Another type of vacuum sealing appliance is the vacuum marinate meat sealer. This appliance is ideal for storing either fresh or frozen marinated meats such as steak, chicken or pork. Foods that are perfect for the vacuum marinate meat sealer include items that require moist preparation time such as sausages, hotdogs or salmon, and most poultry products.
