Vacuum Marinator

Do you host a bunch of parties, barbecues, or a friendly get together? If so, you are going to want to impress your guests. Besides creating a friendly environment you will also want to serve amazing meals. If you are pressed for time then this could be difficult. If you have ever tried to prepare meat (chicken, steaks, etc) in a short period of time, you should know the end result. It is almost impossible to prepare meat in 30-60 minutes with any flavor in it. However, this is where the vacuum marinator comes in.

The beauty behind a vacuum marinator is that you can change the whole flavor of a meal. Instead of just grilling a chicken you can add some life to it. You are also able to choose from various flavors to marinade the food with. So, for instance, you could turn a boring grilled chicken into a cajun-flavored grilled chicken. The difference is major and will be very noticeable.

As you can see, there is a major difference and this would be a great kitchen appliance to use when in a rush.

Vacuum marinators are usually designed to hold roughly five pounds of food at once.

Both work just fine in a vacuum marinator so you can just go by your personal preference and not have to worry about ineffective marinating of the food.
