Title: Reveo Marinator
Post by: nsxbill on February 17, 2005, 05:22:04 AM
I have purchased one of these marinators for full boat so I can write a non-biased review on it.  Most of you know how I like my toys!

I will be offering interested folks a discount who are members of the Bradley forum if I decide to become a dealer.  I like the idea.  More to come after I try it out..

Give it a look....

Bill,
 
  I bet you will not want to part with it! You should try some smoked poultry using just a basic maple or brown sugar cure. I have used a tumbler before and can attest to their capabilities. The seasonings that we used were made under the name "Leggs". I'll try to find out more info regarding cure amounts etc if you would be interested.
   
Let us hear some comments on your first test re: vacuum pressure, tumbling action,  etc...

Well, I got the marinator today, and I am going to try it out tonight.  I carefully unpacked it, and found the item to feel pretty solid.  To tumbler is what appears to be lexan or polycarbonate container, and the parts fit well.  

Going to clean it up, and toss in a couple of nice Filet Mignon, vacuum first then tumble for about 15 minutes.

There was a little scratch on the front of the unit, and label damage on one corner. Rather than exchanging it, offered $50 credit, which dropped price to $149...not bad (I will be offering a great discount on these if opting to be dealer - email me for details!).

Hope it works well.  I like the concept!

Well after a good tumble with 2 Tbsp. Jamaican Jerk Spice, 2 Tbsp. EEOO, and 2 Tbsp. Water, I grilled the filets when the BBQ reached 600° about 6 min. per side, and enjoyed immensely.  Wife thought hers was a little too spicy, but definitely a do again!  Going to try some lime shrimp tomorrow.  I think this is going to work out well.  The noise level is acceptably quiet, other than the sound of the tumbling meat.

If you are interested in a great price+shipping, a big savings on this marinator, email me.  I have to put together 12 people for the order.  That is Big percentage off, and I doubt you will find it cheaper anywhere else.  I have a Paypal account and as soon as I get the number of interested parties..at least 9, I will place an order for them. ( I will probably give the remaining 3 to my kids for their use!).

Bill,

I sent you an email. Count me in.

Now a note to everyone: This is a great way to marinade and cure meat. This tumbler is for anyone that truly loves a good marinade. There just is no comparison to the ability to absorb the flavor of whatever marinade or cure that you use. I actually have no intention of purchasing any marinades from this company (though I have not tried their products yet). I'm sure they are excellent but, there are alot of products and recipes available that are excellent as well. The BIG proccesors out there all use gigantic tumblers for their brining and marinading needs. This is the first home style version of this quality available and if you get in line you can save a few bucks!
  The other thing regarding the tumbler. If I want mesquite and wife wants lemon pepper and daughter wants butter garlic, I can put ingredients in seperate vacuum seal bags with little or no vacuum on the bags(just to seal each bag)and tumble everything at once. I may even do it the night before so that when I am ready to grill or smoke my marinaded items are ready. Now if I want to do large batch for the smoker, I can mariade in batches and smoke everything at the same time. Just refrigerate everything until the tumbler is done.

Help Free the Meat!!!!    [:D][8D][:D]

Bill,

I've used the vacuum marination method in the past & agree on it's value. And, I can see where a tumbler would greatly save on the amount of marinade you'd need to use. So I'm sold on the benefits it brings to the table.

What I'm hung up on is the 5 pound max capacity (inlcuding marinade). I see Doug's point about doing steaks & the like in batches, but what about pork loin, butts, brisket, tri-tips etc.?

You've got hands-on experience with this unit and I value your product assesment abilities. Am I making more of a deal than I should be about the capacity?

Post by: nsxbill on February 20, 2005, 05:48:00 PM
It has a 5 lb capacity.  That is a limitation.  It won't work for butts, but it will work for ribs, steaks, jerkey, chicken, sausage, and will work for me even if I have to do a couple of 20 minute batches to marinate everything.  With a price tag of $1500 for a used and heavy restaurant size vacuum model, this seems a good alternative.

Big butts....still have to be done conventionally.  I suspect Turkey breast will fit if a smaller one.  I know a whole chicken will fit.

I am doing ribs today with a little bourbon, jamaican Jerk and then dusting with Willingham's dry rub before putting them in the smoker.  

As it goes, will let you know how it works.

