Benefits of Domestic Food Vacuum Sealer
With a population that’s continuously increasing and food resources becoming strained, we must reduce the wastage of food. One aspect of preventing wastage is boosting the shelf life of certain foods. Storing perishable items in a freezer is the ideal method of preserving food and its nutrients for future use.
Using a domestic grade vacuum sealer to store ingredients and food items naturally extend its shelf life by approximately three to five times. Consequently, you can use those products for longer. If you freeze food before its sell-by-date, it could last 12 months or more without losing quality and flavour. If you love leftovers, you can save them in a bag with a vacuum sealer and place it in the freezer for you to eat later. Always ensure that you label the bags according to its contents and the date you stored it away.
Filling a bag with your ingredients and sealing them with a domestic food vacuum machine prevents cross-contamination and dehydration. Since there’s no oxygen entering the bag, there’s no chance for bacteria and mould to grow. Additionally, your food remains fresh without discolouration and changes in texture. Using vacuum sealed bags prevents your food from getting freezer burn as a result of water seeping into your food without room to evaporate.
Food that you can vacuum seal allows you to store it away methodically. You can quickly identify the items you require when preparing your daily meals. You will have the freedom to shop in bulk and acquire items that are available in certain seasons, knowing that the vacuum-sealed bags will keep them fresh for a while.
Additionally, if you prefer, you can batch cook your meals, store them in the bags and put them into the freezer to reheat when you’re ready for dinner to save you time and money.
Tips for Getting More Value Out of a Household Food Vacuum Sealer
After you’ve acquired your domestic vacuum sealer, you must be aware of the processes to adopt that ensures you get the maximum return on your investment. While you will enjoy all the benefits associated with storing food and ingredients, you must take the necessary steps to maintain the machine to continue using it effectively.
Bear in mind that when you use the vacuum sealer, you are usually dealing with food items. For this reason, you must clean the machine immediately to prevent bacteria, dust, and pests from finding a home inside the sealer. Ideally, you should clean the machine after every use.
Cleaning your vacuum sealer is the first step to maintaining its efficient operation. If you leave soap residue after you clean, it could attract dirt and dust to the machine, which is a health risk.
It’s advisable to wipe the device down twice to ensure that you don’t leave soap residue. Be sure that it is completely dry before storing it in a safe area, away from the elements. Avoid using harsh detergents in the sealer; this includes those that you extensively use to clean kitchen tops. They contain harmful chemicals which become a hazard. Instead, use a mild soap with a damp cloth. It’s imperative that you don’t use a wet cloth that is dripping with water as you could damage the machine’s electrical components.
