Oh. I store meat in the freezer in freezer bags (not vacuum sealed and don't seem to have probs. Either that or it goes in the freezer in the supermarket packet. Same with fish.No. I'm stopping right after those 2 things. Well, I can't store meats in the freezer without vacuum sealing them.
I'm sure you are right but I have to say I've never had any problems... so far!Frost-free freezers are the ones considered to be the most damaging, because the chilled frigid air is CONSTANTLY BLOWN around the food.
Therefore, food must be tightly sealed to prevent freezer burn, browning and drying out.
Great tool Shermie. I originally bought a vacuum sealer for sous vide cooking, but its main use now is for freezer bagging. it's great for freezing left over sauces/gravies - vac pak them, freeze then just pull them out and drop in a pan of boiling water when needed. Instant sauce for midweek steak/fish when you dont want to be bothered making one from scratch.
