I like buying in bulk to save at the grocery store but that means freezing food for long term. To keep it from being freezer burn I used the ACRATO Food Vacuum Packing Machine. This worked great removing the air and sealing the bags. You must read the manual and follow the directions to get the results and to enjoying using this item. Once you know how to operate it properly you will find it to be a nice kitchen accessory. I also have a garden and like to freeze veggies and herbs to use long after the garden has diminished with our short growing season and this keeps them fresh to enjoy in the winter months.
I like to use this to seal other items besides food too. I sealed my insurance papers and keep them in the freezer for safekeeping in case of a house fire. It also comes in handy when hiking camping or canoeing. Vacuum sealing clothes especially socks will take up less space and keep them dry. I even sealed my cell phone. It allowed me to text but kept it safe from water. Medication was another item I sealed. I also vacuum sealed some food items I did not want moisture to get into such as the salt, pancake batter and trail mix This machine is so handy all the time.
The only thing I didn't like to vacuum seal was anything with liquids because the vacuum would suck up the juice and once wet it doesn't seal. When sealing any liquids I would recommend watching the liquid closely and stop before it reaches the top of the bag and seal immediately. This keeps it from getting the seal area wet. It's not completely air free but sure is close and will keep good. If it does get wet I had to dry it with paper towels so it was a pain. I just paid attention and stopped it short of going to the vacuum sealer and that worked.
I am happy with the functions and performance of this vacuum sealer. I have used it several times and a wet seal was the only issue I have had which is an issue I would expect that would occur with any vacuum sealer.
