After I committed to reducing my use of plastic and one-time-use product waste, there was one thing I always found that I missed. While it was easy enough to switch out my plastic tupperware for durable (and non-toxic) glass containers, it took a little more effort not to gravitate back to plastic snack bags on the go. While they definitely aren’t good for the environment, they are a huge space-saver and let’s face it — convenient.
Which is why I was so excited when one of my favorite brands, W&P Designs, released Porter Bags — a silicone reusable container for cooking, freezing, steaming, preserving, storing, and sous-viding. You may remember our long-standing favorite Porter Mug, which we’ve customized with our logo and gifted to our team and our clients. W+P consistently merges form and function to create beautiful pieces we use each and every day (they seriously look so good sitting on the counter).
Why do we love these so much? In a simple answer: versatility. Because they have more than one use, they are incredibly versatile for both cooking and storage.
When my schedule is full, it’s so convenient to be able to meal prep and cook in ONE bag. It’s as simple as taking the bag from the fridge, putting it into a pot of boiling water, plating my food once it’s cooked, and then placing the bag in the dishwasher to be washed. Can it get any more streamlined than that?! It’s been such a time saver when I have back-to-back client calls and little free time.
All the Details:
- Porter Bags are microwave, freezer, + dishwasher safe
- Made of 100% food-grade silicone with no chemicals, glues, or adhesive
- With their flat-bottom design, these bags are free-standing!
- They come in 5 classic colors — we love the cream
