FoodSaver® Container Adapter
This piece does not work as well as the old one. The black end on the tubing does not fit into it right ( it broke off a piece on the black end). I found one of my old adapters( that came with one of my containers and the black end fits into it better even with it broke. I don' t know what I am going to do when something happens to the one I found because the one I ordered doesn't work. I should get a new black end for the tubing also. I love my FoodSaver, it has saved me a lot of money on food. But I am not happy with this piece.

Not what I thought it was and included in kit anyw
I thought this adapter would allow the new hand held to work with the old canisters. it does not. it allows the new hand held to work with the new deli canisters. Without it the hand held only works with the new bags.
Also, I didn't need to buy this as one was included in the kit with the handheld. It wasn't expensive so having two isn't terrible but if I had it to do over again I wouldn't have bought it.

If I had only known....
I purchased the small containers and this piece was not with it. I could not figure our how to use the darn thing until I ran across this. Once I got it all worked great. Now to not have to lug out the giant food saver machine to use it that would be great. I might have to make it part of my counter during school season. I wanted my fresh lunch meats to last longer. So far so good.

Didn't need it
Not finding adapters in the package with the food saver containers, I ordered these. Then when I opened the containers to wash them, the adapters were taped to the underside of the lid! Not a hint in the leaflet that served as an instruction manual that adapters were included. They weren't a huge expense, but annoying that I couldn't find them and then bought them unnecessarily.

Recent on line purchase
I was so pleased with the speed of which I received my order. I was easily able to locate the part that I needed - on line. The price was reasonable and I got my replacement part in a few days. This unit I have now is the best I've had and I use it almost every other day. From a Satisfied Customer.

Broke too easily and expensive to replace.
A very tight fit and the hard plastic cracked while I was trying to attach the tube. Only used it a few times. I ordered several of the deli containers which require this part so I do need to replace it. It would be nice if this was made from a more flexible plastic.

Purchased this to use with the reusable bags to vacuum seal lunch meat, deli cheese, etc. Have used it several times, and have found that using this with the reusable bags keeps lunch meat fresh for a longer period of time. Glad I purchased this.

Works on zipper bags
I'm not sure it is designed for zipper bags but I make it work. The containers I've bought that need it came with it. I bought the first one not knowing that but it is still handy. I just about have one everywhere I need one in my kitchen now.
