I have been using plastic recently to store in, however after reading warnings about PBA's I decided I would look for a glass alternative when I came upon this item. I thought I was only going to get one set but after ordering I found it was two. I thought the price was good for the one set but it was outstanding for both sets. They are truly a dishwasher safe, the lids did not warp.

I purchased this set for two reasons-I wanted cheap glass storage containers for food and I'm getting what I paid for. The lids are constructed of a hard plastic and might be hard for some people with dexterity problems to open-the lids are not pliable whatsoever. They will work for nicely for me for awhile.

needed to get rid of plastic and the 5various sizes x2 gives plenty of options. The lids are also easy to use esp with my arthritis.

I like this item a lot and will probably buy another set as we use a lot of pasta and storing remaining pasta in the boxes they come in is less than ideal for a household with many children (can't tell you how many times I've swept nearly a whole box of penne or spaghetti off the kitchen floor). Of course they are glass, but I've already dropped one, and it did fine (although our floor is linoleum, nothing hard like tile). They are on the heavier side than what I expected and the glass has more of a ruddy look to it- its a lot like the stuff my friend has from Europe- they're not this pristine super clear glass that looks brand new. That having been said, I've actually grown to appreciate that about this set as it lends kind of an old-world feel to it. All my pieces arrived undamaged and the set was delivered in about two days. A note about the spice shakers- I'm using them because I really love the way they look. However, they're not made quite as well as the canisters and the metal tops for them are a bit on the cheap side. I'm using them for my lesser reached for spices because they're just not as quick to use as the plastic pop-tops. But overall I'm very happy with this purchase.

This little gadget is pretty much perfect. It's got a nice strong magnet to stick to your fridge, so it's always convenient. It does exactly what it's supposed to do. I use this re-sealer on bags of frozen veggies, unfinished bags of cereal (especially during the humid summer months), and candy packages (so I don't eat the whole thing). It prevents freezer burn, stale-ness and wasting lots of plastic zipper bags. Pop some rechargeable batteries in there, and you've got a convenient way to decrease your environmental impact AND save money from wasted food! I've already given a bunch away as gifts (stocking stuffers), and I'm getting more for myself so I have them in reserve in case they take the product off the market. But I'm still using the original one I bought ages ago!

I had been looking for something to store my pasta and rice in that could also remain on the counter. I thought I had finally found something stylish and functional in this set. Once received, I just couldn't like it, and I tried. To start, the tops are cheap. When you tap them they sound like plastic, not stainless steel as advertised. There were also little scratches on them, not a good sign for it's long term use. The glass itself is very splotchy. There were air bubbles throughout it, and not in the purposeful way. The seam where the glass was joined is quite obvious as a thick vertical line down the canister. I really wanted to love this set since I had been looking for a while and these seemed like a great deal. But to keep them, I would have had to hide them away in my pantry and position that ugly seam to the wall. If, like some other reviewers, you're just storing crafts or keeping them in a closet then these may work for you. However, if you were looking for a canister set to display in your kitchen then I would keep looking. Luckily, overstock is great with returns.

For the most part I really like these dishes. They microwave well, seal up really tight, and match my kitchen beautifully. My only complaint is that after having them 2 weeks or so, one of my lids developed a crack in the plastic along the crease. It's still fine to store stuff in the fridge with, but I wouldn't put anything liquid in it if I were to, say, take it in my lunch. The others are all fine tho, and I have had these for months now. Probably just a fluke. I would buy them again.

I received this set in good condition. I love them, and feel better storing food in glass rather than plastic.
