Food can be sealed andMarinated in minutes with a handheld sealer. The patented dishwasher-safe drip tray helps keep your counter clean. 5 year limited warranty.
👤I used to use the old Food Saver unit for almost 7 years before it gave up the ghost. I don't like the system at all. The unit fails to remove the air from the first bag on subsequent attempts. The vacuum pump stops and the air is drawn out. I have to press the "Cancel" button before it can seal the bag and restart the vacuum process. Total failure. I am past the return period. I'll try again, this unit is going in the trash.
👤The 4840 only lasted 4 months after minimal usage. I bought the extended warranty after ordering another. Suggest the same thing to anyone who reads it. The new 4840 won't vacuum seal. The first lose of meat was sent back to the factory. It cost less than the meat I lost.
👤The handle won't go back in after being pulled out.
👤I vacuum sealed the meat. I had to clean the tray. I was told to use a butter knife. Didn't work. I prefer the older type without all of the bells and whistles. Lift the lid, place the bag over the seal, and seal it. There are too many things to go wrong when they add all of the extras. The foodsaver vacuum was in use for 8 years and never had a problem.
👤I debated for a long time if a single person who does limited cooking could justify a vacuum sealer. It makes sense for a single person to buy a larger quantity of meat or produce than they need, but it also makes sense for a large family to buy a larger quantity. I can buy a pound of beef, chicken or vegetables, portion it into a single serving, and use it for a long time. I haven't tried "sous vide" style cooking yet, but I believe this machine with FoodSaver bags will work. The model that FoodSaver offers is not the highest-end model, but it has good reviews on independent rating sites. I am satisfied with the ease of use and performance, and it may help me to resist the temptation to grab a frozen pizza at the grocery store if I have easy-to-prepare single portions of more nutrition-rich food at home. Carefully read the directions.
👤The extra money should be used to get this unit. I got a unit for half the price and most of the vacuumed sealed packages leaked after 24 hours. I got the unit after returning it. There have been about 20 sealed packages. The unit is easy to seal and vacuum and so far it has been great. The roll holder and sliding cutter make it very easy to use. The unit is bulky for permanent counter storage.
👤I don't have to keep a chest freezer or two. I need to store things for later use, even if it's fresh meat, produce, or the heroic batches of stew or chili that just came off the stove. Along with Food Saver products, the years have taught me a lot. I got onboard with this system when it was on the market. We've gone through some changes. I like some of the older systems. An old guy hates change. I'm on board with this newest one, and it's serving me well... It uses more bags than the old ones, but it's still impressive. I can't imagine being without the ability to vacuum seal. This one is so easy to do.

👤I have used this almost daily since I bought it around February 14th. It was a great buy for the money. Would recommend!
👤This is my first job. I buy a lot of food when it's on sale. I make my own sausages, cut my own french fries, and press my own burger patties. That hurts the taste of food. I can store for longer periods and not ruin what I make. It's not bad on the vacuum. The seals are very good. It's nice to have a built in cutter. I've used it on dry items. It works great if you follow directions.
👤I love my vacuum. My children say that I don't need any of these machines because I don't have the brain power to use them, but I did use one of them and it was great. I sealed my house because they said it was easy to use and the power was great. My children are asking me why I let the grandkids open things I know they aren't going to eat, then I use my vacuum sealer.
👤Some of the problems that are being written about have not been experienced by me. Sometimes the open end of the bag needs to be moved to get a vacuum. I have sealed both dry and wet packages. Have used it to reseal heat sealed packages from the grocery store.
👤This is only for home use. You have to buy different bags than the ones that come with it. They don't work. I included the picture of the extra bags I ordered the same day. Y'all. Everything in this house has been sealed. It's easy and fun. I highly recommend it. It's hard to believe at that price. I bought 2 cases of strawberries and it didn't mess up.
👤I tried out a similar product that was lighter and thinner, but I decided to use this one because it was more powerful and had a bag roll that was safe. The bag trimmer falls off. I had 2 other people install it for me, and it came off after one bag. The machine is great and I could use Ziplock bags and use the suction for my wine bottles. I am happy I got the machine, but I wish it had a vac only or release button so that I don't have to worry about the bags being sealed. It seals very well, so you can't easily open the bag like those with lite seals.
👤Make sure you have a bag in the end slot because it will not suck the air out. I hate myself for not buying it sooner. I separated my hot dogs into 8 hot dogs per bag and 5 hot dogs per bag to save room in my freezer and freezer burn.
