Gold Lined Paint cans

<< < (5/5)

A few of us got together (thanks to Endurance) and did a group purchase of the qt. size gold lined paint cans which cheapened the shipping considerably.  I bought a couple of cases and then repackaged some of my freeze dried and dehydrated foods into them since I didn't want a #10 can sitting around going stale or picking up moisture.  It's a good concept but I hate these cans.  They are a pain to store (they don't stack well) and whatever you do don't wash them (to sterilize) in the dishwasher - they rust easily (outside) and this was not something I thought of. 

Will I buy more? Nope I think I'll do food saver bags and store in buckets next time around.
