Few people actually do the math but if you were to look at all the food you throw away in just one month you would realize that you are actually throwing away enough food to feed a 2nd family, or to look at it from another perspective, you are throwing the way 3rd of your grocery money. What is actually stranger is that many people do not even realize just how much money they could save by using a vacuum sealer. Its biggest advantage is the fact that it saves your raw foods from getting freezer burn. In case you are wondering what that means, freezer burn refers to the fact that vegetables then to get soggy and moist if they had been frozen. By vacuum sealing them you can enjoy fresh food even in the middle of winter.
Being able to store vegetables in the freezer over long periods of time is just one of the benefits of using vacuum sealers. They are also great because they allow you to store your cooked meals, or separate them in portions and then freeze them. You can even store vacuum sealed foods in the fridge for longer periods of time than you would normal foods. That is because by removing the air you are preventing bacteria from spoiling your food. The freezer does the same thing but by also removing all the air that surrounds the food you are adding another layer of protection. The fact that you are removing the air from around the food has another final implication in that it keeps your food from spoiling during the long trips so your sandwiches or burgers or even fruits will taste fresher and better after hours spent in a hot car if they have been vacuum sealed when they were still fresh.
