I can't wait until I can get a lot of Modular Mates. My pantry is so cluttered and I hate it.
Yep - mine is the Counterparts. It's fine, actually, aside from a chip on the top rim which is purely cosmetic. The lid works the same as the the lids on the Classic Pitchers (the push button); it's the push-button inserts for my 2 pitchers that got "et" by the garbage disposal. The pitchers are still usable, it's just a pain to get the lid assembly to fit together as a result.

I was thinking about trying one of the long ovals for spaghetti - I'll check one of the ones I already got, against the spaghetti I stuck in the freezer the other day, to make sure it'll fit lengthwise. The PDF that I linked to suggests the super oval 1 will hold a half pound, and the super oval 4 would hold 5 pounds.
