The concept of measured containers for packed lunches and food storage is a good one. These container have secure cold packs and are bright and aesthetically pleasing and I was excited to try them. HOWEVER, I DO NO RECOMMEND THEM as the lids do not fit tightly and they leak like a sieve. The lids are hard to put on. I was told they were "leak resistant" (lol) which means that if they are not completely upright, the liquid contents will not pour out all at once but only drip out a drop at a time, I guess. I put lentil soup in it and it soaked all the other items in my lunch. I could see something like this for dry hard veggies like carrots, cauliflower, and snap peas, but don't put in anything like pineapple or canned mandarin oranges or you will have a mess. That being said they did allow me to return for a full refund and sent a shipping label to do it. The customer service rep did tell me that the "kid" containers ARE leakproof and are the same thing except brighter colors, so I think I am going to try them. They appear to include the ice packs also.
I don't recommend these. After about 3mo of use the marks rubbed off of the containers, the lids do not fit well and they aren't high quality leftover containers like you would get from tupperware or rubbermaid. They leak and are hard to close. If you like higher quality leftover containers, you'll be disappointed.
Coincidentally these products are available through by book club this month & I wouldn't have given them consideration before, but after seeing your video and quick demo I'm ordering both!!! Thanks for this timely piece!
