The only thing worse than looking for missing lids in a messy kitchen cabinet is trying to find room for it all. After trying different brands of reusable plastic bags that would crack or tear, I finally picked the best: 3Cheers Reusable Silicone Food Storage Bags.
As a longtime traveler living entirely without carry-on baggage, food storage has been a major struggle for me. Very few rental units have containers and I refuse to continue to buy disposable plastic bags. These bags were not only a lifeline, but also a revelation. They are dishwasher and freezer safe, and you can reheat food in them using a microwave or by dropping the bag in boiling water. What’s absolutely breathtaking, however, is that you can put them in a real oven. They are safe at temperatures up to 446 degrees.
Nowadays there is an unlimited number of silicone food storage bags, available individually or in sets. While some have regular ziplock closures, I prefer the sliders because every brand of ziplock style bags I’ve seen has reviews indicating the containers have opened. Since I use mine for food while I travel, the last thing I want is to open my luggage on a plane to find food everywhere inside. Some people have complained that the sliders can be difficult to put on and take off, but the solution is to simply rub the slider and its track completely with olive or cooking oil.
I chose this particular set because it includes the biggest bag I’ve seen yet. It can hold over a gallon, which is several days of food for me. Made from premium food grade silicone, the bags are free of colored dye, BPA, PVC and phthalate. I use them every time I cook. Only the absolute necessities make the cut to save space in my luggage, but I would ditch a pair of shoes to keep those bags.
