Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Storage Containers

Pros
  • Lids attach to base for storage
  • Lids can be used for multiple-size bases
  • Freezer-, microwave- and dishwasher-safe
  • Containers nest for storage
Cons
  • Can stain
  • Smallest size may be too small

Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids are a standout among food storage containers on user review sites. Their popularity is in part because of their organization-friendly lids. Each lid can be stored by attaching it to the bottom of the container's base. Additionally, one lid can be used for multiple sizes of container bases, taking the guesswork out of finding a container's lid. The containers come in 10 sizes ranging from .5 cup to 2.5 gallon. Although some users say they have no use for the smallest 5-cup container, others say the small size works well for transporting sauces and dressings. The biggest complaint from user reviews is that the containers stain when storing foods like tomato sauce. Staining is a common problem among plastic food storage containers in general. The Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Storage Containers don't contain bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical that's associated with health risks in animals. Overall, we found better reviews for Lock & Lock Storage Containers (*Est. $30 for a 16-piece set), which cost a bit more but skip the tiny sizes.

User reviews are plentiful for the Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids and can be found at Amazon.com, Target.com, and Viewpoints.com. However, we found few professional tests on the containers.
