The FoodSaver® FreshSaver® Red Handheld Vacuum Sealing System
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.

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...

I like the product
I use it mostly to seal cheese products, Sharp, Blue, Pepper etc. Did not like the way it worked with lunch meat, it seemed to suck a lot of moisture out of them, that was disappointing. I also don't like the fact that it doesn't work for the freezer.

I ordered this item as a Christmas gift for my daughter. The version she asked for (with the charging dock) was not available but this one is close and a good price. I do not know if she has used it yet but feel certain she will let me know how it works for her.
