Obviously you know I'm frugal. So my husband and I do our best to not waste food, but sometimes it's so tough! Zippy bags and plastic containers often let my fruit and veggies go moldy or over-ripened very quickly. So I was sooo excited when Ozeri sent me a complimentary Ozeri INSTAVAC Nesting Food Storage Container Set to try out.
This storage set is a really cool way to manually "vacuum seal" your stored goodies. Simply close the lid, then press down on the center of the lid. Your pressure will force the air out of the container through the one-way valve on the top. This removes excess air, which reduces the chances of bacteria growing.
As you push down, air squeezes out through the one-way valve.
The date dial is a nifty addition.
Some really cool features:
wave pattern on the bottom elevates fruits and veggies, keeping them out of water and juices, which often causes them to prematurely soften and mold
date dial on the top to record the storage date and keep track of how long your leftovers have been in the fridge
it is made of BPA-free, stain resistant, shatter-proof plastic
