Lock&Lock Food-Storage Solutions

Save Food, Save Money, Save Space

A useful addition to any busy household, Lock&Lock's Classic plastic food-storage containers come in handy for storing fresh and frozen foods--from healthy snacks like cut-up fruits and vegetables to leftovers or dinners for the week. They also work well for keeping pasta, rice, flour, sugar, crackers, cookies, and other cupboard or pantry items fresh for longer, securely stored, and neatly organized. Even more, the versatile storage containers can be used to transport lunches to and from work or school--or even for storing smaller kitchen, office, or craft items.

Lock&Lock's full line of Classic food-storage containers offers a wide range of shapes and sizes--each with a securely locking lid for airtight storage and peace of mind. Furthermore, the clear body of the containers makes identifying contents easy--no labels required.

Lock&Lock Classic
Ideal for wet or dry food storage.
Airtight Containers with Four-Sided Locking System
Lock&Lock Classic

Lock&Lock's Classic food-storage containers feature an innovative four-sided locking system for an airtight seal and watertight storage so food stays fresh longer and there's no messy leaks or spills to worry about. The four sides of the locking system promote an airtight seal due to equal pressure to all four sides, along with the hollow-center silicon sealing ring that makes it possible to lock tightly (the silicone sealing ring can be removed for cleaning if necessary).

Made of high-quality BPA-free plastic, Lock&Lock's Classic food-storage containers not only offer an airtight and watertight seal, but they're also durably built for unbreakable, long-lasting use and hygienic, food-safe storage.

The containers can withstand temperatures ranging from -4 degrees F to 210 degrees F, making them suitable for use in the freezer, microwave* (reheating only), and dishwasher (top-rack). The base and lid should NOT be used in the oven, under browning elements, or on the stove top. Another thoughtful design detail includes the fact that the containers can be nested together, and with the lid in place, they can be stacked one on top of the other--particularly useful where space is limited.

*Unlock all four latches and loosen lid before use in microwave.

Detailed Features

Patented Blocking Hole System
Lock&Lock Classic
Consistent flow of resin--does not produce a weld line along the hinge.
Inconsistent flow of resin--produces a weld line over time.

Lock&Lock Classic lids feature four side flaps or "wings" that are hinged and slightly flared at the end for an easy grip when opening. More importantly, they come with holes (rectangular-shaped openings) that line up with matching knobs on the base of the containers, making it easy to latch the lid to the base, locking it into place. This patented blocking hole system maintains the integrity of the lid and helps promote an easy, tightly locked container.

  • Lid's 4 wings come with holes that line up with base
  • Weld line does not form around the hinge piece
  • Hinge is designed to be short in length to prevent stiffness when opening and closing
Lock&Lock Classic
Blue hollow-center silicon band in the lid helps create an airtight, leak-proof seal.
Special Silicone

In addition to its blocking hole system, the Classic food-storage containers feature a blue hollow-center silicon ring in the lid that helps create an airtight, leak-proof seal. Generic silicon with a solid center doesn't compress as well and doesn't have the same restorative power as hollow-center silicon, which means an inferior seal. Lock&Lock's hollow-center silicon seal delivers superior compression and restoration power that helps ensure an airtight seal.

Permeability

When testing the freshness of foods, one of the most important factors is the permeability of the container. In comparison to other brands, the permeability of Lock&Lock products showed to be drastically better.

Lock&Lock Classic
Strawberries stored at room temperature for 5 days.

The freshness test is determined throughout the world by how much moisture permeates various containers. Test results show Lock&Lock airtight containers allow in 3,000 - 6,000 times less moisture than other containers, making them far more airtight.

Lock&Lock Classic
Airtight seal means no messy spills or leaks to worry about.
Excellent Airtight Seal

Lock&Lock airtight containers passed the leakage test. Their four-sided locking system makes an airtight seal possible due to equal pressure on all four sides and the hollow-center silicone sealing ring.

Lock&Lock Classic
Passed the KEMTI bending test.
Durable Design

Lock&Lock airtight containers have also passed the KEMTI bending test. The container and the wing were fixed to the bending test machine and bent 3,000,000 times 80 degrees left to right. If the container were to be used 10 times a day, it could be used for 821 years (semi-permanently).

Lock&Lock Classic
Hygienic and food-safe.
Healthy Living

Lock&Lock Classic food-storage containers have passed the strict hygiene and safety tests of the U.S. FDA and German SGS. Made of high-quality BPA-free plastic, the durable and heat-resistance containers are food-safe and health-friendly.

Lock&Lock Classic
Nest and stack for space-saving storage.
Space-Saving Design

When not in use, the cleverly designed food-storage containers nest together, both lids and bases, for compact storage in a drawer or on a shelf.

The containers also offer a stacking system for maximum space efficiency. The flat lids make it easy to stack one container on top of another--a slight edge helps to keep stacked items in securely place, whether in the freezer, refrigerator, or cupboard.

