Only some things need to be frozen first Lin....bread, sausages, rissoles and prepared meals.

So you can't cook the meal and then vacuum seal it and then freeze it?

I know there is something earlier in the thread....I must go back and have a look before I buy one.

I was of the thinking that we would only use it for camping trips as our kids would eat all our leftovers before I could get to seal them !!!! :*** :***
Therefore I would only be using it a couple of times a year so it would sit in the cupboard with the piemaker, eggpoacher etc.....

Still tossing up whether it's worth it.

Not if there are any juices in the meal XB.....it sucks the juices out and will not give you a proper seal.

Well then decsion made. :+

I think I will stick to my plastic containers of frozen food, works well now so would only be spending more money on stuff I won't use.

Thanks for the great advice once again :+

Quick question for those with eBay vacuum sealers ... there seems to be two types ..... which one do you have and/or which would be preferable?

OR this one that has an inbuilt roll holder

The 2 types Kylie could also take size into account and/or auto or not. I personally don't have an eBay one, mine is the small Sunbeam which I bought from the factory seconds outlet in Sydney.

Doesn't quite answer your question but might give you more food for thought. The second one looks like it takes the small roll.

You might also look at whether or not you want to use pre cut bags......

Good point, I should have added that they both seal up to a maximum of 30cm. The sealing part seems to be auto in the second one, whereas you have to press down on the frist one after all the air is taken out.

Mine has the automatic sealer which is handy. Just one push of a button and it'll cut out when it's done.

I have one like the second one, bought it off ebay and it is fantastic. Mine takes bags and rolls. It vacuums and seals with the push of one button and you can also just seal - great for unfinished packets of chips and crackers. I originally purchased it only for camping but also use it at home as it saves heaps of space in the freezer.
