4 Reasons To Stock Your Kitchen With Ziploc … + 1 Baking Champ’s Recipe (Win!)

June 26, 2023

Summer’s delicious bounty means a new need to store food well—we definitely don’t want those pricey berries we bought to go mushy before we have a chance to enjoy them. New Ziploc® Endurables to the rescue! Below, four top reasons to stock your kitchen with this incredible (and ultra-reusable) line of silicone pouches and containers, available at key retailers like Walmart, Amazon and Metro, plus a make-at-home recipe by Raufikat Oyawoye-Salami, winner of the Great Canadian Baking Show! —Vita Daily

VERSATILE & DURABLE: Made with durable and reusable platinum silicone, Ziploc® Endurables won’t crack or break under extreme temperatures, which enables a wide variety of use cases: sous vide, boil, steam, microwave, freeze in sub-zero temperatures, or bake up to 425°F.

REUSABLE: Dishwasher safe (on both the top and bottom racks) makes for easy cleaning; Ziploc® Endurables are designed to be used and reused again and again. Mindfully made without BPA or Phthalates.

DESIGN FEATURES: Secure Seal Technology helps keep food fresh while stored and frozen, while Easy Open Tabs make opening a cinch. Cool Grab Tabs allow for easy handling after heating.

VARIOUS SIZES: With two forms and four sizes, Ziploc® Endurables offer a range of convenient meal prep solutions. Whether cooking steak for the entire family or a breakfast casserole all in the same container, there is a perfect size for every dish!


Raufikat Oyawoye’s Nigerian Coconut Rice + Chicken Dish

Serves 2

For the chicken:

2 chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon chicken broth powder
1 teaspoon black pepper

For the rice:

3/4 cup basmati rice, washed until water runs clear, then drained

  3. In a Medium Endurables™ Container, combine coconut milk, water, chicken broth powder and rice
  4. Place the Endurables™ Container on a Microwave-safe dish and microwave for 4-5 minutes, until the coconut milk is boiling. Ensure the zipper is left open 2.5cm to vent while in the microwave

  6. Add the peppers, onions, oil, garlic and coconut to the rice, mix well
  7. Spread the chicken on top of the rice
  8. Place in the oven for 30 minutes, with the zipper open 2.5cm to vent

    In the summer, favourite meal prep is marinated chicken breast or cutlets and then grilling them on the BBQ with some lovely rice pilaf and grilled veggies.

    these look wonderful! they would be great for marinating meats before cooking and then a separate set for storing to add to pasta, sauces, etc., for a meal.
