Capflex Silicone Food Covers
Capflex are stretchy, flexible lids that can be used to cover almost any kitchen container, irregularly shaped object, or half cut fruits and vegetables. Perfect for storing food and drinks, they easily adapt to all types of dishes, bowls, and pans of almost any material, such as stainless steel, porcelain, glass, plastic, or ceramics to create a vacuum tight seal.
Capflex are stretchy and flexible food covers are an optimal multi-use alternative to traditional single-use products like plastic cling film, zip-top bags, and aluminum foil. Cling film easily twists and sticks together and does not always cover the full width of a container. Plastic film and bags should not be used in a microwave and cannot be used in the oven, while aluminum foil is not airtight, deteriorates against acidic foods like tomato sauce, and is not microwavable. Additionally, capflex are perfect for sealing irregularly shaped containers like pitchers with spouts, or for sealing the cut ends of fruits and vegetables.

Before first use, wash the lid in hot soapy water, rinse, and dry. Select a cover size that is slightly smaller than container size, as this will insure that the food is being properly sealed. For best adherence, the container rim should be smooth and dry of grease or water. Pull the lid tight over the opening of the container, making sure it clings to the sides for an adequate vacuum seal.
