UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED AND WINNER HAS BEEN CHOSEN
Being a frugal mom means more than just clipping coupons. It means finding ways to save in every area of our lives. Cutting down on food spoilage is one example. With a FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer, food stays fresh up to 5 times longer because it removes the air that damages your food and keeps it out! Recently I was given a Foodsaver Master Chef Kit to try in my home. It was perfect timing since we were in the midst of our monthly meal prepping weekends, so I was able to take it for a spin with a variety of foods. Here’s my evaluation:
- Gentle Seal Button – The Master Chef Unit comes with a Gentle Seal Button which was great for sealing my breads, rolls and muffins. It created a slow, gradual suction which preserved the integrity of my baked goods. No crumbling whatsoever. Two thumbs up.
- Container Feature – This unit also comes with a hose that attaches to FoodSaver containers to remove the air. I didn’t use this feature, but I think it’s a nice extra to have.
- Space Saver – This unit is tall and compact, so it uses very little counter space. I’m not a person who loves to have things left out on the counter, but this one is staying put so I can use it through the week whenever needed.
- Automatic Sensor – The unit senses when you insert a bag and automatically starts the sealing process. Super easy.
- Use Premade Bags or Cut Your Own – Yes! I love that I can create my own bags of any size so there is less waste! This unit comes with a 10 foot roll of Heat Seal so it will last quite a while.
If you’re still on the fence about whether this would be a good money saving investment, then head over to the Foodsaver Facebook page to use the Super $aver Calculator for an estimate of how much you can save annually.
