ALDI madness! Shoppers are going crazy over latest freezer find

The containers, priced at just $2.33 each, have a section where you can write what is inside each container.

While the affordable buy was a must-have to some customers, some of those who purchased the storage solution when they were initially released a few years back were not convinced of it’s usefulness.

“I had them last year. I won’t recommend you getting them. No good,” one shopper wrote, adding they felt the lids changed shape after a few years of usage.

Another customer wrote the containers were not microwavable so it “defeats the purpose".

However, others recommended the product.

“I’ve had mine for over a year mainly to freeze stuff and have found them fine I take the lid off and use a microwave cover anyways, so lids are no issue,” one user wrote.

Another added: “I’ve had mine for ages, and they are still fine. I still recommend them.”

These freezer containers are BPA free and are freezer and dishwasher safe, despite shoppers being mixed on how safe they would be going into a microwave.
