What Can Vacuum Sealing Be Used For?

Posted by Avid Armor on Jan 3rd 2020

If you’re new to the world of vacuum sealing, let us be the first to welcome you to the amazing benefits in store! Vacuum sealing is a method of packaging that involves removing all air from the package prior to sealing it shut, this keeps the contents inside from being exposed to any oxygen. There are machines that exist to vacuum seal foods and other contents for large commercial companies and restaurants, but at Avid Armor we want to bring that high quality vacuum sealing to your own home kitchen.

Vacuum Sealing Food

A vacuum sealer is great for so many uses in your home, and can be a wonderful time and money saver when utilized regularly. Many families enjoy buying foods and other goods at wholesale prices by buying in bulk at places like Costco or Sam’s Club. This is a great way to save money as well as trips to the grocery store, but the downside is that it can generate a lot of waste and therefore money if everything isn’t used or eaten in a timely manner. Vacuum sealing can help prevent this extra waste. Foods like meat, vegetables, fruit, and other perishables can be vacuum sealed and frozen for a fairly long period of time then thawed out and eaten or cooked. We’ve compiled a list below of foods that can be vacuum sealed.

  • Bananas
  • Avocados
  • Pre-made breakfasts (quiche, pancakes, omelettes, breakfast sandwiches, etc)
  • Chocolate
  • Coffee beans
  • Deli meats
  • Cookies
  • Dough
  • Fish
  • Asparagus
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Grains (rice, oats, etc)
  • Herbs
  • Jerky
  • Lettuce
  • Soup or chili
  • Raw meat (steak, ground beef, ham, bacon, etc)
  • Meatballs
  • Pastas (spaghetti, ravioli, pasta salad, etc)
  • Smoothies and other blends (baby foods, mashed potatoes, etc)
  • Yams/Potatoes

And so much more!

Vacuum Sealing Non-Food Items

Vacuum sealing is also great for sealing non-perishable items as well. Because vacuum sealing keeps contents secure from the elements (water, air, etc) it can be used in many ways to both protect items and also to store them safely. Electronics, holiday decorations, and other items are perfect for vacuum sealing. We put together a list of non-food items that can be vacuum sealed.

  • Keepsakes (photo albums, yearbooks, etc)
  • Electronics (phones, tablets, etc)
  • Jewelry
  • Game pieces (board game pieces can be vacuum sealed and placed inside the game box to avoid the mess of scattered and lost pieces)
  • Guns and ammunition
  • Important documents (birth certificates, social security cards, etc)
  • Car emergency kit
  • Cell phone water proofing (vacuum seal your phone to bring along with you when boating, rafting, etc)
  • Camping supplies (keep supplies safe from water and also vacuum seal food to avoid smells attracting animals)
  • Hunting/hiking gear (vacuum seal bulky supplies to make them smaller and easier to
  • transport)
  • Collectibles (trading cards, coins, valuables, etc)
  • Medicine
  • Survival packs
  • Leftover furniture/toy pieces (screws, nuts, bolts, etc)
