he nice people Erin, Jim and Lauren at Rubbermaid blog Adventures in Organization are giving me a chance to host a giveaway!
When the package arrived we opened right away
I received a package of 4 TakeAlong squares. The new quick Clik seal makes sure the lids snaps into place. We sealed by pushing in the middle of the lid. They are dishwasher and freezer safe. I tried the freezer. Nice it didn't crack after I took it out and tried to get the food out of it like some container have done to me. At first I thought I over filled them, so I used less the next time and still had the stupid thing crack. Can't freeze things in something cracked.
Rubbermaid will tell you that they are microwave safe but I don't like to microwave any food. Goodhousekeeping did testing on all the plastic containers and none has large amount of phthalates or BPA so I do use them for food storage just don't microwave food in them, I tend to heat the contents to high and melt the package....... But for testing I put some hot tomato sauce in one. It did not stain the container at all. I thought it would melt and stain. It was straight from the stove bubbling hot.
The blue ice fun shape lasted so long! We have used the block blue ice for our lunch bags. Yes most of us who live here, including me take our lunch. Sometimes when I have a short day I take a snack and a drink and got smaller ice packs, you know the ones that look like a pop cap or something like that. They don't last long. I end up with a tepid drink. So I thought this small ice pack isn't going to last the 6 hours before lunch, well it did and was still cool to the touch after 8 hours. The monkey was so cute, Rubbermaid also have a frog and football shapes. Of course the daughter was upset at the time I got the package that she didn't get the football too, seeing how she was excited about the Brown's game on that night and her boyfriend coming over.... but she loves the monkey shape too. Then we tried the container out for his monster sandwich.. turkey, ham, pepperjack cheese, lettuce, tomato, pepper slice, onion and Italian dressing. IT fit! Without smashing the bread down.
Rubbermaid is giving one lucky person from this blog a 4 pack of Takealong square containers and one blue ice
Plus the marker for notes to your child. I know my daughter works with younger kids and they have to mark their containers. They have to mark everything they bring in their lunch box. This was handy to have. Rubbermaid was thinking for notes and we thought before reading the letter, to mark containers for school or work...... LOL
this giveaway will end on September 19 at 1:00 AM EST
Winner will be picked by Random.org
