Food is one of the most expensive ongoing costs for families. So it makes sense that you want to store it correctly to ensure it stays fresher for longer.
Most households will have a preferred brand of container storage. It might be because they stack well, easy for the kids to open or because they were on special when purchased. There are many reasons that make families opt for one brand over the others.

Current containers – what we use now
Sistema has always been my brand of choice. They have always held up to our expectations and given how cheap they are, they have lasted a long time. We use the containers for the kid’s sandwiches, cut up fruit, leftovers and storing other fresh food. So when Sistema reached out and asked if we wanted to put the new Sistema Brilliance containers to the test, I was pretty keen! We have been using them for a few weeks now. See what we think below.
Sistema Brilliance Containers Review
The new Sistema Brilliance containers make a few claims that grabbed my attention and interest. Leak-proof, stain resistant, shatter resistant, splatter free microwaving, dishwasher safe, freezer safe and airtight.
- 100% leak-proof – when my husband takes saucy leftovers for lunch I always worry that it will leak through his bag. We tested the leak-proof statement and am pleased to report that no leaks were found with the new containers.
- Airtight – the seal is really tight which keeps foods fresher for longer and assists with the leak-proof guarantee.
- Splatter free microwaving – these containers are great for microwaving. Not only are they safe to use, they also have a cool feature that allows steam release through the vents hidden underneath the clips. This allows the steam to release while microwaving and allowing the lid to stay in place, ultimately preventing splatter.
- Dishwasher safe – nothing lasts long in my house if it’s not dishwasher safe. This is an essential here.
- Modular stacking – the Sistema Brilliance containers stack really well which makes storage easy. It also helps to keep the fridge or container drawer/cupboard organised.
- Shatter resistant – My kids have taken these to school with their salad and fruit. We all know how rough kids can be and these have survived them, me dropping them and other general use.
- Odour resistant – there is nothing worse than being able to smell odours from previous meals when storing fresh food. We have not had this issue with these containers yet, time will tell for sure though after repeated use.
- Available in 3 sizes – 380ml, 920ml and 2L. Each of these sizes has been very useful in storing freshly cut up fruit and vegetables, leftovers and of course preparing meals in advance so they just have to be reheated.
There is only one thing that I don’t love about the Sistema Brilliance containers – the lids don’t stack as well in the dishwasher as their other lids do. This is such a small thing and something that does not put me off buying or using the new Sistema Brilliance but may be helpful for others considering the product.
Fresh food plays a big part in our diet. Vegetables, salads and fruit – particularly strawberries, watermelon and apples at the moment. We are buying bulk punnets (supporting the strawberries farmers) and cutting them up so the kids can make fresh fruit salad as they want it. These containers have kept the fruit so much crispier and fresher than our other containers. Not only do the Sistema Brilliance look good, the airtight seal works really well!
