Kitchen gadget based on a 'Tupperware' box with a vacuum pump. Manual pump would suffice.
Throw in your chicken/fish/whatever, evacuate the air and introduce your marinade.
Air within your meat has been sucked out and the marinade will penetrate like you wouldn't believe. Nature abhorrs a vacuum. Me
too, for that matter.
What used to take 24 hours now completed in 10 seconds.

I use one of these (I have a different model) for the exact purpose described, among other things. It's one of the few kitchen gadgets that hasn't been relegated to the back of a drawer or cabinet. I think we've had ours for over 10 years. [half, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||Camping tips: marinating freeze-dried sirloin.
||Wow! It looks like no matter how crazy an idea may seem, there's a Dutch company manufacturing it. (See jurist's link.)
||I think you'd probably want to find the optimum pressure to force open the meat without unduly drying it.
||Way baked, but it does work great.
||Would this qualify as widely known? I used to have one.
||It does in my opinion. According to the mfr's web site, the product I own is available at Sears, Macy's, Robinsons-May and Ace Hardware. Those are just the stores within a few miles of me. I've also seen them at Costco and Fry's electronics and I think at Wal-Mart. We bought ours at the state fair before they became so widely distributed. I have even seen them for sale at the state fair.
||Granted, it's primary marketing isn't as a marinader, but that does figure prominently in the infomercials. <announcer voice>It does much, much more!</av>
