The Foodshell FS-500 Portable Vacuum Food Sealer Reviewed

Foodshell Vacuum Food SealerWe have been offering a great selection of Minipack brand vacuum food sealers for some time now. This includes both chamber and external sealers. The only problem is that most of these sealers are designed for higher-volume packaging. We have just added a new vacuum food sealer, the Foodshell FS-500, designed for home use.

The new Foodshell FS-500 vacuum food sealer (found here) is a compact external-style sealer. It only weighs in at 4 pounds, so most people shouldn’t have a problem moving this around. It can be used on just about any table or countertop and is about as easy to use as a toaster oven.  The Foodshell FS-500 uses a “One Click” process leading to vacuuming and sealing automatically

The main purpose of the Foodshell FS-500 is to help people protect and preserve food. Simply place food in a bag, or use a vacuum sealer film roll (can use both) and let the Foodshell extract the air and seal the bag shut with a 2mm seal.

The Foodshell FS-500 measures in at 14.6″ x 6″ x 3.2″ and uses a split chamber, which makes cleaning easy.

The Foodshell has many benefits, including:

  • Keeps food fresh and healthy longer – It is well known that vacuum food sealers help keep food fresh for a longer period of time, sometimes by 3-4 times longer than non-vacuum sealed food. Vacuum sealing also helps prevent nutrient robbing oxidation.
  • Allows you to buy groceries in bulk – Sometimes an opportunity arises where you can buy food in bulk at a discounted price. The only downside is that it is hard to preserve excess food. The Foodshell FS-500 helps by preserving bulk food.
  • Makes it easy  to prepare meals in advance – Vacuum food sealers make it easy to create complete meals in advance for cooking later. Think of it as homemade TV dinners.
  • Helps reduce waste and spoilage – Less spoilage means less waste. Less waste means money-savings for you.
  • Preserves flavor, freshness, nutrients, and color of food – Vacuum-Sealed food maintains flavor, nutrients, freshness and more for a longer period of time versus non vacuum-sealed food.
  • Makes the best use of freezer space – As many of us know, freezers are often limited in space. The Foodshell FS-500 makes it easy to re-package food, making it easier to store in a freezer.

So there you have it. The new and compact Foodshell FS-500 vacuum food sealer. This should be a great option for home vacuum sealing and food preservation. You can view the Foodshell FS-500 vacuum food sealer here. You can find our entire selection of vacuum food sealers here.
