Anyone have a FoodSaver? I have been looking at these and just dying to get one. There are several models available and I was just curious what you all thought about them.

I've had mine for over a year and love it. It sits out on the counter so it gets used almost daily. Mide is the V2440 model.
Yes, we've had one for 3 yrs. and enjoy using it. Alot of what we use it for is storing bulk items in lg. mouth mason Jars. The bags are ok, but can take up alot of space and you have to be careful to pre-freeze squshable items! I ruined some filets by not freezing them first and the vaccum sucked all the juices out. You also should cut a vent hole while defrosting to prevent the same thing from happening to anything else.
Hope this helps, would buy another one when this one dies :D . Good luck!Daun

p.s. the ad says it stores and cuts your bags but it does not unless they are throwing in a Store nâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji] Cut bag holder
Thanks ...I didn't know about these...
The other day I was at Walmart looking at some deep sockets when I noticed a gal walking up and down the aisle like she's looking for something. Being somewhat tool savvy, I asked her if I could help her find something. She said that she was looking for the Black and Decker food vac bags. I took her over to the kitchen supply area and showed her where the were at. She said that since they had "Black and Decker" in the name she thought they would be in the Tool department. :roll: :P
Finally went out and bought a Foodsaver. I love this machine and have had so much fun playing with it that I almost had to take a vacation day today. If you guys don't have one of these, you got to go out and get one. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
