Too large and impractical”
by Ms Scott
These are too big. I hung on the inside of the fridge door and kept catching my hands on it and it would open and empty the contents. They take up a lot of room. Mine is now in the cupboard. Save your money and use a normal airtight container.

Much bigger than expected”
I had a bit of a shock when I was given these as they are huge!!! I incorrectly assumed they would be the size of a lime or lemon but clearly that picture is actually a large grapefruit and not a lemon. That aside they do work and hang in my fridge, keeping my half lemon moist and taking up less room. Also works with half an onion. Only downside is the 'locking' is not very secure and every time they fall off the door on the floor the whole thing falls open. If they were redesigned I would suggest making them 'lock' better and also making the hanging 'loop' deeper so they hang more securely and don't fall off the shelf.

Does it exactly what it promises”
Great product - they do exactly what they promise. Have used for lemon, peppers and onions so far. Easy to use and easy to keep clean. No longer have to do battle with clingfilm.

These are fantastic!! My lemons used to dry out within a day or two in the fridge, now they don't even understand the concept of drying out, not even 2 weeks later (let's just say I forgot about my lemons). These really work beautifully!! only downside is you have to slice off a bit of the lemon to fit it in...otherwise...no biggy ^_^

Half of One and a Poach Pod - Marriage made in Heaven”
by Barbara Hadfield
Hi - Firstly the Half of one is brilliant for containing Grapefruit, I use mine at work all the time and of coarse you can eat from it so no double washing-up ! However, for the second "Half of one" from the set, for me, an even better idea - Put your poach pods in it ! Fantastic, keeps them together and clean. With the best will in the world you know your Kitchen drawers become messy so this is an ideal solution and great if you go camping etc. If you have a "Half of one" and don't know what to put in it, then here you go !!

Bit on the big side....”
I bought these and didnt expect them to be so big! I stored half a cucumber in it so it is multi-purpose....

Too big and not very airtight!”
It is exceptionally rare for me not to like a Lakeland product - but these containers are really bigger than expected and not that airtight, the lemon half I stored went mouldy within a few days - I'll be sticking to lock and lock boxes! Such a shame as they are a cool idea.

These are great. Ok, they are bigger than I expected but as you can hang them from the fridge shelf they don't really take up much room.

Disappointed with size”
When it says "small" it should read medium, I thought that this implied the size of a lemon/onion perfect, however when I opened it they could actually store half a grapefruit, I bought them as a space storage solution, in the end they were useless and are still in the box!

Works perfectly- I have half a grapefruit every morning and it's nice not to have to wrap in clingfilm every other day now.

What a surprise!”
by Mrs Simmonds
By mistake I left half a lemon in one of these containers in the fridge from January 10th in a holiday home. When I returned to the flat on the 12th February the lemon was as good as when it was first placed there. Most impressed by the performance of this container there are very few plastic products that can keep fresh fruit so well for such a length of time.
