[Canadian Tire] Anchor Glass 4 Cup Food Storage Container 6 pc set - $4.99

Was in Canadian Tire today and noticed these Anchor glass food storage containers. They are the 4 cup size (medium) and come in a pack of 3 containers

I am aware the lids are prone to cracking, however there's a sticker on these boasting upgraded lids that are 30% stronger
The plastic does seem a bit thicker and sturdier, willing to give them a try for $4.99


They also had the 24 pc set for $19.99. This set goes on sale fairly often. Not sure if they are the upgraded lids though

Why it is showing zero stock in all 10 stores near me Thinking Face already sold out or system fault.

Waste of $$..lids crack after a while and cost too much to replace.

I found that these lids crack over time if you normally clean them in the dishwasher, but I've been washing mine by hand for a long time now and haven't had any problems.

That's strange, there were tons in-store and online at the time of posting.

The 24pc set also shows 0 inventory

It could be a system error, doubt the entire GTA's inventory sold out in the span of an hour

I wouldn't buy them again since lids cracked on mine. But I guess at that price, it might be ok to give them a try (I probably didn't have the "upgraded ones").

As a side note, know that they are heavier than other brands (like pirex). Since I often travel by bike, it matters a little bit to me.

edit: tons of 1-star reviews about the crappy lids

Plenty of stock of both the 6 pc and 24pc sets at my store (in Montreal) and surroundings.
I would have probably picked some up if I hadn't recently restocked, and purchased some lock&lock sets from amazon. These are cheaper and glass, but the lock&locks have proven to be pretty reliable and leak proof (perfect for lunches) at least for my family.

Online stock is back now, seems like it was a bug

On a side note, the new lids seem to be holding up well. Only time will tell, but you can definitely feel a difference in thickness between the old lids and new lids
