What happened?

I've purchased three sets of the Rubbermaid Premier storage containers over the past few years. My first set lasted the longest and I used to rant and rave about them. I had found the perfect food storage containers. They didn't stain, they didn't cloud and I could attach the lids to the bottoms of the containers when not in use AND the lids would attach to each other. My food storage and cabinet organization issues had been solved. I used to recommend these to everyone! I don't know if there was a change in the manufacturing or what, but my containers have started to cloud and I now have more lids than bottoms because I have had to toss the containers due to cracking. I take Rubbermaid at their word - FREEZER and MICROWAVE safe, however, I have never used them in the freezer. What happened to your wonderful product? I am now in search of another food storage container set. I don't want to buy yet another set of Rubbermaid containers to only have them last a year before cracking. I'm looking for recommendations from other users, or perhaps test the future Rubbermaid product.

Lid design change and cracking

Customer review by timo48

The new lid design does not snap together with the previous design lids for storage...not good. I have experienced cracking, but only at the center of the bottom at the injection molding point on 9 and 14 cup containers ( starts there and over time becomes larger and eventually leaks) I've never had any of the smaller containesr crack, and I've never experienced tomato sauce staining. These containers are amazing for storage and prep...I have 32 of all sizes...try these and you won't be disappointed....but put your name on them...people like them so much...they "forget" to return them....I gave up with two of my daughters...I got them both big they love them!

Too Many Cracks

I loved the containers when I first bought them less than a year ago. Now just about all of them have cracked. I had to throw one away because it leaked in the refrigerator. I took a chance and bought a new thirty piece set today. I hope they last longer then one year. I would give this product a five star rating if the containers did not crack/leak.

I was so excited when my Rubbermaid Premier storage containers arrived. My family and I were so happy SheSpeaks had chosen me to review these storage containers. I shared my set of containers with my mother and sister so that we all could have enjoyment and use of these spectacular marvels of storage. I was especially surprised with the quality and stylish design of the containers. It was great, there was no more searching for lids, everything snaps together so the lids don't get lost. Yeah!! I was very happy with the fact that they stack together inside each other and took up less room in my cabinets. There was no worrying about staining the containers with tomato sauce or anything. I used them to save leftovers, snacks and small items for lunches. I have gladly recommended them to all my friends and family. I have even purchased another set in one of my favorite colors (hot pink) just so i could have more of these storage containers. I can not say more about how great these containers were.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I was hoping these would be the same as I bought in the store, but they have changed the design and they do not seal as tightly as the older ones I have.

Older style was awesome

I bought an older style about 11 years ago. Loved them enough that I bought multiple sets. About 3 years ago they started breaking on me, but after 8 years of daily life use, I was okay with it. Last year I finally broke down to but the latest version- I have the purple set. They things suck! I had one bowl melt in the microwave. I had another break after 3 months. They aren't coming clean- I have a permanent cheese stain on one bowl. Many of my bowls have crinkle cracks around the rim. They actually look worse than the few remaining bowls I bought 11 years ago. Im not a fan of the stacking lids; they get in my way more because I can easily move the one lid with out taking the entire stack out. I will not be purchasing these again. I will looking to replace with glass bowls, but not rubbermaid's glass option.

Not great for a meal

This is a very pretty container and I have been looking for a separated container for a good price. This one did not keep a good seal for very long, the lid seems to want to slide up. Also, I would have liked the lid to lay flat against the sections so the food would not mix if the container got topped or slid around. This container was a good price but I am now on the lookout again for a suitable lunch dish.

I had a few of these through the years and I loved them. They never stained and always looked presentable. I recently bought a new set because mine were cracking. I was so mad that THE VERY FIRST TIME I stored leftover macaroni and sauce in one it stained terribly and I can't get it clean! I looked to see if there were any reviews saying thus happened to someone else--seems I am the only one--but why? Did I do something wrong? It was plain spaghetti sauce!

I have had to throw away 4 of my premier microwave container lids which fit the 9 cup containers because they wouldn't seal. I would like to find replacement lids as I love the containers themselves. I have various sizes in the collection but these sized lids are the only ones that have not held up.

