Sistema 5-piece Split Container Storage Set
One time through the dishwasher, on the top shelf, caused the warping of two of the base units. They are still usable, but, it was difficult to get the lid on tight so it didn't leak.
I was skeptical because of some of the reviews, but figured I'd take a chance. I've been using these for a couple of weeks now and think they are just as good as lock n lock. The price was good and the easy pay was even better. I might go back for another set or two for gifts and another set for myself!
VERY NICE SET!!
As far as I'm concerned, this set is right up there with Lock n' Lock; maybe even a bit better because you only have two tabs to snap open. They keep veggies and fruits beautifully, and the double ones are great transports to picnics, etc.
I bought 2 sets based on my experience with the Sistema cups & bowls which I loved. These are NOT microwavable and they leak something awful. I put ice cubes in it and walked about 100 yards and they leaked melted water all over - you can only use these maybe to hold non food items or food items like snacks that don't have liquid... sent one set back and threw the other set in the garbage... waste of time and MONEY.
Great for storage!
I like the fact that some are small; perfect to store two separate items and then take them to work or for picnicking. Been looking for smaller containers and these fill the bill! Thanks QVC!
This is my second set - I love the sizes and the divider containers. Also picked up the set of four mugs - these are great!
Cracked Upon First Use
Well, as much as I love Chef Tony and all his products, I have to say that I was extremely disappointed in this Sistema product. I placed leftovers in the large split container, brought it to room temperature and then placed in the refrigerator. The next evening when I removed the container from the fridge, I noticed that the top corner edge of the container bottom had cracked, chipped and had a small hole in it.
So, I would suggest that you NOT purchase these Sistema storage containers. Stick to your Lock & Lock storage containers for storing leftovers.
LOVE This Set - Placing a Second Order
This set has so many uses. My first set has proven invaluable for my household uses. Ordering a second set. No problems for me as reported in some of the reviews.
I purchased this item the same thing with the other I got from Sistema I just love it. I stop buying Lock and Lock long before this product was introduced here at QVC.Why? They did stained so much and can't get rid of it like it did stuck so well inside the container that became brittle to clean and the closure broke on constant used. Thick plastic but very poor quality. I did purchased the set of Sistema mugs first and in love so much and did bought the bowls also and it was such a quality not only the looks but the useful of it. I did gave some of the mugs to my co workers for a gift and they asked where I bought it 'cause they also do love it. I always used the bowl to cook and heat up food. The only problem is I wish you will make more other sizes without divider and somewhere between 2 up to 6 cups on square and 2 to five if not more in inches deep. This product is one of the best quality QVC can have and more colors if possible. My favorite color is the light blue and orange and yellow and pink will be a good color addition. Please, please, please make more other sets but exclude the very small size. Thank you QVC for finding this product and I will be looking and waiting for more of these brand item. As for lock and lock I can just buy the same kind at Wall Mart cheaper per set. Sistema you ROCK. And David I never missed your show every Sunday.
I love these,used them to put super bowl stuff in,these are great except do not microwave,they melt
Great Storage Set
I love the Sistema Split Container Storage Set. Sometimes I cook up to 4 different vegetables with my meals. This set allows me to keep my vegetables together in one or two pieces depending on the amount of left overs I have instead of looking for 4 containers. I had no problems with the tabs or any of the other problems previously mentioned by others.
I LOVE THESE FOR STORAGE!!!
I bought these specifically to organize my messy junk drawer.
Y'know, batteries,pens,glue,scizzors,crayons, etc. I LOVE the clear lids so I can see the contents when I open the drawer. The lid snaps right off to gain access & snaps right back to seal.
I wish Sistema would make more larger sizes that are low enough to organize drawers.
I haven't used it to store food so I can't comment on that but for organizing??
