@akparker777 Fair. And just like when I bought those $2 (?) 30-pin docks that came with Bluetooth dongles, I’m scared if I see the Martian’s for any cheaper with the “guarantee”, I’ll be in for one of those, too.
Not these turds again! I bought one last time it was DOA. Manufacturer refused to pay shipping to return it. So I payed and guess what it took 3 returns to get one that worked. After you pay to ship back the first one they will pay to have dead turds they send as replacements. I kinda feel like they were hoping you’d just shit can the first dead one.
@thomasbihn Hey i have an idea. Scribe the letters MEH on the inside of the lid then send it back. It will be like a game of hiding rocks. Any other MEH customer that gets it has to number the scribe mark and send it back, it will be fun!
Finally! Been waiting for one of these to come around since I bought the Chefman Sous Vide Precision Cooker on here! Let’s cook all the things!!! OK apparently “/buy” only works at the beginning of posts, as does other commands, so here comes a reply to my own post!
Love the smaller one I bought here, without the roll holder. So much easier to put away, and works great. This one would have to be left on the counter as it would be to bulky to take in and out of a cabinet for us. If you’ve been thinking about buying one, they’re worth it.
@Felyne You chose wisely! I tried a deluxe-ass one from Costco before buying the basic model here.
The automatic pinchy-grabby part is finicky, creates huge wasteful margins, and doesn’t allow you to make snack-sized bags using vertical seals. The built in cutting strip is nice, but you don’t ever just have one roll, so the storage bin is pretty pointless.
Bought this same unit here, at the same price, back in 12/16. Works quite decently, although juicier items don’t always seal 100%. And you’re never going to fit replacement bag rolls into that tiny compartment… just keep them externally and slide the end under the cutter bar.
A great match with my Chefman sous vide – a Meh-riffic sealer and cooker for under $100.
I have one of these. It rocks. Still don’t know how to use the tube, or why I’d want to. Plus the settings don’t seem to change anything in terms of the sealing, but who cares? I sous vide steak that’s been bag sealed and man oh man is it tasty. Also freezer seal fish and such. Worth the dive to buy one. I might just buy another as a backup. - love, a Meh employee who works off commission on sales numbers.
Mee tooo,… ‘Finally! Been waiting for one of these to come around since I bought the Chefman Sous Vide Precision Cooker on here! Let’s cook all the things!!!’ also as someone just said apparently marinating in a vacuum sealed bag really infuses the marinate to your dish. Had some paella chicken recently that was marinated this way and was the very best I’ve ever had!
I pull the trigger, Mama got a brand new ( Re-Ferb ) sealer. (Bronze-dense-feather) seal,seal,seal- seal-it-up mama will take it… (that is super cheesy of me, Stevie Ray Vaughan is probably turning over in his grave now).And James Brown would probably kick me in the nuts.
I appreciate the poetry, but the meter is terrible. Fixed it for you. Added a couplet. Now it’s a sonnet!
I wish that I couldst take my love for thee
And seal it in a pouch not to be torn,
Til lowly poets and high royalty
Can speak their love together without scorn.
But for my heart, there is yet no defense,
As though it hath been wrapped and forth been tossed
Upon warm seas turned there to tenderness,
Its outline whole, but fortitude now lost.
I beg thee, move thy love to shelves of ice,
And give it not to one with noble crown!
I promise thee, it will be just as nice
Whence comes the day that I may take it down.
Our love shall last the longer vacuum-sealed
Til we may feast and make of it a meal.
@genemat You should look into Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers. We bought several of them and no longer have flimsy carrots and broccoli and rotten spring mix. Only down side is that they take up a lot of room in the fridge and so a couple of them have to live on the normal shelves.
Just sayin’ – this thing rocks. I put three entire deer in these little vacuum seal thingies. Kept expecting it to scream “STOP!” all day, but it didn’t. Just kept right on sucking air out and heat sealing. Saved me at least $600 in processing fees. THANKS MEH!
