I love food and love to cook — well for my family, not professionally. One of my biggest pet-peeves is coming home from a long day at work and wanting to make something tasty but either forgot to marinate the meat or simply don’t have the time to do so for a last minute meal.
What to do — sure I can throw my food into a bag of marinade and hope to get some flavor in about half-hour time frame or you could use VacuVin’s Instant Marinater and get that robust well marinated flavor in minutes.
The Instant Marinater works by using a vacuum seal which pulls the marinade and flavor into the meat. You see techniques like this use on the Iron Chef. I have seen the product at a few stores with some pretty good ratings and thought I should put it to the test.
As seen in my video below, I took the same type of chicken and the same marinade and placed on in a bag and one in the Instant Marinater. After trying to figure out how to properly remove the air from the marinater due to poor instructions — I placed both in the fridge for half-hour. I also cut some small incisions into the meat to allow for deeper flavor penetration too.
After a half-hour I removed the meat and grilled them exactly the same way. The result? — The chicken that was in the bag marinade had almost no flavor at all. But — the Instant Marinater’s chicken was very flavorful — if you were to do this for a longer period of time or even overnight this dish would be highly flavorful. The Instant Marinater also worked great us an Orange Spice Glaze on Salmon — it was extremely flavorful in only 20 minutes time.
Today I can say forget the traditional marinade in a plastic bag and every time I’m making a meal that requires some type of marinade I turn to the Instant Marinater.
After multiple test and food tasting VacuVin’s Instant Marinater Gets one Damn Good Review!
[learn_more caption=”From the Manufacturer”] The Instant Marinater is a unique dish that marinates and tenderizes meat, fish, chicken and vegetables in just minutes. It works by creating a vacuum which opens up the pores and fibers of the meat allowing for a deep and instant marinate! This process also tenderizes the food.
