Good for plastic containers - NOT air tight/leak-proof
Been using these meal prep containers for a few months now. They've held up pretty well in the microwave and dishwasher. One of the lids chipped on the edge after a dish wash, but that was after a few months of use. I'd say I'm pretty happy with these containers. They're plastic, so the durability is pretty good for the quality of material used to make these. My boyfriend did drop two of the containers which broke on the corners, and we threw them out. However, will be buying more in the future. One thing to note is that they are NOT air tight, so they do leak if you make something like curry or your stir fry has some liquid. The solution I found is to put plastic wrap over the food before you put the lid on. That seems to work pretty well.

My husband and I really try hard to eat well, but our schedules make it tough to cook during the week so we've been meal prepping on the weekends for about a year now to have food ready to go during the week. I found these containers on a Prime Day lightening deal and I am so glad I did - WOW! What a game changer! Instead of taking out 2-4 different containers to make our lunches/dinners, we can go straight from meal prep to these containers on the weekends and everything is ready to go! It's basically like making your own tv dinners for the week! We even stuck a couple of containers in the freezer for 2 weeks and just ate them yesterday - still tasted delicious! Also, the size of these containers is perfect - it makes for great portions and we can fit 2 side-by-side in the microwave. :)
I'll be honest, I was worried about the durability of these containers when I first got them. They seemed like they may be fragile and would break easy, but I was wrong. These wash well in the dishwasher (top or bottom rack since our dishwasher heating element is hidden) and have stood up to a beating in our lunch boxes and bags. I definitely would recommend these to anyone who is trying to prep healthy meals on the go! These would also work well for dropping off food to loved ones! I attached some pics of some of the awesome meals we've been able to prep in these containers.

2 weeks down and holding up well. I handwash with a bottle brush, it only takes a couple minutes. Easy to use, stack and clean. Love them!! Portioned lunch and dinners out for 2 adults in a couple hours.

Surprisingly very sturdy! There are two separate compartments
Surprisingly very sturdy! There are two separate compartments. This helps with portion control and to keep food separated. I got these to do meal prep with for lunches to take to work. Hopefully these containers will help keep me in line and on track with my diet. LOL
But seriously these food containers are sturdy and good value for the price. I will likely purchase more in the future. They hold up well in the dishwasher too!

Good Meal prep trays!
These trays are great and do the job they are intended to do. Ive ran them through the dishwasher several times (top rack only) and they hold up well. We dont put anything liquid in them so can't tell you if they are leak proof. Been through the microwave and have been good to go. They aren't heavy duty containers meant to last a lifetime. But they definitely get the job done. Will be ordering more as my husband and I both meal prep.

Perfect for meal planning and prepping.
We started a new meal plan recently and these make it very easy to prep in advance and bring our lunches & snacks to work. The small compartment fits a little over a cup of broccoli comfortably, and the larger compartment works for entrees (chicken breast and rice, etc). I have microwaved them, but I prefer to transfer the food to a plate beforehand to ensure proper heating.

Perfect for Meal Prep!!
Perfect for meal prep for the week!! I love the two compartment set up so I can have a complete meal without it getting mixed together! Using these by prepping lunches and then just grabbing one in the morning has save me lots of time!! They are nicely made and each has a tight fitting lid that prevents any leakage!

Good for the price, second compartment is actually large enough to be useful
Good size containers -- the lid is taller than many others like this, and the second compartment is good size, so you can actually put a decent portion in there (usually second compartments are tiny).
Medium durability. Four stars instead of five just because there is no tab or corner for opening, so it takes a little effort. Would order again.

Could be better.
Ok so I really like these containers for the most part.
- Absolutely perfect size for one meal and for storing, they don't take up a lot of space.
- Easy to clean and have held up well in the dishwasher over multiple washes.
- The lids are way too difficult to get on and off. Maybe I just got a bad batch but you have to do more work than I'd like to make sure the lids are actually fully secure. And because there's no tab, it's really hard to get the lids off as well.
- They do have a problem with leaking if you have any liquid in the container.
So these have been really great for meal prep and overall I enjoy using them. However, I probably wouldn't purchase them again due to the cons listed above.

Love these containers. At first I wasn't sure about the lid fitting tight because it didn't take much to attach it and there was no clicking sound to tell me it was locked in. But when I went to pull it off it was locked in perfectly. Really enjoy these containers.
