Re: Storage Containers

I don't know how people survived before zip lock plastic bags. We store dry goods (rice, spaghetti noodles, cat food, M & M's, etc) in those OXO's on shelves. Most other stuff goes in zip lock bags. Everything from left over pork chops to rolls of paper towels.

Re: Storage Containers

Sorry about that, bene505... I mistakenly thought the Foodtown's carry similar inventory. Checked the NY stores online, and it doesn't look like they have Lock & Lock's in your neighborhood.

Re: Storage Containers

After lots of measuring and counting, we found that Tupperware had the right sizes of containers for us. Ordering was quick and simple on-line in the US.

cheers,
Nick.

Re: Storage Containers

For the longer trips I ended up using the plastic storage that allows you to suck the air out of it so it last longer and it tastes better.

Re: Storage Containers

We buy stuff like flour, rice, pasta, in LARGE amounts like 50 lbs bags of rice ect and pasta by the case and reseal with foodsaver vacume sealer in bags with a amount to last a month or so, when we need them we go to our storage list and grab another bag. It's great the amount of stuff you can store when its vacume sealed, it will fit most anywhere even the engine room !!and leaks dont matter much cus there in plastic sealed !! works for us ! and runs on our 2500 inverter also!!

Re: Storage Containers

We once had a rat on board. It chewed through Tupperware, which I love otherwise. et a cat. Square is best and hard plastic containers can be found through emergency food suppliers.

Re: Storage Containers

We use a variety of storage devices, vacuum being the best to maintain food intergity. We use Lock and Lock and FreshVac ( Welcome To freshvac™ Vacuum Food Storage ) as well. Don Casey recommends the Pump and Seal ( www.pump-n-seal.com/ ). We have no aversion to glass aboard.
