Just Right For Lunch/Dinner At Work,
This review is from: Snapware 38 Piece Airtight Plastic Storage Container Set (Kitchen)
Ringo did an excellent job of reviewing the pieces. And yes, it is sold elsewhere. I originally was going to buy the glasslock instead of the plastic due to staining when having tomato, barbecue sauces, and the like. However, the glasslock was very expensive, smaller in number as-well-as smaller in size set.
This 38 piece set is perfect for my at-work lunches and dinners. It even has the smaller containers that can be used for condiments (spread mayo, catsup, or mustard on your sandwich right before you eat for a fresh tasting meal rather than at the time of making resulting in soggy bread). I prefer keeping my meat and bread separate too for the freshest taste! You can store meat & cheese in the .48liter container; enough for two sandwiches. Divided containers are great for home-cooked dishes so foods don't mix before reheating; yet they microwave together for convenience and serving (like a TV dinner).
Most of us need to save money in this economy and having this Snapware set allows me to pack light and utilize right-sized containers. The disposable Ziplock are nice but re-use makes them look very old fast and they aren't cheap enough to warrant repurchasing. Plus sometimes the Ziplock brand leaks, whereas Snapware has the rubber gaskets in the lids and four tight snaps around each container making them totally leak-proof!