👤It is simple and neat.
👤No me gusto, no venia el rollo, no funciona de maravilla.
A fully starter kit includes 1 red wine cork, 5 vacuum bag, 1 vacuum seal roll, and 1 accessory hose, without the need for an extra purchase. The FoodSaver system in the freezer can last up to 3 years and still taste great, and you can prep ahead meals, leftovers, and produce in the fridge to keep it fresh. Automatic bag detection makes vacuum seal easier than ever because you just put the bag in the vacuum chamber and the machine does the rest. The product is simple to use, it has built in roll storage and cutter that makes it easy to make custom sized bags to fit whatever you seal. The V4440 is a very consistent seal that is guaranteed to reach an optimal vacuum level and airtight seal. Product 2. For use with jars. Product 2 is great for sauces, mustards, and jams. Product 2 is stain resistant and odor proof. Product 2. It's dishwasher safe.
👤I love these machines. I got this model because I thought it would have a better ability to seal when there's water in it. It's the same problem when there's any humidity. If there's any water in between the two seal elements, then why have a catch? It's not good because anything you're going to seal that's food is going to have some sort of humidity. It keeps it from being sealed. I could have kept my 1998 model. The accessories and roll holder are 4 stars. I wouldn't buy it again. Either go higher or lower. It's more powerful than the smaller ones, but the seal issue is hard to deal with when you have a lot of work to do.
👤I had trouble getting things to seal because I had to follow instructions. I had to call to get the jars sealed. Adding another child to the process worked better when she explained it. These are handy to save money by buying in bulk. I have this on hand to use.
👤I used a Seal a Meal almost every day and this is a replacement. This one is even better. It is more automatic. I love this unit.
👤Everything works well if you are used to it.
👤The power of this model is new and improved.
Customer recognition of the product is their greatest expectation. If you have any problems when you use the product, or if you have any problems when you receive it, they will solve them quickly. The multi-layer design of the BPA free design is made of durable yet flexible material that creates an airtight barrier around foods, extending freshness and locking in flavors. It's better to have the option to cut the roll to the length you need, rather than having to use up material or risk " Doesn't Quite Fit" scenarios. It's ideal for use with FoodSaver vacuum sealing systems. The FoodSaver vacuum sealers have a sealed strip that works with FoodSaver bag material to ensure a secure seal. It's safe for storing raw and cooked foods, and it's also freezer, refrigerator, microwave, and boil safe. There are two heat seal rolls and three heat seal rolls.
👤Garbage. I bought a food saver vacuum Sealer a couple months ago and have been unimpressed, I wasted $150 on a sub-par product. I bought a variety of rolls from the box that contained the sealer. I saved a small piece of the original roll to compare after reading some bad reviews. The original bag is wider than the one I got with this order, which is interesting since they're both supposed to be 11 inches. The original roll on the left has channels, but the one on the right has little studs not connected in any way. Next, look at the rolls and see all the wrinkling and creasing, as someone else suggested these are quality control rejects that are just going off via Amazon. The product unmade in China is funny, given how much the company lies about quality. FoodSaver gives an answer to some of the product questions. There are two trends involving misrepresentation. For example, someone asks if the bags contain the same things as FoodSaver, they don't even care enough to give an honest answer or take the time to read the question, and for many questions where people ask if the bags can be used for something. That's what I would recommend. I'm returning the garbage rolls and spending my money on a better product. FoodSaver is cheap and made in China.
👤I was thrilled to find a five roll pack for $10 cheaper than I pay at Walmart, but the bags I received were not the same quality bags I've used before. I wanted to use the 8 inch rolls when I opened this box because I was bagging up 80 pounds of chicken. The textured side was lighter in weight. The bags were textured only on one side. The bags were not sealed with air inside. I called Food Saver and they said they hadn't changed the design of their bags. I used the 11 inch roll from the last box to finish the chicken. The pictures show the box that the rolls came in and compares it to the box that the rolls came from on Amazon. The project turned into a complicated mess and hours on the phone, but Amazon is going to give me a refund. The original Food saver bags are great, but they are nothing more than junk. If I could, I wouldn't give stars.
👤These are good bags. I've tried the knockoff bags before, but they didn't always vacuum down all the way. The little dots weren't big enough to allow the air to flow through. The FoodSaver bags are always up to date. I like the fact that I can just toss the bag in the microwave. It's best to toss it in a pot of boiling water. It's likely to melt if you use a regular bag. It was not intentional.
