I’ve recently had the chance to review the FoodSaver V2040 and boy do I ever love it. I have wanted one of these since the moment I seen a commercial for it many years ago. Doing the type of work my Dad does, he uses this same machine and I’ve tasted his homemade smoked salmon a few months after it had been vacuum sealed and thrown in the freezer and let me tell ya, it tasted just as fresh as the day he sealed it. I was very impressed and knew this was the answer to saving money by eliminating food waste.
Prior to using the FoodSaver V2040 we would just double up on the freezer bags which Still left the food covered in frost. I absolutely love how it keeps our food so much more fresh and it also saves on the space in our freezer. No more bulky containers and freezer burn for us!! The FoodSaver itself is small enough to neatly store away for the next time you need it or leave it on the counter for easy access. It’s very simple to use, simply cut the size off the roll that you will need for your product to be sealed + 3 inches, seal one end, then vacuum it and your done! AND it only weighs 7.95 lbs. I also love that it has a convenient place to store the plug/cord.
The first time I used it was with a minute steak and I didn’t find it sucked much of the air out so I cut it just below the seam (on the END, never on the Side) and tried again. Only this time I sort of pushed down on the meat as it was sucking the air out and “helped” push some wrinkles out. I find that method worked a lot better. Once I started vacuum sealing, I couldn’t stop. I literally almost used the whole roll the first time I was so excited about it.
Some more info about the FoodSaver:
