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.

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 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.

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 5 out of 5 by Eliza7227 Very pleased
My new Food Saver 3240 is great. Because it has a narrow footprint, I leave it on the counter and can easily seal foods quickly. Love the cutting feature as I prefer to custom cut my bags, and the material is stored above the cutting slider .
A couple of caveats: Although the 'gentle' vacuum feature is not very gentle, the vacuum feature can be stopped if necessary, so it is possible to seal the bag with a partial vacuum. When selecting the 'wet contents' option, it is still important to pre-freeze any food containing liquid, because the vacuum pulls the moisture up (and out) if you are not careful or do not have an extended unfilled space.
My Food Freshness rating has not be fully tested since I have only owned this model about a month, but experience with my old entry-level Food Saver assures me the results will be good to excellent,
Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

I have been wanting one for a long time. After cleaning out my freezer and having to throw out lots of food worth lots of money, I finally, seriously started researching and found my model recommended for its features, but not it's price. As it turns out my model was on sale and I got it for 58% off SRP. In comparing this web site to others, this price couldn't be beaten. It seemed a steal.
It arrived on time, undamaged and was exactly as described and ready for use. I repackaged some proteins that were already frozen, but not airtight. Now I feel confident these foods will last me a lot longer. This model is easy to use. It is nice that there is a cutting blade built in. Now I can be sure of a straight line that will make the sealing better. It has worked flawlessly and quickly. It was nice to have a sampling of the different bag types and sizes sent with it. I have vac. and sealed beef, fish pork and poultry as well as fruit. Now when it is the end of season for fresh fruit, i.e. apricots, nectarines, peaches and berries, I can vac. & seal them and enjoy them out of season. Same with vegetables. Now I can just blanch, vac., seal and have a peach at Christmas, that was reasonably priced and picked that day from my Grower's Market. I just love it and don't know why I haven't had one forever. It is truly a miracle product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie43 V3240 Food Saver
I researched the different food saver products to see which one fit my current needs. I had one 30 years ago and loved it but my career took off and I got out of the habit of using the food saver I had.
I found an article in Consumer Reports or Consumer Guide recommending the V3240, so I bought it. After using it several times since Christmas, I don't know how I ever got along without it. It is SO easy to use from A_Z. The guide book is very well written and the heat seals are solid so there is no leakage or air spaces once the package is filled and sealed a second time.
I can't wait for the spring, summer, and fall harvests so I can freeze my own fresh produce and meats.
