A vacuum bag is a plastic bag that is intended for single use. It can be used to store vacuum sealed food in the freezer or fridge and prevents freezer burn. You can remove the air from a vacuum bag by using the Vacuvita’s external vacuum function.
Each container has a small transparent window that allows you to see what is inside of it. Moreover, you can use a combination of different colors and sizes of containers to differentiate between the contents. On top of this, we’ve developed a smartphone app to keep track of what you’ve stored in which container.
The additional storage containers can be used for basically any kind of food that you want to store on medium- to long-term basis. They can be used as regular storage boxes on a shelf or within the fridge or freezer to save food which has to be cooled. Most foods can be vacuumized. Exceptions are soft cheeses, mushrooms, and garlic. Vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussel sprouts should first be dried and blanched. If you are unsure whether your food type can be stored inside the additional storage container, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you out. For an indication of improved expiration times, please consult this table.
No, the Vacuvita Home Base itself is not designed to be stored in the fridge or freezer because it contains electrical parts and has a power cord. Our external containers and vacuum bags will serve this purpose and can be conveniently used in the fridge or freezer.
Vacuvita vacuum storage containers will allow you to store vacuum-sealed food in the freezer, fridge or pantry. You can remove the air from the container by using the Home Base’s external vacuum function.
Food spoilage is mostly caused by microorganisms and a lot of those microorganisms need oxygen to live. By removing the oxygen we reduce the growth of certain microorganisms. The Vacuvita Home Base removes oxygen and prevents light (which is also a cause of growth for microorganisms) from affecting your food. When you store food in a vacuum and then in the freezer, you remove almost all the causes for food spoilage. The combination of the Vacuvita with the additional storage containers and bags is ideal for this.
After a great deal of time spent on perfecting the system, it came to light that there were issues with the creation of the dishwasher box. The aesthetics and functionality were not as we had hoped so the dishwasher box was discontinued from the final product. The Home Base is very easy to clean with a damp cloth when required.
