Fresh Vac Professional Series Food Storage Containers?

  • 4

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

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.
