How can I clean the machines after their use?

The machines must be cleaned with a soft cloth soaked with water and a neutral detergent. Avoid using products that can abrade or damage the machine surface. Do not use water directly on the machine because there is the risk that it enters in the internal parts of the device, causing damages.

If I use the machine seldom, may I follow some particular steps for the maintenance?

Only for the chamber machines it is recommended to proceed with the heating and cleaning operation (“gastro/pump” button, see manual) in order to heat and clean the pump if the machines has not been used for some months.

After having put a food under vacuum, can I preserve it in the freezer?

Of course. The preservation under vacuum in freezer avoids the creation of ice in the bag and the loss of the product nutritive substances when defrosted.

With the preservation under vacuum does the preservation time increase or it remains the same?

The preservation under vacuum, both in the fridge and freezer, increases the life cycle of the product compared to the natural preservation. This time increase depends on the type of product, on its state (fresh, cooked, etc) and on its quality.

Which kind of food is it possible to vacuum pack?

It is possible to preserve any kind of food except foods that tend to ferment in the absence of oxygen (such as potatoes, avocado, etc.) provided it is not warmer than 25°C, otherwise steam could weaken the sealing and enter into the pump, by damaging oil. Always assure that the sealing part of the bag is perfectly dry before proceeding with the vacuum cycle.

Which kind of food is it possible to sous-vide cook?

It is possible to cook any kind of food, although meat (poultry, beef, veal, pork…) and fish (salmon, tuna, halibut…) enhance at best their nutritional properties and their flavors through this innovative low temperature cooking technique.

Veggies, fruit and even eggs might be cooked sous-vide with excellent results.

Sauces – both for salted and sweet meals – are deliciously realized through the sous- vide cooking, by becoming extremely creamy and wisely mixing their single ingredients within the pouch.

How longer can food last once it is vacuumed?

Thanks to the air extraction and the total absence of oxygen into the pouch, the bacteria proliferation is strongly limited, if not even avoided through the vacuum packaging.

Therefore the shelf-life of vacuumed food can be extended up to its double, or even three time longer than standard packaging.  This general rule is valid only when handling fresh food and not after food has been in touch with open air contamination.
