Kmart is no stranger to offering nifty kitchen products and hacks that effortlessly simplify our daily routines, in fact, it does so often.

But the latest discovery that's got people buzzing is as simple as it is brilliant, and it might have slipped under your radar if you weren't paying attention.


TikToker Tara Louise, who regularly shares simple saving tips with her nearly 40,000 followers, recently shared her discovery, hyping it up as a brekkie game changer.

"I've just found this great buy from Kmart," she exclaimed in her video, sharing what looks to be a pretty standard glass food storage container.

"I don't know whether these have been on the shelves for a little while, and I've just missed it, but this is something that's going to make life just that little bit easier."

So, what's all the fuss about? As it happens, it's not just your run-of-the-mill glass container. This one's a multitasking marvel: it's microwave, oven, dishwasher, and freezer safe, as well as being airtight and watertight.

This means you can wave goodbye to the hassle of transferring food between different dishes for cooking and storage and say hello to less clean up. It's convenience at its finest!

"You've got this amazing lid," Tara Louise explained enthusiastically in her TikTok, "so if you do a little morning quiche, little zucchini slice or something for breakfast, you can literally bake it in your container, let it cool down, pop your lid on it, put it in the fridge and grab for your breakfast the next morning."

The glass storage containers come in a variety of sizes, catering to every need from 500ml for smaller portions up to a generous 2.7L for family-sized meals.

Plus, with prices ranging from just $4 to $10, you can score this versatile kitchen product for a steal, making meal prep and storage not only convenient but also easy on the hip pocket.

The comments section exploded with love for this simple time-saving solution.

"Ohhh these look so great!" Exclaimed one follower, with another adding, "We have quite a few and we love them!"

"I use the smaller ones all the time," said someone else, "they are fantastic!"

"Soooo much cheaper than the Tupperware ones," another commenter pointed out, while a second noted that Pyrex has offered similar containers for years, but at a significantly higher price.

Indeed, a 2.6L Pyrex version of this item will set you back around $22. And a comparable 1L version from Tupperware is $23, while the Kmart version offers the same functionality at a fraction of the cost.


"I've been using them for over a year," another commenter shared. "The 1L is perfect for my son and I, freezes well and easy enough to fit in my air fryer."

"What a great idea!"

"I have heaps of them for my food prep... best ever!"

So whether you're prepping meals for the week or simply need a handy way to store leftovers, keep an eye out for these little lifesavers next time you're cruising the Kmart aisles. Your mornings just might get a whole lot easier.
