Can someone please give me their personal opinions (preferably from experience) on which vacuum sealers are the best quality for the job. I need to start sealing and freezing leftover pulled pork (when there is any), fatties,logs, sticks, and of course assorted meats,poultry,etc. Also use for marinating would be nice but not crucial. Please help as there are soso many out there.

                                    Thank you!
My Foodsaver "V3485" was super cheap on sale from Foodsaver, and it works Great.

I have a food saver model 3880. I also don't package tons of meat. Usually leftovers or a whole cut of meat broken into serving sizes. I don't use it daily but when I need it it works.
I have used Foodsaver for years. I have always been very happy with them. When the time comes that I wear them out I always get another one.

They work very well.
The wife and I use the 3835.  Use it all the time to seal up smoked cheese and leftover smoked meats.  Refills are very cheap on Amazon as well. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
