About this deal

Seal type – while not a hard and fast rule, we've seen press seals (where you push the bag's sides together) are more commonly used on PEVA bags, while zip seals (where you pull a plastic bar across to close the bag) appear more often on silicone freezer bags. Recyclability – both types can be recycled (though silicone recycling centres are more limited) so both are an eco-friendly alternative to standard resealable plastic bags. Ingredients can vary in values from brand to brand and therefore it would be impossible to give accurate information. It's likely that the bags have conformed to each other as they froze; gently pull them apart if needed. Turn your big batch of soup into convenient grab-and-go meals by freezing it in individual servings.

The larger 2-gallon size allows you to marinate several pounds of protein without the contents leaking in the freezer. Then, place a layer of Glad ® Press’n Seal ® directly on top of the soup to create an airtight barrier. With a 500ml capacity, they are the perfect size for one large or two smaller portions, they are great to have close to hand whenever you’re making a batch of soup and want some homemade ready meals to keep you going through the week.

See through – easy to see at a glance what’s inside, plus there is an area for you to label and note dates etc. Whether you're heading to the office, school, or a weekend getaway, we’ve got a variety of go-to options for convenient and mess-free storage. You can take food directly from the fridge or freezer and heat it in the microwave, for quick and simple cooking. Being heavy gauge and gusseted, filling these freezer bags is very easy because they stand upright of their own accord, leaving your hands free for pouring.

Ultimately, if you’re not using a plastic bag, it’s up to you to decide how you would like to freeze your soup. Then, place a layer of Glad ® Press’n Seal ® or Glad ® FreezerWrap on top of the soup to create a barrier. Functionality – silicone is able to withstand more extreme temperatures, and can be used in the oven or microwave, unlike PEVA. Hold the bag open with one hand and use your other hand to carefully fill the bag using a measuring cup. Since I had a few batches of pressure cooker beans in urgent need of freezing, I thought I'd share my favorite way to freeze soup, beans in their cooking liquid, and broth to both save space and make my weeknight meal prep a little easier.

Then reheat your soup on the stove over medium-high heat, adding water or broth to match the consistency you’d like. The advantage is that flat things take up way less space in a freezer than a bunch of odd-shaped containers, plus it's usually easier to find exactly the soup or beans you want for your dinner without digging into the deep and mysterious recesses of your freezer.

We fill the bags with water to their capacity and check for leaks throughout the seal ease of use test. Sturdy Soup ‘n’ Sauce Freezer Bags that stand upright of their own accord, making them really easy to fill because both hands are left free for pouring.

Soups with a creamy consistency, like potato or chowders, might not taste good after freezing because it affects the texture and makes potatoes mushy.You may still get some dribbles here and there, but at least they're contained inside the measuring cup.

Glass can be a healthier material because it does not release chemicals into your foods when heating up. Unfortunately, our Test Kitchen doesn't recommend it, as chunks of potatoes can become mealy after freezing.

The seal should be easy to close and durable enough that it won’t break (that defeats the purpose of a reusable bag). If you’re freezing soup containing vegetables or meat, you can expect that to last for 2–3 months in the freezer. Overall they are cheaper than the ones I bought before and the quality is OK although the label and date part are smaller. Odour – our tests have found bags of both types can have residual food smell after being used and cleaned.
