I so LOVE this FoodSaver machine! It is money well spent. I love the convenience of cutting the bags - no more scissors!
Seals ASAP and easy to use. Wish I could buy one for everyone!

I upgraded from a re-gifted basic version, and I'm sorry I waited this long. We take a lot of salads for lunch, which has been a pain in the butt to make fresh salads daily. First week, we made our salads Sunday night for the full week, and Friday's salad was just as fresh as Monday's, using the mason jar attachment. Easy to use, love the cutter, I'm making straight cuts for the first time, along with the roll storage built in. Also used it to seal some chip bags left over from a party, serves a dual purpose of keeping them from going stale, and keeping everyone out of the bag for a handful at a time.
Can't wait to marinade some meat.

I have to agree with the reviewer who found it poorly designed and difficult to operate. The problem is having to insert the soft bag into a narrow, blind slot until it finally engages just the right spot to start the sealing process. It reminds me a lot of the famous George Burns comment regarding shooting pool with a rope. We'll be returning this and have ordered the type where the sealing surface is readily accessible and out in the open. In fairness, it seals and vacuums well once you eventually get the bag worked perfectly into position inside the blind slot. On the other hand, the easier to use model does just as well with no hassle and frustration.

Lack of vacuum capability and did not seal the bags properly. The majority of the bags were left unsealed in the middle. I had to go back and reseal half of the bags. I will buy a seal and go back to using my old FoodSaver.
