Divided Keeper is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 88.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cookies! I bake a lot during the holidays and these containers are perfect for storing all the sweets that can't be stacked. I own about five of them and they are used quite often. I have put them in the freezer as well with no issues which is why I am perplexed by the other comments about the lids not fitting. I have not experienced that problem. My lids all fit perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lids don't fit These are a very nice size for what I needed--to store single layers of trout in the freezer, asparagus, etc. However the lids do not fit after running them through the dishwasher once--top rack. They are warped and too small for the containers now. The description claims the containers are top rack dishwasher safe which is why I bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sandwiches and a veggie/fruit! Excellent replacement for a sandwich baggie! Very durable, easy to clean, and the divider moves easily and helps keep your veggie/fruit choice away from the sandwich. I haven't tried anything too watery to see if it spreads under the divider, but so far, great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soft lids get too soft over time I got these four years ago because they have the easiest lids to open for a preschooler. The soft lid is easy for a young child to pry open. Other containers (snapping, screwing, or simply squeezing on) were too hard for her. HOWEVER, four years on, the lids are now TOO soft. I often put fruit in these containers, which very slightly ferment as they warm towards lunchtime. This fermenting pops open the lids and fruit juice (which has drained a bit from the now-warm fruit) spills all over. I circumvent this problem with a rubber band around the container. With another preschooler stepping up, though, I'm not sure how he will handle the rubber band, so I am looking for other solutions for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding for Use in RVs I love all the rectangular containers in this line of storage containers. The shapes fit snugly and stack conveniently in our small RV-sized refrigerator and cabinets. The lids seal so well that food stays fresh, and even if it tips over or falls out of a cabinet or fridge while RV is moving, the lid won't come off and contents will not spill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lush storage I love these containers. I was looking for storage for my Lush bath products. They needed to be completely clear and air tight. These containers are perfect. I like that they have all different sizes and they fit perfectly in my drawers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from handy little containers I first purchased these little containers several years ago. They were great then for keeping my toddlers snacks and still work great now for my grown ten year olds school lunch snacks. I love the easy to open lids and the fact that they are a safe plastic to use for my family. I will definitely buy more in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!! Amazing!! These things are PERFECT for my 3 kiddos' lunches. The plastic is thick & sturdy with just enough flexibility that they seem like they will stand up to a lot of repeat use. The lids fit flawlessly & are easy for my children to take off & put back on -- AND the lids stay sealed tightly even with typical kiddo lunch bag abuse. I use them in conjunction with the 4 oz. Small Food Keeper (same product line) and between the movable divider and the 4 oz. container (which can also easily fit INSIDE the Divided Keeper!) I am able to configure them in a multitude of arrangements AND have a leak-proof compartment within compartment. It is so nice to finally be able to QUICKLY & EASILY assemble school lunches and keep everything separate as needed -- my kiddos love taking some crackers, lunch meat & cheese slices cut into fourths, some fresh fruit, and a small treat for dessert -- however it used to be such a pain either having a bunch of separate containers or wrapping things in plastic wrap or foil to make sure the strawberries didn't stain the turkey red or make the crackers soggy, for example. Plus these little containers hold a lot! (or at least plenty for what my kids typically eat at school) -- I can fit 2 slices of lunch meat & 1-2 slices of cheese (cut into fourths -- which I put side-by-side in the 4 oz. keeper), 2-3 strawberries and a small handful of grapes (which I tuck in alongside the 4 oz. keeper on one half of the Divided Keeper), about 8 crackers, AND a small handful of Nutter Butter Bites. Yet it is such a slim profile!! They take up minimal space in my cabinets when not in use, and I can neatly & easily stack half a dozen of them in a small section of my fridge and have 2 days' worth of lunches for 3 kiddos on standby without sacrificing very much space in my rather small refrigerator. (I actually purchased a wire mesh pantry organizer basket from Container Store for $17.99 and it is the perfect size to store our 6 Divided Keepers in the fridge lined up vertically and the kiddos' water bottles right beside.) I used my label maker to label each kids' name on two of the containers -- now they just have to grab one box which has ALL of their food in it, water bottle, and ice pack & they are on their way... and I can make lunches every other night now instead of every night. I never thought I'd be this excited about food containers, but as a single full-time working mama of a 9-year-old and a pair of 8-year-old twins, these products have made one area of my life that was a constant uphill battle practically a breeze! I feel the urge to tell everyone I know about these containers!! lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from small food keepers I got a couple for my child's lunch box. They keep the food from spilling, and they are much easier for her to open than some of the others I've tried. We will get more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was waiting for!!!!!! I purchased a couple of these for my Holiday Baking. I do not like to stack certain candies and other desserts because they stick together. These containers work great. In addition they stack perfectly when I am storing the baked goods!! They keep anything I have stored in them fresh, also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for storing ice cream I make all my own ice cream and use these containers exclusively. I find that 1-quart containers are too tight and don't allow for expansion in the freezer. These work great, no matter what I add to the base. They fit in the freezer perfectly and efficiently, and I love the handle - it allows me to grab the container without freezing my hand - perfect!

Community Q&A

do these nest?

can I nest the same size together? my favorite ones nest but are round and take up more room in the fridge.
Asked by: sarahlala
No, mine do not stack one inside the other without lids. They take up space when being stored empty. The plus to the square in the fridge, is they nestle uptight to each container.

Are these BPA-free?

I recently purchased two of these containers assuming Container Store only carries BPA-free food storage products. A few days later, I noticed all the Japanese fine-print on the bottom of each container and am concerned now that maybe they aren’t BPA-free.
Asked by: SavingSpace
I believe they are BPA-free, but I no longer have the packaging that might have stated that.

Do you offer a size that is in between the 16 oz and 1.5 qt? I need something in-between -- approx 1 qt. 16 oz is too small and 1.5 qt is too big

Asked by: Nate1
We don't offer a size in between the measurements mentioned for this particular product, but we do offer it in the Oblong Tellfresh realseal containers, sku # 10058898 with a range starting from 16.9 oz to 4.2 qt. The 30.4 oz would be the closest between the measurements you listed.

Is this the same container I bought before?

I bought nine containers from you before and I want to buy several more but I can't tell if these are the same ones. On the lid, they say "Keeper Flexible Sealware" and on the bottom of the containers there is Japanese writing and the words "Lustro Ware" (Stock B-834). Are these the same ones I bought before?
Asked by: Deed
This is same product we’ve carried for a long time...there have been updates to some of the labeling on the bottom but no changes to the product itself.

Are these stackable?

Asked by: LindseyE
The Handled Keeper & Spoon has a flat top & bottom so it can be stacked. The bottom is slightly smaller than the top so when stacked, it is not a tight fit; however, the top does have a lip to assist in stacking.
