Rated 5 out of 5 by R1fflay95 Great Kitchen Compliment to Food Saver
My boyfriend is a foodie and anything we can do to make the kitchen experience successful is a must, The food saver marinating canister cuts the time in half of other marinating techniques. Love it!

I bought my V3440 Foodsaver in June 2011. I have filled my freezer with produce from my brother and sisters gardens. I found the Foodsaver very easy to use. It even tells me when I need to empty the overflow tray. How cool is that.
I ordered the two marinators, more than a month ago. I just used one of them for the first time this week. I marinated pork tenders. They were fork tender for the first time ever.
My only complaint is that there are not enough instructions on how to use these marinators! Do I just hook it up, push a button and wait? What is the machine marinator process? How long do I wait? I put the pork tenders in the square container with my 1/2 cup Dale's Sauce and 1/2 cup Minute Maid Lemon Juice. I pushed the marinate button. The Foodsaver vacuumed the air out, but then what? Nothing is written in the instructions that came with my V3440 FoodSaver or the marinator dishes. There are
only safety instructions, how to clean and keep the vacuum nozzle clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SAM11 Fantastic and versatile container
LOVE THEM, my favorite container. Bought 12 and no complaints or cracks. Nice capacity. 3 weeks ago I sliced tom's, grapes, organic bread (with no preservatives) and there still as fresh as the day I purchased them. You have to be careful that the gasket (as in any FS con./can.) is clean/ free of any foreign substance from washing or previous use, and flat/straight in the groove. When you take the top off, the gasket has a tendency to come/loosen up, requiring you to recheck the gasket before vacuuming again. I wash it in luke warm water and let it dry. No problem in using the knob to create the vacuum. I can't think of anything BAD bad to say about it and am very PLEASED and SATISFIED with it.

I recently purchased the FoodSaver marinating. It was easy to use and the chicken took on the marinating flavor. Can't ask for more when a product works as advertised

I had an older model for years. I updated and this new one is superb. For ease of packaging, I especially love the zip lock bag that you can suction. When I cook in larger batches, this FoodSaver preserves my food beautifully.

After much hesitation (regretful) I purchased the Quick Marinator . It is nice looking, a decent size, and easy to use. Just put your food in, add your marinade, and turn on the FoodSaver. Then abracadabra; ready in a few minutes.
The first thing I tried were pork chops. I like pork chops but they usually end up dry. But now that I've got the Quick Marinator no more dry pork chops!
Read the cleaning instructions. Be careful when cleaning the lid. You can wash it carefully. Don't immerse the it and let it thoroughly dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam10 Top favorite out of all the containers/canisters.
Very nice, good quality, very efficient in holding the seal, and many other uses. Bought 10 since Xmas of 2015 and not one crack so far, with daily use. Wash by hand in warm water with detergent. When you remove the top, the seal will partially come loose, and you have to make sure you put it back in the groove. Also just before you vacuum, squeeze the canister together and you will hear a slight amount of air being displaced. This tells me the gray gasket is good and in place. No complaints. L O V E them. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carolee888 Juicy & Tender Chicken!
My FoodSaver marinator was no sooner delivered to my door when I started to try it out for the first time on 3.5lbs of boneless chicken breast for dinner. It's amazing that it only took 30 minutes to produce four of the juiciest and most tender pieces of meat that could be cut with a fork! My only wish is that it was big enough to fit the size and shape of a London Broil. Between the FoodSaver products, my pressure cooker, and outdoor grill, we are eating better than ever while saving money at the same time!!!
