The Crenova Vacuum Sealing Machine is an interesting kitchen gadget for…you guessed it…vacuum sealing your food. As well as the main unit you get a starter set of bags in two sizes, large and medium, keep in mind you’ll need to purchase further bags for long term use.
It’s fairly simple to use, pop your food into a bag, put the open end of the bag into the sealing machine and close the top so it clips shut. Once closed you can select if it’s dry or moist food. Sealing dry food is really easy, just press the button and this automatically starts sucking the air out of the bag and then disorders heat seals it shut.
The moist option is a little trickier, you need to manually start the sealing process before the water is sucked out of the bag.
Once completed the bag is sealed up and the food looks the same as factory sealed food you’d get from a supermarket, making this great for unused ingredients (e.g. bacon).
Given the seal this isn’t going to replace clingfilm for items you want regular access to, but it’s good if you want to keep left overs or part pack items fresh and not stinking out the fridge.
