Buy in bulk, prepare meals in advance and save leftovers from spoiling by keeping air and moisture out, locking in freshness and preventing freezer burn. The Tilia Vac FoodSaver seals food in bags and canisters! This quick and convenient vacuum sealer comes with a unique accessory hose that allows you to package food in a special 3/4-qt. canister. FoodSaver's reusable VacLoc bags can go right from the freezer to the stovetop or microwave. Includes one 3/4-qt. canister with accessory hose, five 1-qt. bags, five 1-gal. bags, plus one 22'x 8" roll and one 18' x 11" roll for creating custom bags. Vac and accessory hose are compatible with a variety of FoodSaver canisters and VacLoc rolls and bags (sold separately). Made in USA with some imported parts. 4Hx18Wx7-1/2D".
Ingenious and simple to operate, Tilia's FoodSaver system seals food inside containers after vacuuming out the air--and the oxygen that causes foods to spoil. That means food stays fresh longer than when it's merely refrigerated or frozen. Meat, for example, remains good in the freezer for about six months; frozen inside a vacuum package, it remains good for two to three years--and it doesn't suffer freezer burn, either. Fish, coffee, cheese, crackers, sugar, nuts, oils, and wine all stay fresh three to five times longer when stored in a vacuum, whether they're frozen, refrigerated, or at room temperature. Also, silverware and other metal items won't tarnish when stored in a vacuum-sealed bag.
Like all FoodSaver machines, this one vacuums air from containers and seals bags with a simple one-touch operation. The machine measures 15 by 5-1/2 by 3-1/2 inches, weighs 5 pounds, has a cord-storage compartment, and cleans easily with a damp, soapy cloth. It carries a one-year warranty against defects. An instruction booklet and video accompany the machine.
The basic FoodSaver container is Tilia's three-layer VacLoc bag: it has two plastic layers and an outer nylon layer to keep moist foods (such as meat loaf or chocolate cake) moist, dry foods (such as brown sugar or flour) dry, and all foods from leaking odor. Included in this kit is one 11- by 10-inch roll for bagging, three quart size bags, and two gallon bags. For cooking, the bags can go directly into a microwave oven or boiling water. They're resealable, reusable, and dishwasher-safe. --Fred Brack
