But is it genuine?

I always thought it was ex demonstrators selling off stuff or people selling stuff they got free or no longer want, so effectively 2nd hand therefore cheaper

I was originally looking on Ebay for ex demo and second hand but there are many many many sellers from Malaysia selling new complete Modular Mates sets. They have 1000+ sales with 100% feedback. I was just curious if anyone has gone this way?

I've bought lots of Tupperware from Malaysian sellers.  Exactly the same as the stuff I bought locally but at a fraction of the price.

My mum buys lots of the ebay Malaysian Tupperware.   I don't know if it is real or fake but she's been happy with it.

I once brought a garlic press for $5, instead of $50 from a china/hong kong seller.

It was exactly the same however did not have the tuperwear logo, which would have costed me the $50.

It was great, prefect style.  However after 12 months it broke.

I was so tempted to buy the $50 one just so I could get the lifetime warrenty but we just dont have that sort of money to spend on a garlic press.

Amazingly they dont sell the ones form Hong Kong/China anymore.

Tupperware from Malaysia is genuine, I have purchased heaps without any issues. Always try and purchase something that has been available in Australia otherwise you will have trouble with the warranty.

Technically you don't get a lifetime warranty if you buy it from eBay or similar, you only get the warranty if you buy it from a demonstrator here. Not sure how they check it but if you turn up to a party and you are asked where you brought it from and say online the demonstrator will not take it in to be fixed. Also a demonstrator can be kicked out of Tupperware for selling on an eBay store.

I bought about half of my modular mates from Malaysian sellers a few years ago - I can't tell the difference between them now, so to me they are identical. I know one sized container I have is not available in Australia, so I could never get that under warranty if there was a problem with it. But I figure that modular mates are not like the kids lunchboxes or something with small bits or moving parts, and they don't go into the dishwasher often etc.., so there really isn't going to be much chance for breakage where I will need the warranty, even if there is some stamp or something I am not aware of that shows which ones are from Malaysia and which are from Australia,
