BPA-free PET, polypropylene lids and sanoprene gaskets.

Billions of pre-packaged, single-serve snacks, disposable plastic baggies and containers for taking home restaurant leftovers are consumed each year. They generate millions of tons of unnecessary waste, not to mention the natural resources required to make them in the first place. These conveniences cost consumers billions of dollars each year. By using reusable food containers, you can drastically reduce your need for use-and-toss plastic baggies, wraps and aluminum foil. Plus, you can save money and eat healthier by creating your own single servings instead of buying pre-packaged ones.

  1. great stuff review by Rhonda P on 7/12/2016
    Your Product Rating

    So versatile. Really is waterproof. On a trip across country

    we used these in our cooler. They were usually floating or submerged. Whatever was inside was bone dry!

    Great in the fridge, or pantry. Love them......BPA free!

  2. Good, solid container review by Susan S on 7/12/2016

    I got this for my kindergartener to take dribbely food with him. So far I have no complains at all - using it seldom though.

  3. Great Lunch Containers! review by Denise F on 7/12/2016
    Your Product Rating

    I use these containers to make and freeze lunches for work ahead of time. They freeze well, and are indeed leak-proof. I found that they are easy to clean and did not stain, even with tomato products, but I did not heat these in the microwave. I ordered multiples of different sizes, and they are working perfectly for me. Convenient to do 12 assembly-line meals. Easy to stack and store.

  4. Space saving, non-leaking, safe and easy review by Helena A on 7/12/2016
    Your Product Rating

    I've gone through many many types of glass and plastic containers and these are my favorites by far. This is the third time in 2 years that I'm buying more of these from reuse-it.


    1. Dishwasher safe - comes out without funky food / plastic odor or coloring

    2. They nest within each other. I live in a small city apartment with minimal storage space. They stack nicely within each other so I can store about 15 of these in different sizes all in one drawer.

    3. They do not leak. I can take tomato soup to work and not spill a drop in my backpack.

    4. Microwave safe

    5. Lightweight, safe plastic that don't break even if you drop them. This is really nice for carrying food in backpacks and for commuters, and kid-friendly.

    6. Really useful portion sizes

    7. Flat tops make it easy to stack them in the fridge or lunch box

    8. I love being able to buy the individual sizes that I need from reuseit. I've seen a box of snapware from costco but they're all different sizes and shapes, which makes it hard to nest them all in a small drawer

    9. Long lasting. Each container gets used for storing food in the fridge, being carried to school or work, dropped on the floor, microwaved, and washed in the dishwasher several times a week. My toddler like to play with them - towers, water play, stacking, etc. I find that they last way over a year with hard use before a snap breaks off or the plastic starts looking a little worn. That's great value!

    10. Inexpensive - if one gets lost or if leftovers get so gross that it's turned into a bio-hazard, I can throw it away without crying about replacement costs

    11. Color coded lids make it easy to find the right lid for the right shape.


    1. They're not very good for freezer use - the snaps on the size become brittle and can break off

    2. These won't last as long as glass containers. But they are really durable.

    3. Sometimes one of the sides doesn't snap down, but just rotate the lid or tuck in the gasket tightly and that should fix it.

  5. Super Product review by Dawn B on 7/12/2016

    These containers are great replacements for harmful plastics. The lids snap on & off easily, so they're good for kids or adults.

  6. So far, so great! review by Gary R. B on 7/12/2016
    Your Product Rating

    American made excellent quality containers. Had vacuum type containers before, but they would lose vacuum after so many hours, and the lids would eventually crack. These are much better and not made in China!

  7. Snapware Mods are GREAT! review by Edward R on 7/12/2016

    I love not having to worry about them leaking and also they are unstained upon removal from the dishwasher. Perfect. What more could one want?

  8. No more styrofoam!! review by Anna S on 7/12/2016
    Your Product Rating

    I bought these for one purpose. I take them with me when we eat out because I can't stand bringing all those styrofoam containers home with me when we have leftovers. What a bunch of waste! They don't leak and they are compact so they are PERFECT to stash in a purse or a backpack. I just wish I'd thought of this years ago! Thanks to these handy containers, styrofoam is BANNED from my house! (IF I get styrofoam peanuts, I just save them and take them to a UPS or Fed-x store--they are happy to get them and reuse them.)

  9. Will be buying more! review by Margaret D on 7/12/2016

    I bought several sizes. We have been using them to store leftovers. They seal tight and do not leak. They are easy to clean and do not stain.

    These containers are easy for my five year old to open and close and they stay tightly closed while in the lunch bag.

