The coronavirus pandemic has affected almost every part of the world and has changed the way we think about food for both humans and our pets. Buying in bulk is becoming more and more popular as consumers are starting to take less trips to the store. One thing most people don't realize about the packaging food comes in, is that it's not designed to store food for the long-term. Once you get home with all that food, you'll want to keep the food fresh and free from pests. A standard bucket and a Gamma Seal Lid will protect your food and keep it fresh as long as possible.

GAMMA SEAL LIDS VS. OTHER LIDS

Bulk dry foods need to be stored in a cool, dry place in order to stay fresh. Having an airtight solution that keeps moisture from seeping into your food storage container is very important when it comes to storing your bulk food. While there are plenty of food storage containers and lids on the market that claim to be airtight and keep goods fresh, the simple fact is they do not. The difference between those lids and Gamma Seal Lids is the patented Gamma Seal Technology. Gamma Seal Technology features double gaskets and a threading locking system that provides the ultimate protection to whatever you're storing. Having double gaskets creates an airtight seal that keeps good moisture in and bad moisture out. Gamma2 offers these airtight lids in a variety of colors so if needed, you can color code whatever you're storing.

Another important part of storing bulk foods is the actual container you are storing your food in. If you're using a plastic container, make sure it's made with BPA food grade plastic. This is important because if its not made with BPA food grade plastic, it could be made with plastic that contains chemicals that are toxic to humans and animals. The food can absorb the toxic chemicals which can then cause you or your animals to get sick. Having trouble finding a BPA food grade storage container? You can find one here that also comes with one Gamma Seal Lid already installed and ready for use.

FOODS YOU CAN STORE WITH A GAMMA SEAL LID:

  • Grains (oats, wheat, cereals, etc.)
  • Beans (pinto, black, etc,)
  • Rice
  • Seeds
  • Corn
  • Flour, sugar, salt, etc.
  • Dog food
  • Bird seed
  • Cat food
  • House feed
  • Rabbit feed

HOUSEHOLD ITEMS YOU CAN STORE WITH A GAMMA SEAL LID:

  • Paint

  • Charcoal
  • Fishing gear
  • Pool chemicals
  • Wood chips
  • Lawn tools
  • Garden fertilizers

Before you store any household item in a bucket with a Gamma Seal Lid, be sure to read the label of the product you've purchased and follow the storage guidelines on the packaging of what you are storing.

HOW TO INSTALL A GAMMA SEAL LID

Besides being airtight and easy to spin, Gamma Seal Lids are also very easy to install. The Gamma Seal Lid comes in two parts: the adapter ring and the lid. To install a Gamma Seal Lid, first snap the adapter ring to the bucket by placing it on top of the bucket and pressing down firmly. If needed, use a rubber mallet to help snap it onto the bucket. Be sure to use a rubber mallet and not a hammer. A hammer can damage the adapter. Once the adapter ring is installed, simply spin the lid clockwise. To open, spin the lid counterclockwise. This simple 2-step process turns any 3.5 – 7 gallon standard bucket into an airtight storage container.
