BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The FoodSaver® brand, the authority and top-selling brand in vacuum sealing food preservation technology, today announces the launch of its NEW FoodSaver® FM5000 Series Food Preservation System. Developed with fan feedback in mind, the FoodSaver® brand has made the vacuum sealing process even easier while keeping its promise to keep food fresh for up to five times longer1 and help you save up to $2,700/year2.
"For loyal fans and new users alike, this new FoodSaver® FM5000 System is going to be a game changer," says Ofelia Silva, vice president of marketing for the FoodSaver® brand. "With new features like our vacuum view window, express bag maker and open roll storage, we're making it so simple and convenient for home cooks to get the most out of the food they grow, catch or buy."
This NEW FM5000 System incorporates new features like the Express Bag Maker that reduces vacuum sealing steps in half3 because it preseals a bag every time. It also has a new Vacuum View Window that gives the user better control during vacuum sealing allowing him/her to reduce the roll waste up to 30 percent3. In addition, it combines the 2-in-1 functionality that is unique to the FoodSaver® brand. It combines a powerful upright vacuum sealing system to vacuum seal bags for long-term storage in your freezer, with an integrated retractable handheld sealer to vacuum zipper bags and containers that keep refrigerated foods and pantry items fresh and delicious. The new system is also compatible with the new FoodSaver® Fresh Containers which are perfect for keeping refrigerated foods fresher longer. By taking air out and sealing flavor in, the NEW FoodSaver® FM5000 System invites people to create, seal and save meals, keeping food fresh longer and making busy lives a little bit easier.
"Whether a professional chef or home cook, we put our hearts into our food. But air is the enemy of freshness and primary cause of freezer burn and dehydration in foods stored in containers, causing food to lose flavor and nutrition over time," explains Silva. "The FoodSaver® FM5000 Series Food Preservation System combats all of that and has become one of the most important tools in my kitchen."
