They're good for anything and everything that needs to be in ...
I own several of these containers in several sizes and I swear by them. They're good for anything and everything that needs to be in darkness and air-tight
Absolutely one of the best purchases ever!!
These storage containers are AWESOME!! I have probably 15 of them now. Black ones for coffee beans & clear ones for loose tea, raw sugar, lentils, cous cous, etc. Wish I could afford to purchase an entire pantry full! Eventually will.
It really keeps coffee fresh! It's perfect when you have several different cans of coffee open and aren't using the same every day. I noticed a difference between using this and the original can w/in a month.
Okay, I am not a maniac when it comes to vacuum sealing, but these are convenient, attractive, easy to use, and keep coffee as fresh as I need it to be. No smell escapes, which tells me it's okay. I also use it for my gelatin protein powder, as it can "turn" if exposed to excess moisture. With that I prefer to keep the larger amount in two canisters, only one of which I open daily.

Great For the Right Reasons
I've already got six Tightvacs and am buying four more today. They do a good job of slowing the staling rate for very fresh whole beans.
After opening container for a few minutes the smell permeated the entire room and took 10 minutes(at least) to leave.
Great coffee tin to replace the thermos in most lunchboxes for great coffee anytime!
Keeps coffee fresh! I bring this from home to work to make coffee for me and my work friends! perfect size to replace the thermos in your lunch box so it's great to throw into your lunch box if you don't use the thermos so you can make fresh coffee at work anytime!
this device is great for keeping smell confined
this device is great for keeping smell confined, i am a medical mjj patient and this keeps my medicine out of plain view and prevents any smell from escaping. my stash is extremely smelly, once i close this with the vaccum seal, the smell literally vanishes, and cannot be smelled at all until i open it again, couldnt be happier, highly recommend
this little container works better than I expected. When opening the package I thought I got ripped off because it just feels like a cheap plastic cylinder. However it is airtight and you really can't smell anything until you open it. I'd even recommend opening it outside because you might think the stuff inside isn't that stinky since you can put your nose right up to it and smell nothing, but then you open it and the whole house stinks.

Excellent Choice For Tea, Too
I'm using mine for loose tea, and it will hold an 8 oz of tea, without being 'over-filled". Keeps the air out, and the scent of the tea in. If I ever alternate teas, I wouldn't hesitate to add another Tightvac to my cupboard.
This product does exactly what it describes which is quite nice. It has a significant amount of storage space so you could theoretically grind 1 to 2 pounds of coffee and store it in this product (personally I enjoy grinding it each time so I've yet to do this). You hear the hiss of air being expelled from the container as you replace the lid which is pleasant to hear. As many reviews stated, this isn't a true vacuum seal, but there is little air left when you close the lid and it allows this air to seep out without any coming back into the machine. I have left a small amount of ground coffee (2 tablespoons) for around 2 weeks to test out if it remained fresh, and I was quite pleased with the result. This container has size, it keeps coffee fresh, and it is fairly durable.

Very cool, works well
Exactly what A home coffee roaster needs, or others who can buy fresh whole bean.

Simple concept but works great.
Keeps coffee fresh, and easier to dispense using a spoon, than with coffee in a bag. Simple concept but works great.
