What is a Vacuum Sealer

In this review, we consider such a useful thing as a vacuum sealer or food saver. Air conditions are favorable for breeding all kinds of food bacteria and cause rapid food deterioration. Besides, the air negatively affects the quality and taste of the food. Meat, fish, any raw or cooked food spoils quickly, even in the refrigerator. To make the food last longer, you can buy a vacuum sealer. This device removes the oxygen from the food package and in this way considerably prolongs the shelf life. For most meat food the average expiration date varies between 7-14 days while using Food Saver you can extend it up to 40 days. Also, use to find out the weight of the products which you want to seal.

You can also preserve your food by dehydrating it. Dehydration means removing all moisture, thus prolonging the food's shelf life. The good thing is that all the healthy elements stay intact. To know more about this, please read our review on food dehydrators.

What Features to Compare

Choosing a vacuum sealer, you should pay attention to Application Area. A Food Saver can be divided into three categories which define their field of use: kitchen, outdoor and general. We will examine each type separately.

  • Outdoor - this type of a vacuum sealer is more mobile than others. Not only do outdoor vacuum sealers take very little space, they are also battery-powered and energy-saving. It might be not the best option for a big amount of food, but for small packs it will do a great job. 
  • Kitchen - this category of vacuum sealers is ideal for sealing products at home. Such device has a moderate capacity, which allows working with different types of packaging material (reusable bags or a food film).
  • General - these devices demonstrate a lot of power and mostly purchased for vacuuming a big amount of food. This type will be suitable not only for home, but also for use in restaurants. On the contrary to smaller devices, these vacuum sealers are capable of processing most existing packaging material, including all sorts of films and bags.

Another important criterion to pay attention to is Functions. Except such main tasks as air evacuation and product procurement, vacuum sealers offer a lot of other functions. Automatic or manual operation will provide additional opportunities for preparing food continually. Wet or dry pumping is used for various types of workpieces. Functionality may differ depending on the type of a vacuum sealer. If your device works with the food film, then you may also find a knife and a bar in a pack. These extra accessories make it easy to measure things and cut the film into the required pieces. 

In the part Maintenance, you will see how to use this or that model in particular. Pay attention to consumable material which a vacuum sealer uses. There are two types of packaging material: packaging film and reusable bags. Vacuum sealers are also classified according to their size. Manufacturers work hard to improve the quality of their equipment as well as supply consumers with high-quality bags and films.
