I do love Lock&Lock containers and this one is no different. Seals well. Stacks and looks great in the pantry. But (and there's always a but) don't be fooled by the picture of bread in this container. This might hold a mini loaf, but it's not going to hold most sandwich bread. Now I need another Lock&Lock!

I was looking for some airtight containers to store some valuables in, and I thought I would take a gamble on these Lock & Lock Food containers. Since there are no model numbers for any of the containers, the ones I bought are listed as 2.3L/2.4Qt/78Oz on their label. Amazon also lists them as 9.6 cup (78 oz = 9.75 cup, if you want to be precise. The product description lists the dimensions as 9.1"(L) x 6.5"(W) x 3.7"(H), but I was sure these are the external dimensions. What about the internal dimensions? For my application I wanted something that could store an item that is 3.0" high. Would it fit?

I just received the containers, and I must say I am very impressed with them. The plastic itself resembles a clear, tough nylon. Exceptional quality, particularly the hinged lid. The hinges look to me like they will last forever and do NOT require a great deal of hand strength to either open or close. I was worried that because they were so easy to open and close that they might not be truly airtight.

So is it airtight? I added a couple of cups of water to the container, snapped on the lid, turned the container sideways, then rotated it in 90 degree increments to test the seal. Perfect! Not a hint of leakage. It is indeed leakproof, and based on my rigorous test, presumably airtight, too!

Finally, what about the interior dimensions? Molded plastic items like this always have a small taper to them to let them come off of the mold when they are manufactured; if they used perfect right angles, the containers would never easily come off of the molds. I got out my steel ruler and eyeballed the dimensions at the bottom of the container, where the interior dimensions are smallest. Just based on an eyeball measurement, I would say that the interior dimensions are at least 8.0"(L) x 5.5"(W) x 3.25" (H). Absolutely perfect for my needs!

For those who worry about such things, there is a small "made in Vietnam" sticker on the bottom that is easily peeled off.

All in all, I rate the Lock & Lock containers to be first rate. As the saying goes, you get a lot of bang for your buck. I don't see how anyone can dislike them. When I want containers in the future, I will unquestionably select Lock & Lock!

This container is a very good size for storing 5 lbs of rice, a container of flour or an 8 lb bag of quinoa. It keeps the items much fresher.

I have become a big fan of Lock & Lock containers. They are airtight, watertight, and very easy to open and close once you get the hang of the four flaps that clamp down from the lid onto the container. Even with daily use, I have yet to have one of the flaps wear out or break off. Items that tend to absorb moisture from the air do especially well in these containers and I can buy larger, economy sizes and have them stay fresher longer. Use them in the pantry, the refrigerator, the freezer. They are great.

This particular container is about 7.5 inches tall and will hold a 2 pound bag of confectioners sugar. They are all wider at the top than the bottom, and I have started to store them in the cupboard with one upside down and the one next to it right side up to be able to fit more containers in the pantry.

I ordered this box to keep small loaves of bread in so they would stay fresh. It isn't quite the size I needed, but I made it work. It is great and hopefully our bread won't mold this summer and will last as long as we need it to. I love lock n locks.

Ordered just one of these containers to see if it would work with the portable storage unit in our pantry. (Ever Concept 6-Tier Rolling Storage Cart) The shelves are only 10" wide so I had to find containers that would fit and look good. I am ordering five more Lock and Lock containers. I was able to pack 35 packets of Quaker Instant Oatmeal in this 131 - Fluid Ounce container. Though the photo makes it look a bluish color they are actually clear with a thin blue seal on the lid. No quessing what is inside. I have no qualms about using this product in a freezer. As a sidebar I would suggest you allow a plastic container to warm up a bit once to take it from a freezer. Not a long time; just enough for the plastic molecules to expand so the container does not crack from being forced open while frozen.
I love this container. Easy to open, attractive and well worth the money.

I read (I think it was written in lock & lock website) that you should leave any lock & lock that has been in freezer out for a minute or two before trying to open the tabs. This is to keep them from breaking off from the cold. My only problem with the product is that it is described in cups. I need inches to know if things are going to fit. It is used for more than food.

We used these to try and organize our freezer. The product stated they were freezer safe, but we have had 2 break already just by trying to open them. They seem perfectly fine for other purposes, but not the one we had intended.

I got one of these to use to keep the cat from chewing through the bags of bread on the counter. It seals great and has kept my bread and chips fresh. It snaps shut so if you drop it its not likely to open and spill. I noticed my bread keeps longer too. It will hold 2 five pound bags of flour. Its size fits my large bread machine loafs with room to spare.
