- I felt the containers were too big for my kids' lunches (the main container has a 4-cup capacity), BUT, they are perfect for an adult sized salad - especially with the little salad dressing container that snaps into the lid! I put some shredded cheese in the mini cup - keeps it from getting soggy with the rest of the salad (I rarely use dressing myself).
- Speaking of cheese....if you use the Glad® To Go Lunch container to store leftover chili (or take it for lunch), not only does it hold a generous serving, but the "dressing" cup keeps the perfect portion of shredded cheese or sour cream at the ready and separated until you have the chili heated (the containers are microwaveable and BPA free).
- AND, my favourite discovery: the mini cups fit in most other GladWare® containers.... so, I was able to use them with the square sandwich sized GladWare® to give the boys carrot & celery sticks, and cauliflower & broccoli plus some dressing for dip - yay! - an easy and convenient start to a healthy lunch! Woot!
