World Kitchen (a leading kitchenware company and manufacturer of Corelle dinnerware) sent two representatives, Mei Fern and Cindy, to pay me a house visit recently. This visit was specifically arranged to identify my kitchen needs, help me to re-organise my kitchen, and introduce to me the range of SNAPWARE products which included Airtight Modular range, Eco One-Touch range, Airtight Plastic Canisters and Airtight Vacuum range.
On the day of the visit, I cooked my son’s favourite Italian pasta soup. I used the Airtight Modular containers to store my pre-cooked macaroni and shredded chicken. I found that these containers were easy to open and close due to their four-lock latch systems. After preparing the soup base, I added the precooked ingredients and reheated it for another five minutes. Then, I transferred the pasta soup to an ECO one-touch round glass vessel as recommended by Cindy. The Pyrex glass vessel is fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven and microwave safe. However, I was reminded by the representative not to heat it over gas stoves. It’s my first time using a glass vessel with a one-touch vacuum seal system. I was really amazed watching how Cindy demonstrated the lid is 100% airtight and leak-proof. While washing up, I was wondering how to remove the rubber gasket from the lid of the SNAPWARE plastic containers so that I can clean the food particles that were trapped inside in. I asked Cindy for help and she just did it with her fingers!! That’s real easy! Fixing it back is not a problem too!

Subsequent to this special visit, I have received a complimentary set of SNAPWARE products from World Kitchen. I have tried them out and like to share with you my personal experience as below:
AIRTIGHT MODULAR RANGE
I find that both mini nesting bowls and mini square bowls are great for storing small amount of nuts and seeds. The mini nesting bowl is also good for storing my leftover chopped tomatoes as it is 100% leak proof. I used the medium rectangular container for keeping my homemade scones, homemade biscotti, dried scallops and raw chicken breasts in the freezer. When I checked them out again the next day, I could hardly find any ice crystals formed inside the containers that were used for scones and dried scallops. As for the chicken breasts, there was only a tiny bit. I stored some French beans and fresh button mushrooms in the airtight modular containers. These vegetables stayed fresh even after a few days. For the flip slim rectangle container (3.6L), it can fit perfectly 2 boxes of muesli. For small family like mine, this size is considered too large for keeping breakfast muesli but will be good for keeping rice.
(Tips: To prolong the freshness of your vegetables, you can place a layer of kitchen towel on top before securing the lid. This helps to absorb any moisture that is trapped when open and close the container. If the kitchen towel becomes wet, just replace it with a new one. ).
ECO ONE-TOUCH RANGE
I placed my marinated honey balsamic chicken drumsticks in the ECO one-touch square 1.5L glass vessel. I’m glad that this glass vessel is stain-proof, odor and heat resistant. It can fit in 8 small drummets well. Although this vessel is oven-safe, I didn’t use it to bake the drumsticks. The height of this glass vessel is way too deep to be used as a baking tray. The heat can’t reach the drummets easily. I hope SNAPWARE will launch a new glass vessel with shallow base and wider width in this ECO one touch range to better cater to baking usages.
AIRTIGHT CANISTERS RANGE
In the square airtight canister range, 1.04L is considered the smallest size. I used them to keep roasted nuts and dried mushrooms. These canisters are great for parents with small kids as they are light weight and come with an ergonomic built-in handle for easy grip. The parent can be anxiety-free if their toddler accidentally drops this container on the floor. As for the nuts, I didn’t have enough to fill up the canister but my son could still put his little hand inside to reach them.
AIRTIGHT VACUUM RANGE
I couldn’t get any products from this range due to unavailability of the stocks.
(Note: I didn’t test out all of the above-mentioned products on dishwasher and microwave as I don’t own these electrical appliances.)
What impressed me most about SNAPWARE products will be its high quality material which is made from BPA-free plastics and borosilicate glass. Apart from its 100% airtight and leak proof, I’m also fond of its space-saving nesting design (to maximizes storage space) and its colour coded lid system (to categorize food items for easy retrieval). With so many interesting features* about SNAPWARE, I think it’s a great choice for those who are looking for a smart and stylish kitchen storage solution that is made from high quality material with reasonable prices (S$3.90 – S$29.90), and of course, lifetime warranty (subject to terms and conditions mentioned in warranty.snapware.com).
* – Some features of SNAPWARE are only available to selected product range only.
For all readers in Singapore, the SNAPWARE range is now available in Tangs, Metro, OG and Mustafa. For more information on SNAPWARE, please refer to World Kitchen Asia.
