Thawing and Reheating Vacuum-Sealed Foods Always thaw foods in either refrigerator or microwave — do not thaw perishable foods at room temperature. To reheat foods in a microwave in a FoodSaver ® Fresh Container, release vacuum and you can keep the lid on. Zipper bags must be partially open/ unzipped on microwave. Guidelines for Meat: Note: Beef may appear darker after vacuum sealing due to the removal of oxygen. This is not an indication of spoilage. Preparation Guidelines for Hard Cheeses: To keep cheese fresh, vacuum seal it after each use. When you’re ready to reseal the cheese, just place it back on the FoodSaver ® Fresh Container or zipper bags and vacuum again. IMPORTANT: Due to the risk of anaerobic bacteria, Soft cheeses should never be vacuum sealed. Preparation Guidelines for Vegetables: Vegetables need to be blanched before vacuum sealing. This process stops the enzyme action that could lead to loss of flavor, color and texture. To blanch vegetables, place them in boiling water or in the microwave until they are cooked, but still crisp. Blanching times range from 1 to 2 minutes for leafy greens and peas; 3 to 4 minutes for snap peas, sliced zucchini or broccoli; 5 minutes for carrots; and 7 to 11 minutes for corn on the cob. After blanching, immerse vegetables in cold water to stop the cooking process. Finally, dry vegetables on a towel before vacuum sealing. Note: Some foods (including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, onion, mushrooms, garlic and bananas) naturally emit gases during storage. Therefore, after blanching, they must be stored in freezer only. IMPORTANT: Due to the risk of anaerobic bacteria, Fresh mushrooms, onions and garlic should never be vacuum sealed.
8 Food Preparation and Reheating Tips (cont.) S E N I L E D I U G
Preparation Guidelines for Leafy Vegetables: First wash the vegetables, and then dry with a towel or salad spinner. After they are dried, put them in a FoodSaver ® Fresh Container and vacuum seal as normal. Store in refrigerator. Preparation Guidelines for Fruits: You can vacuum seal portions for baking, or in your favorite combinations for easy fruit salad all year round. If storing in the refrigerator, we recommend using a FoodSaver ® Fresh Container. Preparation Guidelines for Baked Goods: To vacuum seal soft or airy baked goods, we recommend using a FoodSaver ® Fresh Container so they will hold their shape. To save time, make cookie dough, pie shells, whole pies, or mix dry ingredients in advance and vacuum seal for later use. Preparation Guidelines for Coffee and Powdery Foods: To prevent food particles from being drawn into vacuum pump, place a coffee filter or paper towel at top of bag or canister before vacuum sealing. You can also place the food in its original bag inside a FoodSaver ® Zipper Bag, or use a FoodSaver ® Fresh Container to vacuum seal. Preparation Guidelines for Liquids: Wait for hot liquids to cool to room temperature before vacuum sealing in a FoodSaver ® Fresh Container, vacuum sealing hot liquids may result in loss of vacuum.
9 Guidelines G For Successful Vacuum Sealing U I D E L I N E Vacuum Sealing and Food Safety S The vacuum sealing process extends the life of foods by removing most of the air from the sealed container, thereby reducing oxidation, which affects nutritional value, flavor and overall quality. Removing air can also inhibit growth of microorganisms, which can cause problems under certain conditions: Mold – Easily identified by its fuzzy characteristic. Mold cannot grow in a low oxygen environment; therefore vacuum sealing can slow the growth of mold. Yeast – Results in fermentation, which can be identified by smell and taste. Yeast needs water, sugar and a moderate temperature to grow. It can also survive with or without air. Slowing the growth of yeast requires refrigeration, while freezing stops it completely. Bacteria – Results in an unpleasant odor, discoloration and/or soft or slimy texture. Under the right conditions, anaerobic bacteria such as Clostridium Botulinum (the organism that causes Botulism) can grow without air and sometimes cannot be detected by smell or taste. Although it is extremely rare, it can be very dangerous. To preserve foods safely, it is critical that you maintain low temperatures. You can significantly reduce the growth of microorganisms at temperatures of 40°F (4°C) or below. Freezing at 0°F (-17°C) does not kill microorganisms, but stops them from growing. For long-term storage, always freeze perishable foods that have been vacuum sealed, and keep refrigerated after thawing. It is important to note that vacuum sealing is NOT a substitute for canning and it cannot reverse the deterioration of foods. It can only slow down the changes in quality. It is difficult to predict how long foods will retain their top-quality flavor, appearance or texture because it depends on age and condition of the food on the day it was vacuum sealed IMPORTANT: Vacuum sealing is NOT a substitute for refrigeration or freezing. Any perishable foods that require refrigeration must still be refrigerated or frozen after vacuum sealing. 10 Troubleshooting Problem Solution
Fresh Appliance is not vacuuming air out of the Zipper Bag Vacuum Nozzle and Air Valve are not making secure contact Air was removed from the bag but now air has re-entered. The FoodSaver® Fresh Container will not vacuum • Ensure zipper is firmly closed. Slide fingers across entire zipper. • Air valve is not on flat surface. Reposition bag so the air valve lies flat on appliance platform with no food under air valve. • Ensure Vacuum Nozzle is centered over the gray circle and placed flat on air valve. Apply moderate pressure. • Examine zipper and valve of bag. Food debris in zipper or valve may cause leakage and allow air to enter. • Sometimes moisture or food material along seal edges of the zipper or beneath the valve prevents bag from sealing properly. Wipe the inside of bag around zipper and beneath valve and attempt to reseal. • If you are vacuum packaging sharp food items, bag may have been punctured. Use a new bag if there is a hole. Cover sharp food items with a soft cushioning material, such as a paper towel, and reseal. • Make sure lid is closed securely on all 4 sides. Please refer to the “How to vacuum seal with containers” section on page 3. • Make sure rubber gasket on inside of lid is free from food materials. Make sure the gasket on the inside of the lid is secure in place. • Examine rim of container for cracks or scratches. Any gaps can prevent containers G from vacuuming properly. Make sure container valve is clean. Please refer to the N "Care" section on page 6. I T
