FoodSaver 2-Quart Rectangular Canister with Cheese Grater

Sleek Air-Tight Storage

A handy addition to any FoodSaver system, this 2-quart FoodSaver canister seals out air and moisture, making it easy to keep a variety of foods fresh longer. Use the rectangular-shaped container for storing anything from leftover lasagna, veggie sandwiches, or shredded cheddar cheese to slices of homemade bread, savory crackers, chocolate brownies, and more. From the refrigerator to the cupboard, the canister provides an exceptionally versatile food-storage solution.

The canister's hard sides also makes it a smart choice for crush-free storage of delicate items, such as fresh strawberries or green salads, and its durable, clear base allows for viewing contents at a glance. Even more, the canister provides a low-profile design, which helps save on space in the fridge, and its secure-latching lid keeps the canister sealed air tight.

Vacuum-Sealing Latch-On Lid

The 2-quart rectangular canister's innovative lid features an air-removing hose that attaches to any FoodSaver vacuum sealing system (machine not included). To vacuum seal, simply add food to the canister, secure the latch-on lid, and connect the lid's removable hose to the vacuum sealing system. The vacuum sealer will automatically remove all the air inside the canister to create a stay-fresh, airtight seal. To remove the lid, push down on the lid's vacuum-release button and unlatch the lid.

Includes Cheese Grater

A rectangular-shaped cheese grater comes included. The grater fits flat on top of the canister, allowing for easy cheese shredding right into the container. The cheese grater features a white frame with a loop handle for easy insert/removal and a durable metal blade surface with two grating surfaces: one for shredding (ideal for shredded cheddar on taco night or piles of mozzarella for homemade pizza) and one for shaving (sensational for finely shaved parmesan or other hard cheeses).

Store-bought shredded cheese offers convenience, but costs more and goes bad quickly. Purchase blocks of cheese and shred at home for the same convenience at a lower cost--and with the added benefit of vacuum sealing between uses for prolonged freshness. The canister and grater combo make it easy to shred and store--all in one.

Keeps Food Fresh up to 5x Longer -- Save up to $2700 a Year

As always, the FoodSaver system keeps your food fresh up to five times longer compared to other storage methods (like zipper bags, foil, plastic wrap and plastic containers) and helps you save up to $2700 a year by buying food in bulk, purchasing on-sale food items, and not having to worry about freezer burn or wasted food.

BPA-Free Material

The 2-quart rectangular canister is made of BPA-free plastic that's both stain resistant and odor proof for reliable performance from one use to the next. When finished, the container cleans up easily by hand or in the dishwasher.

About the FoodSaver brand

UPDATE to below: I called FoodSaver at 1-877-777-8042, spoke to a very nice rep, explained my problem and they are sending a free replacement because it was still under warranty. I expected a runaround but didn't get one and can't say how much I appreciated her response. There still may be a design problem (I'll soon know) but don't be afraid to call the company ASAP.

My problem:
I purchased the 2 quart "rectangular" container about 3 weeks ago along with several small and large "round" containers. None subjected to microwave, freezer, dishwasher or dropped. The ROUND containers appear good after 3 weeks of slight use But the 2 quart rectangular container has failed after very slight use (mostly just setting around empty with a vacuum. On the inside of the unit the are vertical fracture cracks at the corners and on the flat side under the lid latch some very nasty looking curved fracture lines (4 lines appx 3/4") that are getting longer. You can feel the cracks on the inside with your fingernail. They have not reached the outside (yet) and vacuum is still held but it's just a matter of time before rupture. There is absolutely a design flaw in the rectangular containers. The round containers and the small sandwich (flexible) containers are fine (so far). DO NOT BUY THE "RECTANGULAR" RIDGED CONTAINER. The cover seems fine (so far), the problem is the bottom container is going to crack (implode) open. I'll vacuum it and put it in a safe place waiting for total failure. THIS SPECIFIC STYLE IS JUNK and should be removed from the market. After researching internet complaints I have a feeling Tilia/Foodsaver knows this.

I bought one of these canisters directly from Foodsaver. Within 6 weeks I noticed it would not hold a vacuum over night. I also noticed hairline cracks in the corner. I called the Foodsaver company and they were happy to send me another one. Now, the replacement one has the exact same problem. This time when I called they stated that there is no guarantee on canisters at all. I never dropped or abused this item. If I wanted to replace it I would have to pay full price and shipping. (I have no problem with the round canisters.)

Basically, the FOODSAVER system is sound and well designed EXCEPT for the canisters which often crack. Many of us have urged Tilia to upgrade the plastic canisters, and so far they have refused. I do not put the canisters in the dishwasher, or even use harsh chemicals. One canister cracked, pressurized, on the shelf after a few weeks without being moved. When you call Tilia they will let you know that there is NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND on their canisters, which tells volumes about how they view their own product.

Tilia blames their customers for the cracks. I am honestly sorry I did not heed the warnings I read by Amazon consumers before I purchased. I usually depend on Amazon customer recommendations for all my purchases. I have spent much money on Tilia accessories, and am now considering looking for another brand. Hope this helps, Ron

I like the depth of this container. I use it more for storage than as a marinator because of its depth. This is excellent for keeping berries fresh. I have no use for the grater; I prefer the food processor and standing graters. The canister is a clear plastic, which looks much better than the smoke-colored ones.

As a marinator, it produced very flavorful chicken, but I'm not sure if it was more flavorful than traditionally marinated.

I am giving this four stars instead of five because the canister is top-rack dishwasher safe, but the lids are not.

We've had a FoodSaver machine for about 4 years and love it; we've even given a few as gifts. But we've finally had it with all of their canisters, and will never buy another. They're just made too cheaply, and do not last.

This goes for both the round and the rectangular versions, we've purchased several of each size / configuration over the years. Most recently, we bought 2 each of the 1, 1.5 and 2 quart rectangular canisters, and 3 out of 6 have already cracked -- and so will no longer hold a vacuum -- after only 6 weeks of service. That's right, they lasted just long enough for the return period to expire (either to Amazon or to the manufacturer). And there's no warranty on them!

I think we've used enough of these products long enough that it isn't user error, nor have we abused them in any way (hand washing, and no kids in the house). The only FoodSaver canister-type products that provide any useful life are the quick marinator and the meal/lunch/leftover containers. All the rest are crap, and expensive crap, at that.

It's a shame, too, because it seems that if the canisters were molded just a little thicker and/or made of a less brittle plastic, they would last much longer.

As it is, we now have a dozen or so unused FoodSave canister lids lying around. You can't buy just a replacement canister without the lid, even if you wanted to.

On the strength of some very positive user reviews on this site, we've just placed an order for some FreshVac Professional containers FreshVac 3-405TC Professional 12-Piece Polycarbonate Vacuum-Sealing Food-Storage Container Set with Dividers, which have a lifetime warranty.
