I received a Vacuvita storage system to faciliate this review/post. All opinions are my own.
I am always up for learning better ways to plan meals and reduce food waste in our house. I am one of those people who can go to the grocery store, come home, and decide we have nothing to eat. Vacuvita wanted us to check out their gorgeous new food storage system so they sent us a Vacuvita® One Touch Storage System to try out AND if you scroll down to the end of the post have offered to give you a chance to win one as well!
Vacuvita is a really cool concept for food storage. It’s a one touch storage system with a “home base” that sits on your counter and provides easy access to foods while keeping them inside an air-tight container. The best way to see how this works is to watch the little video on Amazon.
You can use the home base with containers (that you can sync with an app to tell you about the contents and even alert you when it’s nearing the end of its shelf life) and resealable vacuum bags. You just attach the hose and seal. Since the average household wastes 1300 pounds of food per year (up to $1500 in waste) this system really helps you cut down on that.
We’ve used the home base for fruits and veggies, bread or, right now, cookies!
Tips for using a Vacuvita:
- When storing bread products in your Home Base, leave it wrapped in paper or plastic.
- Do not store both dry and moist foods in Home Base simultaneously.
- Wash, clean and dry fresh fruits and vegetables before vacuum sealing in bags.
- Never store bananas or soft cheese in vacuum. For a list of foods not recommended, as well as guidelines for how to store all recommended foods visit the Vacuvita FAQ page: https://www.vacuvita.com/faq/
They come in some beautiful colors as well as black and white!
