Broken Tupperware No response from Tupperware
On June 15th I returned a broken product with a lifetime guarantee, I had to pay postage to return it. I am still waiting for a reply. I have a tracking number through the post office to prove it has been returned. Tupperware don't answer their phone, don't respond to numerous emails and in the meantime I am in limbo. Tupperware isn't what it used to be, admittedly in Melbourne we have Stage 4 Lockdown at the moment, but I find it amusing that Tupperware can still take orders for new products and post them out to customers, but can't find the time to respond and fix problems from their customers that have supported them for over 40 years. I will certainly be reassessing whether I ever purchase products in the future. Extremely disappointed.
I can live without it, now and forever!
I am so dissapointed in trying to claim some broken Tupperware, but from now on I will never use their products again. I have been waiting over two months for these replacements and now they don't respond with emails via their customer (non) service.
I have never claimed before and now won't buy anything from Tupperware again.
Lifetime warranty isn't
When you try to claim on the lifetime warranty you will need to pay significantly more for postage than it actually costs. I suspect Tupperware is using the "Postage" charges to cover the cost of the replacement parts. Very disappointing considering my Mother used Tupperware all her life and so far I have as well. I will be looking elsewhere when I next need to replace my storage containers.
Total rip off
I bought a turbo chef chopper, which supposedly had a lifetime warranty. It cost more than $60 at the time. The string has just broken for the second time in 2 years. The first time, replacement was free. Now it looks like there's a $12.95 delivery cost. Total rip off! Poor quality for an expensive price. Aldi often sells a similar product for about the same price as Tupperware's delivery cost. I'll be waiting for one of those rather than pump more money into Tupperware - the wait time will likely be similar.
Not what it used to be
Tupperware is not what it used to be. Everything is cracking and breaking yet the prices remain the same and the customer service stinks - I've waited 12 weeks to get my replacement.
Awful customer care
They state open 8:30-9pm but are closed. I placed my order may 15th it’s now July 8th and I have yet to get most of my order. No way to contact anyone to get an answer. All of my party orders shipped separately to me with terrible packing slips making it extremely difficult to figure out who gets what.
High cost for little quality
Products are promoted as being under a “lifetime warranty” but the process to have a warped product replaced was excruciating.
I was made to pay $12.95 postage only to realise that even though I’d selected black, after payment, the replacement part was listed as “green lid” (this company is too tight-arsed to replace an entire item).
Honestly, go to Kmart instead. You’ll get better luck there if anything goes bust and at a much fairer cost.
Used to be worth the cost
I never used to mind paying the high cost of Tupperware knowing that I could claim on the lifetime warranty when it broke (which is very common!) I will not ever buy it again now that you are expected to process the warranty claim online and are expected to pay ridiculous amounts in postage. There are many other products available now that are just as good a quality at a fraction of the cost.
The price doesn’t reflect the quality! Arctic Large Serving Centre Review
I was wanting a dip and serve tray for ages, after lots of searching I found the Tupperware Arctic Large Serving Centre & thought it was perfect & although it was expensive, I thought, my past Tupperware items were great quality, so the high amount will be reflective in the product!!! Upon receiving it, I was highly disappointed...it seems to be a really cheap plastic/material used, not like the previous ones made, as I’ve seen older ones like this, which are much better quality! The concept is great, but the dip lid was near impossible to get ...on!! And the cover, barely holds...meaning if you transport it, good luck with the serving tray lid and the contents inside, actually staying in!!! I would have thought with the price tag, that it would have been great quality and made better!!! I just appears that the quality has gone down but the price is still high!! I don’t mind paying for great quality...but Tupperware...you charge exorbitant amounts, but your quality isn’t like it use to be!!!
Service (-) 100%, money hungry (+) 100%
Another unhappy long time (25 years + ) customer . Just would like to warn everyone about this “fantastic” ( once upon a time ) company. I was very big fun of their products ,but not anymore.
Now it is better to buy something pretty and cheep and change it for the new one every so often . Believe me that will be the best option.
I’ve had about 12 (mostly lids ) to exchange as they weren’t working anymore ( seal) . Contacted they and from 12 items they requested to
-post back to them for they approval 4-5 of my life time warranty covered it...
Replacements under warranty
I bought a MicroCook pitcher with lid at a party approximately 2 years ago. The jug cracked around the handle a couple of months ago so I requested a replacement under warranty. I (finally) received the replacement yesterday, but only the jug not the lid. The problem is that they have sent a different coloured jug. Apparently the jug colour has now been changed to "Peacock blue". I called the contact number at Tupperware to ask for a matching lid, waited on hold for 15 minutes and then spoke to a very rude person who told me that they are ...not required to provide a lid because, even though the jug and lid are now mismatched, the jug is "functional". She said it was just like when you get repairs done to your car, they don't replace the whole car - not sure how it's the same thing, except if you got a replacement panel on your car which was a different colour. I've now got an expensive mismatched jug and lid. I won't be buying Tupperware again, their products are too expensive, quality isn't as good as it used to be and they don't provide the "fine print" on their warranties. Should have bought from IKEA instead!
