Keeping your food safe from freezer burn and waste with Nutri Fresh Vacuum Sealer from Hamilton Beach

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!  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 wanted to save space in our freezer and I like things neat & more organized (as crazy as that may sound!) since using the Nutri Fresh.   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 Nutri Fresh Vacuum Sealer Features:

  • Extra-wide vacuum chamber
  • Versatile controls:
  • Vacuum & Seal for traditional sealing
  • Seal only for making bags from rolls
  • Vacuum only for delicate food
  • Normal seal for dry food
  • Extended seal for moist food
  • Includes two 11 in. x 20 ft. heat-seal roll and 4 gallon-size & 6 quart-size heat-seal bags

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, Walmart, Best Buy, Bed Bath and Beyond.

    A vacuum sealer makes so much sense. I usually make enough food for leftovers, but then they spoil while in the freezer. Would be nice to help the food last longer and stay fresher.

  2. Michelle W | 17th Dec 19

    I used my MIL vacuum sealer a few weeks ago. Seriously thinking about buying one now. Yay to no more freezer burn foods.

  5. Alison Braidwood | 17th Dec 19

    This looks useful. I’m terrible at remembering to label foods I freeze, so end up throwing out more than I should.

    Thank you for the great review. I’ve been thinking of getting one and this helps.

  7. Rosanne Robinson | 17th Dec 19

  8. Jennifer (@JusticeSadie) Conlin | 17th Dec 19

    This would save us a bundle on food waste. I need this in my life!

  9. Natalie | 17th Dec 19

    I forgot how much I missed having a vacuum sealer until now. I used to use it to seal cookies I was sending in care packages. They were fresh even after weeks in transit. Maybe time to invest in a new one…

    I like using our vacuum sealer for meat. Was using it less since I went to a vegan diet. I have recently started cooking beans from dry beans and vacuuming sealing and freezing them.

  18. Janice Cournoyer | 18th Dec 19

    After reading your informative post on the Hamilton Beach Nutri Fresh Vacuum Sealer, I will have to get one. Less food waste, great for freezing my garden vegetables, and large buys of meat. Less freezer burn.

  19. Jenness M | 18th Dec 19

    I’m a cheese-a-holic so I’d love to have one of these to stop the mold that seems to grow so quickly! Definitely on my to buy list.

  33. Donna S | 18th Dec 19

    My Dad had one of these and I cannot believe how well it kept food fresh and less waste! 🙂

  54. Tracy Morin | 19th Dec 19

    I love the idea of marinading in the seal…brilliant! We eat alot of cheese and I often buy it discounted, shred it and put it in the freezer. To take more air out would be fabulous to ensure the cheese doesn’t get frosty so quickly.
    Thank you kindly for the article!

  55. Devon Harvey | 20th Dec 19

    A vacuum sealer is a perfect thing to go with a sous vide

    I think every kitchen should have one!!

    Vacuum sealing is so awesome, we do all our meat , and seafood , lasts so much longer than normal baggies !

  75. Judy Cowan | 26th Nov 20

    I think this is one small appliance that all kitchens should have, we have one and LOVE is, definitely cuts down on waste.

  76. Janet M | 29th Nov 20

    I used a vacuum sealer years ago but this one is so much better and useful.

  77. Jeannie Lam | 30th Nov 20

    I have been considering getting one of these because I noticed when I buy in large quantity, which is cheaper, i’m not able to finish it all…so at the end when I’m trying to save money, I’m actually not.
