If you’ve joined the sous vide movement then you know that the need for a quality, airtight storage bag is paramount to the success of the sous vide cooking process.
For this, many people rely on either a home vacuum sealer system like the FoodSaver V2244 we review here or heavy duty resealable freezer bags that can be purchased at any grocery store.
If, however, you want to cut down on the waste of these one-and-done bags, there are a number of reusable silicone food bags making their way into the market including one of our favorites – the Stasher 10-inch, 64.2-ounce reusable silicone sous vide bag. The only downside of the bag is its size, making it fine for a single steak or two servings of vegetables but not for larger cuts of meat.
Made of 100% pure platinum silicone, the Stasher series is billed as the world’s first fully functional, self-sealing, non-plastic bag. In addition to cutting down on unnecessary plastic waste, unlike traditional plastic bags, Stasher bags contain no BPA, no PVC, and no latex thereby keeping your food safe from contaminants.
To use the bags, simply place the ingredients inside the bag and close the pinch-lock seal. As with zipper top bags, we recommend submerging the bag in water as you seal the top as this will force excess air out of the bag and ensure that it will sink in the sous vide water bath without having to be weighed down.
Once done, simply throw the bag in the dishwasher and you are ready for the next use. The bag’s food-grade silicone is safe for use in the freezer, microwave, dishwasher, boiling water, and oven up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
