  • 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!



  • While I agree that Tupperware is quite expensive, it is good quality, and does have a lifetime replacement guarantee.

    However, my biggest complaint is that sometimes a much loved piece of Tupperware requires replacement, but that item is no longer produced. Although they do replace the item with something similar as much as possible, it doesn’t always work for things that only require a lid that is no longer available for example, or are part of a set, especially hostess prizes for hosting a party.



  • I have always like Tupperware however over the decades it has become very expensive, I don’t buy it now and the Tupperware I have has lasted me for ever!



  • My Grandma’s old gear is still going strong but the new gear didn’t last unfortunately.



  • Real tupperware is pricey but well worth it!
