Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth BPA Free Food Storage Container Set Review

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

I am not a huge fan of plastic. We try very hard to severely limit the amount of plastic that enters our home. With good reason, with the amount of BPA that is in them.We primarily use stainless steel or glass to store any food items. But, honestly, sometimes plastic is just more practical. Stainless steel can be expensive, especially for large items, and glass, even thick glass, poses a breakage issue. Not to mention that some storage solutions are better than others for leftovers. 

How often do your leftovers get pushed to the back of the fridge and forgotten about? We work really hard to not have any food go to waste. We frequently use leftovers in soups, stir frys, salads, etc. We trim our vegetables very carefully to not have much, if anything, go to waste. This Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth BPA Free Food Storage Container Set work better to keep foods fresher, longer.

They even came with instructions on how to use them!

They are also very convenient in that they can be stacked inside of one another when in your cabinet. I love that they take up less space this way.

The set has 8 pieces, four bottoms and four lids.

Each lid latches on to its respective bottom on all four sides making a very tight seal. See those green tabs on the top? They can be used to push out and them lock out any extra air to keep the food fresher, longer!

Introducing the world's most effective vacuum-sealed food container set, the Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Container Set. Completely BPA-Free, the 8-Piece Nesting Set with Vacuum Seal and Locking Lids is designed to SAVE FOOD -- simply press down on the lid to remove excess air that spoils food; SAVE MONEY -- pays for itself and more by keeping food fresher longer; SAVE SPACE -- each container nests for convenient, efficient storage; SAVE TIME -- each container is microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe for long-lasting use. Unlike other products, the Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Containers use a patented valve system that allows you to easily remove excess air, so growth of naturally occurring bacteria is greatly reduced, and food stays fresh longer. With the Ozeri INSTAVAC, instant vacuum freshness is created without pumps, motors or confusing parts. Simply press down on the center of the lid and air is forced out through the one-way valve. Creating a vacuum requires minimal effort. The patented valve system is also designed to automatically release air pressure when it builds up in the microwave, so you never have to worry about spills, splatters, and bursting. The BPA-free, stain-resistant, shatter-proof, Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Containers are as transparent as glass, and safe to use in microwaves, freezers and dishwashers. Each container features a handy date dial that allows you to record when food was first stored and monitor days kept in the refrigerator, so you'll never have to worry about remembering how long each container has been in the refrigerator. Each container is also made with a wave patterned bottom that keeps cut fruit and vegetables elevated from the deteriorating effects of water and juices which can collect at the bottom over time. Your satisfaction is guaranteed and backed by Ozeri's industry-praised, no-hassle warranty and customer service.

I recently used the largest container to transport some pasta salad for a potluck lunch of some local homeschoolers. It was slightly too big and the next size down was slightly too small, but it worked just fine. There was no mess during transport and that matters a great deal to me!
