Our Analysis

Several TV news organizations test Smart Lidz with mixed results. Reporters at KLRT in Little Rock, Ark., and KIDK in Idaho Falls, Id., both put Smart Lidz to the test and find that they don't hold their vacuum seal and puncture too easily. A staffer at KDKA in Pittsburgh has a slightly better experience and finds that the lids remain sealed some of the time, but they don't work in the microwave. Another Pittsburgh TV station, WTAE, posts a video on YouTube.com of a Smart Lidz test conducted at a viewer's home; in that test, the reporter finds that the lids do work if pressed hard enough. Customer reviews on Amazon.com are mixed, with the reviews being either completely positive or completely negative, and one user offers a tip that may make Smart Lidz work properly.
