I agree the food saver is great the food does not get that icy covering you get when you just use plastic wrap ; or the left over containers. i just need to figure out how not to waste the bags when i make own. they have a great container you can use to marinade in and you don't have it spilling in the ref.
I have the original Food saver you see on the TV mine came with a DVD full of great ideas. just found some Turkey from thanksgiving and it did not have any frost on it and tasted great i made the Waldorf salad using turkey in place if the chicken
its wonderful no more lids popping off in the frezzer!

I decided to go with the Food Saver product line and am very happy with it; still learning what is best to seel right away and what should be frozen; its fun to use so my husband took a freshly baked loaf of bread and squished it into a tiny little block; he he oh well it a learning curve

I have one. I use it a lot when I buy meat (chicken breasts, pork loin) in bulk, and then pack it into "single serve" portions for the freezer.

I've also used it to freeze produce from the garden. It is best to prepare the vegetables, then freeze them in a single layer on a small cookie sheet, before using the food sealer on them. Grated cheese is also best frozen before sealing into a bag. (Sucking all the air out "mashes" loose things into a big blob.) My sealer came with some plastic containers to freeze soups etc but I've never used them (yet).

Is there something in particular you want to know that I might be able to help with?

Does anyone use a food sealer to help with cooking meals ahead of time and if so any tips for what are good recipes to use and what brand of sealer do you suggest.
