Instavac Green Earth Food Storage Containers, Set of 8 Pieces, by Ozeri

Our toddler has his own little deck garden for all his different types of berries. While I took him on vacation, my husband saved him all the berries that his garden produced in one of the regular snap wear containers that he found in our kitchen. Our son was almost in tears when the surprise of all the berries gathered while he was away turned into a bowl of moldy fruits. Since then we have been trying to find better ways of storing his fruits that would keep it fresh.

This set of Instavac containers by Ozeri has been quite promising. First, I was happily surprised by the size of the containers. We have been using the biggest container for storing tomatoes from our garden. The different sizes are 21 cups (5.0 liters), 12.7 cups (3.0 Liters), 6.3 cups (1.5 liters), and 3 cups (0,7 liters). No more having to use different containers to store one simple set of leftovers, or fruits. The containers can store inside the biggest one which makes the set a great space saver which is always a plus in our small kitchen. Its Instavac system is very easy to use, even our toddler has learned how to do it; It removes the excess air quickly without depending on other kitchen gadgets to achieve it. The bottom of the containers is not flat which is great for storing fruits.

The containers are made out of BPA free transparent hard plastic. It is supposed to be dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe; We have washed the containers on the dishwasher (top rack) but have only used it in the refrigerator as we avoid using any plastic in the microwave. One of the features of this set that we did not even pay attention to until we began using it is the date dial. The date dial has been very useful for our household, it has allowed us to ditch the notes on the fridge with dates of leftovers.
