Re: Vacuum Sealing Gear and Supplies
OK, this "seals" it, I'm getting one.
I've always wanted one for cooking. I've played around with using ziploc bags for easy clean-up cooking. I've put the vegetarian egg scramble in one bag, the meat-and-goodness filled egg scramble in another, and some black beans in a third. They all go in a pot of boiling water. You haven't dirtied any dishes cooking, and you have a pot of clean, hot water to use to wash up the plates and forks and such. Sort of low-rent sous vide cooking.
A vacuum sealer would make that a lot easier, and would eliminate the occasional blow-out of a failed ziploc. Combined with the idea of vacuum sealing toilet paper and such? Brilliant!
