Fresh Vac Professional Series Food Storage Containers?

Has anyone tried these? I guess they are sold at Target, Sur La Table and online.

Someone asked in this other topic.

I'm kind of burnt on my tests above with glass jars and other containers. However if there were raves, I might consider giving them a try ... maybe.

What's that date dial all about? How's it work?

  1. I swear by wide mouth mason jars and the food saver vac system. After the intial vaccum machine the lid adaptor costs $10 and the jars are about $8 for a dozen. They can be microwaved and frozen and with the wide mouth, it is easy to slide the still frozen stuff out after a 5 minute sit in a water bath.

    I don't think any of this plastic stuff is going to out shine glass. The food saver canister lids can't be washed in hot soapy water - that has to spell problems of trapped bacteria and spores.

    1. I'm sticking with Mason jars....

      Thanks everyone!

      1. Didn't know that you could use a food saver and mason jars. I've got a food saver and love it. Didn't know all the cool things it can do!

          1. I have great issues with storage systems. I have used these now for almost a year now, and I am very satisfied. You will have a learning curve but hang in there. Yesterday I ate Chili and Bread delivered from Logans restaurant on Sept 1 and it was fresh as can be. I have real food issues. Believe me when I sy fresh. I bought my system at Costco (6 > Quite reasonable.
