Instavac Food Storage Set from Ozeri {Review}

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Instavac Food Storage Set

The Ozeri Instavac Food Storage Containers are a great way to store produce, foods in the fridge, and leftovers. The Instavac containers are innovative because of their vaccum seal technology, which allows the removal of excess air before storage. Without the excess oxygen and air, bacteria and mold will grow at a much slower rate, and foods will last a lot longer than in standard storage containers.

The Instavac food storage containers are BPA-free and are dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe, making it easy to use the same container to store and heat your food!

The benefits of the Ozeri Instavac food storage include:

1. Saving money on food
With the ability to vacuum out extra air, your food will last longer! That means less money on wasted groceries! I wish I had had these Instavac containers during the summer when we got our co-op farmshare vegetables. We always got so many of the same item, like Kale or Bok Choi, and I needed time to be able to use it all. These Ozeri containers would have helped keep the vegetables fresh longer!

2. Organization
Our container-cabinet is out of control. Things fall out and don't stack together well. With the wide range in sizes and the nesting nature of these containers, our cupboard would be a lot more organized! I really love how well the containers fit inside each other with the lids on. That is important so that it's easy to find the lids when you need them!

3. Helping the Earth with Reuseable Containers
Sometimes I'm tempted to use plastic baggies for food, especially for produce that I need to store in the fridge. The problem with produce bags is that they don't seal well and are terrible for the earth. The Ozeri Instvac containers are great for produce because they have raised ridges on the bottom of the containers to help keep vegetables from standing in water or juices. They've thought of everything! Because these reuseable containers do a better job than bags anyway, using these containers will kepp other disposable bags and containers out of landfills.

4. Knowing Your Leftovers
These Ozeri Instavac Containers are clear like glass, so that you can see what's inside. But even cooler is their calendar dial on the top of the container. You can spin the dial to the day's date of when you stored the leftovers. No more guessing about when those leftovers are from! When using the dial, I loved knowing when my leftovers were stored, but I wished the dial would turn in both directions.

5. Ease of Use
The Ozeri Instavac containers are easy to use and easy to use correctly. There are four locking tabs--one on each side of the container. This helps create a good seal and they are easy enough to snap on and off. In addition the top green flap on the valve pops up and down easily. I was worried that it would be quite a struggle to get excess air out of the container, but I was able to squeeze with both hands and then push once more with a flat palm to get the extra air out. I didn't feel like I was straining my muscles in my wrists or hands.

Overall, I am very pleased with my Ozeri INSTAVAC containers. I like that everything to use them is contained in the container itself, with no extra pumps or attachments. I am very excited about using these with my produce and leftovers. I would also feel very safe using these to transport soups or other liquids to family gatherings and potlucks. You can also check out my Ozeri Instavac review on Amazon.

In addition to all of their great qualities, these containers come with a 1-year guarantee! It's great to know that Ozeri stands behind their products.
