I got a few of these containers from a friend about 4 months ago and I am very happy with them. I really like the divider in the container. I only use them for food storage in the refrigerator; never tried one to reheat food in the microwave. The lids close securely and open easily.
I haven't had these containers more than a month and it very well may be only the 2nd time I've used them seeing as how I have many containers. I stored something in the fridge and went to open it and the lid cracked.....so i had to reseal it with another lid and the same thing happened the very next day. I will NEVER buy another food storage container from Rubbermaid again. Had much longer life spans on GLAD products or even generic containers from Walmart or Kroger. I would attach a pic but I guess the file is too large.
I love the rectangle containers and use them a lot. I wish we could buy just the lids. Mine have cracked. Is there anyplace to buy just replacement lids?
I bought a five pack of these rectangular TakeAlongs last week. Being a loyal customer of Rubbermaid products for years, I was excited to be able to purchase these containers to prep for a week's worth of lunches. However, to my surprise, the lid broke upon opening my first prepared lunch. Thinking it must be a fluke I decided to try opening the other four containers when I got home. Not only did many of them crack the tab used to open them broke right off. I am quite disappointed with this product and now questioning whether I will remain a Rubbermaid customer.
The first time It came out of the dishwasher the lid melted and warped.
First time using the takealongs rectangles and tab on lid has broken off on two of them. Not what I expected.
In spite of the Quik Clik Seal the lids do not stay on securely. Very little effort is needed to pop it off. Seal not tight, leaks. Cannot let them tip at all. Very disappointed.
