My husband and I have been looking at getting a vacuum sealer for awhile. The ones we looked at were a little pricey but the thing that actually kept us from buying one was the cost of the bags. I am so tired of throwing away food because of freezer burn. I was so happy when I came across the ReelanxVacum Sealing System. It was a reasonable price and I actually found vacuum bags that cost just a little more then freezer bags. The first thing we used it on was ribeye steaks. I worked great and I am now looking forward to buying meat and veggies in larger quanities and know that they will last much longer in the freezer buy using this little machine. We Love It!!!
