I’m a sucker for any unique kitchen gadget that is innovative, saves money, and makes life a whole lot easier because let’s be honest, no one wants to make life harder in the kitchen! I recently discovered these amazing silicone stretch lids on Amazon, and after testing them out, I just had to share my review! And no, this is not a sponsored post.

Here’s what I’m obsessing over right now:

Lately, I’ve been looking for ways to save money in the kitchen and one sure way to do that is by finding products that you can reuse again and again.

These silicone stretch lids are a new favorite in our house! If you’re anything like us, never able to find the Tupperware lid and always wanting to save your leftovers, then you’re going to love this innovative product, too.

Here are a few of my favorite things about these silicone stretch lids:

1. You can seal leftover drinks.

I can’t tell you how many drinks I’ve ended up pouring down the drain because my kids don’t finish it during a meal or are too full. So to give these lids the real test right off the bat, I poured some juice in a glass and put the smallest lid on.

After putting the lid on, which fit perfectly, I turned it upside down and shook it around…

Nothing, I mean NOTHING, dripped out of the lid or glass and everything stayed intact. 😱

2. They’ll fit any shape you need.

Have a bunch of random and weird shaped Tupperware? These silicone lids even fit perfectly on my square plastic container that I’ve been missing a lid for! And not only did it fit the shape perfectly, but it stayed on so tight that I could place the glass of juice right on top! I bet you can’t do that with your flimsy plastic-wrapped food. 😏

3. Food doesn’t need to be flat for the lids to work.

I prepped a bunch of cauliflower and zucchini for dinner one night only to realize the bowl was overflowing, but the silicone lids still came through! 😍 The lid was sturdy and stayed on tight and it kept the veggies super crisp and fresh until it was time to make dinner.

4. They hold up in the dishwasher.

Anything that can go in the dishwasher is a winner in my book! And after testing them out for the past couple of weeks, dirtying them up, and throwing them in the dishwasher – I’m excited to share that they’ve been holding up really great! None of them have stained, warped, or ripped. 🙌

Here are some other things that I really love about these silicone lids:

  • They’re completely food safe.
  • Contain no toxic chemicals and are BPA free.
  • There are 6 different sizes to fit everything you need.
  • They are cold and heat safe.
  • They are microwave and dishwasher safe.
  • Help reduce plastic waste in your household.
  • Keeps food fresher for longer.
  • Saves money from buying plastic wrap.
  • Help to reduce food waste in your household.

I did run into one dilemma though…

I had a bowl of chicken marinating. I checked on it after a few hours only to find out that because of the condensation, I couldn’t get the lid back on. The silicone lid became very slippery, and I realized the issue was that the bowl was too wet. So the only options were to either put it in a new bowl with a new silicone lid or wipe the bowl and lid down until I could get it back on.

All of that said though, the lid did end up staying on the bowl of chicken for hours after I wiped it down, and it was just as tight as before. And if you aren’t needing to take the lids on and off of refrigerated food constantly, I say these still work really great!

And they definitely don’t have that problem with dry or room temperature containers! So whether you like to keep snacks fresh before a party or want to cover half of a tomato, the possibilities with these lids are totally endless!

Here’s what a few others have said about these lids:

“These are so stretchy and adhere well to any surface – so they are very easy to use. I’m a big fan of the Glad Press’n Seal but always felt bad about creating waste. These serve the same purpose, except better, and are much more environmentally friendly.” 

– Autumn ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“These lids are nice and stretchy and I love the pull tabs on the sides which really help you get them on things to get the perfect fit. My goal is to really cut down on the use of non-reusable plastic wrap and these are helping get there!”

– Kelly ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

These clever home products are all made of silicone and under $20 on Amazon!

    • Sara

      I hope you love them, Celenorma!

  3. MrsGarfield

    I must be living under a rock! I have never heard of these. I’ve been buying plastic “covers” (the ones that look like shower caps) but these look much better.

