Default Who has best Oxygen Absorber prices?



Advertise Here

Need to order O2 absorbers. Where have you found the best price?

Also, they seem to come in packs of 100. I don't plan to use 100 at a time. How do you keep them all from going bad if you open the bag or does each one come individually wrapped?

I stuck the ones I didn't use in a large mouth quart mason jar & screwed the lid/ring down. Yeah, it created quite a suction. No idea who has the best price now. Mine were bought pre-Y2k.

I have bought mine from Sorbent Systems.

They sell 1500cc absorbers for $14.90/50, and that's not a misprint. That's enough for a 5-gallon bucket, and for the 1-gallon bags.

http://sorbentsystems.com/order_O2.html

They're all I buy any more--I don't see any reason to buy the smaller ones just to save a couple cents. And even if you feel the need to use two of them in a big bucket (I don't), they're still cheaper by far than the 2000cc ones.

I also buy 1-gallon mylars from them. They cost $35.80 for 100, or just under 36 cents apiece.

http://sorbentsystems.com/promotion3.html

What I do (or have done) when I buy such things is get 150 of the 1500cc O2 absorbers, 100 of the 1-gallon mylar bags, and then I buy my 5-gallon mylar bags from Baytec, where, if you buy 25 at a time, drops the cost per bag including shipping under $2 each:

http://www.bayteccontainers.com/myla...ble-20x30.html

If you have someone you can split an order with, you can really do some damage with these.

http://beprepared.com

site promoter, and they have them on sale this month.

I ordered some cheaper off the net and got screwed. If you don't buy from someone reputable you will probably pay for it in the long run.

Emergency Essentials has always stood behind their products.

Here is how the oxy absorber scam works.

The red pill turns collor if the absorbers are bad right? Well in a pack of 20 who is to say 10 are doing the job keeping the pill red, and the other 10 are dead?

Trust me, go with the company that's bags Consistently seal. I have been screwed over more times than I can count by going cheap....

Even if Emergency Essentials is bargain basement cheap. Also to remember to get the right size for the right sized container.

Best prices I've found for the 300cc size is at the cannery also. I've just recently started buying my 1 gal mylar off ebay because they are 10" x 14"....very good for straight pasta. At 125 for $30 delivered they are also cheaper than the cannery bags also.

I have also used mason jars to store unused oxygen absorbers, if you need to fill some voids just add some rice to the bottom of the jar. It is best to reduce the amount of head space in the jar as much as possible.

The rice filler is a good idea I hadn't thought of. I break my 100 packs down to thirds and put 2 thirds in vacuum packs and the leftovers of the last third in a pint jar. Rice is just the ticket for the dead space.

I also freeze my 02 absorbers before I work with them and store the jar in the freezer until I need them again. The cold brings any reaction to a halt.

Also bought 750 cc absorbers which seem rare as well - 25 for $13.99. If you figure 2000 cc for 5 gallons - 1/5 of that would be 400. I like to overdo things so 750 sounds and works great. Just one suggestion.
We have beautiful 5.5mil 10x16 1 gallon bags for $.75 and less for larger quantities. We just introduced 'mini-cases' of oxygen absorbers; 10 packs of either 300cc or 1000cc for $65 with free shipping. And that's before a 10% discount with the code in my signature. Hope you'll check us out some time.

Wow! @.@ That's A LOT better than Sorbent Systems even considering the 5-gal bags are half a mil thinner. For that price, what's half a mil!

Sorbent Systems has it for me. Not based on price, but on service.

I got a batch from them that was sealed, but had air in the package. I called customer service and they sent me another order out via UPS. No quibble at all. Got the order in 3 days. There was a return shipping label and the UPS driver had a delivery note requesting thet he give me a few minutes to open the box, inspect the shipment and seal up the bad absorbers in the box. There was a strip of tape for me to re-seal the box in the shipment. Three days after I got the new shipment, Sorbent Systems emailed me saying they got the bad order.

It's not what they do to get your money that's important. It's how they treat you after they have it.

Im so confused when it comes to this stuff! How do you figure out how many cc's you need? I will get mylar gallon size and put a few into my 5 gallon buckets, but am not sure how many cc's are needed per bag.

As a general rule of thumb, use 300cc's per gallon Mylar Bag. If storing something with a lot of airspace like pasta, use 2 just to be sure.
