The game stays fresh longer. The GameSaver Vacuum Sealing System removes air from specially designed bags, then applies heat so it seals meat, fish, and poultry to prevent freezer burn and spoilage. Heavy-DUTY CONSTRUCTION. The power processes are high- performance. Up to 80 seals or more is faster. The design of CONVENIENCE GRAB and GO. It is convenient to power up and preserve from autos, boats, and RVs with the built-in storage compartment for the Fresh Handheld Sealer. The design is ragged. Large rubber buttons make it easy to operate in the field or in the kitchen. Includes a heat seal roll, pre-cut bags, accessory hose, and a 12v DC cord.
👤I like this. It's my first vacuum food saver. It works well. I wish I could seal liquids properly, but I've read that liquid bags are not for things like soups, but "juicy" meats, etc. A lot of people have left negative reviews about it failing to vacuum and seal after a long time, and thus calling it cheap Chinese plastic junk. I can't attest to the other types of failures, but if your machine stops vacuuming when you hold the lid down, then your gasket might be a problem. The whole machine is not garbage or scrap. It's well made, but it's reasonable that some parts need to be replaced. If you go to foodsaver's website, you can find the model of your vacuum sealer and find the gasket. I bought 2 for $6 with $3 shipping, and they run about $3 gasket. If it came like this, or the gasket failed too soon, I'm sure you'd contact the company. They would help you. It's better than a $200 machine.
👤The worst thing about this is that it was designed for 80 consecutive seals. The reason for this to exist is to be heavy duty, however in all aspects it comes short. The system over heats has a very slow motor compared to the cheaper models from Foodsaver, and it takes more time to seal a food item compared to the cheaper models from Foodsaver. The locking mechanism is a major flaw, the first unit failed within a week, the second unit got wobbly after two weeks. I have older models that have lasted for several years with no problems and this will fail on all models after a reasonable use time. The reason for 2 stars is that I love the built-in cutting feature, but for every other function that this provides, please do yourself a favor and skip it. Amazon has a great return policy so you won't have to worry about it.
👤My first two vacuum sealers worked so well that I bought this one for my husband. The other Big Game saver had a defect that this one does not. He did not look at it until a few weeks ago, so he passed the return warranty. We can't return it. Don't buy your product, check it out. We had the other two that worked well, so I wish we had that. I didn't use it because we don't need it.
👤I had this done a year ago. It works the same way as I do with vac sealing 25 lbs of meat, sausage, and smoked fish at a time. I have had other sealers that have overheated. You have to wait for a while. I wrap my meat in one layer of paper to keep it moist, a trick I learned from a meat cutter. I am very particular about the quality of my meat, so it sounds wasteful to some people. It prevents the bags from being torn by bones during the vac process.
It's perfect for food storage, freeze dried meal, sous vide, gardening. Extra Longer Reservation to Meat, Fruit, Vegetables, and Other Food is provided by the 80kPa Vacuum Sealer Machine. There are two modes for dry and wet food. The vacuum power can be chosen according to your needs. It could be tight from 75 kPa to 85 kPa. It can vacuum seal moist food like soup. This is a feature that other machines couldn't achieve. The food sealer machine can be used at home or business. The roll cutter is integrated into the commercial type sealer. The vacuum seal can vacuum seal 3 bags of food at the same time. It can work continuously for 100 times and only take a break for 5 minutes. The first vacuum Sealer with Inflation function can vacuum seal dry and moist food, but also inflate a vacuum bag filled with delicate food like potato chips. Change the direction of the tray. More convenience is brought to your daily life by a multi-functional vacuum sealer. If your vacuum does not vacuum seal tight, you need to re- install the silicone ring. The cover should not be closed tightly when not in use. The digital touch button control is on the top panel with the indicator lights. You can start vacuum seal when the indicator lights stop flashing. Cut the bag, seal one end and vacuum seal the other. Pressing down the small lid makes it easy to close the cover. There is a specific exhaust hole on the top of vacuum jars. The vacuum sealer makes no sound when you seal a bag. There are 10 big vacuum bags, 10 medium vacuum bags, and 1 vacuum seal bag roll.

👤I have used this item every week for a year and just purchased another one for my mother. I love this machine!
