Are vacuum food sealers worth the money?

We may be biased, but if you’re wondering: ‘Are vacuum food sealers worth the money?’ The simple answer is yes!

At Pac Food we specialise in high-quality food packaging and storage solutions, and have a number of vacuum sealers which are sure to save you precious time – and money! – in the kitchen.

In this blog we explore a number of ways you can benefit from a vacuum sealer at home, and take a look at our two domestic machines that help you cut your food prep time and food waste down dramatically. 

What is vacuum sealing?

Vacuum sealing is the process where the oxygen is sucked out from inside a bag, in our case with food, helping extend the shelf life of the contents you’ve just sealed. 

It works with a range of food products including, berries, large cuts of meat and ground meat, salad, nuts, coffee, flour, sugar and rice.

And depending on what you’ve just vacuum sealed and how you store it after that – you can extend the shelf life by 5 times!

Why vacuum sealers are worth the money

Investing in a high-quality vacuum sealer from Pac Food, along with our premium food-grade sealing bags and rolls, can lead to plenty of household savings and help you to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Here’s just a handful of reasons why our vacuum sealers are so popular for home use and why you’ll love them too!

  1. Extend the shelf life of your food: If done correctly, vacuum sealing has the ability to keep food fresher for 3-5 times longer than storing normally.
  2. Make food prep easier: Prepare weekly menus (or even party menus) in advance by portioning out ingredients or meals into bags and sealing them. Many food products can be sealed uncooked, while some vegetables and meat products can be cooked prior to sealing. Learn more in our blog here.

    *Easy Breakfast Smoothie: Cut and store fresh fruit smoothie ingredients together so you can quickly blend them up when you’re on the go.
  3. Buy food in bulk and save money:  Cut your grocery costs down by purchasing some items in bulk and prepping your meals in advance.
  4. Reduce your household food waste: If you buy too much in your food shop, you might be able to seal the items and store for later.
  5. Save time in the kitchen: You’re not only reducing prep time when you make a week’s worth of family meals in one hit, but you’re also saving time cleaning! 
  6. Helps maintain a healthy diet: When you are able to plan ahead and make the most of your nutritious ingredients, it’s easier to maintain a healthy diet. Vacuum sealing also allows for effortless portion control.
