FoodSaver® Bottle Stoppers
I am impressed!
I bought a less expensive vacuum sealer a while back. It used inexpensive poly film rolls for sealing meals. I worked- kind of. Bags often did not vacuum tight, frequently leaked. I thought it was a problem with the method. I saw this ad for the Food Saver brand. Checked online for ratings - very good. My local Costco also carries the unit, and I find 95+% of the time that the hardware Costco selects and sells is high quality. Got the sealer and was very impressed with the way it works. Only down side is that it does not work with the refill rolls I purchased for the cheapey. Not sure if the life extension of the sealed packs match the ad hype, time will tell.

I have loved all their products so far.
I don't know how I did without the food saver before now. I live alone and when buying food, they don't sell just one of anything., so I breakdown food products and freeze them. when I make a meal I make tv dinners out of them. They seem to last forever in the foodsaver bags and containers. So far I've used the bags, 8",11" ,Portion size, and liquid bags. I used the bottle stopper and cheese grater. Great for storing in mason jars with the jar sealer. I make ahead Salads in a jar and they last for over a week. I make up 6 or 7 at a time. I have even frozen soups using the mason jars and jar sealer.
If anything ever happens to my food saver machine you can bet I will get another one. GREAT PRODUCT!!!

ease of use with great benifits
The mere fact these products keep my oils fresh and my food fresh for long periods of time with todays prices is a given. I would be lost with out my various Food Saver products and intend to purchase more before spring. I recently created a few dishes and used the bags that hold liquids in as marination bags, they worked excellent. I then used them to hold the leftovers that also had liquid aspects and they are holding up very well. I don't know how I could live without them.

This product preformed as expected.
We ordered the marinating container for small portions. It worked great. But consider the amount of what you want to marinate. I cook for 2, and that will make servings for 2 or 3 if they are Tapas or small servings.Just think how much product you wish to marinate and decide how much you will need to serve. Remember' your FoodSaver has the ability to vacuum seal as large an amount as you may want to marinade foods and seal them. It works even if you have to make multiple seal bags.

Great on Vinegar Bottles Also!
I use red and white wines in my cooking and so they are not used as often as wines served for drinking. Freshness was always a big problem. Now with the Bottle Stoppers, the wines stay fresh much longer. I also love different vinegars and they have much the same problem. The good thing is that the bottle stoppers fit most of my vinegar bottles. These Bottles Stoppers are a major money saver for me and I am thrilled that Foodsaver offers them in their line of great sealing products.

Gray stopper softer; white doesn't hold vacuum.
I have purchased both the dark gray stoppers and these white stoppers from this website. The GRAY STOPPERS WORK GREAT, AND I WANT TO BUY MORE OF THEM but I can no longer find them on this site, so presume they are not available. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THESE WHITE STOPPERS. The material is hard and they are absolutely useless. The gray stoppers are soft and flexible, and they maintain the vacuum beautifully. These white stoppers are totally and completely ineffective.

I bought these several years ago for Valentines for my Hubby with a few bottles of wine. He likes a glass of wine with dinner, but was tired of the varfiety of boxed wine because he's the only drinker in our house. When I saw this I bought it for him and since then he's joined a wine of the month club and bought himself a small wine fridge. now he can have the kind of wine he likes and he doesn't have to throw most of it away. They work great!

Easy to use, better than any hand pump equivalent.
We used to use a hand pump bottle stopper to save our leftover wine. They worked reasonably well. We recently opened a bottle and only had 2 glasses. I used the food saver stopper to save the remaining wine. We would normally try to drink the bottle the next day with our old stopper, otherwise the wine would start to turn. We forgot about this bottle and drank the rest of it 3 days later. It tasted better than the night we opened it.
