A vacuum sealer is a great way to save money on groceries, while enjoying better tasting foods. It allows shoppers to take advantage of grocery sales because foods can be split easily into smaller portions for storing or freezing until the family is ready to eat it. The super tight seal ensures that the flavor is kept in and other tastes and odors are kept out of the seal for fresh, great tasting foods every time. This is just one kitchen appliance that saves money and makes life simpler.
A vacuum sealer is ideal for freezing meats and vegetables until it's time to cook and eat them. Newer models are compact and lightweight, taking up very little room on the countertop. These units are available in common colors like black and chrome to match other appliances in the kitchen, such as the coffee maker. Most models have a built-in storage compartment for keeping the hot seal roll handy yet out of the way. These sealers also have a cutter to cut the hot seal and retractable hoses. Look for models by Food Saver, Sharper Image and others.
When it's time to defrost the sealed foods, microwave ovens and convection ovens are especially handy. Both microwaves and convection ovens offer defrost settings that quickly thaw meats, seafood, vegetables and more without drying or cooking the foods. A convection oven can be used to take foods from completely frozen to fully cooked.
Another great tool for preserving foods is the food dehydrator. Dehydrators are a great way to get the most out of grocery store sales on fruits and turn them into healthy snacks for later. Like a vacuum sealer, dehydrators can be used to preserve other foods, such as meats.
Wine can also be preserved for a later time with the use of a wine vacuum sealer. These sealers remove air from the bottle and create a tight seal, keeping wine fresh for days after it has been opened.
