You’ve invested in a vacuum packer for your home and you want to get value for money from your purchase. You know the more you use it, the more cost effective it will be. You’re already using it to seal fresh food so it will last longer, but how do you get the most out of it?
There are a number of ways your new appliance can save you money, here are just three of them.
Dried food products
You bought your machine to seal the food you put in the refrigerator and freezer, and it’s great, but did you know you can use it on dried food as well?
If you buy a large packet of crisps, biscuits or crackers and you want to prevent them going off, sealing them will help retain their freshness and will stop them going soggy. You can do this with any dried foods such as breakfast cereal or popcorn.
Bulk buying food
Buying meat and vegetables when they’re on offer or in large quantities can save you a fortune. The only downside is you have to eat it all before it goes off. Sealing the food in individual portions and putting them in the freezer will keep it for longer, meaning the only limit to buying in bulk is the space you have in your freezer.
Using a jar attachment
If your new appliance has a jar attachment, or you can buy one, use it as often as you can. It’s great for sealing a range of foods you can’t seal in a bag. Soft fruits or liquid based meals such as soup or casseroles are much easier to seal in a jar.
There are so many ways your new vacuum packer can save money. Make the most of it and it can serve you well for many years to come.