👤A piece of junk. I had to repair parts that had fallen off. You can't understand the instructions that are written. It works the same as my tired old one that costs one third of the price. Don't buy this inferior product.
👤I don't like this seal. The bags get stuck when the elements get too hot. The degree isn't as variable as it appears. You can't do a lot back to back. It says commercial. It is not capable of handling more than a few in a row without getting too hot and melting the bags. When using the slicer, you have to re thread the bag roll through as it falls back behind you. The reason it got 2 stars is that it holds larger bag rolls. The last one only handled small rolls. We got a FoodSaver at Walmart about 2 1/2 years ago, but it failed at the seal. We did enough volume to just upgrade, but we thought it would be better to just replace that. We chose this because we wanted to get a long-term winner. I'm very disappointed. The plastic one that cost half as much did a better job.
👤Needed this to arrive today and it did, but the package was missing the cord, instructions, and vacuum bags. I found a cord from another appliance that worked, but the seal wouldn't seal completely, so I had to use 3 tries to get a solid seam. I don't think it was a new unit. I could have ordered it used and it would have had all the parts. I will be able to rate the performance once I 800-273-3217 I had to seal up the meat. I used the moist setting, but it didn't seal the room. I had to use other bags since the roll of bags was not in the box. I don't think it's worth the money.
👤This product is the same as described. The most important aspect of these machines is their ability to extract the air from the bag. It makes a nice seal. I had no problem figuring out how to operate it. It indicated that it was quite. It is not loud, but it is not quite. This model is really nice.
👤It takes a while to figure it out and could have been better designed for ease of use. If it were easier to deal with, I would give it a 5 star.
👤The vacuum seal unit is very nice. I like that it can cut a large roll of bags. A good seal and a powerful vac motor. The instructions need some work, but the unit is great.
The pack of food seal bags has different sizes and is 10 feet long. The food storage bag is 60 feet long. Food can be kept fresh in the freezer up to 5x longer and in the fridge or pantry up to 2x longer. Automatic bag detection and vacuum seal can be done in two easy steps. 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.
There is a material that is non-toxic. It's safe for storing raw and cooked food. All 'Clamp Style' Vacuum Sealer Machines are compatible with the universal design. The bags are 200 Count 8 x 12 Quart Size. Food grade material is great for storing raw and cooked foods, it's also cook, freezable, dishwasher,Microwave, and boilable safe. Food shelf life can be extended 3-6 times. Air and water proof materials prevent leaks. Heavy Duty and Puncture Prevention is designed with Food Grade PA+PE Material, 3.5mil Front Panel and 4milTextured or Embossed Back Panel for maximum freshness.
👤It works with all my vacuums.
👤Every year, I catch fish in Alaska with these. The bags are perfect size.
👤I was skeptical when I saw them. I gave them a try. Wow! They are great. When I bought the Food Saver brand rolls, I no longer had to make a bag first. It's much easier to use. Even with a 10 year old machine, it works great.
👤Most animal parts can be found in the8"x12" size. I cut some of the bags in half to make two smaller bags. I need to keep a good seal for up to three years in my freezer since I have to butcher the whole animal all at once. I have had a small percentage fail during that time, and I think it's because the bags are starting to wear out. I have used other brands and found them to be less prone to leaks than the others and the bags my former butcher used. I wrap the piece in a piece of plastic deli wrap first if I am going to seal it with cut bone.
👤It seals well. There is a It looses the vacuum seal after a day or two in the fridge or freezer. Will use them as storage bags for non essential items. I thought I had found a great value.
👤I recently purchased this product and they are better than the ones I bought in the store. The price was definitely worth it, I bought a quart and a quart.
👤I thought buying these would make things easier for me. I used them with my vacuum Sealer. I had to swap out bags 3 times in a row because they wouldn't seal. I thought it was just a coincidence that I had gotten through a few of them already. I sealed a few more. I put 4 in each bag so they weren't overstuffed. I switched over to my roll after I got a 4th and 5th bag that wouldn't seal back to back. I was debating whether to give them another chance or trash them all. I had gotten 9 sealed and put in my freezer. I decided to keep them and try again. I opened my freezer the next day to look for something else and found 9 bags with air in them. The seal broke after being frozen. I sealed up more than a dozen with the other off brand roll and they were all holding up. I have not had any issues with my previous bags, and I always buy something off-brand on Amazon. These are not worth the money.
