Instant Power Sealer is a compact device that's been designed to suck the air out of special zipper-lock bags so you can keep food fresh for up to five times longer than usual. Each sealer, which will rest on your table or countertop, comes with four quart-sized bags and two gallon-sized bags that can be filled with meat, cheese, fruits, vegetables and more. With less air present in the zipper-lock bags than there normally would be, this will give mold and freezer burn less of an opportunity to develop around the food.
The cost of Instant Power Sealer is $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Instant Power Sealer at the discounted price of only $9.99 for a total price of $35.97.

To get started with this device, grab one of the included bags and place a food item or group of items that you want to freeze, refrigerate or store in a cupboard for later inside. You could even store away an entire plate in one of these bags if you'd like. If you want to end up sealing individual portions of food on their own, space the food items out in your bag so they're not touching.
Next, place your bag down on a table or counter and find its one-way valve, which will be marked with a blue circle. It's best if you turn your bag so that the valve is on the side closest to you. Following that, pick up your Instant Power Sealer and place it on top of the valve. Make sure it's sitting right-side up so you can read the logo, and that the circular part on the bottom is sitting directly on top of the valve.
To suck the air out of your bag, press the oval-shaped gray power button on the front of your Instant Power Sealer and allow it to do its work. You'll notice that it's sucking the air out of your bag at every second, and it'll automatically turn off after a certain number of seconds without any further action from you. If you need to hang on to your device so it doesn't jiggle, always place your hand near the top instead of the bottom.
Once your device has turned itself off, attach one of the included white sealing clips to the zipper-lock of the bag it's been working on and slide it to the opposite side to seal it. Then store the bag of food away in your freezer, your refrigerator, a cupboard or another place of your choice.
Each Instant Power Sealer is just a bit bigger than a coffee mug, so most users will be able to carry theirs around their kitchen without experiencing fatigue. Each one won't take up much space on a countertop or kitchen table, nor will it take up more than several inches of space if you need to transport it somewhere in your vehicle. However, the power button on the front of each device is quite conspicuous, so you probably won't need to examine yours for more than a few seconds before figuring out how to turn it on.
The six bags in two different sizes that come with each device are strong enough to hold up to 10 pounds of food without breaking, and you'll be able to use them again and again. If one gets dirty, you can simply rinse it out in your sink with soap and water in order to remove any food residue before the next use. You'll also receive six small white sealing clips that will help you create an airtight seal on any of the bags, which are all transparent in nature.
The Instant Power Sealer makes some noise while it's sucking the air out of a particular bag, but it's fairly quiet in comparison to some household appliances like blenders or hand-held vacuum cleaners. When you take into account that it'll only run for a few seconds at a time, your device probably won't end up giving you a headache or scaring your kids or pets.
The suctioning action of this device is powerful enough to suck all the air out of any of the included bags in seconds but gentle enough that it won't ruin delicate foods. As a result, you'll be able to use it to seal virtually any type of food, including small nuts, grapes or pieces of loose cereal, without worrying about the food getting damaged.
As mentioned, you can seal individual portions of certain foods such as meat or fish with your Instant Power Sealer. To do so, just make sure there's space between each piece of food after all pieces have been inserted in the appropriate bag. Due to this type of spacing, your device will suck out the air around each individual piece of meat or fish, which will effectively divide the pieces for freezing purposes. No pieces with different flavors will rub up against each other, and you'll be able to pull one piece out quickly when you need it.
If you've got other zipper-lock bags, aside from the ones that come with this device, you won't be able to use them with your Instant Power Sealer. Other bags do not contain the one-way valve that the sealer needs to come in contact with in order to remove air from a bag. Furthermore, if your bags ever end up getting damaged, after a number of years of use, it appears that you can't order a new set of bags on its own. You might have to get an entire new sealer in order to get more bags.
Since there's no electrical cord connected to each sealing device, but each one appears to have a motor, you'll likely need batteries to run one. Nowhere is it stated that any Instant Power Sealer comes with batteries, so you'll probably need to obtain your first set and any subsequent sets on your own.
While using one of these devices, you must always keep your hands away from the bottom, and especially the underside, where the sealing mechanism is located. Otherwise, you could end up cutting one or more fingers. When you're carrying your device, do so by wrapping one hand around its top or its middle as if it were a coffee mug.
Kids who have reached elementary-school age may want to try out one of these devices, but they should always be supervised closely by an adult while they're using one. After they're done, you should always put your device away and out of their reach so they can't access it when you're not around.
Without an Instant Power Sealer, you might end up throwing away a lot of food because it's moldy, rotten, freezer-burned or otherwise damaged. Once you start using one of these tools, though, your food may last five times longer than it normally would, so that means you won't have to obtain nearly as much replacement food.
