Heavy and it leaks
on October 19, 2011
I'm actually surprised people have rated this product fairly well; I think they haven't used their containers yet. The lunch container is a good size and will fit a sandwhich plus sides; unlike other small lunch containers. However the directions state to put your sandwhich in a plastic zip lock, so it won't get soggy from the condensation from the frozen cube. Well, I'm trying to reduce trash and not use so many sandwhich bags, so that was a little disappointing.
I used the container and made certain everything snapped on tightly and found every compartment had leaked into the other compartments. Worst of all the items leaked out of the container into my son's lunch bag -ugh a big mess. The items were not even that leaky: pasta, peanut-butter and apples (for dipping.)
The freezer lid is a little heavy either way (frozen or unfrozen.) The freezer cube is attached to the lid, so you have to freeze the whole lid, which is a little weird- but certainly not terrible. The lid for the utensils is a little hard to open for me, so much more for a toddler.
All in all, its a decent container for dry goods mostly.