👤These are not the same bags. The quality is different. Did you not seal? I got an automated response after writing to FoodSaver. Nothing has been done yet. Completely dissatisfied. A lesser quality product was paid for by this name brand.
Save money and keep food fresh by using a 6 in 1 vacuum sealer. Airtight heat seal keeps food fresh and delicious up to 8 times longer, helping save money and space. Make the machine a good help in your life. The upgraded air seal system technology brings you a powerful suction. The 80kpa stronger suction makes it possible to complete the vacuum and seal in 10 seconds or less. There is visual bag storage and a premium cutter in the GLADTOP vacuum sealer. You don't need to open the lid of the vacuum and take the bag with you, just cut the bags according to your needs. There are three modes for the vacuum sealer machine. These modes can be used for everything. Such as beef fish seadfood nuts and vegetables. Bring you a new life. The starter kit includes vacuum bags, vacuum bag roll, air hose, and an instruction manual. The vacuum systems are designed to work with GLADTOP bags and rolls.
👤I had a fancy Food Saver machine that I used for 10 years before it died. I was not sure about getting a brand I wasn't familiar with but I was able to get a special coupon that brought the price down to $30 so I decided to try it. I'm glad I did. I like this one more than my Food Saver but it is not that big of a deal. My Food Saver had a bar that held the bag roll in place for you to cut so it was easier, but this one you just have to hold the edge of the bag to cut it so it's not a problem.
👤Thanks to the quick shipping, I got this unit. The unit came with everything ready to use, and the motor sounds good, it makes quick work of large items, and the included bags make it easy to use. Will be ordering more gifts for him.
👤This one came out of the box and never worked for me, I will never try to use a lesser brand again. I learned something.
👤I bought this to replace an older vacuum that was not always sealed. It works well and seems to do a good job. It is slower than my old one, but it works the way it should. The product is nice.
👤We grow vegetables in our garden all year long. The air-tight package created by the vacuum sealer will keep our food fresh. I wish we had gotten this years ago.
👤I used 5x and the nxt bag became stuck to the heat strip and melted plastic, I had to redo it. Will not seal that area.
👤This item is easy to use.
👤I bought one for myself because my son was so impressed with it that he bought one for me. Love it.
VACUUM INDICATOR: A convenient vacuum indicator shows when air is removed from the container, it has a powerful vacuum seal, and it's easy to clean. Food should be kept fresh longer.

👤We love to be outdoors with our family. Hunt and fish year round. We grocery shop as well. Load camp and home freezers. Very experienced vacuum Sealers. Decided to try a counter top version. If needed, fully prepared to return to Amazon Prime. This unit pulls 11” of vacuum and I rounded it up. Other units can pull up to 30” Hg. This is a big difference. Not necessarily a show stopping thing. I measured it with two different vacuum gauges. I am an engineer and know how to measure. A career was made out of measuring. I wanted this unit to do well. I did. 11” Hg verified. Foodsaver doesn't reveal how much vacuum their units pull. They say it is proprietary? I measured. We will keep the unit. The set of features allow both auto and manual operation, so you want that. You can control the amount of vacuum with a manualpulse. A unit with internal bag roll storage is very efficient. The accessory is held in one hand. Zip type vac seal bags can be used. The accessory has a special place for collecting liquids when used for a zip bag. Nice. The main unit has a liquid catch tray. It's essential. Must have. Why? Liquids should not be sucked into the vacuum pump. It can happen. Cleaning is a nightmare. Liquids can get into the pump circuit. I think we can live with less vacuum power. It is adequate but barely. Our sealed bags tend to hold up during the time we normally use our vac'ed foods. We have had precious wild game buried in the freezer for over two years. All the seals were intact. A durable seal is important. The balance of power is more on this later part. The air in your storage container needs to be kept out with the help of a vac sealer. You want enough vac power and sealing ability to do that. Over a long period of time. There is a balance between too much and not enough. Bag leaks over time is a common complaint about seals. That is a failure. There are many reasons for this. The vacuum can work against itself. How? Ambient air pressure is always trying to get in. There is a hostile environment inside your freezer. There are competing forces. Too much vacuum can cause a problem. The balance of power is not good. The variables are vacuum amount, bag quality, and the user. A chinchy bag or a mediocre seal can be created by too much vacuum. It is a matter of physics. The better manufactures understand the balance between amount of vacuum, bag design/material, and seal. They want to find a balance. The better manufactures match the variables for optimal cost effective performance. I think it is wise to stick with quality components that work together. Until you verify other bags will work as well. That balance should be respected. This unit was put to work. 30 lbs of large, whole shrimp were processed. The unit vac'd and sealed dozens of bags from Foodsaver rolls. We cut the quart and gallon sizes. Some are larger than the gallon. Also, note: We used several bags from Foodsaver. The demo bags that come with this unit were about an inch shorter. It makes a difference. Shame on Foodsaver! I would like to have more than 11” of vacuum. We tinkered with the settings to make sure we got the max vacuum we needed. We didn't get a shrink wrap result for 3-4lb roasts, but we could still see a bit of air space left in. The shrimp were sealed well and lay nicely in the bags. Happy. We think it will do. The 5 year warranty helps with peace of mind. The bags are well made, no reason for concern, but I can't speak to the longevity of the seals and bags. We sealed like pros. Time will tell how much air matters and how well the seals hold. This was a lengthy review. Hopefully not too technical. Hope it helps you. Inquiring minds want to know.
