Costco members only, if you love the Rubbermaid brilliance like I do, I got 4 sets of this and the recent amazon deal. These are amazing, leak proof, light weight, made in USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ These have a lifetime replacement warranty!

I recently saw 4 and 6 pieces at target for $15. I replaced all of my old with this new. These stack, except for lids (lids can be stacked basically, but not made to snap together).

Offer ends 10/28

I switch to glass only. Plastic eventually starts to pit in the dish washer.

This is interesting. I was just in the market for switching all my food storage containers to Tritan.

How do these compare to Wellslock from Sam's?

28-piece for $30:
https://m.samsclub.com/ip/wellslo...od22441082

The Wellslocks are made in South Korea and have been popular there for a few years now. The products are designed by a former Samsung chief product engineer and also apparently carry a lifetime warranty. Sam's just started carrying them recently though they've been available from Walmart for twice the price for a few months now. I'm not sure if this is a promotional price or permanent.

They are also made of Tritan, and can also be used in the microwave, dishwasher and freezer. A few thoughts from some cursory research:
1. The Wellslock ones use silicone for sealing. Rubbermaid doesn't say what's used in theirs, but from some reviews mentioning melting in the microwave, I'm guessing rubber? People are saying they called Rubbermaid and were told not to microwave for more than 30 seconds at a time.
2. The Wellslock containers seem to be larger capacities overall. Ex, the smallest Rubbermaids are 4oz and the smallest Wellslock are 8oz.
3. The Wellslock ones seem less rounded/sloped, and there also seems to be (?) lesser projection from the lid. That would make them more space efficient in the fridge? Not sure about this one.
4. The Rubbermaid has stacking containers and lids. Not sure about Wellslock but looking at the boxy shapes I'm guessing they don't?
5. Single tab on the Wellslock vs two on the Rubbermaid. Wellslock claims their single tab provides an equivalent seal to a 4-tab locking lid. From looking at Korean videos online, the single tab seems pretty quick and easy to use, but I don't know anyone who actually owns these. English reviews seem to be just the handful on the Sam's website.

Thoughts?

I picked them up on 10/3 and they're pretty good. The smallest size isn't that useful but for some fruit at lunch it's ok.

can you speak to how the seals work for these? We were gifted a set of name-brand containers that have rubber seals that are a nightmare to get off of the container, clean and then insert back into the container. Maybe some people don't ever clean the rubber seals or under them thus not having this problem but that seems dangerous depending on what is being stored.

I haven't tried removing the rubber from the plastic. I've just used a sponge and brush to clean. I'm not sure you could even get it off but I don't think you'd need to.

Almost bought it in store, but I feel like I need to have some circular bowls. Still, TU for good deal.

I had this, gave them away. Personally hated them, I really like the rubbermaid rubber lidded ones for stacking and storability. These just sucked, did nothing better than the old rubber ones do.

I got these as a gift and not a fan. They can't be filled to the top and they pop off if you manage to force to close.

I have these from the last time there was a coupon. I love them! I loved them so much I bought a second set before the sale ended last time. The rubber part cannot be taken off, but it's easy to clean under/next to it. The seal is very tight. I have not stored any liquid in it and I don't microwave in any plastic so I can't speak to that.

I purchased these right before the deal having seen them tested on America's test Kitchen and having held up against chili stains, being dropped from a kitchen counter and not breaking. The brilliance set bear out all other plastic containers. Luckily, got a price adjustment for the sale price. I accidentally dropped a dish from the refrigerator and the lid stayed in tact which was a huge relief.

I literally had one leak in my bag today.

I bought them a few months ago for weekly meal prep and have loved them so far, easy to clean and didn't leak. As I found today, the lids aren't making a tight seal anymore. I called their warranty number today and they are shipping free replacements, but I'm not sure I can trust the containers again.
