Short term storage

Thankgiving leftovers saved in FoodSaver® Fresh Containers

FoodSaver® Fresh Containers are perfect for keeping leftovers stored in the fridge fresh for later in the week. Simply fill the container leaving a bit of extra space at the top and seal with your FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealer to lock in freshness and flavor.

Portion Out Your Leftovers for the Freezer

Save Thanksgiving food in FoodSaver® Portion Pouches with your FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealer to easily heat up one serving at a time and prevent defrosting more than you need. These pouches are also microwave and simmer safe, so it's simple to heat the whole portion at once, without even opening the pouch. Foods that freeze well include turkey, casseroles, soups, stews, and chili.