👤The bags worked just fine after I tried them. I wish they had an area for labeling. I have a Seal-a-Meal. The bags have an opaque side with a waffle texture and a side that's almost transparent and smooth. The transparent side should be placed against the heating element. I read some reviews of users having problems with the bag and decided to try this method. I sealed these bags using this method three times. There is no area for labeling. I hope the marker on the bags doesn't come off.
The stages of the process are monitored by lights. The bag roll holder collapses for easy storage when not in use. The chamber size is 12.2"W x 13"L x 3.8"H, perfect for portions and cuts of juicy meat, soup or sauce. The outer size is small and sleek for a household kitchen. The design on the STAINLESS-STEEL BODY is elegant. It is easy to clean. The food is visible through out the process. The chamber and seal bar are suitable for regular (flat) vacuum pouch sizes of 6x10, 8x10, 8x12, 10x13, 11x16. It can prevent freezer burn and air leak. Easy and flexible control. You can either set vacuum time yourself or let the machine do the job for you. No maintenance is needed because the Dry Piston Pump inside has passed a durability test.
👤I have been shopping for vacuums for a year. International shipping on many of the models I found looked like it would be more expensive than the appliance itself. This one caught my eye because it was presentable, large, and small, and it didn't require me to get rid of any of my existing appliances. The price was reasonable, so I decided to buy it. It was triple-boxed and placed in packing paper. I read the entire booklet right away. I understood what the manufacturer was saying despite the several errors. I connected the power cable to the seal bar and put it in place. My first attempt was unsuccessful. I realized that with the lid open, you can adjust the seal time. I increased it to four. I believe the error E01 on the LCD happens when you don't gently press the top down for a second or two when it first starts to seal. This was my fault. I changed it to 4.5 because I knew from my first attempt that I needed to increase the seal time slightly. The setting you need depends on the vacuum bags you use, but 4.5 worked for me. I used water and alcohol to make soft ice packs, something I wasn't able to do with a vacuum cleaner. It is almost grilling season, and these are nice to keep food at a safe temperature. I would prefer the machine to be a little quieter. The vacuum pump is loud, so I won't be using it late at night, but I'm happy with my purchase. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to vacuum seal items that aren't easy to seal with an inexpensive consumer-grade seal.
👤The machine started throwing error codes after it sealed 20 bags. The seam in the gasket blew out. It's either a bad gasket or bad materials. We were excited about our purchase and it's too bad. The second one we got worked well for a few months, but the heating element fell into the machine. It is impossible to seal or vac. Waiting to hear back from the company.
👤I bought one for a friend. I bought one for myself because he loved it so much. It worked well. There were a few things to learn, like how to increase the vacuum pressure and make sure the bag wasn't creased. I had cold smoked a few chickens and was trying to vacuum them up. They wouldn't seal. Not even throwing codes! The c-clip that held one of the electrodes up for the seal bar broke in half when I lifted it. The machine has been hit by it. I'm not sure if I could pull it up with pliers, but there's no chance I'd find c-clips around me. This is late at night. I don't know what they need to make. I searched all over Wevac for a number to call or an email address to send a complaint but have found nothing. The machine is sold as commercial. My wife and I clean it every now and then. I should not be left shut down after less than 5 months of intermittent use. Save your money.
Includes a heat seal roll, pre-cut bags, accessory hose, and a 12v DC cord. The motor is 935 watt. There is a power cord. Bag roll cutter can be used to create vacuum bags. The extra heat seal bar is for bags up to 15" wide. The vacuum-pump can deliver up to 28 HG vacuum strength. Automatic mode with simple one-touch operation and manual seal mode allow for more vacuum pressure for soft foods or delicate objects. The stages of the process are monitored by lights. The bag roll holder collapses for easy storage when not in use.
👤The 3500 is a machine that has every option there is, it is built like a tank, heavier than most vacs, and will suck a golf ball from a garden hose. Very powerful. It has a port on the lid for the food saver hose to plug into for your canisters and mason jars, just a beautiful idea. I think this will last the average home owner a lifetime. It's easy to get parts. It's not fun to get the protective plastic coating off. This is a big upgrade from the FoodSaver.
