FoodSaver FSFSSL4440-000 Vacuum Sealer Review
Besides all of the bonus features this model includes, the 4440-000 can also do what the FoodSaver Brand is most known for- it can vacuum seal your foods in specially designed bags to put away in the cupboard or the freezer.
Vacuum sealing can increase the shelf life of dried good significantly.
Also, when using the FoodSaver 4440-000 to vacuum pack food for freezing, not only does it lengthen the shelf life, but it can also prevent that pesky freezer burn (and the waste that comes with it).
No more putting things away to be frugal and prepared only to later come to your food that should be good and find it covered in ice crystals, which ruins your food’s taste and texture.
