The Tight Vac 29 Liter 3 Oz Mini Vac Storage Container is another option for effective storage, but it’s important to evaluate the marketing claims and actual functionality. Here’s a breakdown:
Vacuum Sealing: The Tight Vac creates a partial vacuum by removing the same volume of air as the cap, but it is not a complete vacuum. The partial vacuum created is sufficient to keep most goods fresh and edible for extended periods. However, it’s important to note that the container does not vacuum out all oxygen, and oxygen will still be present inside.
Smell Proof: While the Tightvac system can preserve goods for extended periods by allowing them to breathe and degas, it is not entirely smell proof. Most food items are smell-proof inside the container, but certain products like freshly roasted coffee and medical herbs may release their odor. The 2-way valve allows gas build-up to escape gradually without letting oxygen in. For sticky and smelly substances, it’s recommended to use a strong zip lock bag inside the container to contain the smell and keep the areas where the body and cap meet clean.
Moisture and Oxygen: The Tightvac system effectively keeps moisture and oxygen out of the container as long as the cap remains on. However, the marketing language may give the impression of an oxygen-free environment, when in reality, there will still be oxygen inside the container.
Durability: The Vacs are made with strong NSF and FDA-approved PS #6 plastic, ensuring their durability during shipping and handling. If your Vac arrives damaged, it’s recommended to report it immediately for a replacement.
Cap Fitting: Different sizes and styles of Vacs may have slightly looser or tighter fitting caps. The functionality of the cap is not determined by its tightness, and loose caps function just as effectively. Caps may tighten over time and with regular use.
Cleaning: The Vacs should be hand-washed using mild or natural cleaners. They should not be microwaved or put in the dishwasher. Keeping the interior of the cap and the top of the container clean ensures easy opening and closure.
The Tight Vac 29 Liter 3 Oz Mini Vac Storage Container is also made in China. Despite the marketing claims, it still offers value as an inexpensive bulk container, but it’s important to be aware of its limitations and adjust expectations accordingly.
