DIY vacuum lid (glass jar cap)

Hi, people!

Made by me DIY vacuum lid (glass jar cap).

Control water filling, it shows, haw much air was pumped out:

I want to use such a DIY lids for not very long-term storage of dried fruits, herbs etc. , which are well kept in the closed jars with normal air, to reduce the possible condensation . Not for storage of products in liquid marinades . When storing foods with a high content of liquid can be severe rust at the puncture.
not all that brown - is chocolate

That's a nice project. Thanks for sharing. Realize this is an older topic, but I'm curious to know how long the vacuum kept in the jar?

It will hold a long time. I bought a thing that does the same thing. I've found jars of stuff in my pantry a year later (at least!!) with a vacuum. Nice he created his own
P!

Thanks. I have the regular and wide mouth attachments for vacuum sealing mason jars, as well as brake line bleeders and similar hand pumps to use with those. I was curious on screw top lids as shown in the video, but I suppose if it's tightened properly that the seal is still along the top rim of the jar.
