    Promising review: "I cannot believe how much I love these containers. Believe it or not, this keeps my lettuce fresh, much longer than in a plastic bag or factory packaging. I used to constantly throw lettuce away because some would spoil before I got to it. Not a problem anymore! I also decided I wanted to keep a salad bar of sorts in the fridge, with all the veggies and toppings pre-chopped so all my family has to do is put it together and get some dressing. I thought for sure there is no way I can cut up things like cucumber and tomato and have them not get nasty (because I've tried before in regular Tupperware type containers) but amazingly enough it works. I have a chopped onion that's been in there for like two weeks now and it's still fine (I'm the only one that uses onion on my salad). So far all I've tested is tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions as well as regular lettuce and spinach kale. They work amazing for all of it." —Kristina

    Promising review: "These are fantastic. I live in Alaska and not-gross produce is something we only get in the summer time, so I make tons of veggie soup and tomato sauce all summer to get us through the winter. I heart the planet and was using glass containers, but they’re kind of a pain. THESE SOUPER CUBES ARE AMAZING! So far I’ve done ratatouille stew, tomato vegetable soup, and marinara. Not only are my cubes not stained, they work perfectly. I’ve been flash freezing two trays at a time in my deep freezer, transferring the cubes to a silicone freezer bag, and then freezing the next batch. I’ve had no issue with release or buckling, and the portion sizes are PERFECT. The only irritation I have is that the teenager keeps thawing the marinara and dipping *everything* in it and he’s totally hogging it. I think I have to hide the next batch at the neighbor’s." —Knitting in the last frontier

It's magnetic so it goes right on the fridge, it has a LOT of options, plus plenty of spaces to add on things that you may need that aren't on the list.
