Planetary Design releases new AirScape® stainless steel storage canister

Missoula, MT March 1, 2008 – Planetary Design has unveiled the new AirScape®, a stainless steel storage canister that will drastically improve how foods are stored. Unlike most food canisters that lock flavor destroying oxygen inside the compartment with the food, the patented AirScape® technology forces the air out through a one-way valve and then locks it out. The lack of direct contact with oxygen allows the food to maintain its natural flavor much longer. Its stainless steel construction is very durable and will not impart the flavors of stored foods.

The AirScape® food canister is expected to retail around $30.00 USD. It can be used to store a number of different foods from flour and sugar to cookies and crackers but was designed primarily for coffee and tea storage. The AirScape is available in many colors and will be available for purchase at
