- Tea Storage
works as described...
item as described, nice small vitamin box for everyday travel use, Nice tight seal. If your looking for a reliable 100% vacuum tight seal for medicinal herbs you might want to look elswhere
Worth the buy
Holds odor fairly well. The vacuum seal is interesting. I can pull the top off even without pressing the release button; it's more difficult and there is more resistance, but it's definitely doable. However, you do need to press the button to place the cap on. Despite this, I can't smell any strong odor from the outside of the inside material. If the Minivac is stashed inside another container that does have an odor, the odor will cling slightly to the outside of the Minivac, but will dissipate after 15-30 minutes.
this works better than a mason jar
In terms of smell control, this works better than a mason jar. The small, included deodorizing charcoal filter packet probably helps as well. Very discreet container with the exception of the sticker on top which I peeled off - and the sticker residue was difficult to remove. Impressed with the effectiveness of the smell control.

Great For Tea
When I need a small amount of tea I grab a Mini Vac. It's perfect.

It keeps everything fresh as can be. I got one for my Mom!
If you want to store dry herb and to contain its smell, the TightVac is perfect! The container’s capacity is accommodating and can hold in tons of herb you may think won’t fit!
If you have spices that you want to keep fresh...and in some cases limit the smell...the TightVac units are by far the best choice. I've tried tupperware, plastic boxes, and a variety of other "seal-able" options...none of which work consistently and/or very well. The TightVac canisters have been easy to use and 'lock tight' keeping contents fresh and odor free. These cannisters come in various sizes, so it is relatively easy to find one that fits your need. I have some TightVacs that are coming up on 18 months old...and get frequent open/close usage. They still seal tightly.
keeps all smells inside, everything inside stays fresh. currently at one month and counting. would recommend highly

Pretty tight. Not sure though if the amount of ...
Pretty tight. Air pressure works as expected. :) The container looks nice, and it's easy to use. I am not sure though if the approach really improves the taste/odor of coffee.
By: Michael Partenskii
This works great. No smell
You can store anything in here and you will not smell it. It beats having to use a canning jar. I highly recommend this product.
Diggin the vacuum seal. I've got 3 of them. I need to get more!
Great over all product. I would suggest to friends and family.
Great production. I cannot be more please. I highly recommend this production. It keeps my herbs nice and fresh. The delivery was prompt.
By: Janet V. Simmons
Not a "pump" type vacuum as I mistakenly thought but still unique and very functional. The vacuum aspect is what holds the lid on. If it turns out to be at least moderately durable, I will definitely buy another.
Great for herbs on the go
Nice self closing container, does a good job at staying closed and keeping in contents. It doesn't seem to be completely smell proof but gets the job done. Makes for a good portable herb kit.
Did the job
Keeps your green smell to a minimum as it says it would. No longer smoke so I have no need for it but still a nice handy container.

MUST HAVE!!! CONTAINS SMELL!!! PERFECT FOR TRAVEL
I have found the perfect place to get my supplies without being seen at the head shop by peers that dont live this lifestyle.
By: BIG SKIN
I love this little container. Anything you put in it will remain tightly sealed, keeping the product fresh with no chance of any odor escaping.
Contains all odors!
Whenever I'm going out to pick something up I always put in there and it contains all the smell so when I walk in my house I don't smell like something I shouldn't.
It works, I expected a little beefier unit based on other reviews. Seems to keep the stink down, I will update after a it more use.

Great storage container
Keeps freshly ground coffee really fresh . Perfect size to store a few days worth of coffee.
By: Pam P
Works really well
My ummmm *herbs* have quite a powerful odor, and this helps mask it completely while keeping them fresh. I will probably order another one.
By: Anne F
Amazing product! Love it!
By: Bradley Greene
I have read this container does not create a vacuum, that would incorrect.You must press a button to add or remove the top of the container. It does create a very nice vacuum. It works perfect for what it was designed to do. If this one breaks, I will buy another.
Love this thing!
Great for storing goods you don't want to smell. Inconspicuous design.
A little too big for my liking but overall pretty good does have a decent seal
Perfect for Coffee!
By: Tara drobeck
Great product, very happy with my purchase.
I use these for storing some herbs and they do the job perfectly well. It's dark, obviously, so you don't have to worry about lights getting in, and they also do a fantastic job of keeping out smell.
Its pretty big. I like it does just as advertised. I would recommend to a friend. Quick shipping. Durable product.
By: Marvin Caban Acosta
I like it.....
We put our coffee in here, seems to work ok. You can only use the bottom part to store, the top has to stay empty in order to close and seal properly. Just watch that you buy the size you need, which is probably a bigger unit then you think.... I wouldn't say it is completely smell proof though! Close! Keeps the grounds fresh as reported.
Keeps LOUD AND SOFT
Absolutely love this product better than the ole Ball © Jar and ziplock bag ever will keep up the excellent work.
Wrote to the seller who immediately made it good! LOVE this product
I got one originally that was sticky, did not want to open, so I was bummed. Wrote to the seller who immediately made it good! LOVE this product, have a few already and planning to get more. THIS product is AWESOME!
Great ground espresso coffee container.
Works as advertised. Seems to keep the ground coffee fresh for several days. I only grind small batches.
Perfect for holding ground coffee
Holds just the right amount of ground coffee. Thought I might need the bigger one but no, this size is great
Keeps coffee fresh!
As others have stated, this is canister does not remove all air from the inside. It does remove most air and allows the fresh coffee beans to degas. If you are reading this and looking for a way to keep ground coffee or coffee beans fresh for months and months then you will be disappointed. The general rule for coffee is the rule of 15. 15 months for green coffee (unroasted), 15 days for coffee beans, 15 minutes for ground coffee. Can you still make coffee with the beans or ground coffee after these times and still drink a good cup? It all depends on your pallet. There are certain coffees that I think hold up better than others, but it is best to follow these rules for the best cup possible. It is best to keep beans whole and grind per cup/pot of coffee. Don't store in the freezer. This won't prolong freshness and will instead cause beans to absorb moisture and go bad more quickly. Keep in your cabinet out of the light. Overall, I would highly recommend this product for the price and the job it does.
By: Jimmi JoJo
Keeps my food fresh way longer. Would definitely recommend. The free vac was great, thanks!
Lightweight, good seal, easy to clean
I bought one of these to hold a specific tea in. Soon, I bought a second for work. Now I have a total of 6. This is a great canister for looseleaf tea if you buy a lot. The smaller ones might be better if you normally only keep 4 oz or so on hand. The seal is good and easy to work. The canisters are lightweight and easy to clean. The label on top has some mighty strong adhesive, but Goo Gone cleaned it up without marring the surface in any way.

