Friday Favorites: Glad Press'n Seal Wrap

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.

You know I think I have heard of this product, but I didn't give it much thought. This is really a great product, I am going to have to get some. I have the food saver sealer which is so time consuming and big to store. So I tend not to use it. This look quick and easy. I will definitely give it a try. Are there any coupons out there? :) This is my first time visiting, I clicked on one of you comments from cdm. Looks like I'll have to check your site out some more. Thanks for posting, I didn't know I needed this until I saw it. lol

Thanks for your comment!

The reasons that you mentioned are why I could never bring myself to purchase a foodsaver machine.

You will love this product! Unfortunately there are no coupons at the moment. But check out my new coupon email campaign. Glad is one of the companies that I am emailing to try to get coupons.

I'm glad I found your site. I LOVED the Press and Seal Freezer Wrap but can no longer find it anywhere!!! It worked great for COOKED meats (I freeze for my college son) and he swears they taste like just off the grill. So I guess I'll have to try the regular Press and Seal; good to know you find it works just as well as the Freezer one. Tks!