👤I bought this item because of the reviews and the story I read about it. It started acting up about 2 weeks after purchase. The bag was not being vacuumed all the time. The problem became constant after 3 months. I tried to call the company to speak to a technician, but it was a failure. The company could not be reached by phone. I decided to purchase a different product after I was told to test the unit in different ways. I was glad I did.
👤I have had this unit for 3 weeks and it took some getting used to. You can purchase a different model on Amazon, but you will need to hold the hose in the port while using it. It's possible to use a larger bag but it's hard to open the bag and close the chamber because of the height of the seal chamber. The chamber lid needs to be closed completely in order for the latches to work. The screws are small and don't have a magnetic philps screwdriver. A new screwdriver is needed. It comes with a protective film on the steel that you will want to remove, but some will be hard to get off, because the handle for the chamber is on top of it. Unless you are using a heavier bag than 3 mill, the heat seal time should not be more than 3 seconds. The unit dose comes with a set of replacement seal tape. The strips keep your bags from sticking to the heating elements. They also had two extra cutting blades. The Vacuum Sealer Maintenance Kit 08-0910 is not on the owner's manual list. There is a sticker on the unit. The kit is out of stock at the time of this review, but is available on the MFG website for $35.
👤The seal is broken. The power button won't turn green. It didn't work well because of the special bags. The power button is broken and the bags are incorrect. I had to pay for shipping to get the machine fixed after I called Weston for warranty help. This machine is less than a year old.
👤If the seal timer is set too long it will cause the seal to catch on fire and burn through the bag.
👤The machine is heavier than I anticipated. It will last you a lifetime, it is well built and all parts are commercial grade. The power of the vacuum is really high. A bag of 20oz. is needed for ten seconds. T-bone steak is completely pressed in. The perfect seal can be achieved by changing the timer. The width of the opening is large enough for most vacuum bags. The noise is understandable. I don't think it's a design flaw. This is not a portable appliance as per weight. The elephant is in the room. The price is what it is. It is worth every penny.
Food can be kept fresh up to 5x longer than traditional storage methods with this professional grade vacuum sealer. Saves time and money by using the PrimalTek 15” Commercial Grade Vacuum Sealer. Keep the air out of your vacuum seal bags to prevent freezer burn, increase food freshness, and reduce spoilage. The fully automatic electric vacuum sealer is easy to use.

This innovative vacuum seal system has built-in bag storage, cutter, and cord wrap. The double seal bar monitors heat for a perfect seal while the bag positioning guide keeps the bag aligned.

Their tools are built to process meat. You can create and preserve the boldest, natural flavors to share with your family with the help of the products from PrimalTek.
👤The machine seals as many bags as I want. The machines used by other manufacturers require long wait times between bags and over heat to seal a few bags. This is a great time saver when packing many bags in a short time.
👤The people with food saver went from good to terrible. I've used many things, but this is the best I've ever used. So far, I'm very happy.
👤Their bags are also great. Make sure you press down until you hear a click on the front bar and you will get a nice seal.
👤It didn't work out of the box, but the replacement did.
👤I've used this once and sealed an item and let it set in the freezer for a month, it was full of air and I don't think I'll use it again.
👤An exellent unit is worth the extra money so far. I went back and forth on this unit. I'm really happy I went with this unit after seeing the weston in the store. The double seal really makes a difference, and the construction is nice. It does sous vide andMarinate bags very well. I felt a new bag every 30 seconds and processed 10 chickens in a row. The fishing season will be a big test. See how it looks after a year. Interested to see how unit warranty works. It would be great to have a website that would allow you to place an order. There is a warranty card and a customer service number.
👤I do a lot of wild game and it works better than the other dealers.
👤We have owned other vacuums and love what they do. When the last one gave up the ghost, I decided to find something more commercial. I can't say enough good things about the PrimalTek. It's like going from a cart to a vehicle. The dual dc motor is more powerful. The setting is moist. The seal double bar is great, but I don't believe it's mentioned in the description. The seal function seems to seal through greasy liquids consistently. I have seen and used vacuums.
👤The product did not work when it arrived.