  11. YAY!!! I want more!! review by Karin B on 7/12/2016
    Your Product Rating

    I love these!! I bought the smallest size, about a dozen of them, to freeze oatmeal and soups to bring to work. The small ones are perfect for portion control. They do not leak, even when transporting non-frozen food. And they don't stain. I am buying the next size up for entree size meals. Plus, they are made in the USA, which I appreciate when buying containers I store food in.

  12. Finally. review by Olivia M on 7/12/2016
    Your Product Rating

    I'm so glad I found these. The snap-down flaps on the sides of the lid make these very easy to close securely, compared to other brands of airtight plasticware where I'm never sure if it's actually closed all the way. The gasket keeps these containers totally airtight; they don't leak at all, so they're great for bringing salads or wet-ish foods to lunch at school or work. The plastic does not infiltrate the flavor of the food inside, and they seem well made and durable. I am quite pleased with this product.

  13. A couple of suggestions for frequent users review by Kebra on 7/11/2016
    Your Product Rating

    I have and use all but the taller container daily.
    I would definitely recommend them. Many of the pro's and cons have already been listed and I wholeheartedly agree!

    I have one suggestion. Every once in a while remove the rubber band used for sealing and wash it thoroughly. The sides of that band that are covered eventually get debris caught and become a place that mold will grow. (Not pretty!)

    Also, if you can possibly let the containers removed from the freezer sit and warm up a bit before opening, they will last longer. Straight from the freezer, the plastic is pretty brittle and the tabs can snap off.

    My opinion is the pros far outweigh the cons. Overall these containers are fantastic!

  14. lunchbox champs review by Stasi Y on 7/11/2016
    Your Product Rating

    When my kids started preschool and Kindergarten, they had to take a lunch and two snacks to school, every day. I was very excited about the bento system, only to find that my kids could not re-close the cute containers. Their lunch boxes would come home with open containers and a gooey mess of leftovers.

    But even my 3yo can open (and re-close!) the snapware. I like being able to see what is inside the containers, and love the fact that they can operate them properly by themselves.

    I first found Snapware in a large set at Costco, then bought more of the small square containers here at I wish somebody sold a set of the small squares, the very small rounds (great for yogurt & applesauce parfaits), and a few of the small rectangles (good for 2 halves of a sandwich).

    My son lost a few containers last year, but this year I found that the not-so-smooth edging on the lids is a great place to write our last name with a Sharpie, and the ink stays on for quite a few washings.

  15. Great products review by John B on 7/11/2016

    Great products but this item turned out to be larger than I wanted.

  16. Not suitable for long term freezing review by T.A. W on 7/11/2016
    Your Product Rating

    I purchased two 26 oz and two 16 oz containers. I like the snap lid and they work great in the microwave. Plus, the 16 oz containers are the perfect size for taking salads or leftovers to work.

    However, I made some beans on New Years day and froze some of the leftovers. Yesterday (1/7/12), I noticed that a full layer of ice crystals had formed. I didn't fill the container completely, but I was disappointed to learn that there was so much air leakage. In the future, I will only use the containers for very short term refrigerator storage.

    To those complaining about the size: The dimensions are written on the website. You can't blame for YOUR oversite.

  17. A tall quart container would be great review by Alisa C on 7/11/2016
    Your Product Rating

    I think this container comes in quart-size that's short and rectangular. A tall quart container would be great.

  18. Perfect for lunch review by Alisa C on 7/11/2016
    Your Product Rating

    The best thing about these containers is that both sizes are great for lunch. They can be finicky to snap down at times, but nothing a 90 degree turn can't fix. I made the mistake of reheating some chicken legs in the microwave for 15-30s too long. The plastic became discolored in the corner where the stub and gravy met. It would be nice if these also came in quart size.

  19. 6 Months to not lean-proof review by Healthy Eater on 7/11/2016
    Your Product Rating

    For the first six months, the Snapware container was a solid solution to the challenge of bringing salads and vegetable dishes to work for lunch. Some olive oil or sauce could go on during prep time, and everything would stay nicely sealed throughout the day until it was time to eat.

    The rubber gasket worked well, and the container really offered a convenient way to bring healthful food to work while dealing with the moisture that comes with veggies or sauces.

    Today the gasket stopped working, and it made quite the mess, olive oil everywhere. I've always washed the container by hand (no exposure to high-heat drying) and take top care of it because the container's been so important to my ability to easily transport food.

    Now one corner leaks consistently so the container can no longer serve its main function as a lunch box. Back to shopping around for a truly leak-proof option. This one started so beautifully but just isn't the solution.
