Re: Practical Vacuum Sealer for Boat

Reasonable handwashing?

Zee, hadn't you heard? Couple of years ago the UN (WHO?) and the AMA butted heads because each one said the other one is teaching the wrong way for washing hands??

That's part of why I insist southern fried chicken is health food. Nothing survives twenty minutes in boiling oil, that sucker is sterile!

Re: Practical Vacuum Sealer for Boat

I have a run of the mill Seal-a-Meal brand unit. I've had it around 4 years at home and now 2 year on the boat. I buy wanteveer rolls of bags I can find and they have all worked.

BTW - of course fried chicken is health food, but you need to have a beer or wine with it

hell to the yes fried chicken is a health food. it seals well and is perfect for anything. reheat in oven or pan not in a micronuker which changes flavor to make even southern fried chikkin garbage.

neither ama nor un know how to wash hands. only nurses can do that.

Been using this system for decades. Fast. Efficient. Cheap. Takes up little precious room and very easy to use. As a added benefit it helps increase hand grip strength.

Glass is a bit heavier, but will not leach 'god only knows what' chemicals into your food. In my 40 + years of cruising/ boat living i have not broken one jar.

I see how this could work with a limited number of items i.e. soup/sauces, but store my RW pump impellers individually in a Mason jar? Racor filters? A steak? Crackers, chips, etc?
