Tupperware

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Can you belive it that I do not own a single bit of tupperware? Now i have the cheap stuff, the gladeware and other random rubbermaid or what not from the dollar store, lol but everyone in my family tells me i need REAL tupperware. that its not the same.

So what is everyones feeling on that?

Bonus for me, I won a $75 GC to tupperware at a party so i did some shopping, I am still waiting on my order.

I also won a 7pc Pitcher and Tumbler set, for $12 lol so i will find out soon enough right?

But..any die hard tupperware fans out there? lol

My late aunt was one. After she died, what she had bought and never used was passed out to family members.

I wouldn't be surprised if we still have some pieces from when I was a toddler - glasses complete with the dog's teeth marks. I used to throw the glass to the dog when I finished what was in the glass.

Loved the parties just to get an orange peeler. They were always getting lost. We also keep Mom's insulin in one while in the fridge.

When we were kids, we had tupperware plates and cups so we wouldn't break the proper stuff, i have a few pieces, but I think my mum still only has tupperware stuff

I don;t have any proper Tupperware, but the cheap stuff suits me fine as I am always leaving my plastics at other's homes. I'm really into Pampered Chef right now and I'm having a party on Saturday.

plastic is plastic...tupperware is tupperware....why spend $40buck on a set of fancy stuff when you could buy the same stuff for $10? I think the gladware stuff is great...i use it all the time. And it's not too expensive. Dollar Tree also has some good stuff

I actually have a teeny Tupperware cup that was from when I was a baby, so its about 46 years old - and the lid is not lost!

I always bought the cheap stuff, but my friend used to sell Tupperware. She was always telling me how much better Tupperware was. One day I was putting a party platter (the cheap kind) in the fridge. Well, the lid popped off and my food went all over the floor. Of course my Tupperware friend was standing right there.

IMO the real cheap dollar store stuff doesn't hold up, but Rubbermaid is great and the "disposable" Glad, etc. stuff that no one really throws out is fine. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty happy with my cottage cheese and sour cream containers...

I like tupperware. Its much better but you do have to be careful you don't lose it. I've been keeping salad in some and it stays very fresh!! I do like the zip lock containers because they seem to be cat proof. I like my tupperware steamer- I've cooked clams in it, and I also have a shredder thing too.

Well i am eagerly doing my dance to see how I like it. I also got myself a special salad container with an air lid thing, i dunno it looked cool and i got it for 70% off, lol.

I was impressed at a show once, there was this one container a rock and serve? that the lady stood on and it was fine. I know i couldnt do that with my cheap stuff, lol

I don't like the rock n serve.. the tops are too hard to put on, though yes they are durable. I own two of them. Hubby sometimes brings them into work with his leftovers.

spaghetti stains, chili stains..anything with tomato sauce stains i think- i did find an easy way to solve that problem though- when you clean it, mix in a little bleach - just a pinch and let it sit in soap and soak for a few minutes....when you get ready to wash it out, you won't have any stains and it'll be nice and clean. Sometimes i save my yogurt and butter containers and use those too.

I think I read that setting plastic dishes in the sun gets rid of stains.

I used to be die hard tupperware. In fact I sold it for quite a while when my kids were small. However, I've changed my ways and opted for the cheaper stuff these days! I especially like the throw away stuff. I still like tupperware... just think it's over priced. At least for my budget!

You know they sell tupperware at Target???
I have lots and lots of Tupperware that I invested in yrs ago. I store most of my dry stuff like flour, rice, noodles, some spices all that kind of stuff properly labeled of course!! It takes up lots less room than all the containers and I think keeps better too. I do have the cheap stuff but why keep in buying that stuff when you could have invested in Tupperware in the 1st place??
post #20 of 33
I forgot to mention I got most of mine at tagsales!!!

I LOVE Tupperware. If I had more money, I would buy more! But I have plenty of basic pieces, and quite a bit of Rubbermaid. And of course the cheap stuff you can throw out if you don't feel like scrubbing it! LOL!

One bonus of Tupperware is that if it ever does break, they replace it. I had the ice cream scoop and the metal part corroded a little (probably from the dishwasher!) I traded it in for a new one at my last party. I have a cracked bowl in my garage now, waiting for someone to invite me to a Tupperware party so I can get it replaced. (Note to self, don't set leftovers outside for the dog and let the bowl freeze!)

When they show that cupboard with everything in it's own Tupperware container...I drool! It is expensive, but some of the colors are so vivid! I love my royal purple mixing bowls!!! One has a chip on the edge and I could trade it in for a new one, but won't because I love the color. It is several years old, and I'm sure they don't have it in purple anymore!
