    Default Tupperware and ants

    We have an ant problem in our kitchen and one more than one occasion the ants have found their way into our boxes of cereals. We were using the Sistema ones (with the blue clips). These ants are teeny and unstoppable. I've had to throw away a heap of sugar because they found their way through the thread of a glass jar.

    My question is, are Tupperware containers (the Modular Mates) sealed tightly enough to stop ants? Has anyone had an issues with ants or other insects getting into tuperware containers?

    There's no way an ant could get in them as long as the lid is on properly. DH puts food in tupperware containers, puts them sideways in his back pack and then rides to work. Never had a leakage yet.

    In the Tupperware containers we have I have never had ants. We had them EVERYWHERE when we moved into our new place, they never got into our Tupperware!

    We use lock & lock and it is fantastic.

    No leakage, No ants & the kids can open it no worries.

    Opening tupperware has always been a problem for my kids.

    This. We've got an ant problem at the moment too, but everything in Tupperware has remained safe. I love my modular mates

    I can guarantee NO ants will get into them. The seal is super tight. My pantry is full of them. I bought some Chinese prawn chips for tea and we didn't eat them. I stuck them into a modular mate and stored it for weeks. Opened them after some time and they were as fresh as the day I first put them in there. I am actually a demonstrator and not one of my clients are unhappy with them. Infact the majority have gone on and bought more.

    Right now there is a special on. just under $400 and you can fill your panrty with them all shapes and colours its about $100 off and if you host a party and get good sales you could get it almost for free and a thank you gift

    Totally worth it. I joined Tupperware to buy the lot discounted which is exactly what i have done
