Rated 5 out of 5 by Lanat Great size
I too bought the larger size years ago on QVC and they are wonderful but sometimes just to large for everyday use. These seem to be a size now for just a couple to use ...thanks for bringing this smaller size for many of us ..

I bought 2 sets. One red and one blue. I will put hot stuff in the red ad cold in blue to make it easy for my kids.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shibamom Love these
I got these awhile back but just only recently used them. Went to a X-mas potluck party far from home. I used both of them and I was so happy 3 hours later to find my food hot. At first I thought they seemed small but was surprised to see how much they actually held. In one I put in the 3 boxes of Mac & Cheese. It held all of that with no problem which made me very happy since I wasn't sure it would all fit. In the other one I put 2.5 pounds of home made meat balls with 1 can beef broth and had no problems getting it all in. I know others have complained about leakage but it only talked about a locking lit not airtight. Either way I had no issues but I kept mine upright during the travel to the party. It was great to ave hot food when finally ready to eat without having to hope there was a plug near the table I totally recommed these. Plan on getting another set to share with my son. These have also proven useful at home when I make a meal that has to be cooked in layers. Sticking items in the oven to keep them warm can also dry food out but not with these.
Rated 5 out of 5 by avalon2 really great for pot lucks
we always pot-luck for family get together's and we have a 2 hour commute. I like that the lids lock and the foods do stay hot/cold as stated. Clean up is easy, there is no cooked on food residue like with my crock pot when left on during the get-together. My sisters-in-law use these frequently for bereavement meals and their dishes are always served hot
Rated 5 out of 5 by funbun Very nice
Years ago qvc sold similar items but much larger. I have watched through the years for them to come back but they didn't. I love them for gatherings where you need larger amounts like potato, macaroni and fruit salads that need to stay cold. They are magnificent and so happy I have them. These are smaller but perfect for things off the grill. Burgers, hotdogs, brats, etc. Great for home or tailgating to keep foods warm and not dried out. Will get much use out of these pretty green bowls.
Rated 3 out of 5 by dnean Not great for travel
While to food did indeed stay warm for hours I was really surprised to find that they do not have a tight seal. In addition they really don't hold as much for the size. I know they need extra bulk to provide the thermal qualities but the shape/size is akward for both storage and travel.
I made a dish to take to a potluck. The biggest one wasn't big enough for the full amount so I stuck some in a locknlock and then put both vessels in a bag for transport. I had to tilt this one slightly to get it into the bag and noticed it started to leak. It took an hour to get to my destination - the locknlock was still piping hot under it's seal. The outside of this one was more comfortable to the touch and inside it was just as hot. But I wouldn't buy this again.

Awesome awesome awesome they work great just put hot water in before you put hot food in to get the chill outa them first. They kept ice frozen for about 6 hrs also...
Rated 5 out of 5 by Earl S Super - high value and worth what we paid
Follow the instructions and you have amazing bowls to keep items hot/cold for very long periods of time. We visited our ill friend and brought universal medicine, hot chicken soup. The soup was indeed hot when arrived later in the day.
