Hi everyone, My first question, when googled, brought me to this great site, so I joined. Now, we all seem to know that the Gamma lids crack, or arrive cracked. Which tells me, not to rely on them. I like the lids that come with the Food Safe 5 gallon pail, but after a few times on and off, they start failing. So, has anyone found a WELL MADE gamma lid or something like that, which will last and serve its purpose? Mylar bags are a given, but do you seal those mylar bags with a heat sealer? This is of course, for long term storage. Lastly, for those of us, who may have a varmint problem, plastic won't stop them from getting in. I just take the 5 gallon containers, and put them inside a galvanised garbage can with a lockable lid. Not the smallest footprint, thats the negative aspect to this plan. There has to be hundreds of types of containers that will keep out just about anything.
