These containers are of the same dimensions as those you get from takeout restaurants. They are standard sized and the lids and containers are interchangeable, nestable, and stackable. No need for extra shelve spaces just for different sets of containers.

One of my pet peeves with containers have been the inconsistant sizing and shapes of sets you frequently see in stores. You buy a new set and a few months later, you need more and can't find the same things again. I found that I ended up with different stacks of containers that just don't nest neatly to save space.

One big bonus if you also plan on get the 8oz. size to compliment your 16oz. containers.... They use the same lids! These plain workhorses do their job inexpensively, no fuss, and plays well with their mates.. lol. And when I get take outs, I can reuse them without making extra stacks on the shelf.

I plan to make big batches of soups and sauces for the freezer, and these will make the process simpler and neater. I plan on getting more of these containers in different sizes after I get a dedicated freezer. Now, how do I save space while storing the unused containers? I plan to make a storage tube for these containers out of 6" PVC pipe and caps. That way, I will save even more space in my kitchen shelves between my cooking binges!

I do a lot of OAMC cooking. I use a Foodsaver for some things but I needed a better way to freeze soups and stews. I love Reditainer! I bought the 8 oz and 16 oz sizes. The lids do make a tight seal but that is what you want when freezing. Air is the enemy. After cooling down the food in the containers I always take a piece of plastic wrap and press it down onto the top of the food in the container. This pushes any extra air out and adds another layer of protection from air. Once I have attached the lid I cut away the extra plastic wrap around the lid. Further cool in fridge over night and then put in freezer. Regardless of the container I have used I have always had success with this method. You can not depend the burping of the lid to remove excess air. I love the way these containers stack in the freezer. Using the zip type bag and freezing flat is good...until you get to the bag that had a small hole that you didn't know about...or because of being moved around the freezer gets punctured. Reditainer is my new go to for freezing!

The lids are a bit hard to open and close than the Ball containers but the price is so much cheaper.But you get what you pay for.I tried hard and finally got what I looked for from the internet.It is BPA free.That is the key.Seller should have put it in the product description.

I purchased the 36-pack of 16 ounce containers specifically for freezing soup, fruits and vegetables. The size is perfect. I make large batches of chicken noodle soup and then freeze it all in these containers. I transfer 1 or 2 containers to the refrigerator a day or two before we’re going to eat them. They’re great for taking to work for lunch. I just pop one in the microwave and eat it directly from the container.

On the bottom of the container, it states “Microwave Reheatable” which is an important distinction to make – that doesn’t necessarily mean “microwave-safe”. When taking the container out of the microwave, the lid is definitely wavy and the container itself is soft and very hot. I wouldn’t leave the containers in for more than 45 – 90 seconds. To leave it in longer, I would be concerned about them beginning to melt or leaching chemicals into the food. One reviewer had posted that these are ‘BPA free.’ I assume the reviewer must have containers that state that somewhere, but on the containers I received from Reditainer, nowhere did it indicate on the packaging or containers themselves that these are BPA free, so I have to assume that they are not. That is the one big criticism I have of these containers, but if the manufacturer/seller doesn’t state it, I’m not going to trust a reviewer stating it unless there are photo’s to prove it. I’ve posted a photo of the bottom of the containers I received which are stamped “Reusable. Microwave Reheateable. Top Rack Dishwasher Safe.” The recycle symbol is #5 PP which stands for Polypropylene which is considered one of the safer plastic with a high melting point, but it’s necessarily accepted by all curbside recycling programs, so something to keep in mind if you live a green lifestyle and prefer to use environmentally friendly products.

These containers are very similar to the ones you might get from a Chinese take-out, but I don’t order that much take-out, so it’s more cost effective for me to buy them in bulk on Amazon. I like that they don’t leak at all. I literally throw one in my tote before heading off to work and I’ve never had a problem with leakage. I read a review where someone said the lids are hard to get off. Yes, the lids are tight, but I don’t want a lid that easily comes off because it probably wouldn’t be leak-proof. I used to leave the frozen veggies and fruits in the bag they came in or transferred them to a Zip-loc, but these containers seem to keep out the freezer burn much better. They’re stackable, easy to label, easy to store, easy to clean and don’t take on the flavors of the food store. I like that they’re very light weight, so they’re easy to tote around and if one breaks or if your husband leaves one at work in the lunch room, at $0.44 each they’re more cost effective to replace than a glass storage container or even a Zip-loc. If they were BPA-free, I’d definitely give them 5 stars.

The containers are nice and sturdy, but you have to make sure you do not overfill or underfill unless you cover with wax paper. Ice crystals. I am happy with this product!

Purchased 8, 16, 32 oz. Reditainers. Finally got sick of the clutter in my "storage" and "father-in-law to go" drawer: Gladware and ZipLock inter-mixed, etc. Used an oversized courgated cardboard wine case divider to seperate the lids and the three different container sizes from one another. The lids take Sharpie marker and re-marking wonderfully. I like to wash all new items prior to use. Plastic takes forever to dry after dishwashing. The clothes dryer on low works like a charm.

Bought these to store ground up meat in the freezer, so far they work well, no freezer burn (in 1 month at least) and they don't hold the smell of the raw meat once they have been cleaned (just dish soap and water).

I don't have a lot of time to can all of my tomatoes, so I simply blanch to peel, then freeze in containers. These are perfect with no leakage and a great price.

These containers are exactly what I was looking for. They are great for storing soups/stocks and other liquids in the freezer. They stack nicely, and hold up very well in the freezer. The lids are still flexible, and easily removed straight from the freezer. I rarely use them in the microwave, and usually hand wash to ensure a long life.

They hold just enough liquid (leaving plenty of room at the top for expansion) for one serving of soup. Which is perfect for our needs. I use these to store leftover soup, and sauces for a quick from freezer to table meal.

Recently, I have found out that I'm gluten & dairy intolerant. This left me with a few challenges in planning my meals. Since I dislike spending time in the kitchen, I have learned to make a larger amount and save the rest. I use these containers to split my food into serving size portions. Sometimes I just keep them in the refrigerator for a few days but in many cases I put them in the freezer. So far, they have held up well and they make it so much easier for me to maintain my new eating plan.

On the negative side, they do stain easily and they are a little tougher to open than some.
