7 Alternatives to Vacuum Sealing Jars

Dehydrated food in jars with a Foodsaver Vacuum Saler Jar Attachment on a wooden surface

Not able to find Foodsaver Vacuum Sealing Jar Attachments? Here are some alternatives to vacuum sealing jars for your long term storage. And the first one just might surprise you 🙂

Dehydrated food in jars with a Foodsaver Vacuum Saler Jar Attachment on a wooden surface

Have you been looking for the Foodsaver jar attachments to vacuum seal your canning jars for long-term storage and have run into "Currently not available" or "sold out" at every turn?

Never fear. While Foodsaver has told me that they have no idea when new product will be arriving, there are good alternatives that you can use to put your dehydrated foods and dry goods in storage, and even while still using your canning jars, or other containers.

When I contacted Foodsaver's media department, their help line, and their message board, the same message rang clear through all three folks:

It's not that we're not selling them any longer, it's that we just do not have any definite time when stock will become available again.

Alternatives to Vacuum Sealing Jars without a Foodsaver Jar Sealer

Airtight Container

Vacuum sealing is not necessary for the long-term storage of dehydrated foods.

Yes, I said it! Vacuum sealing canning jars is a benefit to long-term storage, but it is not mandatory. A good airtight container is all you need.

You can use

  • Commercial food product jars - think spaghetti sauce, pickles, salsa,
  • Canning jars
  • Plastic containers such as Rubbermaid, Sterlite, Progressive, Tupperware, etc. just make sure that when squeezed, you don't hear or feel air escaping from the container - because then it is not airtight.

And also make sure the container that you're putting your food into is equal in volume to the amount of food you're storing. Don't put a cup of rice into a container meant for 8 cups. That extra air can reduce the shelf-life of that rice.

Foodsaver Vacuum Bags

Vacuum sealing bags, whether from Foodsaver or another brand are great for long-term storage of smaller quantities of food.

The problem with some dry goods such as rice, or dehydrated foods, is that those foods have sharp, pointy edges that can put micro holes in your bags that you never see. Then, when you get the bag, you don't understand why the bags are bloated or the food is soft or even molded.

So in order to use vacuum sealing bags for dehydrated foods, try these methods to help protect and double-bag. Put your food into one of these bags or wrap in one of these components and then vacuum seal the whole thing in your vacuum sealer bags:

  • Wrap in parchment paper
  • Double bag with older vacuum sealer bags for repurposing
  • Use paper bags
  • Wrap in paper towels
  • Use a zipper top bag

Remember that these are not rodent-proof, but definitely worth doing, especially if you need to store smaller quantities!

Mylar Bags

Mylar bags are classic for long-term storage and for hiking/camping meals. They can be a perfect alternative to keeping food for long-term storage in your pantry, in an emergency bag for your car, etc.

These are basically a clear plastic bag that has been fused with a foil or other metallic coating that stops light from getting into a properly sealed bag.

They can be closed with the heat sealing function of a vacuum sealer, a straight iron, or a clothes iron. Once sealed, they stop air from entering the bag as well. They become sealed and protect your food even better than a mason jar.

To vacuum seal them, simply throw in an O2 absorber, seal the bag quickly, and you have airtight storage from within. You can use this handy, printable chart to determine the right amount of O2 absorbers you need.

There are zippered mylar pouches that are good to store in as well, though they are air permeable over time, so you'll need to be careful for that.

Vacuum Canister

Foodsaver made vacuum chambers for their machines that are no longer in production and can be quite expensive in the States, though it seems are easily available in the UK.

You may be able to find them at thrift stores, from friends (put the word out in a local Facebook group for someone looking to declutter!), or even on Ebay, but be sure not to pay the outrageous prices being asked for them now.

A vacuum sealing canister works by placing your jar with a lid inside the canister, closing the canister and running your vacuum seal machine with it. The vacuum created inside the canister is also being created inside your jar. Once the process is finished, open the canister and your jar is still sealed!