Whether just one or building a collection of several, Lock&Lock's Classic airtight containers offer a smart solution for food storage.

Very easy to clean up.

The variety of sizes is nice also because they are not so small or large that you rarely user them.

Love them and wish I bought them sooner.

I bought two different sets of these containers and am posting the same review to each.

I had a set of these that I received years and years ago for signing up for a free checking account at my local bank. That set was great-- held up to dishwasher/microwave/college student use and nested well (all containers were different sizes.)

Over the years and several moves, I lost almost all of these containers (or their lids), so I recently decided to replace them.

They're still the same great containers (now BPA free!), but I noticed that the containers that are the same size (share the same sized lid) don't nest. They just... stack. Not a HORRIBLE big deal, as you can create a sort of nesting system with the various sizes, but it would be more convenient to be able to nest same sized containers together.

Regardless, I'm still glad I pitched the large majority of the patchwork collection of food storage containers I had amassed over the years and replaced them with these. I no longer need to worry about surprise wet papers/purses/lunchboxes or melting containers in the microwave. I just wish that these were more nest-friendly, to save on storage space and save the hassle of sorting through a stack of 3/4 containers to get the right sized one out or put it away.

I've put in three orders for Lock&Locks this year and this package is not up to their usual standards at all.

I have the Lock & Lock HPL20BS 20-Piece Polypropylene Food-Storage Container Setand the Lock & Lock HPL343S16 16-Piece Polypropylene Food-Storage Container Set and both are quality products.

The 20-piece and 16-piece both came in white cardboard boxes that looked exactly like the pictures. Shipped from Amazon. This set came in different packaging and was not shipped from Amazon.

The plastic is thinner, the hinges feel... weaker. And kind of stretchy. The lock part itself doesn't make that delightful solid *thock* sound I get from the others and I don't trust them to stay closed in a bag or purse where they might get knocked around.

The containers all have a "made in Vietnam" sticker on the bottom, the ones I got before are from China, so the different factory might be part of the problem.

I'm pretty disappointed in this batch, frankly. I hope this drop in quality isn't the shape of things to come. I recommend L&Ls to everybody I know (when the subject of containers comes up, of course. (-: ) but I might have to add 'as long as they don't have the Vietnam sticker on the bottom.'

Might just have been a bad batch. I hope so.

On Consumer Reviews it says they may stain the plastic but I have not had that happen yet and usually that happens when you cook spaghetti in the containter which I have not stored or cooked that in a container yet. The are holding up to top rack dish washing! They keep my veggies fresh slightly longer...I add a paper towel to the bottom of the bag. My strawberries lasted with the papertowel a few days longer then they would in the usual case they come in. Don't go buying these for that reason though...you will disappoint yourself for strawberry storage! I have had fresh broccoli in the fridge in a can with papertowel in the bottom and although they smell bad they are still good to eat for some odd reason but opening it up is gross to smell. My fresh snow peas have outlasted the normal shelf life by a week as of now and still look and taste great today same with radishes! They do not leak at all soup for lunch in a lunch pale works great!!!!!! And warming in the microwave with BPA free feels much better for eating! My chips stay fresh for at least a month in them!!!! Stack nice too! Kind of bulky in for storing but can't bet them for the quality it's worth the bulk. Also freezes well!

These containers are amazing. We had purchased and lost through the years many sets of containers. Lots of families and friends used the same types and due to mix ups we never got ours back if we lent them out. No one we know has this set (so no 'mix-up' stolen sets) and they work well. It truly is air tight and has great storage capacity. The only downside is they don't stack in a space-saving manner.

I really like these storage containers - perfect for the smaller items I want to store or put food for luches in. They're airtight and lock/unlock easily.

Look in my pantry and you will see many Lock n Lock products. No cardboard in pantry at all. All my cereals are in LnL cereal holders. All the staples, i.e., sugar, flour, corn meal, corn starch, baking soda are in LnL. Pasta goes into LnL. Dried fruit and chips are in LnL. Coffee and tea do much better in LnL than in a canister. Dog/cat foods are in LnL. Cookies and crackers are in LnL. Don't forget to check my refridgerator too. All milk products in LnL, fruit in LnL. Eggs and bacon in LnL. Shelled nuts in LnL. Check out freezer for meats in LnL. Products last longer and bug free. I would not trade LnL for any other product. I've used LnL for about 8 years. AND I have the prettiest well-organized pantry/refrigerator/freezer.

I was looking for storage containers that I could use in the freezer and microwave. I spend a lot of time away from home due to work and school and buying food everyday is not a great idea. These storage containers are fabulous. The "snap and lock" style containers are very expensive at the stores! The different sizes are great and you really can't go wrong with all these containers, there is a lot of variety. You can store them within each other to save space. Best of all they are BPA free. This is an amazing deal.
