How to arrange your Tupperware Modular mates to have same height?

All modular mates container is label with number at the bottom base of the container, for you to identify the model of the container base. If you wish to arrange all your modular mates container tidy to have same height, you can use the container number as a reference.

For example,

1 set of Oval 4 container height = 1 set of oval 3 container + 1 set of oval 1 container. ( oval 4 = oval 3 + oval 1 ) = ( 4 = 3 + 1 )

or 

1 set of Oval 4 container height = 2 set of oval 2 container stack together ( oval 4 = oval 2 + oval 2 ) = ( 4 = 2 + 2 )

or 

1 set of Oval 4 container height = 4 set of oval 1 container stack together ( oval 4 = oval 1 + oval 1 + oval 1 + oval 1 ) = ( 4 = 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 )

You get the idea? 4 = 3 + 1 / 4 = 2 + 2 / 4 = 1 + 1 + 2 ... a lot of combination possibility you can arrange, but this numbering reference only works provided you stack within the same shape of the containers.

There are also folks claim that their modular mates container unable to keep the food air tight. But in fact, a lot of people do not know how to close the modular mates seal correctly.

how to open and close modular mates seal

Most modular mates container seal is come with a tab. To open the seal correctly, you shall pull the tab up a bit, then pull the different corner of the lids in order to open up the lids.

This is the best way to open up the modular mate lids and protect your lid for long lasting use.

A lot of people love to just pull out the lid directly from the tab in single direction, but in long run, the lid easy to crack, and you will need to do replacement of lid, which is wasting of your time. 

To close the lid correctly, first you can observe that each modular mate lid is come with an extended edge downward. After you had closed your lid, you will need to ensure that the edge is fit correctly at the container edge. 

Some people just simply closed the lids, but without aware of the lid extended edge is not yet fit into the edge of the container.

To close the modular mates lid correctly, just put the container base on table, then put your lid on top of the container base, then press the lid to fit into the container edge along the lid shape with 2 hand thumb

( left thumb press along edge in clockwise direction, right thumb press along edge in anti- clockwise direction )  ( add image to explain )