I'm one of the "five" on the list.....right now, I use the Foodsaver vacuum marinator, but it's limited on size and I feel the need to shake it every so often to get the juices "sucked in" on all sides. (Leave it alone Kirk!![;)])  I don't know enough yet to be sure whether I'll use it on fish fillets, but I can see it being used on "tougher" meats....caribou, moose, housecats[:D], etc!

Post by: nsxbill on February 24, 2005, 02:16:42 PM
MSRP Manufacturers suggested retail price
MAP = This is what you see when an advertiser posts a "Too low to show" price in place of a selling price.  The reason for this is what is known as "MAP", or Minimum Advertisable Price.

MAP is a voluntarily agreement that all legitimate manufacturer authorized retailers enter into with their authorized USA supplier, usually the manufacturer, and in some cases, the official USA distribution arm designated by the manufacturer. According to such agreements, retailers can usually sell MAP restricted items for any price they choose, but may not display in any print or online advertising, a price below the Minimum Advertisable Price.

That is what I am doing with these Reveos.  I am going to ulitmately start selling them on Ebay at $199 Buy it now price, but include 4 cans of spices with them so I can get the retail customer a little break..

The Bradley forum folks will be handled differently.  The Reveo to my cohorts here will be a great price, and include two cans of spices.  Shipping is approximately 10% of what I am selling them for.  I cannot say what I am selling them for, but the shipping is $15 (Hint Hint).

I need three more purchasers to get this rolling.

You just have to get out the foot bath, warm up some oil and have it on hand.  Soak her feet for 20 min in some of Madge's Palmolive Green Dishwashing Soap after you trim her nails for her.  Take a little pumice stone and rub down the callouses.  Apply the oil.  Initially it is for a leg and calf massage - I like to use Neutrogena almond scented oil....you decide how far up her legs, etc to go.  Success with this might not only sanction a marinator but a new Guru....never can tell.

I draw the line at applying color....she can do that herself.

The marinator is a nice item.  Will give you some nice meat, fruit veggies, sauces...whatever you choose to infuse flavor to....no toe nail cuttings however, and her feet won't fit.

I will be ordering 12 of these on Monday or Tuesday...I have committments for 8 of them thus far.  I anyone else wants in, let me know asap.

A synopsis of the capability leached off their site:

http://www.freethemeat.org

Problem     
Few people have two full days for advance meal preparation.  Most marination is done just before cooking – with conventional bag or pan marination that only coats the surface of food and does not tenderize.  

Result?  Marinade burns off when cooked; meat is tough and bland.

Solution    

The Reveo saves flavor and time.  The MariVac™ technology pulls marinade to the core for more flavorful, tender meat.  10 minutes with Reveo exceeds two days of traditional soak-marination.

Vacuum marination is a proven technology used by butchers and meat processors for decades to infuse flavor into food.  The Reveo brings the technology into the home for everyday use.

BENEFITS
Faster – Eliminates advance marination.  Reveo can marinate a whole chicken in just 20 minutes.

Gourmet Flavor and Tenderness – Abundant moisture makes modest overcooking undetectable.  Added flavor enhances any chef’s cooking, making everyday meals taste great, while saving time.

Tastier Lean Meats & Wild Game – Fat is no longer necessary to flavor leaner cuts and the strong flavor of wild game is easily overcome with Reveo’s powerful marination.

Less Marinade – Uses _ the amount of marinade of bag-soaks (2 cups flavors a whole chicken.)

It won't do a 10-12# brisket or Butt, but it will do all the other stuff we smoke on a day to day basis, as well as fruit and veggies.

I don't want you to think I am spamming the list.  This is just a deal I set-up after buying one full boat to try myself.  It really works well.  For those units that don't sell, I will just sell at $199 MAP on Ebay.  If you haven't figured out how much I am selling them for to list members, private email to me for quote.

And the list of toys grows!

HOW  IT  WORKS

Turns Meat Into A Sponge – Without the Reveo, atmospheric pressure actually compresses meat, making it difficult to absorb marinade.  The Reveo’s MariVac pump removes pressure, relaxing meat fibers to pull flavor to the core.

Penetrates and Tenderizes – Next, the Reveo automatically tumbles meat in marinade with plastic paddles to tenderize and massage marinade into the meat.  (Also good for vegetables, fruit and tofu.) When the vacuum seal is released, the food soaks up marinade like a sponge in water.

