“ Brand: Addis / Misc House Type: Storage „
This box is excellent for keeping lunches fresh, you can fill it with pasta, fruit or anything perishable. I use it for lunches and I put things like biscuits and cookies in for snacks when out and about and since it's air tight they last all day in the box and keep their softness. You can keep anything in here to prevent oxidisation.
The tub is extremely easy to wash up since there's no real way to do it, just get a sponge or scourer and give it a quick going over. It doesn't scratch too easily so using the rough side is fine. You can get right round the grooves in the clips at the side too so full marks for ease of cleaning.
I have found this to be quite robust when it comes to dropping or smacking it, especially after rattling around in a bag all day. The plastic is rock solid and quite thick so it doesn't dent easy; I haven't broken mine yet and it's still in good condition.
The plastic is quite smooth, I haven't tried writing on this with a sharpie yet but you can stick stickers or tape to it so you can write on that with a biro if you want. It's useful to have your name on this.
The clips are really strong and don't just come off by accident. They clamp down with a click and take a little effort to get back off again but that's a good thing since the contents won't spill out. You don't need nails to open this, using your index finger you can sort of leaver it out from underneath the clip.
Food hasn't ever gone off in this thing, cookies stay fresh for many hours on end and usually I open this by lunch time having packed it at breakfast so it gets a good few hours use before it's opened again.
Overall this is an excellent tub with many uses. It's perfect for work and incredibly durable. I'd recommend one of these for work or a picnic. They really do keep the food fresh all day. Highly recommended.
I use a lot of Tupperware style tubs in my house and one of the best I have found is the Addis range, I love that there are different sizes available and that they are so durable.
I have a fair few of the smaller sized tubs then I have a couple of the medium tubs for pasta salad and things for me to take for my lunches and then my husband was using a large tub for his packed lunch box.
The tubs are made of see through plastic which is very strong, the tubs have a lid that fits on top of them perfectly and then the lid has four flaps on it which fasten down around the base of the tub to fasten. The lid has a blue rubber seal all around the part that sits on top of the base which makes the seal airtight and keeps any food stored inside lovely and fresh.
I use the smaller sized tubs for portioning up meals for my girls to take to their grandfather and to transport these they go in a carrier bag, as the tubs do tip upside down and roll around and they have never spilled the contents so I confirm they are very secure and spill proof. The tubs are very versatile and can be used in a microwave, freezer and dishwasher, I am not lucky enough to have a dishwasher so I cannot say how good they would be in one however have used them in both the freezer and microwave and they have been fine in both.
My husband managed to break his tub by outing too much food inside for his bait and causing the join between the lid and one of the flaps to break clean off, I have since bought him a cheaper tub for his lunch box.
The tubs are really easy to clean with some hot soapy water and they don't taint with colour or smell which is great as I use my tubs for such a variety of items I don't want remnants of the last contents in them.
These tubs are more expensive than unbranded tubs and the prices vary with the size of the tubs but I would say that the tubs are worth paying the extra for. The tubs don't spill, the lids fit perfectly, the tubs are very strong and they last longer than cheaper tubs too, definitely 5 stars.
==Addis Seal Tight 0.75 litre Container==
I seem to have some sort of weird addiction to collecting different plastic tubs of different makes, different sizes and with different lids. I have a whole cupboard in the kitchen dedicated to housing all these plastic containers and if there is something that needs storing you can bet that I have the right side container for it in that cupboard.
A few years back when these Addis Seal Tight containers came out I remember I bought up quite a lot of them in a various array of sizes. They are sold in a good few different places but I remember buying most of mine in my local Sainsbury's supermarket when they were on a special offer. I am pretty sure that this smaller tub cost me under £1 which I find quite good value for a branded item such as this.
The tub itself is around 4 inches in length and 3 ½ inches in width. It is made of a strong yet durable plastic which is see through and there is a blue rim around the lid. The lid is the really good aspect of this tub as the seal is super tight and you can put all sorts of things inside this container without the fear that it is going to leak or spill out.
The depth of the tub is just under 3 inches and co it can hold nicely 2 thirds of a can of beans with ease and even if it falls out of the fridge (like things seem to do so often on me) there is no chance that the beans will leak from the container. The lid has a rubbery type of grip around the edge of it and the four sides of the lid have little clasps that can be fastened down into place with a little click.
The tub is dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe. But I tend not to put plastic items in the dishwasher so much as they don't dry off nicely and will of course take on any colourings if something like a lasagne has been cooked and dirty plates are washed with the plastic. Same goes however for filling the tub up with beans and as this is something I have often done, the clear plastic has actually taken on a slight orange tinge to it.
