First of all, give us a call and we will take care of you: 612-741-6750.
Getting the hang of sealing UMAi Dry® the first time takes a bit of practice. But most of all, you need to adjust your expectations.
UMAi Dry® is a MEMBRANE not a vacuum bag. You want a tough oxygen barrier bag to keep the moisture in. You want an UMAi Dry® membrane to release the moisture and allow for oxygen exchange. Of course they are “flimsy”!!
Did you check out videos and the illustrated instructions in your packet? We have worked diligently over the past ten years to make the process as clear as possible.
All you really need is good, gooey, moist meat and an UMAi Dry® bag. Put the meat in the bag, press the air out to get 75-80% surface contact, and tie it off with a zip tie. Rest it on an open wire rack in a modern frost free fridge with good air flow and AWAY YOU GO!
Give us a call for replacement bags. Okay?
