Description

One of the only areas in which the Aspen canister didn't excel was in a test that assesses if its seal is airtight. After storing coffee in the canister for more than a week, we determined that the beans had lost a lot of their CO2, indicating that the canister isn't fully airtight. The coffee, both ground and whole beans, remained fresh enough to brew a tasty batch, however, so you shouldn't be deterred from purchasing the Aspen canister. It just doesn't have the same top performance as some of the pricier, specialized coffee canisters. So if you want to avoid a rough brew you need the Fellow Atmos Storage Jar collection in your life. The design of the Atmos is very modern, sleek, and sophisticated. Whether you opt for the glass or the matte design, you will not be disappointed. If you like the product and want a full set for your kitchen, Planetary Design produces the Airscape in two other sizes: a small canister, which holds 8 ounces of coffee, and a medium-sized one, which can store up to 1 pound. All options are sold at reasonable prices—even this bulk one.

This canister is available in three sizes and multiple colors. The medium canister, which we tested, comfortably holds 1 pound of ground or whole bean coffee. We filled the canister with water and shook it upside down over the sink to test the integrity of the airtight seal. Not a single drop of water escaped, showing how well your coffee beans will be protected inside. The item should not be put in the dishwasher, but we washed inside the canister with a sponge without issue. The Atmos doesn’t perform as well with powdered goods. This is because fine powders can get suctioned through the filter on the lid and end up clogging the vacuum pump. We wouldn’t recommend using the Atmos for anything smaller than the holes on the underside of the lid. Cleaning and Maintenance A large part of what makes the item effective is its cork lid. It takes a firm push to get the lid on, indicating that the silicone gasket forms an airtight seal. Yet, it's not difficult to put the lid on; instead, it's just the right amount of tension. After storing whole-bean coffee in the canister for eight days, it came out fragrant and made a flavorful brew. We stored ground coffee in the canister for another eight days and it came out less vibrant but still sufficient. It's also convenient that the canister is dishwasher-safe, which isn't the case with many other models we tested.canister holds up to 6oz of coffee beans, 0.7L canister holds up to 10oz of coffee beans, and 1.2L canister holds up to 16oz of coffee beans. You can find the Le Creuset Storage Canister in three sizes, starting at 23 ounces and working up to this 2.5-quart model. This offers the chance to buy a matching set in various sizes should you want to store other kitchen goods, like sugar and flour. The canister is dishwasher-safe, although the lid is hand-wash only.

Each Atmos is made up of three main parts: the canister base, the silicone seal, and the vacuum lid. When the device is pressurized, the silicone seal is the ultimate harmonized between the base and the lid. It keeps the unit airtight and prevents any damage from the lid compressing against the base. Functionality As with any kitchen appliance, there are specific ways to clean and maintain your new Atmos. We’d like to preface this section by letting you know that the Atmos is not microwave safe, dishwasher save, or oven safe. If you want your Atmos to last awhile, we recommend not putting it in any of those places. First Use Fellow produces hight quality products and the Atmos is no exception. The Atmos feels solid in your hand and we think our canisters are going to stand the test of time.

Overall Score: 4.8/5

The Fellow Atmos Vacuum Canisteris sleek, easy to use, and available in several sizes and colors, not to mention it has a dependable airtight seal. As an alternative, the Oxo Steel Pop Containehas excellent value for money and passed our tests with flying colors. How We Tested Coffee Canisters This is an updated version of a previous Oxo coffee canister. The two are similar in size, price, and design, but the newer model comes with a couple of upgrades, especially regarding its ease of cleaning. It is now dishwasher-safe (aside from the lid) after previously being hand-wash only. It’s been pretty neat to see how strong the vacuum in the unit is; we haven’t been able to remove the lid yet without first depressurizing it. Other Uses

One of the best ways to keep coffee beans fresh is by protecting them from oxygen, and few kitchen containers do a better job of that than the Fellow Atmos Vacuum Canister. In fact, the brand says its canisters increase coffee shelf life by roughly 50 percent. After testing, we confirmed that the canister keeps coffee fresh longer than other options, though we can't definitively corroborate the 50 percent claim. We also performed a follow-up test with the Atmos in a different size (1.2 liters as opposed to 0.4 liters) and, again, found the results above average. Over time, you may find that your Atmos gets dirty from coffee oils or cookie crumbs. Follow the care instructions outlined above and you’ll be all set to use your Atmos again after it dries. Other Considerations When you first open your Atmos, you’ll want to clean the entire unit before its first use. There are separate cleaning instructions for the lid and the canister. Don’t clean the lid under running water or submerged it. This can cause all kinds of problems with the vacuum pump. You’ll want to separate the lid from the filter and the gasket. The gasket is the rubber ring that holds the metal filter onto the lid. You can wash the filter, gasket, and canister with soapy water and a non-abrasive sponge. The lid should be cleaned with a damp cloth, but make sure not to let any water get inside.Stainless steel is the most common material for a coffee canister, but plastic, ceramic, copper, and glass are all options, too. One key detail to look out for is whether the material is translucent and would expose coffee beans to UV rays, which would make them go stale faster. This mainly applies to plastic and glass. Another concern is durability. Would you prefer a more durable material like stainless steel? If aesthetic the biggest factor, you may prefer something that stands out more, like ceramic or copper. While glass isn't the best material for a canister, as exposure to sunlight causes coffee to go stale faster, the Bodum Yohki storage jar tested well enough that it deserves inclusion on this list. (It even outperformed several stainless canisters that we tested.) Just try to keep it out of direct sunlight if possible.
