Best so far

It works for me, very fine powder, using as a deodorant; drinking for heartburn, also for baking. Never had problem with lid-twist when opening.

All fine to me for the price

I have no trouble with taking off the lid - it is a twist and lift action simultaneously, not just a lift. Admittedly plastic not ideal for this world but can now be recycled, and it keeps well in it.

yes packaging not good but it is also lumpy

Everyone gives bad reviews about the packaging. But no one mentions the contents are not the best either. The powder is lumpy. A&H never is.

Amen! Needs new packaging

Great product, great price, but frustrating packaging, as others have said. Why sell a plastic container with each dose of baking soda anyway? Arm&Hammer uses a recyclable cardboard box. I'd buy theirs, but it's too expensive, so here I am with a plastic pot that's difficult to open, difficult to close, and is going to clutter the planet for 50,000 years...

Change the packaging!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

People have been complaining about the packaging for 2 years, and it's still the same. Getting the lid off, especially without spilling the contents is near impossible. How difficult would it be to change to a flip lid? Even selling this in a bag would be better.




Eaten for breakfast or at teatime, toasted crumpets are great with both sweet and savoury toppings.

A traditional yeast-free bread. In baking, buttermilk produces a lighter texture than plain milk.

Lemon Chicken, Chinese-style

This popular Cantonese dish from Hong Kong is something of a one-off, as lemons are rarely used in Chinese cooking.

Sticky Honey Gingerbread

This light mellow gingerbread is perfect to satisfy those mid-afternoon sweet cravings with a cup of tea, but don't forget to serve with some paper napkins to sort out those sticky fingers afterwards.
