a food printer would be so coolGuys, I hate to bump an old thread and bring up an old topic, but the whole point behind that vacuum pack / sealer machine isn't just to indefinitely freeze meat for a long period of time without it going bad.
Vacuum packed sealers are generally used for sealing and freezing up cooked dishes. Heston Blumenthal uses it to vacuum pack cooked meals he makes and it retains basically 100% of the flavour / texture / goodness of the meal.
So yeah, in short, you don't go and buy an expensive vacuum packer to just freeze store bought meat. It's more for freezing meals you've done without ruining the quality of it. I don't know about you guys, but when I cook a fantastic meal, I hate putting leftovers in the freezer because I know it'll end up becoming horrible. Frozen stew? God, disgusting. Potatoes become some sort of alien thing, horrible texture and all squishy, and it's just not nice unless you really have to. So yeah, just letting you guys know :) Because as you can tell, all the pics of the vacuum packer includes cooked foods, such as the fish with the herbs and lemon, or the chicken with the rub on it.