1 x vacuum tube and 1 x vacuum appliance are included. Please let them know if you have any questions about the machine. They will give you a satisfactory solution. The strong vacuum has an extra powerful double 28 L/min pump and motor for heavy duty use, certified commercial performance, analogic vacuum gauge, and pulse function for delicate food items. It is easy to use with self-locking buttons and a dishwasher safe liquid-proof tray. A viewing window for correct bag position is part of the functional design. A specific cycle for "Quick Vacuum Marinating" (12 minutes in the Magic Vac Marinating Canister), professional vacuum seal system, includes pulse function to use with vaccum bags or food saver vacuum seal rolls for food. There is a vacuum storage guide, a bag cutter, and a connection tube for vaccum accessories. Quality design and function is made in Italy.
👤I have been wanting a vacuum cleaner for a long time. After a successful deer and bear hunting season, it became obvious that I needed something better than the FoodSaver I bought at the store. The package was well packaged. The box it was in was heavily padded and had styrofoam around all four corners. It comes with five bags, so make sure to buy more. A representative from the company said that any vacuum sealed bag will do, including my leftover FoodSaver bags. There is a direction booklet in the package, as well as the power cord, tubing, and bag cutting tool. The directions were easy to understand. I had just finished butchering a black bear and needed to get it in the freezer when I received it, so I was anxious to see it. If you've worked with vacuum sealers before, you know that they are slightly different and that you need to become comfortable with how it works, in order to aid the machine in getting rid of as much air as possible. You learn to stack steaks side by side in order to eliminate larger air pockets. It takes some experience to package ground meat with a vacuum Sealer. When I sealed my first roast with this new sealer, without doing anything other than pressing the auto seal button, it sucked every visible air pocket out, sealed perfectly, and impressed me more than I thought it would on my first try. I wanted to list pros and cons of this product, but I can't think of a single thing that would make it worse than the actual machine. In order to close the lid and lock it in place, you need both hands to press down on the opposite corners of the lid. I use a one-sided lever on my FoodSaver, which can be done with one hand. That helped when one hand was greasy with bear fat. I am going to have to get used to it. The machine requires two hands to open the lid. It was obvious that it requires two hands to open and close it because it is a better machine than my FoodSaver. The seal of the lid is tighter, and I believe that this will make the machine have better seals. I think that the heavy duty nature of this workhorse is what led to the design feature. It has a variety of ways to vacuum and seal. Depending on whether you are sealing liquid or dry things, you can cater your vacuum and seal. I believe I will be using the pulse option a lot with meat in order to have more control over the amount of air pockets that I can push out of it. The window on the top of the machine makes sure that your bag is placed over the spot you need it to be for perfect seal. I like the fact that this comes with a small manual bag cutter instead of a lever that you use to cut your bags. It's very easy to use and allow for more control over your bag sizes. It's like a letter opener but with a sharper blade. Within 3 hours after unboxing this machine, I successfully packaged and sealed an entire BEAR. The seal bar can sometimes get overheated, so some seal bars require you to give them a break. I didn't experience this issue with this seal. I didn't have to wait for the bar to cool down. It was up for the task when I was ready to seal my next bag. I assumed that the time for vacuuming would be longer, but it was shorter than I thought. It was fast, but I didn't count the seconds. The pressure gauge on the top of the machine lets you know when the machine is ready to be opened. I was able to get an entire bear into my freezer with the help of this machine. If you need a workhorse, the price is worth it. In some cases, I would prefer a chamber sealer over a vacuum one, and the difference in price is minimal, as chamber sealers are generally more expensive than vacuum ones. If you are only looking for a vacuum sealer and not a chamber one, then this is definitely the one for you. The machine's sturdiness leads me to believe that it will be able to help me with another busy deer and bear season.

👤I chose this vacuum sealer based on the positive reviews. I tried to get it to vacuum. I followed the instructions and did not have a vacuum. It's going back. So angry!
👤I have used it for a lot of things. So far, so good. The instructions that came with the machine are very minimal so it is helpful to read the instructions that came in the email from the seller that suggest putting a rolled up paper towel at the top of the packing for wet things. The paper towel doesn't take a lot of space and it seems to help juicy items. I was able to vacuum seal fish. It's too early to tell how things will be after the thaw. I'm not worried. The result will be related to the product that goes in it. I don't think I wasted the bags doing that because of the short learning curve. The front edge of the machine is closer to the sealed edge, so paying attention to that can save a lot of bag material. You should not have a problem if you figure out where to put the bag. I like that I can just take it out of the cabinet and use it immediately. It was very quick and easy. I like the built-in bag cutter. It makes the flow go faster.
