Zembag user manual

  • Check your potatoes regularly at least once a week for signs of spoilage. You can remove and add potatoes anytime during storage.
  • If you notice signs of sprouting, add a new caraway sachet.
  • You can gently hand wash the inner and outer layer of the Zembag at a low temperature (30°C), ideally by hand.

    New or early-season potatoes do not belong in Zembag!

    Remember, new or early-season potatoes are not meant to be stored, not even in Zembag! These potatoes do not have a developed skin and are therefore very susceptible to mold and rot. In addition, caraway oil damages them. By law, they must be labelled as 'new' and 'early-season'. Only mature late-season potatoes belong into Zembag.

    However, Mini Zembag can be used for short-term storage of new potatoes.
