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.

What I have so far work great for me!!!
I would like to buy more of the containers but do not know the actual sizes. Suggest that you put the actual dimensions (in inches) in the description of the products. Just calling it a sandwich, snack, or deli-pack does not give ME the info I want. As to those who can not get a seal with the accessories, I found the I was not getting the hose connection inserted completely into the socket on the machine. I couldn't put enough "twist" and push on it until started using a pair of pliers to do "grip" and push with. When I get some sizes on the containers, square, rectangle, or round. I will probably be buying some of them. Otherwise, I LOVE my Food Saver system...

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.

Gasket almost impossible to seat
The very thin gasket in the cover is larger than the channel in the cover in which it is supposed to seat. When you finally manage to get the gasket to seat correctly, and push the cover down really, really hard, you can get a vacuum seal. Further, even when a seal is achieved, it often doesn't last more than 3 - 4 days in the refrigerator.
With the flat top container, the top collapses under vacuum to roughly half the height of the container - maybe 6 slices of ham.
SUGGESTION: Please make a vacuum pack top for Mason glass food storage jars of various sizes.

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 will sound redundant, but I love these!
I have two of these, and two of the other bowls, and one set of canisters. These sets of bowls are limited in use only your own imagination.
Nuts left on the counter get rancid. Put them in one of these owls, such out the air, and put them in the fridge. They will last and last!
Put lunch's prepared veggies in them and suck out the air.
I make a protein ball with peanut butter and stuff, which becomes a shapeless blob in regular bowls. In these, air is banished and my protein buddies stay in the shape I rolled them into, and they last a lot longer, too!
The shapes of these dishes make them eminently portable; they slide right down into a messenger bag without a squeak. And they don't leak!
I'm budgeting for next year. I'm going to buy a set of these, or a set of canisters, each month!
