    Interesting thread. One I was specifically looking for.
    My wife and I recently bought a Marinade Express.
    I am completely, totally impressed with it.
    An apple based marinade on a lowly pork loin completely brings the loin into a new realm of flavor and moistness.
    My experience with injecting has always resulted in a ho-hum flavor.
    30 minutes in this tumbling marinader seems to draw the marinade in much better than I could ever get an injection in.
    We do chicken thighs and breast often with equally good results.
    Quick edit to add.
    We do a lot of beef jerky.
    Slice the meat then 20 minutes in the tumbler, and it results in the most completely saturated jerky we have ever made. Definitely a 2 thumbs up for jerky.
    It would be interesting to see some more feed back on these machines.

    ​Marauderer Jon Solberg Strat50 , actually Barry, I think you're headed in the right direction. If the tumbler works for you, I'm going to figure out how to do the job in my clothes dryer, of course, running on air dry...no heat and a really rugged vacuum packer. It might be funny! Let us know how this develops.

    At the same time you vacuum your floors. I wonder if it works with a Flowbee?

    I'm not much of a gadget kind of guy, so I tend to agree with the others in that I would pass on this device. Injecting is much more efficient. The food product industry agrees and acts accordingly. The 75-100 bucks you save would go a long way in injectors and product to flavor your food. Just my two cents worth.

    From Dr. Blonder: (http://amazingribs.com/recipes/rubs_...ent-1368222523)

    "Does not help very much- there is very little air in raw meat, so the vacuum has nothing to "draw" out to be replaced by marinade.
    BUT, you can improve cooked meat by resting in a vacuum bag along with a bit of jus, and it will absorb flavor. Cooking creates fissures and pockets as the fat renders and moisture evaporates."

    The negative pressure likely rips tissue apart allowing marinade to slip in, sort of like injecting but more uniform

    Interesting. Based on what we know of the principles of marinades and how meat has too tiny of pores for flavor molecules to travel into (salt being the exception) I wonder why this "marinades in minutes instead of hours"?

    I don't have one, but I do know MH is not a fan.
    "I do not recommend vacuum marinators




    There are several companies that make devices in which you place the food and then create a vacuum. In theory the vacuum sucks the marinade in. I do not recommend them because the vacuum can also suck in microbes. If you don't cook the food up to about 165°F, well past well done, you run the risk of a tummy ache, or much worse.
