The benefits of silicone bags instead of plastic bags are clear — they’re reusable, machine washable, sturdier, handle extreme temperatures with ease and offer a tighter seal. All these things combined makes for a product that’s not only better at what it does than traditional, disposable plastic bags, but also more economical (you won’t be re-stocking silicone every couple months). This is why we were excited a few years back when Stasher released platinum silicone food storage, and why we’re more interested in Zip Top’ Kickstarter.
An endeavor from Austin, Texas-based Finell, Zip Top also uses 100 percent platinum silicone (oven and microwave-safe) with an easy zip shut top, but it takes food storage and utility a step further — these silicone containers, coming in four different sizes, stand up and keep themselves open when you’re dumping leftovers (or your dinner for a sous vide bath) in them. Not only that, the brand promises a less flimsy build on the whole which is almost never a bad thing.
The Kickstarter campaign started a little over a week ago and has already accrued funds north of $140,000 at a goal of only $20,000. A $22 pledge gets you one set of three eco-friendly food storage options.
