I put some slamon filets in a food saver bag, and tossed it into the refrigerator on Friday night (no marinade or anything). It's been in teh refrigerator since then. Is it still good to use tonight?

Julia, it'll be good to use a month from now!! :eek: As long as there is no air in there and you've got a tight seal, YES!! Actually, if it's longer than a week or two I'd freeze it, then it'll last for months and months!!
If you'd put those fillets in a Zippie bag, those fish would be growing beards by now, but since you vac-packed them, they should be fine! :)

Thanks. I already threw out chicken breasts like that, but now I know.
The funny thing - my DH teased me for weeks about buying the food saver. After this weekend, he's a total convert, and has been using it himself.

My DH and the two "big kids" (6 and 8) all want to have turns using our new toy - I mean Food Saver! :)
I think I'll have to clear out the freezer a bit before I go to Costco. Then, watch out! :)
Boy, was I surprised to see what that machine did to my fresh muffins - I even froze them for two hours before trying to seal them in a bag...shrink city! It was funny-except I wasn't happy about seeing the muffins turn into marbles! I quickly snipped the bag, and they almost regained their former glorious shapes! Live and learn...
Jewel, do you have any other warnings to pass on from your experiments, so I can be prepared? I'd appreciate your advice!

LOL, I did the same thing with some burger buns! We used them anyway, but they sure had a funny shape. Another one to be careful with is pasta. I used half a bag of pasta and decided the use the Food Saver on the rest. I could hear that pasta snapping for several minutes after I was through. It was almost worth it for the laugh we all had listening to that pasta pop like popcorn.
