This is a great sealer! It's got a strong vacuum motor and an excellent sealing element. It seals fast and there's no fight whatsoever with getting it to vacuum and seal. If you've owned other sealers that are in this price range you know what a fight it can be to get them to work properly! But not so with this sealer, it's perfect. It also comes with a very generous amount of bags. What mine didn't come with however is an owner's manual! Luckily I've owned a similar sealer in the past so I was familiar with how it works and I guess I can get the warranty info online. That was the only problem with the entire purchase, in every other respect it was flawless. I highly recommend this sealer, it's a great product at a great price!

I am very happy with this purchase, the machine is easy to operate, does a great job of sealing and pulling a vacuum on the bags. Comes with a lot of extra bags too. Great value.

I like every thing about this machine, except that it takes a lot of force to hold it down when sealing. It also sometimes takes a while for it to seal, so I use my forearms to keep the lid down. You must put a large amount of force on the lid, for it to start. Then you must keep the pressure on it, until the seal light, and the hands free light comes on together. It does a great job sealing, and the price was great compared to other ones I looked at. I just wouldn't recommend it to someone unable to put some muscle into it.

I bought this for a fishing trip to vacuum seal fillets of trout. Previously had a food-saver which finally gave out. This was far less expensive. Seems that all of these things have somewhat questionable durability and this review is after using it extensively for a week. The unit is larger than I was expecting with a bag/roll storage bin in the back as well as a cutter. When used - it pulls a vacuum and then a little light goes on indicating that you no longer need to press the lid down. The vacuum holds the lid down. There's also a side camlock to hold it shut. Works well. No freezer burn. If it holds up for a couple years - I'll be very pleased.

this is the first vacuum sealer we have owned or used... it works, it's that simple.. if you can read directions, you can operate this sealer with success... if you are having trouble it's because you haven't read the directions.. one common mistake is not leaving 3 inches of room before you seal the bag.. it's so easy our 7 year old boy is doing it by himself... it's cost effective so what else can i say??

Product does have a little bit of a problem with very moist vegetable items, but great for regular foods like meats. Little cord wrap posts underneath are a waste. Base is too thin on bottom to withstand and pressure; so if you wrap the cord around them, do it slowly and without pressure or they snap off.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

instructions were a bit sketchy till i slowed down and reread it. love that it came with all those extra bags. i had a piece to break off where you wind the cord around some plastic pegs underneith in the storage area. otherwise, i have used it 3 times and find it easy and simple to use now. have not had it long to give a real review but it looks promising

I'd have to agree with the other positive reviews. The price was right, the reviews were favorable. I've used this machine many times now, it works wonderfully. Like others mentioned it came with a variety of extra bags. The motor is strong, it seals as it should and I'm extremely satisified.

Purchased the VS230 Seal a meal to vacuum pack emergency food supplies. Havent tried using mylar bags but plan to. It is easy to use (and I am not electronic savvy) and came with several additional rolls of bags. Rated the durability only a two star because it is a recent purchase.

I have been having a great time with my food saver, have saved many many things. If I were to get another one, I would spend just a little more money and get one that is more automatic. But I can see where it is going to save me a lot of money.

Comes with a ton of bags, which if you price is probably worth the price you paid for the whole package. So far seems to work great. Easy to use!
