Review: Since my girlfriend and I have started cooking every week, I find myself amassing more and more of her tupperware containers as I use them to transport the leftovers. Some day I will get around to washing the containers that are topping the mountain of dishes in the sink at home, but for now, I am buying all new containers to give to her. Of course I will probably use one or two of these tonight after we are done cooking, but that is neither here nor there. She’ll still come out 3-4 containers ahead of the game in the long run.

It surprised me that the supermarket had their own brand of plastic food containers. I mean, is the container industry that competitive? Do container smuggling rings exist? Why does one brand’s cover locking ability advertise itself as better than the other brand’s when they all only sort of work? Taking the path of least resistance (in cover-lockability and wallet-fillability, I opted to buy the generic containers. I actually have a couple of these laying around the house (also atop the mountain of dishes in the sink) and I have never had trouble with the covers. Of course, whenever transporting food in these quasi-disposable containers, I always wrap the potential mess in a plastic bag just to be on the safe side. There hasn’t been an accident yet, and a pack of five containers for the price of what one so-called permanent container whose brand has given rise to bizarre subcultures of women who like to throw parties around them and “burp” rubbery plastic covers costs is okay by me.

Obviously my mother’s tupperware parties where I had to be the Vanna White of freshness by taking each new invention around to a group of women are still traumatizing me.
