The issue of a can sealer in another thread bright me to this question. I've always wanted one, but TBH I haven't researched beyond pricing and a "the best" type search. The question is, how do you know when you've lost a seal? With Mylar I can generally, simply tell when I lose a seal. I go thru once a year and pull any bags not sealed and eat it up. If there's no way to tell, I'll mark it off my list now and change my shelving design. More Mylar means more totes.

No clue, but if you put an O2 absorber in the can, when you open it won't you get a whooshing sound? No whooshnig sound = not sealed.

But IDK how you would tell without opening it so it probably doesn't help for the mean time.

That's a big problem for me. No way I would put my expensive freeze dried meals or meats in something I couldn't monitor. I'm out.

I had a bad feral cat problem. Out of control. Down to about 20 I'd say. Haven't seen a mouse dropping anywhere. The place still has a heavy cat urine odor. The ones left seem to have learned to stay away from the porch and vehicles. I'll live with this balance until things change on their end.
