K20959 - Lock & Lock 5-piece Salad Bowl Storage Set
Why lock and lock???
One of my snaps broke today, I was so sad....On my big bowl.
So Many Uses
This set is advertised as a salad set - which it is great for, but I use for so many other things. Great quality and great price. I don't have any storage containers but Lock & Lock in my cabinet anymore.
Lock & Lock
I purchased these and a number of Lock and Lock. at lease one tab breaks off shortly after getting them. They serve their purpose and are great for individual salads as I use them for myself. Have had the same problem with other cannisters with the one tab breaking off .
What a Great Idea
This product is wonderful. I buy the bag of shredded lettuce mix from my local Warehouse Club. In the past once I open the bag it only lasts a few days. With this lock and lock set I am able to pre-make 4 salads to take to work each day. I pile in the lettuce, add 1/2 can of tuna and a boiled egg to each one. After filling the four salad bowls I store the rest of the lettuce in the large bowl. Everything stays fresh all week and the lettuce in the large bowl keeps much longer allowing me to make additional salads while at home. This has been such a timesaver for me and I would recommend it to anyone else who carries lunch to work.
Keeps Lettuce Fresh for Days
Bought this set for my mother for Christmas 2009 because she eats so much salad. She buys two bags at the stores and they fit in the big bowl. And it lasts forever! She uses the other bowls for everything else, but the big bowl is the star for keeping lettuce fresh.
I love this set. use it in the summertime for out doors. Use smaller bowls for left overs. We had leftover spagetti, and my husband said he would take it to work for lunch the next day. The said that lock and lock does not stain, so I used one of the smaller bowls and filled it to the top with spagetti and told my husband to unlock before he put it the microwave. He brought it home the next day and no stains. I was impressed.
not just for salads
This is my snack set. I fill the large bowl with potato chips or some similar snack and the little bowls for individual servings. Therefore they're opened and closed almost daily and have never had a problem with any of them. I like them a lot but then I like almost all lock and locks!
worst salad bowl
i purchased this a while back had them replace the salad bowl lid twice and still it does not latch all the way around i got tired of calling and complaining its a poor design wish they had the little tabs to latch on to, those work better than all these smooth edge latches they need to go back to the edges that have the tabs sticking out on them to latch to. safer and less chance of opening up and loosing whats in container i cant trust the large salad bowl at all because it wont latch all the way around sorry
I purchaed this product a number of months ago. While the small containers do live up to their presentation, the large bowl does not. I have problems with my hands and bought these because of how easily they are supposed to close. It seems the large round ones do not close easily at all. I also have another large round container that does the same as this one. The tabs are impossible to lock down. I just tried again to use this container and with great difficulty could only close 4 of the 5 tabs. My son even tried and could not do it.
I love this set but 2 things wrong (1) I used small bowl to heat sauce in microwave it stained bowl &
(2) the large cover tab won't stay closed 2 tabs pop open otherwise I love this bowl set great size
The small bowls are a perfect size for leftovers, however, DO NOT store leftover tomato based sauces in them. Brought some pulled pork to a friend's barbacue, and when she returned the bowl to me, I thought she hadn't washed it.
When I got home, I took it out and washed it immediately........low and behold, it is stained for life. I never had this problem with my other lock and lock containers, these are obviously not the same quality.
I know it says "Salad Bowl Storage", but does that mean we should only eat dinner on a "dinner plate"? Maybe these need to come with a warning not to use them for anything but salad.
Only One Drawback...
The large salad bowl doesn't keep leftover salad fresh for more than a day or two. The edges of my lettuce leaves turned brown quickly both times I have used it so far. Otherwise, the seals and sizes are perfect, and the flat lids of the bowls allow for storing of other fridge items on top of them. Love that!!!
