Effective Food Storage

The Cuisinart FreshEdge system provides an easy way to seal perishable items to lock in freshness.
There are two sizes in this set, one is the size of a large apple and the other two large apples. The plastic is a very thick and durable plastic that gives the impression of quality upon first inspection. There are no directions describing how to use the system but after a few minutes the system becomes intuitive. The central silver Cuisinart top can be turned to unlock the top and pumped. As the resistance to pumping increases, you know that it is now being sealed. A small black release valve lets air escape to open the lid.
I noticed that fruit and vegetables will last nearly twice as long in these containes. Cheese seems to last even longer which is very nice for the more expensive small portions that would otherwise sit in ziplock bags. I use the 32 oz containers on their side to keep my pricey lunch meats fresh. This is invaluable given that the fridge will only keep these meats fresh and not dried out for around 10 days. This system keeps the meats fresh and moist for nearly double that, around 21 days I have found. Loose salad can be kept for a few days without developing wilt which is nice.
I have not found any glaring drawback yet but I know that I am going to pick up the larger sizes as well to house cereal and dog food; SKU: 9027111.
This product is useful for leftovers and any sort of perishable food storage, well worth the investment.

i'm loving the way it seals and works. Had container full of salad for one week in fridge and it's still fresh.
