With the price of food now a days it's almost a must. Also, for me it's only me and the old lady and we're both old. I like to smoke stuff but most good stuff to smoke is like lbs of meat. We can't eat that much before it goes bad. I tend to make 3 times as much as I need and freeze 2/3rds

My vacuum sealers are probably one of the most used tools in my kitchen. I mostly use them commercially but like you, I also use them to save/freeze leftover food. They are also good when applying overnight rubs and also when cooking sous vide.

Among the main advantages of vac packing food for the frezer

  • It reduces the air (oxygen) around the food and so reduces the rate of spoilage
  • It prevents the loss of water through evapouration (especially when in the freezer) and prevents freezer burn
  • It allows you to pack and freeze liquids (soups, sauces, marinades etc.) flat in bags which will then stack more efficiently in the freezer
  • Split up large bulk packs of food (e.g. chicken pieces, sausages etc.) into portion size quanties before freezing

If you can stretch to a chamber vacuum sealer then that is great however there are some really good side-suck ones available now for around £100

I was eyeing up one of the ink bird vacuum sealers a while back, only a basic one but seems like a good place to start

Yeah I got an inexpensive inkbird and it works fine
