BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- There's no doubt that home cooking with fresh ingredients presents a variety of benefits. However, shopping for them can become expensive, especially when looking at the shocking amount that often goes to waste. On average, over 20% of food is wasted in the US **; that's over $500*** a year worth of fruits, vegetables and grains! To protect that food investment, the FoodSaver® brand, the authority and top-selling brand in vacuum sealing food preservation, introduces the new FoodSaver ® Fresh Appliance, a small and counter space-worthy vacuum sealing appliance ideal for preserving refrigerator and pantry ingredients as well as on-the-go snacks.
Specially-designed for use with FoodSaver ® Fresh Containers and Zipper Bags, the new FoodSaver ® Fresh Appliance is a compact powerhouse. At just 5.5 inches wide x 11 inches tall and taking similar counter space as a one-cup coffee brewing system, it will seal in freshness and keep foods fresh up to twice as long compared to non-vacuum sealing storage methods. Ordinary food storage methods trap air with food, causing foods to lose flavor and nutrition. The new FoodSaver ® Fresh Appliance quickly removes air from specially designed FoodSaver ® Fresh Containers and Vacuum Zipper Bags to help preserve fresh foods and allow consumers to prep grab and go snacks or ingredients for cooking ahead of time, knowing they will taste just as fresh later on .
