Reynolds Handi-Vac Vacuum Sealer
Has anyone seen, bought and/or tried this appliance yet?

I saw it advertised in a commercial on the Fod Network and thought that I'd try it. Now I'm so glad that I did!

I got so sick and tired of the bags for the larger vacuum sealers because they just won't retain their vacuum seal and they keep on working themselves loose!

The machine works with the Reynolds Handi-Vac Vacuum Seal bags which come in 1-qt. and 1-gallon sizes. The bags work great and so far, they have not become loose around the food! They help keep damaging air away from the food so that there is no freezer burn and food spoilage.

Corey, I was looking at the vacuum sealer - hmmmm - now I might get one - thanks for the input.

You're welcome, Michelemarie! You can can get it at your local supermarket, along with the bags, which are right next to it on the shelf.:smile::chef:

How is it different from a foodsaver? Got a link or pic?

Here is the website.
Alcoa: Reynolds Handi-Vac
I've not tried it but am interested. I have a FoodSaver but it is really bulky and takes a lot of counter space. There are times when I want to freeze just one bag and don't pull it out because it is so big. This little thing would fit right in my drawer with the bags. I think I will try it out.

I thought that it might be interesting news to others, but it seems as though I was wrong, for I'm now being poked at for posting the info!!:mad::mad:

:huh:Aw come on Cory Im just having a little fun.I will be looking for it as well and if it seems more convinient than dragging out the food saver then I must have onel. :smile::smile::smile:

Thanks jabbur

Hey, that's pretty cool. No more trimming down the bags until they are no longer practical to keep. I like that ziploc idea. I wonder if they're dishwasher safe like the FS bags.... I like the battery power, too.
This seems more practical than a FS for items such as cheese that get tosssed back into the fridge after use. I think I just found my sister's Christmas present!
