
I bought these when they were first out. The flip-lids never fit tight from Day One. You don't "hear" a good seal, and once you think they're closed, you can open it with your little finger, basically just by touching it. So....air, bugs, whatever have easy access and these are completely, totally, 100% useless. Can't believe in the YEARS its been since they 1st had them, that they have not fixed that ---MAJOR-- !! flaw!
Not air-tight or water-tight
I was so excited to receive these, and hoped some of the reviews about them not being air-tight were a fluke. Unfortunately, they both leaked when I put some water in them. I ordered the blue, so maybe just that color? Either way, they have to go back. The sad part is that the outer edges are of course tight, but the flip lids don't even come close to a tight seal. I tested both containers, be sure to test yours. BTW, a container can't be air-tight without being water-tight.
Poor Customer Service from Lock & Lock
I bought 5 sets of these when they first came to QVC. I have never had a problem with them until today. My daughter came over to help me clean house since I am recovering after a month in the hospital and rehab. She dropped one of these and the lift flap broke. I thought Lock & Lock guaranteed their products so I called them since I had their phone number from some bowls that I had delivered today. The customer service rep I spoke to said they could send me another lid for $21.99! I explained all I needed was the lid and she advised me this is the cost of the lid only. I could understand charging me shipping and handling for the lid and even sending them back the damaged lid but not charging more than 2 brand new canisters. I told her I would be buying 2 more to replace the one canister from QVC. After I got off the phone my daughter showed me where I had bugs in my flour! So I am throwing out 2 canisters and replacing them. I have a kitchen full of Lock & Lock and Temptations and have always had good luck with these products but QVC really needs to check in on Lock & Lock warranties. Hurry and get back in the 3 cup bowls and the rectangular containers please. I have been trying to get these for awhile and have been on waitlist.
I bought these in June. I put sugar in one of mine. I noticed on Saturday, the locks on one is already broken and cracking. I was really shocked because I thought the quality would have been better than this.
I love lock & lock. I have been waiting for some pantry storage like these, but need handles, so I will wait awhile longer . Please give handles on the bigger lock & lock pieces.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Makes life so much easier store sugar, all purpose flour, white whole wheat flour, and cake flour . hot pink, purple just got lime . Have an african grey had problem with moths these keep moths out.
This is the only style of Lock and Lock I have ever had ants get in. I love Lock and Lock but in the trash these went, ants and all.
Seal not air-tight. Not for perishables!
I've had 2 of these for a while & thought they were fine. But recently had ants invade my pantry. I was horrified that ants got into the sugar thru the small flip lid in top of the bin. It was closed "tight". I now keep sugar in the package, inside zip lock bag, inside Lock N Lock canister marked "Sugar"
I had bought some sugar and flour containers at a chain store, still in the bags, when I saw that these had come back in stock. The lock and lock are far superior quality to what I had bought in a store. The store bought ones will be returned as they are not as nice, more expensive, and look like they would crack easily.
They easily fit a 5 lb bag of sugar or flour. I got two sets because I had bought a bag of self rising flour for a recipe, so I have a spare. They fit nicely in a pantry cabinet I just assembled. Love that they are air tight, so no creepy crawlies will get inside.
Asked for Seconds!
Bought for my daughters, my daughter-in-law, and myself. This was the only item so far they asked me to purchase more for them! Good capacity, loved being able to stack for storage, and easy for even grandchildren to use without making a mess.
L&L FLIP BIN SET
Surprisingly spacious ; these can be stored flat as they are shown or standup on the back end to save even more space with no fear of spillage; I may get another set.
