Mr. Lid – Food Storage Containers with an attached Lid review.
Some people have a sock monster living in their home. Me, I have a lid monster – really! I buy new containerware and within a month nobody is able to find a top that matches or fits, if they can find the lid at all. More often than not the lids seem to just vanish into thin air.
Unfortunately food storage containers are not something we can do without. We do left overs quite often, as my husband prefers to come home for lunch and is always scrabbling for something to eat. I also like to make things, like sauce, in large quantities and freeze it for use on a night I am short on time or not feeling up to cooking.
When I came across Mr. Lid it was like they had heard my call for help. Mr. Lid actually comes with the lid attached to the container with a hinge like function. Upon first seeing the ads I was mesmerized – yes, I love my tupperware type products that much – but, I thought it was too good to be true. I mean you can drop them, crush them, shake them etc. and everything stays within the container. There was only one way to find out how well they really worked and that was to try them for myself.
Now, honestly, even if they weren’t great, I really loved the concept and would have been satisfied using them as storage in the fridge. However, when they arrived I was pleasantly surprised. They’re rather simple looking but great quality and really sturdy, not complicated and easily organised. But above all they really seemed to lock my foods in. The kids and I had a great time adding some veggies to one of the containers closing the lid and shaking it all around and upside down like it was a maraca. The best part was that it stayed sealed and I wasn't left sweeping up soggy veggies after a failed experiment.
We’ve only been using them for about a week, but so far, so good. And if any point within a 30 day period Mr. Lid does not live up your expectations they offer a full money back guarantee. Mine are staying for good!
With Mr. Lid you can also take your leftovers straight from the fridge to the microwave as Mr. Lid containers are BPA free, microwave safe, dishwasher safe and freezer safe.
If you, like me are super keen to give them a try do it!
