Rated 3 out of 5Â by Maddlyn The product is well made
This product is well made but it was not what I was looking for. I already had a quick marinator. But I have been looking for one that you could put in the dishwasher. Under the product specs it states it is dishwasher safe - so I thought bonus I am going to get this one. When I opened the package in the instructions it is only the bottom of the marinator that is dishwasher safe - you still have to hand wash the top. Which to me defeats the purpose of what I was looking for. So I have returned it. Like I said I already have one which I love but I was just looking for the added feature of dishwasher safe. Anyone that doesn't have the marinator along with the food saver I would highly recommend it. We marinate chicken/steak/beef in about 20 to 30 minutes and it is awesome.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by jackie 278 Liked the older model better
I with they would just sell the TOPS instead of the whole unit over and over cuz the lid is what goes bad. I liked the old model better, it was oval, had bumps on the bottom to lift food and was smaller. This one is so big (ck size) the marinade better be 2x what you usually make. I had trouble getting a good seal the first 2 times because now there are 2 different vacuum settings depending on which machine you have. I wish I had known NOT to put lid in d/w so I still had the old one. However, the very clear acrylic is nice. And if I put enough marinade in, it does the job just like the old one.

If you are at all like me, remembering to defrost the meat the night before is hard enough, never mind remembering to defrost it with enough time to marinate it as well. That's why this is the best item to purchase as an accessory to your Food Saver. You can come home from work, defrost meat in some tempid water in a bowl and then put it in the marinator with your favorite marinade. 30-minutes later, its good to go for cooking on the grill, stove, or in the oven and before you know it, dinner is ready. Don't wait, get yours today.
