Storing Your Vacuum Preservation: Keep the unit in a flat and safe place, out of the reach of children. ·VACUUM BAG GUIDELINES Vacuum sealing for the refrigerator For the busy family, on-the-go meals can be prepared ahead and vacuum-sealed in individual servings, and ready to heat anytime. Preparing food for the freezer 1. In properly stored conditions, the vacuum sealer helps you to maintain the food’s freshness. Try to start with the freshest food possible. 2. To freeze the foods which need to hold its shape or fragile, then vacuum seal in a vacuum bag and return to freezer. Food such as meats, berries and breads can be frozen without fear of freezer burn for up to 24 hours. 3. For vacuum sealing liquid-based foods, such as soups, casseroles or stews, first freeze it in a baking pan or tempered dish, vacuum seal, label and stack in your freezer as soon as it is in frozen solid, 4. Blanch the vegetables by cooking briefly in boiling water or microwave oven, cool them down in crunchy position, then vacuum seal in convenient portions. 5. To vacuum seal the foods not frozen, two extra inches is required for bag length to allow for expansion while freezing. Place the meat or fish on a paper towel, and vacuum seal with the paper towel in the bag, this way will help to absorb moisture from the foods. 6. Before storing the foods such as tortillas, crepes or hamburger patties, use wax or parchment paper between them to stack the pieces, this will be convenient to remove some of the food, reseal the rest and immediately replace in the freezer. ·FOOD STORAGE SAFETY INFORMATION This Vacuum Preservation System will change the way you purchase and store foods. Once you are accustomed to vacuum packing, it will become an indispensable part of your food preparation. To follow the certain procedures to ensure food quality and safety, when use this appliance to vacuum seal foods: 1. Chemical reactions in the food to air, temperature, moisture, and enzyme action, growth of microorganisms or contamination from insects will cause food spoilage. Page 5 of 8 2. The main element to cause food to lose nutritive value, texture, flavor, and overall quality is oxygen in the air. Most microorganisms’ growth relies on air, for it will carry moisture into and out of foods unless they are protected with moisture-proof packing. Frozen foods being exposed to freezer air will result in freezer burn.. 3. The vacuum seal packing removes up to 90% of the air from the package. It’s approximately 21% oxygen in the air, so 90% air removal leaves a 2% to 3% residual oxygen level in vacuum-sealed foods. When the oxygen level is at or below 5%, as you know, most microorganisms are inhibited from growth 4. In general, there have three categories microorganisms: mold, yeast and bacteria, they are present everywhere, but only under certain conditions they can cause problems. 5. In a low oxygen environment or in the absence of moisture, mold can’t grow; In moisture, Sugar and a moderate temperature circumstance, yeast can grow with or without air. Refrigeration will slow the growth of yeast and freezing stops it completely; Bacteria can grow with or without air. 6. One of the extremely dangerous type of bacteria is clostridium botulinum, and they can grow under the right conditions without air: in the temperature range of 40˚F to 115˚F(4˚to 46˚). Conditions for growth are foods lacking acid, low oxygen environment and temperatures greater than 40˚F(4˚c) for extended time. 7. Frozen, dried, high in acid, salt or sugar foods can resistant to botulinum. Non-acid foods which include meats, seafood, lye-cured olives, poultry, fish, eggs and mushrooms; low-acid foods which are mostly vegetables; medium-acid foods include overripe tomatoes, onions, chili peppers, figs and cucumbers are easy be infected by botulinum; 8. It should be refrigerated for short term and frozen for long-term storage, for the foods most susceptible to botulinum, and consume immediately after heating. 9. Some dried foods, such as flour and cereals may contain insect larvae, if do not vacuum-sealed, larvae may hatch during storage and contaminate the foods. To prevent weevils and other insects from hatching, store these foods in vacuum seal package is necessary. 10. Avoid spoilage: foods should be stored at low temperatures, for few of the microorganisms could growth without air. 11. If Temperatures in the refrigerator greater than 40˚F (4˚C) (especially for extended periods of time), it will support the growth of harmful microorganisms, so we should keep the temperature at 40˚F (4˚C) or below. 12. When the temperature for the freezer is 0˚F (-17˚C) or lower, it’s suitable for store foods, although freezing does not kill microorganisms, it retards their growth. 