tupperware carousel by pampered chef

grishnackh Feb 5, 2007 04:40 PM

My mother has this carousel made by Pampered Chef that's really great. It has four different stacks on it, three stacks of squarish plastic tupperware of varying sizes and then a big stack of blue lids.

I looked but didn't find this on the PC website and I'd rather buy it from a store or other reseller. Does anyone have any idea who sells these? Some simple web searches haven't turned up anything.

    I emailed a PC lady, and she sent me this. I don't think this is what you're looking for, but I will provide it just in case I misunderstood your description.

    I also emailed her back to see if there was anything with blue lids because this didn't look like what I thought you were describing.

      Is this it?

        Luv2bake, thanks for e-mailing that lady to ask, that was sweet of you.

        Sarah, that is IT! Thank you so much. I know its not pretty, but that thing is seriously handy. I'm ordering one tonight!

          DON'T, DON'T, DON'T!!!! I had the Smart Spin for a while, and I absolutely hated it! The lids are extremely hard to get on and off... you'll get three corners on and then you won't be able to get the fourth corner on. They are awful! I can't tell you how many times I spilled stuff all over myself trying to get them off too! I don't know if they've changed recently, I got mine probably about a year and a half ago. I threw mine out eventually. I thought if I kept using them that the lids would break in and work right, but they never did. It looks like a brilliant idea, but it's very cheaply made. I hope I caught you in time, so you can at least go look at it in a store.

            ahahaha sorry Katie, but it's too late!

            If this is really as bad as you say, I might not get much use out of it. Luckily it was only $20.35 shipping inclusive, so I'm not risking too much here.

              Dang! Yeah, it's not expensive, but it *was* frustrating! Hopefully, they've improved since I had them!

          The PC lady emailed me again and said there were some at Target but definitely not Pampered Chef. I also checked eBay and the Tupperware site and found nothing. Anyhow, here are some of the things at Target. Maybe one would work.

            Oops - I'm sorry! I see you already found one. Glad someone found it for you.

              Thanks, guys! I was unloading the dishwasher this morning and going through my usual gymnastics trying to put away all the plastic containers without them falling on my head. This looks very useful -- I'll check it out next time I'm at Target.

                Be careful with pampered chef, we bought that crap a couple years ago, and as you know it is not cheap. Already all the finish is coming off our frying pan, we called them and they said "sorry, it only has a two year warranty, after that your on your own". We're not supporting that crap anymore!!

                  I have the exact item you are describing. You can also pick it up at WalMart for 14.95.

                    I bought this, or similar product, perhaps a year or so ago from QVC. I have no problems with it.
