We received the Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Set in exchange for this review. All opinions and our need for food storage remain our own.
Using vacuum seal technology to keep food fresher, Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Set is a great container for storing leftovers.
Before I talk more about the seal, I want to share that the top feature for me is that the Ozeri food storage set is STACKABLE. For my small kitchen, this is huge! There are four containers in the set. They all stack inside one another with lids on, making them perfect for small spaces and organized pantries.
The approximate sizes of the Ozeri Food Storage Set are:
Large L10" W10" H 5.25"
8.5 W 8.5" H 4.25
L 7.5" W 7.5" H 3.5"
L 5.5" W 5.5" H 2.5"
All containers are tapered so bottom dimensions are a bit smaller.
The set is BPA-Free and includes the nesting set with vacuum seal and the locking lids.
The containers are easy to use. There are no motors or confusing parts. You simply press down on the center of the lid and air is forced out through a one-way valve. This removes excess air, reducing naturally occurring bacteria.
The valve also is a great safety feature for the microwave preventing spills, splatters, and spurts as you heat leftovers.
The bottom of each container has a wave pattern designed to keep cut fruit and vegetables elevated above the juices.
The lids have a handy date dial that allows you to record when food was placed in the container for an at-a-glance length of time you've been storing the food.
Ozeri food storage is stain-resistant, shatter-proof, transparent, and safe in the microwave, freezer and dishwasher.
The Vacuum Top: It pops down when it’s vacuum sealed and up when the seal is unlocked.
I love the vacuum seal. You do have to check them each day and press on the lid if the seal is taking in air. I think this is typical because I have some battery operated vacuum seal containers and they force air out often. When it is sealed and you unlock the lid you can hear the air being released.
Overall, these are great storage containers. They are spacious and the fact that they stack within one another for storage makes them perfect for my house.
