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 have an old one that broke and I used it all the time to make food last longer on the freezer and the frig.

    It will help organize my freezer. Right now it is a sea of aluminum foil and they aren’t keeping anything fresh and I don’t know what is in anything! Mystery packages!! And, sometimes, they open and bad freezer burn time!! I would definitely put this to good use on freezing the meat I purchase, too expensive to throw out and this would be a life saver for us!!

    I always buy my meat in bulk, this would be great because I never know if the zip freezer bags are really sealed good

    It would be great to use this to freeze portions of my homemade lasagna. I love lasagna, and my husband barely tolerates it (maybe twice a year). This way, I could make it and freeze portions for me (and let him eat leftovers from the fridge!).

    I live in the land of “hunting your own meat.” I’d seal some elk jerky, most likely!

    With all the things going on in our family, what a delight it would be to cook up a bunch of meals and have them fresh when we pull them out of the freezer. Oh! I would definitely vacuum seal fresh cheese. The possibilities are endless and have me drooling at the thought.

    I would use it to seal all the leftover stuff that gets thrown out because of freezer burn because there’s only two of us. I always make way too much food! This would be SO awesome!

    I can seal everything! I often buy in bulk and use freezer bags but they are not that great. The Food Sealer would do a much better job at keeping my food fresher longer. I hope I win!

    The food saver system has already saved me tons of money when my children were small and taking lunches to school. I vacuum sealed lunch meats and sliced my own; saving lots of money. If I win, I would gift this to a friend with children! Thanks!

      suze clarke — January 26, 2013 at 3:04 pm

      Hi Susie,
      I completely understand the cost issue. Many years ago I purchased the Food Saver model that was the basic model. Whenever you are in a position to buy one weigh the purchase cost against your needs. Then you will make the right decision.

    I love Food saver and have had one for so long that every time I use it – I expect it to die. Then what?
    We purchase our beef, poultry, and lamb in bulk and have to repackage. It all comes from local small farms in Northeast Tennessee. We purchase many other staples in bulk such as nuts, beans, rice, and dried fruits. They are all repackaged using the Food Saver. If you don’t have one. It might be worth considering.

    When it’s just two people, there are always leftovers. Add to that all the Costco/BJ jumbo-sized purchases, and you have 50% spoilage. The Food Saver would eliminate waste and fill a freezer that only holds ice cubes.

    Robyn @ Blueberries and Oats — January 26, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    This food saver would help me out soo much! I always forget to cut recipes in half so I end up having large amounts of leftovers that I try to eat for weeks on end. Of course I get completely tired of the food though and end up throwing it out eventually. Having a food saver would help me freeze food without it being so freezer-burnt I can’t eat it!

    Blessie Nelson — January 26, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    We make batches of food for the week because of our busy schedules. This machine will help us keep our weekend preparations fresh and sealed well to eat thru the week!

    this would be great for leftovers. it would save room in the fridge and save me time on doing dishes from having to use tupperware all the time. it would give me the opportunity to try new things with food since i rarely ever try to marinate anything. this would be perfect all around.

    Skylar S — January 27, 2013 at 11:44 am

    Definitely meat. It’s so much cheaper to buy in larger quantities, so having this would definitely make it easier to not risk freezer burn.

    This FoodSaver would help me keep my herbs fresh during the winter months. I love growing Rosemary, Thyme and Sage but can never use all of it before the frost hits. I also love to make Christmas cookies, so this would help me when I making cookies ahead.

    Cinda — January 27, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    This would be great for my family as I’ve had 3 move in. With 6 of us…I could buy in bulk and freeze meals. I could also prepare meals on the weekend for the entire week when I’m so busy and I don’t have the time to fix something…..I’d have it already.

    I would love to be able to freeze steaks! Our local grocery store runs awesome sales during the summer but this way we could stock up! I am also am going to try growing some herbs this year so that would be great to save also.

    Lynne — January 27, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    I regularly dry and freeze food and can fruits, veggies, jellies and sauces, but this seems SO much easier. I think I would seal meals in individual packets so that my kids could pick what they wanted. We are rarely together at mealtimes, all with crazy schedules, so I would feel like such a great mom to be able to serve them healthy meals and snacks that they liked, without as much wasted food. Plus with a huge garden in the plans for this spring, I could keep more veggies fresh!!

    I have an endocrine disorder and have to make all my own food as a result. The food saver would allow me to keep food fresh for much longer in the freezer. I like to mix my seasonings and marinades with the uncooked meat before freezing so I would definitely be doing that with this machine (http://findingthegoodinfood.blogspot.com/2012/09/pre-made-chicken-dinners.html#.UQXiB799KRk). I would also use it to make and freeze cauliflower pizza crusts for easy dinners (http://www.fatgirltrappedinaskinnybody.com/2011/06/basil-cauliflower-pizza/), delicious bacon biscuits (http://www.easyeats.com/recipes/1203-bacon-biscuits), and awesome roasted chicken leftovers (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/My-Favorite-Simple-Roast-Chicken-231348). This machine would be so amazing in my kitchen!
