Vacuvita Vacuum Food Storage System Review

 

 

 

 

If you want to take the classic practice of vacuum sealing to a new level with style and convenience, you must check out the Vacuvita Vacuum Food Storage System! This system is absolutely amazing, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it and how it has changed the way I store food.

What is Vacuvita?

Keep food fresh up to 5 times longer

Enjoy your daily fresh food, stop food wastage and save money. Vacuvita is a fully-automated and sustainable kitchen system that keeps food fresh for up to 5 times longer! No more freezer burned meat, dried out vegetables and soggy salad.

Have you ever tasted a steak, prepared sous-vide? With your Vacuvita system you can and you will love it! Did you forget to marinate your salmon the day before? In the vacuum containers you marinate in minutes, just in time for your spontaneous BBQ with friends and family. Whether it is marinating, pickling, sous-vide cooking, Vacuvita will help you to cook like a chef.

Did you know an average household wastes 1300 pounds of food a year costing them over $1500?

I was able to review the Vacuvita home base along with the complete container package and storage bags. This complete package would provide you everything you need to start storing your food longer and to keep it fresher.

This system utilizes not just vacuum storage bags but also various sizes of food storage containers. The bags comes in sizes Medium and Large and are completely resealable with a zipper. For example, if you store 2 chicken breasts in the bag but only want to eat one, you can do so easily and then reseal the bag. This will prevent unnecessary waste of plastic or food. Vacuvita bags are BPA and BPS free and made out of a multi-layered plastic that is stronger than what most competitor’s use.

The containers have made it possible to store foods that you were unable to store with bags with other food storage systems. Many items such as bread, chips, cookies, donuts and pantry items that could easily be crushed in the bags. These containers come in various sizes (small, medium and large) and colors (white, blue, orange and green) to suit your needs and your kitchen style. They are well designed, durable, reusable, dishwasher proof and free of BPA or BPS. With a see-through-window, and usage of high-end materials you own, this is the newest and best vacuum food container in the market. You can easily refrigerate or freeze fruits, meats, nuts and vegetables in these containers. Utilize the app for your iPhone or Android device and you will never have to worry about how long it has been in the fridge or freezer or when you put the items in the container. The Vacuvita containers can be scanned and also bags can be added. You can conveniently scan the contents of your containers without breaking the vacuum seal. When food is nearing its shelve life you’ll get a message so you can consume it in time. You’ll know exactly what you have, so you can plan your meal – even if you’re not in the kitchen. I enjoy having salad for lunch everyday, however I could never consume it quick enough before it turned soggy and brown. The containers allow me to save money on my salad items because they last so much longer in the containers.

Let me tell you about the main unit of this system, the Home Base. The Home Base is the perfect way to keep your food fresh right on your counter top. It can also be used to apply vacuum to external containers and bags. I use the home base to store my bread products right now. The home base cannot be stored in the fridge or freezer, it needs to be plugged in on your counter top. It opens easily with the push of a button, and once you close it, it automatically reseals. So easy and simple. When you want to seal up bags or containers, just plug the adaptor in and a little button will appear on the top lid of the home base. Once you put the adapter on the sealing part of the bag or container, push the button and then you just wait for the sealing to be complete. Very easy and simple.

Storing crisp, dry foods and humid products in the same Home Base or container causes the dry products to go soggy and the moist products to turn dry. Fresh baked bread is actually both: a crispy crust, and a soft, moist interior. We recommend that you leave the bread in a paper or plastic bag inside the Homebase. That way it is protected from the outside air and atmosphere, but does not suffer from the moisture migration.

The quality of your bread and ingredients also strongly affect the storage time. Some store bought breads have preservatives in them, so they are likely to keep longer than home baked or artisanal breads that don’t.

Because the air is sucked out of the Homebase, bags or containers, the relative humidity inside is much higher. This means that sometimes when you open the Homebase, it feels warm in there, while it is actually not warmer, but more humid than the room the Homebase is standing in. Some baked goods are very sensitive to high humidity and might even spoil faster. Keeping the bread inside a bag will resolve that as well.

If you enjoy cooking Sous Vide style, Vacuvita and Chef Steps Joule are a perfect match! I recently reviewed the Chef Steps Joule, and I love how my food turned out pairing that with the Vacuvita bags. This is such an easy process for anyone, whether you are a first time cook or a master cook!  I purchased 2 rib eye steaks from the market, once I seasoned them up it was time to put them in the Vacuvita bag. The medium sized bag was perfect for the steaks. Once the bags were sealed it was time to cook! Since the bags are BPS and BPA free, I didn’t have to worry about any chemicals leaching into my food while I cook. My steak came out amazing and was juicy and delicious.

As you can see, so many food items can be stored in the containers and bags and kept fresh. The containers are a great size and fit perfectly in my fridge or freezer with no issues. I love how you can just pop the containers open, take out what you want, seal it up and put it back. Same with the bags and their zipper closure.

    This sounds like an amazing food storage system. I have been making meals for the week ahead of time and could really use this.

    • Hi Ann,

      Using Vacuvita can be a huge time saver indeed. You can prepare food today and enjoy the same taste and flavor even weeks later. Of course, it does depend on the storage type (fridge or freezer) and the food.

  10. This is one amazing thing to have in the kitchen. It will not only keep food fresh longer, and save us money. I really want to have my own vacuvita food storage system. The price may be a little steep for food containers but the huge savings I can get from making food last longer is worth it.

  11. This is really interesting. I’ve never encountered these before and it would be so efficient and convenient to have them at home.

  12. I have always wondered about this topic.
    I think it is pretty neat to vacuum-pack food – seems to save space as well as increase longevity of the food!

  13. This sounds like a great tool! I would love to have one in my kitchen!

  14. Wow this looks really cool. I love vacuum sealing. Its awesome for big families with wanting to make sure everything stays fresh and kept! I use mine all the time.

  15. This sounds like a really great product! I love vacuum sealing foods. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Wow I am impressed. This looks like a system my daughter can use in college! She is always worrying about space, plus this keeps food so much fresher.

  17. This is so cool and tech savvy. I love how this is linked to your phone for more monitoring!

  18. Our Family World says:

    This is so next level storage! But as expected, the price is also awesome, haha.
