They're perfect! While the little lid looks flimsy, it actually provides such a solid seal that I can bounce it around in my purse and it does not leak. What's more, my homemade juice tastes like new when I crack it open, better than a glass jar. They are made from durable #5 plastic, which is one of the re-usable types least likely to leach bad stuff into your beverage. After I drink my juice, I seal them back up so they don't dry up and that makes it a breeze to clean it when I get home by just running a quick sponge over it. I've used them for juice, salad dressing, yogurt, sauces... nothing has stained the plastic yet. I haven't tried them in a microwave or dishwasher; I don't know if I would because I'd hate for the lid to warp.
Anyway, I use these for just about everything. I bought a 30 pack, and just came back for more! I do a lot in bulk, and freeze small portions of pizza sauce, soup, etc. My recent discovery of homemade yogurt has been my biggest excitement for these little jars!
My kids love, LOVE fruit on the bottom yogurt. I hate all the sugar added. I started making my own yogurt, using my crockpot (just google crockpot homemade yogurt, it is super-easy!) and fresh or frozen fruit on the bottom, and the kids get SOOOO excited picking out their own individual container. They are easy enough for my kindergartener to remove the lid at lunch, but the seal is solid. Did I mention I am saving a small fortune on these individual yogurts, now that I can reuse these containers?
Back to these little containers though. The ones I already have are going strong after over a year of use. No leaking, stack perfectly, and they clean up beautifully in the dishwasher. For plastic, they are durable! I did break one when I dropped it on concrete while it had frozen soup, but that is the only one that has been damaged. These are a great value! I highly recommend them, and may be back for more if I find that 60 is not enough. : )
UPDATE: These containers are still going strong, years later!
I am slightly obsessed with screw-top food storage containers and recently purchased another comparable container, Glad LockWare. Of the 4 I have used, Glad is my new favorite, and the available sizes are just what I'm looking for. My new ranking:
1. Glad LockWare (Glad Lockware Bags, Small, 3 Count (Pack of 3))
2. Ziploc Twist 'N Loc (Ziploc Twist 'N Loc Containers, Small 2 Cup, 3 Containers & 3 Lids (Pack of 2))
3. Rubbermaid TakeAlong Twist and Seal (Rubbermaid TakeAlongs 1-Cup Twist and Seal Containers, Pack of 4)
4. Ball Plastic Freezer Containers
Glad is very similar to Ziploc but made of slightly thicker (sturdier) material, and it stacks better because of the raised circle on the lid. Plus, unlike Ziploc, there is an Extra Small size. Freezer, dishwasher, and microwave safe. BPA-free #5 polypropylene plastic.
So far, all my containers have withstood dishwasher washing and freezing very well with no breakage...except for Rubbermaid. I've had a casualty in the dishwasher - I found one completely cracked. Rubbermaid may not be the sturdiest. Thankfully I've found a comparable replacement size with Glad.
As for leakage, reviewers of all brands seem to have had different experiences. I have not had any leakage issues with any brand, but I normally use these in the freezer and not for travel.Read more ›

Great product in theory, but they should not advertise it as dishwasher safe. I should have read more of the reviews. The lids cracked after only one wash in the dishwasher. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Paula
Great in theory, but as others have said, the lid is prone to cracking and does not seal tight. Also, the tapered shape of the container itself makes them tipsy and prone to... Read morePublished 15 months ago by Miss Ann Thrope
