I took the time to empty my freezer and repackage all of my frozen meat, fruits, vegetables and breads. It is so worth it as recently frozen bagels already had the beginning of freeer ice inside of ziplock bags I had packaged them in. I repackaged, vacuum packed and labeled everything and it actually takes up less room in my freezer.

I enjoy this model so much more than the automatic start model Foodsaver. It is easy to use and get started. I use the "seal" function a lot and it is more convenient on this model. On the automatic model, almost 2 inches of bag material was wasted, as I had to insert is so far into the machine to trigger the unit to start to seal or vacuum. I can seal this one right along the edge of a bag. Good replacement for a unit with more "bells and whistles", that I bought at Christmas, but never really enjoyed.
From bulk buying to saving
We started with the larger model and loved it. Once the 4 boys moved out we didn't have as much need for the big one, but still liked saving money by buying in bulk. I can also put together several crock-pot meals at one time and vacuum seal them to last for months. Great space saving size too.
This unit replaces a previous similar system that we just wore out. It worked for several years, so we certainly got our money's worth, but the seal was no longer secure. It is so good to have a dependable machine again. I think the system has improved since the last purchase and I love the little jar sealer. I'm still dreaming up uses for that!
Design Change not good improvement
Bought this for our daughter. It's the latest for this model. Food saver changed design slightly from one we bought 2-3 years ago and we don't like it. System is much more sensitive and you have to be incredibly careful in how you hold bag while it's sealing. Also if you don't set bag just right in tray, it won't vacuum and seal properly. Way too sensitive!
This model should be discontinued. Don't get it.
I have used and loved FoodSaver vacuum sealers for over 20 years. This one was the third one I'd purchased, and it was the WORST. The description says it “seals a variety of foods” but fails to point out it does NOT seal wet foods. Most of my vacuum sealing is wet foods, such as produce from my garden that I've blanched. I had to go back and purchase another model that has the “moist” setting, so this purchase was a waste of money.
Don't Buy It
Horrible. It sealed the first 2 bags pretty well. Every bag after it either did not seal at all or left air in bag, which completely defeated the purpose for buying it.
I am having no success with this sealer. I have the exact same one in my winter home and it works like a charm. I bought another one for the summer home because of the size and reliability of the one I already had, but if I would of purchased this one first, I would never have bought another. Very disappointed.
