I just wanted to share a new tool I bought that has proven to keep my fondant as fresh as the day I made it. I recently invested in the Reynolds Handi-Vac Vacuum Sealer. I thought it might be an inexpensive way to keep my fondant from drying out because my ziploc bags weren't cutting it. I have to say it's been about 3 weeks since I made my batch of fondant and it is sitting on the counter as soft and pliable as if I just made it. The best part is the bag is like a ziploc bag, so when I need some fondant, I just open the bag, get what I need, and seal it back up and suck the air out of it.
OMG -- I LOVE my handi-vac. I used to use one of those food sealer machines, which are fine, but EXPENSIVE. These bags are much easier to clean and reuse.
Me too, Meeeee Tooooo! Love it! It is so handy, easy to use, and the bags are cheap to buy!
I've not heard of this product. Where do you get it and how much $$?
I bought mine at Wal-mart for about $6 or $7 for the vac, and the bags are about $3 (in quart and gallon sizes). They are found in the isle with the other zip-loc bags, plastic wraps, aluminum foil, wax paper, etc...
Thanks for the quick reply! I'll check it out next time I'm there.
Thanks for the heads up on this product!
