A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11873142B2) discloses a unique container system designed to enhance sealing efficiency and visual distinctiveness. The system comprises containers with rims featuring first and second sealing parts, along with protuberances that are visually distinct and discontinuous from each other. The lids for these containers also have corresponding rims with protuberances aligned to the container rims for a secure seal. The design ensures that each protuberance of the container rim aligns with the lid's protuberance when sealed, enhancing the overall sealing effectiveness.

Furthermore, the patent details variations in the container system based on volume capacity, with different containers ranging from less than 1 cup to 3-9 cups. Each container and lid combination maintains the unique protuberance design for alignment and sealing efficiency. The system's innovative approach to sealing and visual distinction, along with the adaptability to various volume capacities, showcases a novel solution in the field of container design. The alignment of sealing areas in a vertical direction and the incorporation of concave portions in the rim further highlight the attention to detail in ensuring a secure and visually appealing container system. The patent's emphasis on specific radius measurements for the rim arcs in both containers and lids underscores the precision and engineering behind this inventive container system.
