Restaurants and similar food industries take assistance of vacuum tumblers since they run out of time or want marinating of a larger quantity of meat.
Vacuum causes the pressure inside the tumbler to low down, causing the meat in it to expand. While creating vacuum, the air is drawn out of the drum and hence the meat expands. Also the pores open out, causing the marinade to enter the meat. And later when the vacuum is released the meat is compressed and it regains its original shape and size. The marinade is intact within the meat. The toughness of the meat is removed with the marination and vacuum. The meat is now tender and softer.
The quantity of vacuum is evaluated depending on the type of meat. More if it is on the harder side like pork or beef and lesser if it is chicken. Also during tumbling the scraper rotates which further softens the meat. The tumbling process flips the marinade into the meat enforcing it to produce all possible flavors. The marinade makes the meat tastier. Chefs from famous restaurants and butchers from meat industries use this instrument for adding flavor and taste to their cuisine. Disinfecting the vacuum tumbler is as important as installing it. Keeping it clean and dry for next use is a must.
