Today I'm giving a big thumbs-up to the Rubbermaid® Brilliance 22-piece Food Storage Container Set.

I got this set awhile ago at Bed Bath & Beyond for $39, which, if you've researched storage containers lately, is a pretty great deal for well-reviewed sets.

So, I've been using it for some time now, and I really love it. As advertised, it goes right from perfect, sealed, doesn't-leak storage in the fridge to perfect, ventilated, doesn't-splatter containment in the microwave. And, as promised, it remains odor-free and stain-free.

I haven't run it through the dishwasher, because my old dishwasher tends to leave residue on containers and cooking utensils, so I hand-wash that stuff. It is, however, dishwasher safe.

I'm super chuffed about the little microwave vents. Apparently those have been around for years, as I was informed by a friend to whom I was raving about them, lol, but I haven't bought containers in like 15 years, so I had NO IDEA about all the cool advancements in container technology! Thank you, SCIENCE.

Anyway! Give us your thumbs-up or thumbs-down in comments!
