Put the item(s) into the sealing bag.
Pop open the vacuum sealer's lid and put the sealer bag into the machine. Place the bag's open end into the vacuum sealer's groove.
Close the lid and lock the sealer in place.
Press the "Start" button on the top of the vacuum sealer. Pressing this button will begin to vacuum air and moisture out of the bag (you will see the bag collapse around the food).
Unlock the sealer and pop open the lid when the machine is finished. You can now store the food in the freezer or refrigerator for later use.
Things You Will Need
- Frigidaire sealing bag
- For fresh vegetables, blanch the veggies before vacuum sealing them: Add salt to a boiling pot of water and add ice to separate bowl with cold water. Put the veggies into the boiling water for a couple of minutes (so they are slightly cooked but still crunchy). Immediately after taking them out, put them into the bowl of ice water. Pull the veggies out when they have cooled, then vacuum seal them. When you're ready to use them, they will taste fresh and crisp.
