FoodSaver® Sandwich & Snack Containers 2pk
Sandwich and Snack Container
What a letdown! These containers are not as pictured. I was pleased to think Food Saver was again providing the containers pictured. What a disappointment to open the package and find a smaller version of the flat Deli Container. It will hold a standard sandwich or a small amount of snack food but is not what I was expecting or will use a lot. I like my original containers, the one pictured and use them a lot. I would like to see them available again. I have no problem recommending the product I received, quality wise it is fine but not what I wanted. Just be aware you will not receive the product pictured and it does not hold as much.

Love these containers & use them daily for us & our parrots, found them exactly as described. We feed mostly raw food to them from the farmers market so can now keep everything fresh for much longer in the refrigerator now. There is a slight learning curve about the seal in the lid, but once you figure it out it works perfectly every time & doesn't seem to be wearing out either. At any one time have 10-12 in use with fruit & vegetables, bacon, coffee beans, nuts, cheese, lunchmeat, leftovers, marinades, thawing meat. I use the bags for freezer & pantry storage measured out in 2 cup portions to conserve storage space. Our FoodSaver system is working great for the whole family.

Good idea, badly designed.
I have other types of vacuum units that I ordered from Foodsaver that were well designed and stacked well in my refrigerator. However, these canisters will stay stacked as long as you don't apply a vacuum but doing so pulls the lid down and the bottom up to the point that the mechanism that would normally hold the units in place no longer touch with the result that they are unstable and the top canisters constantly slid off and fall on their sides. Needs to be redesigned to correct this before I can really recommend them.

Great for "Live aloners"
I save a great deal of money by NOT throwing out so much food. I still cook as I did for a family but would freeze dinner portions in plastic cups with lids. Then throw them out for 'freezer burn' NOW I can make huge batches, divide into dinner portions put in Food Savor and I can eat whenever "I" want to.and don't throw anything out! I keep my lettuce and cold cuts in the Boxes and I love that I can make "kits" by using the split FoodSaver bags
Now if I could find a bag to keep my bread fresh without smashing it. :-)

What vacuum seal?
I am new to Food Saver and ordered a number of the storage food containers. If anyone knows how to get a vacuum seal on these let me know. I have searched everywhere for better instructions or videos and there are none to be found. You put the stem in the container, seal it and then take the stem out which results in loss of the vacuum seal before you can put the plug in. These are brand new, clean and closed completely so please don't tell me to do that. Any other help is appreciated.

I bought a FoodSaver and one of these containers came with it...so I decided to order some more and they just arrived. They are fantastic! Fantastic price for a 2pk! They are a great size for a variety of items. We put some soup in one, salad in another and both items kept really fresh for several days in the fridge and throughout the day after they were packed in the lunch box. I will probably be ordering more and different sizes as they become available. Very happy.

Accessories came and I love them!
My order came yesterday and I can't wait to use my new accessories. I got some large jar and regular jar sealers for the Mason jar and can't wait to start filling then and vaccing them!
Cherries will be first and I want to preserve the freshness until I use them in a few days. I know I can trust the Food Saver system to be competent at that.
And my 2nd and 3rd set of sandwich/ snack containers. These work FANTASTICK! I don't eat all my food I cook right away and I love being able to keep leftovers a little longer and know they will still be fresh when I eat them in 5 or 6 days. No more yucky stuff! YAY! (No more throwing away food. Double YAY).
And of course a spare accessory hose cus you never know right?
And I can't wait to use the container with the cheese grater. 2 1/2 qts. Awesome!
I'll be ordering bags and such next, before the BOGO is over.
Food Saver system is the best in my book and I have tried others. Thank You Food Saver!!!

Easy to use and convenient.
It's good quality hard plastic, decent size and easy to use. I use it with the handheld freshsaver. Came with an adapter that fits and easy to use and easy to open and re-vacuum. Just wish is had a more regular shape on the inside. It's sort of indented in at the bottom, not flat. Also wish there were other sizes. But in general worth it and handy to have around.
