Hi world! I’m Celia and I am writing a ‘real’ blog for the first time! This blog is all about vacuum sealers and how to use them correctly.
When it comes to kitchen appliances, my favorite has to be my trusty vacuum sealer. I love its simplicity and the fact it can save me money and help save food which, in its own small way, is even helping to save the planet!
Ever since I bought my first vacuum sealer, I had so much fun with it that I literally can’t stop looking for things to vacuum pack! It has so many practical uses such as :
- pack food or snacks into small bags to keep fresh
- vacuum seal to avoid freezer burn on food
- seal those fruit to preserve them for baking
And it’s not only food you can save with a vacuum sealer.
Over the past 10 years, I’ve been gathered tips from everybody and packing lots of other stuff in vacuum sealed bags as well. Madness you say, well maybe but look at what I’ve done:
- vacuum pack linen to save storage space
- get those documents sealed to avoid yellowing
Vacuum sealers usually come in the external type or the chamber type. The external sealers can do the job of sealing and removing the air from the bag attached outside the machine, while the chamber sealers requires you to place the whole bag in the sealer and close the lid. Then the air is removed and the bag is sealed. There are also simple handheld vacuum sealers for basic vacuum packing.
Vacuum sealing food means that all air is removed from the bag so bacteria will not grow on the food. This method will extend the shelf life of the food and is usually done commercially for food that is sold in stores. But now the vacuum sealer proves to be useful in common households as well – I have many friends who use it and I recommended my mum too.
Anyway, before I go off on one of my famous rambling posts I’d just like to thank you for visiting and I hope you find all of the information you need.
