Ozeri InstaVac Food Storage Set Review

*Disclaimer: I was sent these products for free for review. My opinions are my own and unpaid for.*

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?

  11. I keep forgetting food in my fridge sometimes. I did not understand the dial part_ does it show the date when you put it in fridge?

    1. So do I! Yes, there is a dial on top that has numbers like a clock. You put it on the day of the month that you are putting it into the fridge and that way you can keep track of how long it has been in there.

  12. I like the fact they can go straight from the freezer to the microwave. Very handy to have around the kitchen

  14. Perfect timing! I really want to start meal prepping and bringing food from home to work instead of constantly buying outside food and wasting so much money. I'm always worried about how the plastic affects the food when it's microwaved. Do you know if this is BPA free?

  18. I have never had the chance to use a storage system like this, but I imagine that it is a great way to keep your fresh food from going bad and that alone would be good reason to try it.
