This Food Vacuum Sealer is designed to keep food fresher and healthier for longer. By storing food in oxygen-free packaging you can inhibit bacteria, mold and yeast growth. The result is ingredients that are fresh, tasty and healthy for longer! Vacuum sealing can help to protect against nasty freezer burn as well!
With 10 vacuum bags included free you'll have plenty to make a start on reducing your household food spoilage and space usage.
We've designed this Vacuum Sealer to be simple to use. Simply open, place your bag in the seal and with one touch you'll be on your way to fresh and healthy refrigerated, dry and frozen foods!
You can also use the heat seal feature to cut your bags to the desired size and seal them to lock in the goodness.
We've even got more bags available in handy 6m rolls so that you have enough to last.
Vacuum packaging extends the life of foods by removing most of the air from sealed containers and prevents fresh air escaping into the sealed containers, thereby reducing oxidation. Vacuum packaging helps preserve flavour and overall quality. It also helps inhibit the growth of aerobic microorganisms, which can lead to the problems noted below under certain conditions:
Mold - Mold cannot grow in a low oxygen environment; therefore vacuum packaging can virtually eliminate it.
Yeast - Results in fermentation, which can be identified by smell and taste. Yeast needs water, sugar and a moderate temperature to grow. It can also survive with or without air. Slowing the growth of yeast requires refrigeration, while freezing stops it completely.
Bacteria - Results in an unpleasant odour, discoloration and/or soft or slimy texture. Under the right conditions, clostridium botulinum (the organism that causes Botulism) can grow without air and cannot be detected by smell or taste. Although it is extremely rare, it can be very dangerous.
As with any other storage container, it is important to inspect food for spoilage prior to consuming. To preserve foods safely, it is important to maintain low temperatures. You can significantly reduce the growth of microorganisms at temperatures of 4'C or below. Freezing at -17'C does not kill microorganisms, but stops them from growing. For long-term storage, always freeze perishable foods that have been vacuum packaged.Read more
