OXO containers and a Giveaway

Recently I was given the opportunity to test out a set of OXO Lock Top Containers. I love OXO products. They’re well made, last forever and work amazingly well. I’m such a big fan, I already have plenty of their gadgets: measuring spoons, rubber spatulas and a peeler just to name a few. So you can understand how excited I was when OXO wanted me to test out their containers.

As the mom of a toddler and a cook who seems to have leftovers on a regular basis, I’m here to tell you, these containers are AWESOME!  Everything OXO promises about them is true. They’re super easy to close, spill proof and durable. I dropped a couple of these containers when they were full and they did not bust open, which means I had less mess to clean up. And when you’re a busy mom running around after a toddler, that’s a pretty big deal.

The 2 ounce containers are perfect for spices or puréed baby food. And the large 50 ounce (yes, I said 50 ounces) container holds an entire dinner’s worth of leftovers. But the ones I found myself using the most were the 4 ounce containers. Not only are they the perfect size for A’s snacks, they fit perfectly into his little hands so he can carry them around at the park and much when he’s hungry. Since I use these little ones so often, the fact that they can go in the dishwasher and come out completely unharmed, makes them my favorite new storage container.

Wanna here something even cooler about these containers? OXO has given me an extra set to giveaway to one lucky reader. You’ll get the same ones I did: 4 mini lock top containers and 1 medium container. I’m sure once you’ve had the chance to try them out, you’ll do what I did and buy another set or two.
