Finally Bought a FoodSaver
 
I finally broke down and bought a FoodSaver Monday night. A V1085 at Costco for $129. Came with the set of canisters, some bags, and a couple rolls of mat'l. Also bought a bulk box of mat'l.
Used it Tuesday night to Vac seal some (bought in bulk) chicken breasts.

Yes I know I should have done it long ago. But I sort of like eating a whole pork butt in one sitting. :wink: Kidding.

'Bout time, Chris. What I can't understand is why you waited 'till today to tell us??? :roll:

Go to Sam's or Costco, but the whole ribeye which you can get for about 6 bucks a pound sometimes. Ask them to slice it to your preference.
Bring it home, vac pac 'em and freeze em. You can save big bucks this way. My local stores sell ribeyes for 9.99 a pound. You can save around 30 bucks for every 10 pounds.

Yep! They can pay for themselves in no time when you buy in bulk :D

Thought I would calm down the BB with a little FoodSaver talk. :omm:
I think some of us could use it.
Not me, I don't give a shit.

So, is the one I got any good? I wish I would have bought one a while back when they were on the Amazon Friday Sale. I think it was like $89.

Their site, www.tilia.com , doesn't show the V1085, only the 1075. Larry bought one last month and his wasn't listed either. I don't get it. At least yours can be found with a google search (Larry's couldn't). It's a good unit if you compare using the 1075. Many people on TVWB have the 1050 (myself included) and it's great!

Finney 01-21-2005 03:52 PM

Yeah, mine looks like the 1075, 1200, and 1205. It's white and 'brushed chrome' instead of black and BC like the 1200 and 1205.
Seems to work well so far.

Good for you Finnster!! You'll love it, I love my 1050!! :D

Didn't Dougie D. tell you when they were last on sale? :twisted:

Woodman 01-23-2005 05:36 PM

I don't have one either. Been too busy buyin up EZ Ups , chafing dishes, cookware, knives,pits, and the like. I will get one eventually though. :roll: Woody

Woodman 01-23-2005 05:46 PM

I like being able to reheat in boiling water. It keeps the food moist where both convection and microwave cooking tend to dry things out. WM

Greg Rempe 01-23-2005 05:49 PM

WoodSaver, you don't have a food vac yet...thought that was standard purchase after the pit! :shock:

Woodman 01-23-2005 05:52 PM

Standard after taking delivery of the pit. ;-)

Greg Rempe 01-23-2005 05:53 PM

10-4 :D

I microwave frozen and thawed PP (vacuum sealed) all the time with no moisture loss.. There's no where for it to go. :-)

Woodman 01-23-2005 07:46 PM

Don't they splode? I always thought sealed stuff could splode in the microwave? Was my mom lyin to me? Hey wait, can you put metal in them too?

Nick Prochilo 01-23-2005 07:53 PM

Woody, only put metal in on the forth of July! It's the only day of the year that it's excepted!

01-23-2005 08:02 PM

Haven't sploded one yet but I almost did once. Hit an extra "0" on the timer :shock: I don't heat them up on high. 30 to 40% and I keep an eye on them. The sealed bag keeps all the moisture inside. :-)

01-23-2005 08:12 PM

Jane's right and some have thermometers that are metal too. Don't know how they do that but you still can't put a plate with metal trim in there :shock:

Actually I posted that they were on sale last time, then didn't buy one. I thought the Costco price was better than it was. :?
