FoodSaver Quick Marinator

Marinate in Minutes

Impromptu shish-kabobs? Grilled steaks or barbecued ribs on a weeknight? Infuse food with flavor–from savory sauces to fresh herbs and spices–using the FoodSaver quick marinating canister.

The canister marinates food in 12 minutes or less instead of hours or overnight (like with other methods) thanks to its vacuum-sealing capabilities. The vacuum process opens the pores of food, allowing marinades to quickly and thoroughly penetrate deep into the food. Use the canister for marinating fish, poultry, tofu, vegetables, and much more.

Vacuum-Sealing Lid

The 2-1/4-quart square canister features a vacuum-sealing lid that works with any FoodSaver vacuum sealing system (machine not included). To vacuum seal, simply add food to the canister, secure the lid, and connect the lid’s removable hose to a FoodSaver vacuum sealing system. The vacuum sealer will automatically remove all the air inside the canister to create a stay-fresh, airtight seal.

Food-Storage Made Simple

In addition to marinating in a fraction of the time, the square canister can also be used for convenient food storage in the refrigerator or pantry. Sealing out air and moisture, the canister keeps a variety of foods fresh longer. Use it to store leftovers, keep desserts fresh, and prolong the shelf life of meat, cheese, breads, crackers, and more.

BPA-Free Material

Made of durable, BPA-free, polycarbonate plastic, the 2-1/4-quart, quick-marinating, square canister is both stain resistant and odor proof for reliable performance from one use to the next. The canister’s hard sides also makes it a smart choice for crush-free storage of delicate items, such as fresh strawberries or green salads, while its transparent sides allow for viewing contents at a glance. When finished, the square quick-marinating canister cleans up easily by hand or in the dishwasher.

Seems to work pretty good, August 15, 2003

As far as a vaccum canister it is far superior to round containers that are availible. The nice part being that it is a better shape for leaving in the fridge and stacking things on top of it.
The tray iself is made of some pretty thick plastic, its not a wimpy thing. Two parts, there is a lid with a silicone gasket around the edge and then the bowl of the tray. The bowl can be machine washed. There is a valve on the top with 3 settings. Open/Vaccum/Close. To use hook the accessory hose up to the valve in Vaccum mode and engage the pump. My 550 takes about 20+ seconds to evacuate the air out with about a pound of meat in the tray.
Its kind of weird but the top is held on by vaccum pressure so if the tray is emty and you grab the top only the lid comes off. But once the vaccum is pulled they are very well held together.
The tray can hold a good amount of food. I like the dimensions.
It is said that using vaccum makes things marinate faster. I’m not sure how true this is as I have never done a side by side comparison. But I have observed one thing. I was making some Jerky and I put one batch in the tray and vaccumed it and put the other batch in a non-vaccum container of similar dimensions. Left both overnight. In the morning when I went mix the meats up so it would marinate evenly all of the marinate in the vaccum tray was gone, it had been sucked up by the mean. The regular tray still had marinade in it. Same meat, same basic marinate (one had chili pepper for some extra heat). The strength of the marinade seem stronger in the finished product as well. So I guess there is something to it.
Either way when I marinate something for a short time I always use the vaccum (if for no other reason than to justify all the money I spent on it).

Not just good for marinading, May 13, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: FoodSaver Quick Marinator (Kitchen)
In addition to its excellent use for marinading meats, I find the square canister to be far more practical than the round containers for storage in the fridge because the shorter height can more easily fit on any shelf and can be stacked. It just makes a lot more sense than trying to fit round containers into a square hole.
It’s perfect for square or flat foods like sliced cold cuts, whole sandwiches, square cut cheese, hor d’oeuvres, leftover slices of pie, garlic bread, and pizza slices!
According to Tilia, the square base is the only container that is microwave safe for heating food (not for cooking), so it can be directly used for reheating soups, casseroles, leftovers, etc. without having to transfer to another dish that will need to be cleaned later.
Tossed salads can be prepared in advance, vacuum sealed to maintain freshness, and then conveniently eaten directly out of the container, unlike the round containers that are too deep to use in this way. With a small insulated cooler and a refreezable gel pack, you can easily take a fresh and healthy salad to work without finding a soggy wilted mess by lunch time.
Over the long term, a reusable container is more cost effective than the resealable bags.

A Must For Marinating!, September 1, 2002
By

This review is from: FoodSaver Quick Marinator (Kitchen)
I own a FoodSaver Vac 1050 and I also had an earlier FoodSaver model which died from years of constant use. I have had the square canister for a number of years, in fact I now have two of them. Suffice it to say, they are a great companion to the vacuum sealer. As the title of the review says, this product is great for marinating steaks, chops, poultry parts etc. Your marinade is able to penetrate deeper into the fiber of the meat and thus you get a much more tender cut.
But I also keep leftovers and cold cuts sealed in this unit. It stores quite well in the refrigerator due to its compact size. Food really does stay much fresher in a vaccuum packed container and the canister is more convenient than constantly sealing, cutting and re-sealing vaccuum bags.
Because you will be able to maintain the freshness of your food(s) longer, this unit will more than pay for itself in no time. If you own a FoodSaver, this is a perfect companion.
