Instant Marinator

Marinate and deep-season meat, fish or vegetables in just minutes.


Add flavor faster! Instant marinator lets you marinate and season deep into your food in just 5 minutes, not hours.
It's so easy to use! First, place food in the marinator (you can layer food if you wish). Then create your own marinade and pour it over the food, along with any seasoning. Secure the lid and pump out the air to create a vacuum. This opens the pores of the food, allowing the marinade to penetrate the food and flavor it in mere minutes.

All the benefits of marinating, without the time-consuming hassle.
Marinating adds flavor and protects fish, meat, poultry and vegetables from the heat of grilling, baking or pan searing. Now you can enjoy the same enhanced flavor, with only minutes of preparation. Polycarbonate. Top rack dishwasher-safe. 2 1/2 quart capacity.

Great for meal preparation in a busy home or for the adventurous chef on the go—and wonderfully simple to use. Order yours today!

OK, this product does a noteworthy job for what it is supposed to do: create a vacuum through which the marination process is accelerated. You can actually get a decent marinade in the five minutes cited in the product profile, so I'll give the product credit for that.

The included recipe guide doesn't immediately strike me as too interesting altough it does look like a nice tutorial for those not fully seasoned (pun intended) in the art of BBQ grilling. I think it's referred to as "Grilling for Girls" or something like that, but really, it's fine for everyone.

The material is actually pretty good quality, too. Everything's plastic or rubber and is actually a step up from what you'd (fearfully) expect.

The capacity is also noteworthy: there's plenty of room for meats to serve up to six or eight. I simply made a few steaks the first time out, and they looked pretty lonely. Another tip: try putting a bit of your marinade on the bottom of the dish before placing your meat--this will help saturate both desides of your main course.

You do pay for what you get, though. What I mean is that the product isn't cheap in terms of cost, either. So, I wouldn't call it high value although it may be higher quality.

Bottom line: if you have kids running around your feet and simply want to enjoy a nice marinade that can be prepared in the time it takes to heat the BBQ, this is the item for you. You won't be buying it for a fire sale price, but you also won't find it collecting dust in the corner of your pantry.

I had trouble getting the seal to start. Although I did not have a lot of food in it there was one piece was too high in the middle (no even touching the top cover) and when I moved it I was able to start the suction process.

Returned unit after using twice. I tried marinating small chicken wings and pork chops. The outcome was no different than using a ziploc bag. The unit itself is nicely built but I couldn't justify the space it took up for the job it did.

        Comments about Instant Marinator:

        Amazing at getting the flavor in meats. This is my second one. I used the first one for more than a year and apparently put too much vacuum pressure on the lid because it fractured. It works so well though that I bought another one - I'll just not pump it so many times as before!

                    I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend, who is constantly marinating things for the grill. It saves him so much time, he uses it almost daily. It is very easy to hand wash, dry and use again.

                        Meat is so tender that it seems as though it has been marinating overnight. I have recommended the marinator to several as gifts and have purchased several as gifts.
