by Verified Reviewer Not one regret about this purchase
I have a full size freezer and have been wanting a foodsaver for a couple of years now. I have a habit of making high ticket purchases and then being sorry or regret it afterwards.. I have no regrets about this purchase and wish I had done it much sooner. My food no longer gets freezer burn, I can buy or make bags of any size and even shape them to fit in the freezer. I am looking forward to getting the accessory containers for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mongo As necessary as a washing machine or stove
I could do a complete commercial. We have owned 3 foodsaver in 15 or so years. We use it every day. We save thousands of dollars buying in large quantities and then sealing in smaller portions. The reason I am writing this is these people stand by their product. I was sealing 40 lbs of chicken breast this weekend when my machine stopped working. After realizing it wasn't something I could fix I told my wife to buy another one, 4th. Today I called customer service hoping for a repair shop suggestion so we had a spare when the one we just bought eventually breaks. (As I said we use this to seal at least a 1,000 lbs of food a year for our family so I getting 5 years use is more than I could ask. Well I was shocked when the customer service person told me I was still under warranty. Ship it back and they would send me a new one. I shipped my unit and they are shipping me a new one. I would never have expected this. What an incredible company that stands by their product even when the customer didn't even know it was under warranty!! I am keeping the one we ordered so I have a spare in the future. Foodsaver has a life long customer in my family!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by dch17 Very Disappointed
My old FoodSaver didn't seem to be getting all the air out so I decided to use the gift card I received from my mother for Christmas to buy a new one. I chose the model V3835 because it had a number of accessories I thought I would use (marinator, wine bottle stoppers, etc). Well, I have tried to use this product a couple of times and so far have been successful at getting the air out one time out of about 10 wasted bags (very expensive endeavor). The fact that you are blindly putting the bag in is probably the main reason it works so badly. I've tried making sure the end that goes in is bent the right direction but every single time (except one) I got a sealed bag with absolutely no air sucked out. Can't afford to continue trying to use this so will be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angel Pines Easy to use !
This is my second Foodsaver ! I have one in my kitchen I use all the time to package leftovers for the freezer. I have had it for years and it still works great ! So I bought another one for my storage room to seal canning jars for long term food storage. I buy in large quantity and I " dry can/seal " crackers, pasta, rice, cereal, etc. Keeps fresh for years ! Just don't seal anything powdery such as flour, sugar etc., the powder can damage the machine. I like this bigger model much better than the smaller ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ken8530 What a joy to use the new Food Saver
When we received the new Food Saver, we promptly unpacked it. We liked the looks of it and read all the material provided. Then, came the fun part of using it. We had few meat portions to be sealed - oh! what a joy it was. We also had some nuts in containers and tried the accessory device - what a snap to use - voila, the nuts are sealed. My wife is a retired chef and likes to have things on hand, so we do not have to run to the grocery store every time she likes to do something different than the norm. We probably will need more canisters to save some more nuts or other things. The Food Saver is much more powerful than the old one and much more faster to do the job also. We would certainly recommend it to friends and family, which we did for a couple of them already. The other bonus, is that it matches our other small appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindy1025 Most valuable kitchen appliance I own!
I have owned a food Saver for over 20 years...I have had this model for about 5 years and I love how it's sleek design and good looks allow me to keep it on my counter top at all times. I can easily take advantage of all of the buy 1 get 1 free meat sales at my local grocery store without worry of freezer burn. My son used to bring me meat to seal for his family when he would buy in bulk. This year I bought him this same model for Christmas. I am sure with its easy to use features they will be enjoying it for years to come. This product is by far worth the money spent on it. I seal more than just meat in it as well. It has a gentle cycle for delicate items as to allow sealing things such as breads and pastries. I can guarantee you that when this one wears out, I will purchase another one immediately. This is a must have appliance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveW My second Foodsaver: It's even better!
This replaced a similar unit, that lasted 6 years.
This is faster, and seems to have more suction. Quite pleased.

This is my first foodsaver purchase, I am absolutely thrilled with. I buy a lot of bulk food and meat and I can portion it out with ease and it stays fresh. I have a family of 5 so this has made my life so much easier, as well as my kids like it. I love the retractable cord it has not tangled or given me any issues. I wish the attachment for the deli bags would have been included, but I got this item on sale and very pleased with it.
