On this installment of Buy or Bust, we’re taking a brief look at why vacuum sealers are worth the investment and what benefits they offer over other packaging methods with the Cabela's Pro-Elite Vacuum Sealer.
There is a pretty lengthy list of reasons why vacuum packaging your wild game meat is smart, among them is the fact that it preserves your meat by reducing/eliminating oxygen exposure which prevents the growth of bacteria and mold. Vacuum sealing protects meat from freezer burn by creating an air-tight seal that prevents ice crystals from forming on the meat. Plus, it increases the life of the meat in the freezer from 6-12 months (when packaged with other methods) to 2-3 years when vacuum sealed. Plus, it’s an easy process and doesn’t take any more time than traditional packaging methods.
The Cabela's Pro-Elite Vacuum Sealer is a great tool to invest in with professional-grade power and functionality. Using a heavy-duty double-piston pump and deep vacuum chamber, an airtight seal is accomplished delivering fresher tasting food for extended periods of time. The machine is controlled with a touch-pad that offers three different sealing levels and two vacuum options and a LED countdown shows the sealing progress. The unit itself is compact, about the size of a small briefcase and it’s made of stainless steel which makes it easy to clean.
The meat is the real trophy of any hunt, so keeping it as fresh as possible in the freezer is important. Pulling meat out of the freezer only to find it has substantial freezer burn or has dried out is a bummer. Vacuum sealing your wild game can help eliminate problems and keep your hard earned meat fresher, longer.
Keep it fresh and tasty!
