Rated 3 out of 5Â by OopsOrYeah This product lacks all necessary parts as shown
I have ordered this item in hopes to use immediately but found the item was not complete as description indicated on the site. I called for assistance and proceed with requesting another as per the request of csr. However I received the second item the same way the first was sent and that is without the hose that attaches to the machine. Very disappointed after hoping it was packaged originally without the hose the first time around. I was proactive on the second one and ordered the part from another vendor the same day in order to complete the accessory and not loose time. The on site description should read hose not included.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mia22 Works well with handheld sealing systems, too!
I bought the wide-mouth jar sealer for use with my handheld vacuum sealing system (I wasn't sure it would work since the website doesn't indicate its compatibility with the handheld systems). You don't need a tube or attachment; you just place the mouth of the handheld device directly against the sealer. When the jar and lid are clean, I always get it working on the first time. The only difficulty I have had is in removing the lid from the jar. I use the spoon method, and I have gotten better at this over the past month. However, I have had a few spills when first starting out. This is a sign that the sealer is doing what it's meant to!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by bms29 Love this
And I wonder why it took me so long.
I've been using Canning Jars for a year now to put almost everything in. Nuts, Seeds, Amaranth, Quinoa, etc. but I wanted to buy some in bulk & wanted to make certain they would stay even fresher so I purchased the large & smaller jar sealers.
The 1st time I used this, I wasn't certain if & how it would work - Until a month later & I had a hard time removing the lid - because of the suction this sealer had given the jar.
(If you don't know, just leave the top lid on the jar - & not use the screw-on rim lid. - I do put the rim lid on just as a precaution - even when I've canned.)
Amazing is all I can say.

My last purchase was for a large jar seal for the vacuum lid. The old one lasted so long I truly do not remember the date. I have use Food Saver Vacuum system for at least thirty years and feel it should be a household item the same as a coffee maker. The price you pay for the system up front to accessories there after more than pay for themselves. Veggies, cold cuts and so much more last 3 to 5 times longer in the refrigerator as well as bagging meats for the freezer to prevent freezer burn and defrost as close to fresh for frozen meat weeks and months later. If you truly want to save ( BIG ) money you will buy any of these products.
