Can I Save Money with a Vacuum Sealer?
Yes, a vacuum sealer can help you stop wasting money, by using a vacuum sealer to package your food, you remove the amount of air the food comes into contact with, less air means a longer storage time, longer storage means less waste. You can dramatically increase the money you save by buying in bulk, dividing the food up into smaller amounts, and opening each package only when you need it. Dry food items will store the longest, however fruits and vegetable can last for weeks using a food storage system.
Does A Vacuum Sealer Prevent Freezer Burn?
Yes, a vacuum sealer can prevent freezer burn. By removing the air a frozen piece of meat comes into contact with, you limit the moisture, and thereby limit the amount of ice crystals that can form. The decreased amount of ice crystals will greatly reduce burn to the meat. This allows you to store your meats for longer periods of time and increase your savings.
Does a Vacuum Sealer Worked with Sous-Vide Cooking?
Sous-vide is a new style of cooking where food is gently simmered in in water before serving. Since sous vide cooking is done in water your food will have to be packed in some sort of heat safe container, usually a bag that allows heat to transfer to the food. Sous-vide cooking allows you prepare your food in advance, or cook it directly and evenly in a sauce or gravy.
Do I Need A Vacuum Sealing System?
The answer really depends on how often you will be sealing your food. A vacuum sealing system will have built-in bag storage and a cutter, this makes it much easier to use since there’s no hunting around for the storage bags. They will also come with an accessory hose which allows you to use canisters and zipper top bags. If you’re going to want to vacuum seal delicate items look for models that have a pulse setting. The V4440 or V4840 are our top rated systems, followed by the FM2435 system.
Can A Vacuum Sealer Be Used to Marinade Meats
Many models come with a wet or marinade mode, this allows you to seal meats and vegetable in flavored liquid and make your food taste better. You shouldn’t try to use liquids with a model that isn’t equipped with this feature, it won’t seal properly and will leak or damage the heat sealing element.
Can I Use Any Bags?
No, unfortunately, using bags from a different manufacturer may not work or may damage your unit. The plastics in the bags are designed to melt and seal at a specific temperature if you use different bags it may not seal properly or may melt onto your heating element causing damage. If you aren’t storing raw meat in your food bags you can reuse them as long as you wash them out properly between uses. You will lose some of the bag when you cut it open, so there is a limit to how many times you can reuse a bag.
Can I Use Canisters and Containers?
If you choose a vacuum sealing system that comes with an accessory hose you will be able to use it with canisters and containers. You will have to purchase the canisters and containers that come with a vacuum sealing port, you can’t use just any container. Vacuum seal canisters come with a one-way air valve that allows air to be drawn out without letting it back in. One big advantage of using canisters is you can stack and store food items much more efficiently.
