Snapware is the US distributor, not the manufacturer, but they're not outsourcing to Korea - these were invented for the Korean market (and won an international design award), and Snapware, which makes its plastic ware in the US, decided they couldn't do better. They're providing awesome customer support considering they don't actually make the stuff - I managed to break the lid on one of the boxes, and they sent me a new one with minimal hassles and no questions asked (I sent them a picture of the broken lid via email - how cool is that?).
If you're having trouble getting the lids to go on: make sure the gasket is in the right way - they have a rectangular cross-section, not square, and if they get turned the box doesn't close. Some of the older boxes also had two different lid depths, and two gasket thicknesses, and if you mixed them up they didn't seal properly at all, but I think they finally fixed this. (And of course make sure you have the right gasket in the right lid - some sets are color coded by shape - red=round, blue=square, rectangle=green - but some aren't).
Besides that, no complaints. I wish they had a deep large round to use as a big noodle bowl (feels funny eating noodles out of a rectangle), or even an actual bowl with the snap-on lid. Given how popular these have become for lunches, maybe they'll expand the line.
The best thing is, other than storing my leftovers, I use them for preparations too and also sometimes for serving. They are allrounder.
Cons : they are not conventional oven proof as pyrex and also the lids are such super tights that most of the time I have to ask my hubby to close all four sides.lol.
overall it is a must have for all the kitchens.
I was wrong.
If you have already bought the product, read the bottom of the glass container. It states that it is not for oven use. The reason why is because what you have in your hands is NOT a tempered glass product. Non tempered glass will make sharp glass slivers when dropped or will break apart when subject to severe hot or cold temperatures (aka freezer or hot soup).
I bought a brand new set of the food containers for my wife recently. She promptly hand washed all the pieces and left them to air dry in the dish rack overnight. When I was putting the containers away in the cabinets the next morning, I noticed a one inch long glass sliver that broke off the narrow upper lip of one of the glass containers. Can you imagine what can happen if this glass sliver went inside some food that could have been left in the container? Needless to say, these containers are going to be returned.
Tempered glass is safer glass. It is more rigid and can withstand an occasional bump better than non tempered glass. If you didn't know, all automobile windows and windshields are required to be made of tempered glass. When tempered glass breaks, the broken pieces look more like gravel. Remember what the broken window glass looked like on the street after your car stereo was stolen?
I discovered that Pyrex glass storage containers are made of tempered glass. I called their customer service line to verify this. Read the bottom of one of your grandmother's Pyrex storage containers. It reads that it is safe for oven use. However, the problem with many of the Pyrex lids is that they are not leak proof.Read more ›
