Lock & Lock 2-piece Flip Bin Storage Set
I had been postponing getting this set - kinda glad I waited because I was fortunate enough to catch the 4-hour easy pay special last week and I purchased all the lock and lock sets I've wanting. This set is perfect for my pantry. I chose the blue to match the equal packets I am storing in one of them. The equal packets are blue :). The opening is large enough for me to put my hand inside and grab a pack or two. They don't stack on top of each very well without sliding, so I put them side by side. Side by side - PERFECT!! I love this set - Lock and Lock rocks!!!!
A bit disappointed
I bought these last month and after washing them in the sink, the silicone strip came loose on the bend on the top and it took me several minutes to get it back where I could lock the lid. It will not stay in place and I believe the other one will do the same thing. I'm going to have to be careful and make sure I wash these with the lid on or they're going to become worthless very quickly.
Live in the country and you get critters sometimes in your pantry. With these I have no worries of the freshness and safety of my flour and sugar. So nice to open the bin for easy access and measuring.
I use these to put dog biscuit and the other coffee. Everything stays fresh and dry. I may have to buy some more but I want a few in a smaller size
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 !
