There are so many things you can store — and cook— in the Stand Up Stasher. Here are 40 great ideas to get you started.
Dry goods in bulk - take the Stand Up Stasher to your grocery store and hit up the bulk bins for all your goods sans plastic! Stash beans, seeds, nuts, flour, pasta, coffee and more!
Salad - mason jar salads are kind of a thing these days, but you can avoid the weight, breakability and small opening of mason jars by filling your stasher with fresh greens and veggies (and use your pocket stasher for dressing!).
Herbs - Preserve the abundant flavors and aromas of your favorite herbs, especially those full, fluffy bundles of cilantro and parsley.
Freezer Foods - save your nut milks, pestos, baby foods and more by freezing them in an ice cube tray. Then, pop out those perfect little portions, stash them in your Stand Up Stasher and freeze ‘em until you’re ready to use ‘em.
Instant Pot & Slow Cooker Meals - Save yourself from scrubbing! The Stand Up Stasher fits perfectly inside your instant pot or slow cooker. So fill it with your curries, soups and stews, then drop it (like it's hot) in the pot to cook. This stasher’s wider opening allows for easy ladling, and once the goods are gone, just pop it in the dishwasher. Less mess, hell yes!
Liquids - Speaking of soups, the Stand Up Stasher is your best bag for storing sloshy liquids in the fridge or freezer.