Great stash can
It seals really good. No smell from the contents of the can get out. Great for hiding smelly stuff. Overall good storage for hiding the smell of anything you want.
Stores my product perfectly, no loss of moisture, and spices and herbs of all of my herbage stay fresh as can be!!!
By: Wicked Game
When I buy my Granola in bulk the TV-3 is a great way to store it. The push button cap makes it so easy to make my breakfast each morning and it keeps my granola fresh for day's. I got one for my Granddaughter. She just started university.
By: Nick A.
Very sleek and light weight
These canisters seal incredible well. They keep things airtight with not a lot of bulk. Very sleek and light weight. I labeled them with some single letter stencils and some spray paint. Very pleased with these which I've had for about 2 years.
By: Rik C.
My second one, perfect size, light compact and a great gift for friends.
This is my third tightvac and it’s amazing like the rest!
Very big item. And is smell proof. Fast shipping
Hello, a few days ago we received our two tight vac containers (250 ml). Amazing pieces! Such a simple system and so effecitve! If they prove to be as good in the long-term use as they appear to be, we will most certainly buy more! And thank you for the little additional gift! I cannot decide what to use it for, but it will be loved! Thanks again! Best regards, Silke
Works exactly how it should
Works great for my coffee beans! I love that it's opaque so that light doesn't ruin the beans and the vacuum seal is easy to work. Keeps them fresh!
By: C. To
Love it works great and perfect size
By: Ambu Quinn
Nice And Big
I needed a big one to store my leafy greens. I like the coffee tint. You can still see the leaves through the tint and the tinting prevents my green from drying out to fast. Try it you'll like it.
Great product at a reasonable price
As a Costco addict, we end up with big bags of fresh ground coffee and want to enjoy fresh coffee for as long as possible. This provides a great seal and seems to keep the coffee fresh longer than anything else we have tried. It's not quite big enough to hold the entire Costco size bag of ground coffee though so we usually fill this up use up the remaining Costco bag of coffee stored in a Ziplock before breaking into this one. The Tightvac had a cameo appearance in an episode of Ballers Season 1 in the theater room of the party house...they were using it to store their bud so I guess it has that use too.
By: ATL Native
Excellent canister; really seals tightly to protect my precious hibiscus blossoms. Lots of colors to choose from and sizes!
I finally found what I was looking for to keep my coffee fresh!
I'll admit-I wasn't sure about this when I first got it but after having used it ever since I couldn't be happier. I'm not a morning person & my coffee's very important to me. When I open this container my coffee to make it it's just as fresh & fragrant as the day that I poured the coffee in it from the bag. There's plenty of room for scooping & I like this (my preferred coffee comes in an 11 oz bag), no mess, no waste. I'm glad that I waited to find this to keep my coffee in. The dark color keeps the light out & the push button on the lid is very easy to use when taking it off & putting it back on.
I just wanted to let your company know that you are doing a awesome job. Keep up the fantastic work and thank you

When I go camping in the dessert I always need one with me.
By: Larry A
EXCELLENT customer service!
Thank you, Justin. I received the items today. The lid was definitely the problem! The replacement lid works perfectly with the old container. The extra is an unexpected bonus. Thanks so much for the EXCELLENT customer service!
By: Sandy D
Bought tight vac for indoor herbal medicine and was disappointed when I stored in container and came home the next day to strong smell of medication. I bought this for discrete storage from family and was disappointed.
Your product is perfect! I'm gonna buy so much more. Thanks so much!

