A while ago my lovely mum bought us a cryovac machine from Aldi. I was very sceptical at first as to how often it would be used...but LETMETELLYOU!
Its amazing! We use it ALL the time. When we buy meat (incl chicken and seafood) we seal it up before freezing which gets rid of nasty freezer burn. When I have excess of not so frequently used herbs I do the same. Kaffir lime leaves always on hand! Leftover spag bol? No worries - cryovac for later use!
Not only does it help the food, it means Im not using so much room in my freezer.
Woot! Go on...do it..get yourself one~
