There’s nothing more soothing than re-organising your pantry, fridge or anywhere else that needs serious re-organising. Honestly, there isn’t. To see the before and after effects, makes you weep, fall at your knees and swear that you’ll never ever get to that ‘stuff-everything-in-there-as-much-as-you-can’ stage ever again. I was given a wonderful wonderful opportunity to review Starmaid‘s latest range of containers, and they went straight to my pantry, fridge and garage.
I received the Starmaid “Clear Edge”, “Fresh Seal” and “Fridge Mate” range of containers and a huge 30L Storemate. What a blessing, I tell ya. I wish I could show you guys a deluge of photos, but you’ll have to content yourselves with just these…
I had just bought a huge lettuce, and was so glad that I could use the 4L ‘fridge mate” to store it, instead of leaving it in the bag. It has an aeroflow tray and vents that allows for longer life storage. I also used the ‘clear edge’ containers to store my Bolognaise Sauce (pre-made for school lunches). I put the second one in the freezer for another day.
I was just so glad to know that all of these containers… were BPA Free. I can’t tell you, how relieved I was to see that. Mums, BPA is bad bad bad for us. When BPA is leached onto our food, through repeated wear/tear/ and use of dishwashers and microwaves, it is known to promote human breast cancer cell growth amongst other effects (source). Ugh! No thanks!
Also… I was 100% surprised to see that all these were.. MADE IN AUSTRALIA. Happy? Yes. Very.
