Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this gadget!!! I got this wonderful item from my husband for Christmas several years ago and it gets used all the time. Definitely keeps away the freezer burn!! I also love the ability to seal things in my canning jars to keep them fresh. This Christmas my hubby gave me a Harvest Right freeze dryer and now I also use the sealer to preserve all the freeze dried food in my canning jars. It will not seal the dark, light-free Mylar bags that I use to bag the freeze dried food, but that's OK I have a different sealer for that purpose. But the idea of being able to put up the freeze dried stuff in vacuum sealed jars is great. Every year I have a huge veggie garden and we also have an orchard full of fruit trees and different types of berry bushes, along with several grape vines. I can, I freeze and I also dehydrate and now I freeze dry so that we have wonderful food all year long. Great purchase, I highly recommend it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT PRODUCT I bougth this in December and it was just what I needed and wanted. I did my research on which brand would be the best and it came up with this brand and this model. V3240. I was very confident I would be happy as my old one was a Foodsaver, but was very old and had finally come to the end of its usefulness.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea This is second foodsaver I've purchased. I don't need anything really fancy, just something that works. This model is very temperamental. I've contacted support several times, they've been as helpful as they can be...but this model has problems. For some reason it tends to "jam" on one side, keeping the locking bar down on one side. I literally need to force unit open. Once I get unit open, it has to remain unplugged to "reset" itself. Now if you're trying to put up bulk items...this can be an issue. It's not a "sticky" issue...I make sure I keep it really clean thinking that would help. This unit is just defective I suppose-to look at it-it droops to the side that sticks. I have to have a foodsaver, so I guess I will be getting another, but I won't get one that has this locking bar feature again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FoodSaver V3240 Four stars out of five. My machine had an issue of not releasing the lock mechanism after sealing the bags. The first few times of vacuuming and sealing, or just making bags this would happen. After a while it started to work properly. Now it will only refuse to unlock once in a while. I have found that unplugging the machine then plugging it back in will solve the problem when this happens. sometimes unplugging more than once. It is great when it works properly. I am hopping that it will get better with more use. So far I have packaged steaks, chicken, venison, pork, sausages, hamburgers and it worked great. Only one bag did not seal, probably because the pork rib bone punctured the bag. I am happy with this FoodSaver and if it did not give me problems at the start I would have gave it a five.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inferior Quality Purchased V3240 as novices. With cost of food on the rise, not to mention looming inflation, seemed like a good time to take advantage of meat sales. Easy to set up and simple instructions. Anticipating a great deal of turkey and ham leftovers from Thanksgiving, thought we'd make a practice run. Glad we did. Machine broke on the 5th bag we tried to seal...door would not close properly. Seems to be a design problem with the way the door mechanism and locking bar operate. Rather fragile, poor quality, just not a sturdy machine, certainly not worth the money. We returned the V3240 and bought a V2240 which has proven much more reliable, "feels" of much higher quality, has the same capability except that it does not have the roll storage (a convenience, but we can live without), has a small footprint and is flatter so easier to store, and best of all, it works like a dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is great. The first FoodSaver V3240 I received was defective. A replacement was shipped to me on the same day I reported that I was having a problem and the replacement works perfectly. As I find more and more uses for it, I think purchasing it will be one of the better decisions I have made for my kitchen in a very long time. I live alone, cook all my great meals and the ability to store my leftovers is as important as having the ability to cook them. As a matter of fact, many food items are as good or even better when served as leftovers if they have been stored properly. I use the jar sealer as much as I use the bag sealer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as desired I was given this food saver a month or so ago as a gift. It works just as I had hoped although this soon I can't confirm if the food is in better shape over time. The only problem is that the actual vacuuming and sealing process takes longer than expected and it is noisy. I like the variety of bags and types and being able to create my own bag size; however, the bags are quite expensive. I would purchase this item again or maybe a different, more advanced version.

Does this model have a cutting bar in which you cut your own bags?

I have an old model and it came with 2 items. The sealer and an item that you put a roll of vacuum bags in it and you could custom cut your bags to size. I am wondering if maybe that cutter is somehow on the sealer part rather than separate now.
Asked by: usnamom
the cutter is in the machine and you have to manually pull it across the bag
