Thank you to Oliso for providing the vacuum sealer. The honest opinions are my own.
Years ago, when we were first married, I had a food vacuum sealer. I remember it being cumbersome to use and within a short time it disappeared from our kitchen. Awhile back, I purchased a hand held one from the grocery store, but it took forever to suck out all the air and it was expensive to replace the bags after every use. So it too, was soon discarded. There have been so many times since than that I wish I had a way to vacuum seal meat and other foods before I tossed them into the freezer.
The opportunity to test out the Oliso Pro Punch -&-Seal Vacuum Sealer couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.
When it arrived I decided to put it to an unconventional test.My husband, Randy, had shoulder surgery recently and we had been making diy ice packs by placing a combination of alcohol and water in freezer bags. He’s been using them to relieve his pain. Even though we had double bagged the ice packs, they still had a tendency to leak, and because we were unable to remove all the air it never froze in an easy to place position.
So tonight, I dumped one of these bags into the Oliso Pro and vacuumed out all the air.
The Oliso Pro is different than many vacuum sealers. The bags can be used several times over. The number of times a bag can be used varies on its size.Varying between 10 times up to 16 times.They are also up to 20% thicker than most vacuum seal bags. They are BPA free. A real plus, is the fact that they can be cleaned in a dishwasher on the low setting.
Sitting in my refrigerator right now taking up space that I need for my Thanksgiving turkey, are half used jars of black olives, pickles, and various types of salad dressing. Plus leftovers that are sitting in plastic containers. I can’t wait to dump those in bags and vacuum seal them all. Just think of the space I’m going to gain!.
