I was so sick and tired or plastic that looked yucky, didn't dry properly, and lids wouldn't fit that when I found the glass Pyrex sets on sale I decided to free myself of plastic. I am so glad that I did. I am amazed. Food even seems to taste better. These containers store well, can be put on any shelf in the dishwasher, and can go from freezer to oven and are microwave safe. They don't stain, warp, or discolor. They won't need to be replaced except in cases of breakage and overall are a bargain. I love the clean looking containers and the new colors of lids are fun and will brighten up any kitchen. Personally, I think they are worth so much more than the plastic and I know I like the way they look in the cabinet. They are great and so inviting that I am actually excited over the clean, fresh looking cabinets. Silly, maybe, but I just love them and encourage everyone to " join me and free yourself of plastic."
