[pct-l] Sealing Machines

I think the real expensive ones ($$?) produce a hermetic seal and can
greatly extend the shelf life of foods-- especially dehydrated foods. I am
also in the market but haven't done the research so I'll just repeat your
general query here.
 Along similar lines, I am pretty sure I'll be investing in both a quality
dehydrator and one of those vacuum-seal machines. I would be interested in
whether anyone has set up a system, specifically to dry and seal their
backpacking pantry items. hat do you think?-- well worth the investment of
money and time?
