Vacuum Sealing Machines for Food



Recommended Posts

Anyone ever use a vacuum sealing machines for food? It is frustrating to see food go to waste, and things don't always freeze so well. For example, I bought a pack of pre-cooked turkey meatballs. There are about 15 meatballs in the pack, and my husband doesn't really like them. I like variety, and I don't care for eating the same leftovers every day for a week (2 days max, usually). I don't know how well they would freeze, and I'm wondering if I should buy a vacuum sealer. That way I can also cut fish filets and chicken breasts in half before freezing them too. Anyone use one?

Heck yeah! They're tons of fun. I vacuum seal everything. You can even vacuum seal clothes you want to store for a long time.

I have an old food saver and love it. I make a big vat of Beans and vac seal them in small batches to freeze. Same with Soups (I freeze them the soups first, then take them out of their containers and seal them up). Food lasts for AGES!

I also buy blocks of good cheese and cut of a few ounces at a time, then cube them and put them in snack bags of 1 oz. I vac seal the rest of the block. Keeps so much longer.

I too vacuum seal!

The trick with the turkey meatballs is to go ahead and cook them in sauce. Then bag/tag em. They have less of a leftover taste if the sauce is cooked into them.

I make homemade meatballs 1x per year. And we just ate the last package last weekend (1 year later). LOL!

I don't use my food saver a lot but i have definitely saved money with it. Getting anything more than 2 chicken thighs or more than 3oz of beef can go to waste since I live by myself and not getting home until 7pm some nights does not make me want to cook.
