Can someone explain the fascination with Gamma seals? I've never seemed to have a problem with the typical 5-gal covers.
I've seen it on more than this site, so thanks.
It depends on what you are using them for.
If long term no touch, no big deal
if regular access, or needing a GOOD seal, they are very useful
Long and short- if you need fast and easy- you can open and close Gamma Seals with one hand, to an airtight/water tight seal.
I LOVE it for dog food/cat food- 5 gallon bucket fits most of a 35 pound bag. So 1 5 gallon bucket for extra food. 1 2.5 gallon bucket in kitchen. We use it every day- In 5 years, it still works the same as the day I got it. Set lid down, twist. DONE.
When I upgrade my food storage, I plan on the containers I am using to have gamma seals. The ones in Long term storage not so important- They are not open /close open/ close.
