These little guys provide big protection so you can help keep the food you love fresher, longer. Great for taking small snacks on the go, the tight-sealing lids lock in freshness and prevent messy leaks. And they’re microwave-, freezer- and dishwasher-safe, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Farmerswife from I own about 30 of this size! I pack lunches for several people every day. These are the perfect size for fruit, trail mix,, jello, pudding, and even fit muffins and cupcakes. I have these filled up with those items in the refrigerator ahead of time and just pull them out to add to lunches. The lids stack so they aren't all over my cupboard and the containers stack well also. In the frig I have some shallow plastic baskets that I put them in to make accessing them in the frig convenient. I try to avoid all disposable containers for lunches.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Practicality from Won't STACK!!! Falls from fridge and breaks. Since these DON'T STACK, they are impossible to keep in the fridge or on a shelf, making them USELESS. If you try to stack them in the fridge, they fall out constantly and break open on the tile floor if cold, splattering any liquids or sauces. The rounded slippery bottom makes them easy to knock over with very little effort, and the heavy lid makes them top heavy unless completely filled. Add to that the bubble top in the middle, which prevents you from placing anything on them. Very few shelves are 3inches high, so these guarantee a lot of wasted storage space since you can't put them on anything securely, nor set anything on them. Since they are round with a giant gap in the lid and a giant tab protruding, these 4oz containers take up about the same space as an 8oz square container. 4oz is the perfect size, but they should have a FLAT BOTTOM, be mostly square, and have a FLAT TOP with a lip slightly larger than the bottom so that they can stack securely. The interior edges should be slightly rounded to keep food from sticking in the corners. The only good thing about these is that the lids snap onto other lids securely, so that when they aren't being used, the lids don't go flying all over the cabinet. Since the lids do snap together, I'm surprised Glad doesn't provide a cheap plastic stand that would allow you to stack both the lids and the cups next to each other during empty storage. When I do take them to a friend's house (for a potluck dinner), they are equally inconvenient. Instead of stacking together, they tend to roll around in the bag making the bag unstable on the car seat or in the trunk. I hope Glad will make Mini Cubes in the near future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ruby from Perfect size..... for making Jello for lunch boxes and home snacking. The lids snap on tight and make them stack-able in the fridge while jello or pudding sets, also use them for chopped garlic or fresh herbs ready to add to recipes and take own salad dressing to work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Melissa from Lids buckle and leak I purchased these to use for applesauce, dips etc in my kids' lunches. The lids don't quite seem to fit and buckle when snapping on, leaving a tiny gap for food to leak out. Maybe it's the new interlocking lid design? I won't be using these for liquids.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cadet from Seals Tight? Not for me!! I purchased the 1/2 cup Mini-Rounds containers in the canning aisle of King Soopers (Kroger). After many years of sending my annual homemade gift to family and friends (herbal salt/oil skin scrubs) in canning jars, with great success, I decided to try the Glad containers. The claim was that they do not leak. This turned out to be an utter disaster. All of my recipients reported that the boxes they received were an oily mess, and that inside each tub was just salt and herbs, no oil. Why wouldn't these sealed containers hold fluid? That makes no sense to me. One box was returned back to me because of a bad address, and when I saw the oil-soaked cardboard, and the oily bubble-wrap inside, I was so embarrassed. I've always thought highly of Glad before this experience. But it is difficult for me to continue thinking that Glad is quality when the product leaked oil and ruined my 36 Christmas shipments, and my reputation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CJ from Purchased product only because it is the most affordable alternative at this time. Your product (mini-round) was excellent before you made the "new and improved" locking lid storage design and widened the container. Did I miss something? What is the purpose of the raised button area other than making the lids harder to wash? The old lid design without the raised button area stacked fine. If the current design with the raised button area is so good, why isn't it used on all your lids? Thanks!
