Product Description

Amazon.com Product Description

A nice addition to any busy kitchen, this handy marinating container makes it possible to marinade food in a matter of minutes--instead of hours. Marinating helps retain natural juices, enhances flavors, and helps deliver better results when grilling, baking, or pan searing. To use, simply place food inside, in either a single layer or stacked, pour a marinade over the food, close the lid, and pump out the air to create a vacuum. Pumping out the air causes the pores of meat to open and the juices to get pulled in, which not only creates an even marinade, but also tenderizes the food. The unit offers a 2-1/2-quart capacity, and it works great for everything from meat or fish to tofu and vegetables. It can also be used as a food-storage container. Made of durable polycarbonate, the marinating tool measures approximately 10 by 10 by 4 inches and cleans up easily by hand or in the dishwasher (top rack only).

Product Description

This Vacuum Marinater performs full marination in 10 minutes and tenderizes the meat. Larger pump extracts air faster.

He claims he uses it all the time and loves it.
Morgen F. Benner
I think that when you pull "too strong" a vacuum and then put the INSTANT MARINATER into the REFRIGERATOR, the container IMPLODES.
Sandra
This is great for marinating meat for the grill.

I had a much older marinator but it finally broke after many years, so I ordered this one. The pump has greatly improved; so much easier. But the bowl has a very stupid design. The bottom of the bowl is not level...it's "humped" whereby the middle section is raised and the area near the edges (where the bottom of the bowl meets the sides) are much lower. I don't get the reasoning behind this! So, part of the meat (the portion that's against the edge) is in the marinade, but the remaining portion of the meat (the part that's not shoved against the edge) doesn't touch the marinade unless you pour a HUGE amount of marinade in the bowl to fill up the entire bottom. Dumb design. I wish I knew this feature before I bought it, but the picture doesn't reveal this.

This new larger and stronger model works even better than the discontinued one. The larger size will hold roasts and the larger pump pulls the air out faster. The marinater works great: The flavors of the marinade taste fresher and things like lemon zest really sing. It really speeds up the marinating and tenderizing process.

I found the lid hard to remove because the suction was so strong, but pulling out the whole stopper helps it come right off. The container and lid are very strong and durable, so the problems of the older model have been eliminated. This Instant Marinater is a great timesaver in the home and for the outdoor BBQ.

The 3 main complaints I've noticed on this product are that, there are no instructions telling how much air to pump out, that you can't get the cover off easily, and the bottom of the container is rounded inwards. I want to mention that there are indeed instructions on the box holding the pump (10 pumps max for a full container, 25 max for 1/2 full.) To get the cover off, just nudge the rubber thing on top to the side indicated by the triangles that will let air in. As for the solution to the bottom of the container, the only things I can think of are that maybe it's their attempt to get the marinade under your food (though I would think ridges on a flat bottom would do a better job,) or maybe it's because it's a stronger shape so it doesn't implode as easily.) Anyway, I've found this product works as advertised, and although it's supposed to be "instant", I recommend keeping food in it for a few hours to let the acids in the marinade to do its job.

I had to replace our old VacuVin Instant Marinater because it cracked under the pressure! This new model is bigger and stronger and it is easier to tell when I've sucked out enough air.

Great product. Strong and robust, I have had meat marinating for several days and the vacuum remains strong. Hasn't improved my cooking any, but the marinade part works great.

This past summer was when I finally started getting into grilling. I had been marinating my meats in either a Tupperware or plastic bag. Then, I read about this item, so I purchased it. It seems to work just fine. I'ved used it more than 30 times. In each case I'd add the marinade to the meat, and place in the refrigerator while I go to work. I haven't had any problems with implosion, and it's easy to tell when there's enough vacuum - it get VERY hard to pump. It's well made out of thick plastic [polycarbonate?] and has plenty of room inside. Now if only I was better at choosing tasty marinades, I'd be all set.

I WAS SKEPTICAL ABOUT THIS AND WHEN I FOUND IT DIRT CHEAP I WENT FOR IT AND HAVE NO REGRETS. THIS IS HOW IT WORKS FOR YOU PEOPLE THAT GAVE IT BAD REVIEWS 1. THE BOTTOM OF THE PUMP BOX STATES 10 PUMPS MAX FOR FULL CONTAINER AND 25 MAX. PUMPS FOR 1/2 FULL CONTAINER 2. WHEN YOU REMOVE THE LID YOU NEED TO PUT THE PUMP BACK ON AND GIVE IT A TINY TURN TO RELEASE ANY AIR LEFT INSIDE AND THEN THE LID COMES RIGHT OFF. IF YOU FOLLOW THESE RULES I AM 100% CONVINCED YOU WILL LOVE THIS PRODUCT,I DO AGREE THEY NEED INSTRUCTIONS,BUT THAT IS THE ONLY BAD THING I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT.

I purchased this item approx 1-year ago and now it is not working. I wrote the company that makes and never got a response. Based on my experience with this product and the company that makes it I would give them a F rating.
