I'm kind of excited! We typically have a lot of leftovers when I cook - I'm not sure why. And we also have two grown daughters with very busy schedules which means they need to grab those leftovers and go all the time! I prefer glass storage, but with all the running around, some good plastic pieces are essential. These are great. Sturdy, BPA free, and with a bonus of a vacuum seal technology that's not complicated and actually works - these are a winner!
The kit comes with 4 sizes of bowls and lids: 8 total pieces. They nest nicely inside each other WITH the lids on- a huge plus! The largest one is a great size for a family salad to go, or a family meal. Really nice! Here's a quick video of me showing how you do the vacuum. So easy. Just press it! That's it! You can see the little button pop out as the one way valve releases the air out but it doesn't go back in. You can get even more air out but pushing not just on the top but squeezing top and bottom with your full hand. To release the air you just pop up that green button.
The other kind of handy feature is the little dial on the air valve. You can set it for the date that you put your items in there so you know how long it's been hanging out in the fridge. Not sure how much I'll use that but it's a good idea.