There are some alternatives to the Foodsaver version, though I have not used them, yet. If you have, I'd love to hear your experiences with them in the comments! Let us know!

DIY Vacuum Canister

Vacuum canisters can be easily made from PVC piping components that you can get from any DIY store that sells them in the plumbing section.

It works much the same way as the Foodsaver canisters do, and you can make it as large or as small as you need! Here are plans to build your own DIY Vacuum Canister.

Other alternatives to the Foodsaver Jar Attachments?

  • Fermenting Jars
  • All-in-one systems that have a hand-pumped vacuum element and each jar has a specialized lid
  • Containers that go along with those hand-pump systems.

While they may work, I don't recommend them unless you have no other options, and vacuum sealing is that important to you.

But please, let me reiterate - while it can be helpful, it's not necessary. Moisture is really a bigger issue for storage where dehydrated foods are concerned - so protect for that first and foremost.

Is Oven Canning is not a Safe Alternative for Vacuum Sealing Jars

Oven canning (also misnamed as Dry Canning) is not an approved or safe method for food preservation.

  • The jars were not created for dry heat. The jar manufacturers have said that they aren't made for that heat, which can cause microfractures that promote jar breakage.
  • Heat promotes moisture release. Inside of an airtight jar, that moisture doesn't reabsorb evenly, leaving the possibility of moisture pockets that can later form mold.
  • Condensation caused from the cooling affect inside the jars also becomes problematic, especially in this 'sealed' environment.
  • This introduction of moisture into a low-oxygen environment, creates the perfect growing medium for any mold spores that could be on your foods if not properly cleaned.

I try to go with reusable  over disposables options as much as I can with the exception of my freezer. After trying and failing - often spectacularly! -  every method I could think of to stop freezer burn, I finally gave in and bought this Foodsaver vacuum sealer. The Foodsaver quickly paid for itself in the amount of food I didn’t have to toss or try to salvage due to freezer burn or spoilage.  In fact, I like and rely on it so much I have no problem recommend it to you (and using my affiliate link) as a way to keep frozen and dry good fresh. (Disclosure: I am including affiliate links in this post for your convenience.)

Yes, I said dry goods. You can vacuum seal grains, spices, coffee, and such in mason and recycled glass jars you might already have at home. I particularly like to vacuum seal the garden vegetables and herbs I dry in my dehydrator (this is the exact dehydrator I have and I love it!)to keep the flavor from expiring until I remember I have them in the back of my cupboard.

Yes, I tried sucking the air out of the bag with a straw. It didn't work.
Mason jars are easy to vacuum seal but you will need to buy a Foodsaver wide mouth or regular mouth mason jar attachment here.You will also need a mason jar and metal lid. You don’t need a mason jar canning ring but I usually screw it onto my jars after I seal them to hold a paper jar label in place.  Without jar labels I would be lost.

It’s super easy to seal a mason jar with a Foodsaver:

1.Put the food item in the mason jar. You may want to cover find powders and grains with a clean coffee filter or piece of paper towel to keep the vacuum hose from clogging.


2.Put the metal lid on the jar without the metal canning ring.




3.Attach the mason jar attachment to the hose on your Foodsaver.


4.Put the jar sealer firmly over the top of the mason jar.

Pin this post to your Pinterest boards  for later and to share it with your friends!


5.Press the locking lever on the side of the Foodsaver.


6.Press the Canisterbutton on the Foodsaver. It will automatically shut off when the jar is completely sealed.

That’s it!

If your mason jar didn’t seal the first time, here’s a quick troubleshooting guide


1.Check to see if the rubber gasket inside the jar sealer attachment is flat or bend. Remove the gasket, fluff it wit your fingers and try again.


Sometimes this guy folds or bends when you are putting on top of your jars



2.You may have too much empty space inside your glass jar. Either pour the contents into a smaller mason jar or you can add a clean paper towel to the jar to fill the large head space.


