Rated 3 out of 5 by from annoyed i run a small business in which our product needs to be air sealed, so i bought this model and have rated the value at "average". the machine itself works great, it seals quick and isn't too noise also takes up little space. the part where i get very very annoyed is this.. the bags/rolls are very expensive!... and this machine seals the bag an inch and a quarter 1 1/4", from where the bag is cut/precut!!! thats almost 3" of wasted bag per product?!?!?! i hate loosing 1 foot of roll every time i seal 4 of my 7inch items! I'm so aggravated if i had known this earlier i would have looked at other brands that don't rob you of money with their bags and rolls. would i recommend?.. yes, to someone who uses it for small things and doesn't care about wasted bag/roll they paid good money for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Exteremely frustrating product Let me start by saying we loved our previous sealer. The only reason we replaced it was to save counter space and to match our newly renovated Kitchen. While this sealer LOOKS great, it PERFORMS poorly. It often seals only the first bag, if we are trying to seal a series (which we almost always are). With every subsequent bag it either fails to extract air properly or extracts very little and then seals with a bubble of air inside. We've tried the instruction to put a piece of paper towel at the end of the bag and this occasionally works, but most often slips out of place before it can seal. After a frustrating year of struggling with it, it is going into the trash. This is a waste of money and an unfortunate load into the landfill. I don't know if I can trust this company to purchase another of these sealers, but if I do, it will be the flat model, rather than this upright style. Perhaps the older style will once again work as it a vacuum sealer is designed to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I’d been using a hand held vacuum zipper bag system for a number of years that at first was working until the replacement bags proved hard to find and then defective. I bought a Food Saver V3460 and was blown away (excuse the pun)! I was amazed at its ease of use, versatility and space saving countertop appeal. And! It saves a ton of room in my freezer. With the zipper bags my cheeses and dried foods that I access regularly are easily resealed to last twice as long in my refrigerator and cupboard. The bags of chips that I used to put a clip on and toss out weeks later because they got stale no longer exist. I just cut off the top of bag using the built in cutter and put its finished edge in the sealer, hit the gentle button and wham! You’ve got chips that last forever and you can do it over and over till the bag is empty. And! It’s right there at my fingertips. It doesn't get any easier than that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Reliable I have had my vacuum sealer for 5 or 6 years. It has never given me any problems. I recently purchased one of these for a Christmas gift for a friend. She was very happy to get it because her husband does a lot of hunting and this will save a great deal of time packageing all the meat. Also, it will keep the meat fresh much longer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great color in red I bought this item v3461 in red, love the color and that is all thats good about it. Sometimes I have to put the item in 3 or 4 bags to get to seal. When seals leaves air pockets under my roasts letting them get freezer burn. Does not seal 2/3 of time. Don't waste your money, wish I hadnt! Extremely disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from FoodSaver V3460 Vacuum Sealing System I bought this for my son. He opened it to use it and it worked the first couple times real well then it did not seal properly. It kept stopping to cool down before you could use again. Sent this back.

Can the bags be reused?

Asked by: kathy
Yes, but it depends on the previous contents of the bag. Bags that previously contained fruits, vegetables, breads, dry goods, and many desserts can be washed and reused. Bags that contained raw meats, fish, eggs or un-pasteurized cheese should be discarded after use because they may contain invisible bacteria that will remain after washing. Bags that contained greasy or oily foods should also be discarded, as they may be difficult to clean. FoodSaver Bags can be washed by hand, or in the top rack of the dishwasher. Use a wooden clothespin or a clip to hold the bags in place. Dry completely. They can then be re-vacuumed.

can any vacum bags be used or only ones that come from Foodsaver?

Asked by: miluka
To vacuum package with the FoodSaver®, you must use the FoodSaver® Bags. They are specially designed to be strong enough for vacuum packaging and the waffle pattern in the bag is a patented design that makes sure air does not get caught in pockets around the food. FoodSaver® Bags have five layers, including an outer layer of nylon. This configuration completely prevents air and moisture from getting back into the bag and prevents odors from getting out or in. Other plastic bags allow air to seep through. If you want to use your FoodSaver® appliance to re-seal, but not vacuum package a bag (without removing the air first) you can use it on Mylar type (strong, thin polyester) or stiff plastic bags, not any other types. For example, you can re-seal potato chip bags.