REVEO ANATOMY
Uses the same powerful vacuum pump found in commercial grade meat tumblers.

Sized to marinate up to a whole chicken, roast, four T-Bone steaks or 4 lbs. of shrimp.

Tumbling can be set from 2 minutes (for shrimp) to 20 minutes (for a whole chicken.)

The Reveo barrel and lid are stain resistant and dishwasher safe.

Reveo manual has instructions for use with bottled marinades and recipes for homemade concoctions.

Can you use it for brining?  Does it speed up the time for that?  Say you were going to make Kummok's Salmon and usually brine it for 10 hours ... can you do it in 20 minutes?
Title: Re: Reveo Marinator
Post by: Habanero Smoker on March 01, 2005, 04:29:20 PM
It would speed up the brining process, but one would have to experiment with times. Though Revco states that you can marinade in 20 minutes, it is not clear if the marinade is penetrating fully or just deeper (though the manual states that it will increase the meat weight by 10%). For brining you want to get full penetration, this may or may not be more then 20 minutes, but I would guestimate that it would be less than an hour maximum.

I am purchasing it mainly for brining, and will be experimenting with times.
Title: Re: Reveo Marinator
Post by: birdboy on March 01, 2005, 04:57:11 PM
That would certainly be a huge selling point ... I don't think my wife would blink an eye if that was the case.  No finding room for big containers in the fridge, no having to flip them from time to time, no having to plan so far in advance but being able to more spur of the moment....  If the same results could be had in less than an hour, I think the resounding answer would be H*ll yes !

It would be cool if someone with one tried Kummok's salmon and reported out on it... can you really do samlmon or would it break it up into pieces...

The best person to report that will be Kummok.  He bought one too.  I plan on trying it with Salmon.  It is a pretty gentle roll.  You vacuum then rotate.  I think it is gentle enough for salmon, and plan on trying it myself. I did 10# of Jerkey last night, 5# at a time.  The final product is super.  Since Salmon is something I do only about 5% of the time, not an issue for me.

Good grief, Bill, I can't wait for it to arrive!! Did you place the order yet?  Did you get any info on the extra containers?
I can't believe just a few days ago I was living without one perfectly fine and now I can't do anything until I get this thing!!

I am going to fax the order to them tonight.  I have one more person who wants to get in on this.  He is going to discuss with little woman and let me know.    I will private you about the cannisters.

Open message to you about-to-be "Flavoristas:"

Order was placed very early this morning (had to wait for one echeck to clear).  Persons ordering and confirmed are

1.  SmokinMoe + additional items
2.  ChezBubba
3.  Kummok
4.  Habenero Smoker
5.  Big Smoker
6.  JJC
7.  Jaeger
8.  St.Helen's Smoker

I am sure these experienced smokers will get back to you with similar feedback to mine about how well this works as a simple stand alone unit for improving the process of quick marination of meats, veggies and fruits.

I have done a number of steaks, ribs, crab dip and this well-made item really works well.  I have ordered 13 total, and gifting my kids with one each.  I will have a couple left over from this order.  If you are interested, let me know.  Email me privately for the deal of the century. [:D][:D]   The MAP is $199 but offering you a much better deal as a member of this list...just can't advertise for less.

The order of Marivac Reveos should be arriving this coming week.  They were shipped out of east coast on the 8th.  I bought 14 and I have four more available for listers at a special price.  If you want one, get in on this initial buy.  MAP is set on this item, but Email me for a better price.  Shipping is $15 additional in U.S.

Last chance---going going  and almost gone.

All the marinators but one have been shipped out guys and gal!  Sorry Kummok...I have to add something to yours, and after getting shipment in had to do addresses etc and post office closed when I get home from work.  I promise I will mail yours on Wed morning after I add what I owe you to the box.

The average cost of shipping was about $19-$20 ea with $200 Insurance, but I told ya'll I would cover anything over $15.  The Paypal fees were $5.05 each(crooks), but glad to do this for you.  I still have 4 available, and I doubt you will see a better price than what I sold them for....Again, the MAP is $199...I can't post a price for less, but if you email me you will get the deal du jour!

All you about-to-be marinators.  Have a friend that likes your marivac...send them my way.
