If you look at reviews of the Angel Homebrew stuff, pretty sure it’s all from the same factory in China just different branding

They are good quality for the price, if I didn't have the snub nose fermenters that would be my choice. It is also possible to make a few alterations and apply some pressure, as long as you don't try to use the clips to retain the lid at pressure. They will break the spot welds.
