FoodSaver® Regular Jar Sealer
Regular mouth jar sealer works
Although we were prepared for failure, and indeed did have failure initially, we used the one-lid-up/one-lid-down to solve that problem.
So, we definitely recommend this product. We're only beginning to see all the possibilities.

The sealer I got to preserve dehydrated goods will not seal regular mouthed jars.
My wide mouth works great. I have to use larger jars than I want to and take up more space than I should have to because the regular won't do it's job.

Trouble with the sealer
I am disappointed with this sealer, every time i use it the blue rubber piece comes out, I can put it back in but it is inconvenient. I bought the wide mouth jar sealer at the same time I purchased this one and it works great!

Use Double lids!
I was on the site ready to order another regular jar sealer attachment when I decided to read the reviews. The sealer did NOT work. So I tried 2 lids, as suggested, and it works great now. I hope Foodsaver works on improving this sealer.

Does not seal jars
I have both the regular and wide mouth sealers. The regular mouth
does not seal any jar that I tried (brand new). The wide mouth sealer works great and I would recommend that to anyone.

quick and easy.
I use both narrow and wide mouth jars to vacuum seal everything from nuts to dried fruit. I can take out a little and vacuum seal the jar in seconds. Money and time savor. Sorry but I do not like using plastic bags.

Regular Size Mason Jar
The wide mouth sealer works like a charm.... LOVE IT! Would love the regular size one too IF the GASKET FIT!!! That's the problem. Until FoodSaver fixes the problem, that size will be useless and a waste of money.

I do everything I can think of to make sure the lid, mouth of the jar, and jar sealer are clean and dry, but this and my Wide Mouth Jar Sealer only work about 50% of the time. I've pretty much given up.

The jar sealer works so well. I mainly use it for cut vegetables. It is great. It keeps them fresh for a long time and I can use them when I need them. It saves me a lot of wasted, spoiled vegetables.

This product needs better instructions
The regular jar sealer isn't as user friendly as the wide mouth jar sealer. In order to get the regular sealer to work I had to heat the lids first otherwise they just popped off when removing the sealer.

We use it regularly.
With canning jars and lids, FoodSaver is an easy way to keep moisture out of sugar, salt, pastas and other dry goods. If you don't need or use all the jar, just reseal it! Simply, easy and economical!

Convient and easy to use
This is used for freeare jam or relishes and dried fruit or nuts. It is also used to maintain freshness of crackers. Previously, an entire box of crackers could go stale after consuming a handful.

Easy to use.
I like to buy things like chocolate chips, nuts and other such items in bulk and I divide them into 1/2 pint or pint jars and seal them with the lid sealer and they last great. I love this item.

The lids would not seal properly and would realese the vacuum.. I put a small amount of cooking oil (Olive oil) around the rim of the jar and now it seals and holds seal. works great.

Sealing canning jars
I love to use this for my garden herbs, citrus peels and seasoning. This keeps them much fresher than plastic bags or unsealed jars.
It is also a great way to recycle lids you have canned with.

I already have recommended it to others!
I tried the jar sealer the moment I got it with chopped nuts! What a great item for sealing so that I can stack the jars! I have told at least 20 friends about it and they wow'd the idea!

Works on standard jars, not jelly jars
It doesn't work on jelly jars, but works great on standard canning jars with the "hip". This size takes less space in my pantry. I store spices and herbs and other bulk purchases.

I had purchased the wide mouth jar sealer and loved the way the food in my jars stayed fresh. Wanted to get the regular mouth sealer. It is perfect!

Regular mouth jar sealer
Just got started in the canning process. Found this product to be easy to use after the first couple of tries, now I'm canning all of my garden stuff and making pickles for the first time

It has been the third one that i have had tried , the regular mouth does not work for me at all compared to the wide mouth that
works just fine . I will not recommend the regular mouth.

Have had unit for several months now. Worked as expected sealing all but one jar on first try. Using hints in the reviews of others, used two lids in this case and it worked first time.

Easy to Use
I like the Regular Jar Sealer for storing food in Mason jars. I'm storing some things on my pantry shelves & also liquid foods in the freezer. I find it very easy to use.

Works very well
I was nervous getting this with many negative reviews. I have the large mouth sealer that always works and the small mouth sealer works just as well. Great tool.

Worked at first
Worked great the first few times I used it. Now I can't get it to work. Won't seal. Very frustrating. I don't have any issues with the wide mouth sealer.

This product is a moneysaver
I love the jar sealer. I am a able to vacuum seal dry goods in jars and they last much longer. I had 2 of them that didn't work but this one works fine.

To keep it fresh
I use the small lid vac sealer to keep my 5 days of pre-made salad fresh, I just pop the lid, add Dressing, shake and dump into my salad bowl. to enjoy my lunch.

The product is good
I've been using the Food Saver for over twenty years. Like the comments from other customers, whenever I use the regular lids I always have to use two lids.

Very easy to use whether doing foods or crafts. Highly recommend one of both sizes for all your needs, I love mine.

Does what they say it will do.
I have vacuumed about 10 jars and only one required re-vacuuming. It is easy and quick to use. I have done some jars of liquid, oat meal, and rice.
