The Reynolds Handi-Vac is a $10 vacuum sealing device that’s really impressing Chowhounds. It works with special zip-top bags that come in quart and gallon sizes, and it’s small enough to fit in a kitchen utility drawer. The bags hold their vacuum seal well: Mother of four sealed up an avocado half, and a week later it was still bright green and in great shape; other produce has fared equally well. The Handi-Vac is so convenient for resealing bags (even after you remove a portion of something) that hounds who own expensive, heavier-duty systems are embracing it for everyday use and short-term freezer storage.
