    Sainsbury's selling vacuum packer's 20

    I was in Sainsburys in Aberdeen this morning (09/01/16) so assume other branches are the same and saw they were selling electric vacuum packers for 20 reduced from 50. I can't speak to the quality or what they are like to operate but would no doubt be good enough for the 'home butcher'.

    I don't have a use for one but just a heads up for anyone on the look out, for 20 they are probably worth a punt.

    I use mine all the time, they're brilliant! Chuck last nights left overs in a vac bag, and with 200ml of water and a Jet Boil/MSR reactor/Wind Boiler etc you have a nice hot dinner and a warm drink out in the hills with no fuss, mess and very little effort. Just reheat in the bag, gravy and all!

    Reheat in the bag and just cut a slit towards the top of the bag and dig in with a spork. Crimping the corners of the bag before you fill it also makes life a little easier. Roll the bag up when done and chuck it in a zip lock bag or dog poop bag and everything stays spotless.

    Oh one last tip. Squeeze as much air out of the bag manually before sealing if the food is quite wet or make sure you stop the vacuum pump before it starts to suck up your sauce!
