lids close securely, built very well overall. kids love them. so do mom & dad.
This is the second batch of these that I've ordered from here, and I love them. They're great for storage, for lunches/snacks, or even to use as little bowls. They are a little expensive, but they're solidly built and will last a very long time. Plus, when they get stuffed in backpacks or dropped, they're indestructible! Love em!
They're stainless, easy for my daughter to open and I was excited that they finally come in brighter colors!
this product is working out well for us
I have 2 sets and LOVE them! I wash the lids and bottoms in the D/W on the top rack with no problem. It's been well over a year of washing in the D/W too and the lids are still tight as ever. BUY THESE NOW!Perfect sizes!
I bought these for my neice last year and they are used every weekday for snacks in school. Her parents love them and they cut down on waste. So, with my nephew going to school next year I decided to pick up some more. They're excellent, the perfect size to fit a variety of snacks and fruit or crackers don't get crushed in lunch bags! What a great idea and what a wonderful way to go green.
These are ideal containers for packing a lunch. They are leak-proof and come in a good range of sizes. They are easy to clean because they are stainless steel!
I bought one set as a baby shower gift and one set for my kids' lunches. I need one or two more sets for my home. The mamma to be loved the nesting set. It will go from diaper bag to lunch box.
These nest perfectly. They do not leak. They are (relatively) easy to open and close. They are cute and lightweight. Overall - they are awesome! Very cost effective and good for lunch boxes.
These are perfect for my kid's lunch bags (and my own). Very durable, clean up easily, etc. Love them! Good sizes, too.
I haven't used these a whole lot yet. My six year old does need a little help to open these. I have put yogurt in the smallest one and it didn't leak.
My daughter was delighted with this. It's cute and the small one is the right size for taking hummus for lunch. I have one small quibble - the lids are a little stiff and they are 1960s kitchen colors. However, as I said, that is a minor thing. Overall a great product.
These don't leak, they come in useful sizes, are good quality, and are attractive. Only drawback is that my primary school kids need help from an adult to open them, so I wouldn't say they are the best for little kid lunches.
I really like these containers and the fact you have different sizes to work with. It can be a little tricky to get the lids closed tightly or to open. I'm not sure if young children could open easily on their own.
These container are sturdy, attractive, and are completely leak-proof. They are also easy to clean!
These are great. The lids fit tight. They are a little hard for the kids to open, but I gave them a few pointers and they can do it. The sizes are great, and I'm going to order two more sets.
I bought these to take my lunch to work. I can put these in the toaster to warm up my food, and it is so much better than warming my food up in the microwave, which makes everything soggy.
I love my Kids Konserve Stainless Steel Food Containers. They're the perfect sizes for my kindergartener's lunch and snacks. It also fits perfectly in her standard size lunch bag. The covers fit nice and tight too. I am definitely happy with them.
i love these containers. i use them for lunches, snacks, etc. i love that they come in different sizes and that the tops fit securely.
These containers truly do not leak, which is the feature I was looking for. But do not put the lids in the dishwasher: they don't fit the same afterwards. The 3 sizes make them very versatile. The kids have not reported any bad metallic taste, nor any problem opening them. Very satisfied.
I got 2 sets of these at the end of summer, for use in my son's lunchbox. yes, pricey, but so it goes. They should also market these for camping. We nested them for an end of season trip, & used the 2 large bowls for eating from. Opens & closes very securely. My 10 year old has no problem but a very young child might not have the hand strength to open or close. I'm glad I got 2 sets. Makes it easier when I unpack the lunchbox late & need to make lunch in the a.m. Also sometimes you need more, or different sizes. These are of a good quality metal & they & the lids dishwasher fine. I use them too, as needed. I find them very versatile & exactly as wanted. Only issue is you must cut your sandwiches carefully to fit them in. Fine if you use a round loaf like artisan sourdough, trickier if you use traditional rectangular slices. I know there are rectangular metal boxes, but I saw the one with the pop up lid in a store & worried that the plastic would be weak at the fold point. So I just trim the corners, shove the sandwich in this, & we're good to go.
