Using your Mr. Lid containers
To have the best experience when using Mr. Lid here are some simple answers to some simple questions:
Can you microwave plastic?
Many of today’s plastic food containers are “Microwave Safe”, or made to withstand microwave temperatures. Mr. Lid is Microwave Safe and can be used in the microwave with the lid lifted to allow the food to vent.
How do I nest Mr. Lid stackable containers?
Stacking empty Mr. Lid containers on shelves in cupboards or pantries is a cinch. We recommended opening up the containers and stacking smaller sizes inside of larger ones, using a “nesting” approach.
How to stack containers in the refrigerator.
Once filled with food and sealed tightly, Mr. Lid containers conveniently stack inside of a refrigerator to create more space. We recommend stacking same-size containers or stacking smaller containers on top of larger ones for better organization.
How do I load Mr. Lid containers into the dishwasher?
Like nesting, it’s best to open up empty Mr. Lid containers before loading them into a dishwasher. Then, by turning them on their side, you will be able to maximize the number of containers you can easily load at one time.