👤I used this machine 4 times. I tried to use it today, but it was too heavy. It's too late to return it to Amazon. Hopefully the manufacturer will read this and contact me, I was very disappointed in this item. The manufacturer contacted me and sent me a new machine. This one works well.
👤I was very pleased to see that the canister hose is neatly stored in the lid, the 5 bags were included, and that the bag cutter has it's own storage place inside. The vacuum, seal and canister vacuum options all work well so far. It's hard to close, but it's necessary to make sure it vacuums and seals well. The old no-name food sealer/vacuum I bought second hand for about 12 years was not very good, but nothing lasts forever. Hopefully this one lasts as well. The old one was quite heavy, but this one is much lighter. I haven't tried the new one yet, but it looks like it will work. The attachment seems to match. I'm happy so far.
👤I added this device to my arsenal of food prep devices. The jury did not agree on this unit. When I hit the seal, the vacuum went off for a few seconds. My older one only seals. Sometimes a light tap is all that is needed when I lightly touch the buttons. Not consistent. There are too many buttons. The older unit has seals, vacuums and stops. There are 7 buttons on this one. I have yet to use any of them. I wouldn't buy this unit again for the price. The older unit was more than half the price. I would have paid more for a better product. I have vacuum sealed food for 25 years. This is the third time I have done this. I have experience vacuuming wet and dry foods, fresh and frozen foods, clothing, breakable items, and more.

👤I have had the same FoodSaver model for over two decades. I needed to replace the FoodSaver that I had so I started looking for a newer model. I thought this model might be the one that has improvements to my older model. The model made vacuum sealing foods more time consuming than my older model, but it does require less counter space to use, which is a plus. My first project was to package basmati brown rice that I cook in bulk for multiple meals. The bags can be made in advance. The process used more roll bags than my old one. The seal was about 1/2 inch below the surface. There was more waste of the bag as another 1/2 was needed to get the machine to sense it, and it took more time to seal the pre-made bags after filling them. - The same problem was encountered by this sealer. It takes time to cool off before you can make another seal. I found that some of the bags had air in them after they were sealed. This is not a problem that I had with my old sealer. I decided to return the vacuum seal because it made the job harder and more time consuming and the seals did not hold up. This was a deal-breaker for me and I wouldn't recommend it. I hope the review helped you.
👤First thing. I've been using different types of vacuums for decades, but this is my first automatic one. I use the Sealer for both cheese and meat. I get the large cryopaks when I buy meat. My first use of the FoodSaver was to purchase a chunk of Boneless Ribeye weighing almost 20 pounds and cut my own steaks for less than 6 dollars a pound at the local grocery store and to get a brick of sharp cheddar cheese. I buy my meat and cheese in these quantities. There are pros and cons. It works well with bags from other manufacturers. Purchased two rolls. It didn't have any problems with the seal and only a few times had problems with the vacuuming. Has it? The vacuum port is handheld. My favorite feature. It works great with vacuum bags. The battery operated vac pump was half the time the batteries had died. I put a block of cheese in a bag and vacuum it up before putting it back in the fridge. No more hard spots on cheese. Put the bag in the slot and wait for it to grab. My old clam shell had to make sure the vacuum port was in the bag. There is a lot of the bag. It takes a long time for it to suck out the air and seal, so it's not possible to double seal the bag. If you do large batches, it gets annoying fast, and the seal element seems to be overheating and shutting down the unit after 3 seals. I used to make a bunch of bags and fill them with vacuum seal them. Make two bags, fill one, vacuum seal it, make a third bag, and continue. This way you only use it twice in a row. As you fill a bag and vacuum it, it will cool down. The hand held vacuum has a valve in it, which is my favorite feature. Most of the time you won't realize the valve is closing when you vacuum. I was vacuuming a bag waiting for it to suck more air out but the valve had closed and I had not realized it. I'm wondering when it will end. The only way to get this valve open is to turn off the machine and then use the attachment to open it. I'm happy with this model. I like the automatic feature of this and have used it for decades, but now it sits on my counter, so I use it more. My biggest issue is that it is slower than my old one and it is more prone to overheating, but for occasional use it is fine. It doesn't use much of the bags. I purchased two 50 foot rolls at a very reasonable price and they worked great without the cost of FoodSaver rolls. They don't fit into the bag roll holder/cutter, but for the price difference, I can live with it. If you are using the handheld attachment and wondering why it doesn't seem to be doing its job, you should check the open valve. I bought this a few days before I went meat shopping. I kept the box, but I never do. If it wasn't up to snuff, I could return it. I'm keeping this. The handheld portion is the selling point for me, even though it's much slower than my cheaper one. Excellent/Perfect... Get more use out of it. Yes.
