I searched and not found any post about this. Seem good deal to me, but no idea about quality. Any comment?
The warehouse price 23.99, the online price 29.79$.

I do miss the older coloured lid version. These new non-coloured ones are noticeably worse quality - especially if you put them in the dishwasher.

We got a few years out of the colours ones, but I doubt these one will make it a full year before heading back to Costco based on how badly the lids fit after a few months...

I really hope they have those Flatstack container people back. Really love the design and the bright colours for food prep.

Had the coloured glass containers but they take up so much space.

Had the opposite experience you did. They were god awful - lids don't fit after one cycle through the dishwasher

The lids are bad, the glass containers themselves are okay.

Lids are awful.
Didn't last a year (no dishwasher for the lids) - some of the side flaps/lockdowns started to crack.
Some lids require herculean strength to close

The lid not closing issue....take a razor blade or exacto etc, and trim a small amount of plastic from the 'hook' part of the lid that catches under the glass. When I say a small amount I mean like 1-2 mm. Once done you won't have this issue any longer.

+1 on the dissatisfaction from the other replies regarding the poor quality lids. After a few years of use, pretty much every lid has started to disintegrate or if not totally unusable.

Very wasteful since the glass containers now are barely useful without the lid.

Would not recommend.

Same here, the entire lid is full of cracks and the plastic around hook is totally broken. I'm now using 1 or 2 elastic to hold the lids in place....

I've had this set for 2 years now. I put the lids through my dishwasher on the top rack and I haven't had any issues with cracking, etc. The lids can be difficult to snap on though.

Agree with the herculean strength to close comment.

Highly recommend getting thick deli containers of various sizes. Reusable and they stack up and one lid fits all sizes.

Something like these

On mine the outer edges of the chanel that hold the rubber gasket starts cracking and eventually falls off. As well as the plastic around the hinges of the snap on flaps causing them to no longer be attached. The rubber gasket also weakens and become brittle, resulting in it being torn easily if you take it out and wash it regularly.

My wife hand washes these and the lids are never used in the microwave.

Have had all the same problems listed above.

Switched to Pyrex Snapware brand, available at RCSS, etc. Highly recommend.

I have had these containers for about a year now and have had no problems with them although it was an 18 piece set that I bought and all containers were rectangular. (I do hand wash everything so this may be preserving the longevity of the items.)

These containers have been great for storage of leftovers and the clear containers means I have had way less waste because I see everything whenever I open my fridge and this ensures food gets rotated and consumed before anything gets forgotten and has to be thrown away.

The glass is great because it doesn't absorb odours nor does it leech into the food.

One of the best investments I ever made.

This would have been a great deal - but there are way too many negative reviews to jump on this

Lids are more of a rubbery material, and they've been holding up in the dishwasher quite well.
Do you know what the "premium" in the title of these means?

There's a bunch of anchor hocking on sale at CT right now but it looks like the lids on your link wrap around further. I guess that helps them seal better?

Bought this, one was warped, went back and exchanged. Should have just returned it.

The glass is okay, not as good as the old ones but the lids are absolute trash.
