Here are some vacuum sealer deals you can grab as of Oct. 16, before your holiday leftover situation gets out of hand:
Going to the grocery store less often than normal means that food has to last longer than normal, too. If you find that the chicken you bought to “cook in a few days” is always spoiling before you get around to it, a vacuum sealer can solve all your food waste problems. You can keep meat, leftovers, and more in the freezer until you’re ready to use them, and all that food will stay fresh (unlike if you just put it in a plastic zipper bag). You can also use it to cook sous vide, so if you’ve been itching for a perfectly cooked sous vide steak, a vacuum sealer can help with that, too.
From storing holiday leftovers to prepping portions for weeknight meals, a vacuum sealer will save money, food waste, and time. Check out these deals on vacuum sealer systems on Amazon, as of Oct. 16.
The small, compact design of this Foodsaver system is one of its best features (it was our top space-saving pick in our best vacuum sealers roundup). It won’t take up much space in your kitchen cabinet, and it’ll save space in your freezer. Since it’s not automatic, the user can control the amount of plastic that is used, saving money on refills. Foodsaver boasts that food sealed with this system can last up to three years in the freezer and still taste fresh, so even really old frozen leftovers will taste as good as the day you cooked them.
Reviews say that this vacuum sealer by Mueller is whisper-quiet and can fit in small spaces. The two sealing options allow you to choose between wet and dry (think simmered dishes versus a solid piece of raw chicken) so you’ll always get a custom seal based on the dish. This feature ensures that all types of food will stay fresher for way longer. The automatic sealer cuts the plastic roll for you — just plug it in and select your settings.
This vacuum sealer by Entrige proves that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get all the features you need. With a separated design that allows you to remove the upper lid, cleaning is easy and convenient. It also has a wet and dry sealing mode, and automatic cutting, so you won’t have to hold down the top to get a tight seal.
