Great Way to Remove Freezer Burn

Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Easy to use, fast storage of items
The Bottom Line: Visit BJ's for the cheapest price of the REYNOLD'S HANDI-VAC then get packing with fun.
You see the machine they are advertising that sucks the air out of bags & cost you $165.00. Take up too much space & the price of the bags also.

We were at BJ's and in the plastic bag area for food storage in the freezer. You have double thick freezer bags from ZipLoc & Glad and neither really work and are hard to get open & closed. Then I saw this large box with a smaller box atop it with a handheld item and it read REYNOLD'S HANDI-VAC VACUUM SEALER. It was 27 gallon size bags, 3 quart size bags the the air remover which is handheld. Then price of the other bags was the same $1 a bag, and we get a few free with the air remover. We saw the 3 quart bags with the air remover in what they advertised as the TEST PAK for $8 at the grocer. So this was a deal & BJ's will take back an unsatisfactory product without a hassle. So we bought it.
Bought steaks, chicken breasts & Italian sausage. So home to try it out. Opened the gallon size box which has them rolled inside & easily get one at a time out of the box. Put 3 chicken breasts inside, spacing them so air is around them & they are flat on the surface of the counter. Then take the handheld air remover & put it over the navy blue circle, push the button with your index finger & watch the show as the air is slowly removed & it is all puckered up. HOW NEAT!
So that was 5 bags of chicken. Then the steaks which were 2 to a pack and again how neat to watch it work. Then the quart size 3 pack took care of the Italian sausage with 4 large links in each bag.
Very easy to write on the date of storage and they state the food is good for a year in the freezer. Then I cut up a pineapple & put the pieces into the bag instead of the large plastic storage container. It takes up very little space in the fridge or in the freezer. When we wanted a bowl to enjoy, we just pull open the bag & take what we want out & reseal it & suck the air out.
This is one very unique item that I am very satisfied with and in the freezer it looks much healthier than the Zip Loc or Glad freezer bags I have used in the past. So I am sold especially when BJ's has it so cheap!
