So far so good. The container is made out of light weight plastic but it seems to hold up well. The lid fits perfectly and if you are not pushing the button then you can feel the suction that the lid creates. I have not had any freshness issues when using this container so it must be air tight.
I received the product at a discount or for free for my honest and unbiased review.
4.0 out of 5 starsSo far so good
So far so good I don't have any "coffee" to put in and see how it works I've Ben told I can fit a zip in it I'll see
Perfect smell-proof container for my ground dried vegetables.
I partake in vegetables that have a distinct smell that some people dislike. Out of respect for these individuals, I decided to store my vegetables within a smell-proof container. I searched a long time, and decided to buy this container.
To my great pleasure, this container completely shuts down the pungent vegetable smell.
Great size to throw into a backpack, too.
One more thing. Sometimes, I like to light my vegetables on fire. When I do this, I usually use a glass tool. This glass tool can be exceptionally smelly, especially because we are dealing not only with the smell of the vegetables themselves, but also with the smell of burnt vegetables.
The point is, there is also plenty of room to store your glass vegetable burning tools in, and the container is also capable of hiding this, in my opinion more powerful, smell.
Been using these for many years! They are well-made, durable, finished-off nice and clean, well-packaged, and well-priced. Most importantly, they do the job! A nice semi-vacuum is easily created inside when the top is put back on.....keeping herbs, or other contents, in a semi-vacuum....aiding in preservation of freshness and diminishing escaping odors/scents in a huge way.
5.0 out of 5 starsMine works PERFECTLY at sealing in odors.
I wanted a large enough container to fit my needs. I picked one that sounded pretty good by the size measurements they give.
I got mine today, and it is perfect for my needs. It is a great size for me and the air-tight seal is VERY air-tight. If the outside is clean, you cannot smell it's contents at all.
Here are some rough "outer" dimensions:
Width (at it's widest): 3 3/8 inches.
Height: 5 5/8 inches.
Again, these are rough, outer dimensions, just to give you an idea of it's size. The walls are not that thick, so the inner dimensions shouldn't be much smaller.
I hope this helps someone. ^_^
Works great. No matter what you put in it you cannot detect any aroma.
A nice way to store your coffee
sweet container for my coffee. I have a keurig now, so I don't use beans as much as I used to. This device is sort of a manual vacuum seal, but I think it does a good job and doesn't cost too much. They look sharp, but the plastic is a little thinner than I was expecting. I'm not sure that it would work any better than those airtight jars with the rubber gasket, but I think this one looks really cool and I like the button press air seal.
Back in the day I had a coffee storage product that was battery-powered and physically created a vacuum by pumping air out of the container every time it was used… It worked great but eventually died and I was disappointed when I could not find it available anywhere so I tried this one and was pleasantly surprised. If I ever need more coffee storage room I'll be sure to buy another one of these. Excellent gift idea for the coffee aficionado in your circle of family and friends.

Good container. Plastic is thin but gets the job done.
The container arrived quickly and works better than I'd hoped.

Works pretty well.
Works pretty well. Sometimes I feel like the vacuum seal could be a bit tighter. I would say this is probably the perfect size. Any bigger and it's too big, smaller would be worthless. Delivered on time and as advertised.

Its my coffee, dont touch it!
After reading a few reviews on this product, I was hesitant to purchase it but ended up pulling the trigger. What a nifty little gadget. My coffee is very pungent, I mean the most pungent coffee there is in the world, and this thing contains the smell almost as good as vacuum sealing the damn pungent coffee! I like to throw things around when I'm done with them so I was slightly concerned about the integrity of the plastic. I have had it for about a month now and am pleased to say the product has held up The size is perfect for me. This thing can hold around one ounce of fluffy pungent coffee or it can hold a coffee dug out, coffee lighter and a bag of fluffy coffee. I am thinking about buying another one.
Great value and performance!
We grind a whole bag of beans and it stays super fresh! Very happy with this container.
This is my first time trying out Tightvac products and this stuff really keeps everything fresh. I got a little bit lost with the actual size of the thing, maybe it would have been better to give me the size dimensions and the cubic dimensions.
My beans seem super happy.
