  1. Thanks for the info.
    Just a quick question…
    Why not seal the bag after adding the oil?
    Is it just so the oil doesn’t leak out during the vacuum seal?
    Or will it effect the Infusion?
    I have a chamber vacuum that perfect to vacuum seal liquids like soup & sauces.
    Thanks again for the info.
