JML Vacuum Food Sealer
Advantages: Does exactly as it says it will
Disadvantages: The price is a bit extravagent
I wanted a better way to store my husband's sandwiches when he went to work. Foil is okay but it never seemed sealed enough and when I asked him if they were still fresh when it got around to his lunch he said sometimes they weren't. So off I trotted to find something which would cure this problem - it is bad enough to be at work all day long, it just makes the day even worse if your sandwich tastes stale!
After looking about on the high street, I had to result to Amazon.co.uk to find the vacuum food sealer and it cost £41.99. It arrived quickly as most things on Amazon do and I set about on learning how to use my new piece of kitchen machinery.
The JML Vacuum Food Sealer does exactly what it says on the box - seals food in vacuum tight bags. It can be used for meats, cheese etc for the fridge, sandwiches, you name it and you can most probably use the food sealer for it. It really extends the life of foods and keeps them fresh and yummy tasting. The machine basically sucks all the air out of the plastic bags (which come with it) and seals it up tight not allowing any air to get to the food and spoiling it.
I love new kitchen machinery and had alot of fun getting to grips with this though it didn't take me too long. The machine is white in colour and is made of a hardy type of plastic. You go off and get your sandwich (or whatever it is you want to seal up) and slip it into the plastic bag. You then get the open edges of the bag and slid it into the front of the food sealer and you wil be faced with the options of "seal only" or "vacuum seal". I tended not to go for the vacuum seal option very often as it destroyed the sandwich completely. It made it go flat and sort of crumble so I don't advise you use the vacuum seal option for sandwiches!
It only takes a few seconds to do and it isn't noisy at all.
All in all I think this is a great product though I do think it is slightly expensive for what it does. I have used it on a regular basis for my husband's lunches for work and things like pork chops, chicken etc. It is definately a handy appliance to have in the kitchen but it could do with a price decrease I think and the price is what lets it down slightly.
