**CLOSED**Giveaway- Rubbermaid All-in-One is Number One



I hate folding socks. Laundry as a whole is not my favorite chore, but socks suck, seriously. I usually toss them into a clothes basket in the corner. Consequently, we have a game we play at our house. I’ve dubbed it “Sock Quest”. It consists of running into the basement, grabbing a sock that belongs to you in your left hand and then frantically searching through the mound of socks in the basket with your right hand in the attempt to make a match before the clock runs out and you’re late for work, school, etc. or you just give up and go sockless.

A variation of this game is played in the kitchen. I have limited cupboard space in my house and most food storage containers get tossed in the pits of my cupboard. Should a container be needed, you usually grab a lid and go in search of a mate. Many times a flashlight is needed. I’m also a container hoarder, a trait passed on to me by my grandmother. Containers used for sour cream, margarine, and Won Ton soup get recycled into food storage containers. This particular habit cost me a late-night trip to the grocery store last Christmas Eve. While making my family’s favorite 7-Layer Jell-O, I pulled out what I thought was a container of sour cream only to find I’d opened up a stash of last week’s chili.

That was then, this is now. I’ve finally managed to purge all my old, stained, recycled food storage containers and replaced them with the Rubbermaid All-in-One 20 Piece Set. You get 10 containers with lids. They have the Premier containers with Easy Find Lid System; the lids are simple to seal and remove. I hate trying to snap a lid on a warped storage container which usually happens after multiple dishwashings. These Rubbermaid containers are made of durable clear plastic, so you can always see what’s inside. The Produce Saver pieces include Fresh Vents to allow needed airflow for fruits and veggies. There’s an included Crisp Tray to separate your produce from moisture. My favorite pieces in the collection are the Lock-its; they have a secure seal and features locking tabs on all four sides making it a breeze to seal your container and open it again.

The best part? Everything is stackable for those of us with limited storage and patience. The lids all stack together and you can nest all the containers easily, saving precious cupboard space. Even the Produce Saver Tray snaps to the lid. One lid also fits multiple bases. Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you get less lids. It means that the 3 cup lid will fit the 3 cup container, the 5 cup container and also the 7 cup container. So grabbing a lid means you don’t have to find its exact match, that lid will fit multiple bases.



I’ve been using the containers for a few weeks now and I’m impressed. No stains, even from spaghetti sauce. They come out of the dishwasher looking just as good as the day I opened the box and clutched them to my chest. The Produce Saver kept my sliced strawberries looking fresh and tasting great for a whole week. I’ve been carting salad & dressing to work with the Lock-its container without any leaks in my lunch bag.

The best part, one of you will get to try them too. I have a complete Rubbermaid All-In-One 20 Piece Set to send to one winner.

The Rubbermaid Premier line looks great. I'd store my red sauce items in it as they wouldn't stain the container.

My husband and I take our lunch to work almost every single day, so we'd put all sorts of foods in these! I especially love the produce saver, and I would put cut up oranges in them!

meka foo said...

These are perfect! My husbnd is always complaining about lost lids! I'd love the 5 cup size -- perfect for storing leftovers (ziti, chili, casseroles)...

I like the looks of the produce container. I would store bell peppers in it. Seems like I always use 1/2 a pepper and then the other half gets yucky. Same thing with celery.

Thanks for having the giveaway!

Carol EL said...

Premier because they areStain and odor resistant, shatterproof plastic containers stay clean and clear for life . Leftover pasta will go in them.

I like the lock-its. I would put freshly washed and chopped veggies and fruit.

i would like the Easy Find Lids x-mall 0.5 cup size. it would be great for portioning out "healthy" sizes for my new summer diet

Michele P. said...

I would have to say the Premier. See, my hubby and son love items with lotsa tomato sauce-and are constantly staining my dishes. Since this promotes NO STAINING of the dishes, I have to go with that one!

I'm loving the Produce Savers, especially for strawberries. I swear mine mold in the bag on the drive home. I can't keep them good for ANYTHING.

I actually have a produce saver one, I love it, I use it for left over lettuce when I make sandwiches, and fruit, it keeps my grapes and strawberries from molding better than any of my other plastice ware.

I love the Love the Lock-Its! The rules say I have to tell you what FOOD I'm going to put in it, so I'll say leftover spaghetti sauce. But the truth of the matter is that I'll give it to my son so he can use it for a cache with his geocaching hobby. NOTHING stands up better to the elements than Rubbermaid!

ProjectHope7 said...

The Rubbermaid premier is my favorite ! I have 2 pieces the small square and the 3cups one.. I LOVE THEM!!! I have longed for more of them.. They dont stain, they are clear so you see thru, they go form freezer to table without a problem! I would love to have the whole set in black covers!!

I would like the produce saver. I would put my banana peppers or jalapeno peppers in them when I pick them out of my little garden!

jgos said...

I would love to have the large Produce Saver to put fresh vegetables like broccoli in.

Carrie M said...

I would say the produce savers are my favorite. We get organic produce through a delivery service and I hate it when the berries go bad before I get a chance to use them.

Saving in Style said...

The produce saver is my favorite. We planted strawberries and blueberry bushes for the first time - my son loves them! This would be great for storage!

I think I would find the produce savor to be my favorite. We only shop once a week and by the end of the week, all the fruit has spoiled, so I'd love to save my strawberries, melon, blueberries, etc in them to see if I could strech how long they stayed fresh. thanks for the great giveaway.

I definitely love all of the lock-its by Rubbermaid. I can cart snacks around to all my college classes and not end up with spaghetti sauce or alfredo on my books.

Jennifer said...

My favorite is the Rubbermaid Lock-its. We definitely need this. My mom has slippery fingers or something and is constantly dropping containers out of the fridge and blaming me for the mess! This would be perfect!