3.Check to see if the lid is correctly lined up on the top of the jar.


4.There might be a small bend in the metal jar lid. Put a second metal canning lid on top of the first canning lid and try vacuuming sealing the jar  again.


If you don't have extra lids you can buy metal Mason jar canning lids here



5.The jar sealer attachment may not be firmly seated on the jar before you tried vacuum sealing.

You can also vacuum seal your own empty glass jars for food storage as long as you have the original undamaged lid for the repurposed jar and oneFoodsaver canister like this one.


How to Vacuum Seal a glass jar with a Foodsaver:

1.Put your food items in the empty glass jar and screw the metal lid onto the jar.

2.Put the glass jar inside the appropriate size Food Saver vacuum consider and attach the lid.

3.Attach the vacuum sealer hose to the canister and Foodsaver port.



Recycled food storage!


4. Press the locking lever on the side of the Foodsaver.


5.Press the Canisterbutton on the Foodsaver. It will automatically shut off when the jar seals with a pop!

7 Vacuum Sealer With Jar Attachment (Hose for Sealing Jars) Comparison Chart

Why Should We Vacuum Seal Mason Jars?

Vacuum Sealing Mason Jars provides various benefits.

For one vacuum sealing mason jars will offer longer-term storage of food that are affected by air and moisture such as dehydrated foods and dry goods such as pasta, dehydrated potatoes, and dried fruits and vegetables.

Vacuum sealing also prolongs the food’s lifespan because it prevents any kind of moisture and oxygen from entering the mason jar which are the main culprit that can break down food over time.

How Can We Vacuum Seal Mason Jars?

Step 1 – Quickly rinse and dry the mason jar before use.

Step 2 – Fill your mason jar leaving at least 1 inch from the top of the rim.

Step 3 – Place the mason jar lid on top and make sure it is secure and tight.

Step 4 – Now place the mason jar sealer on top of the mason jar lid, firmly to snap it in place. (note: make sure that the jar sealer covers the entire lid)

Step 5 – Insert the hose located on top of the jar sealer

Step 6 – Make sure your accessory hose is attached to the vacuum sealer and is ready to seal.

Step 7: – Turn on your vacuum sealer and press the accessory feature button. You should begin to see the mason jar being sealed.

Step 8 – After the mason jar has gone through the complete vacuum sealing process. Simply remove the hose from the mason jar sealer.

Step 9 – Remove the mason jar sealer itself.

Step 10 – Put your screw on to the mason jar and there you go; you have sealed in freshness!

How To Vacuum Seal a Mason Jar - FoodSaver®

Long gone are the days when the only way to store food was in refrigerators, wrapped in foil or wax paper in order to prevent it spoiling.

​Such storage techniques would often prove to be less than economical and could be time-consuming. And if you did not take those measures, the refrigerated food would soon​ perish and become inedible.

​Technological advancements in food storage are no longer the preserve of commercial enterprises and are now coming within reach of the domestic kitchen.

Vacuum sealers are one of those ingenious technological innovations that allow you to store your food effectively in a vacuum bag or jar ​thus preventing freezer burn or spoilage. The appliance seals your food ​in a bag in its entirety. ​This prevents the food being exposed to the air and the pathogens it carries.

In this article, we will be looking at several such vacuum sealers​ that we consider the best, as well as detailing their features.

BUYER’S GUIDE

There are a few factors that need to be considered before buying a vacuum sealer for your home. These are as follows:

Overheating

Before making your purchase, make sure that the vacuum sealer you have your eyes set on is able to function continuously without the machine overheating.

Portability

Vacuum sealers come in a variety of sizes. Look for one which you can easily carry around to perform jar or bag sealing functions inside or outside your kitchen.

Size

For home use, a compact-sized sealer works well as it prevents kitchen clutter and offers more room on your kitchen counter.

Control system

Thoroughly check all the modes and operations your sealer offers such as dry/wet vacuum sealing options as well as automated functionalities.

