Freezer storage solutions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am very new to freezer storage and am looking for container solutions... I would like to stay away from zipper bags and would defiantly like to lean towards reusable options... what do you use??

I love my vacu-seal. The bags are plastic but they are reusable and I love that I can boil them for reheating.

glass pyrex bowls with lids are good but I find I still get freezer burn pretty quickly.....

I have pyrex dishes with lids, but I don't use them in the freezer often because I turn to them a lot for casserole/one dish meals. But, if I do freeze them, I Put a layer of aluminum foil before I put the lid on.

I like the Tupperware Freezer dishes. Once you have a set or two, you're good for years to come. They're expensive to begin with, but they pay off big time. You can get a set not meant for the freezer, but they may chip, crack or break. Tupperware does replace dishes that crack, chip, break or peel. When my mom passed away I turned in a bunch of her tupperware from years and years ago (my sister said she got them when I was a toddler, so 20 years ago) and got free replacements for all of them. You can go with the rubbermaid version, but they don't replace their products and I find they chip a lot easier than Tupperware.

I'd really like to get a vacu-seal system for our meat. I buy it in bulk and I hate storing it in freezer bags.

Vacusealer here too.. I got mine from bed bath and beyond. There are a couple of issues with reusing the bags though.. one, you can't reuse them if they were used with raw meat. two, when I cut them open they tend to curl a bit on the ends, so lining them back up to reseal later can sometimes be tough..

I like the gallon size though for my lasagna. I tend to put liquids that go in the freezer in ziploc freezer bags though since I haven't figured out how to seal liquids without spilling them first
