Egg Stay Fresh Container
Feels durable. Lid a bit tight but secure.
I purchased two of these to hold the eggs I get from a local farm. After reading the reviews, I decided I'd follow the one person's advice and paint over the labels rather than take them off and have goo left. The containers feel durable but not heavy duty. The lid is a bit tight, so you need to use both hands to take it off, but at least you know the eggs won't fall out. The holes seem big enough to house large eggs. I painted over the label and now I have a decorative top. I plan to hand wash them, as I don't know how the painted label will hold up in the dishwasher. I would think a white board label would work, too, to cover the top, if you want to be able to write on it.

The Label is PERMANENT!
I was so excited about my purchase until I tried to remove the label. It wouldn't come off with hot water, so I allowed it to soak in a plastic tub of water while I was gone for the week. Little tiny pieces of the label came off leaving behind a gummy adhesive that still wouldn't come off. So I resorted to my Jiffy Steamer that I use for my clothes. What a mess! After I removed the paper part of the label I had all of this adhesive left which I attacked with Goof Off. Most of the adhesive came off, but still left a film on the lid. It is now ruined and I will not use it. Total waste of money! Until the manufacturer changes how the label is applied, I would NEVER recommend purchasing this item. Be warned.

TIP ON GETTING FUSSY LABEL OFF
I'm not sure how much I like this product as I just bought it today but agree with all the reviewers that this label was annoying to get off. I signed up here just to give my tip of how to get it off because it was annoying and though others could benefit from this and save some time. I tried peeling, then washing it off with soap but it left a sticky residue. For some reason I tried cooking oil (avocado oil but I'm sure any oil would work) and I just rubbed it on the sticky part then rinsed with water and it got rid came off. Surprisingly it looked as good as new once I wiped it down after washing all the oil off with soap.

I ordered two and love the clear design, I knew from other reviews not to try to remove the label. So I painted it with chalk board paint and I write the date purchased on the lid. Now I can keep up with the purchase dates.
