Before I discovered Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE products, I had to open containers just to see what was in there. Lids were a pain to open. Containers would leak in my lunch bag or the fridge and stacking them was awkward because most of my collection was mismatched. It got to the point I didn’t bring my lunch to work anymore because I didn’t want anyone to see my stained, crappy looking containers. Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE came along just in time. After using them for a few weeks, I think they are quite possibly the best containers I’ve ever had. Here’s why:
- Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE containers are crystal clear and made of stain resistant material. You can even see through the lid! With 360-degree clarity, you never have to wonder what’s inside.
- I absolutely love the lids. They are designed to be airtight and leak-proof. They also come with these nifty latches that are easy to open and close. Even for arthritis sufferers like me! The latches also double as vents for splatter-resistant microwaving.
- Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE comes in five sizes and is also available in multi-piece sets that stack perfectly in the fridge!
- You ever heard of BPA? Apparently, it’s a chemical that’s been used in the manufacturing of certain plastics since the 60s… There’s been some research that’s shown BPA can seep into food and beverages especially when the plastic is heated in the microwave or dishwasher. Although low levels of exposure are considered safe by the FDA, there are still concerns of possible health effects on the brain, fetuses, infants, and children. It’s also been linked to high blood pressure. I don’t know about you but the idea of chemicals seeping into my food is very unappealing. Thankfully, Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE is made of heat resistant BPA free materials so no worries here!
Now that I have a nice new set of containers, I don’t mind bringing my lunch to work. I’ve been eating healthier and saving money. Snacking on fresh raw vegetables and fruits throughout the day keeps my hunger at bay and helps me be less hungry in the evenings when I’m more likely to eat things I shouldn’t. I’ve even lost a few pounds and I’m loving it!
