Farberware EcoFresh Food Storage Containers Review & Giveaway

At any given moment, there is probably at least a dozen food storage containers sitting in my fridge. My refrigerator is packed with fresh fruit, that is cut up and placed in containers at the beginning of the week for easy snack preparation, and of course, leftovers. I still use plastic containers as it is just a better choice for me with 4 kids under foot and because they are more affordable for us average folk. I just make sure that they are BPA free and I don't reheat food in them, just to be safe.

Farberware has a line of eco-friendly plastic food storage containers called EcoFresh that are not only BPA free, phthalate free and recyclable, but they are also biodegradable.

"FARBERWARE® EcoFresh food storage containers are made with EcoPure, which is a completely organic additive the promotes biodegradability without changing the structure and durability of the plastic while in use."

32-piece Platinum set in Aqua

EcoFresh has several container lines to choose from including Platinum, Silver, Eco, Classic and Canister. The Platinum series, which I received to review, is considered their premium series. It uses a vacuum tight inner-wall seal to keep food fresh. Instead of the traditional red and blue colors that many containers come in, these are available in four trendy colors: aqua, fern green, plum, and tangerine. Or you can even get a mix of all four colors in one set.



mmmm... strawberries.

The first detail that I really like about these is that even though there are six different container sizes, there are only two different lid sizes. I have bought food storage sets in the past where you would get three or more different lids and that just makes it so much more difficult to reach blindly into your cabinet and grab the correct lid out. The lids do press down fairly easy to create that nice seal and they come off easily as well. No prying necessary.


Heading off to the fridge.

My main use for these has been for fruit. The deep containers have been great for cut up cantaloupe and strawberries. I'd like to tell you that my fruit stayed fresh longer, but have you seen four young boys eat? Midweek I am off to the grocery store again to refill our fruit supply. Fruit never lasts long enough to spoil in this house. I have also been using some of the EcoFresh containers to store dry foods in the pantry. Mainly things like crackers and snacks for the kids. The last thing anyone wants is to reach into a bag and pull out a stale cracker, or worse, a stale cracker with an ant on it. Bleh! These keep our snacks fresh and crunchy inside and keep any stray ants outside. Plus it is really nice to be able to stack the containers and make some extra room in my pantry. Again, four boys.

Overall I have been extremely pleased with the Farberware EcoFresh containers. Not only do they look good, they function well and the prices are very reasonable. And I can rest a little easier knowing that there are no toxins like BPA leaching into our foods from the plastic.

Shop
All of the EcoFresh container sets are currently on sale at the EcoFresh Store. The Platinum 32 piece set is $39.99 (regularly $52.99) and the Platinum 20 piece set is $29.99 (regularly $42.99).

Please note that the opinions and views expressed in this review are my own and based on my personal experience with the product and/or company. I received free product to review.
