Vacuum Food Sealers are devices that every modern homemaker should have in their kitchen. They are available in either battery-operated hand-held models or nice looking units that plug-in and sit on the countertop. In short, they remove air (oxygen) from plastic bags of food and seal them shut. Easy to use, just divide the food into the bags that come with the unit, insert the neck of the bag into the sealer, push the lid closed to lock and push a button to operate. The air is removed by vacuum and when the proper pressure is obtained, the heat sealer is activated to seal the bag closed.
These bags of food can then be stored in the freezer for up to three years before using. The Vacuum Food Sealers are lightweight, sleek designed quality apparatuses that are easy to store or take up limited space on the counter. Quite a bit of time and money is saved when food can be purchased in bulk quantities, and either separated into prepared portion sizes and stored in large quantities that won’t spoil.
The modern homemaker can save money with Vacuum Food Sealers by shopping less often and buying food in economical bulk prices. By shopping less, the economic advantages start to multiply into other areas like saving money on automobile costs. You are driving less, buying less gasoline, causing less wear and tear on the car and keeping the mileage figure on the car lower.
The average family throws away 25% of purchased food monthly, from not preparing leftovers and/or fresh foods properly. By storing leftovers in bags sealed with Vacuum Food Sealers reduces food waste to zero. Frozen foods packaged in sealer bags that are devoid of oxygen will avoid freezer burn and will not lose their taste or nutritional value.
Vacuum Sealer accessories include containers to seal fruits and vegetables in to keep them fresh longer without crushing the contents. The containers can also be used to marinate meals by opening the pores of the meat to let the marinade penetrate deeper into the meat for a better flavor. The containers can also be used for storing dry food items such as tea, flour, cereal, noodles, chips, crackers and rice.
The home Food Saver Sealers are perfect for families that grow their own fruits and vegetables. They are not restricted to eating these quality healthy foods just during the growing season, but can package them with Food Saver Sealers and store them in the freezer cheaply to enjoy all year-long. What a delight for the family to have garden grown tomatoes and corn on the cob in December!
The concept of vacuum sealing for food has been used in commercial packaging for years to maintain the quality of the food products and now is available for all conscientious homemakers. These same devices can be used for storing non-food items as well. Sealing items to keep them dry for camping or boating trips is a big plus. Because all the air is removed from the bags when sealing the amount of space that items take up is an added benefit for packing.
