other day I reached into the pantry
to grab the oatmeal. I put my fingers under the lip
of the lid using my thumb to hold the side of the
container. I got just a few steps from the pantry
before the lid came off dumping oatmeal all over the
floor! The problem is that it looks like you can
pick up the container by the lid, but you can't.
Maybe the purpose of this new lid is to get people
to buy more oatmeal, since half of it ends up
on the floor!
The old-style lid doesn't look like you could use it as a handle to pick up the oatmeal container, so people probably aren't inclined try it. People are probably more apt to use two hands to pick up containers with these old-style lids.
