[QUOTE=anon54]Hi netti4263!I have had a foodsaver for years now.The best way to preserve cereals is in jars.Any jars that have the pop up button.Just make sure when you open one of these jars is not to crimp the sides.I also suggest that you save jars such as pasta sauce etc.Sanatize them for later use.
 
 
Are you just storing in the pop top jars such as pasta jars or can you vacuum seal them as well?

July, yes I use pasta jars and yes you can vacuum seal them as well. I either use the universal jar sealer, pump'seal or the food saver jar sealer.Sometimes I don't even bother to vacuum seal the jars, depends on how lazy I feel.lol Hope this helps. Take care

Sorry another question I have the food save jar sealer and it does not fit snug on the pop top jar like it does on the wide mouth canning jar so how do I seal the pop top jar.
thanks

July, I'm sorry I misunderstood your question.I think a pump n' seal would work best.I do own one and have had it for years. I have no reservations in recommending it to you. It just may be a boon if we lose power when tshtf! I'd also like to suggest you check out the Foodsaver group at yahoo, they have great tips! Hope this helps.

Ok...couple o' silly questions...
 
I am new to the whole vacuum sealing of food concept..;)
 
If I were to purchase a food sealer...which would you recommend?
How expensive are the bags?
 
Regarding the universal jar sealer (great concept by the way)....don't you have to cover the "punched hole" in the jar lid once you are through removing the oxygen?  Isn't there a remaining hole in the top....or does it seal somehow?
 
Thanks for any info you can share~ JB

mamasjob, with respect to the universal jar sealer, yes you have to make a small puncture on the jar lid.You then seal it with a check valve exactly like the ones on the pump n' seal. I use a Tilia brand and frankly my life isn't worth living without it lol! As for bag sources I recommend the Yahoo group FoodSaver, they always have links for cheap bag material. Hopes this helps you out!

Storage space is an issue with me and I am down looking desperately for space.  Is there any reason why I can't take the pudding & pie filling out of its box and little waxy sealed bag-thingy and use my vacuum sealer to repackage just the powder?  Because I am trying to lose weight and sometimes only something sweet will do, I often mix non-fat dry milk and a hefty tablespoon of non-fat dry pudding & pie filling.  It is sort of like a milkshake if you let it sit for a about five minutes in the frig.  I use a lot of it and will continue to during a pandemic but those darned boxes are two times the size they need to be plus it would be trash I would have to get rid of later. They would be in a very dark location and cool.  I must have a hundred of those boxes and if I opened say 10 chocolates and put it all in one bag, and then 10 vanillas and so on and so on making sure that the bags all contain product with the same expiration dates would that be okay?

Cabinlass:No reason why you can't do that.I do something similar with my Hamburger Helper.I package the noodles that take roughly the same amount of time to cook together with the little packets of sauce and seasonings.I use the manual seal button and I'm good to go.

I supposed that you can use foodsaver....and can preserve the food....I have a food-saver that I could not live without. I rarely use it to vacuum seal items, however, I ALWAYS use it to reseal potato chip bags, frozen food bags, etc...for more detail...
