[Lock & Lock] Breathing Kimchi Containers - Stainless Steel

Introducing.... Lock & Lock's New Breathing Kimchi Container!

This new container has a patented valve which expels any gases released by the kimchi as it ferments in the container. The valve also prevents any external air from entering the container once its locked. This process helps the Kimchi retain its moisture and ferment at a normal pace - making the Kimchi tastes fresh for longer!

The container is made from stainless steel. It does not stain or soak at all, which makes clean-up a breeze! The lid has an "L" shaped silicon lining that makes the container air-tight - means no leakage! The lid is also transparent to make it easy to check on the status of your kimchi without opening it.

If you eat or make Kimchi regularly, consider purchasing a special container for it. This premium container is available in 5 sizes: 2.8L, 3.6L, 3.8L, 5.0L and 7.2L. Specific details below on how much Kimchi each container can hold.

Lock & Lock's Breathing Container 

Lock & Lock's patented air-valve releases the gas produced by Kimchi or other fermented foods - it expels it out of the container while blocking external air from seeping in.

This helps the Kimchi retain its moisture and ferment at a normal pace - Kimchi tastes fresh for longer!


  • Before first use, remove the factory sticker that is placed on the air-valve
  • To wash the valve, detach it from the lid by turning it left (counter-clockwise)
  • To re-attach, align the grooves and turn it right (clockwise) until it locks into place
  • Once locked into place, you don't need to turn the valve to release gas (it will work automatically)

Air-Tight Silicon Seal - Leakproof!

There is a "L"-shaped silicon lining that makes the container air-tight.

No leakage, no smell!

The silicon material is also anti-bacterial - no cross-contamination!

Durable, Snap-Tight Wings

These snap-on clips are made of extra durable material.

They will not bend out of shape or warp with long-term usage. 

Make a refreshing "snap" every time!

Transparent Lid for Status Check

The transparent lid makes it easy to check on the status of your Kimchi


The handle is built well and makes it easy to carry.

The larger container (7.2L) has two handles to help balance a heavy load.
