FoodSaver, the best new addition to my kitchen!

Well friends, I have had this appliance for a month or so now and LOVE it! Vacuum sealing food in plastic keeps it fresher, longer, saves space in my freezer and compared to double zip locked bags, I can actually see what is sealed and frozen.

My soft pull apart dinner rolls have stayed baking day fresh, shrink wrapped and frozen. You just need to stop the vacuum motor before it squishes the rolls, breads etc. What sold me on the product was the idea, I could re-heat my slow smoked BBQ pulled pork butt sous vide style. I comes out just like day one pulled pork.

As a serious cook, I give this appliance 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!

 

Happy baking! Ski

That's funny. I just took mine off my countertop and put it into the pantry yesterday cause I found I wasn't using it much. I bought it for the mason jar sealing accessory, which is awesome. Guess I just need to get into the kitchen more.

...such as long term freezer storage of any fish we catch, but the cost of the bags drives me crazy.  :(

I figure the extra cost for the rolls will be more than made up for, with better preserved food and less spoilage. I am also willing to pay the additional cost for the benefit of re-heating food sous vide style in hot water. The last was THE selling point for me.
