Years ago, when they were only available via direct marketing, my parents bought me a Foodsaver Professional II. I think they got it for me at the LA County Fair – from one of the booths where the guys wears a microphone and demos it for everyone standing around. This may have been 15 years ago now. And for all those years, it has performed like a champ.
For those of you that don’t know what it is or don’t have one, the Foodsaver is a home vacuum sealer. If you’re serious about food – and shopping for food – you MUST have one! With the ever escalating price of beef, pork, lamb and chicken, the Foodsaver is a carnivore’s dream! Once your meat is sealed, it last for months in the freezer, coming out fresh and juicy whenever you’re ready to grill! For those of you that are hunters and fisherman, you know what I’m talking about!
Unfortunately, after all these years, my Pro-II no longer sucks like it used to (hmmm…a universal problem no doubt!). And so, with a heavy heart and good timing, my wife and I trundled off to Costco to purchase a brand new stainless steel Foodsaver while it’s on sale until early May for $30 off the regular price! Boom!
