Vacuum sealing is a great way of preserving food, as it seals off any oxygen from the food itself, thereby preventing the growth of any bacteria on the food. This can extend the shelf-life of food by up to a factor of five.
This form of sealing also locks moisture into the food, thereby preventing dehydration and freezer-burn (ice crystals forming), which preserves the appearance of food as well as its flavour.
Vacuum sealing is also a way to save space and time, as the equipment takes up little space in the kitchen and allows you to prepare food in advance, ready for just when you need it.
If you want total control over your cooking, sous vide is the way for you. Cooking your food sous vide - translation: 'under vacuum' - in a temperature-controlled water bath means that you are in total control of the heat passing through your food and the time it is in there, meaning you cook the food exactly as you need it.
What's more, vacuum sealing food means all of its flavour and juices are locked in, so that your meat is as tasty as it is succulent and your fish is as delightful as it is delicate. You can even poach eggs like never before - and you don't even need a vacuum pouch for that one!
Cooking sous vide also means you save, both on space and time. The equipment takes up little room so you can save space in a crowded kitchen, whilst vacuum sealing means you can prepare food well in advance and cook it easily to save time in a busy schedule.
This vacuum pouch is compatible with most major vacuum sealers, including Andrew James, FoodSaver, Gastrobac, JML, Magic Vac, Rival Seal-A-Meal, SousVide Supreme, VacMaster and Vac-Star.
