The container is good for 1 pound coffee beans our ground.
Are the Vacs smell proof?
The patented system is able to preserve goods for 1 year and beyond by allowing products to breath and degas. The 2 way valve allows gas build up to slowly escape – without letting oxygen in. This is one of the main reasons it can preserve goods for long periods of time.
How does it work?
Yes - To open simply push the press button on the cap, and pull the cap off. To close, push the press button, no need to pump, push cap down onto the body and with this motion the cap volume of air is eliminated, creating a vacuum seal, it’s that simple!
Is this a vacuum sealed container?
The United States patent office granted the patent on a vacuum container – this container creates a partial vacuum – The same volume of air as the cap is removed and for human purposes this is enough to keep most goods fresh and edible for long periods of time. For the engineers out there technically speaking there is no vacuum until the cap is pulled upward without pressing the button. Either way the Vacs still keep goods fresher for longer.
Is it moisture and oxygen free?
Yes the container keeps moisture and oxygen out – these elements cannot enter the container unless you decide to take the cap off.
Are the Vacs durable? How long will they last?
Yes the Vacs are made with NSF & FDA approved PS # 6, this plastic is very strong. If properly cared for the Vacs can easily last for 10 years.
How should I clean the Vacs?
Hand wash only - Use mild or natural cleaners. Do not microwave or put in dishwasher. Always keep the interior of the cap and the top of the container clean. This will ensure easy open and closure.
