I love buying items on sale! I especially love to get meat on discount. Unfortunately I always had a problem with freezer burn. I would use expensive freezer bags and try to get all the air out but it never did the job.
For many years, I thought about buying a foodsaver machine. I loved how the food looked in the commercials: it didn't get freezer burned, cheese didn't mold as easily, and it just looked fresh. But I could never justify buying the machine and then having to pay for the bags to run in machine.
Well, I am happy to say that my problem is solved. I love,love, love the Glad Press'n Seal Wrap. Check out my photos below!
This chicken has been in my freezer for about 2 months. I bought a bunch of chicken when my local store was having a great sale. It looks the same as the day that I put it in the freezer.
Glad makes the Press'n Seal Freezer Wrap and the Press'n Seal Wrap. I have used both of these. The freezer style is a little stronger but you can use the regular Glad Press'n Seal Wrap in the freezer. That is actually what I have used in the photos above. The cost at my store is $2.89 per package (840 feet).
• Here a couple of tips for using the Press'n Seal Wrap:
Separating your pieces of meat (as shown with chicken) seals each piece individually.
• If you separate your pieces of meat, you can just remove the package and cut off the correct portion size since each piece is sealed individually. This works great with hamburger patties.
Check for the Glad Press'n Seal Wrap at your local store. You can also find the Glad Press'n Seal Wrap and the Glad Press'n Seal Freezer Wrap on Amazon.
