Sealing Food Makes For Great Savings On Food Budget
Many families that have to buy food in a grocery store usually purchase enough to last for a week’s worth of meals. This may include meat, fruit and fresh vegetables. The problem is if for any reason some of these items are not used or cooked, they spoil easily and have to be trashed. The FoodSaver V4440 Vacuum sealing System now will take those food items and store them up to five times longer. You just take them out of the freezer or refrigerator and drop the bag into boiling water or the contents and place them into a pot or pan and cook normally.
Vacuum sealing foods will over time save you lots of money by not having to throw out food that is spoiled. You can vacuum seal meats, cheeses, vegetables, dry, wet and non-food items as well. This appliance is great for singles living in their own apartment that will help them save money on their food budget.
One huge advantage of owning a food saver is when going to the store you can purchase items in bulk, saving you money, and then vacuum sealing them to be used whenever you need to use them for a meal later.
This model FoodSaver is a 2-in-1 appliance that allows you to vacuum seal using bags, canisters, and containers. It has a convenient place to store rolls and a cutter to cut them to the size you need. The storage compartment can hold up to a 25 foot size roll to a maximum width of 11 inches.
The bags and roll that comes with the starter kit are BPA free. It also has a nice dishwasher-safe drip tray that holds excess liquids during the sealing process. It is also easy to remove for cleaning and is dishwasher safe.
The FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System helps keep food fresh up to 5 times longer, compared to ordinary storage methods, allowing you to save up to $2700 per year (based on buying in bulk, on sale, and preventing waste). The system removes air, one of the main causes of mold and food spoilage, from bags and creates an airtight seal to lock in freshness.
This vacuum sealer comes with a 5-year limited warranty.
FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing Appliance Tips
Below are some tips on using the FoodSaver appliance:
- Do not use the appliance on wet or hot surfaces, or near a heat source.
- Wait 20 seconds between seals to allow the appliance to cool.
- Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or heated oven.
- Extreme caution must be used when moving products conta
ining hot liquids.
- To protect against electric shock, do not immerse any part of appliance, power cord or plug in water or other liquid. Unplug the cord from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning.
- Do not operate appliance with a damaged power cord or plug and operate the appliance if it malfunctions or is in any way damaged.
- Avoid overfilling, always leave 4-inches of bag material between bag contents and top of the bag. This allows room for the bag material to cinch tightly against the food and prevents the bag from pulling out of the vacuum channel during the sealing process. Then leave at least one additional inch of bag material for each time you plan to reuse the same bag.
- During the vacuum packaging process, small amounts of liquids, crumbs or food particles can be inadvertently pulled into the Vacuum Channel. Empty the Drip Tray and clean it after each use.
- When you are vacuum packaging items with sharp edges (dry spaghetti, silverware, etc.), protect bag from punctures by wrapping item in soft cushioning material, such as a paper towel. You may want to use a canister or Mason jar instead of a bag.
- When using accessories, remember to leave one inch of space at top of canister or container.
- To prevent wrinkles in the seal when vacuum packaging bulky items, gently stretch bag flat while inserting bag into vacuum channel and continue to hold bag until vacuum pump starts.
Your FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System has a special Quick Marinate Cycle which will last about ten minutes. The FoodSaver Quick Marinating Canister (not included) is the perfect FoodSaver accessory for marinating foods.
During the Marinate Cycle, the vacuum pump will “hold” the vacuum for several minutes then release the vacuum, allowing the food to “rest” for 30 seconds. This process then repeats. This “pulsing” action of “vacuuming and resting” will allow for quicker more flavorful marinating.
Important Note: During the Quick Marinate Cycle, make sure knob on lid of the Quick Marinating Canister is set to OPEN. Do not set knob to Vacuum
during the Marinate Cycle.
To preserve food safely, after completing the marinating cycle, the appliance will signal with short beeps to indicate your Quick Marinate Cycle is completed. Press any button to silence the signal. You may now cook or refrigerate your marinated food.