The Rubbermaid Premier Storage Containers are easy to use, store, and clean. So many of my storage containers have been stained by foods like tomato sauce. These Premier containers claim that they resist stains and odors, so I had to try it out. I made spaghetti for dinner last night and used a container to warm up tomato sauce in the microwave. I also used one of my old storage containers to warm some sauce up. After dinner when I did the dishes I got to see the results -- the Premier container rinsed completely clean with just warm water (after the sauce had already dried to the sides), but my old container needed to soak with warm soapy water. Even after letting the old container soak, the container still had slight stains. The Premier containers are easy to use with flex and seal lids and easy to store with the Easy Find lids and nesting capabilities. They are also shatterproof. The Rubbermaid Premier Storage Containers are a fantastic addition to my kitchen and I would highly recommend these affordable containers.

Purchased a set, and was originally very happy, products are starting to crack and my set is starting to shrink after only 6 months. I am not sure if I will stick to Rubbermaid going forward. I thought these would last many many years. I have purchased numerous Rubbermaid products in the past and was very happy so it is possible this is just a fluke, but it looks like this may be the new status quo after reading some of the other reviews. Please fix this Rubbermaid, your products used to be amazing.

Premier set

Customer review by lily143

I find your premier set is just what I needed. I can relate to the other comments, a few of my container cracked and broke, some are half way cracked but I still use them for dry food instead of wet food. Sometime, I wish I can just buy a replacement containers without the lids, because i have so many lids since bottom containers cracked and no usable any more and I had to discard them. I don't have problems with the lids, although sometimes I get dried stuff on it, so I soak them to loosen it up then clean it, it works well, however sometimes I wish I have a brush to use that fits well so I can clean immediately instead of waiting. Do you have replacement containers, my lids are in very good shape, no cracks , I have used them on microwave ( once or twice only, since I don't like using microwave, only once in a while a work, if needed). I have soak my containers in a small amount of Clorox to remove some tomato stains, I hope that is ok.

I have been reading the reviews of the Premier line of containers and you do not get high reviews. I have 2 sets, black lids and blue and I love them. I do NOT microwave in them and I didn't put them in the dishwasher for a long time but then started to and they are cracking on the bottom. Rubbermaid, you should address these complaints. I love them but don't know if I want to buy another set.

Durability and availability

Customer review by SueBeeToo

I have/had the red set as well as the black set. My experience is that the clearer the bottoms (black lids), the more they are prone to crack, and the semi-clear (red lids) are prone to stain and melting in the microwave. One issue is that you cannot buy a set of the size that you want without the individual price being a lot more than a set that includes sizes that you don't want. Why not have an option of a set of 12, 8, or 6 of the same size?

Lids leak!

I have had some of mine for years, and have some unopened ones. Agree that larger sizes would help. Problem is that the lids leak, and that makes it useless for travel or lunch box use.

I bought two sets of the Rubbermaid premier with black kids and I initially loved them; however, the plastic bases crack and will leak. The lids are still good and it was disappointing to find out that you cannot purchase replacement bowls.

I have over 20 of these containers in all sizes and I love them all. The soft square shape fits nicely in the fridge and the clear sides let me see easily what is inside. I purchased mine a few (5 ish) years back , prior to the re-designing that brought the awful red colored lids and the unsightly swirly patterns on the sides ( to differentiate the containers as now being BPA free). I genuinely wish that Rubbermaid will bring back the modern and contemporary look that the totally clear containers with the black lids had. They look so nice in the fridge and they go with all kitchen colors Many people comment on mine because there is nothing like them out there - you are missing out on a large market segment that is tired of boring looking containers and tomato red!!!!! I would love to get a few more large sized containers like this, but I will not buy the red ones ................sorry.

These Rubbermaid compartment containers were a God-send years ago when my parents were ill and needed their meals prepared. My sisters and I each bought 4 and when it was that person's turn to prepare meals, breakfast lunch and dinner went in these containers, covered with a little waxed paper and placed in the freezer. All my parents had to do was pop the top and heat in the microwave. Voila.. delicious homecooked food! Now that my husband is older and forgetful, I prepare his meals the same way. He likes the compartments because they hold just enough. I like this product because as they always do, Rubbemaid makes my life easier.
