"VacuWare containers are great! I had previously been using a vacuum sealer for plastic bags. I love the convenience of getting out the pump instead of getting a machine and then cutting bags to fit. Besides, bags can't be made to fit all sizes and shapes! VacuWare is great for making foods ahead of time, like salads, because the lettuce stays crisp longer and doesn't brown over quickly. Saves food and money! The containers themselves are nice looking and can go from refrigerator to table - Can't do that with bags! All in all it's a great addition to my kitchen."