Thumbs up !!!
By: Bob Pull
Thanks again guys you are the best!
By: John H
You guys are the greatest! I'm so glad i found you guys! I bought from Amazon first and decided to go to the source. I took a chance and I'm such a happy customer. The freshness of my herbs have been impeccable! Thanks for the quality product. So much more i wanna say! Ha ha! Just thanks man!!
By: J Harlow
great for the price
this is a great lil stash for the price. its not true vacuum more like a very tight fitting plastic cap that fits tight enuff to require an air release valve to open or close. would i cross a border with one full of herbs, no.could you take it scuba diving, no.would it survive being dropped on a tile floor,no. is it an excellent place to store my herbs at home,absolutely yes. i buy really strong smelling herbs, its a tight fit but container will fit about 2 oz fresh herbs. while a dog would probably disagree id say it does an excellent job containing strong smells. would purchase again.
By: john h.
Great for storage to keep items fresh.
The seal is so tight that I know my lose tea will stay fresh for quite a while. Course I use it fast, but this is a great storage container for freshness and just the right size! Be careful if your loose tea has a lot of oils in it as the plastic does not work well with that type of storage.
By: Diane M.
After grinding up my peppercorns I use this to keep 'em fresh. The screen makes it so easy to use. Highly recommended.

My Dog Comes Running
Sometimes I need to bring Fido's dinner with me on the go. This Pawvac is perfect for bringing some treats. Fido is so happy when I shake the vac, He comes a runnin.
By: Jimmie Joe
They are great. I keep treats ( that she won't eat) and cat food (that she does).
I have a Karate dojo and when class is over I like a nice cup of tea. Sometimes I share it with my students. The Teavac holds enough tea for everyone.
It's Great For Tea
When I have guest come visit me I like to serve up some Iced Tea. This is a great way for me to store my Tea and it looks beautiful in my kitchen. I have one in each color.
By: Mother Abigail
it works well. I use to store freshly roasted coffee.
Excellent service, will do business again.
By: Johnny Smith
Helps keep my tea fresh
I needed an airtight container to keep my loose tea fresh and this vacuum container works fairly well. The plastic is a little thin and it doesn't seem completely air tight, but it does a decent job. It also helps keep any odor/fragrance from escaping. It measures about 6" tall and the diameter is about 3.5", which is a good size for several ounces of tea, herbs, coffee, or anything else you want to keep fresh.
I sent three of these to my Grandma. She loved them and she has been using them for her Earl Grey Tea. Thanks for helping me be a great Granddaughter!
I love the blue and white design on this one. It's big enough for all my tea and the colors match my kitchen perfectly. I would definitely recommend one to a friend.

I roast small batches of green coffee beans at home. I purchased the Tightvac to help preserve the freshness of my roasted coffee beans. I like the size and simplicity of the container. I like hearing the air being forced out as I press the lid down. I like how the lid stays firmly in place unless the release valve is depressed, confirming that the container is doing its job of keeping air from entering. I generally put my freshly roasted beans in the container as soon as they cool and have experienced no problems. I have found it useful to place my freshly roasted beans in an open plastic baggie before putting them in the Tightvac to prevent the inside of the container from getting oily. I believe the container does help to preserve the freshness of my coffee.

Can you put a sticker in the box if you have any? Love your product. Thanks :)
It Beats Rolling Up the Bag the Coffee Came In
We keep our ground coffee in a Tupperware-like snap lid container. Or we did until it broke. I was surprised at how hard it was to find a replacement, and how expensive. Came across this and figured, hey, why not? Reasonable price and quick Prime delivery. Well, it works just fine. Easily holds the standard 12 ounce bag, with room to spare. Not too tall for the coffee shelf and slim enough to not take up too much room. The "press the button" mechanism to slide the top on and off works well and smoothly. Easy to clean and dry off. I know it's not a super-complete vacuum, but it's enough, and it's better than rolling up the bag the coffee came in. I didn't need something that was hermetically sealed, I just needed something that would keep the coffee fresh for the few days it takes us to go through a bag. This has turned out to be just right for that purpose.

I use it to store my edibles
By: Cardi B
TightVacs have been the best 're-sealable' containers I have used...(and I've tried a LOT of brands). Opens and closes easily. No 'rubber gasket' to break and/or catch on the lid. Mine oldest one has (so far) maintained it's 'vacuum' for well over 18 months of constant use. One caution.... I would 'hand wash' the lids...no dishwashers.
Keeps My Coffee Fresh
I'm a Barista and my TV5 is great for keeping my Coffee Fresh.

By: Lena White
Works like a charm.
Perfect container for keeping my goods vacuum sealed. No air or smell gets through at all and it's a perfect size
By: john fickel
We needed a container to store all our fresh ground coffee. This one is plenty big enough. The brown tint prevents the coffee from going stale. Highly recommended.
By: Sara V
Great size for just about everything!
I got this to store my materials without leaving a smell and it does just that! Just a bit big though.
By: Chris. A
Awesome product, fast delivery!
It was worth to buy this product and get it on time. Highly recommended.
Hi, Thanks for the free container. You make the best products! Thanks, John
