Pump and Seal food saver vacuum sealer is better than Tilia FoodSaver Gotta say, this has been a great addition to mylar bags-n-buckets. Turns any glass jar- pickle, jelly, mason, olive, whatever- into a handy storage container for spices, tobacco, whacky-tobacky, etc... Stick a push-pin through the metal jar lid and apply the one-way air tab, then pump out all the air for a great vacuum sealed glass jar. You can remove some contents and repump/re-seal as many times as you like. Very effective; did a 2 year test on some tobacco, and it was still fresh and quite smokable. Ditto spices (but I didnt smoke 'em LOL) that I have stored in 1 gallon pickle jars. Fast, effective, & CHEAP; I paid under $40 for an entire kit with tons of tabs.
