Ordering Vacuum Food Sealers, Food Savers

One of the best ways to preserve food is freezing.  Freezing keeps the flavor and texture better than any other method available to home cooks.  However, freezer burn, the dehydration of frozen foods causes a lot of waste.  The best way to prevent it and make your frozen foods last longer and taste better, is to remove as much air as possible, and to use thick plastic containers.  Vacuum food sealers, like the FoodSaver brand do this, and I've been using them for over 25 years.

Here are a variety of food sealers, at the best prices I could find. Scroll down this page for photos, descriptions, prices and ordering information. See this page for Canners (all types).

Everything can be shipped by a variety of methods, including overnight, if you have a canning emergency!

SC Johnson #70055 Ziploc Vacuum Pump/Bags

Ziploc Vacuum Pump & Bags, For Vacuum Storage To Keep Frozen Food Fresh Longer & Prevent Freezer Burn, Blake: I really like this one.  I use it for shirt term storage in both the fridge and freezer.  I put a half an avocado in 3 days ago, and the cut surface of the avocado is still bright green!  I still like my FoodSaver better for long term freezer storage, but this is perfect for short term because the bags are reuseable and resealable!
