Product Review The Foodsaver

The FoodSaver can be incredibly helpful in the kitchen. It’s designed to minimize spoilage, extend shelf life and maintain the quality and freshness of foods. If you’re in the market for a FoodSaver appliance, the following models are worth considering. (Check the FoodSaver website for current prices and availability.)

Vacuum sealer

The FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System SmartSeal Technology that comes with an Oval Marinator Canister, Heat Seal Roll, and 12 Pre-Made Quart Size Heat Seal Bags has helped millions of households keep food fresh in the refrigerator, freezer and pantry. This FoodSaver system, which costs around $159.99, vacuum seals the food and keeps it fresh up to five times longer than conventional storage methods.

Vacuum sealing is a simple way of preserving food. This model also makes separating foods easy and meal planning effortless. You can open, reseal or reuse the bags. They can be frozen or boiled, or placed in the microwave.

Upgraded version

An upgraded version of this product, the FoodSaver Professional III Vacuum Sealer Kit, sells for around $239.95. It’s a top-of-the-line machine with a wide range of added features, yet simple to use — all you need to do is push a button. It vacuums and seals automatically. Using the 5-Level Seal Control Switch, you can control the amount of air for a perfect seal.

Piston pump

The FoodSaver Professional III Powerful Piston Pump removes air quickly and creates a commercial-quality vacuum. The Heavy Duty Sealing Strip with Teflon Coating seals bags airtight. Likewise, the FoodSaver 5-ply Bags are a durable and effective barrier against oxygen and moisture. They protect your food against freezer burn, and the drip tray is dishwasher safe. Freezer foods stay fresher and can last for weeks with vacuum packing.

Magic vac

The Deni Magic Vac Champion Kit 1750 that cost $243.95 is a fully automatic vacuum sealing appliance with specially designed and patented airtight bags. It is for people concerned with managing their food budgets more efficiently.

Foods in vacuum packages such as cheeses, delis, and meats maintain their taste and quality even when re-sealed in Deni Magic Vac bags. Frozen meats, fish, and vegetables sustain their fresh flavor and texture as well. Dry goods such as coffee, rice, flour, and nuts will also have a much longer shelf life when vacuum packed using Deni Magic Vac Champion Kit 1750. You can also reseal food in its original package using this wonderful machine. This FoodSaver’s powerful piston pump design and patented lid locking system ensure maximum extraction of air and also help prevent freezer burn.

In today’s economy savings are a top priority, and although food storage systems like these are not cheap, they’re efficient at keeping food fresh and will save you money in the long run.
