That's why we asked our culinary team to test out Stasher bags.

THE CLAIM: "Stasher’s 100% pure platinum food grade silicone bags are the healthy alternative to plastic. Easy to use, easy to clean, reusable and non-toxic, and it’s helping the world give up its plastic bag habit. Stasher can take the heat, the cold, and anything else your kitchen dishes out. Thanks to the patented airtight seal, all of your food’s nutrients, flavors and juices stay locked in."

To our senior culinary producer Jeanette Donnarumma's eye, the leak-proof promise could also make them an ideal choice for horizontal food storage!
