    We have a Foodsaver Vac 550 that has served us well for a long time.

    It is a rather cheap model only cost about 40 bucks.

    A lot will matter how much you want to spend.

    I have a FoodSaver V3020 upright type. I like it pretty good. For what I spent for it and I got a lot of bags with it I am pretty happy. I've had it for about 6 months and have used it quite a bit and haven't had any problems.

    I did have some problems with the FS bags not pulling a vacuum. I bought some bags from VSU http://www.vacuumsealersunlimited.com/

    and have not had a single problem with these bags. They are Great and also less expensive than the FS bags. Not to mention the customer service is Wonderful and they are a forum sponsor!

    I'm on my 3rd unit now and my advice is to make sure there is an independent "Seal" button on it for starting a bag. Gave away the last one I had that was supposed to automatically hands free seal.
     
  5. What price range you looking at?

    :)
