Lock & Lock 2-piece Flip Bin Storage Set
I bake all my bread. These hold a five pound bag of flour perfectly. Gave it four stars only because one of my lids was broken. They are sending me a new one. Flour stays fresh, easy to scoop flour out of the flip top. They are truly wonderful!!
I live in the country and have (and use) lock and locks EVERYWHERE! I have my pantry full as I can keep track of how much I have of what; bugs do not get in, staples stay fresh, use for small amounts of food in fridge (fruits keep much longer); use in bathrooms for storage of cotton balls, etc to keep moisture out; use in craft room to separate buttons, beads and larger capacity quilting pieces. Although they hold up extremely well when something did break the Company made it good immediately. My husband even uses them to hold ammo to keep moisture out. Just wish QVC stocked a better selection nowadays. (Also even with S&H QVC much cheaper than that national Walmart store on pricing)
Lids not snug tight
This was my first order of Lock & Lock . Using them to store flour & sugar in pantry . Well-made except a problem with lids that aren't very tight fitting . They don't snap shut with that loud click , the other parts have . They seemed okay at first , but after 2 weeks with minimal use , the lids closed more loosely with a soft snap sound . Unsure if they're airtight anymore . I'd only give as gift , if I could check the item for quality before giving .
Humidity Gets In
Now that I've had these a couple of months, storing flour and sugar, I am very disappointed. The seals are not good enough to keep out humidity....so my sugar is hardening into lumps, which makes it difficult to get out, unless you remove the entire lid altogether. I had high hopes - good size, easy to pick up even when full, fit nicely on the cabinet shelf. But if they can't keep the food fresh, it's a total loss. My cabinets are full of Lock n Lock, so this was quite disappointing.
This is my first lock & lock product. We use both everyday for our morning oatmeal with granola. The food stays fresh and the lid is easy open. But they do not stack on top of each other well. We have a very small apartment, so I assumed that I could stack them to save space. but the surface area is too smooth. I feared that the top bin would fall over and spill, so the oatmeal is in the kitchen and the granola in the dining room. I really like these but I would love them if they snapped together securely.
Great......but one suggestion for improvement.
Overall, these are fantastic!!!!!
For someone who bakes like me, they are a great way to maximize space and allow for easy access when measuring out ingredients.
Additionally, they are great for pet food too!
One suggested improvement would be to have a lip or grove on the top of the lid in order for the bins to be somewhat secured when stacked.
Should have bought more than one set
I have never bought/used Lock & Lock prior to this purchase so I only purchased one set not knowing what to expect. I now wish I had gotten at least two more sets. I use these for my brown sugar and white sugar. They are easy to fill and close. The front flap is perfect for measuring.
I got a total of 4 and love them. So easy to open. I've been a customer of Tupperware for 37 years. but .. out with Tupperware...in with Lock & Lock. This is a great deat on this product.
Best Containers ever
I bought a total of four and they are perfect. I live the locking feature and the color is perfect too.
I love it I wish they had 10 pound instead of 5
I loved it. I would like to see a bigger one for a 10 pound bags of sugar or flour I shop at SaMs Club. Other than that they work fine
Another fantastic Lock & Lock product!
I'm such a fan of Lock & Lock because it works great. These are just what I needed to store cereal and cookies! easy to open/close and to refill. Great deal because I got two.
I LOVE these storage containers! I currently have flour and sugar in mine. They are perfect in my pantry! They keep my ingredients fresh and they are easy to work with. I've turned into quite a Lock and Lock girl! Keep them coming, QVC!
