The FoodSaver® FreshSaver® Red Handheld Vacuum Sealing System
This machine has changed my life. Cold cuts and hard cheeses are just a few of the uses for this machine. Grab a back and the machine from the counter and get a quick seal.
I like that smaller bags better. Have had some difficulty getting a good seal with the larger and the hard sided containers. Sometimes they seal and sometimes they don't.
My big machine is in a cabinet, no room on counter top. So this little machine fits the bill. Just lift it off the bag when enough seal has been reached and food stays fresh. Just don't do a full seal on your sliced cheese as it will create a block of cheese.

The fresh saver is a money saver!!!
First we have been a foodsaver user for many years. So I have faith in the product. When we got our first fresh saver a couple of years ago. we really liked the ease of use and convienence. It is great to help fruits, vegetables, cheeses last longer in the fridge. It is great to help keep sandwiche meats and leftovers fresher and last longer. We bought our second one today because our first one (after over two years of use, just wouldn't charge) died. It's a great product and I highly recommend for anyone.

Not as useful or handy as the old model .
I purchased this sealer as my only option since you took the easy hand held wand type (WineSaver/FreshSaver) off the market. I was so pleased with my true hand held that fit in it's little "holster" that took only minimum space on the counter, was always handy and sealed my jars of juice or left overs in seconds. Oh well...things change. All my other friend "juicers" are hoping their original hand helds keep going.

Good for dry foods, and ONLY dry foods
I bought this for everyday use. My definition of everyday use is dry and wet food. It didn't work, AT ALL, for wet, even damp, food. Like if you're going to and package some steak, you better paper towel them off. The slightest amount of moisture will get sucked into the machine and make a mess. If you're just going to use this for dry food, it's for you, if not, spend the money for a bigger one.

Works about 1/2 the time
I'm having better success with freezing bags I have used this product on. The unfrozen bags are really not keeping the air out. Again, about 50/50. I'm not sure what the problem is but I've been diligent in closing the seal and I know that they are vacuumed fully at the time. But several days later, they have lost the seal.
So far all the frozen bags have held.

QUITE A SURPRISE
I've had FoodSaver machines for years and they have served me well (generally) but I thought I'd give this little gadget a try. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and convenience of the hand held unit. It is very handy in sealing bags containing snacks and other items late at night or when you need a bit of quiet in the house. I am now using it often.

Excellent design that is easy to use
Love this vacuum sealer!!. Very convenient to use. I'm a big cheese eater and now buy cheese by bulk because can now seal and reseal my cheese so easily. No longer have to pull that big, bulky vacuum sealer out every time I need to seal something. This compact design allows me to keep this on my counter, making it super quick when I need to seal food. LOVE IT!!

I've been using this product for a few years now without a problem, I'm on the website looking for more of them to purchase as gifts.
A couple of the reviews mentioned the recharge not working anymore. My guess is that these must have been defective originally and they needed to notify the company...
