Well, after seeing how everyone on here vacuum seals all their goodies I figured I might as well get one for the things I create as well. After researching on here for a while I decided to start out with one of the Tilia original Foodsavers if I could find one. Everyone seems to be satisfied with theirs & I like the idea of being able to get replacement parts for it should the need arise. I began searching around without much success until a half hour ago. I had checked ebay & then looked at a few other things on there. For some reason, right before I was done I checked again & there it was - literally listed 6 minutes before. An original Tilia Foodsaver made in Italy unused with 2 rolls of bag unopened, a new regular mouth canning jar sealer & a new wide mouth canning jar sealer - with a buy it now price of $99 or best offer... I quickly made an offer of $75 & it was accepted right away. So............ I bought it & can't wait for it to get here so I can try it out.
