BOCA RATON, Fla. -- May 27, 2014

It’s springtime, a time for new beginnings, fresh starts and clean slates –
especially in the home – as homemakers take stock of their surroundings, clean
up, organize, and get rid of the old while inviting in the new. In a move to
inspire consumers to organize their kitchens, from refrigerator to pantry (and
save money too), the FoodSaver® Brand is challenging consumers to share the
creative ways they use the system to store and organize kitchen necessities to
de-clutter their lives.

The FoodSaver® Brand is making spring cleaning fun and interesting this year
with its Spring Cleaning Challenge, just launched on its Facebook page! The
challenge: Make a few small changes in the kitchen, get organized using the
FoodSaver® system, bags and accessories, and share those experiences. By
sharing their stories of simple and unique ways they have used the FoodSaver®
system to tidy up fans will have the opportunity to win small prizes each week
to help them stay organized all year long. Also, each weekly story fans submit
will enter them into the Grand Prize contest. The entry period ends May 28,

One deserving fan will win the ultimate Grand Prize -- a complete freezer &
pantry makeover courtesy of the FoodSaver® Brand team. The team will descend
on the winner’s kitchen to de-clutter and organize both the freezer and pantry
the right way! The winner will receive a FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System, a
grocery shopping spree with the team, and enjoy a front row seat to a series
of personalized in-home demos on sealing and saving goods in the most
efficient ways. As a bonus, the team will also provide the winner with a few
secondary or unexpected uses for the system. Video and photo content captured
from the exciting Grand Prize fulfillment day in the winner’s home will be
showcased on the brand’s Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest channels, as well as
on The Grand Prize winner will be announced in June.

“This engaging challenge is meant to build awareness of the many unique
storage occasions the FoodSaver® system, bags and accessories afford
consumers, and inspire them to move beyond its basic uses to discover the
endless possibilities,” stated Ofelia Silva, Consumer Marketing Director,
FoodSaver® brand. “Not only will this challenge bring to light tips and
innovative uses for the system, but it will kick start a meaningful
conversation among fans and provide a forum to keep the discussion alive.”

The top three food preservation tips for this spring according to the
FoodSaver® Brand are:

1.Make sure fruits and veggies are frozen separately! When buying extra
    fruits and vegetables to freeze for future use, remember to store them
    separately. Some fruits give off high levels of ethylene, a ripening
    agent, that can prematurely ripen and spoil surrounding vegetables.
2.To thaw or not to thaw? While precooked meals do not need to be thawed,
    they may reheat more evenly if they are. Many meats do not need to be
    thawed completely if they are being cooked at a fast, high heat.
3.Salad-in-a-jar to-go! Save time during the week by preparing a week’s
    worth of lunches all at once. Add all your favorite salad ingredients to a
    Ball® mason jar for on-the-go convenience. The FoodSaver® Brand Wide-Mouth
    Jar Sealer works great with mason jars and keeps salad fresh longer.

And, the brand’s first-ever 2-in-1 system offers the versatility to make it
all happen! The FoodSaver® 4800 Series Vacuum Sealer provides the
functionality and convenience of two vacuum sealing appliances in one. The
system works with heat seal bags and rolls for long term storage, and with its
retractable accessory adapter performs with vacuum zipper bags, canisters and
containers for short term storage! Compact, upscale, and fully automatic, this
appliance features an easy-open drawer with patented removable drip tray for
easy clean up. As always, the FoodSaver® system keeps food fresh up to five
times longer, helps prevent freezer burn, and saves families up to $2,700 a
year*. (MSRP: $169.99 - $199.99)

*Based on buying in bulk and on sale, and preventing waste.
