Rated 5 out of 5Â by DonnaMomma Awesome product
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.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Antoush8 Great, usable features
I've had a Food Saver for more than ten years but since we bought a second home and I couldn't do without a Food Saver in each home, we bought a second one,.
This is a sleek, space saving unit which incorporates all of the items I wished my old one could do (even if I hadn't put it into exact words); like the handheld device built into the unit to seal wine bottles; the ability to use zip-lock bags for foods I would partially use and reseal the rest; being able to seal in freshness of delicate foods and not crush them. I think you can see that I love this unit, I don't know how anyone can run a household efficiently and economically without one!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Terri1234 Does everything I expected!
I love this new version! I had one from way back in the days when they first came out with these and I used it so much I burnt out the motor. The new and improved or the latest and greatest are just awesome! And I love the choice in variety or colors and features that are specific to what you want to use your Foodsaver for.
My use is mild to heavy so it used quite frequently as we are health nuts. So it definitely serves its purpose in my life throughout the entire year! Buy one, you won't be dissappointed. And pretty much any version will be a great choice, it just depends on what you want it to do for you specifically. Good luck and enjoy!
