OPERATING YOUR STOLLAR APPLIANCE
Thawing food
For the best results, thaw frozen foods in a
refrigerator. Never thaw raw meats, fish, dairy
or poultry at room temperature. Thawing by
microwave may affect the texture of foods. If
thawing by microwave, begin cooking process
immediately after thawing, to prevent bacteria
growth.
Microwaving and Simmering
Cord storage box
Put the power cord into the storage box in the back
of the machine when not using. Do not wrap the
cord around the appliance.
SEALING BASICS
Vacuum sealing is an easy and convenient way to
help preserve the freshness of your food. Vacuum
sealing is not intended to replace refrigeration or
freezing. Food that normally requires refrigeration
(below 4 degrees) or freezing (below -17 degrees)
even when vacuum sealed should still be
refrigerated or frozen. Vacuum sealing will help
retain your food’s flavour, colour and texture. It may
not stop the growth of certain kinds of bacteria
and yeast fermentation. Vacuum sealing is not a
substitute for heat preserving or canning.
Do not serve or consume food that has an odour,
texture or appearance of food that has gone bad.
NOTE
Vacuum seal can not restore or revive
food that is past its prime.
The VacuumFresh bags and rolls are microwave
and simmer safe. To microwave, cut the bag on
one corner so that the steam can escape and place
directly into the microwave. To simmer, place bag
into the saucepan of simmering water with the top
of the bag out of the water for easy removal.
NOTE
Once bags or rolls are used in the
microwave or cooked in a pot, they
should not be re-used.
Soups and Sauces
To vacuum seal soups and sauces, pour liquid in
a bag and leave at least 5cm of space at the top of
the bag. Do not vacuum seal at this point. Place
filled bag up right in the freezer and allow liquid
to freeze. Remove frozen bag and then proceed to
vacuum seal it.
NOTE
If you only require small amounts of
stock or other liquids, you can pre-freeze
in ice cube trays and use as much or as
little as you wish. Try vacuum sealing ice
cubes in advance to save time and freezer
burn.
Freezing
Fruit
Vacuum sealing helps prevent freezer burn by
removing the air in the bag.
For best results many fruits can be frozen before
vacuum sealing. Wash and dry the fruit. Then
spread on a tray or baking sheet. Place the cooking
sheet in the freezer for about 2 hours, then transfer
fruit to a vacuum sealer bag and vacuum seal.
Placement (storage)
The back of a freezer has a more constant
temperature than other areas near the door of
a freezer. Delicate foods which may thaw easily
should be kept at the back of the freezer.
OPERATING YOUR STOLLAR APPLIANCE
Vegetables
Frozen vegetables sometimes turn black if they are
not blanched before freezing. To blanch vegetables,
fill 1 litre pot with water and bring to the boil. Also
fill a large bowl with ice water and have a colander
or strainer on hand. Add vegetables to boiling
water and cook for the times suggested. Vegetables
should retain a vibrant colour and remain crisp
and ‘under cooked’. Remove from boiling water
and plunge into ice water until completely chilled.
Drain as necessary, dry, and transfer to a bag for
vacuum sealing.
If vacuuming without freezing first, you should also
insert a paper towel into the bag and over each side
of the meat before vacuum sealing to absorb excess
moisture and juices.
NOTE
Vacuum sealing may cause meat to
darken. This is due to the removal of
oxygen and does not indicate spoilage.
Ground Coffee & other powdery foods
Food Blanching Time
Due to small particle like nature of ground coffee,
it may be necessary to wrap a paper towel around
the coffee being vacuum sealed, or place the coffee
in a bag or the original packaging prior to vacuum
sealing.
Food
Blanching
Time
Broccoli florets – trimmed
1-2 minutes
Carrots – depend on size
Start checking
at 3 minutes
Non edible items
Cauliflower florets – trimmed
1-2 minutes
Corn on the cob
3-4 minutes
The vacuum sealing can be used to help preserve
non edible items:
Green beans
1-2 minutes
Leafy greens such as spinach
30 seconds
Peas (shelled)
1-2 minutes
Sugar snap peas
1-2 minutes
Zucchini – sliced
1-2 minutes
Cruciferous vegetables
Because of gases they omit over time, cruciferous
vegetables should be kept in the freezer rather than
refrigerator after vacuum sealing. These vegetables
include broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts,
cauliflower, kale, and turnips.
Meat, fish & poultry
For best results, wash poultry and whole clean fish
and gently pat dry with a clean paper towel.
Beef, veal, lamb, pork and fish fillets should be
patted dry with a clean paper towel.
This extra step saves you time when you are ready
to cook and also helps to maintain good moisture
levels and shape. For best results, pre-freeze prior to
vacuum sealing for 1-2 hours to retain the moisture
and shape of the meat.
10
Camping, travelling & emergency equipment
Stays dry and takes up less room when it is
vacuum sealed – bandages, matches, clothes, maps,
passport, batteries, torches, film, flares etc.
Silver
Helps prevent tarnishing. To avoid puncturing the
vacuum sealer bags, place a paper towel or soft
material over silver prior to vacuum sealing.
Resealing heat sealed bags
We only recommend using the VacuumFresh bags
for vacuum sealing, however you are able to reseal
bags that have been commercially heat sealed
such as chips, nuts and biscuits. Trim the bag in
a straight line, wipe away any greasy reside or
crumbs that may inhibit the seal. Place the bag over
the sealing area but not into the drip tray and seal.
Plastic bags such as zip lock bags or plastic wrap
cannot be sealed.
