Ok, this isn't much but I thought it was genius when I saw it. I rarely watch commercials anymore but I guess I was for some reason or maybe I flipped to Food Network and Alton Brown was on none the less it doesn't matter what matters is I saw a neat kitchen tip compliments of Alton Brown!
Do you ever have trouble getting all the air out of your baggie that you're putting in the freezer or fridge. I know I do sometimes. Well, to help it, close it up nearly all the way and then insert a straw at the edge and suck out all the air. Way to cool and way to easy!
Hope it makes your life a bit easier at times!