    • Sara

      I’ve never used the shower caps, MrsGarfield, but I imagine that these are definitely better! Let me know if you end up giving them a try!

      • Kym

        From someone who hates washing anything plastic or silicone. Always have to hand dry off. I love the shower caps. Dollar tree, $1 for a 10 pack variety size. Good for refrigerators, not so for carrying liquid lunch but good enough for pastas and casseroles not liquidity.

  4. Jen Eagar

    I recently bought these. I love them but in about 2 weeks i have managed to rip a hole in 2 of them. Don’t try to stretch them too far or they rip :(. Hopefully I have learned my lesson ;).

    • Sara

      Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that Jen! Although none of mine have ripped, I definitely found that they work best when they’re not being stretched to their max. Hopefully, no more of yours rip!

  5. Jane

    Just ordered 4 sets of 12 lol! I’ve been wanting to try them and thought some of my friends would too =) Thank you H2S!

    • Sara

      Awesome, Jane! I hope you and your friends love them as much as I do!

  6. Marni

    I’ve been trying to move away from single use plastics and these look great! Thanks for sharing!!

    • Sara

      You’re welcome, Marni! I’m so glad you found this post helpful and I love that these help save on plastic! Let me know how you like them!

  7. Tracy

    I am a huge fan of the shower caps which easily slide over all my dishes, however, after seeing your review, I am willing to give these a shot. I just ordered and can’t wait till they arrive. Who knows, if I really like them, I may order for my mom as a Christmas gift! Thanks.

    • Sara

      What an awesome Christmas gift idea for your mom, Tracy! I hope you love them!

  8. Kay

    I luv the Cover Ups variety size packs at Dollar Tree. Check those out.

  9. Holly

    I have these and I agree that they’re amazing!

  10. patricialavenz-goff

    I have just been putting them in my tupperware or putting a soup plate over the container and putting it in the fridge. Leftovers don’t last long or they go to the dogs in two days if I can’t reinvent them like in a shepherds pie. I can’t tell my brothers it is reinvented leftovers or they won’t eat them. LOL

  11. patricialavenz-goff

    I think I will buy some for my daughter for Christmas.

  12. Ruth

    ALDI has these advertised in their weekly flyer for this week….$4.99 for a set of three. I cannot speak to the quality b/c I have NOT seen them, yet. I hope to go there later today.

    • Sara

      Keep us posted if you do scoop some up, Ruth! Thanks for sharing!

    • Lana

      I bought some this morning and they look great but I have not tried them yet.

  13. Mama Bear

    Let us know if you get a coupon code for these!

  14. Nancy

    I found some of these at a Return Pallet store for $3. Nice to have when you can’t find or don’t have a Lid.

  15. JennG3

    Just bought the 6 pack! I have many “Lock & Lock” brand containers that the locking tabs have snapped off the lids, so these should prove quite useful.

  16. Shannon K

    I’ve had mine for a couple of years and I use them every week. Dishwasher & freezer friendly. Highly recommend. It also makes a great practical gift, housewarming, Christmas, hostess etc

    • Sara

      That’s such a great gift idea, Shannon! Thanks for sharing!

  17. 3pkids

  19. Katesy

    Great review; thank you!

    • Sara

      Thanks so much, Katesy! I’m so glad that you enjoyed this review so much!

    Okay, how are these in homes with pets? I have 3 longhaired cats and one dog and am super paranoid about having clean things. Is the lid a tacky texture, that would hang onto pet hair? I do prefer press n seal or a regular lid, but am interested in being greener. I don’t use microfiber cleaning cloths in the kitchen because it tends to attract pet hair in the wash/dry.

    • Sara

      That’s a great question, Susan! The lids do have a typical texture of silicone, however, quickly rinsing them under water should do the trick if any hair was to stick to it. Hope this helps!

  21. Amelia

    AMAZING!!!! I just bought mine on for $9.99 a set. Bought 2 at that price.

    • Sara

      What a great find, thanks for sharing, Amelia!
