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.

User reviews included. Decide for yourself if this is a new and/or more effective product. [jurist, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]

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]

       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>
