Food Saver (post #56602)

I recently purchased a Food Saver and am finding many uses.

However, recently I had some leftover grated mozzarella.  I vacuum sealed it, but it all stuck together.  I had to regrate it but it kind of crumbled apart.

Then I made some cinnamon buns and baked them.   I froze them first, and then I vacuum sealed.  They seemed to get all squished up, so I took them out of bag and froze in zip lock.

Has anyone had luck using the foodsaver for baked goods.  I would like to make some dinner rolls, freeze unbaked, then vacuum seal.  Would this work, or would they get all stuck together.

Thanks, Josie

Yes, the reamalgamation of shredded cheese!!  YOu only do it once.

I often draw a vacuum to "almost" where it starts to shrink the bag but then stop, switch to "seal" and seal it.  It isn't a full vacuum, but still better than a ZipLoc.  That vacuum is a STRONG one--it'll collapse a lot of things!!

I would think your dinner rolls, unbaked and frozen, would be fine to pull the full vacuum. You need to have them flat on something.  Or just pull it to "almost".

Good idea to just vaccum till almost done.  Yesterday after I made the dinner rolls and let them cool, I vaccum sealed one package.  I watched in horror as my rolls seemed to pull together and shrivel up.  I immediately unsealed and they bounced back.


I love this machine!

Forgot to add that I froze before vacuum sealing.,

They are all prices depending (post #56602, reply #5 of 6)

They are all prices depending on the various features. Look on Amazon or QVC. Tuesday Morning stores often have some at excellent prices.
I have gotten them for as little as $50 online, and $30 at TM. They are now selling them with many more features, and not the plain ones, so are more expensive.
