So there are a couple things that are much different – and better – with this Foodsaver 4400 vacuum sealer than my previous vac seal system. Before, I was using a very basic model from another brand that wasn’t as reliable, especially with sous vide recipes that included a lot of liquid. Now I don’t have to worry about getting the perfect seal every time.
The Foodsaver 4400 vacuum sealer has a nifty built-in cutter. With my old vacuum sealer, I was cutting the rolls with scissors, which led to wasted bags. With the built-in cutter, the FoodSaver® 3PK 11″ Vacuum Seal Rolls cut perfectly each time.
Another major difference is that my previous vacuum seal often left air bubbles in the bag. Pesky air bubbles interfere with sous-vide cooking, because the air makes the food float. If the food floats in the sous-vide water, it won’t cook evenly. With the FoodSaver® V4440, the bags have sealed just-right each time. The system is hands-off, and a light indicates when the seal is complete. It takes a lot of the guesswork out of vacuum sealing, which is great. The rolls are BPA free. Another bonus is that food frozen in the vacuum seal bags can go straight from the freezer into the sous vide machine. Pretty sweet.
