Lasting Freshness vacuum glass and plastic containers and vacuum freezer bags work as a food preserver as well as a storage solution.
Containers can be used for all aspects of food, including storing bulk produce, meat, and fish, storing leftovers, helping to marinate or pickle food, or planning your weekly meals. Vacuum freezer bags are designed to freeze food until you are ready to use, giving you the ability to buy in bulk, avoid freezer burn, and have the same quality as freshly bought meat or produce. Glass containers are perfect from freezer/fridge to oven/microwave to table concept.
We recommend pumping the container or a bag with the handheld vacuum pump until it becomes difficult to pump-- the container or a bag will have been fully sealed. When not in use, keep containers, bags and vacuum pump clean and dry. Containers, lids and pump are dishwasher safe. You do not need to take valve and/or gasket out from the lids before washing them. If you feel vacuum is no longer holding up then most likely you have some food debris stuck in the valve and/or gasket. Remove these and wash them thourougly. Bags need to be hand washed.
To release the vacuum pressure on the container, press down or gently lift up the button in the middle of the lid. This will depend on the style of valve you're using. The lid should be easy to remove once you have released the air pressure and unclipped the hinges. For the bags, simply open the bag.
