this tupperware is aesthetically pleasing, but really poor quality, especially for how much it costs. The lids are really a pain to get off, especially if you have had it in the freezer. One of mine has already broken - we had stored berries in it in the freezer, and it shattered when my huband tried to get the lid off!! Do yourself a favor and just get the cheap ones you can buy at the grocery store. They are less likely to break, the lids work better, and you won't feel cheated.
