FoodSaver FreshSaver Handheld Vacuum Sealer Patterns with 20 Bags â€” QVC.com
just bought this and solved my addiction to sealing foods (especially sliced onions) for our RV fridge.
I can NOT live without my FoodSaver here at home. I buy lots of things in bulk and divide them up, seal them and freeze 'em.
BUT the full size sealer is not good for the RV. QVC has this hand held one on special today *with* easy pay. LOVE the size of this and I got it in my accent color....RED!
I do a lot of food prep during the week before we leave for a trip and this last time I put thin sliced onions in a Ziploc bag and put them in the RV fridge. Went out to the RV the next day, opened the fridge and YUK! Took it back inside the house and put the whole bag into seal-a-meal bag....no more onion stink in the RV fridge! But once I opened the seal-a-meal bag and used some of the onion I had to throw away the rest.
We take a lot of sliced ham (I buy Petit Jean Mt. hams and have them sliced at the meat market) which I have stored/frozen in sealed bags. But then once you open it while camping.....
We do a lot of grilling when we camp....I pre make and pre season the hamburger patties, dry-rub steaks, etc. Vacuum packing these meats draws the seasoning down into the meat.
And cheese! Can't live without my cheese!
Resealing left over hot dogs! Oh dear, QVC is now running a special on super-duper Kansas City Steak hot dogs!
Runs on batteries or 110V.
I have SO been waiting for QVC to feature this useful gadget for the RV!
when he goes golfing on Sunday that I'll be gettin' my QVC fix!)
