    Default My new foodie goodie


    This is too stinkin' cool. I didn't know if it would work so I only
    bought one, dang it. Going to get more when I go back to town Tuesday.
    It's a bag cap. The bag of lentils was too full so I had to pour some
    out. Looks like I'm cooking lentils tonight.

    It comes in two pieces, two complimentary colored pieces at that.
    http://i25.tinypic.com/21lsll0.jpg

    The inner ring fits over the bag of rice, or beans or what ever you
    use from the bag you bought it in. The bag is brought up through the
    inside of the ring and folded back over the ring.

    The snapping cap fits over the bag and ring.

    Keeping the contents from spilling out until you want them to.

    Yippieee!! no more hunting up rubber bands and scotch tape to keep the
    bags closed.

    Neat! Works on the same design Wilton uses for "couplers" for cake
    decorating bags & tips. Except that the coupler ring screws onto the
    first part (with the tip in the middle). It says COPCO - was it
    expensive?

    I was reading the little tag that was on it and the copco logo and
    copco bag cap are trademarks of Wilton. I think they are pretty
    clever.
    I guess thinking if something is expensive or not is relative. The
    price of it is $4.99.

    I found it in a little kitchenware shop. It's a Wilton Industries
    product, the cake decorating company. Might find it were other Wilton
    products are sold.

    I dump dry tuff like lentils into old Mason jars. Also, those cubic
    type plastic jars stuff like rice comes in with wide mouths are also
    good storage.

    Just thought I'd offer a 'free' alternative.

    Thanks for that Koko.

    There are two distributors in Australia, and neither stocks the caps.

    I'm sure they'll hit our shores in the next couple of years though.

    It does look cool but I don't think it would work for me.

    1. Plastic bags tip over and are hard to store upright.
    2. We get mice in the fall and they chew through the bags.
    I store most plastic bagged stuff in canning jars or in the freezer.

    Five bucks. They have other sizes and prices.
    If you can't find them locally you can get them at the Wilton cake

    LOL! I could really use some of these. So many things come in plastic
    bags. I wonder if it would work on those that are more like celophane?

    We could probably market several variations of the original, depending on
    what's being dispensed.

    Did you say where you found these; did I miss that?
