Save time, money and hassle with the Fresh Sealer. Just close the transparent lid, this 12 Liter container automatically sucks out the air to protect breads, pastries, chips, crackers, cereals and more, keeping them fresh longer. Smart vacuum sensor stops the pump when the perfect pressure is achieved and maintains that same pressure at all time. It is also a quick food marinator. Since Fresh Sealer quickly pumps air out, allowing foods' pores and fibers to stretch and expand while marinade gets pulled deeper into the core and better than overnight soak marination. You can marinate meats/foods in minutes instead of hours under vacuum stage. Other vacuum food sealers on the market require to purchase special bags or keep pumping the air out manually. If you are looking for a better and touchless way to store foods longer and marinate foods faster, the Fresh Sealer is your solution. Removable dishwasher safe tray for easy cleaning. Powered by AC adaptor (included) or 4 D sized batteries (not included).

UPDATE: Update sooner than I thought: the machine works well. However, a brief word about bananas.
If you place a green banana inside the iTouchless, vacuum seal, then let it be for a week, at the end of the week the banana will still be green (or slightly yellowing). However, open the banana and it will be well-ripen. The banana simply ripens as if it were out on the counter for the week. All you do is keep the skin looking newish. The 'green' banana I had this morning had the inside of an almost blackened banana: very mushy. It is obvious that the 'meat' of a banana cares nothing for our feeble attempts to prolong its life.
The iTouchless does work well with bread and apples, to date. Again, very easy to use. I still recommend, just do not purchase for the sole purpose of keeping bananas fresh longer.
UPDATE FEBRUARY 15, 2008: I agree with the 'one star' reviewer: the unit does generate some heat. Not enough to melt chocolate or such, but noticeable. I would not try to keep items like cherries, grapes, etc., inside this iTouchless. When I tried items that have a high moisture content there would soon be moisture inside the bubble top, and leads to spoilage.
After a year of usage I would downgrade my recommendation to 3 stars. It is good within its narrow range, but the heat it generates does, as the one-star reviewer noted, actually speed up molding in some fruits. Pity.
I decided to add the review after I bought this product despite the mixed reviews, and wanted to support what has become a staple appliance in our kitchen.
Below I will describe what we use it for and the results it produces compared to the alternatives based on my testing.
Fresh baked bread (with no preservatives): Bread stays soft for about 2 weeks, but losing its optimum freshness after about 4 days. Our alternative was either aluminum foil wrapping or zip-lock bags. I also tried putting those things in the refrigerator, but something about the cold makes the bread lose its softness. In those cases I could get 1-2 days of freshness and it would be stale by 1 week.
Store bought bagels: Actually doesn't seem to do much to preserve freshness vs sealing them in a ziplock bag. But it is easier.
Store bought cinnamon-raisin bread (those little loaves in the red bag): Lasts similar length before spoiling as putting in the fridge, but keeps the chewy softness that makes it so tasty for almost 2 weeks.
Various baked desserts (unfrosted cakes, etc): For these I recommend keeping them in the device for the first few days to get that optimum freshness, but moving them to the refrigerator thereafter because (according to my theory) they seem to go bad more quickly because of their extra sugar and butter.
We have not tried vegetables or such.
We live in California where the air is dry and the average temperature is 70 degrees F. I think atmospheric conditions explain why some people find this doesn't work. If you live in a more hot/humid place I am guessing the air contains more things to grow in this unrefrigerated vacuum environment.
