My husband wanted a vacuum sealer forever. I fought him. I didn’t want one more thing in my kitchen and I hate to spend money. Freezer bags worked fine, right?

Have you ever thrown out food because it got freezer burnt? My hand is raised. I have the best intentions of rotating my food, keeping records up to date and using it before it can go bad, but guess what, freezer burn happens.

Two Christmas’s ago, my husband and I each bought the other one a vacuum sealer for Christmas. You could say we know each other pretty well. We kept the largest one and returned the other.

I had to admit it, he was right. The vacuum sealer has been amazing. Plus, it’s kind of fun to use. I’ve sealed fruit, vegetables, and over 40 pounds of chicken in one night. Whew.

It keeps food fresher much longer and it makes it easier to stack in the freezer. Plus!

Wanna know how long certain foods are good once frozen? This is an awesome chart from Freezerelabels.net
