I do a lot of cooking and meal prep for the week because I'm a bit of a health and fitness nut. I've also been slowly moving closer to using more and more natural products, rather than chemicals. I've wanted to start making the switch from plastic containers to something safer and silicone bags seem to fit the bill.
I like that the bags are reusable, unlike the zip top baggies we usually grab. Plus unlike the disposable bags, these ones are safe for the dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer.
The bag is really thick and well made. I can tell it's going to be durable and last a long time. The bar was really hard to remove at first. I actually had to get my husband to take it off for me and it was hard to get back on too, but I was able to do that. I could also take it back off the second time. It appears to loosen up after a few times and allow for easier removal and attaching. One of the good things about it being on tight though is that it seals air out and helps the bags not leak. I filled mine up with water just to make sure (because who wants to test that out with food they just spent time making) and it didn't leak a all. I turned it every which way and not a drop came out.
While the bag is a little flimsy trying to stand on it's own with no food inside of it, as soon as it has a little weight inside it stands up perfectly. You don't even need the bar - it's safe to stand up and not tip and spill everything.
The bag also has measurements on one side, so you can keep track of how much you're putting inside. Since I meal prep and usually measure out portions, this is perfect for us. The other side of the bag has a 'max' marker, so that you don't overfill.
Overall, I'm very happy with this silicone bag. It's thick and well made, doesn't leak and it can stand on it's own. Plus it can go just about everywhere you would need it to - from freezer to oven.