Mason jars and bottle sealers

Many vacuum sealers have attachments that are used to help seal mason jars and bottles. If you require the need to seal moist or liquid food make sure your sealer comes with this functionality and its appropriate attachments.

Benefits of Using Vacuum sealers

Oxygen exposure damages food when it has been stored for quite some time. The damage slowly tampers with its appearance and flavor, and within days the food is all rotten and spoiled.

Vacuum sealers help remove air from the equation when it comes to increasing the shelf-life of both solid and liquid food. Sucking out air from the bag and then having the bag heat sealed takes no more than a few seconds but results in months and even years of safely stored food that you can simply reheat whenever your heart desires.

Vacuum sealers can also help store solid and liquid food in mason jars. The best vacuum sealers often come with a handheld attachment that sucks out all the air from the jars before sealing them to greatly improve shelf-life.

Vacuum sealing your leftovers is also a much healthier alternative than other conventional methods of food storage.

F.A.Q.

What purpose does a vacuum sealer serve?

A vacuum sealer is used to increase the lifespan of food items by removing oxygen from the storage bags or jars, and resultantly inhibiting the bacterial growth that rots food.

How long can an airtight vacuum sealer prevent food from being spoiled?

The average lifespan of vacuum-sealed food increases by three to five times as compared to conventional methods of food storage. Some foods can be stored for years without compromising their texture or taste.

Can a vacuum sealer work on things other than food?

Its primary purpose is to seal food; however, it can be used in the packaging of other retail products that can benefit from air being removed such as cigars and even leather bags.

FINAL VERDICT

A vacuum sealer can be instrumental in helping you store more homemade food in a safe and easy manner. The packing of lunches, marinated meats, and even liquids has never been easier or more convenient thanks to this revolutionary packaging method.

Keep your homemade food tasting fresh and delicious for longer by investing in a vacuum sealer today!

Sealing jar sealer accessory vacuum

I have a hard time throwing out jars.

They are the perfect container for dry goods, for leftovers in the refrigerator, and of course for liquids. I'll buy a product in a glass jar before buying a similar product in a can or plastic jar.

Glass jars can be reused; cans cannot, and I prefer not to reuse plastic, so cans and plastic are both "garbage" that need to be disposed of.

And when your homestead doesn't come with curbside garbage pickup every week and recycling is pretty much unheard of in your neck of the woods, disposing of things is difficult.

In my childhood years, we spent summers walking along the edge of the 4-lane highway with a wagon, picking up glass bottles. When returned to the corner grocery store, we'd get 5¢ per bottle, enough to keep us in Pepsi and candy. But in this day and age of recycling awareness, glass isn't even recycled anymore.

So my kitchen is filled with jars: canning jars as well as reused jars from spaghetti sauce, mayonnaise jars, salsa jars and more.

Gallon-sized jars make great canisters for various flours and sugar. Half-gallon jars and smaller hold pasta and rice and other dry goods in my kitchen.

Reused jars from pasta sauce, salsa and so on are great for storing dehydrated foods such as chopped onions, peppers and sliced mushrooms.

There are several methods of vacuum sealing jars in this post, so keep reading to find one that works best for you!



For longer-term storage of dehydrated foods and dry goods such as pasta and rice, you can vacuum-seal reused jars to ensure freshness. Vacuum-sealing prolongs foods' storage life by eliminating oxygen that breaks down food over time.

The secret to using almost any jar in the kitchen? Using a FoodSaverappliance to vacuum seal the jars.

You can use canning (Mason) jars, but you can also re-use those spaghetti sauce and salsa jars too.

What can you store in vacuum-sealed jars?


Any food that you don't use often is a good candidate for vacuum-sealing, which will lengthen its storage life. If you buy a product in bulk, such as rice or popcorn, you can transfer a small amount to a smaller jar for convenient use and store the rest in larger jars that are vacuum-sealed.

