This Airscape Lite Canister is 10 inches high, made of acrylic and looks good nearly anywhere with it’s clear acrylic outer lid. However, the true magic is with the adjustable second lid inside the container. This second lid seals at the height of what you have stored it it, using its special venting handle. The venting handle allows the air out as you press the lid down inside the canister. Once down, the handle folds over to make the canister 100% airtight. Airscape canisters are fantastic for keeping all kinds of products fresh. Think coffee, tea, herbs, dried fruit, and spices, pretty much anything your imagination can come up with. Airscape containers are the only thing we use when we don’t want to keep our coffee beans in our Cupper’s bags! The Airscape Lite Canister 10″ holds well over a pound of coffee beans, or a large bag of pasta.
