Really pleased with the size of these bowls as so many bowls seem to large. Good price for two especially as you get four lids in two different styles. However, I must have done something wrong as over a course of a couple of months or so both bowls developed cracks and had to be thrown. I didn't handle them heavily nor leave them in the microwave for longer than necessary so I think I must have been unlucky. I'm still looking for another brand in the same size. Update: thank you Lakeland for sending me a couple of replacement pots. 5 stars for efficiency and second to none Customer Service!

Fantadtic little bowls!”
I recently bought these to replace the older style clear plastic bowl which I had had for a while. These are absolutely fantastic. I love the fact there are two of them so if you only want half a tin of beans for instance, you can use one bowl to microwave the portion and use the other bowl with the fitted lid to store theremainder in the fridge. I am so impressed I intend to buy more from this range.

Great fridge pots”
I've had the clear pots and now replacing them with red ones. I know they wont stain but I prefer the clear as when they are in the fridge you can see what was in them from the side. A great help when youve got a full fridge and you are a short person dont have to move the whole shelf around to find the right pot.

Microwave mini pots”
by Rebekah Stoneham
These little pots are great not just for using in the microwave but also for storing food in too as they come with vented microwave lids and also lids to seal the pots to store in the fridge. Excellent for the age old problem of only using half a can of beans etc.. Problem solved!

Save on waste, spills, pots & a clean microwave too!”
These are wonderful bowls, I no longer throw half a tin of anything away - tins usually spill in the fridge - these babies are really good, just pop the fridge lid off and the microwave lid on and away you go - I now have 4. Thank you for another wonderful product Lakeland.

Great little pots”
Like another reviewer, I use these mainly for baked beans - just the thing to split a standard size can into 2 servings. Good to have 2 caps for each pot - one vented for cooking, the other airtight for storage. Lugs on the sides of the pot make them easy to lift when hot- the vented lids take off easily without creating a vacuum after cooking, and it's easy to serve the contents. Also, it's miles easier to divide the contents of the tin equally between the 2 pots, rather than try to guess where is halfway down before returning the tin to the fridge. Good robust material, and fun to use.

from microwave to table”
I have found that microwaving individual portions of food in a basin e.g. variety of vegetables;and taking it to the table very handy. You can then take small portions and the rest stays hot in the basin until you need it. Your red basins are very pretty but I would like to see something along the lines of your apple bakers. Any sugguestions?

THese red pots are brilliant, very sturdy & good strong quality. The colour stops the pots from looking stained & is a clever idea. I bought 2 sets of these & also the bigger ones. My husband hates stains so this is a great buy for me. The lids work very well & there are different lids for storage as well as the microwave. Well done Lakeland.

great product really pleased”
I wanted some small pots to use in my new microwave which was somewhat smaller than the ancient one it replaced. This set is just the job great idea having the two types of lid one for storage and one for in the microwave ideal for veg and soup. They are good quality and cute all in all very pleased.
