FoodSaver® Regular Jar Sealer
Meets my Expectations
As of yet, I have only used my food saver for storage of Beef Jerky that I make. I find that the foods aver works just as it is supposed to. I am pleased that it meets my expectations. I give it an "Awesome" rating because my expectations are quite High.

Makes use of containers I already have
I have been able to use the jars on my shelf to provide long term storage for products I use infrequently but like to keep on hand. I find using the jar sealer easy and very helpful I just have to make sure the top is clean and the lid fits exactly.

Works if you are willing to mess around a little b
Concept is great. Product needs some quality conttol. First time I used it the rubber seal came off when I took sealer off jar. Every time I seal a jar, I have to make sure seal is close to being in place and may take several attempts to get a seal.

A little tricky.
The wide mouth jar sealer works exceptionally well. However, the regular mouth jar sealer is not so good. I have found that if I put two lids on the jar and vacuum it it works almost every time. The extra lid will come off and the one next to the jar is sealed.

Great accessory for my Food Saver
We regularly purchase locally grown produce and the jar sealers are a great way to keep it fresh until we are ready to use. Fresh cut lettuce keeps up to 2 weeks and sometimes longer. I highly recommend this accessory for your food saver.

Necessary for food storage
I ordered this for my long term food storage. Anything that does not require refrigeration can be vacuum sealed either in jars or bags. With this jar sealer I can now preserve things in jars that are not suitable for bags. The product is well made and seals well.

This is a great item to have
I use mine to seal my jars that I put dried vegies in .. They work very easy Put on the jar push a button and they are sealed with freshness .. I really would recommend them to any one who likes to have fresh food. Great for our fresh vegies from the garden .

Regular jar lid sealer is a winner
I was able to fill my half pint mason jars with bulk nuts by using the FoodSaver regular lid sealer. The original lid sealer stopped working with my nine year old Food Saver with canister port. FoodSaver sent me a replacement, and it worked like a charm.

Once I learned a few tricks, I love it!
I really like my regular mouth jar sealer. At first, I couldn't get it to work. I followed a helpful hint, sealing with two lids, and it works fine. I regularly use my sealer to seal dry goods and for freshly-made juices that I intend to drink later.

Jar sealing tips
Sealer works great,but jars do not always seal, If you have that problem try warming your lids for about 10 minutes at 250 in the oven or toaster oven helps greatly,put lid on right away and they will seal better. Good product reasonably priced.

this is an excellent product
I have read that some people were having problems getting the smaller canning lids, that this product uses,
to seal. My husband found that if you boil the lids for just a few seconds this softens the rubber seal and they seal quickly and very tightly!

I was reading several reviews before I bought this product as I was worried that it wouldn't work without jumping through hoops such as using two seals, using two seals and puncturing a hold in one, pressing hard on the cap while you use it etc.
So I thought that for my first attempt I should just try it normally, no jumping through hoops, but I did put a little pressure on the jar sealer when I used it. (I do not have to jump through any hoops with my wide mouth sealer).
It worked just fine, however the inner blue rubber ring stayed on the jar lid instead of in the jar sealer. I was going to send it back immediately, but it is nothing to keep putting it back in as packing it up would be a pain.
I have only used it for short terms seals as I juice and I put some in the fridge sealed for during the day, so I do not know if it keeps the seal long term but it works fine for short term. I use my wide mouth sealer for long term bulk items.
I gave it a fair for ease of use because I have to keep putting the rubber ring back into the sealer.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

What a smart and inexpensive device to complement the Food Saver line.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
