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.

Received these as a Christmas gift and really love them. The hold up well and are very durable. As for nesting, they can be stacked and nested. You just need something to contain the lids- I use one of my old tupperware containers :o)

These containers work great BUT do not nest. You will lose a lot of cabinet real estate storing these when they are not in use. I am slowly getting rid of these by giving to friends and family with leftovers. If I had to do it all over again, I would find a product that would nest in each other.

These containers are the best I have ever used. They are totally airtight due to the silicone seal and the 4 locks on each container. I filled one with liquid and turned it upside down and nothing leaked out. Sometimes they seal holds so well it is hard to get the container back open. They are also BPA free so I can feel good about using these for my family. My husband warmed up enchiladas and spaghetti in them and they still look brand new! I bought another pack with larger containers and a set of round bowls and threw out all my old tupperware!

I purchased a set of Lock&Lock 2 years ago simply because they were on sale and cheaper than the Snapware set I was replacing. I loved my Snapware, but apparently my Snapware didn't love my dishwasher and the rubber seals came off. So I gave Lock&Lock a try.

So far, they have worked exceedingly well. After the Snapware incident, I only wash these by hand, so I can't say how they hold up in the dishwasher, but they really are airtight. I store dried goods like rice, flour, soy flour and spaghetti in them (items which tend to attract weevils) but in these containers, they can sit on the shelf for months and the products stay intact, no spoilage and no bugs. Which is more than I can say for when I try to do the same with Ziploc containers or zipper bags.

Not having to run to the store to replace dried pantry goods that I don't use very often has been both a time and a money saver. And I no longer have to keep items like flour and cornmeal in the fridge. The plastic is thick and shatter resistant, as I have dropped them with food in it with nothing happening (those lids stay on for dear life) and they protected my food during a very long and arduous move.

They are not as stylish or visually appealing as Snapware or other brands, and they do not nest, so keep that in mind if space is a factor. But it does keep food fresh longer, which for me is most important. Everything else is secondary to that.

This set includes a good variety of Lock & Lock containers and I've found uses for all these sizes and have also added more pieces to my collection over time. (The large ones are also great for storing pet food.) A few years ago we had trouble with little moths in our pantry in the summer, so after using moth traps I put all of our flour, pasta, rice and grains in these Lock & Lock containers. They are so air tight that you can store liquids in them (which I do) and put them on their side in the refrigerator without worrying about them spilling. I use the small ones to mix salad dressings because you can shake them all you want with no seepage. We have a variety of sizes in the pantry and a set like this for storing leftovers in the frig. Because they're BPA free, you don't have the worry of storing food in them.

A couple times I've left a container or two at a friend's house when we brought food for a party. Months later, when visiting them, I saw that they had bought a bunch of these for themselves. Everyone seems to love them once they try using them. My next door neighbor claims she can keep fresh blueberries in the frig for over a week when they're locked in these containers.

The rectangular ones are great in the pantry because they stack easily. I used to store things in round containers and they took up so much more room. I have these Lock & Lock containers in a variety of sizes and I was surprised at how much more I can stack on a pantry shelf. And because they're see-through, you don't have to go opening containers to see what's inside or worry about labeling them. I've been using these containers for several years and occasionally add a new size to my collection. They are all just as good as new, even after opening and closing them hundreds of times.

I think this is a great set of locking airtight containers. We use them for a variety of things at home, and i use a couple to take stuff like flaxseed meal and pasta to work with me. They dont spill or leak, the locking is tight and doesnt open when jostled in my backpack and such. They dont crack when they hit the ground (which has happened on more than one occasion). They are in my estimation, pretty much perfect. We dont use a microwave, so i cant speak to their durability in those conditions, and i dont quite understand why everybody is worried about nesting. They stack just fine, but really, why own these if you arent going to use them? I consider nesting to be a non-issue. As far as i am concerned, they do exactly what i expect and are quite versatile. I'm glad to have bought a set and plan to buy another soon.

Enjoy!
