Vacuum sealing keeps food fresh and flavorful three to five times longer than traditional storage methods by removing all air, the principal cause of food spoilage. FoodSaver's patented VacLoc bags, which work with this kit, are safe for boiling, microwaving, freezing, and refrigerating, so a sealed bag of frozen veggies can just be dropped into a pot of boiling water. The bags also can be washed and reused, are dishwasher safe, and are recyclable. The Vac 300 is easy to use. Put food in the bag, place the open end of the bag into the vacuum channel, close the lid, and press down. Meat and chicken are now safe for up to three years and fish up to two years in the freezer. Lettuce can stay crisp for weeks instead of a few days. You can even create your own frozen dinners (much yummier than store-bought!) by vacuum packaging leftovers right on the plate. --Doree Armstrong
