Mr. Lid 14-Piece Storage Set w/ Attached Lids
I loved the color and the containers are made very well. I love that you can't lose the lids
these were not the quality that I expected, they are just ok.
Happy Dance - Happy Dance
Love these with one exception, although the lid issue is solved forever my kids won't bring them back : ). I guess it's Mr. Lid for everyone for Christmas!
Absolutely love this item. So much that I bought two sets, gave them away and now I need another set for me! This is a wonderful item for moms with little ones. The different sizes are perfect for carrying snacks on the go.
Not quite seal tight
I love the attached lids, however you don't get as tight a seal as you do with the lock-n-locks. I personally wouldn't purchase for air tight purposes. Some leak and others don't.
I just received the purple set and love the color. But the best part is the attached lid which is always a pain to find in your cabinet. There was a plastic odor but I washed them in the dishwasher and the scent was gone. It was easy to put food in, did not tip over and the lid closed well.
perfect containers for someone always losing lids
Bought this as a present for my Mom - never could find lids that matched containers - or containers with a matching lid - long time problem. This solves it - great idea as the lids are attached - never mismatched lids again
What's Not to Love?!
Absolutely love this set. Someone in our household who will remain nameless (husband) never mastered the concept of putting lids with the container. We have an entire shelf in our kitchen devoted to food storage, so you wouldnt think it would be a big deal. I would constantly find lids scattered on the shelf with an avalanche of food containers ensuing. Yes, I have other containers like Lock n' Lock and Pyrex but these also serve a purpose. Now we never have to find a lid! I bought purple, absolutely love the color. I stack them all in my cupboard and love how neat it is now. I find myself reaching for these all the time over the other containers. These seem to snap tight with no problems. They come out fine out of our dishwasher and microwave too. If you are tired of searching for lids in your house, then Mr. Lid is for you!
For those of you who are not familiar with a snapping lid. If you put a warm/hot food in them, and then put them in the cold fridge....they will be hard to open up. It has something to do with it being hot and then cold.
All you have to do, is bring it back to room temperature, or a cooler temp. I have the same problem with a similar item.
What I do is run it under cool water, dry it off...PRESTO!!!!! It will open up!!!!
Love, Love, Love These
I ordered my first set from Walmart. They work great for me. They don't pop open or leak. My daughter even takes them to school. I'm ordering my second set from QVC because I want the extra pieces and the color red. Hate paying the shipping though.
I love the fact that I no longer search for covers!
no more hunting for a lid!
I thought this would be the answer to my daily "lid hunting"...perfect..the lid is attached. I ordered two sets, one for me and one for my daughter. I did like the colors, and the different sizes...so far so good. Now comes the HOWEVER....they don't seem to snap close securely and sometimes it is difficult to get them open. And then there is the problem of droppage. I dropped the small size (thank goodness) container with beef gravy and it went all over! Also when filling a container I have had to prop it against something in order to keep the bottom flat, the cover tends to tip it backwards.
The "theory" of this product is wonderful-it just doesn't work well in practicality. Turned out my daughter had the same complaints. We kept them and will use them and or give them away but we had been planning on replacing all our old storage containers with them. oh well, we will keep searching for the perfect food storage container. Mr Lid It....back to the drawing board.
