Whenever I see vacuum sealers on sale, I bring them up, since they’re a big part of the sous vide cooking experience, and a great way to save money with large Costco-style purchases that can be sealed up and frozen for later use. And even if you’re not going to cook with a sous vide cooker, it’s also the best way to defrost food without messing it up (see, for example: microwave); if you have something frozen in a pouch, just plop it in the water with your sous vide cooker set to room temperature, and it’ll only take 20-30 minutes to defrost, rather than hours just sitting on the counter. But it all starts with a good vacuum sealer. This one is on sale today for just $56!