Love these. Lids are easy to get on and off. Beautiful stainless. Perfect sizes. Will probably last forever. High quality. You won't be disappointed.
These are great--perfect size for school lunch. My 5 year old can't open them by herself if I close them all the way though. This is fine for crackers or dry food, but she has to ask for help to get it open when I pack yogurt. It doesn't leak, which is great!
I use the medium size for packing fruit like cantaloupe and strawberries for my son's lunch. He's in first grade and has no problem opening the container by himself. I use the smallest container for packing hummus. They're working out great! Highly recommend!
This a great product! My husband uses them for sides like carrots and fruit for his lunch, and my five year old daughter can easily open them when I send them in her lunch. I had to get a second set because each of them liked them so much. We also plan to use them to bring snacks on hikes, etc.
I carry these in my messenger bag on my bike to work. They are great! I never worry about them leaking in my "purse" because they seal perfectly. I use one for my morning fruit, one for my snacktime veggie, and the large one for my main lunch. At the end of the day they nestle together and go back into my bag! No more plastic baggies, and my food is well protected in these high quality containers. My teenage son teases me because they say "Kids Konserve" on the lids, but I don't mind- and the lid colors are great.
These bowl are great for kids lunch boxes. The tops are easy to manipulate and they don't leak. The bowls also "nest" so storage is easy. The kids love them.
Love them, worth it!
I love these containers! They are the first ones I grab in my cupboard. Perfect for snacks and packing our lunches.
This is one of the best products EVER! So happy I purchased them. I travel for a living and these are perfect of a 3 day trip AND the stuff stays ice cold!! SWEET! Buy this product you will love it!
We are thrilled with these...work great on picnics, car trips, even for leftovers in the fridge. They pack easily in lunchbags, coolers, even in backpacks.
I'm so happy to finally be able to get rid of that gladware plastic! The varied sizes make them much more useful and they clean easily. The only drawback I've found is that kids have difficulty securing the lids tightly. If there is leftover applesauce or yogurt, it ends up all over the lunchbox. This is user error more than design flaw though.
I purchased the bowls for my kids lunch bags. They often take yogurt or fruit, so we needed good bowls for that. I had tried a few different types of small glass bowls with lids, but the food always leaked out in the kids lunch bag. I got one order even though we need more then that so we could test them out first. They are very expensive. I wanted to know we liked them before buying 3 or 4 sets. We use them daily, and not a single leak. The lids come off very easy, although my younger kids (7 and 10) sometimes have to get help to open them. I will be ordering more so each kid as a set:)
I love these! The nesting part is perfect for that annoying aspect of reusable containers, where they just start taking up space, and can no longer be stored. They're fun and cute, and the leak proof part works great! I had yogurt in one, and nary a spill, even though my lunch bag got knocked about when it fell off of my seat in my car. The lids fit very nicely on the containers, as well. I'm hoping they make a larger set!
I have had the opportunity to use these nesting storage containers for about one month. Love the fact that the lids seal tightly and nothing is spilled in my lunch bag. At the end of the meal, I simply place them one inside the other to transport them home again. A friend of mine, who is also trying to eliminate plastic storage bags, purchased a set for herself after she saw me carry them for lunch. The three sizes are perfect for a good portion lunch. Keeps cold items cold for a long period of time.
These containers are great. The 2 smallest sizes are perfect for toting snacks for my daughter - little crackers, pb and j cut into quarters. And I really like the large size for taking my yogurt and fruit to work for breakfast and for storing dinner leftovers (1 portion) in the fridge. Easy to wash, very durable, healthier than plastic and lighter-weight than glass (plus unbreakable!).
These containers have been exactly what we needed. I bought them because my daughter outgrew her Laptop lunchbox and I thought individual containers would hold more food. I was right and these have not disappointed. They're the perfect size for a sandwich (large container), something like apple slices in the middle one, and even the small container is a generous size. They don't leak, either, which is great. I wish they were more affordable, but hey, they do the trick.
