FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System Giveaway

Sleek simplicity describes the FoodSaver V3880 Fully Automatic Vacuum Sealing System (MSRP:  $179)

The FoodSaver® system keeps food fresh five times longer and prevents freezer burn.

It saves money because you can buy in bulk or when your favorite items go on sale and vacuum seal them, rather than having them go to waste.

 

Features:

 Fully automatic operation makes this model easy to operate

Two vacuum speeds (normal and gentle) and two food settings (moist and dry), take the guesswork out of food preservation

Fully automatic operation auto detects FoodSaver® bag and starts vacuum sealing

Air-tight heat seal removes air from specially designed bags. 2 vacuum speeds automatically adjust based on food type. Pulse Vac feature allows complete manual control of air removal

2 seal levels that auto detect moist or dry food

Accessory mode for containers and canisters seals any FoodSaver® container air-tight

Helps with meal preparation – the Marinate Mode allows you to take an entire day out of the cooking process

With the touch of a button, and the FoodSaver® Marinator (sold separately), you can infuse meats, poultry, fish and vegetables with flavor in minutes rather than overnight

Patented removable drip trip catches overflow liquids and is dishwasher safe

Conveniently stores the rolls and built in cutter to create custom-sized bags

Starter kit includes: 1 – 11 inch x 18 feet heat seal roll and 12 – quart-sized heat seal bags

 Meat, poultry, or fish are probably the first items that come to mind, but you can vacuum seal just about anything.

Bread, rolls, and English Muffins

    I buy nuts and seeds in bulk so I would definitely utilize this machine to keep them as fresh as the day I purchased them :)

    I would use the FoodSaver to stock up the freezer on meats, sauces, and summer veggies from the garden!

    There are only two of us in my house now and I’ve never really managed to limit my dishes for two people and my husband doesn’t really like leftovers so I love to have one of these to save my dinners to have for my lunch in the future.

    Hmm how will I use this? I think it would be sooo useful when bulk cooking for the week (or dare I say month?). What will I seal with this? How about cooked rice in batches large enough for a meal? Oh ya!

    i can no longer find bags for my seal-a-meal that i bought from sears back in the 70s. the foodsaver would be quite a step up from that. bags are available, and the foodsaver vacuum seals. seal-a-meal wasn’t vacuum.

    I just found out my best friend is having a baby! She has been trying for years. We plan to get together to bake and cook many healthy meals for her family to have in the future. This would be a life-saver!! Thanks! I have so many of your recipes pinned to make for her. (and me.)

    Hi Averie. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway. I freeze a lot of meat and without a sealer that means flash freezing everything and wrapping it separately and then bagging them & making sure I get all the air out. It’s a lot of work, expense, time and I’m sure not as sealed. This would be so helpful.

    Hugs… Tracy@CottonPickinCute</a

    I first started cooking and baking to help while Mom was at work, there were 6 of us kids so I never cooked small. Fast forward 40+ years it’s just G’Ma and I and I still can’t cook small having lots of left-overs.
    The Food Saver Sealer would be PERFECT to seal up our left-overs into multi-meals, saving us from eating the same thing 3 or 4 days in a row.
    AND, I could once again start saving a bit more money buying larger quantities and repackaging.
    It just keeps getting better!
