We’ve all experienced it.
And we’ve probably all wasted food because of it.
Whether you buy meat in bulk, make your own freezer meals ahead of time to make dinner time easier, make your own bread, need an alternative to canning, or just like to freeze stuff, freezer burn is the enemy. It can take a $20 steak and turn it into a hockey puck. It literally destroys the taste and texture of your food.
So you have 2 options.
Stop freezing food or change the way you freeze it.
For me, with our busy lifestyle, changing the way we freeze food makes so much more sense.
And the Ziploc® Brand V201 Vacuum Sealer System has made freezer burn a thing of the past in my house!
I have to admit that I was rather skeptical about actually needing one of these. My husband has been after me for years to get one and I never really saw the value. It took one use of the Ziploc® Brand V201 Vacuum Sealer System and I am hooked. There are so many great uses for this machine! I make my own bread and usually make it in bulk and freeze it. The loaves always end up with ice crystals all over them. Also, this summer we had a lot of vegetables in our garden. I don’t do canning (yet) and so I was pretty much stuck giving the extra veggies away. Sure, friends and family enjoyed it, but for us it means we grew food we couldn’t use and then during the winter months we end up buying vegetables. With the Ziploc® Brand V201 Vacuum Sealer System, I can freeze the extra veggies for use all winter!
But there really is no limit to what you can freeze with this machine. Meat, cheese, even soup! To seal liquids you simply freeze them first, then transfer them to a sealer bag.
The Ziploc® Brand V201 Vacuum Sealer System is much easier to use than I expected. In short, you simply put the food in a Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer bag, set the open end on the unit, close the lid until latched and press the button. The machine does the rest removing all of the air from the bag and sealing the end.
Like magic. And now I can put this in the freezer without fear of freezer burn!

A word of advice though. Not that I would know this from experience or anything, it’s just common sense, but I thought I’d share it anyway.
Freeze your bread overnight before attempting to vacuum seal it.
Again, this isn’t from experience or anything…
Go ahead, you can laugh. I did.
Obviously there will be some learning the best techniques for each different type of food, but overall this is the easiest and fastest way to protect your frozen food from freezer burn so you don’t ruin it.
And in case you are concerned about the plastic, the bags for the Ziploc® Brand V201 Vacuum Sealer System are BPA-free!
The Ziploc® Brand V201 Vacuum Sealer System would actually make a great gift! If you know someone who is always looking for ways to make their work in the kitchen easier, you can get a coupon for $5 off ANY Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System.
