Most housewives nowadays resort to freezing poultry, meat, fish and other food supplies in large amounts in order to lessen their grocery trips. Freezing foods for later use, however, entails proper techniques and tools to maximize their storage life. One technique in storing food is by using food savers. Food savers come in various forms: canisters, glass jars, containers with plastic covers and covered tins. The most widely used in households now are zipped bags, freezer bags, food saver rolls, plastic bag sealers, and tin sheets.
The use of food saver bags, tin sheets and plastic bag sealers has become popular among U.S. households. But with long storage, food may become stale and freezer-burned if they are not stored correctly. Thus vacuum food storage with the use of food sealers was introduced to remove the air in plastic bags and then to seal them tight so the food stays fresh in the freezer longer.
There are many food sealer products in the market and almost all of them prove to be reliable kitchen gadgets. Here are some of these products for you to study and compare.
