Borosilicate glass is prized for its durability, clarity and resistance to scratches and thermal shock.

Duralex Glass Lys Storage Containers
Duralex Lys Storage Containers
NEW from France: Glass Storage Containers

A national treasure in France: Founded in 1939, Duralex has manufactured tempered glassware and tabletop products for over eighty years in La Chapelle-Saint-Mesmin in the very heart of France. Since 1939, when Duralex invented the glass tempering process, the name Duralex has been associated with toughened glassware, utilizing their proprietary process. The original tempered Picardie glasses are still produced in France and are known as the “original French tumblers”. The Picardie glass is functional yet stylish and feels extremely comfortable in the hand. The tempered glasses are equally suitable for cold or hot drinks, conveniently stackable, microwave, freezer and dishwasher-safe, impact and chip resistant, and the perfect weight. With the help of continuous investments and commitment to quality, Duralex has reached a level of excellence that makes its products recognized throughout the world. Duralex is and will always remain a true French manufacturer of glassware and tabletop products, and is the only glass manufacturer that makes 100% of their products in France.

Tempered glass: The tempering of Duralex glass products make them 2.5 times more impact and chip resistant than ordinary glass.

Shock resistant: Duralex is manufactured to withstand sudden temperature extremes from -4°F to 212°F and is suitable for hot or cold liquids. Adaptable modern glassware can go directly from the freezer to the microwave.

Norpro Bread Slicing Guide

Norpro Bread Slicing Guide: Easily cut uniform slices, 9/16" thick. Crumbs drop through slats into wooden box, keeping your countertop clean! Just shake box over waste can from time to time. Includes a removable end piece (not shown) that aids slicing when loaf is short. Overall size is 7"D x 6.6"H x 12.5"W. accommodates a loaf up to 6.5" wide. Due to this slicing guide's width, your bread knife should have a blade 9.5" or longer, otherwise your maximum slicing stroke will be too short and the knife tip will tend to slip out of the far-side guide... and that's aggravating!

Gamma Seal Bucket Lids:
Super-handy resealable lids for your plastic buckets! Gamma Seal lids are air-tight, liquid-tight, pest-tight, reuseable, stackable, and nearly indestructible!



Closeup of Gamma Seal Lid with ring mounted on bucket


Stack of lids showing available colors of super-versatile Gamma Seal Lids


Gamma Lids have two-piece construction: Ring seals onto bucket rim, and lid screws into threaded ring for airtight, leak-proof, resealability!
Gamma Products: Gamma Seal Lids

The Gamma Seal Bucket Lid: This two-part gadget transforms a standard plastic bucket into a rugged, gasketed, resealable storage container that's both air-tight and water-tight. Just snap the outer ring down onto your bucket. The threaded lid turns easily with molded-in grip bars. These lids are heavy duty for years and years of service. The ring has a polymer gasket where it seats against the lid of your bucket, and the threaded lid has another polymer gasket, giving the container an air-tight, water-tight seal that excludes not only such freeloaders as mice and insects, but moisture too.

The Gamma Seal lid transforms an ordinary bucket
into the ideal storage vault for an endless list of materials from grain and other foods to laundry products, pet food, tools, documents, silk ties, lawn and garden products, bait, seeds, oil, disaster supplies... and on and on. They also make lightweight, super-strong, watertight totes for camping gear. And did we mention that they're stackable? Our customers come back for more of these. (Make your life easier by ordering a few more the first time?)

All Gamma Lid plastics are food safe
, including "heavy-metal-free" pigment in the colored lids, and all Gamma products are BPA-free. Gamma Seal lids do not include the bucket. If you need buckets (also made with food-safe resins), they're also available separately below. Please note that color tint of plastic buckets can vary, so Gamma Lid colors may not perfectly match with the color of any given plastic buckets.

Sizing: The "Buy Buttons" below (except the one labeled for "2 Gallon") refer to 12" Gamma Seal lids which fit 3.5 gallon or 5 gallon or 6 gallon buckets with standard top diameter of 12". Gamma Lids having 9-3/8" diameter will fit 2 gallon buckets with standard top diameter of 9-3/8". If you want to use Gamma Seal Lids on buckets you already have, be sure your bucket tops have exactly these measurements. (The buckets offered for sale lower on this page all have the proper top diameters to accept their respective size of Gamma Seal Lid.)

To be safe for food, plastic containers must not be made from recycled plastic that could contain toxic substances from previous uses. Food safe plastic containers also must use only food-safe colorants. Pleasant Hill Grain's buckets and lids (in all colors but black) use only virgin High Density Polyethylene and FDA-approved colorants.





Above: One 500cc oxygen absorber packet.




Sealed package of 50 absorbers.

