I bought this item to add volume to my food storage. I haven't eaten this yet, but I have eaten from a few #10 cans which arrived dented. Everything so far has been very good quality. This is a lot of potatoes for the money and a very good choice for the price.

I purchased this for long term food storage so I am unable to rate the actual potato product. It arrived with the bucket inside a shipping box. When I removed the box the bucket was severely dented. I contacted Augason and they told me that it sometimes happens due to changes in atmosphere due to a lack of air inside the container and it should not affect the product's storage life. So I guess we will see. I thought it was a good price based on my research.
These potatoes are top quality and a good alternative to fresh especially when storage is an issue . We use these two or three times a week and a pail will last well over 3 months ( there's only two of us )
There many ways to use after reconstitution such as mashed , fried , or soups and casseroles .

With everything in the news and the undercurrent of where our Government is taking the USA, looming debt, crashing the dollar for one world order and currency- it is a scary unpredictable future. Purchase this item for peace of mind, in a drought, storm, economy crash when you are not going to be able to go to the store.
This will be easy to use if you store plenty of water to hydrate items for potato salad, fried potatoes with breakfast, in soups or for blending and cut for potato soup add so chicken bullion cubes, some dried chives, salt and pepper and you will have hearty meals in time of need.

What is the shelf life of the potatoes once the pail is opened? The Augason Farms site states that they're good for a year after they're open. This page says only one month. That's a big difference.justathot on Dec 23, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello justathot, the potato slices have a 1 year shelf life once they are opened. They have a 25 year shelf life if they are unopened and stored in a cool dry place, between 55 and 70 deg F. If you have any additional questions please feel free to let us know. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 27, 2013