For instance:

  • Dry goods such as rice, popcorn, pasta
  • Dehydrated foods
  • Freeze dried foods - when you open a #10 can, put the bulk of the product in large jars and vacuum-seal, and put a smaller amount in a jar for daily use
  • Bulk spices
  • Oatmeal
  • Powdered milk
  • Candy - buy candy on clearance after holidays and vacuum seal for later use

How to vacuum-seal a canning jar


Canning jars are sealed with the FoodSaver canning jar attachment. To use it, just place the flat lid on top of the jar - you don't need the ring to hold the lid on - then set the canning jar vacuum seal attachment on top, connect it to the hose attachment and press the "Start" button on the vacuum sealer appliance. (The hose attachment comes with the FoodSaver unit. If yours has been misplaced, you can order a new hose attachment here.)

There are two different canning jar sealers, one for regular mouth jarsand one for the wide mouth jars, so be sure to get the one that fits the jar size you use most. Or get both.
If the lid just won't seal, try these trouble-shooting tips:
  • Use two lids. I know, that sounds crazy. But it often works. Place the two lids, one on top of the other, on top of the jar and use the canning jar vacuum seal attachment as directed. When it's finished sucking out the air, remove the attachment. The top canning lid will come off, but the other will have sealed to the jar.
  • Or try a different lid.
  • If you still have problems, use a different canning jar. There might be an imperceptible dip in the rim of the jar.

How to vacuum seal non-canning jars


But did you know you can even vacuum-seal most reused jars? It requires a different method but it's just as simple. As long as the jar lid has a "rubber" ring inside, it can be vacuum-sealed. In the photo above, you can see the white ring inside the lid from this empty jar of yeast.

That rubber ring is the secret!
Some jars have a green ring, or a red ring. The color doesn't matter, as long as it has this rubber-like substance inside the lid.


How to vacuum-seal jars.

To seal this kind of jar, you'll need a FoodSaver vacuum canister set. The canisters come in a set of three, in various sizes.

Just tighten the lid on the jar and place it inside one of the canisters. I choose the canister closest in size to the jar so there is less air to suck out.
 

Attach the hose attachment that comes with your FoodSaver to the top of the canister. (If you've lost yours, you can reorder a hose attachment here.) Attach the other end of the hose to the FoodSaver unit and push the "Start" button. The vacuum sealer sucks the air from inside the jar and from inside the canister too.

When it's finished the unit will turn off. Just remove the hose attachment, press the button on top of the canister and open it. The jar inside is now sealed.

The last step is to label your jars; don't depend on your memory. Hot peppers can look identical to sweet peppers, and chopped red peppers look amazingly like chopped carrots. Trust me on that.


How to vacuum seal bottles and jars with plastic lids


You can't. I'm sorry.

Instead, use those jars with plastic lids to hold leftovers in the refrigerator. Soy sauce bottles with long necks and plastic caps make nice bud vases for flowers from your garden, or you can use them to hold vinegar, which doesn't need to be canned or preserved.

(If you'd like to try making your own vinegar for just pennies, get a free copy of my ebook by subscribing to The Acorn, my weekly-ish newsletter.)


What NOT to vacuum seal


Don't vacuum seal [or use an oxygen absorber] to preserve sugar or brown sugar. You'll end up with a solid brick of sugar.

Store your labeled, vacuum-sealed jars in a cool, dark place for maximum storage life.

A short FAQ



  • Vacuum-sealing is not meant to preserve fresh or cooked foods. It isn't a substitute for canning food in jars. It's a great way to extend the shelf life of dry foods (pasta, rice, dehydrated foods, etc.).

  • Can you vacuum seal gallon-sized jars? You'd need a canister that's large enough to hold a gallon-sized jar in order to use this method, and unfortunately I don't know of one that big. 

  • Alternative methods of vacuum sealing - if you don't have a FoodSaver unit, you can either use a Pump N Seal hand pump or add oxygen absorbers to your jar instead. These will absorb the oxygen inside the jar and create a vacuum seal.