Oxygen Absorbers for Food Storage

Oxygen Absorbers: Our premium oxygen absorbers remove the oxygen from airtight sealed food storage containers. Removing oxygen stops oxidation, to dramatically extend food shelf life. Eliminating oxygen also prevents all activity by insects even if any are present in the container at the time it is sealed. The absorbers are non-toxic and food safe (the principal ingredients are powdered iron and salt.) Two 500cc packets are sufficient to remove the oxygen from a six gallon bucket completely filled with wheat (or similar grain). Absorbers can be used in containers with any kind of food. If you fill a bucket with a foodstuff that has less density than wheat, then there will be more air in the bucket, so more absorber packets should be used accordingly. (Also note that altitude has a great affect on air density and therefore on the amount of oxygen in a given volume of space. This means if you live on top of a mountain in Colorado, you can get by with somewhat fewer absorbers than average, and if you live at a very low altitude... don't skimp.) Packets are sold vacuum-sealed, in quantity of 50 packets per bag.

Absorption Rating:
Each absorber is rated at 500cc, which means that each will absorb at least 500 cubic centimeters of oxygen from your storage container, when used as directed. Absorbers are single-use, meaning that once they have absorbed oxygen from a storage container as they're designed to do, they can't be reused.

Use Guidelines:
Oxygen absorbers are shipped in an airtight sealed bag. When you open that outer bag, the absorbers soon begin absorbing oxygen from the atmosphere. The absorbers contain enough active ingredient so that you can leave them in the open atmosphere for 30-45 minutes before you seal them into your food containers. Because of this natural working-time limitation, it's important to have your storage containers filled and ready to put the lids onto, before you open the package of 50 absorbers. If you need to use fewer than 50 absorbers and want to save the rest for use later, you can effectively re-seal the extra absorbers in an airtight bag using a home or commercial vacuum sealing machine. Inside your storage container, oxygen absorbers can be placed under or within food, but we recommend putting them on top so you don't lose track of which containers you've put absorbers into.

Container & Lid Suitability: If using oxygen absorbers in plastic buckets, you need to use standard hammer-on lids (not Gamma Lids.) Gamma Lids are airtight, but are not designed to counteract the force of pressure that's created when all of the oxygen in the container is removed by oxygen absorbers. Once the standard lid is initially removed to start using the contents, a Gamma Lid can be used to re-seal the bucket against moisture, rodents and insects. A quality bucket and hammer-on gasketed lid will provide a fully adequate oxygen barrier for at least a couple years of storage. For even longer term oxygen-free storage, inside your buckets you can also use Mylar liner bags which, when heat-sealed shut around your food, will effectively block oxygen permeation for years and years.

Shelf Life: Absorbers in their original sealed bag have a shelf life of 1 year.

Mylar Bags



FYI...
There are different, "Ziplock" Mylar bags on the market, which some websites claim don't really need to be heat sealed. That's incorrect if the goal is an oxygen-impermeable seal, which is the whole point of using Mylar bags. A Ziplock style closure allows rapid oxygen transfer, quickly leaving your food unprotected. A Mylar bag can be heat sealed above the Ziplock closure, so the Ziplock strip can remain after the bag has been unsealed for use of its contents. But since Mylar bags with the Ziplock feature are about twice the price of standard Mylar bags, we believe Gamma Lids are the smarter, more versatile way to provide physical closure to your in-use containers. (You need Gamma-Lidded buckets for only as many product types as you'll have open at once, because they're infinitely re-sealable. Just transfer each new bucket's contents into the Gamma-lidded container after opening.) Standard Mylar bags and a few Gamma Lids provide superior protection at lower cost!
Mylar Bags for Food Storage

Mylar Vacuum-Sealable Bags:
Mylar bags are a special type of metalized vacuum-sealable bag. Just like standard vacuum bags, they have an inner layer of FDA approved food safe polyethelene. The poly layer has a relatively low melting point, so it can be heat-sealed to close the bag air tight. Fused to the outside of the poly layer is a layer of nylon that acts as a strong barrier to oxygen soak-through (a far better barrier than poly.) Nylon cannot be heat-sealed, but the duo of poly and nylon is heat-sealable and highly impermeable to oxygen. What distinguishes Mylar bags is a third layer of thin, flexible metal fused to the outside of the nylon layer. This thin metal layer provides the ultimate oxygen barrier.
And outside the metal layer is another polymer layer for abrasion resistance. Mylar bags are the best choice for multi-year oxygen-free storage of food (or other goods.) They also provide the maximum barrier against moisture and any vapors that may be in the storage environment, including possible fuel vapors. Mylar bags are normally used as liners inside a rugged container (typically a quality plastic bucket) that will protect your goods and the Mylar bag from physical damage (including damage from vermin.)

Size: These durable 4 mil thickness Mylar bags pre-sealed on three sides to form the bag. The large bags are sized for use inside either a 5 or 6 gallon bucket, leaving enough bag sticking out the top, to be heat sealed. The large bags (20" wide x 30" deep) are sold individually as well as in cases of 100. Smaller 8" x 12" bags are good for a variety of smaller-quantity storage uses and are sold in case quantity of 100.


