by Luggageshopper Love FoodSaver
Love FoodSaver products. I had one for 10 years and it finally wore out. I upgraded to this model and loved it the first time I used it but am finding it not sealing as well as it did the first time. Will have to see if the problem continues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hipmamaw A gift for my sons family
I purchased this as a gift for my son and daughter n law for Christmas. My husband and I purchased one for ourselves in the summer to freeze vegetables instead of canning them. After just the first use we were hooked and have been buying meat and vegetables in bulk as they go on sale to freeze. It gets a lot of use and we've had no problem with it. So much quicker and easier than canning. We have told several family members and friends about food saver that they are now doing it too. Can't wait to see my son and daughter n law open the gift for Christmas because they said they would really get use out of having one.

Does not latch...will be taking back and trying the replacement.
Hope it was just a bad one and the next will work properly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lynn It does what it says
Although I do not like this model as well as the previous model I owned, it is acceptable in doing its job. It took a bit to figure out how to hold the bag in to get maximum sealing, which I did not have to do with my prev one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tracencolor Good choice
I previously had an older model which required the top to be held down to vac/seal. I was leery changing it based on some of the reviews I'd read on newer models but I'm happy with this updated model. Easy to use and actually wastes less bag than my older model did. Works well - I recently packaged up approx 50 bags of hamburger and it never got super hot and I only had slight problems with 2 or 3 of the bags (meaning I had to spend more than a few seconds to readjust them to get them to vacuum properly).
The only cons - takes up more room than my older model and it seems louder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gailcie Does not meet my expectations
They make it look so simple on the commercial but it is not so simple. Anything with moisture has to be frozen first before it can be vacuum sealed. Most meats have moisture. Anything tender like berries or lettuce just gets squashed; you need the canisters. It takes practice to get it to work the way you would expect it to work. I am still learning but I believe it will work if I work with it.