Press the button for the moist food setting to seal wet and dry items. This kitchen appliance is easy to clean and maintain because of the Patented Removable Drip Tray. Food should be kept fresh longer. The PowerVac Vacuum Sealer helps keep food fresh in the freezer up to 5x longer than ordinary storage methods. VERTICAL STORAGE: You can save valuable countertop space by storing the space-saving unit vertically in the kitchen. There is less bag waste. You can get the most out of your FoodSaver bags with seals with less bag waste. There are custom settings for wet and dry items. There are 2 custom settings. It is important to dry and moist to make sure an airtight seal is achieved. A built-in bag alignment tray ensures correct bag placement every time and is easy to clean.
👤The FoodSaver model V3230 was in use for about 6 years. It was not reliable, loud, and awkward to use. The side lever became useless when it twisted off. I'm writing my first review of a product I've bought on Amazon because of the new replacement model, VS01.50. The model is small, quiet and reliable. I am very happy with it. There is a Look no further if you are considering a vacuum Sealer.
👤The vacuuming is not good. It sucks but it is on a timer. It wasn't sucking out all the air. It would suck everything I packaged for at least 6 seconds and then began to seal right after, but it did that for both small and large packages. The seal is good but the parts need improvement. The product would be perfect if it was great. I noticed the lid only clicked on the left side, but the right side had no locking sound, so I don't know if it's supposed to only lock on one side. But it did. The vacuum doesn't suck as good as it should because of that. I would have kept it if it had a good smell. It is easy to use. I hope they fix the product so I can try it again.
👤It took a half hour to get it to lock. One second away from putting it back in the box to return, you realized you should not use the close leaver on the side. It worked well, but it was expensive.
👤The series was received 3 days ago. Can't close it. I called the HELP phone number and was told that they couldn't answer the phone because of Covid, so I went to the website. I will return this item because it doesn't help me. Very disappointed.
👤The right side of the lid does not lock when I use the food saver. The machine needs to work if you push the lid down on the right side. You can't tell the locks from the button on the right side. The right side does not make a clicking sound when the left side locks. The food saver machine is very slow to seal and vacuum. Don't buy this machine.
👤The other brand of sealer we owned had a single lever lock on the lid, but this one had a lock on either side that needed to be pushed down in order for the lid to seal. My wife was unable to lock the lid properly, so this was returned without use.
👤This is the first time I have saved food. I was very excited about it. It's easy to use and operate, even for a novice like me. The directions are clear and I could easily trouble shoot what I did wrong after a few failed attempts. I don't know if I will use it every day or if I will put all my leftovers in it. I need to hold the bag straight while operating the machine. Adding a power strip will make it easier to organize my counter space. I have concerns about the unit. I have to press very hard. The plastic is so hard that it makes noises. It is possible that I am the one doing something wrong as this is my first food saver. I can admit that. It adds to the cost of making bags. It comes with an additional roll and a few pre-made ones, but you need to make your own or buy more after that. I like how they are re-useable, however at some point they will need an additional purchase. I've used it many times and I really like it. It will make bulk purchases easier and it's worth the effort. I took a picture of the pancakes we made. I don't have to buy pre-made pancakes for the kids because they can have them quickly. I hope my machine lasts while I learn to use it better.
