Do NOT use for food due to danger of GLASS CHIPS!
on October 12, 2009
I bought a set of these with one and two gallon containers. They do look good, and "seemed" like they would be great. However, anything stored in them IS SUBJECT to getting GLASS CHIPS in it with use. DO NOT STORE FOOD IN THESE!
I used these for cereals, rice, etc. Any little bump and the rims will chip glass into your food! You may not notice this until too late!
This happened unnoticed and I made rice one day (stored in one of these) and my family found glass chips in their rice!
It's just not worth it! I've used other ones that actually have a little rubber seal on the rim (These do not) and liked them until I saw another chip...
Now I'm using 100% stainless steel containers, with the stainless steel lids (with rubber seals) that have glass tops (like some cookware has) and never have to worry about my family's safety again.