13. The vacuum-sealed storage temperature will affect dried foods: for their shelf life is extended 3-4 times for every 18˚F (10˚C) drop in temperature. Page 6 of 8 FUNCTIONS 1.The main function of this appliance is to store a wide kind of foods for freshness, longer, flavor and convenience. In general, vacuum packaging keeps food fresh up to three times as long as other traditional food storage methods. Once this appliance as an indispensable part of your life, it will less food spoilage and save more money. 1) Cook in advance to vacuum seal and store individual portions or entire meals. This vacuum bag is not recommended for microwave or boil-in-bag cooking, please use the general cooking method to re-heat the vacuum-sealed foods. 2) Prepare foods in advance for picnics and camping trips or barbecues. 3) Eliminate freezer burn 4) Package foods, such as meat, fish, poultry, seafood and vegetables to freeze or refrigerate. 5) Package dry foods, such as beans, nuts, cereals to store longer. 2. It’s ideal to prepackage ingredients as well as individual portions for the health-conscious, such as weight-conscious or those on diets or nutritional regimes with special requirements. 3. This system can also be used to store and protect other items: valuable items, such as photos, important documents, stamp collections, book collections, jewellery, cards, comics etc.; hardware items, such as screws, nails, studs and bolts; medicines, band-aids and other first-aid items, etc.. General rules for food safety From scientific study and common sense, we can learn the following food safety rules, and it will lead you to improved safety and optimal food storage. 1. If perishable foods have been heated, defrosted or un-refrigerated, consume them immediately. 2. To re-vacuum the vacuum-packed foods after they been opened, and follow the instructions to refrigerate after opening and store re-vacuumed packages properly. 3. The suitable way to defrost your food is to place in refrigerator until defrosted, never defrost foods in hot water or via heat sources, or a microwave oven. 4. It will be harmful if you consume the foods which have been left out at room temperature for more than a few hours, especially if they have been prepared with a thick sauce, in a vacuum package, or in some other low-oxygen environment. 5. To cool down food temperature quickly, please spread vacuum packages evenly throughout the refrigerator or freezer. We advise the following when packaging large volumes of meat, fish, or any food products 1. Before vacuum sealing, it’s necessary to clean your hands, and all utensils and surfaces to be used for cutting and vacuum sealing foods. 2. Refrigerate or freeze the perishable foods immediately, if you have vacuum-sealed them, and do not leave them sitting at room temperature. 3. The shelf life of dry foods such as nuts, coconut or cereals will be extended in vacuum-sealed package, while store them in a cook, dark place. Oxygen and warm temperature will cause high-fat content foods fat to rancidity. 4. Before vacuum sealing some fruit and vegetables, such as apples, bananas, potatoes and root vegetables, peel them will extend their shelf lives. 5. When vacuum seal some vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage fresh for refrigeration, they will emit gases, so it’s need to blanch and freeze these foods before vacuum sealing, Page 7 of 8 TROUBLESHOOTING Nothing happens when press the vacuum sealer 1. Make sure the power cord is correctly plugged into the electrical outlet, and in “on” position. Test electrical outlet by plugging in another appliance, if it not workable, please check the circuit breakers or fuses in your home. 2. Check power cord and plug, and make sure they are not damaged in any way. If damaged, do not use the vacuum sealer. Air is not removed from the bag completely 1. To seal properly, open end of bag should be resting entirely inside vacuum channel area. 2. Check sealing strip and gasket beneath the lid for debris and position. Wipe clean and smooth them back into place. 3. Bag may have a hole. To test, seal the bag with some air in it, submerge in water, and apply pressure. If there are bubbles present, it does indicate a leak and a new bag should be used. 4. To check if lid is completely latched into place. Vacuum sealer bag loses vacuum after being sealed. 1. Wrinkles, crumbs, grease or liquids may cause leaks along the seal. Reopen bag, wipe the top inside of the bag and smooth it out along the sealing strip before resealing. 2. To check if there have moisture or juices from the food present within the bag, if yes, you may need to cut open the bag and reseal it, or use an entirely new bag. Foods with excess liquids should be frozen before vacuum sealing. 3. If items with sharp edges, they may have punctured the bag, and released the vacuum. Cushion sharp edges in the contents of the bag with paper towels. Vacuum sealer not sealing bag properly 1. If sealing strip overheat and melt the bag, it’s necessary to lift the lid and allow sealing strip to cool for a few minutes. 2. Before re-pressing the “seal only” key, allow the unit to resume for 15 seconds.
