I KNEW IT !!!!

 

I knew you'd find a squirrel with a chainsaw!

The grill is just icing on the cake!

 

 

I'm hiding all 3 of my chainsaws right now!

Not taking any chances!

That Teddy might look all cute and cuddly, but that little bushy-tail better tread very lightly to not "Awaken the Sleeping Bear"!

And I am quoting "Soroku Yamamoto" only hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

 

 

I just looked to see who's thread this was.

I was going to apologize for stepping all over it, but it seems it is yours. LOL

LOL! Plus I need a new printer for my work, so maybe I'll treat myself to a nice one for Christmas!!


Ok squirrel. Here's an option. Just go buy another one, get home unpack it and put the other one in it's place, all wiped down and stuff. Go directly back and chatter up a storm at the customer service counter and demand a refund. Ya think they don't just take returns and put them out for resale again.

freezer, as for christmas cookies.. hmm.. I know the short bread I am used to crumbles if you look at it wrong so I wouldn't try it myself haha.

I swear I haven't been drinking the items to the left of the sealer. That 99 Bananas liqueur and the dark rum are for bananas foster. I wonder if I can make that and seal it and put it in the freezer. Hmmmm....

 

 

Hi Squirrel,

 

I got mine about the same time at the same place and it went kaput on me. It seals but it doesn't vacuum anymore. The accessory hose won't vacuum either. Has anyone run across this and been able to fix it? Or is this one of those "works good for a year and quits" kind of appliances?

 

I've used it quite a lot for cheese, bulk sausage, and most anything else I want to keep from getting freezer burn. (I love the containers which I use to help infuse my blue cheese dressing ingredients.) I will replace it, but was wondering if I can take it apart and fix it myself.

 

Anyone?

I have had the same problem, 1st one had to return. next time i just had to pull the plug open it up and give all the contact surfaces a serious cleaning.

 Now i clean the sealing sufaces real good after every use.

I will offer a limited recommendation on Lisa's bags.

 

Price is right, they work great, and her customer service is sterling.

 

My only reservation is that they haven't been in the freezer long.  So far no busted bags, tho!

 

I would also add that the shipping is fast, and we have very easy access to Lisa for questions or problems.  She is great to work with!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Hi All, I too have the food saver cacume sealer and I bought the canning jar attacment for both the wide mout jars and the reg mouth jars.

 

I took a really small nail and put a very small hole in each of my lids, and then put a piece of metalic self adheasive tape over the hole, With the tape, I folded back a small bit on one end back to itself to make a pull tab.

 

I keep my bulk bought seasoning in the jars, when I want to use a spice, I pull the tape back to open that small nail hole, this breaks the vacume seal, I then open the jar etc. This prevents me from bending the lid for reuse.

 I then press the piece of tape back down to close the hole, and re vacume seal the spice in the jar.  Give it a try, It works great.
