By pressing down the lid of a Pac’n’Vac container, the Vacuum Valve system expels the air with a 100 per cent airtight seal to allow it to keep food fresher for longer.
All containers in the range are 100mm deep and are freezer safe. They have colour-coordinated lids to ensure contents are easily identifiable and the risk of cross-contamination is eliminated.
They also have an optional day indicator to allow chefs to keep track of stored foods.
Unlike some of its competition, the Pac’n’Vac requires no electronic assistance or difficult processes in order to create a vacuum.
Pac’n’Vac Containers are made and distributed by Mitchell & Cooper.
Why you should buy it:
Managing director of Mitchell & Cooper Guy Cooper said: “Initial scientific tests that we commissioned have shown significant advantages of using Pac’n’Vac over a standard non vacuum container.
“For example when a standard punnet of strawberries was split evenly, with one half placed in a Pac’n’Vac container and the other half placed in a non-vacuum container, the strawberries in the Pac’n’Vac container lasted at least five times longer.”
