How to store left-overs? Tips & Tricks

Manage your leftovers with TightVac

"Leftovers Storage: Tips for Fridge or Freezer with Tightvacs. Tightvacs are the perfect solution for keeping leftovers fresh in the fridge or freezer. Whether it's veggies or dry goods, our patented system helps them stay fresher for longer.

Reduce wasted food with the help of TightVac's in the kitchen!

Transfer your fresh produce from plastic or paper bags to a Tightvac for fridge storage. Veggies stay crispier for longer, and you can extend the shelf life of fresh lettuce and asparagus for days, even weeks! Use our containers to store leftover chopped onions, peppers, and other veggies for use in your next dish.

For more porous veggies like garlic or mushrooms, we recommend placing them in a sealed plastic bag and then in a Tightvac. Open the Vacs every two days to allow moisture to dissipate. For maximum shelf life, use a Solid style Vac to keep light out and prevent mold growth.

You can also use Tightvacs in the freezer to keep expensive spices, teas, and coffee fresh. Whole slabs or slices of cheese will stay fresh for over two months, and grated cheeses will maintain their aroma and flavor for even longer.

Use Tightvacs to store any leftovers in your fridge or freezer, from pasta and potatoes to carrots and more. Keeping leftovers fresh means saving money and reducing food waste, while also avoiding fatty fast food. Pack leftovers immediately after dinner each night, and keep a dry, odor-free, and organized fridge with our storage system.

Follow these leftover storage tips for maximum freshness:

  1. Refrigerate leftovers as soon as possible after cooling down, and avoid over-packing the fridge. Cool air should circulate around the containers to keep food safe. Use a Snackvac to store leftovers in individual serving sizes and easily carry them to work or school the next day. Each family member can pack their lunch or snack with a different colored cap for easy identification.
  2. Avoid cross-contamination and keep the fridge at 34 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit at all times. Reheat any leftovers thoroughly to 165 degrees Fahrenheit or until hot and steaming.

  3. General tips for using your Tightvac: Do not use it in the microwave or oven. Remove food before reheating. We do not recommend freezing meat, fish, or wet goods in Tightvacs. Do not use it to carry liquids or store them on their side. Use a Tightvac to keep your food fresh and delicious, and say goodbye to wasted leftovers."
