Rated 1 out of 5Â by Nikki134 Won't seal
I am not new to food vac/sealers. I bought this one to replace an old one I had that died recently. Loved the styling of this one, as it stands upright and would therefore take up little space on my countertops. I read and reread the directions to make sure I was using it correctly, based on all the reivews of people who have had trouble using this sealer. Well, mine was no better. I wasted 8 bags trying to get it to vacuum and seal food. Returned it and bought the V 2450, which is a manual one that sits flat on the counter. Takes up more space, yes, but it works every time time I use it. Don't watse your money on this one. Get a cheaper, manual one.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Denbob This is a very easy to use product
I purchased this unit because my old unit was wearing out. I had read all the reviews and thought this one would be the best fit for me. It is very simple to use, it's lightweight to carry and has a very fast suction. The sealing process takes a few seconds longer then my old unit, but it also has a wider sealed area. I think I will be purchasing one of these for my mother. She has tried other units and found them to hard to get to seal. This one is so easy, all you do is push the bag up the track and it does the rest. Couldn't get any easier than this. I would recommend this unit to all my family and friends.

After having this model for a year with moderate use it doesn't seal bags that I cut to size. I also have to play with the pre made bags before they will seal and sometimes the seal isn't airtight which defeats the purpose. I'm very disappointed as this was an upgrade from a smaller version that worked, but only took small bags. I should have kept it. I'm going to call the company and hope they can do something to fix or replace it. What a waste of money on the appliance and bags if they don't.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by oodf Worst product I ever bought.
After returning my food saver two times, I thought I would read thru the comments by other customers. I didn't realize that SO many people had the same frustrating experience I have been having with Food Saver. My first one worked for a while then stopped vacuuming. I returned it hoping it was just a fluke. NOT! The second one was no better, I called customer service and they sent me new seals, still didn't work. Called cs again, told I have to wet gaskets to get it to seal better. Tried that. Tried that and tried that again, still no proper seal. It would work once and a while keeping my hopes up that now it will work. After 2 years, a fortune spent on bags, and freezer burn food I finally had it and took it back. Going to look for another brand, can't be worse. How can they advertise this product?
