Keep your busy kitchen running smoothly with help from this easy-to-use Seal-a-Meal vacuum sealer. With its sleek, straightforward design, the compact appliance effectively removes air from inside a bag, then uses heat to create a reliable seal, which means stored food not only takes up less space in the fridge, freezer, or pantry, but it also stays fresh for longer compared to traditional storage methods (like zipper bags, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, and bulky containers).
Whether portioning food after buying in bulk, planning meals for the week ahead, or storing leftovers from dinner, the vacuum sealer helps preserve the taste and healthy nutrients of all your favorite foods. Use it to store fresh summer fruits and vegetables, cuts of meat, freshly caught fish, shredded or blocks of cheese, or dry goods like party crackers or homemade cookies. It can even be used to vacuum seal important documents, jewelry, silverware, and other household items.
A great introduction to vacuum sealing, this basic model makes vacuum sealing a breeze. Simply add the item to be stored to the bag, place the open end of the bag into the sealer's drip tray, and lower the lid. Press firmly on both sides of the lid until the "Hands-Free" indicator light illuminates--the machine takes it from there. After completing the vacuum sealing cycle, both the motor and the "Sealing" indicator light will turn off. A push of the "Open/Cancel" button cancels the process at any time or raises the lid when finished so you can remove the vacuum-sealed bag.
The Seal-a-Meal vacuum sealer accommodates 8-inch, 11-inch, quart-size, and gallon-size heat-seal bags and rolls. Seal-a-Meal includes 4-quart bags to get you started.
The Seal-a-Meal vacuum sealer features smooth surfaces that wipe clean effortlessly, and its removable drip tray catches overflow liquids and can go in the dishwasher (top rack) for less mess and quick, convenient cleanup.
