Do you eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and need a large container to store the leftover halves after a single meal? Do you often throw out fruits and vegetables you’ve started and left out because it rotted or oxidised? If you haven’t tried vacuum storing yet, read on to find out more about its advantages; we have no doubt that you will find several ways in which it can benefit your household.
Why vacuum pack?
Vacuum is an environment without oxygen, which is one of three elements bacteria and mould need in order to develop. By reducing oxygen levels in the vacuum containers you are creating conditions in which the foodstuffs stay fresh longer. For you, this means less food going bad and getting thrown out, and according to the 2016 European Commission survey, also saving up to 300 € a year.
How to vacuum pack?
Vacuum packing is simple. All you need is a vacuum container and a vacuum pump, which can be manual or electric, or you can just use a vacuum packing machine. Just a few pulls on the manual pump or a single press of a button on the electric pump or vacuuming machine will extract the air from the container and slow the development of bacteria and mould.

Cleaning vacuum containers
Vacuum containers can be washed by hand or in a dishwasher. Refrain from using powerful cleaning agents or rough sponges to avoid damaging the edges of the container or the gaskets and valves intended for the pump.
Though vacuum significantly slows the process of oxidation it cannot stop it completely; this is why vacuum packed foodstuffs should be kept in the refrigerator.
