5.0 out of 5 stars Should've bought these sooner!, July 19, 2011

This review is from: OXO Tot Baby Blocks Freezer Storage Containers - Green (Baby Product)
I searched high and low for baby food containers...and I wish I would've purchased these from the very beginning. I initially bought some containers that would only hold 2 oz. of food thinking my young infant does not eat that much...well within a month or two, he needed more food...so I ended up buying another set of 3 oz....well guess what? Those ended up to be too small. My advice is to go with these larger containers from the get-go...because eventually you will need something this size (you just don't have to fill it up at the beginning).

Great quality, sturdy, looks great, and each set comes in a tray (stays put on my freezer shelves). Unlike other containers that cracks easily when frozen, these held up just fine. I take them straight out of the freezer and into the microwave without any problems. I've tried some other ones where the lids pop open while in the freezer or sometimes the plastic gets warped or stained...these still look brand new after using them for a month straight. There are very few containers that would hold 4 oz. of food but these are the perfect size because I even put his crunchy snacks in them and it's the perfect portion. Since they do not look like typical baby food containers, I plan on using these for myself for condiments, salad dressing, or side toppings when I bring my own lunch to work. I love these containers so much I bought 5 packs (I usually make a large batch of food at one time). They are not the cheapest containers out there but at least you would only have to buy these once (unlike me! I wasted so much money on the previous ones!)

UPDATE (2015): I bought five packs of these containers 3 years ago....and they are still going strong! I still use these DAILY for my son!! I make a big batch of pasta (like Mac 'N cheese) and freeze them. The 4 oz is the perfect portion as I add other sides to his meal. I now have an infant and plan to use them for her baby food in a few weeks. Now, I do have to say two of the lids did crack when I dropped them on the floor as I was taking them out of the freezer (that's pretty good 2 out of 20!) I do believe most hardened plastic will crack when dropped. Also, a few did stain after I microwaved red pasta sauce in them. I find that if you wash them right away, it's less likely to stain. I have also used these with my salad dressing and other liquids and NO LEAKS!!! Despite a couple of cracks and stains, I am still very impressed with the quality of these as I have been using them for 3 YEARS straight! I am still a fan!!!!

Are the lids easy to get off? I am looking for small containers for my son's school lunches -- to hold ranch dressing or other dips. Do you think a child in elementary school could remove the lids without much risk of spilling the contents?

Yes a child in elementary school would be able to open these. However, they are a little more difficult to open when they are frozen. So as long as they are just refrigerated or room temp, they are pretty easy to open.

I would seriously reconsider microwaving plastic for my precious one. We don't know yet. BPA isn't the end of the story of this experiment on our food.
