The plastic container includes a container top and a container bottom. The container utilizes a cut-back closure device which maintains the container top in a secure position relative to the container bottom and also forms a nearly leak proof seal. The container top includes gripping tabs which facilitate the separation of the container top from the container bottom and permit container venting. The plastic container is suited for microwave cooking, top-shelf dishwashing and freezer use.
