Stasher Life Hacks (for You & Planet Earth)
Make low-waste living a seamless part of your daily routine by using your Stasher bags to their full potential.
Bring on the heat. Unlike plastic, Stasher bags take the heat — up to 425° Fahrenheit. With food grade, platinum silicone you get diehard durability and never have to worry about harmful chemicals coming between you and your food — no BPA, BPS, lead, latex, or phthalates. High heat tolerance means:
- Easy cleanup. Pop Stasher bags in the dishwasher for cleaning between uses. It’s that simple.
- Cook your way. From microwave to oven, boiling water, or sous vide machine — Stasher bags multitask like crazy (in a good way) for cooking and reheating food.
Make the most of your food. These hacks minimize waste by properly preserving food, and also save you money on groceries!
- Ice is nice. Veggies, fruits, smoothie packs, meals, and more — they all chill well in Stasher bags, sans the freezer burn, by simply releasing air from the bag while pinching the leak-free Pinch-Loc™ seal to securely close.
- More greens, please. Preserve herbs and greens in a variety of ways. Regrow veggies scraps and store them in your Stasher bags once harvested for an endless garden of green goodness.
- Buy in bulk. Keep a supply of Stasher bags with your reusable grocery bags and frequent stores with bulk bins — it saves on waste (and cost) for pantry staples. Save this handy guide with tare weights of Stasher bag and bowl sizes.
