Brought the 10pc package, the containers looks very sleek and clean which I like. Unfortunately two of the bigger containers doesn't shut airtight. Did a test with all the containers by lightly shaking them while turned over with lid facing bottom (jar empty) and the bigger two lids falls right off even at seal position. Very disappointed considering its price.
I was super excited to get these and start using them. After getting them all set up I'm very disappointed. They do not seal/ suction at all. I ended up going with a different brand because these are just not worth the $$
My not-even-two-year-old was able to easily take the lid (still “vacuum sealed”) off the sugar canister and spill all in the pantry floor. My other canisters were much thicker and actually vacuum sealed. These just seem so much cheaper.
I love the size, shape, and durability of these containers! I purchased the 20 piece set and I was excited to redo my pantry with these containers.
Unfortunately, they just don't seal well. Even with the popping mechanism in the down position, the lid can be pulled off fairly easily. If tipped upside down when full, the lid came off spilling all of the contents. I returned this set of containers.
The set I purchased had the round popping mechanism and the lids that easy to take apart for cleaning. I have since tried OXO pop containers that I found in a local store that have a square popping mechanism and a lid that does not come apart as easily. The containers with the square popping mechanism seem to seal very well. It appears that OXO has traded functionality for ease of cleaning. Disappointing.
The clarity is awesome.. they are exactly as clear as they are in the photos. They're super sturdy. The containers have a really nice strength to them, and I'm confident, if one were to drop onto our hardwood floor, even on a corner, it wouldn't break. It might not even crack/spider. That's how sturdy it feels.
HOWEVER... the air tight seal leaves a LOT to be desired. I purchased this set of 3 to hold my Lakanto monkfruit sweeteners, and after pouring them into the containers, I'll have to find something else to store them in. First, the containers are much too small to hold even 1 bag of classic "granulated sugar" monkfruit. Of course, if I had been shopping during normal hours, and not in bed as I'm trying to fall asleep, I could have checked the measurements provided & would have seen that they would be too small. Either way, I will be returning them, as they are absolutely NOT air tight. Even after "sealed", a light tug on the top will pull it right off. Only one of the three in the set would stay "sealed", and that simply won't work for why I need them.
If you bake, you know how important it is not to pack flour into your measuring cup. It should always be lightly scooped. I keep scoopers in each of my different flour canisters in order to do just that, but these scoops are more like a measuring cup themselves. The flour won’t slide out the end, therefore packing the flour into the cup. Then when you try to slide it into your measuring cup, it makes a big mess. I am really surprised at the great reviews because of this. I will say that the short handles are nice for fitting the decent sized scoop into smaller containers. But that’s the only positive I have to say. I ended up buying four more scoops that were much cheaper with a much better design.
Compared to the previous series the container tops feel very cheap when you press it down. I compared their old containers and they both weigh the same. However, I notice they thicken the plastic part by another 1oz, however, they compensate the weight at the top. This is probably why it feels cheap.
I love OXO Pop Container and was excited to store my baking items in these, however the sizes do not match the sizes of stuff you get from your typical grocery store. Your standard bag of chocolate chips does not fit in the "chocolate ship" container, your standard bag of brown sugar does not fit in the "brown sugar" container. Do not by this as a package, buy individual, and do not listen to what they are advertised as.
I thought these containers were the holy grail I was looking for. Boy was I wrong! Upon receiving, there was one too that was in pieces and another container that had a crack in it. I figured I would be able to fix the top and the crack wouldn’t matter since it was between layers of the plastic. But now a few more of my containers are cracked, not to mention, all of my dry ingredients have gone bad! These do not suction and are not air tight. There is one container that is very air tight—Please don’t buy! You will be wasting your money.
I have purchased several XOX storage containers In the past few years. Loved the design and easy seal for all my baking supplies and other pantry items. The quality was well worth paying a little more. No more! The containers I recently received are truly a disappointment. The tops do not seal well at all and and will lift off if you pick up the container by the top. Hate to scratch this company from my buying list but will not be purchasing these products again.
