Thank you. I guess there is an advantage of using this machine for
marinating. Do you have to worry about the marinating liquid being sucked
into the vacuum machine? Or do you use only a dry cure?

If I'm using a wet cure I'll often use one of the containers they sell
(there is one that says it's for marinating) because it doesn't let the
liquid get sucked into the machine..  But if there isn't too much liquid you
can use a bag.  My husband has recently been into sous vide cooking.  He
uses the bags and it hasn't been a big problem as long as there isn't a lot
of liquid in the bag.

If liquid does get sucked out you just have to clean the machine well (where
the top of the bag goes) - messy but not terminal.
