Has anyone seen anything like this - like the tiny rubbermaid storage containers (4oz or less)? I want something not plastic to send for school lunches but don't want to risk glass or pyrex when I'm not there to supervise. I'm hoping to find s/s bowls with lids...

Answering my own post but FINALLY came across something<br><a href="http://www.cooking.com/products/shprodde.asp?SKU=650705" target="_blank">http://www.cooking.com/products/shprodde.asp?SKU=650705</a><br>
unfortunately it's only in a set and I don't need the bigger ieces, but just in case someone else is looking...<br><br>
A-ha - one-cup capacity, set of four. Perfecto! Guess my original googles weren't worded right!<br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FPiece-Stainless-Steel-Prep-Bowls%2Fdp%2FB000BUDDY4%2Fref%3Dsr_1_14%2F002-8883216-1819253%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dhome-garden%26qid%3D1189052080%26sr%3D1-14" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Piece-Stainles...052080&sr=1-14</a>

If you are in need of super small sized ones, Target sells a set of ramekins with covers. They are good for sald dressing, or raisins etc.

Are they stainless steel? I couldn't find any metal ones on their website.

Thanks, I saw these when I did a search. I just wonder if the stores still carry them.

I found some by ??Nissan at Campmor.com last year. They're awesome. Both of my kid bring them in their lunchboxes almost everyday. They were around $15 ea.

I have fondled them a few times over the last year or so! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Most recently maybe a month ago? I think they are a contant item - not one of those seasonal things. They were in the aisle with all the glass canisters, bamboo bowls, etc...NOT over on the wall with all the kitchen utensils.

Thank you! I will look for them the next time I go to Target. I used to use tiny mason jars for snack foods for DS when he was a baby, but now that he wants to hold the bowl I've been using Tupperware. Blech.

Thank you SO MUCH for posting about these!!!! I'll be heading to Target for some, that's for sure! And I can even justify the expenditure since DH has managed to lose nearly all of my tupperware "midgets" and rubbermaid 4oz mini bowls <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> (See honey, it's YOUR fault I had to buy them!)<br><br>
Seriously though, these are exactly what I was hoping for, and the price is fabulous! Now, if only the laptop ,unch cases came in a non-plastic version.....

Hey all - I've been looking into this myself lately for the same reasons as everybody else. I found a great selection and fair prices from <a href="http://www.pearlriver.com" target="_blank">www.pearlriver.com</a> in NYC. My order actually just came today and I'm really happy with my choices. Small containers in stainless steel (including lids) or bamboo and good prices. Hopefully these kinds of things will become more readily available. Cheers! Christa

I bought the ramekins from Target today, and I'm not sure the lids stay on tightly enough for me. One of them doesn't stay on at all. Not totally happy.

Interesting site! Where did you find the stainless and bamboo bowls with lids? I'm not seeing anything.
