The Latest Kitchen Acquisition

So every since I got the Sous Vide stick I’ve been using ziplock bags – but I could never get all the air out.

So I was on Amazon and saw a deal for $49.95 where you’d get a Hamilton Beach vacuum sealer with two rolls of bag material. So I ordered it, and it was delivered Saturday.

Now when we went shopping today I got one whole chicken parted up, a pre-seasoned pork loin, and a couple of center cut filet mignon steaks. Seared the chicken, then dusted with salt/sugar/pepper. The pork had it’s own seasoning, and the steaks got Montreal Steak seasoning. All in air tight bags. Love the thing. Someone even threatened to vacuum seal the cat.

It’s a manual model – you have to hold the bar down while it evacuates and then seals the bags. But easy to use.
