Is the Breadvac patented system easy to use? How does it work?
YES its easy TO OPEN Simply - 1. Grip the handle and put your thumb on the press button 2. Keep the button pressed down, no need to pump & twist cap to the left 3. Pull cap up and remove.
TO CLOSE - 1. Grip the handle and put thumb on the press button – keep button pressed 2. Align cap arrows with buttons on the body (Always be sure to keep the cap level) 3. Lower the cap down and twist to the right to lock the cap into position. As the cap is pushed down onto the body, the cap volume of air is eliminated, creating a vacuum seal, it’s that simple!
Note: When Breadvacs are new – Caps are loose and will get tighter fitting as the container is used. If you are carrying heavier items such as 2.5 pounds of coffee we suggest using a piece of tape to hold the cap in the locked position. Over time and prolonged use the cap will become tight fitting. Looser caps function exactly the same as tight ones – meaning the seal is not compromised.
Is this a vacuum sealed container?
The United States patent office granted us a patent on a vacuum container – Our Vacs create 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 will keep goods fresher for longer and prevent weevil & bug infestations. This reality is why globally we have sold over 10 million Vacs without advertising. No batteries or electricity required!
Are the Vacs smell proof?
The Breadvac patented system is able to preserve goods for 1 year and beyond by allowing products to breath and degas. Almost all food goods are smell proof inside the Vacs , however some products like freshly roasted coffee and medical herbs may degas, leaking there odor. Our 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.
Note: Medical herbs that are sticky & smelly we recommend using a strong zip lock bag inside the Vac. This helps contain the smell and keeps the area clean where the body and the cap meet. This is essential to create a smell proof situation. The sticky resin often created by these products can compromise the open and close system, causing the caps to crack when opening and closing under such pressure of a glue like substance. Keep these areas free from resin buildup. Use a product like Grundge off. Thus maximizing the efficiency of use and longevity of the Vacs.
Is it moisture and oxygen free?
Yes the Breadvac patented system 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 and BPA free. These days shipping methods are very rough, packages being thrown, automated systems dropping huge parcels on top of smaller ones. If your Vac arrives damaged please report this IMMEDIATELY UPON RECIEPT for a part or full replacement.
My cap seems loose?
We offer 10 different sizes and 3 styles of Vacs – Solid – Clear and Tint. Often a Solid & Tint Vac will have a slightly looser fitting cap then a clear model. It is a misconception that a tighter fitting cap is working better or holding more of a seal. Loose caps function just as well and will tighten with time and use.
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.
What does NSF International certified mean?
Recognized by regulatory agencies at the local, state, federal and international level, NSF International certification demonstrates that a product complies with all standard requirements. NSF conducts yearly manufacturing facility audits and product testing to verify that the product continues to comply with the standards set by the FDA. In our case all packaging claims have been tested. The plastics we use have been tested for food safety and our manufacturing facility has been visited and complies with all standards.
