Looking for recommendations on vacuum sealers
I want to get my adult daughter a vacuum sealer for Xmas. She's quite a cook and often makes large quantities that would keep better if they were vacuum sealed and frozen. I looked on Amazon and read the reviews for the Rival brand Seal-a-Meal units, the Tilia FoodSaver, and a few others. The reviews were mixed. Some people loved their units, but a lot seemed to say: good until it quit working after a few months. I noticed one other one that is hand-operated and doesn't require special bags: it's called PumpNSeal, and it's not too expensive. Simple may be better. Does anyone have any experience with any of these devices, or could you make a recommendation about a brand/model that has given good service over a long time?
