By keeping air out and sealing freshness in, this home vacuum-packaging system eliminates freezer burn and keeps foods fresh and delicious up to five times longer than conventional storage methods.
The countertop appliance not only keeps food fresh longer, it also helps save money–no more having to throw away freezer-burned meat, moldy produce, or forgotten leftovers. Unlike most food-storage bags that only have a single layer of plastic, FoodSaver bags provide five layers, including an exclusive moisture and oxygen barrier for enhanced protection.
Equipped with SmartSeal technology and automatic bag sensing, the appliance is a snap to operate–simply insert a bag and the unit will automatically vacuum-seal it. Choose from two vacuum speeds, two seal levels, a pulse function, or marinade mode for marinating meat, chicken, or fish in minutes instead of hours. In addition, canister mode achieves the best vacuum seal on canisters and accessories, and for vacuum-packaging delicate foods, the unit’s CrushFree Instant Seal function immediately stops the vacuum process to prevent crushing.
Other highlights include LED meter progress lights, auto liquid detection, a built-in retractable hose, an integrated bag opener, and built-in bag-roll storage with a cutter. A variety of accessories come included: an 11-inch FoodSaver roll for making custom-size bags, three quart-size FoodSaver bags, and two gallon-size FoodSaver bags. With a sleek, upright design that takes up minimal counter space, the vacuum sealer measures approximately 5 by 16 by 10 inches.
