The Ozeri INSTAVAC Nesting Food Storage Container Set is a handy way to store food in the fridge and freezer to keep it fresher longer. This set of containers have lids with a patented one-way valve that that when you press the lid down on the bowl it forces air out of it to create a vacuum seal. There is no need for any extra pumps, motors, or confusing parts. This valve reduces the air volume inside so naturally occurring bacteria is less able to grow. You can also open the valve lever to release pressure and prevent spills and splatters in the microwave. The lid also has a date dial to properly record when you first stored the food and you can monitor the days the food has been in the refrigerator so you don't have any surprises. The wave pattern on the bottom of each container raises cut fruit and vegetables above any water or juices. The set comes with 4 different sized containers with lids: 21 cups (5.0 liters), 12.7 cups (3.0 liters), 6.3 cups (1.5 liters), and 3 cups (0.7 liters). These are BPA-free, stain-resistant, shatter-proof and as transparent. They are also freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe.
Our Thoughts: These are handy containers that work as described and create a good seal all around the lid when properly used. You can hear and feel the air coming out of the valve when you press down on the lid to seal. To show the bowl was airtight and the lid was secured to the bowl, even before the flaps were snapped into place, my daughter held the lid by the flaps after we produced the seal and it did not release from the bowl right away.
The Ozeri 8-Piece Food Storage System is better than storing food in old sour cream containers or regular containers like I used to because they keep your food fresher longer and you know exactly when you placed the food in the fridge. The dial makes it easier to know when it was stored in the fridge and how long it has been there. I love that I don't have to mark these with masking tape and permanent marker or be oblivious as to how old the food placed in these are. These containers also help save money because you don't throw away as much spoiled food and these are reusable.
Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Nesting Food Storage Container Set Features.
The Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Set is great for storing all sorts of food in the fridge and freezer. I love the larger one for leftovers or a tossed salad for my family of 6. The smaller ones are great for raw veggies or fruits and single or double portions of leftovers. The smaller sizes would be great to take in a lunch as well. They are also great for storing prepped ingredients well ahead of time for dinners or entertaining guests.
These neat food storage containers are super convenient, easy to use, and saves: food, money, space and time. I have used these a while now and have noticed no staining, warping, leaking, or sealant issues. I love that they nest together neatly for easy storage in small spaces when not in use. So far these are holding up very well. I recommend these for anyone needing a better storage solution for their food in the refrigerator and freezer and for heating up leftovers/food in the microwave.
