Well, it finally happened.
I vac packed 30 pounds of chicken breasts yesterday. While I was doing it, I noticed that my FoodSaver v1090
just didn't sound quite right.....not as vigorous as it once was.
I also noticed that it wasn't pulling chicken juice up into the paper towel I put at the top of the bag like it once did. So, in short, looks like I'm in the market for a new vacuum sealer.
This FoodSaver has been a trooper so I'm inclined to stick with the Food Saver brand. (And whatever brand we end up with must
work with the FoodSaver type bags as we have a ton of them stockpiled.) I'm leaning toward a Professional III
which I can buy here
for $185 shipped.
Thought I'd post to see if anybody has any suggestions on other brands/models.
