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.

I have been using the Vacu Vin for about two years. It has changed my whole approach to marinating. I can marinate a meat in less than an hour rather than a half day or more. Here's what works for me. It's not how long you leave the meat under vacuum; rather, it's how many times you cycle the vacuum. I typically do two or more cycles of about five to ten minutes. Each cycle draws more of the marinade into the meat. It is not necessary to leave the meat under vacuum for extended periods of time. Also, you don't have to completely immerse the meat; just flip the meat between cycles.

I have also found that using a multiblade meat tenderizing device, such as the Jaccard meat tenderizer, in concert with the Vacu Vin works well. Not only does the tenderizer break down the fiber of the meat, but it also promotes the infusion of the marinade into the meat.

In other reviews some have not liked the convex bottom over a flat bottom. In the end, it's a matter of engineering physics; If it was flat it would tend to bow under a vacuum and need to be thicker to not bow. The engineering of the bottom is sound.

I like the Vacu Vin well enough to give it to my sons-in-law and others as a gift. When I go to their homes I want delicious well marinated meat.

To all, have a great Christmas. From an engineer who loves cooking gadgets, and loves to cook.

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.

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.

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.

I was happy with this dish as it seemed to help marinate and preserve raw meats and fish. then after a few dozen uses the top's side lip cracked while gradually pumping it sealed and now the dish is worthless. I never cooked or froze or did anything to stress out the plastic, and the rubber seal was soft and in place - the plastic used here simply failed to hold up. If this was an "as seen on TV" product for $9.95 I would not mind it - but for $30, I'll go back to using ziploc vacuum bags since for $30 you can buy 40 quart bags and a hand pump - that's more usefulness than I got out of this Vacu Vin junk.

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.
