Reusable Plastic Baggies Are the Lunchtime Solution You’ve Needed Forever

  Reusable Plastic Baggies Are the Lunchtime Solution You’ve Needed Forever I'm having a non-soggy sandwich with a side of saving the environment for lunch. *Takes out Stasher bag* Plastic bags have been a staple of paper-bag lunches for who knows how long—eternity, maybe. It turns out there's a better alternative, though, to packing snacks and meals in Ziploc baggies and hoping for the best when you open them up hours later. Stasher, a plastic-free storage-bag manufacturer, makes reusable silicone bags that serve the same function as the baggies we all grew up with but in a more economical, environmentally-friendly, and vibrant way. The storage bags come in snack size ($9.99 on Amazon), standard sandwich-bag size ($11.99 on Amazon), and half-gallon size ($19.95 on Amazon), in an array of fun colors. Honestly, I wish I could go back to elementary school and roll up to the cafeteria with one of these. That would definitely have made for a better lunchtime rep than "pickle girl.

OXO Storage Containers

"I always want, but never pull the trigger on, those storage containers that will organize my pantry," says Epi digital director David Tamarkin. The airtight plastic OXO ones are the gold standard for storing dry ingredients like flour, rice, pasta, nuts, and sugar. Each set comes with 10 containers varying in size from .3-quart to 4-quart, and are available with white plastic lids or fancy stainless steel ones.

ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide

Ah, the Joule. Social media manager Rachel Karten is eyeing this immersion circulator that we tested last year and deemed the best sous vide for beginners. One of the reasons it's received so many accolades is because it's controlled completely through a Bluetooth app on your phone. You put it in a pot of water, it heats the water to your desired temperature, then holds that temperature until whatever you're cooking is done. (Don't worry, it also tell you how long to cook different meats, the suggested temperature, and when your food is done.) It just might be the secret to perfectly cooked steak.

Robot Vacuum

Basically everyone on staff is hoping for some Prime Day robot vacuum deals. Yes, we want one because it cleans your floor without you doing any of the work, but we also think there are some real kitchen chores waiting to be hacked with one of these little guys. Has anyone ever had their robot vacuum carry their dishes from the dining room to the kitchen, or just bring food to someone in another room? Discount-depending, we'll report back and let you know.

Food Processor

The thing about food processors is that you either have one that's old and needs to be replaced, or you never got around to buying one in the first place. Most of us on staff are in the first camp, while a few of us who live in tiny apartments don't have room for full-size ones and are in the market for a mini. We're gunning for either the Cuisinart 11-cup food processor or the KitchenAid mini. If we had the storage space for the Breville SousChef, we'd go for that too. Maybe if the price is right.

When Is Prime Day ? What to Buy (and Avoid). Amazon Prime Day officially kicks off July 16, and while the e-commerce giant is already offering some pretty great early Prime Day deals, not every discount you come across will be a true money saver. Here ' s why.

GreenPan Nonstick Skillet

Senior visuals editor Chelsea Kyle is waiting to see if the Padova nonstick skillet set by GreenPan is included in Prime sales. Yes, the white and light blue color palette will photograph beautifully, but the chemical-free GreenPan was also one of the top performers in our nonstick skillet test.

Houseplants

Well, apparently you can buy indoor plants on Amazon now. Audience development manager Erika Owen wants to give Amazon Plant—a few items of which are reserved for Prime members—a chance, and is looking for some planters to go with any succulents, snake plants, and the like.

Milk Steaming Wand

Don't underestimate the power of a handheld milk frother, another item on Chelsea's wishlist, and the secret to turning your morning coffeemaker pour into a barista-worthy cup. The PowerLix MilkPro has 4.5 stars on Amazon (out of 2,400-plus reviews), and customers tout it as the best alternative to a blender for making bulletproof coffee. People have also used it for making matcha, foamy hot chocolate, and a good old latté.

Vitamix Blender

A Vitamix is one of those things that we're always waiting for a discount on given its $400-plus price point. The models and functionalities differ (see our Vitamix Buying Guide to learn more), but as long as it crushes ice, makes a creamy smoothie, and is easy to clean, we'll take it.

Yes, you can stop snoring. Here's how. .
Finally sleep soundly (and silently). Snoring is one of humanity’s great uniters: We’ve all lost sleep from someone sawing logs in the next room. In fact, one Italian study interviewed thousands of participants and found that nearly one fifth of the subjects snored habitually.
