Is Snapware Really Airtight?
The first thing we were compelled to test is if the Snapware product was indeed airtight. Not a drop of water entered the container when we submerged it all day containing glass stones and napkins. Since keeping air out is the most important condition when storing food, we were happy to see that the Snapware passed this test.
Snapware Pasta Container
This one is called the 12.1 Cup Plastic Pasta Container. Although it would work great for a few packages of spaghetti, we quite frankly don’t see the point since spaghetti is already dried out and keeps just fine in the box that it was sold in even if it is opened. So, we thought that this container would work great as a handy snack container. And it was! With the flu season being one of the worst ever, we are always looking for ways to stay healthy. Licking your fingers and then reaching into a bag of potato chips is a pretty good way to spread germs around the group. We put our snacks in this handy container in the office and since the container is rather deep and narrow, we suggested everyone pour their handful from the container. It worked great and looked attractive on the countertop because the jar is designed to fit nicely along the wall with a flat side on the back of the container.

Does Snapware keep food fresher?
We compared several different snacks in the container, putting half the snack in the container and leaving the other half in the bag with the top folded over and clipped. The food contained in the Snapware plastic container stayed consistently fresher tasting than that which was left in the bag. This was also true for cereal. Having a few of these containers on your countertop filled with different cereals can make breakfast a snap for families with multiple children. Every item we tried remained crisper if put into the Snapware pasta container.
