Here's one I'm going to share with you all to start this out, and frankly I think you're going to love it:

I enjoy cooking, and as you all know I'm an avid fisherman. When you add up the expense of a boat, fuel, bait, tackle, etc, it becomes apparent that any fish you catch should be kept to an absolute perfection. ( added up the darned thing probably cost 400 dollars a pound!) That means cleaning it promptly and properly. That means icing it as soon as humanly possible. But it also means storing it somehow.

What ever won't be eaten immediately, has to be frozen. But regular freezer bags just plain suck. They allow too much air in, and in just a month you'll have ice crystals everywhere and the dreaded "freezer burn". Yuck, that's no good. So, most people that care about food quality go and buy a vacuum sealer. This is a great tool no doubt and I've frozen and stored everything from steak to fish, to crabmeat, to you name it in them. I use a vacuum sealer from Cabelas that cost somewhere around 200 bucks. It works perfect.

Well, about three months ago I'm at a neighbor's house and she loves to cook. In fact, she's a professional cook at the local College. So, there's always something yummy at Ellen's house and this day was no different. I was pilfering a few cookies, when she tossed  a ziplock vacuum bag on the counter, along with this weird little plastic gizmo. I'm pretty mechanically inclined and it only took me a second to understand what it was for. It was a miniature hand powered vacuum sealer.

She asked if I'd place the remaining cookies in the quart bag and vacuum seal it. Well I have to tell you , I didn't know what to say! I had never seen one before. Sure enough, the bags are just like any ordinary quart or gallon size ziplock bag. But, near the top there's a little round "dot", and what you do is place the "pump" over the dot, pull the handle a couple times and watch in amazement as the air gets sucked out and the bag conforms perfectly to the contents inside. The whole process takes a whopping 10 seconds.

There's no clumsy machine to pull out. No plug to plug in. No bags to cut to size. A simple one ounce pump that's about 4 inches long ( looks like a big hypodermic needle) and their special bags. Not only that, where my commercial vacuum sealer was 200 bucks, you can get the "starter kit" for under 4.00 dollars. Yes folks, 4 bucks for a handful of bags and the pump.

This is the best thing I've ever seen for day to day storage. We use it every single day. Did you just slice some cheese and want the rest to be fresh? put it in the bag, give it three pumps and it's sealed air tight. How about that half an onion? How about the leftover chicken wings? How about a million different things??  I cannot count the times we've used it, because it's several times a day. Did you slice some limes for that vodka cocktail? Got a package of crackers you only ate 5 of? Put em in a bag and give em a pump. The whole process takes about 10 seconds.

This is one of the very best kitchen gadgets I've ever found. Ever. Thank you Ellen. I never have soggy chips, moldy cheese, wilted greens, funky pistachio's, or freezer burned foods. The bags come in quart and gallon size and both freeze perfectly. Not only that, but the bags are REUSABLE!! yep. open the bag, take out some cookies and give it a few pumps. Sealed perfectly airtight again.

Here's a picture from Ziplock's page, and I encourage you all to go get one of these and some extra bags. In a week you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. And best of all.. it's 4 dollars folks. Four bucks.

Plastic surgery has managed to give countless people an extension of their youth, at least in the physical sense. However, failed plastic surgeries are tragically common as well, since so many people get plastic surgeries today and the sample size is large enough to accommodate a wide range of successes and failures. The before and after plastic surgery gone wrong pictures can be absolutely devastating to see, particularly in the case of attractive celebrities who should have left well enough alone. Some celebrities become completely unrecognizable afterwards, destroying their careers in the process and ruining their image in more ways than one.

The only major problem I see with <a href="http://vacuumsealeradviser.com/">vacuum sealers</a> is over the long term they start leaking air through the plastic. For some reason one side of the bag (I imagine it’s the side with the rough surface) breaks down and will leak air. I own a vacuum sealer and use it for frozen foods but decided to go with mylar bags and oxygen absorbors for anything else.

Thanks for your useful sharing! Ziploc Vacuum Freezer System is good for food preservation, but I think that using a vacuum sealer machine also gives you more benefits. A good vacuum sealer will help you save more money, save time and protect your health, because it can be stored more food for a longer period. You can refer to vacuum sealers of the famous such as FoodSaver, Weston, VacMaster...
