I have loved working with Ozeri on a variety of reviews in the past (12″ Stainless Steel Earth Pan, 8″ Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Pan, Ozeri Blood Pressure Monitor). This time they offered me the chance to review their INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Container Set (Affiliate Link) for free.
The Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Container Set is completely BPA-Free, stain-resistant, and shatter-proof. 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. Simply press down on the center of the lid and air is forced out through the one-way valve.
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. Tony and I have both used these containers to take soup to work for lunch and found it heats the soup evenly and since you can keep the lid on, it doesn’t make a mess!
Each container also 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 Ozeri INSTAVAC container (Affiliate Link) 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. Since we have been eating healthier this year, we often have lots of cut veggies on hand to throw in a salad or to our main meal. We like to buy a lot at once, and cut them up that same day so they are ready to go when we need them. In other storage containers the veggies wilt, or get soggy after a few days. The wave pattern is definitely helping with our baby carrots! We have had them in the container over a week, and they are still fresh because the wave pattern is holding the carrots above the water that has accumulated on the bottom of the container. We have also used the containers for cut peppers with the same results!
