  • I like it but other brands like Sistema are just as good.

  • I have just recently started buying Tupperware and slowly fitting my pantry out with the Modular Mates as it is very expensive. I can already see that they change the colours of the lids so I might have to buy a few extra’s so they will continually match if I need to replace them.

  • I love Tupperware! I’m on a tight budget so am very slowly buying things. I have a friend that does it & following her Tupperware page on Facebook helps as they often have great specials that aren’t catalogue ones. Lifetime warranty, worth the investment when I look at all the cheap stuff I have gone through.

  • Yes I like Tupperware because it lasts. It is quite expensive to buy new but you can pick it up cheap from garage sales, op shops and even on ebay and Gumtree. My parents have some that they got over 35 years ago and still in good condition.

  • Love the older style of Tupperware, with some current ones from the last five years or so.
    Love finding great bargains of old and new ( slightly used )Tupperware that I find in OP Shops and Charity Shops.
    I have my favourites that I use on a regular base with my daughter always asking to borrow a piece of my older Tupperware.
    Bring back some of the older version of Tupperware but with modern colours.
    Yay for Tupperware.

  • I had a Tupperware party in 1964 before i was married. I am still using some of the pieces i bought then! I don’t think other plastics would have lasted so well. So yes, I love Tupperware.

  • Seriously overpriced, bought containers once spent a fortune and they didn’t last 12 months.

  • I love tupperware but i found it a bit pricey and sometimes i wondered if it’s dishwasher safe or bpa free. My tupperware lid has gone out of shape after putting in dishwasher several times and some of my tupperware doesn’t seem to last long. Honestly i would prefer buying pyrex now compare to tupperware

  • I think that their products are great I have purchased previously but I’d have to agree their prices are a bit expensive

  • I love my tupperware but is all that inherited from my mum and it is really old. My cake carrier would have to be 40 years old and it is still so good and I use it if I have to take a cake somewhere. I know it was expensive way back then but boy does it last!! I also have a lettuce container that really does keep the lettuce nice and fresh so I would have to say I love it even though I have not bought any for a long time. I guess you really do get what you pay for and I feel really nostalgic when I use it knowing my mum did the same many years ago.

  • It’s great. It’s pricey, but outlasts most other products on the market. I try and buy from the specials section of the catalogue if I ever go to a party. My favourite and most used piece is my microwave pasta cooker. It allows you to have full use stove whilst making pasta and not have to worry about overcooking your pasta – it comes out great every time.

  • Cheap Tupperware can often be found on Buy, Swap and Sell sites.

  • A couple of years ago I bought a small set on Ebay all the way from Malaysia and they are genuine but much cheaper. Also now and then you will find some new and vintage ones from op shops as well. I think if they reduce their prices a bit , they will have more buyers as they are still only plastic in my opinion. However , if cost is not a problem and quality is your priorty then go for it as long as there are reps around , you will always get an exchange or refund if not satisfied.

  • I ended up with alot of old Tupperware when my Mum passed away. Good sizes & great for storage of baked goods and breakfast cereals. I find with Tupperware there is no leakage with the lids but because of it’s age (40 years old) most lids have cracked or split. Tupperware has a life time warranty but often finding a dealer to replace just the lids can be a problem as they wait for a party to add them to their order. Then they seem to forget about you and you are forever chasing them up.

  • It is expensive but I do like it and have some favourite pieces. As a baker – I love the cake carrier – the best!
