I admit, I have a ton of bowls that needed to be tossed so I couldn't wait for these to arrive. I'd read great things about them so I was thrilled to see if they held up to my constant roll of leftovers. They arrived quickly and were well packaged. Upon opening the box I found the 4 bowls neatly placed inside one another.
The set includes 4 bowls and 4 lids. The bowls range in size and easily nest into one another when not in use. You could also stack them when not in use as well, if you aren't tight on space. The lids offer a splash of green around the edges as well as the vacuum seal at the top. Other than that they are clear and easily allow you to see what's inside.
There are 4 different sized bowls in this set. They range in size from 21 cups to 3 cups. Each offers a lid that fits securely and is leak proof. The lid snaps into place easily and provides a nice secure fit. On top of that the vacuum seal helps keep food fresh so that you waste less! The vacuum seal is quite easy to use! Simply fill the bowl, lock the handles into place to secure the lid, press down on the center of the lid to force the air out, set the dial, and store! It's really that easy and only takes a few seconds and very little effort! You'll hear a whistle like noise when you press down to release the air as well as when you release the vacuum seal. This is totally normal.
The date dial is located right on top of the vacuum seal lever. It offers notches for up to day 30 so that you can easily set the date that you stored the items. This helps you remember so that your food doesn't go to waste and you'll have an idea of how long an item has been in the fridge. Directly in the center of that valve you'll see a vacuum indicator, which lets you know when it's sealed properly. If it's poking outward, the vacuum seal is released. If it's poking inward the seal is created.
The base of each of the bowls offers a wave pattern that helps keep fruits and veggies elevated from moisture to preserve them longer. They are very easy to clean as they can be hand washed or tossed in the dishwasher! Overall, I am very happy with these bowls and would definitely purchase them again!
