I got the mid sized Vakupaxs... I'm seriously, serioulsy impressed. For it's power and size it about 1/2 to 1/3 of the cost of most of the alternatives here in the UK. For anyone in the market for a chamber, it's worth considering. Although I had to get the manual translated from German (fortunately my mum is a translator... said she would have charged me £600 if I was a customer...)
I've been vac packing literally everything. Highlight is certainly liquids; a revelation after using a foodsaver for so long. Also successfully packaged my house mate's wallet, keys, shoes and phone :D
So.... This leads me onto asking for ideas on instant vacuum pickles. I've seen a few recipes from Polyscience, MC, chefsteps and seattle food geek, but they're all fairly similar. I'm just wondering if anyone has come up with some really imaginative flavour combos? I'm going be doing some trials and adding pics soon.
Any cunning ideas? I'm willing to try anything!