Two steps must be taken to protect your food with Mylar bags. One is that you must seal the bag, and the other is that you must get the oxygen out. Sealing the bag can be done with a commercial impulse sealer. That's a machine that fuses the bag mouth shut. A straight impulse sealer does NOT vacuum air out of the bag, it just seals it shut. Commercial impulse sealers are available with wide enough seal bars to span the full 20" width of the large Mylar bags. A 24"-bar sealer is available below. Another way to seal the bag shut is to use a common household "Seal-a-Meal" type of machine. Those machines are normally used (with smaller bags) to both extract air AND to seal a bag shut. Such home-use vacuum-sealing machines don't have a wide enough opening to extract the air from a 20" wide bag, but they CAN seal such a wide bag opening shut (without air extraction), by using their "seal only" mode and simply sealing multiple connecting bands across the full width of the bag opening. A fairly large home vacuum sealer can seal a 20" wide bag using that method, in just two "bites." It's less convenient than the commercial impulse sealer, but it does offer the advantage of versatility... meaning that when you're not sealing 20" wide Mylar bags, the "Seal-a-Meal" type of machine can be used to seal lots of products (with or without vacuuming out the air) in smaller bags as well as other types of containers. It's a excellent way to greatly extend the fresh taste and nutrient quality of foods on the counter, or in the fridge or freezer, by eliminating the rapid degrading effects of oxygen. If you don't already have a home vacuum sealer, you can see those machines here. (Important clarification: Home-type vacuum sealers, in order to extract air from the bag, require use of plastic bags having an embossed inside surface. BUT if you only want to seal a bag and not use it to extract air, then home-type machines WILL accomplish that sealing function on smooth-surfaced bags like the Mylar bags, that do not have an embossed surface.)

The second step (oxygen removal): You could spend $8,000 on a huge chamber-style vacuum machine designed to vacuum-extract the contents of a large bucket, and seal the Mylar bag. A much less expensive route, and one that's equally effective, is to simply put one or more oxygen absorber packets into the bag before you seal the bag closed. For small-scale operations, oxygen absorbers are highly economical, reliable, and easy to use, and they're available on this same Web page, here: Non-Toxic Oxygen Absorbers.


Interestingly... there's a reason why these bags look like Mylar party balloons. It's because they're made of a commercial version of the same material as the balloons. Helium is an extremely tiny atom, even for a gas. In an ordinary latex balloon, a special chemical coating must be added to keep the helium corralled... without that coating, the helium atoms holler "Adios, we're outta here" and zip right out through the balloon's wall, leaving it shriveled and very un-party-like. Whether or not helium contacts your food is irrelevant, because helium is highly inert. But Mylar's ability to stop the passage of even tiny helium atoms is great testimony to its effectiveness against much larger molecules including O2 and H2O!

Snappy Grip Bucket Handle

Snaps on easily



Snappy Grip® Bucket Handles

An overdue idea! Snappy Grips replace missing bucket handles. Their 1" diameter and finger-grip contoured shape make them so comfortable you'll find yourself removing NEW handles to install Snappy Grips on buckets used for heavy loads. Length is 3-7/8". The two halves of each Snappy Grip handle are identical to each other. To install, just position them over the bucket's wire handle so that the tabs of each handle-half fit into the slots of the other half, and squeeze together.

Square Bucket with Reclosable Lid, 5 gallon

5 Gallon Square Buckets: These five gallon buckets are square, and include a unique reclosable lid. The lid ships unattached, and can be installed with a rubber mallet (or regular hammer and a wooden 2x4 to prevent lid damage.) After it's initially installed, the lid is completely air tight and water tight, having a rubber gasket. Later, when you're ready to break the seal (by tearing away the lower skirt of the front lid section), the lid hinges open as shown in the upper image at left. The lid has molded-in latches to hold it open as shown, and also has a clip-over latch that holds it securely in the closed position. After the initial seal is broken, the lid (when in the closed position) is close-fitting, but is no longer air or water tight. The closeness of the fit is such that if held upside down with some water inside, the water will come out in a fast trickle. (If you need fully gasketed resealability, see our Gamma Seal lids instead.) We have tested the lid's hinge to over 1000 open/close cycles. Made of food-safe virgin polypropylene and polyethylene.

Dimensions: 10"W x 10"D x 16-3/4"H.

5 Gallon Water Jug

5 Gallon Water Jugs: These very rugged 5 gallon jugs are made of heavy duty food grade virgin polyethylene and food-safe colorant. They're highly rigid and stackable, with stabilizing moldings to prevent shifting when stacked. Vent cap for small opening is included with jug (the vent feature comes w/o hole; pierce with awl or drill bit to use.) Cap for large opening is sold separately and has a center hole with knockout, threaded for 3/4" pipe fitting (will accept optional spigot, etc.) Comfortable carry handle is molded in. Rectangular shape maximizes storage volume in available space. We greatly prefer these water jugs over larger drums which are virtually immovable after filling.

Dimensions: 10.25"W x 11.25"D x 14.25"H, Five gallon capacity (19 liters)
