Best vacuum packer - Page 2

I've learned a trick where when you have fluids put a paper towel, folded up to be a thin but thick strip, right before where it seals and the paper towel soaks up all the juices. I do this when I have marinade in my bag and want to seal it with the marinade to help the marinade infusion.

We actually use a brush and hand wash them with soap and water. We then hang them over something to dry
I have done this for 15 years and it has worked very well - At one time Foodsaver made this recommendation --long long time ago

I have a couple of the foodsaver brand sealers and I like them and use them quite a bit. I found that if I'm sealing up something with lots of moisture like fish I put them into the freezer in a pan for a bit till they get almost frozen then take them out and seal them in bags and that keeps the juices from getting sucked into the sealer

It maybe cheap but my Reynolds Handi-vac does a great job. The bags are reuseable and the thing is cordless. Just had a steak Tuesday night that I had forgotten about in the freezer (at least 6 months old) and it was perfect.
I think I paid $15 for it - bags are a bit high but I found some on sale and stocked up - Had the unit for almost a year now and its still working perfectly.

Just bought a FoodSaver during Amazon Prime Day. $71.00. Used it last night for the first time. Works like a charm!
