Fast Flavor

Marinating is a great way to add flavor to your favorite food. Plus it’s thrifty, since you can choose less expensive cuts of meat without sacrificing taste. The only downside is that marinating has traditionally required advanced planning. And if you’re like us, the dinner menu is often decided minutes before mealtime, not days in advance. With today’s Grommet you can speed up the process and enjoy flavorful meat, fish, chicken and vegetables in the amount of time it takes to heat up the grill. Simply add your food and sauce to the Instant Marinater dish, then pump out the air to create a vacuum. The vacuum opens up the pores and fibers of the food, allowing the marinade to penetrate quickly. The Instant Marinater also does double-duty as a storage container. If you pump out the air that makes food go stale, your cookies and crackers will stay fresh even in wet weather. The inventor of the Instant Marinater is Bernd Schneider, whose first product was a revolutionary device he developed to preserve opened bottles of wine. Vacu Vin also responsible for the handy pineapple slicer we featured earlier this year. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next.

    Hi everyone! I represent International Innovation Company USA- a company that features exciting, innovative items that will make your life easier!

    Today we are featuring our Instant Marinater. Our Instant Marinater is one of our best selling items! Simply put desired meat, fish, or veggies into the container with your favorite seasonings and/or marinade, extract the air using the vacuum pump included, let sit for as little as 10 minutes and you've got tender, flavorful food! The vacuum created within the container opens the pores of the food while allowing the seasoning and/or marinade to soak deeply into the food fibers creating intense flavor!

    I look forward to hearing your comments and answering any questions you may have!

    I love this item! It works great when you decide at this last minute to cook something that needs marinating first. Also, it is a bonus that you can use this for food storage, it is not just for grilling out.

    I've used the Vacu Vin wine system for years. I'll have to try this. Concept of "opening up the pores" makes good sense.

    Last night, my husband and I gave this VacuVin marinater to a friend who cooks a lot (birthday gift). He is very skeptical about this product, but he accepted my challenge to use it and report back here. Stay tuned. I KNOW he will be pleasantly surprised, since he cooks a lot on busy week nights, it will become a go-to tool.

    Regarding the Instant Marinater, I've used it about 10 times with good success however I just pulled it out of the cabinet to use again to find that the lid has a crack from the lip to the center. Since I am the only user, I am perplexed. Has anyone had their Marinater cover crack? I have contacted Vacu Vin as I don't see any warranty information that would normally come with a product. It cost me $40 USD so I am not ready to throw everything away.

    @Robin - that is very odd. It is not a problem that we are aware of. Hopefully VacuVin will be able to help solve this mystery for you!
