New age ‘Tupperware’: the ‘perfect food storage’ option?

There are many types of food storage containers, but here’s introducing EVAK, described as “the world’s first glass food storage system that removes air from the container”. Air takes out freshness…so EVAK takes out the air. Its creators have been in search of the “perfect food storage option” – perhaps they’ve found it?

Glass containers with airtight lids are obviously already readily available, but the EVAK food storage system goes one stage further. It consists of glass jars with lids which fit perfectly inside them. A twin-valve system forces the air out as the lid is pushed down, and lets users easily pull up and remove the lid.

It’s a simple procedure; just push down, then pull up; no buttons or levers.
EVAK is suitable for a range of dry foodstuffs that need to be kept fresh – coffee, pasta, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, herbs – and all it takes is pushing the lid down as far as it will go without crushing what’s inside. Doing this sucks all of the air out of the jar, leaving the food safe and sound in a sealed vacuum.

As an added bonus, the design ensures only glass and stainless steel come into contact with the foodstuff, preventing harsh plastics from shortening its shelf-life.
Ed Kilduff of Pollen Design developed the EVAK food storage system on the belief that “the longer your food is exposed to air, the faster it loses its flavour”.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign which raised $88,000, EVAK is now available to buy. Each jar ranges in price from $19.99 to $29.99.