I am very disappointed in the clear mates sets I purchased last year. I had trouble getting the lids on when they first arrived, however I soaked them in hot water as advised and managed to get them on. However with use I still find the lids terribly hard to get on, the double action seal does not work as the lid is too tight. I will think twice before purchasing again. I have some Tupperware items that are 40 years old and they are much better quality than these new ones.
Disappointed and feel ripped off.
I am super dissapointed, spent $280 on Santa Stashes (4 of them) to try and get some goodies. And I received 4 identicle stashes. Assumed at first maybe they were all the same but my friend ordered one and hers was completely different and it had such better items and quality things. Seemed she actually got the $200 worth of tupperwear for the $70 each and I didn't. Really unhappy and don't think I will be buying anymore Tupperwear if this is their treatment of customers.
I was at a Tupperware party on August 18, where I took some items for replacement. I AM STILL WAITING.
The consultant is Annie Shearer from Albury, the last time I spoke to her she said it could take a couple of months. I believe there are still outstanding items from a party a couple of weeks before . It is now three months. I have containers in my pantry with plastic bags in them, and also two that need total replacement. How much longer?
Disappointing - Tupperware Modular Mates Labels
I purchased new labels for my Tupperware Modular Mates.
The clear labels have black coloured writing (font) and are supplied on a white background. You peel the label off the background to put it on the clear modular mate container.
On sticking a label to a container I'm extremely disappointed.
Tupperware marketing department has changed the label font size to small and changed the text from all upper case to upper and lower case.
The result is once the label/s are adhered to the clear container the text is very hard to read.
I spoke to a ver...
Micro Urban rice cooker a dud
I recently received a replacement micro urban rice cooker as the older version I had cracked. The lid is impossible to get off and I broke the base of the rice cooker when i used pressure to get the lid off. Very disappointed after waiting 2 months for the replacement
Utterly disappointed Tupperware customer
for many years have been buying and using Tupperware containers, boxes, etc.
I tried recently to exchange my 10+ years of rice despenser which I bought for SGD100 over. This is my first time asking for a replacement as I have taken good care of it and have been using it carefully. Reason why I need a replacement is because for quite a few months my rice despenser has not been able to keep away rice weevils and is no longer performing at its peak.
According to Tupperware lifetime warranty and philosophy, I was very, very disappointed to get bac...k my old rice despenser with two red stoppers to prevent weevils instead of adhering to what you claim when I first bought the expensive product. I can send pictures of the two red stopper and my 10+ years of old rice despenser for your reference. Believe my rice despenser is warped after 10+ years of usage and no longer perform at its current condition that’s why weevils entered the despenser. When I first bought the item, Tupperware did not say they will get stoppers to fix such problem otherwise why would I pay so much more for a simple rice despenser? This is dishonesty and cheating the consumer of her right! Please be honest to adhere to Tupperware claim and do not use such despicable methods of handling loyal customers request.
So much for lifetime warranty wont be buying anything again
The little chopper blade broke after only a few uses and just chopping onion...they want me to spend $25 on new centre bit and that's not under warranty...I will have to chuck whole thing out as the new blade will probably just snap again
Tupperware returns policy a farce!
What a joke the lifetime warranty for Tupperware! I went online, created an account, filled in details of faulty items and submitted it only to get an email back that all 10 of my items must be returned, then I have to pay postage for any items they may or may not replace for me. I have finished with Tupperware I will never buy another item!
You have lost another faithful customer! I will now purchase kmart modular mates at least I dont pay an arm and a leg for them and then get duped by the lifetime warranty!
lids don't fit anymore, have to pay exhorbitantly for a replacement under the "lifetime warranty"
3 of my lids have cracked and don't fit anymore, I've had to resort to using 2 rubber bands to keep them on each time i use them! but the "lifetime warranty" requires me to pay so much for the postage of sending the defective items in, and the subsequent postage of the replacement items, and even then it's not guaranteed that they'll replace my warped lids, and yet they won't even send back the original items if they decide not to replace them, that it's not worth it for me to even try. Clearly this whole system is designed to ensure that customers don't bother with invoking the warranty for defective items. Surely this is illegal?

I have some very old tuppweware that has cracked lids. When on the warranty site the numbers come up not known what can I do
Put it in the recycling bin.
