vacuum sealer recommendations
I've decided I need to get a vacuum sealer. I live aboard my boat (alone), so I'm constantly having too much food for one meal and I need to divide it up. I'm thinking a sealer will make the leftovers last longer, especially if I use it to seal the raw ingredients instead of the cooked meal. I want one that is small and reliable, and the bags for it don't cost too much (i.e. total cost of ownership is low). Any recommendations?
For those of you that have one already, how often do you use it? Does my planned usage seem correct? How much longer does stuff last when you use it? Thanks.
