This 5-piece set of smaller Status Full Tritan vacuum containers offers an excellent starting point for a new home food storage system. Built entirely from nigh unbreakable BPA-Free Tritan, they have been designed to handle years of use and, for added convenience, they even feature inbuilt vacuum suction and storage date indicators.
Through the use of either a manual or electric Status pump, these containers can hold an airtight vacuum. Storing foods in a vacuum environment is an ideal way to preserve them for longer, and Status’ testing has shown that their containers allow for foodstuffs to last up to 4 times longer before going off.
This increased freshness occurs as a result of oxygen being removed from the interior of the container. By removing oxygen, the conditions needed for bacteria growth are severely limited, heavily reducing the rate at which they can spoil foods, even notoriously dangerous ones such as fresh meat or fish.
For any storage system to be effective, it needs to be versatile. This set does a great job of offering a range of options to cover many situations and consists of the following containers:
Altogether, this combination of containers can be used for many roles ranging from storing fruits, vegetables or leftovers to being used on the go for work/school lunches or picnics.
For some added convenience, these containers feature both a calendar storage date indicator and a vacuum suction indicator. The latter of these proves very useful to ensure that enough air is removed from a container to produce a strong enough vacuum. It also helps to show if a container has been opened but has accidentally been stored without re-applicating the vacuum.
Meanwhile, the date indicator helps to keep track of how long food inside a container has been stored or its use-by date. This is especially useful in family homes to ensure everyone knows when certain foods need to be eaten.
In a twist from their other containers, these containers are made almost entirely of Tritan, as the lid is also made of it for these models. Renowned for its incredible durability, Tritan is widely regarded as one of the best modern plastics, ensuring that it can handle frequent use without becoming heavily damaged or discoloured.
The fully Tritan design also allows for the containers to be fully transparent. This makes it easier to see what’s stored inside without having to release the vacuum and remove the lid to check.
Of course, despite their numerous functions, the primary job of these containers is storage. Therefore, Status has designed them with practicality in mind. As a result, they are safe for use in a freezer and can be cleaned in a dishwasher. They are also microwave-safe for up to 2 minutes without their lid.
These containers have also been designed to be stacked on top of each other and they can connect snuggly when fitted within the ridges on the base and lid. In particular, the 2.0-litre and 1.4-litre containers and 0.8-litre and 0.5-litre containers are designed for secure stacking in those pairs.
