Reality Check

  • Claim:

    One touch connected vacuum system

  • Reality:

    Silo is a product that attempts to make the next step in the evolution of vacuum sealing containers a reality without trying to reinvent the entire process. With the patented containers, Silo is able to accomplish a loosely defined "one touch" system.

  • Claim:

    5x fresher food.

  • Reality:

    5x is a specific number to describe a wide range of possible results for thousands of different foods. However, the effectiveness of vacuum sealed preservation is a proven method.

  • Claim:

    SImple

  • Reality:

    Simplicity is the hero claim of the Silo. There is nothing else on the market that can remotely compare to the clever and simple user experience that the Silo is attempting to create.

  • Claim:

    An app to help you run your kitchen.

  • Reality:

    The Silo team has thoughtfully been designing an app that can help manage inventory, storage dates, and even ties Alexa into the voice interaction. Alexa is a great addition to the Silo, the practicality of it, is still uncertain but a great step in the right direction.

Bottom Line

Silo is an excellent leap forward for the preservation of every day food items. A solid team has worked together to beta test, test some more, and present a clear Kickstarter campaign. The shipping date is appropriately set for July of 2019, so please take note. Alexa is a thoughtful add on that may potentially feel somewhat overwhelming for certain users, but it can be disabled. The feature that shines with Silo is the one touch patented element for quick and easy use for the everyday user. As the campaign grows in popularity keep an eye out for the possibility of shipping dates to be pushed back in order to accommodate the large quantities.
