FoodSaver® 2-Pack Deli Containers
Vacuum seal doesn't last long enough
These containers work fine with foods that you eat daily or several times a week because you're constantly resealing them. But I wouldn't recommend them for storing foods that you use only once a week or less. I've tried mine for bacon and the vacuum seal never holds. Also, I wouldn't recommend stacking the containers in your fridge because if you slide them in or out, you could hit the flap on the one below, breaking its seal.

GREAT FOR LUNCH MEAT
I got so sick of throwing expensive deli meats away. These work great. and really keep meats fresh. I highly recommend.

in reading some of the reviews - I have to recommend to folks to test your products before you use them, make sure seals are correct, and your are using it the way it is intended. these are excellent products, when I got them I unpacked them, and used them IM with out using food in them to test the seal, after 10 days they were still sealed tight. excellent all the way around!

This works better than advertised
I love to buy bulk cold cuts and cheeses at Costco and this is the perfect storage container to allow me to cut and store the items for weeks without any sign of spoilage.
December 14, 2012
I like these containers, but they are the same size as the lunch/leftover containers and are just not big enough for most of the cold cuts I buy.
I have to restack the cheese and there is either too much room on the end (American Cheese) or the cheese doesn't fit without bending it (Swiss/Havarti/etc.) and that ends up breaking it. You can't put a slice of ham, roast beef or turkey in without folding it either. I end up using the resealable vacuum bags instead.
I would rather have something about twice the width and half the depth. But for freshness of the items put inside, they can't be beat.

Great container and love how they are so stackable
I saw these when ordering replacement gaskets for my Food Saver and thought they looked functional and affordable. I have used them for everything already from cookies to keeping leftovers. I love how quick and easy they seal, not to mention they stack so easily in the fridge. I often buy spiral sliced hams and package up 90% in the Food Saver freezer bags. Now when I thaw out a package of sliced ham (which is ten times better than any deli ham and 5 times cheaper) I put it in the deli container and it stays fresh for as long as I need it to. Before I often would have dried out meat which I threw out when stored in typical plastic contains, but no more! I'll be ordering more of these the next time I order more plastic rolls for bags.

I purchased a set of three at my local store but could not get them to seal with my old foodsaver-it was getting tired. Tried it with my new foodsaver and the seal is extraordinary and the containers are a nice size, not too small, not too big.

Works great for daily freshness or freezing. We can buy cold cuts and cheese ahead of time and freeze for lunches the next week. No freezer burn

Seal doesn't work
Save your money. I have 4. From the beginning, seals have leaked.Nice and tight for the first several hours but suction gone by the am. I have cleaned and dried, etc without improvement. Good idea, just doesn't work. The vacuum bags, however, are absolutley wonderful!
March 16, 2013
I wanted the resealable bag however,, Wallmart was out of the bags I wanted. They did have the Deli containers. What a disappointment!! I want something easy for my husband to use. He would never go through all the work they take to get a seal. Not good about closing bags, so I thought my problem was solved. Even I couldn't get them to seal until I went to your review sight. I ended up using the portable device. We shall see how long the seal holds.

Small size and Hard to seal
These containers are not only small, but they are difficult to seal. They are only large enough to hold a small salad, or half a dozen crackers. If they were a bit taller they would be much more useful. As they are now, if you have more than one 3" x 3" piece of lasagna to store, and that lasagna is more than 1/2" thick, forget about it fitting. The containers are also very difficult to seal. I had to try 3 or 4 times to get it to seal. You have to hold down all 4 corners at the same time to get it to seal. Hard to do when you only have 2 hands and one hand is needed for the handheld accessory. I do not recommend this product and I wish Foodsaver would have larger, "meal-size" containers that I could put a roast in.

Sealing, Design and Usefulness
These are very hard to seal. The lid is just too close to the base to fit well. You must hold it exactly so to get it to seal. Also, many times it will just not seal. Have returned 2 that did not work at all.
The interior has less space as the bottom is curved up taking away any usefulness for a thick sandwich or a loose meat pack from the deli. Further, the top is curved downward and retracts whey you finally achieve a seal. Just not enough interior room to be worth anything.
When you do get a seal, it will last a few days on the counter but not in the fridge. Just loses the seal either way. Short term use only.

Easy to stack
I love these small containers! Mainly because they stack and I can use the handheld vacuum. When the lid fits right, they are easy to seal. One of mine doesn't snap down very well, too loose.
The problem I have is it is too short, I wish it was taller. Also the handheld vacuum doesn't hold it's charge. If I'm lucky, I can seal two containers.
I received 3 of these containers with my second food saver.
Suggestion: make it taller and be sure it snaps on right.
Revamp the handheld vacuum.

Quick and easy to use for almost any age
The handheld vacuum size and weight makes vacuum sealing of the containers very easy for anyone use. Upon the first use of my food saver containers I put fresh cut veggies in and it stayed just as fresh as the day I put them in a week prior. An excellent purchase for my daily business needs.

