Vacuum marinator & injector

Discussion in 'Slicers, Grinders, Tools, Equipment' started by hungryjohn, Jun 6, 2009.

  1. Just after reading Shooter Rick's fine injector review, I got an e-mail touting "the world's first instant vacuum marinator and flavor injector."

    Anyone tried it, heard anything about it?

    My guess is it belongs in the gimmick category.

    I have a MariVac that works pretty well but it is a different concept than this.

    Don't look good to me. Not to mention it's to small, one little piece at a time. My vote would be a big NO!!!!!!!!![​IMG]

    I'd have to concur...looks a little gimmicky to me. These things never work like they make it look on TV. And, as others said, it would be tough to cram a butt in there.

    I would have to get on the boat with meatball and one shot a really big NO. It looks like you mite fit a half a hot dog in there. I don't know about you things I cook and smoke are much larger than that thing would hold.

    Have a marivac as well and I love it for jerky - so I guess the jury is still out on this injectory thingy until someone can prove us all wrong!

    But But But. It is Chef Tony certified[​IMG][​IMG]:pD T_Armataz_01_27:. Most of these products are based on stuff that has been around a while like a vac sealer in this case, hire a pitch man, and sell some junk to people who believe him. Anyone want to buy a Rotato potato peeler.

    The process and equipment are nothing new.

    Commercial units use stainless steel containers and a tumbler (much like a rock polishing tumbler). Mostly used in local shops.

    The industrial units use huge SS containers. Mostly used in making jerky.
