practical, simple, truly stackable”
These, and their larger size, are great little freezer containers, which stack so well (the lids, too) that they take up minimal space in the cupboard and are very stable in the freezer drawers. The lids don't clip on to make them leakproof, so I wouldn't use them for carrying liquids on a journey. But for the freezer, they are perfect. Colour coded lids and surfaces to which Lakeland labels firmly adhere (but can be peeled off cleanly when you remove them from the freezer) make it easy to find things even in deep freezer drawers. One size smaller (say 200ml) would be a very useful addition.

Not air tight”
These are cheap and useful, but ARE NOT AIR or WATER TIGHT! Some carryout containers from fast food outlets are better.

Wash well, used in microwave and freezer - just brilliant! Bought my first ones about 10 years ago and still going strong! PS LOVE the way the lids fit other sizes!

The best storage boxes”
by Kate Dawson
These boxes have been firm favourites for years: the lids are interchangeable with the sizes, the different colours for different foods, easy to write on, flat enough for stickers, and the sizing is perfect. Don't go changing them again.

Not only for the Kitchen”
Who would have thought such a small box could cause so much excitement? Using these boxes in their several sizes means that all those small bits and bobs that get everywhere except where they should be can actually be kept in some order - I've got them full of screws, nuts (mechanical and edible), bolts, nails (wire not finger), fuses, switches, kitchen bits, workshop bits, heck I've even got food in some of them! Colour coded lids as well (if I could but remember what colour is what!), long may Lakeland keep them in stock!

Great size, but can leak”
I use these boxes daily for bringing my lunch to work. The size is really great, just right for a portion of pasta or other leftovers. However, I do find that the lids aren't terribly leakproof. I always make sure that the tubs are inside a freezer bag, and try to keep them upright in my bag. Anything with a sauce usually leaks a little. I'd recommend these boxes for storing leftovers as the portion size is really good. However, if you're planning to throw them around or have them in any situation where they might not stay upright, you should probably buy something else.

great for colour coding”
by Mrs Orriss
I have used this for many years and they are everything everyone says and more. I use them for colour coding my left overs. I just miss the yellow lids, of which I only have a few left and they are for dairy products, custard, white sauce etc. Any chance of bringing back yellow?

brilliant! perfect portion size for dieters!”
by Miss Gregory
I am so happy to have found the smaller size boxes. They are the perfect size for one or two people. I've no excuse for not sticking to my diet now, as I can no longer overfill large oversized tubs! Thanks Lakeland!

These are just the right size for leftovers and small freezer portions - and need only a small storage space because they stack. We like them so much we bought another 10 within weeks.

My kitchen cupboards, fridge and freezer are turning into a shrine to these fantastically versatile and useful little boxes. My only quibble is that after repeated uses in the freezer the lids can crack along the lip: I'd like to be able to buy replacement lids, please.

I am about to purchase a set of these, having originally bought a set 14 years ago. The original set have been used for my children's lunchboxes every school day, as well as to store food in the fridge and freezer. They have been washed in the dishwasher and have done fantastic service, not breaking or going out of shape. The only reason I'm buying a new set is that my kids have, over the years, managed to lose 6 boxes of the original 10 and they are so useful I can't manage without them. The remaining 4 are almost as good as the day I bought them, despite the hard use they are put to.

Great size, so very useful”
by Miss Verma
As a single person, I find they are a great size for portioning up leftovers to go in the freezer. I only bought these a week ago, and they have come in so handy, I am planning to go and buy another set tomorrow!

These boxes are so useful, especially as they stack. I use them in my larder, fridge, freezer, microwave, and probably the best use of them is in cupboards in a campervan we have. Because they stack they stay in place in the cupboards and the fridge when travelling. i'm actually amazed how much even the smallest size hold, but in fact use all sizes. Thank you for re-introducing them.

Brilliant boxes but..........”
I love these boxes and have most of the sizes but these would be great with a small patch on the lid of a different texture and/or colour so that the contents can be written on in pencil so it is only a temporary label. I use the 400ml a lot for sauces and sometimes they can all look the same!!

These are perfect for individual portions of mince, pasta, soup etc. I thought 10 would be too many but I'm about to order some more.

The design of these boxes mean they stack well both when empty and in use, storing neatly and saving space. Strong plastic with well fitting lids.

This review is for an older version of this product
These are just the right size for individual portions of home-made soup and they stack well in the freezer drawer. They are also nestable, so take very little room in the cupboard. Excellent product which I would highly recommend, especially for the price.
