    Default Gladware interlocking bowls

    Hello All!

    I bought two sets of Gladware interlocking bowls which I thought would
    be good for freezing small portions of food. They are fine for that
    purpose apart from one thing, the snap-on lids become brittle at
    freezer temperatures and tend to break if dropped or you pull on the
    lift-off tab. The ones with a screw-on lid seem better.

    Thanks for the heads-up, James.

    The lids are also a pain in the neck to separate if they get stuck
    together.

    These are pretty much only good for taking food away from your home
    (i.e., lunch at work), or giving food away to someone.

    Otherwise, I pine for a tupperware set like my mother has, or even a
    rubbermaid container universe.

    I sent more or less the same message to the company. They apologised and
    say they are sending me a coupon usable on my next purchase of Gladware.
    Possibly, their manufacturing facilities will be informed of the low
    temperature problem.
