To vacuum package soft or airy baked goods, we recommend using a FoodSaver® Canister so they will hold their shape. To save time, make cookie dough, pie shells and whole pies, or mix dry ingredients in advance and vacuum package for later use.
When vacuum packaging coffee in a Round Canister, place a coffee filter or napkin on top of the coffee before placing the lid on the canister. This will prevent the oil in the coffee (ground or beans) from being drawn up into the seal area and allow for a good seal every time. Loose tea stays fresher when vacuum packaged in a FoodSaver® bag after each use, and you can seal tea bags in your FoodSaver® canisters for ultimate freshness.
Reusable and easy to use and clean, FoodSaver® Bottle Stoppers will keep partially consumed bottles of wine fresh and great-tasting 5x longer than just re-corking the bottle. Bottle stoppers can also help you keep your favorite gourmet liqueurs, vinegars and oils fresher longer, because they keep out the oxygen that creates “off” flavors. To vacuum package non-carbonated bottled liquids, you can use a FoodSaver® Bottle Stopper with the original container. Remember to leave at least one inch of room between contents and bottom of Bottle Stopper, then re-seal bottles after each use.
Your snack foods will maintain their freshness longer when you vacuum package them… nobody likes stale crackers or soggy popcorn! For best results, use a FoodSaver® Canister for crushable items like cookies, crackers and chips. Buy these items in large money-saving sizes and vacuum package in our 2-, 4-, and 6-quart bulk canisters to keep them fresh for weeks. For shorter-term storage, simply seal the top of the original bag with your vacuum sealer.
