Ziploc bags are useful for short-term storage due to the ease of opening and closing the bags. The seal on these bags is not rigid enough for long-term food storage. A vacuum sealer is needed for long term food storage. But it is often bulky, expensive equipment that the average home cook wouldn’t normally have. Sure, if you’ve got the space and budget, by all means go for it, but they’re not necessary. That’s because you can simply use ZIPCCA DIY valve to turn a normal Ziplock bag into a vacuum packed bag.
Here are the simple steps:
STEP 1. Place your food in the bag
STEP 2. Install ZIPCCA DIY valve into the bag
STEP 3. Seal the bag and extract air out by the handheld pump
STEP 4. Your food is vacuum stored.
