I have been seeing these reusable storage bags in stores and online. I am pretty interested in them, especially the durable silicone ones. They are certainly not inexpensive. For example, a Stasher or Zip-Top sandwich size bag is $12. A regular Ziploc is $0.1-0.15 – approximately 100 times difference.
There are cheaper brands than Stasher and Zip-Top, such as the Akeeko bags which are about 1/4th the price ($15 for 4 bags), so they will be 20 times more expensive than a Ziploc bag.
They are advertised to be used >5000 times. I like the idea of durable and reusable. The thing is that I am already reusing some of my Ziploc bags (depending what they were used for). While the 5000+ uses of these silicone bags sound great, I doubt I will live long enough to use each of them more than 200 times for freezer bags.
What do you think? Anyone has purchased and liked them? Did you only buy 1-2 to replace your regular sandwich bags? Or did you purchase 20+ of them to replace all occasions. Anyone not purchased them because they look like a bad idea? Thanks.
These are not Cookware, but not sure where I want to put this topic under.
