When using this vacuum sealer for best sealing, it has a moist/dry food mode, which automatically adjusts the seal level to ensure that the seal is secure, reliable, and airtight. If you are vacuum sealing meats and/or fish with a lot of liquid, we suggest that you pre-freeze them for 1 – 2 hours prior to vacuum packing them in a FoodSaver Bag. This will guarantee that the meats and fish keep their juices and shape, as well as assisting in ensuring a proper seal. Lay individual serves on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for 1 – 2 hours for making individual servings of soup. Remove from the freezer and place in a FoodSaver bag with a vacuum sealer.
Fill a vacuum bag with your favourite veggies and store them in the freezer for up to three years. Simply adhere to the following guidelines: Vegetables must be blanched before they may be vacuum packed for storage. This method suppresses enzyme activity, which may result in a loss of flavour, colour, and texture due to the decrease of enzyme activity. Blanch vegetables in boiling water or in the microwave until they are soft but not mushy, about 2 minutes. Leafy greens and peas should be blanched for 1 to 2 minutes; snap peas, sliced zucchini, or broccoli should be blanched for 3 to 4 minutes; carrots should be blanched for 5 minutes; and corn on the cob should be blanched for 7 to 11 minutes. After blanching, immediately submerge the vegetables in cold water to stop the cooking process. Finally, blot the vegetables dry with a clean towel before vacuum sealing them in the freezer. Cooking foods in a boiling water bath helps to maintain their flavour, colour, and texture. Place vegetables in the freezer for 1–2 hours, or until they are totally frozen. After the vegetables have been frozen, take them from the baking sheet and vacuum-package them in a FoodSaver Bag to preserve their freshness. Once they have been vacuum packed, reintroduce them to the freezer. To prepare individual portions for freezing, place the blanched vegetables on a baking sheet in separate pieces and space them apart so that they do not come into contact. Consequently, they are prevented from collapsing into a single massive block. Additionally, FoodSaver Bags may be transported straight from the freezer to the microwave or boiling water without the need for additional steps. Adding a pat or two of butter and some herbs to the FoodSaver Bag before freezing is a good idea. After that, just boil the whole bag of vegetables to produce a delightful side dish for your meal. Please keep in mind that cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, and turnips) naturally create gases while they are being stored. This means that after blanching, they must be kept entirely in the refrigerator.
It is simple to clean and maintain this kitchen gadget since it has a drip tray that can be removed and washed in the dishwasher. Keep the freshness of the food: Meat stored in the freezer using the FoodSaver technique may last for up to three years and still taste fresh, flavorful, and free of freezer burn when properly prepared.. Meals made ahead of time, leftovers, and vegetables kept in the refrigerator will stay fresh for up to a week rather than decomposing in a few days as they would otherwise.

Our primary priority is to ensure everyone’s safety.

It is simple to get rid of the air that contributes to freezer burn and degradation by simply pushing the vacuum and seal bar in the appropriate direction.
