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 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.

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!!!

Wish I had purchased a long time ago. I put up loads of tomatoes from my garden into the freezer. I also did corn on the cob. I did not take the husk off the corn. I just put them thru the food saver process, put in freezer. I have already eaten some of the tomatoes and corn on the cob. DELICOUS and fresh. It was so easy to use that my 10 year old granddaughter helped. Good product. Really seals in the food. Works great with the marinade canister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bchm Excellent product!
This FoodSaver is so easy to use! I love that you can just insert the bag & walk away. I also like that it is equipped to work with the FoodSaver storage containers as well as bags. The mulitple settings (dry/moist, marinate, etc.) make it so much more versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer This is Indispensable !
The Food Saver SmartSeal Vacuum sealer REALY SUCKS, but in a good way ! We catch and freeze a lot of fish , all summer to feed us through winter.. We used to have to freeze the filets in water to avoid freezer burn, But with this, it does a GREAT job and the food takes up a lot less room in the freezer.
Its also really easy to use, We love it !