We know you'll approve of the quality of their plastic vacuum seal rolls. Save money by keeping food fresh. Enhanced heating wires and a motor are used in the POTANE vacuum sealers. While other barginbrands use small heating wires and cheaper motor, that's why they ensure a 2-year no-hassle return guarantee and 5-year warranty.

The sloping top design prevents juice from being drawn out while vacuuming. It makes sure the vacuum bags are fully used. ETL was tested and certified. Safety is their number one priority and the POTANE vacuum sealer is certified for compliance with applicable product safety standards.
👤I decided to go to a higher end unit after going through a Food Saver for a few years. I read a lot of reviews and felt that spending more doesn't always mean better performance or longevity. I never heard of Potane before I started researching vacuum sealers, but I took a chance on the Potane VS2690 because of the 5 year warranty and moderate price point. I'm liking this machine a lot. The 4 vacuum preset works as advertised, but I like the feature of the manual vacuum mode, it gives me total control of when the bag is sealed, which is something I didn't have before. The 5 year warranty gives me peace of mind, even though I have no idea of the life span of this unit.
👤The original FoodSaver brand was replaced by the POTANE vacuum Sealer. There are many vacuum sealers on the market. I needed to do some research. The process of going through the reviews was difficult. Trying to get reviews that are legit. I decided on the POTANE Vacuum Sealer. The FoodSaver had 2 modes. Hold the start button until the Foodsaver stops. The large mouth jar seal adapter can be used with the same press and hold button. There are many options on the POTANE Vacuum Sealer. I can either seal a bag, vacuum or auto mode. The just seal option is what I like the most. The last 10 feet of the rolls of bags could not be used with my old FoodSaver. The only way I could use the whole roll was to seal the begging of the bag. Roll it back up if you Seal the other end. I now have the ability to modify seal strength to suit my needs. Make sure you press both corners down until they click. If you don't do it, the sealer won't work. Don't keep the Sealer with the locked corners. The heating element will be affected by this. The machine is great. I can't emphasize enough. Most of the negative reviews were due to people not following instructions.
👤I like my new vacuum cleaner. The other two machines that I have purchased in the past 3 weeks didn't work and were sent back. You will wonder why you didn't buy this one first. I use it to save space. I am very happy with my dog.
👤The moist and delicate features are what I love. The air can be vacuumed out without damaging the food. I really appreciate the option because my seal a meal did not have it. You can stop the vacuum at any time if you want to crush things like potatoes chips. I know it says not to. It works well to seal frozen berry packages after you make a smoothie. It keeps them fresh and delicious. After use, we reseal our chip bags. It works great on them and has no problems with those types of materials.
👤The POTANE model stood out to me after reading reviews and looking at the warranties. If you are making bread, muffins, or something similar, it has 4 food modes. You can tap the soft mode. Your bread will not be vacuumed flat because the vacuum will not be as strong. Since I had meat juices in my pork loin, I tapped moist mode to keep the juices out of the meat package. The other vacuum sealers did not offer this option. The other cheaper models require 40 seconds between seals, whereas the POTANE only requires 20 seconds. Only this one has a 5 year warranty. The others only had the Amazon 30 day warranty. It is definitely worth it, even though it costs more. When I got it, I emptied my freezer and replaced all the items in it with new ones, and vacuum sealed them. This is great for cheese because it keeps meat fresh and longer. I buy large wedges of cheese from Sam's. They were cut into blocks and vacuum sealed. I can cook fresh imported cheese from my freezer. I am very happy with my purchase and choice as a first time vacuum cleaner buyer. The machine is a workhorse.
