Make and pack your own dressing with the FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System

I was recently sent the FoodSaver® V4865 2-In-1 Vacuum Sealing System to play around with and review.  I have always wanted a vacuum system, but never really jumped on it. I pictured it sitting in my house and not getting much use. But after using the FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System I knew I was wrong! I was actually super excited and found myself looking through my kitchen to see what I could seal and preserve!


 The FoodSaver ®  Vacuum looks very nice with its stainless steel design. I think it is beautiful enough to have on your counter.

I read the directions that were attached under the lid of the FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System, watched some YouTube videos, and after a couple minutes of playing around with the sealing system I was almost a pro!

As I was searching my kitchen for things I could seal I opened my fridge and saw pineapple in regular freezer bags and bananas with plastic wrap. Both had freezer burn.

I regularly use frozen bananas and pineapple in my smoothies. The best natural sugars! I them both with the FoodSaver® Sealing System. It was a very satisfying feeling knowing that the food I was sealing would not only last longer and taste better- but would take up less space and indirectly make me more organized! The FoodSaver® Bags are also BPA free!

The one thing I always tell my clients is to make their own salad dressing. It is more cost effective, tastes better, and is a great way to avoid all of the chemicals and preservatives in store bought dressings.

I made my own dressing, froze it in ice cube trays, popped them out and sealed them using the FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System! Now the dressings are already portioned sized off, and easy to take with me on the days I bring a salad to eat between classes! SO EASY! You can make a huge batch and store it in the fridge. I am super excited about this. Total time saver.


Do you have a FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System? How do you use it? 

I am excited to explore more vacuum sealing options!!
