As a recipe developer and tester, continuous grocery and farmer’s market trips are part of my work schedule. I find myself shopping for ingredients three to four times a week in order to obtain the freshest ingredients and best results in my recipes.
To make my trips, time and gas mileage most effective, I needed to find a simple solution to decrease the number of shopping trips. My time could be spent developing more recipes or better yet, with my family.
Sometimes, I have so much food left over, I’m not able to preserve it in my refrigerator. Sadly, in just a few days, any leftovers rot and that is money wasted once again.
When I was asked to review the FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealer System, I jumped at the opportunity to explore everything this appliance had to offer. I was excited to try it out so I headed to my local fish market and purchased a variety of fish filets for recipes I had scheduled to develop this month.
When I received the Food Saver®, I was pleased to see how compact and durable it is. The package contained all the supplies one needs to vacuum seal with ease. Because it’s a two-in-one vacuum sealer, it not only lets you seal in heat seal bags but the handheld sealer lets you seal zipper bags. You can also seal canisters and marinate food in just a few minutes.
I found the process very simple. To seal my first set of Alaskan cod filets, the Food Saver® detected the bag and automatically sealed it for me. I didn’t have to push any buttons!
I could not be any more excited at how much time and money I will be saving. From coffee beans to asparagus, the Food Saver® will be helping me in every step of the way and will be making my life easier.
Clean up is a breeze. Liquid extracted as the vacuum sealing process occurs, is collected in a pull-out drip tray drawer that is dishwasher safe and very easy to clean.
The possibilities are endless. From storing made-ahead meals, to prepping smoothie packs, I can even grocery shop once or twice a moth and vacuum seal everything ahead of time.
