Lock & Lock, A Glowing Recommendation!

I gotta tell ya folks, I am impressed! This may be the ultimate test for Lock & Lock food storage containers... Ritz (well, store brand:@) crackers stored over two months during a hot, humid Philadelphia summer. I opened a pack and it was good as new! I found this approx 9x6 inch, 1.7 quart sized container at Ross, it holds 3 sleeves of crackers. QVC and Amazon sell different sized sets too.
  If you're a camper/hiker/boater, take your lunch to work or are a home keeper that likes to keep things as fresh as you can for as long as you can... You can't go wrong with a product that works pretty much as advertised, and Lock & Lock does just that! My only suggestion is, don't microwave in them. I do seem to have a super powerful microwave, but I find that any fat in the soup does pit them a bit so I avoid it.

If you want a practical idea for a gift (any time of year), don't hesitate to give Lock & Lock! 
I gave Ma a set of graduated bowls a couple years ago and she's happy with them too.

I'm joining Tutorials, Tips and Tidbits with a response to a great comment that was left:
Sometimes it's frustrating to match the lids to the bowls... 
I'll tell you what I did in case it helps. I write a number on them with a Sharpie, both the bottom of the bowl and the lid. Just match them up. Not the prettiest, but these are my work bowls,
so that works for me:@)
Have a happy day!

  1. We pretty much don't put anything rubber or plastic in our microwave anymore... it's really probably not good for us to have plastics bubbling away beneath our food. That being said, we do use a lot of plastic storage containers. :-)

  2. I love Love & Lock and have quite a few pieces. They had a breakfast set on QVC and their bagel/roll container is great, as well as one for frozen waffles. I ordered some in glass a while back,too. xo

  11. I love Lock and Locks too. Another thing they are good for is letterboxing (and probably geocaching too). We love the hobby and I'm always glad to see a letterbox that uses a Lock and Lock. It doesn't matter how long they've been out in the elements, they are always dry as a bone inside.

  13. I'll have to check these out -- love the idea of keeping crackers in them. :)

  14. I'm all about saving and storing food these days. We got a food saver back in May, and I've been a storing maniac. Since you can't really vacuum seal crackers without them crumbling (I assume), this would be a great solution.

    LOVE the tip about writing a matching number on the top and bottom.
    You give some of the best tips!

  15. I LOVE Lock and Lock! I've gotten all of mine on QVC...actually, a nice set just arrived! There are just two of us so I got a new set perfect for leftovers. I have tons of them in all different sizes. They are great for storing Christmas cookies!
