Food vacuum sealers can help you save money by allowing you to store your food for longer time periods before it goes bad. You can also use them store meats, chicken, and fish in marinading liquid or sauces to enhance their flavor. Adding a vacuum sealer to your kitchen can help you save time and money in the kitchen.
Depending on how often you plan on using your food sealer there are several factors to take into account. Built in bar roll storage makes it a lot easier to use. Models equipped with a hose attachment make it possible to seal zip top bags and canisters. Pulse mode gives you the ability to seal more delicate items. All of these models are perfect for sous-vide cooking. For people who plan on using it often, the higher price of a vacuum sealing system is a smart investment because it’s much easier to use.

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.
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 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.
