5.0 out of 5 stars Yay, they finally have round ones, August 9, 2010

This review is from: BPA Free Snapware 38 Piece Airtight Plastic Storage Container Set (Kitchen)
I already owned a set of Snapware, but when I saw this set at the local big box store (rhymes with "bosco") I couldn't resist.

Snapware is airtight and leakproof, made from polypropylene, made in the USA, and has a lifetime warranty. They've been making square boxes for years, but this set is finally targeted at the lunchbox set. Wonderful.

From smallest to largest:

- The "mini-bowls" (red gasket) hold four ounces, about the same size as a pudding cup. They'll also do well for dipping sauces.

- The mini squares (reddish purple gasket) are 4"x4" and 2" deep. Good for desserts.

- The shallow small rectangles (blue-green gasket) are 4"x6", and also 2" deep. Good for carrot sticks and such. The deep small rectangles are the same size (and share lids) and are 4.5" deep - perfect for sandwiches (packed on edge).

- The shallow medium rectangles (purple gasket) are 6"x8", and also 2" deep. The right size for a folded tortilla or cut pita bread, or an oversized sandwich. The deep medium rectangles are the same size but 4.5" deep.

- The divided medium rectangles are the same size and depth as the shallow medium rectangles (and will share lids with them, and with the deep medium rectangles). They're designed for a sandwich and snack - there is a square bread-sized hole, and a smaller hole next to it.

- The small bowl isn't so small - about 3.5 cups. It has a domed lid, and cries out for a salad.

- The two large rectangles (dark blue gasket) are very large - more like lunchboxes than lunch boxes. I would use the shallower one for a dozen small cupcakes, and you could probably fit an entire small loaf of bread in the deep one. They share lids, and one of those lids has a handle in it for your convenience.

Since the boxes are designed to nest, and since they share lids between different depths, these boxes will take up considerably less space in your kitchen than other similar boxes. They are remarkably well designed. The only thing I would change about this set is to add a couple of deep mini squares - I use those for packing apples and pears, and they're indispensable.

Recommended.

You're welcome. When I have the time, I'll post some useful photos (like, showing actual sandwiches and stuff).

Are these containers dishwasher safe, friendly?

I've never had a problem with putting them in the dishwasher, though some other people say the lids warp. I always put them on the top rack, and use the air-dry cycle, not the heat-dry cycle.

I just purchased a set from Costco for $24.00. I love them so far!
