Thanks in advance
Years ago I was going to the Food saver. I was at sears and there Seal and Save was Identical and $20-$40 cheaper. Had it now and use it regularly for probably over 15 years. Cost was about $120. If I was to buy one now I'd go with something more industrial but to old to invst in something I don't need. Buy what you can afford but don't count out the lower models. They all use basically the same bags.
I got a Food Saver model V3230 at walmart. Only $90 and it works great. Only had it about 6 mos, but so far no problems. After a Sams trip we process a lot of meat for the freezer, and after an offshore fishing trip(going again tomorrow ) : ) we portion and seal the filets. Everything we've taken out of the freezer to cook looks as fresh as when it went in. Happy smokin', David.
I have had a FoodSaver GameSaver Deluxe for a couple of years. Last night I only managed to package two packs of sausage and ten packs of pancetta before the over heating issue became such a pain I quit before I got to the bacon. Granted I was doing double seals but that doesn't seem like a lot to me.
I have a low end Food Saver.
About 5 years in, it is still going strong.
It will require a 20 to 30 second cool down time between bags if you are doing large batches. But that is about the time it takes me to mark the finished bag and cut another off the roll.
Be certain to check with Lisa for rolls at half price. Cheaper and more versatile than buying bags. And the best customer service you could ask for!
Good luck and good smoking.
I've gone through three foodsavers, can't remember the models, but I just ordered another one to replace my second, which is the same as the gamesaver deluxe. I ordered the gamesaver deluxe to replace it with, since it has a 10 year warranty. I've only been getting around 5-6 with mine, so if it lasts ten, I'd be happy. If it doesn't, hopefully they stand by their warranty.
Was going to go for the titanium to get the lifetime warranty, but I decided my credit card has seen enough action so far.
