FoodSaver 2-in-1 Vacuum Sealer Review
The folks at FoodSaver sent me a vacuum sealer to review and tell you about. It’s the FoodSaver 4800 Vacuum Sealer System which is the first of its kind for FoodSaver!
I was really impressed with how pretty the new FoodSaver is on my countertop. And, apparently without even trying, all my appliances are black and silver – so it fit right in! It’s smaller than the FoodSaver I used to have (which I brought to the cabin). It has a drawer where the removable drip tray is, which allows it to be smaller on the countertop. It’s easy to use and clean, especially since the drip tray is removable. The vacuum works great to suck air out of the container which helps preserve food that much longer. If you’re not familiar with FoodSaver, that’s such a nice feature compared to other heat sealing appliances.
The FoodSaver® 4800 Series Vacuum Sealer is “2 in 1” because it works with heat seal bags and rolls for long-term storage, and with its retractable accessory adapter you can use it with vacuum zipper bags, canisters and containers for short-term storage!
I already have quite a few FoodSaver containers and they are compatible with all FoodSaver models that work with canisters (my sister has collected several sets and passed them along to me!) They are great for storing leftovers in the fridge. The food lasts much longer in FoodSaver canisters compared to Gladware and Ziploc containers or even Tupperware or Rubbermaid containers. That’s because you can use the FoodSaver to remove the air from the container, and in that air are the “things” that cause food to start to mold and go bad. Remove the air and it will stay fresher longer.
Actually, the FoodSaver® system keeps food fresh up to five times longer, helps prevent freezer burn, and saves families up to $2,700 a year when buying food in bulk and saving it with FoodSaver. That’s a lot of money, just for changing a few simple habits.