Marinate in minutes instead of hours. The air in the food is removed and the food is replaced with a liquid. The ideal solution is to equip and organize your freezer so that you can cook and serve fresh food instead of freezer burned food, which will probably end, as you will be able to save money and time. A simple electric plug in design with a control center on the top panel and soft touch digital buttons along with led indicator lights is easy to operate. The NutriChef vacuum seal system has two modes to choose from, which will give you the best possible preservation for your food. The NutriChef Vacuum Sealer was subjected to specific laboratory testing to increase food shelf life. A full starter kit includes the vacuum sealer, air hose, wine cork, 5 medium vacuum bags, and an extra long vacuum bag roll. A complete bundle for a new era of cooking.
👤I've always wanted one. I was under the impression that it had buttons. The buttons are just as sensitive as the keyboard I'm using on my phone to write this review. I've always wondered how these devices worked. There is a small learning curve of about 3 attempts, but it's just to get an idea of how much of a gap you need between the bag and the end of it. The instructions are straight forward, but you need a little more space. It's the last thing you want to do, and it ends up not being enough space. It takes one failure to perfect the seal. There are a few combinations of items being put in so that's good, but there are also two options on seal. The "Vac Seal" is a seal that does not require a vacuum and can be used without one. There is a The combination of vacuuming and then seal is called the Vac Seal. The key note is that it will make the vacuuming sound and then silently seal. The seal button should be turned off after the vacuuming sound stops. I opened it before I realized that the seal happened after the vacuuming sound. I'm that dude, but it's not in the instructions.
👤I was looking for a reasonably priced tool for this job. The Nutrichef is small and about the size of a dozen eggs. It's lightweight. Straight forward. Generic bag material is inexpensive. I owned it in 48 hours. I've put together a dozen food items. The seals are holding something. The bags I purchased from Amazon were for about 16c/foot, which is about 10c per bag. This is less than half of the price of FoodSaver bags and less than half of the price of Waring bags. The only thing that kept me from a five star rating was 1. It can be difficult to get the bags in the right position. They will not seal properly if you don't. The setup shown in the photo works for me. The end of the bag should be in the "Vacuum Chamber". 2. The instructions aren't clear because they weren't written by an English speaker. drawings to show where to put the bags would have been helpful. 3. The bags can take up a lot of space in the freezer because they are bulky and need more material at the closing end. 4. The process of making each bag takes close to two minutes. It would be very easy to design a unit that is semi-automatically aligning the bag material, which would make the whole process much faster. I can help you with that. Time will tell how well these work at food preservation and how long the unit lasts. An update will be posted later. It's the same thing. It's not a good thing It's not a good thing Is that true? There was an update on 3/28/18. It's the same thing. It's the same thing. It's the same thing. It's the same thing. It's the same thing. It's the same thing. It's the same thing. Is that true? I write a lot of reviews, but they are usually sober. This item is great. I buy extra and freeze it because I have trouble buying things in reasonable sizes. I thought the NutriChef would keep things longer. I have found a lot of extra uses for the sealer. It is very good. You can make the juiciest chicken salad on the planet by taking a skinless chicken breast and cooking it at 160 for 40 minutes. I found that I could vacuum seal salmon burgers without flattening them. Again, sous vide to the desired temperature, then a fry at high heat. I can take them to my girlfriend's house if I freeze them. Butchers dry out meat for weeks. The price triples for the aging. You are likely to have spoiled meat if you do this in your fridge. You can enjoy the benefits of aging in a vacuum-sealed bag. I made up a large amount of mashed gingered carrots and caramelized onions. These jobs can take a long time to cook. I was able to prepare serving sized bags for the next time because the NutriChef sealed them up. The carrots can be reconstituted with water to make a delicious soup. I'm surprised how much I like it. My rating went from four stars to five.
The starter kits include a vacuum machine, 12 pre-cut seal bags, a power cable, a vacuum tube, and a user manual. You can stretch your dollar. Food can be preserved in the freezer for up to 3 years and still taste great. The produce in the fridge will stay fresh up to weeks later than in days. There is more slippages. The built-in roll cutter makes it easy to create custom-sized bags without using scissors. It has dual heat seal strips. It's guaranteed to reach an optimal vacuum level. The 5-year limited warranty is on top of the high quality of the FM2100. Attach the handheld sealer with the accessory hose included with your machine to start preserving food in the refrigerator and pantry. There is a vacuum seal roll, pre-cut vacuum seal bags, and accessory hose.
