- Why should I use Press’n Seal® instead of foil?
Using aluminum foil for storage purposes can become problematic when it comes to certain types of food. For example, when storing foods that have a high acidity level, such tomato sauce, you should not use foil as the acids can interact with the aluminum and make it erode. This results in holes in the foil where small amounts of aluminum can be transferred to your food, giving it a metallic taste.

Gently press down on the button in the center of the top lid until you feel the two lids connect. Repeat this process to lock additional lids of the same shape onto the stack. Once you have locked lids together, store the stack of connected lids in your container storage area. That way, your lids will stay organized and you’ll have the right lid when you need it.

Is 1-833-ALL-GLAD a real phone number?
Yes, it’s very real! Much like the sun, or the moon, or an electric ab stimulator, 1-833-ALL-GLAD is a real thing that exists in the real world. And as if this Glad phone number wasn’t real enough already, it’s owned by a real company — The Glad Products Company.
Like any real phone number, 1-833-ALL GLAD can be called, not called, stored in your contacts, or just scribbled onto an old grocery receipt. How real is that!
What happens when you call this Glad phone number?
Well, technically, assuming you’re calling from a cellular device, your phone will convert your voice into a radio signal, then transmit it to a cell tower. We’re not really sure what happens from there. If you’re curious, we’d suggest contacting a telecommunications specialist. You can probably find one fairly quickly via a search engine or a phone book from 1996.
Is it safe to call the Glad phone number?
As far as we know, it’s completely safe! Now, we wouldn’t recommend calling while operating a motor vehicle, or a jet ski, or an industrial-grade deli slicer, as that might venture into “not safe” territory. But as long as you’re not driving or handling any heavy machinery, you should be a-okay!
Will I need to provide any pertinent information when I call 1-833-ALL-GLAD?
