by AshMarieB Excellent product and wonderful space saver!
This is my first time purchasing a Foodsaver Vacuum and I'm so glad I finally did! I love the idea of sealing an array of items for keeping them long lasting and fresh! Also, not only does sealing food for your freezer enable you to utilize much more space, the Foodsaver Vacuum itself is wonderful compact size that doesn't take up an overbearing amount of room on your countertops!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Calebsgrammy I loved it until......
I purchased this and was so excited because I always buy my meat in the bigger family packs even though it's just my husband and I. I would buy these big packs, get out the freezer bags, portion into meal size potion, put the meat into the freezer bag and get a straw to draw all the excess air out of the bag. I finally decided to buy a Food Saver Vacuum Sealer and rolls(so I could make my own size bag) and I loved it! No more sucking out the air from a freezer bag! The sad part, I hadn't even used up all the rolls I purchased and my sealer quit! It wasn't a slow dying process, it was just one day I went to use it and it just wouldn't work! No sound what so ever and it was barely over a year old! I purchased the smaller one because I knew it wouldn't get a lot of use. I guess in the long run I should have purchased the bigger one even though I didn't need it. But they say hind sight is 20/20, spending a little more I might still have a Vacuum Sealer instead of a straw,,,

Rated 1 out of 5 by MaSha ***Do NOT Purchase this item***
I bought this food saver for my mom to make things easier and to do an overhaul of her deep freezer. I purchased the V2244 because of the great reviews but I am very disappointed. It seals the bag fine but does not vacuum(wet) and seal properly. I purchased many pounds of meat when I went to visit my mom and spent almost the entire time there trying to properly seal it for storage. I wasted most of the bags in the process. This was a waste and I am seeking to return it ASAP!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopper Great sealer.
I bought this sealer to work with the mason jar sealer attachment and It works great. It seals the jars quickly and very easy to use.

Have been using Food Saver for years and mine just quit one day. Went on line and Penney's had this one on sale. Look elsewhere and Penney's was the best price. This one is smaller than my other one but it does the job and doesn't take up as much room on the counter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Genine FS should reevaluate this particular machine
Yes, I've read the manual, even numerous reviews. Had to replace the seal gaskets. It still won't vacuum properly UNLESS I place my hand on the middle of the top and apply slight pressure. Heat seals can be "hit and miss" at times, so I have to really look at them. The jar sealer is tricky and I've had success with that(haven't used it much) but I can say that it takes practice. For making your initial heat seams, DO let the machine cool down in between cycles and make sure to have the printed side of the bag is facing UP. Frustrating, I know. To be honest, I would recommend a higher quality machine. I've owned mine for 3 yrs now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grammajd food saver is very useful and reliable.
I purchased this food saver as a bridal shower gift. I have had a food saver for about 18 years and I love it. It is very reliable and we use it daily.

I got mine as a gift for Christmas this year - not sure when it was actually purchased for me, though. Hoping it isn't past the point of being able to return it! I fired it up, and it worked wonderfully - ONCE. I let it sit for 20 minutes while I prepared the next items. When I closed it all up and latched it down to commence the second bag ever, nothing happened. No lights, no power, etc. :( I have checked and flipped all of the gaskets, pushed down on the lid to see if it just wasn't registering that it was closed, checked for any other visual issues - no go. All day, I have taken it back out, and tried again, thinking it must have been a fluke - no power. Tried different outlets in my home, nothing. Is there a fuse? Contacting customer service for replacement. :( Will update my review (if possible) after the issue is resolved! My product ratings are only valid if I get a working unit! I IMAGINE that it will be wonderful when it works! :)
