Fill a vacuum-sealing container with the food you wish to preserve and then tightly close the lid onto the container until it makes a slight clicking sound.
Place the end of the accessory hose into the hose port of your vacuum sealer. Push the hose in as far as it will go then wiggle it slightly to ensure that it’s in securely and won’t come out during the sealing process. Place the other end of the hose into the small hole in the lid of your vacuum-sealing container.
Turn on the vacuum sealer and press the accessory vacuum button on the unit. Hold the lid of the container down tightly onto the container body while the vacuum sealer removes the air from the container. The length of time necessary will vary according to the size of the container and the amount of air present at the start of the procedure.
Listen to the motor of the vacuum sealer as it removes the air from the container. The motor will stop soon after all the air is removed. Twist the seal around the container hole to the closed position and then remove the hose from the lid when you hear the motor stop. The lid will self-seal, maintaining the vacuum within.
