I’m going to be annoyingly evangelical about this product! I have always been a Tupperware girl but the Stasher is superior in pretty much every way.
This is the Stasher:   https://www.stasherbag.com/

It’s a silicone, sealable pouch/bag that is safe in the microwave, in boiling water and even apparently in the oven! I have been freezing my favourite lunch soup in it, putting the pouch in a pan of boiling water to reheat, then eating straight from the pouch. No dirty pan or bowl to clean, just the Stasher bag and the spoon. And no plastic involved 👍. It also takes up very little space to store, and there’s no issue of looking for or losing lids, since it has the press-seal closure.

Anyway, I’m a bit of a fan-girl and you might be too once you try one 🤩

I love the idea of these but a bit put off by the price. Was thinking of getting them to freeze meat (to avoid plastic). Do you think freezing chicken breasts for example would work with them?

I have a different brand but same idea. I have three small and three large and they are constantly in use. I also love my beeswax wraps.

It’s rare I use glad wrap these days, or sandwich bags :-)

I have frozen chicken soup in them, I’m sure chicken breasts would be fine.

me too, same issue. I tend to buy bulk meat and then freeze in smaller freezer bags but would like to cut out that plastic. They dont look big enough for me though, ie if I buy 2 kg of mince and freeze it in two 1kg bags, or even 4 x 500g bags.....they look too small? or as PP said, a couple of chicken breasts? (and there's the price!)

good to hear the good reviews though

There is a bigger size, but of course more $$$ 🙁

I love the idea of these but they're so expensive. Has anyone tried the no-name ebay ones?
