FoodSaver has saved me LOTS of $$$$$
I've had my FoodSaver for about 3 years, and can't imagine my kitchen without one. I'm absolutely sure I've recouped the cost, maybe even several times, from not throwing away freezer-burned food, not discarding moldy cheese, and from a thoroughly effective way to freeze the bounty from our home garden. Leftovers are as good as the freshly cooked dish, and my husband (not normally a leftover fan) agrees. We're a two person household, and I LOVE to cook, and can now do it in quantity, assured that everything will be ready to reheat quickly and deliciously. I prefer the rolls instead of premade bags, as they give me the ultimate flexibility in the quantities I prepare for the freezer.

This complete system is a fantastic way to freeze foods that are always fresh. I even freeze cookies. I put any liquids, for example chicken soup in a container and then freeze. For spaghetti, I spray the container first with PAM. The next day I wrap and put in one of FoodSaver bags. This always keeps my machine from being exposed to liquids. For me it makes the job easier as it is done over a period of 2 days. I don't have to stand a long time in one period. Also since it is only the two of us, I always have a great selection of meas without always cooking. Works great for chili. It is just as easy to make 3 or 4 meals at a time. My machine is one of the older models as I have had for quite a number of years. It has given me great service.

The 8" rolls are a perfect size.
I purchased a FoodSaver a few months ago and I am very happy with my purchase. I use the 8" rolls more than anything and I find this size is perfect for my needs. I have however, used the 11" rolls as well for larger items. I buy in bulk and since using my FoodSaver for smaller portions, I am not discarding as much food as I used to. My FoodSaver has saved me a lot of time and money. It is truly one of the most used appliances in my kitchen. I find myself using it to seal all food items that are in bags such as, chips, rice, bread, frozen foods, etc.

The best bag in a roll out there!
I was given a Black & Decker Vacuum Sealer for a gift. The bags that came with it were constantly failing to seal. I bought an 8" roll package of bags by Food Saver and I have never looked back. They seal every time!
I mostly use the 8" size, because I live alone and that is perfect for the portions I freeze. But occasionally I need the 11" for larger portions, like roasts, or casseroles that I freeze.
I have recommended Food Saver products to many of my friends and even to strangers I have met in the store. When my Black & Decker wears out, I will most certainly purchase a Food Saver Vacuum System to go with the bags. :)

If one has a garden a Foodsaver is a must have!
For years I discussed purchasing a vacuum sealer for my garden and berry goodies. I purchased one that wasn't a Foodsaver. My husband read reviews on it and found it wasn't going to work for us. He discovered the Foodsaver had the highest rating and had me return my purchase and order a Professional lll Plus that offered repeditve sealing without having to wait between each sealing.
We been putting it through a lot of use in the last two weeks, sealing berries and beans from the garden and it works as advertised. Just a great addition to my kitchen tools, don't know why I waited so long to get one.

This product lets me seal anything
Can't tell you how much I love the 8" roll. I cut off the size I intend to use and whalla!! We fish, go to farmer's markets, and I am a very good cook who tends to cook in large quantities (probably because we had six kids in the family and with my Mother working, I prepared the meals and large they were. We are leaving next week to go camping and taking our 8 year old Grandson who lives for camping. I already roasted turkey legs (his favorite meal) and vacuum sealed them. I made applesauce, cooled it, and put equal amounts into bags. Love the product.

Rolls better than individual bags
Love the rolls because you can make you own sizes. Contrary to what another reviewer said, I am always able to use the roll to the very end; the tape peals away easily, and I use the manual control to seal the end to make the last bag. Have been using FoodSavers for about 25 years; started when my husband hunted; now as a widow, I buy and cook in quantity and freeze. Very economical. My friends call me the "queen of the freezer." Use it several times a week. Can't be without one!
