Food Savers keep meat, produce, and other grocery items fresh and tasty for much longer than other storage methods. Ordinary refrigerator or freezer bags just do not allow food to retain its quality the way FoodSavers custom fitted bags do. Whether you want to usually put away a few items or you really want to get serious about food storage, there are Food Savers just for you.
No matter what kind you look at be sure you consider the ones with a full sized vacuum channel. This is necessary to get the best seal on your bags. A crush-free seal is also important so that you can keep the vacuum from squeezing the bag too much when your food items are fragile. A light, fluffy piece of birthday cake can be kept in its original form rather than be crushed to crumbs.
Hands free operation makes FoodSavers convenient, especially on the models where it is done by the touch of a button. A touchpad control panel makes using Food Savers easy, especially when you are bagging heavy meats, cheeses, and vegetables. A design that preserves counter space is welcomed in any kitchen.
The most versatile models are capable of sealing all the different sizes of bags and canisters. Settings may include buttons for moist or dry foods. Roll and pen holders make it easy to make custom sized bags and mark them by date and contents. A locking latch makes it possible to keep the bag in place while the FoodSavers are sealing the contents.
Because you will be taking all the air out of the bags, you will often pull out liquids from the foods. Juices might be sucked out of the bag when you are packaging meats for example. This makes it doubly important to have an antibacterial drip tray. It works best if it can be removed for easy cleaning in the dishwasher.
Food Savers offer some extra special features, such as a DVD that comes with one model, showing ways to use the kitchen appliance to its best advantage. Look for the one year warranty on Food Savers appliances. A variety of bags are available to buy for the set.
Finding Food Savers for your kitchen is as easy as comparing the features of the different models. While some Food Savers are simple in design, others offer the full gamut of features and accessories. By comparing their features, you can choose the best model for you.
