Ozeri INSTAVAC food storage containers

I have always been a big fan of packing my own lunch for a long time and bringing it to work. For one, it saves money and for two you can eat a lot better. For a lot of my friends and myself, eating better at work is really about meal prep. 

 Finding the right food containers is key.  I came upon the Ozeri INSTAVAC food storage containers and they are great.  These BPA-free, locking lid with vacuum seal are perfect for the job. The vacuum lid allows you to push unnecessary air out, keeping the food inside fresh. The valve on the lid allows air out but not in after squeezing excess air out. Not that I store food for long periods of time, but there is a dial on the lid, in which you turn, to show the date of when the food was packed. A nice way of seeing how long the food has been stored for. No more writing on the lid with a grease pencil on when the food was put inside. The bottom of the containers has a wave pattern, so fruits and vegetables inside are elevated off the bottom of the container. The eight piece, or four container set, with lids comes in the sizes of 5Liters or 21 cups / 3Liters or 12.7 cups / 1.5Liters or 6.3 cups /  and 0.7Liters or 3 cups.  The containers are stain resistant and can be stored in the freezer and also used in the microwave. I also love that they can be thrown in the dishwasher, yet I end up hand washing them and turning around to use them again. This set of Ozeri food containers are perfect.
