How to Cook in a Stasher Bag

16.10.2020

Great news: reusable silicone Stasher bags not only help the planet (you can reuse them over and over again, unlike single-use plastics) but Stasher bags are made of pure platinum food- grade silicone that is safe to cook in. Go from the microwave to the oven. They're safe for sous vide and can take the chill of your freezer like a champ.


Go straight from freezer to the oven? Why yes, you can. Kick our feet up and grab a drink instead of stressing over dinner? Don't mind if we do. Grab your favorite Stasher bag (maybe one of our bundles to get you started?) and let’s get cooking.

Marinate
Marinate in Stasher to add flavor to your meat, fish, or vegetables without having to worry about leaks and spills.

Sous Vide
Sous vide is a method of cooking in which food is sealed in airtight bags then placed in water for longer than normal cooking times (usually one to six hours) at a regulated temperature much lower than normally used for cooking. The intent is to cook the item evenly, ensuring that the inside is properly cooked without overcooking the outside, and retain moisture.

Steam
Steam fresh or frozen veggies by loading them into a Stasher with olive oil and any herbs and spices (or go without, steaming with just water!). then place the bag in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Open carefully and enjoy.

Microwave
To reheat or steam fresh or frozen food in the microwave, simply leave your Stasher bag open to vent and handle with caution when removing. It'll be hot!

Store
Make meal time easy and store made-ahead portions in the fridge or prep a variety freezer meals for future use. Store a homemade pasta sauce made from summer tomatoes for a winter meal, or create your own healthy frozen dinner.
