Your FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System with SmartSeal™ Technology has a special Quick Marinate Cycle which will last about ten minutes. During the Cycle, the vacuum motor will "hold" the vacuum for several minutes then release the vacuum allowing the food to "rest" for 30 seconds. This process will then repeat two more times. Use the FoodSaver® Quick Marinating Canister (with clear lid and large white knob). During the Quick Marinate Cycle, make sure the knob on accessory lid is set to OPEN. Do not set knob to Vacuum.
