  • To ensure freshness, the dial on date dialon the top of containers reminds you how long you have stored foods.
  • Keep stored food out of direct sunlight. Heat may cause the vacuum to release.
  • To avoid condensation, the food should be at room temperature before being sealed in vacuum.
  • Periodically remove air in container when storing food as changed In temperature or air pressure or a long storage period will reduce the vacuum pressure.
  • Dry the container with a soft cloth before storing.
  • Occasionally wash the silicone sealand air valve to prevent them from getting musty.
  • The Vacuum valve, silicone sealand date dial (if any) must be properly assembled to prevent malfunction.

  • Fruits and vegetables emit ethylene gases. Exposing produce to ethylene gas speeds up the ripening process, causing It to overripe and go bad. Locksy Vacuum valve release the gas that build up in the container and prevents external air from reaching the content inside and keep the food fresh longer by creating vacuum seal periodically.
  • When storing foods for an extended time, periodically check the vacuum indicator,as temperature and pressure changes can affect the vacuum seal.
  • Condensation on the lid is normal,especially in the refrigerator. If large droplets occur,dry the lid and reseal. This will prevent moisture from affecting your food.

  • Lid is top-rack dishwasher safe.
  • Container is dishwasher safe.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners. For hard-to-remove food, heat 1 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of baking soda In container.

If the container won't maintain a seal :

  • For 'VAC' series - Make sure lever assembly is in closed position.Are you pressing down firmly several times?
    For 'AIR' series - Make sure Vacuum Valve are in the proper position. Are you pumping out air until pump becomes tights?
  • Create a vacuum, then spin the date dial clockwise one full rotation.
  • Vacuum Indicator: check vacuum indicator for holes, cracks or tears. Replace if necessary.
  • Check silicone seal around outer edge of lid, making sure it is properly sealed and is snugly in place.

If the date dial will not move:

  • For 'VAC' series - Lift the lever to the open position : to a 90-degree angle.
  • Put thumb on underside of lever inside of circle; gently push the date dial and vacuum indicator through.
  • Once the date dialis out,notice its 2 small prongs ; gently press them inward.
  • Return the parts to their original position; turn the date dial clockwise.

  • Do NOT use containers in conventional ovens, on a grill, under a broiler, on a stove top or In a convection oven.
  • Caution : container may retain heat when cooking in the microwave oven.
