Long-time, no chat right my friends? I am back at it sharing with you my favourite appliance reviews for your home. Life has been chaotic since the end of summer as we moved from Toronto back to Winnipeg and we are settling into our new home! With that comes lots of things to consider as a homeowner and we have to budget more than ever. I have been using the Hamilton Beach Nutri Fresh Vacuum Sealer and I wish I had started using one a lot sooner! In the new house, I also wanted to save space in our freezer and I like that it’s neater & more organized (as crazy as that may sound!) since using the Nutri Fresh. And freezing food properly is a necessary thing to consider when feeding your family to reduce waste but also being able to see what’s in the freezer that’s been neatly stored. In the past, I have tossed out so much meat because it’s either forgotten or has freezer burn and that’s beyond wasteful and embarrassing to admit. Since using the Nutri Fresh Vacuum Sealer which is quite easy and straight forward to use, it has been very effective and a useful device in the kitchen and it’s saving me space in my freezer as well as avoiding freezer burn! I buy meat on sale, like the 50% off about to expire in bulk whenever I can I find specials and since using the Hamilton Beach vacuum sealer, nothing gets wasted.
What are the benefits of vacuum sealing your food with Nutri Fresh? Here are my key favourites:
1) Year-round freshness! Plus you can sous-vide with your vacuum-sealed meals.
2) Reduce waste
3) Marinate! Have your meals ready in a flash by marinating them when you seal.
4) Vacuum sealing adds layers of protection from external sources and you won’t need to worry about freezer burn
5) By sealing your food you and removing the air you’ll get more flavour from your food and you’ll be preserving the nutritional value
The bags are BPA free, they are recyclable but not compostable and are super easy to align the bag, close and seal. The extra-wide vacuum chamber makes it versatile to vacuum seal any size bag. You can vacuum seal for delicate foods such as fish, normal seal for dry food(like veggies) and extend seal for moist foods(like chicken, ground pork, beef etc). So in a nutshell, whether it’s fresh seafood or fragile herbs, you control the food sealing process with vacuum sealing controls as well as advanced settings like Extended Seal, for sealing foods with some liquid.
Lastly, one of my favourite things about vacuum sealing is saving leftovers! No need to finish that stew right away or whatever else you made. Vacuum seal it and toss it in the freezer to enjoy at a later date. I hope you’ll add the Nutri Fresh to your Christmas Wish List because it’s a “Foodie” Must have and it’s something you’d never think to get but you’ll be amazed at just how much you use it!
Where to buy? You can find the Nutri Fresh at Amazon.ca, Walmart, Best Buy, Bed Bath and Beyond.