👤After owning the original Tilia Foodsaver for nearly 20 years, I broke down and purchased another Foodsaver. I decided on the FoodSaver after looking through hundreds of reviews and other research. I'm not disappointed either. I was looking for a machine that was light and portable, but one that had a powerful motor that could pull the bags out. You can place a roll of bags inside the machine and cut them to the length you want in a record time. I'm an avid hunter and fisherman and I intend to get every penny out of this machine, just like the last one. I've only used this machine a few times, but it has worked well. The company doesn't make a lot of money on the machine itself, but they rely on expensive bags to make money, so a tip for the one reading through the review. Make sure that the bags you find are compatible with the Foodsaver machine. Make sure that you cut your bags long enough so that you can use them multiple times. If you cut your bag too small, you will find that it will be too small to reuse again. Please like my review if it helped. Thank you.
👤It no longer vacs after 10 months of occasional use. The air will be vacuumed out. I have to manually hot the seal button. Spending more would assure a reliable product. I didn't know this particular seal came with a 5 year warranty. I explained the problem to the company. They asked for information on the place of purchase. They are sending me a new one.
👤I gave this product one star because it malfunctioned after I bought it. I was unable to return it because I missed the return time. I contacted Food Saver and they tried to help me fix the issue over the phone. They replaced the malfunctioning machine. The new one works well. I call it standing behind your product.
👤The seal component stopped working after only 2 months of occasional use, after we purchased this product in November 2016 We contacted Foodsaver and are still trying to get the problem solved. It takes days to get a response from them. If you count on customer service to resolve a problem, you'll likely be disappointed.
👤Easy to use and 5 year warranty are the best features. "Moist" will not always seal. "Dry" works well if you freeze meats first. We found that using kitchen scissors works but cutting "square" is harder than we thought. Our old Foodsaver did not consistently seal, so Foodsaver 2100 is worth the money so far. The Assurance 4 year warranty says they only pay after the manufacturers warranty ends. Foodsaver has a warranty of 5 years. There is a waste of $29.99.
👤The heating element stopped working after I used it 6 times. I expected this product to work for a few years after I paid for it. My old one lasted 13 years.
👤I was excited to start using it after reading all the reviews. The vacuum became less effective after about 10 uses. Either it vacuums forever and then stops, or it stops and never seals the bag. I can press "seal" and there's still air in the bag. I wish I had not spent so much money on it. There is a I had ordered the food saver brand specific bags as back up and was expecting to love them.
A built-in bag alignment tray ensures correct bag placement every time and is easy to clean. It's easier to plan a meal when food is protected from air and freezer burn, and you can save time shopping for groceries on busy nights. Simply add food to the bag, insert the open end into the machine, and it will take care of the rest. You can stretch your dollar. Food can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 years, and it will still taste fresh the day you seal it. It's possible to enjoy leftovers in the fridge weeks later. Not just for food theft. You can use your vacuum Sealer to store liquids and creams when you travel, protect important papers or photographs from water damage, create your own refreezable ice packs, and much more. It is simple to clean, thanks to the patented, patented,removable drip tray, which collects any excess liquid and debris that may result from vacuum seal, helps keep countertops clean and is dishwasher safe.
👤Don't buy it. After a few uses, it stopped pulling the vacuum. The return date expired because we did not use it often. We called the manufacturer and they said they would send a new one if we sent it back. The cost to send it back was $30.00. Really? Food Saver should pay for the shipping with a 5 year guarantee. We owned a Food Saver vacuum Sealer for over 20 years. I thought this one would be up to the same standard. I was wrong and disappointed. Don't waste your money. Better products are available. Don't make the same mistake as we did.
👤Couldn't turn on, got one. Returned and got a new one. The one blinks as if it is overheating, but has never been run. I'm done. Normally, this brand was great.
👤This is my first vacuum cleaner and probably my last Foodsaver brand. The one touch vacuum and seal button does not work. I have to manually stop the vacuum and press the seal button if I want the bag to stay open. I have to wait a few minutes and try again when the vacuum stops before it's finished. Buying products in bulk is not possible with this method. I can only seal one or two bags in 30 minutes. So not nice.
