FoodSaver Designer Canister Set
Too many faults to be rated high
Been using food saver products since 1999. More than half the time the vacuumed bags leak and lose the seal. Have tried all the tricks recommended by Food Saver; paper towel for wet foods, freeze first, etc but still have problems. Every one of my canisters, and I have bought extra have cracked bottoms and will not hold a vacuum. Fill it 1/4 way and vacuum it down. See the air leak into the canister. When it works it is great but success is rare.
Exception is the hard to find individual seal caps that used to be available but can't find any more. They would be great for glass jars and hold a vacuum indefinitely. Fix the container cracking problem!

Nice for delicates and coffee
I really like these canisters for delicate food that crushes easily, and also for ground coffee. Comes out just as fresh as when we bought it.

Product works as described
I use it for storage of grated cheese, brown sugar . The larger containers are storage of cooked items , pot roast, soups etc.

This is a good product but the plastic seems easy to break. Be careful how you handle it or it won't last long. I use it to store excess staples, i.e., rice, oatmeal, grits, etc.
