Rubbermaid glass "Press to Seal" tupperware-like storage, with "easy-find lids" - 5.5 cups, 1.3 L size. Glass base, plastic lid.

Yes, lid is not oven safe, and glass container says No Broiler/No Stovetop, but we were not using the product for any of these functions. We simply put hot food in the container and laid the lid on top

Our Rubbermaid Glass "With Easy Finds" lids tupperware-like food storage container exploded suddenly in our kitchen after just putting hot food into this "heat safe" 5.5 cups/1.3 liter storage container. Just minutes after adding a hot food to the container, it exploded into tiny chards of glass, causing hours of cleanup but more importantly, scaring the CRAP out of all of us who were in the kitchen when it happened, and fortunately no one was hurt.

I was very disappointed as I had just purchased these lovely-looking glass tupperware storage containers during a Black Friday sales at Bed Bath and Beyond, and couldn't wait to use them.

The result was, as mentioned above, a gazillion chards of small glass which flew violently into every knook and cranny of our kitchen (counters, lower cabinetry, floors, under kitchen island, under appliances, etc.), a very scared group of people in my kitchen, who were shocked by the explosion, and gratitude that someone had not been injured or near the product when it exploded.

This product needs to have better labeling. As far as I'm concerned, NOTHING HOT should go into these conntainers at all.

My result is that I have to make sure my kids only use the remaining pieces we purchased for cold food storage only, and to NOT HEAT THEM UP under any circumstances, out of fear that this will happen again.

Something should be done to rectify this problem/defect.

I have other sizes of the product - obviously the one that exploded is no longer in existence (disposed of after hours of labor finding all the glass chards). I will contact the manufacture once I know who it is. I assume it is Rubbermaid.
