Friis Coffee Canistor – Very elegant canister

Quality product keeps my coffee beans fresh.

It looks good, if rather large. First time i used it, the thing fell over.

Very good and for the price too. Some very cheap (do not keep air-out) and very expensive (how much?) coffee containers out there. This one does very well, would prefer a choice of colours or even different coloured lids to separate out beans.

  • Excellent value and works well
  • Very elegant canister
  • Really do like this canistor and it keeps the beans nice and

Great for keeping your coffee fresh. It’s a shame that the freshness valves cost more than the canister.

Really good coffee canister, love the design, keeps my coffee fresh and it’s big & clean enough for me to add my free ‘death wish coffee’ sticker to the front 😉 the one downside is the lid hinge is a little wobbly so have to do it up carefully when you close it again, but it does the job really well and looks good in the cupboard.

Keeps coffee nice and fresh.

Very elegant canister, and very easy to open and close. It looks like the flavour is kept inside, though, there is a small thing: the ring is not very tight around the canister. Therefore, the closing clip seems to come too close to the clamp. It still keeps it closed, but it feels almost loose.

Happy i bought this to store my coffee. Seals well and seems well built so i’m hoping this will last a long time.

Initially i purchased two of these and they are ok for coffee storage. They are overpriced but they have limited competition. I then purchased two more but both were poorly made to the extent that the clasp slide up the canister and did not form a good seal. I have returned these for a refund and purchased the ‘airscape by planetary design’. This product is the same price and uses a similar canister but with a non-slip base and uses a different sealing system that removes the air form the canister and does not have a c02 valve. I am using all 4 canisters, but prefer the airscape due to its air removal design. Uk, were excellent in dealing with the issue and i have rated them as 5 star.

Lovely seems to make my coffee keep fresh. Not that i leave it long enough to go off.

Really do like this canistor and it keeps the beans nice and fresh. Only downside is it does not quite fit a full 1kg bag but it is close.

I love this canister, such a simple idea but actually hard to find. There are countless ‘airtight’ canisters and tubs but this is the first i have seen with a latch style lock, and it is actually airtight. When closing it gives a slight suction whoosh as you fasten the clasp, then upon opening the smell of coffee (or other caffeinated substances) will pleasantly wafted towards you. I purchased some blackboard foil and chalk pens, inspired by a customer image on amazon, as i like to change which coffee i used on a weekly basis. However the foil was horrible quality, so i experimented with writing straight onto the metal, wow, works even better than writing on foil. I cant really comment on the co2 valves as i don’t tend to keep coffee longer than a week, it just doesn’t last that longi have had the same valve since i bought it in june and have never noticed a deterioration in freshness. The only problem (not really a problem actually), is that when empty and opened the canister can sometimes fall over as the lid is quite top heavy, however it has only fallen over once and was not damaged at all. Overall i love this canister, its practical, well made and fun when used with coloured chalk pens. Since i have started using decaf alongside my regular caffeinated i will have to purchase another.

    After ordering the item i discovered the freshness valve needs replacing every two months. There’s no mention of this or the key feature of a date dial on the lid (to remind you to replace the valve). The item currently at £20 comes with six replacement valves, which cost over £40 to replace through amazon. Coffeehit currently provide these valves at £9 delivered. For me the initial and ongoing cost of this item (potentially replacing it every year) is not justified by the claims it is supposed to keep a weeks supply of coffee smelling fresher than in a normal airtight container. In addition, i’d assume the container is no longer airtight once the filter has degraded. (the inside of the filter looks like it is covered by white paper or a dusting of powder. ) i’ve now returned the item.