I do find this tub great for making up a jelly mix and putting half a pint of jelly water in it and taking it into work to pop in the fridge for it to set. In fact there are so many uses for a little tub like this that it is no wonder I love to collect these little tubs.
For the price I really can't moan about this Addis item. The tub is easy to clean and perfect to use for so many things and ideal to use for when taking food items out and about. It washes up well and is still going strong even though I have used it a lot and I should think it will be going for many years to come out lasting a lot of the cheap replicas that I have bought from Poundland and such like places.
It has got to be a tops core of 5 out of 5 stars and a high recommendation from me for this great little versatile container from Addis.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Lunch is served
Addis to a great range of all different types of lunch boxes and clipped seal tight boxes and are perfect for when we want to take lunch with us.
When my little girl and I go out for the day we tend to always take a packed lunch with us. For £3.99 this Addis lunchbox is ideal for packing our sandwiches and keeping them fresh until we need them. Addis have been producing homewards since 1780 so they have a long standing tradition of good quality products. According to their website, "As an international, independently owned company, they have a proud 200 year old history of design, manufacture and supply of housewares. The ADDIS brand still stands today, as it has for previous generations, for value, quality and innovation."
There are various different sizes of lunchbox but this one is 0.7L. I have a number of different boxes but I like this one because it is smaller than others and fits into our changing bag well. It is what Addis call a seal tight foodsaver and I have to admit that it does seal very tight. In fact sometimes the lid is quite hard to get off as there is not little lip on one side like Tupperware products have. The box has little plastic lips that snap shut every side of the box and they really do snap shut with a bit of a bang and you know that you have sealed them tight. However, having said that it is a really good fit and you never have to worry about your lid falling off like some little cheap plastic lunch boxes do.
You can purchase one of these lunch boxes with either a blue lid or a white lid. I have the white lid which is made of a white plastic. The bottom part of the lunchbox is see through plastic so you can see what is inside, handy if you use these for food storage but as I only use them for lunches then it is not a problem. The box can take hot foods in it so you can use it to store leftovers in which is a nice option to have.
The lunchbox is quite deep so you can definitely fit an apple it it and have the lid still close. All in all a good cheap way to carry your sandwiches.
After having always had sandwiches for her school lunch my daughter has suddenly shown an interest in some sort of pasta salad.
I have come to the conclusion that this is due to her best friend Hayley starting to bring them in her lunchbox, I am not complaining but this being the case the review I will now write is on a vital piece of equipment!
The product I will now review is - "Addis seal tight 0.7l tub"
Firstly I had to purchase something that would be a suitable size for my daughters lunchbox, I can't simply send in a tub in a carrier bag, this would be missing within minutes!
This tub as mentioned earlier holds 0.7l of whatever it is you wish to "contain". The tub itself is around 4 ½" long, 3 ½ wide and around 2 - 3" deep, this is an ample size for a portion suitable for a 7 year old.
When purchasing I recognised the "Addis" name immediately, and compared to many of the other tubs available alongside this one, this outshone the others by miles.
The container is made from rigid opaque plastic, with the lid being as thick but in a blue colour. When the lid is clicked in place the rim forms a tight seal around the top, unlike some others available I have complete confidence that this tub will not be leaking into my daughters backpack and ruin her vital coursework that can also be translated as random pieces of "crap" that she always seems to be carrying with her!
Although the lid is extremely secure it is also not so tight that she will struggle to take the lid off herself, another vital point when there are around fifty other children trying to get the dinner ladies attention!
There are few limitations on this product, it is dishwasher safe and microwave safe, though it does state that if you wish to keep the original colour of the tub, it is best not to re-heat anything that contains a high amount of fat, sugar or colour.
It is always recommended that you remove the lid before microwaving anything and to never try to re-heat anything in the oven, still in the tub....pretty much self explanatory really!
The tubs are also suitable for use in the fridge, freezer and also have lids produced in such a way that when staked on top of each other, they fit perfectly together thus reducing down the space needed in your cupboards.
There is a large range of tubs available ranging from teabag size (I have one of those as well!), right up to sandwich box size, all boasting the same qualities and seal tight lids.
I purchased this from Wilkinsons, though they are available from most supermarkets, this particular tub being available for 75p.
As I mentioned earlier there was a large selection of lesser branded tubs also available and for a slightly cheaper price, but I have full confidence that the extra few pennies spent will stand me well with this superior piece of equipment.
