The FoodSaver VAC1200 offers new styling and powerful performance. Utilizing a powerful Piston Pump to produce a commercial-quality vacuum, the FoodSaver VAC1200 will provide an airtight seal to keep foods fresh 3-5 times longer. "Hands-Free" operation provides automatic vacuum packaging with a press on the lid. Also includes enhanced features like a 3-level sealing time adjustment switch, instant seal button and accessory port to allow vacuum packing in cans, jars bottles or canisters. The FoodSaver VAC1200 includes "How-To" video, assorted bag material, 1.5 qt canister.
When air is vacuumed out of food storage bags, jars, or bottles, the food inside stays fresher longer. The Vac 1200 not only seals foods in bags, but features an accessory hose to use with the 3 included accessories: 4-inch universal lid for jars or cans, 1-1/2-quart designer canister with lid, and bottle stopper for olive oil and wine. A choice of three sealing times, as well as instant seal for crushable berries and extended vacuum for thick, moist meats, provides exceptional control over the storage process.
After food is placed in either an 8- or 11-inch-wide bag, the edge is laid along the machines Teflon-coated sealing strip and the lid is closed. Both palms are pressed briefly on the lid, then released, which activates a green light. The machine then creates a wide, tight seal and the light turns off. FoodSavers patented reusable five-ply bags, made of UV-protective and FDA-approved materials, can be frozen (and prevent freezer burn on foods), microwaved, boiled, and washed in the dishwasher. The Vac 1200 kit includes three quart-size and two gallon-size bags, along with an 11-inch-by-10-foot roll that can be cut to customized lengths. Additional rolls, bags, and accessories are available separately. The included how-to video takes away all the guesswork, and an illustrated instruction strip inside the machine refreshes the memory on how to create a seal. Perishable foods must be refrigerated even when vacuum-sealed. Stylishly designed, the FoodSaver Vac 1200 measures 17-1/4 by 6 by 4-1/4 inches and is covered by a one-year warranty. --Ann Bieri
