    Ok guys, i'm new to this and have been doing some reading and searching archives. Can you vacuum seal mylar bags and put an absorber in them? Or are mylar bags with an absorber good enough? And also, how do you seal the mylar bags? Never used them obviously but my wife and I are just...

    I just about killed my vacuum sealer because I sucked up a a whole bunch of baking powder while trying to vacuum a small mylar bag. Sure, I knew it MIGHT happen, but thinking that I'm so much better than that, I doubted it would happen to me. News Flash. I'm not that good. It is a good thing...

Costco was next and I purchased 50 more pounds of rice, 20 pounds of Quaker Oats, two cases of chicken broth, a few cases of crushed tomatoes and various...

    Does anyone have any experience with vacuum sealers - the FoodSaver brand in particular? My wife and I were planning on getting one but after doing some reading on the internet I am a little hesitant. The overwhelming majority of posts from consumers on product review web sites were...

    OK...I have 50 lbs of farina. I want to store it in smaller portions. I hear different methods of storing dry food. Been looking into a foodsaver but understand that they don't get all the moisture and gas out. I also have heard that you shouldn't use absorbers and vacumm sealers together...

    I have decided to get a dehydrator and vacuum sealer and was wondering what you all use and how you like it? Would you get something different instead? how have your results been? Thanks for your help!

    I just recently purchased and am very happy with the way it works and for the amount I paid it is worth it. We have had it for a couple of weeks and so far no complaints. Its small and lightweight.
