How we rate reusable food containers

Our review compares reusable food containers on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which reusable food container they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 1,202 Australians for their feedback on the reusable food container(s) they’ve purchased in the last 12 months. Note: this includes glass or plastic containers, lunch boxes, etc.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their reusable food container brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a reusable food container brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Quality & durability: the reuseable food containers were made of durable material, maintained their shape when heated, and didn’t stain or crack with repeated use.
  • Variety & range: the reusable food container brand offered a wide variety of product options in different sizes, materials, shapes and colours.
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and quantity of the reuseable food container.
  • Design: the reuseable food containers are aesthetically pleasing without compromising on functionality (i.e. could be easily stacked, compact enough for storage and travel, dishwasher-safe, etc.).

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  • Sistema
  • Décor
  • Pyrex
  • IKEA
  • Tupperware
  • Kmart
  • Woolworths
  • Coles
  • Big W
