New Gadget Find! Banana Seals

Various pictures of the Banana Seals in actionThere are clips, clothespins, and rubber bands to keep bags of food fresh, but they always pop off and take up too much room in our kitchen drawers. RFT has discovered a cool new solution in Banana Seals, reusable seals that “peel” like a banana and are guaranteed to stay closed.

Gets the job done.

The slim design make them easy to fit into drawers and we found them perfect for all types of bagged food, including chips, dry baking goods, coffee, and pre-mixed salad greens. An added bonus is that they even work in the freezer to keep away “freezer burn.” Banana Seals come in small to large sizes with the largest costing about $2 — a real bargain from our perspective. You can buy Banana Seals at stores like Rite Aid, Ace Hardware, or Target. Or check them out at

    None of the listed stores (Rite Aid, Ace Hardware, or Target) have this product on their website. Any other places?

    Hi Jay,

    Apparently, the Banana Seal store has had difficulty getting and keeping them in retail stores. However, they’re readily available (at least for now) online at Amazon, Efficient Living, and at Banana seal. Try these links:!our-store
