What are the best kitchen Tupperware to use?

Im not sure which tupperware to buy due to quality ,so i am a bit confused when it comes to lunch boxes. I usually place my lunch and salads in normal bowls and stash it away in the refrigerator and it goes off. I am here to find out which tupperware are the best.

The lettuce keeper and the celery keeper are excellent products that really keep these items fresher for much longer than other storage methods. Great for singles like me or for 2 person households.

I use round bowls with a lid that has a vent you can open or close. This is meant to be used to "steam" things in the microwave, but they work great to store food that needs to "breathe"

I've used the lettuce keeper for years. My brother threw out my parents' (he thought it was unsanitary). I went to the local thrift shop and bought them another one because my father lamented that the lettuce wasn't keeping as long. I love my celery keeper as well.

My favorite is the 1/2 gallon ice cream keeper. No more ice crystals on my ice cream.

Just went to the tupperware site. They don't list either a lettuce keeper or a celery keeper. guess they don't offer them anymore. Disapointed, sigh...

If it doesn't stack or going into the dishwasher, pass it by. Frankly I'm all tuppered out.

The only problem with my beloved Lock'nLock storage is that they do not stack. But, they are the best thing I ever used.

I buy disposable Rubbermaid "Takealongs" to take things that will be left. With the LnL, I have them chained to my waist.

When I sold Tupperware several years ago, one of the first things they taught us is that you don't loan Tupperware because you'll never get it back!
