That's why I focused on the vacuum storage home appliance "Multi Food Keeper VC100" sold by the American home appliance brand "BLACK + DECKER". It seems that you can store the ingredients in a vacuum state fresh and use them for short-time cooking. I'm using this brand's handy cleaner, so I decided to use it with the expectation of suction power.
◆ You can use it immediately after buying it! Set with dedicated container
The multi-food keeper is sold as a set with a special container, and the price is 20,000 yen (excluding tax). The set includes a food keeper body, a large container (1,200 ml, 1 piece), a small container (300 ml x 2 pieces), a vacuum pack bag (2 large pieces, 2 small pieces), a wine stopper (2 pieces), a charger, It is a main body stand.
The keeper body is a slim size that can be held with one hand. It comes with a stand and doesn't take up much space, so you can stand it within reach.
Various attachments can be attached to the suction port according to the container.
◆ Start vacuum life!
There was a Baumkuchen that had just been opened, so I'll try a vacuum-packed bag first. After putting the food in the bag, press the suction port as it is against the blue circle and switch on. The air inside gradually escapes with the humming noise, but there are some tips on how to hit it, so you may not get used to it at first. The guideline is until the air does not escape.
Next, use a container. This is easy to use even for the first time because it has a conical attachment attached to the tip of the keeper, and it is simply inserted into the hole in the lid and sucked.
When you put out the contents, if you remove the yellow lock at the top, you will hear a pleasant sound like "Push!", So you can see that it was in a vacuum state properly.
I usually pickle pickles, so I made it in a large container. Usually, the taste doesn't stain until the next day, but I'm surprised that it was eaten from the day when it was pickled, although it was still refreshing.
By the way, large containers are quite tall, so choose a place to put them in the refrigerator. Is it an overseas size ...? Personally, I want a medium size, large and small.
◆ Drinking wine remains fresh
A wine stopper is also included in the set. It prevents oxidation when the wine cannot be drunk all at once.
To use it, just insert it into a wine bottle and suck it out from the hole at the top ... However, there is no visible change here, so refer to the estimated time in the manual.
The multi-food keeper is also recommended for making sangria. It penetrates quickly, so you can rest assured even at a sudden party.
◆ Square container sold separately is convenient for mass preparation
In addition, a square container (3,000 yen) with a width of 24 cm is also sold as an optional item. I tried using it for coleslaw salad, but it was so big that my hands were numb before it was completely evacuated. It tastes good quickly, but it may be tiring to evacuate each time you open it.
◆ Good items for people who like cooking
Of course, you can store the ingredients in a vacuum while they are fresh, but it is also a nice point to be able to shorten the time for pickling and sangria cooking. According to the product information, the pressure inside the container after vacuuming is about half of the atmospheric pressure, even though it is so compact, and I am impressed with the suction power!
There are some points to be worried about, such as the guideline for the completion of suction and the operating noise, but once you get used to it, you will be able to get various tips. If you like cooking, it's a useful item to have, so you may want to give it as a gift.
