Foodsaver

Just got it in the mail today. Found a bunch of cool stuff to vacuum seal. This thing works awesome and I'm very happy with it. Dangerously addicting though. I might run out of bags tonight.

If the model you bought has the accessory port, I highly recommend the mason jar adapter. It allows you to vacuum seal foods you dont want crushed right in your inexpensive mason jars that cost about $0.75ea($8/case).

Everyone that I know who has one loves it. I still haven't bought one yet because I think I would just look for things to seal for no reason.

Yep - they're like a label-maker that way. You LOOK for things to use it on.

I used to keep my spare clothes, towel and washcloth vacuum-sealed in the vehicle ghb stuff. That way they not only took up less space, they were always clean and dry as well. Don't anymore, as I don't tend to let things set unused as long as I used to.

I do keep my truck carbine in a sealed foodsaver bag though. Cleaned well, oiled lightly, sealed in the bag, and then stuck in its case; keeps it protected from gunk & condenstion both.

We have sealed all kinds of stuff. Don't use the premade bags.. get the rolls of bag material..

If you haven't already, sign up for Foodsavers email notices.

They have some very good sales on supplies and sealers.

Costco is running a special for the bag pack next week, with their coupon, FYI.

I use it for food, work, prep stuff. All practical.

Its a must if you process your own deer. Properly done I think the meat is better after being defrosted than wrapping in butcher paper.

Pat the meat dry with a paper towel, seal, and then freeze as quickly as possible. Dont overload the freezer all at once. Having some airspace will freeze the meat faster making it better when defrosted.
