  • I honestly prefer the glass containers as they seem to be much easier to clean when it comes to oily food.
    Also I don’t know how many times your can heat plastic over and over again before it then becomes toxic???

  • I love it – the design and quality are great – but it’s so overpriced that I don’t have any. I just fondle it at parties.

  • tupperware is well worth the money and it is designed to last and they actually back up their warranty. my mum had some tupperware from 10 plus years ago that they replaced due to cracking on the lid edged. amazing service and product which is greatly needed in our disposable culture

  • I haven’t bought Tupperware for quite a few years but I’m still using the pieces I have. I think the price drove me away because I can use Sistema for storage, and my glass bowls in the microwave.

  • I like it but did think it’s overpriced

  • I like it but other brands like Sistema are just as good.

  • I have just recently started buying Tupperware and slowly fitting my pantry out with the Modular Mates as it is very expensive. I can already see that they change the colours of the lids so I might have to buy a few extra’s so they will continually match if I need to replace them.

  • I love Tupperware! I’m on a tight budget so am very slowly buying things. I have a friend that does it & following her Tupperware page on Facebook helps as they often have great specials that aren’t catalogue ones. Lifetime warranty, worth the investment when I look at all the cheap stuff I have gone through.

  • Yes I like Tupperware because it lasts. It is quite expensive to buy new but you can pick it up cheap from garage sales, op shops and even on ebay and Gumtree. My parents have some that they got over 35 years ago and still in good condition.

  • Love the older style of Tupperware, with some current ones from the last five years or so.
    Love finding great bargains of old and new ( slightly used )Tupperware that I find in OP Shops and Charity Shops.
    I have my favourites that I use on a regular base with my daughter always asking to borrow a piece of my older Tupperware.
    Bring back some of the older version of Tupperware but with modern colours.
    Yay for Tupperware.

  • I had a Tupperware party in 1964 before i was married. I am still using some of the pieces i bought then! I don’t think other plastics would have lasted so well. So yes, I love Tupperware.

  • Seriously overpriced, bought containers once spent a fortune and they didn’t last 12 months.

  • I love tupperware but i found it a bit pricey and sometimes i wondered if it’s dishwasher safe or bpa free. My tupperware lid has gone out of shape after putting in dishwasher several times and some of my tupperware doesn’t seem to last long. Honestly i would prefer buying pyrex now compare to tupperware

  • I think that their products are great I have purchased previously but I’d have to agree their prices are a bit expensive

  • I love my tupperware but is all that inherited from my mum and it is really old. My cake carrier would have to be 40 years old and it is still so good and I use it if I have to take a cake somewhere. I know it was expensive way back then but boy does it last!! I also have a lettuce container that really does keep the lettuce nice and fresh so I would have to say I love it even though I have not bought any for a long time. I guess you really do get what you pay for and I feel really nostalgic when I use it knowing my mum did the same many years ago.