Does a great job ...
Tried a set of these recently ... great product at a great price!

CONTAINER LID DOES NOT FIT & WILL NOT SEAL AT ALL!
The deli containers that come with the FreshSaver with green writing on the lid work fine. The extra ones I bought with grey writing on the lid are useless. These deli containers are hard to close or they do NOT close at all properly. If not closed right they will not seal with the vacuum device. To get them to seal with the vacuum, the lid has to be pressed down and makes a pop. Then, they are hard to open after the vacuum is released. Improvement needed on this product.

Loses vacuum very quickly
Just opened these up and tried them out. One unit loses vacuum in about 5 minutes (every time), and the other lasts bout 1 .5hrs.
Obviously I would not vacuum pack food that I only intended to store for that short a time which makes these into little more than standard plastic storage containers.
DO NOT BUY THESE if you think they will actually work as vacuum containers.

THIS PRODUCT IS A GREAT CONCEPT.
THIS PRODUCT IS A GREAT CONCEPT BUT SOMETIMES THE SUCTION GOES OUT OF THE CONTAINER BEFORE I EVEN OPEN IT. IT IS ALSO HARD TO TELL WHEN THE SUCTIONS DEVICE HAS COMPLETED SUCKING.
I AM DISAPPOINTED THAT YOU DON'T CARRY DIFFERENT SIZES OF CONTAINERS FOR SOUP AND LARGER PORTIONS.

May be the best value on FoodSaver's site!
I have three sets of these containers and each performs exactly as expected---deli meats, cheeses, the occasional leftover all stay much fresher, much longer. I have had no issues whatsoever with regard to sealing problems.
May 26, 2013
Ordered two sets. Each container holds a serving for two people. It is very easy to seal them. I have used them to freeze leftovers. They stack nicely in the freezer or refrigerator. I've just ordered two more sets.
November 24, 2013
This product is great for leftovers.
I love these containers they keep leftovers fresh for 3 or 4 days.
December 16, 2011
I finally gave up on this container and threw it in the trash. I could seal it, but the seal would only last a few hours. I have other Foodsaver containers that work very well. I'm not sure what went wrong with this one. I liked the idea of the container because it's more cost effective than the bags, but not if it won't seal correctly. I recommend either getting the sandwich and snack containers, lunch and leftover containers or the Freshsaver zipper bags. All of these work great.

Great for lunch meat
Our local Walmart has a deal on lunch meat where you get 1 pound of lunch meat and a 1/2 pound of any cheese for only $10. We have been using the deli storage container a LOT since we discovered this deal. It really keeps the meat and cheese fresh for a long time!!!

FoodSaver Deli Containers
Oh my After I got my paycheck I went out and bought the Food Saver and orders this product on Black Friday Sale during the holidays of 2014 bringing the New Years of "2015" I love useing this product after you Vac-seal on this it gives it a good fresh ham or turkey once you put your meats in the Deli Containers right after that then Vac-seal it. I cooked alot and once you seal your meats with your others rolls I do alot of Vac-seal the beef burgers and Sausages from frying Cat Fishes to Tilapia so I usally do the rolls and do the Vac-heat and Seal them with it.

Seals don't work
I got 4 of these, and the seals do not work. I threw them out. I love how they are flat, though, so if you R&D dept can make your other food containers flat for stacking, that would be great!

Looks good but doesn't seal for long
Have bought several of these and am not impressed. The seal doesn't hold. Only after a couple days the seal is gone. It's only with the containers that have the soft rubber seal. The button type on canisters work fine but these aren't good at all. Would not recommend this product!

Works great, reduces waste
I have been using my FoodSaver almost daily for about a month and have both sizes of jar lid sealers, several of the dishes in different sizes, and the zipper bags. When used as directed, all work very well. Be sure the dish rims and jars are clean around the top and lids are on straight, which is easy to do, and they seal easily. I like all these zipper bags and jar lid accessories much better than the bags that must be cut after every use. I especially like the zipper bags, which can be easily resealed after each use without damaging the bag at all. This multi-use ability dramatically reduces the cost. I'm a single person and love that I waste a lot less food, like cheese and deli meats, that I would otherwise not seal after every use because of the cost of the bags. I'm highly satisfied with the entire product line. I've used other brands and they can't compare.

This product does have great features.
I am amazed at how much longer our deli meats and cheese keep in these vacuum sealed containers.

Don't waste your $$$
My husband threw them away because they leaked.
Not easy to use.
Won't buy any more of your containers.
March 18, 2012
I had purchased 4 of these units based on previous reviews. Sorry to say these units have been nothing but headaches. Sometimes they seal and sometimes you can't get them to seal. I even tried swapping lids, making sure the gaskets and container rims are clean, and even to the point of removing the gaskets and reseating them. I wish they made a deli container that lives up to their name.
