Vacu-Seal: Compact and Convenient

Written by Deb Ng - February 9, 2008 4 Comments

Vacu-Seal Starter Kit

I’ll admit it. The Vacu-Seal was sent to me to review for this blog and another of my blogs, Simply Thrifty. I probably wouldn’t have gone out and bought it because I use (and reuse) ziplock bags and old Chinese food containers to store my food. Was I ever pleasantly surprised!

The first thing I noticed was how lightweight and compact the Vacu-Seal is. It doesn’t take up my precious counter space and fits neatly inside a drawer with no problem. My kitchen is small, I don’t have room for anything on my counters. The compactness of the Vacu-Seal is truly appreciated.

The second thing I noticed was how easy to use. I didn’t even need to look at the instructions, it’s kind of self explanatory. Put the Vacu-Seal nozzel into the valve on the reusable bag, and press a button. Really, it’s that simple.

The Vacu-Seal comes with reusable zipper lock bags so you save some coin on foil, bags or containers. You can use it to marinate food in minutes or to keep your leftovers in the fridge longer. Because the bags are zipper lock, there’s no cutting.

I’m definitely going to enjoy this!

    Would you please tell me where I can purchase the medium bags for the Vacu-Seal? I will need them in the near future. Thanks.

    I’ve found some bags at Kroger’s where I do my shopping. It’s in with the other zipper bags and sandwich baggies. Usually I look for the vacuseal itself in order to find it. I’m going to try and add a link here for you for amazon, they have the medium vacuseal bags from ace hardware online.