👤I work stupid hours and am a single 30 year old female. This food saver has changed my life. I had to go through the drive-through at 8pm to eat my french fries and chicken, but I was too lazy to do it. I bought a food saver. I wanted the manual style to be in control. I vacuum sealed my pantry, fridge, and freezer after I got it. I used to store chicken breast in single freezer bags and pull them out after a week to see ice crystals. I don't have ice crystals anymore, and nothing tastes like I took it out of the freezer. I vacuum pack deli meats so they last long enough for me to get through all of it, vacuum pack for salads, reseal my bags of chips, and vacuum seal my leftovers into single portions so that on busy days, I can pull them out of the freezer or fridge. This has saved me a lot of money, and has made me less likely to go to the grocery store.
👤I didn't get a vacuum Sealer for 15 years because I always got discouraged by reviews that said they didn't work or were difficult to use. If you want the air to get sucked out of the bag, you have to position the edge of the bag in the middle of the little channel. I tried to lay it across the channel so that the air could not be drawn out through the channel. If you overfill a bag, it will work perfectly. The stuff in the bag will sometimes compress so that it doesn't think it's getting all the air out, but you can manually press the seal button to interrupt its struggles. Resealing things like bags of chips was one thing I only remembered to do a few times. It works on some materials. I used this to store dry-aged meat in the freezer. I did the same with it. I didn't think I'd use it much, but I end up using it a lot.
A built-in bag alignment tray ensures correct bag placement every time and is easy to clean. The food saver system in the freezer can last up to 3 years and still taste great. The produce in the fridge will stay fresh up to weeks later than in days. The bag maker is an express bag. The express bag maker reduces bag making steps by 50% compared to the foodsaver V4000 models, thanks to a second heat-sealing bar. The easy view vacuum window and open roll storage design make it more convenient to use. Led light indicators can be used to guide you through the vacuum seal process. Press the vacuum and seal bar to remove the air that causes freezer burn. It's to reach an optimal vacuum level and airtight seal with it's very consistent seal. The fm5200 is backed by a 5-year limited warranty. Smart technology automatically detect and switch to the correct mode to make sure an airtight seal is achieved. The heat seal rolls are easy to clean and maintain, and the patentedremovable drip tray will catch any overflow liquid, making this kitchen appliance dishwasher safe.
👤The new 5000 series was re-engineering by Food Saver. People who have been using Food Saver machines can get confused quickly. Let's talk about the changes, what's good about it, and one thing that is a little quirky. We are all curious about the quirky so let's get to it. It's very easy to install a new bag when the machine is open on both sides, you just slide a new roll in from the left or right and feed it through the front. You only have to do this when installing a new bag. You feed it through the front to the white line. It takes a little work. It's hard to stay on the white line when you close the cut off bar. So what it takes is to overextend it a little so it protrudes out the front a little, and then when you close the bar on it, it is exactly on the white line. It doesn't matter if it's on the white line or not, you want to pull it out from the front of the machine so you have the center lip to pull on. Don't worry about it being perfect. You will be fine once you realize that with a fresh roll you only have to overextend it the first time. That is quirky. The machine is great. 1) You are taking up less counter space with the upright vertical design. There are two more The bag roll exiting area on the bottom is where you don't do double duty like on the single cutter and seal machines. There are 3 more Lifting the bag that already has the seal on one end up to the vacuum and upper seal area will allow you to see the leading edge of the tray and know you have inserted it properly. There are four The advantage is that you are lifting the bag up with both hands, one on each side, and the juices will settle to the bottom and the air will move towards the top. The ones that are already resting on the bar are the ones that are being held up to it. The bag is instantly grasped, vacuumed, and sealed. It is very easy to use. There are five You get less juice in the juice tray, which means less emptying out juices. 6) Since there is no drop down door to deal with, you use less bag material since you can more easily see how much bag is spread out when you pull it out. It's clear so you can see it. There is a second setting that can be used if you want to seal a bag with dry or liquid contents. I bought it.
👤It worked well for about 2 months of intermittent use. I have had about 6 of these over the years and know what kind of use they can tolerate. The attachment hose sealer was my favorite part. It's perfect for cheese and leftovers. I didn't like the fact that the pump started to malfunction after 2 months. The vacuum pump was twice as loud and barely removed air. The work stopped. I bought the extended warranty through Asurion but am having difficulty getting it fixed. If it's within the manufacturers warranty, you're supposed to go through Foodsaver. I'm trying to get that resolved.