We've been looking a long time for stainless steel containers to replace the heavy-duty glass ones we'd been using for our kids' lunchboxes. We wanted something that was leak-proof, felt substantial and could stand daily use. We found it in the Kids Konserve Stainless Steel Food Container! We ordered two sets, and placed another order for another two sets within a month of using them. Other parents have come up and asked us about the food containers. We like the stylish look of the lids, which fit tightly and securely. We put the containers in the dishwashing machine, and hand wash the lids since they're plastic.
i feel guilty taking my leftovers home from a restaurant in foam clamshell containers. now i nest all three containers, throw them in my purse, and never have to ask for a doggy bag. the lids fit very well and the stainless containers are seamless and leakproof. great product.
I love these stainless steel containers - much better thank plastic but still lightweight. The only issue is that the lids are a little hard to put/take off so I worry about sending to school with kids without any adult help. HOWEVER, the benefit is that they are leakproof so it's just a tradeoff.
I've been looking for a leak proof container for our lunches and these are perfect. They ended up being larger than I expected but, the smallest one is great for dressing dip, salsa, and more. Since it is a tight seal, it's a bit hard to close them correctly for kids. My daughter already came home with leftover spilled ranch dressing in her lunchbox :( I just told her to empty her container before she puts it in her box. It should be easy for adults.
Excellent product, great quality. It is very convenient to store foods at home or on the go. It is a better alternative to plastic. It stores easily as it takes less space in cabinets.
Love these containers! I bought one set and plan to buy another, I know these will get a lot of use. I took salsa in one to the beach, and not a drop spilled out. Easy to clean, easy to use.
We are really getting a lot of use of the Kids Konserve SS food container's. I bought 2 sets. I like the way that they store by sitting inside of each other, taking up less space in our cabinets and I feel better not storing my daughters food in plastic containers
These are perfect for my son. I don't have to send him to school with toxic plastic but the lids seal tight, unlike other stainless steel containers.
I have to echo the other reviewers' sentiments about the lids. Despite the name, my partner and I have used these containers more than my stepdaughter--you need strong hands to close the lid tightly so that it really seals. Stepdaughter is 10 now, but when she was younger she had more trouble closing them (tightly) than opening them. Otherwise: the quality of the steel is excellent, and the containers are easy to care for and durable. Thanks!
The containers are good but expensive. I purchased a second set so I must feel they are worth the money. They are a good size for school lunches. I use them daily for school lunches (perfect size for lunches) and even my kindergartner can open them. So far they have been spill proof..
These go into our Built Market tote when we eat out or pick up Take Out. They are just right for that salsa or sweet & sour sauce or that bit of the appetizer you want to take home. Teamed with the Innate MC2 containers we have a full 'Take Out' kit.
I purchased these as an alternative to plastic baggies and bowls for my sons school lunch. So far, so good. He is 5 and has no trouble removing the lids or putting the lids back on. We haven't put anything liquidy in the bowls so can't attest to leaking. I only hand wash them, so they are looking good as far as quality. Great for chips or anything else that may get squished. They look little but seem to hold a lot! He loves them. I am only giving them a 4 star verse 5 star rating because they are made in China. I try to stay away from products made there due to poor quality over the years (tainted dog food, baby formula, lead paint on childrens toys, etc).
I like the fact that it's stainless steel even though it cannot be use in the microwave. Very nice design. The nesting feature minimize storage space. The lids are tighly sealed. They are smaller than I expected from seeing the pictures on the web. The lid says it's for kids (or the kids product) and maybe that's why it's kind of small for adults. It's perfect for a small amount of leftover. Overall I'm satisfied with the product.
Containers are great and worked well in the beginning--sturdy, lightweight, easy to clean, closed securely. However, after several months of use, all of the lids have cracks and can no longer be used for anything with liquids. I imagine they cracked due to the prying needed to get the lids off. Would buy again if lids were more durable.
I really like these containers, but I think they are better for keeping cold food cold than, hot food hot. Also, they are supposed to be handwashed, that's a bit of a drawback. They are very sturdy though and I think they will last long making them a great investment.
Nearly impossible for an adult to close let alone a small child. I never use them because even if I get them closed my daughter can't reseal them and that makes for a mess. She sometimes has a hard time opening too because there is no tab. Very Expensive for something that gets no use.
