I am so happy to write this review! And super excited about the product. Through my US Family Guide association, I was chosen to test out this Ozeri InstaVac Food Storage Set. It comes with 4 containers that each have a lid.
The idea behind these storage containers is that you can release air through a vacuum seal and therefore prolong the life of fresh foods being stored. It prevents bacteria from forming with.
I love how easy to use they were. With just pressure from my fingers, the air was released and it became vacuumed sealed. You can't even open the lid from the sides until you release the valve on top. And you can hear the air coming out or going in to know its done. The other great part is the dial on the top that you set to the day you put the food in. I can't tell you how often I've stored something and forgot how long its been in the fridge... This way, I know! Without stickers on the container or writing. On the bottoms, there is a wave pattern. This keeps things like fruits and vegetables from sitting in their natural juices and getting soggy.
I also like that they are supposed to be stain-resistant, shatter-proof while also being just as transparent as glass. With kids, glass doesn't last long. It is considered dangerous in our home. So having well-made plastic things is awesome.
I think this would be a great gift too. I mean, its not just food storage. Its also food organization. You can microwave, freeze and throw them in the dishwasher. My video below will show you how to use them. What do you like about something like this?
