For the purposes of this review, the Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers were provided for me at no charge. All opinions are true and my own.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m a kitchen junkie. If it’s something to cook, eat, cook with, eat on, etc. it’s for me! Needless to say, I JUMPED at the chance to review the Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers.
While I loved the look of these containers, I was still a little skeptical about them. Why? Like I said, I’m a kitchen junkie. I started attending home parties for another plastic food storage container company when I was in diapers. My mother had at least one of those parties a year. When I got married, my cousins threw one of those parties for me as a bridal shower. I think you get the idea. Needless to say, I have a TON of that other unnamed company’s products. Knowing the other company’s products like I do, I’m always comparing plastic food containers to them.
The Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers rate really high up on my list after testing them out for a couple of weeks. They are thick, heavy duty containers. The lock down tabs on all four sides help lock the lid to the container making it an air-tight seal. Even round containers have the four tabs on the lid. This is better than other containers because other lids don’t always stay closed if and when you drop them. With my MS related nerve damage, I tend to drop things easily, especially with my left hand. I’ve dropped LOTS of things over the years and had the lids pop off because of the pressure, angle, impact. Well, you know the drill! Thankfully, I haven’t dropped any of the Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers with anything in them. But I have NO DOUBTS that the lids will stay on and the contents in the container, not on the floor.
Is airtight a big deal for containers? Yes and no. While there is air trapped inside most containers, keeping excess air out is a bigger deal to me. I’ve been on a berry smoothie kick lately, so I stored blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries in the Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers a couple of weeks ago. The blueberries were still as fresh today as the day I put them in the containers. The blackberries didn’t hold up as long as I wanted, but fresh berries do have a limited shelf life. The strawberries held up remarkably well. I had nearly a gallon of strawberries in the large container. Every single time I opened the container to use the strawberries, I was bathed in the wonderful aroma of fresh strawberries.
Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers and lids stack inside and on top of one another extremely well with minimal wasted space. This is true for empty containers or those filled with food in the refrigerator. My drawer and fridge have never been so neat or organized before.
The last thing that really impressed me was the Lifetime Warranty available on Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers . The lifetime warranty has always been a big reason I preferred that other brand. Now that I know about the Limited Lifetime Warranty, I will be adding more Snapware to my collection. If there is a problem with Snapware, call World Collection, LLC Help Center at 1-800-999-3436 to discuss the issue. This is so much easier than trying to find a representative of the other brand and work on getting him/her to replace your defective product.
Do I have anything negative to say about the Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers ? Not really. It’s a great product! I did have a bit of a learning curve in locking the lids onto the containers. I learned that it’s better to lock down the longer sides of the containers first. Why? It may have just been me, but the sides tended to buckle a little if I locked the shorter sides on first.
Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers are just one of the many products available from Snapware. They offer a variety of products for storing food, crafts, and other items around the house. Snapware Airtight Plastic Food Containers would be a fabulous gift for a housewarming present, a wedding gift, and even those living in college dorms.
Yes, yes, yes. I do see more Snapware Food and Household Storage Containers in my home very soon!
