I have found that for ease in marinating, you cannot do without ziplock freezer bags. You can marinate a product using much less marinade, you don't need to keep flipping the product over to get all sides, and it takes up very little space in the fridge (once you squeeze all of the air out). Any one else have some handy shortcuts to share?

I've had good luck using a vaccum sealer. NOT the bag, they have major problems with the liquid. But the cannisters work great. I find that in a short time the flavor imparted is much greater.

I too find that the big ziploc bags, like chagan says, work great. I find that it is easier to work with, or when I am not home, I can call the wife and all she has to do is move the bag around or switch shelves and everything stays moist.

Definitely ziploc freezer bags where possible. Easy to use, doesn't take up much space, and clean-up is a snap.
