FoodSaver® V2431 Vacuum Sealing System
I've had several "Food Saver's" over the years, but this unit tops them all. Takes all the guess work out of the operation, just push the right button. Also works with all the accessories that we have accumulated over the years.

This product has saved me so much money!
I recently purchased the Food Saver as a Christmas gift for myself. Since its purchase, I have busied myself with stocking my freezer and pantry with food staples that will make cooking meals a breeze! I've even saved money by purchasing large cuts of meat and cutting, portioning, freezing, and sealing them for future use. I used to purchase pre-packaged snack sized nut and dried fruit blends for a quick on-the-go breakfast or mid-afternoon snack. Packaging and vacuum sealing my own blend of nuts, dried fruits and yogurt covered raisins was an easy endeavor and has saved me a ton of money!
The user manual was very informative and gave great tips as far as how to prepare foods to be vacuum sealed using the Food Saver. I haven't had any problems preparing foods and sealing them properly using the guidelines found in the user manual. While I have only had the Food Saver for about a month, I have already saved a lot of money when grocery shopping and anticipate continuing to do so thanks to this amazing product!

Gift for my son and his family
Ever since I bought my own machine a few years back I've had trouble getting it BACK from my son and his family so this year I figured I'd change that. They began to use it Christmas Day! It was amazing, they are also gardeners so preserve that which they produce and love to buy oversized packages of meats which prior had usually gone to waste.
All of these machines are so simple to use and the cost savings is fantastic! Perfect gift for almost anyone!

The foodsaver has more than one good Quality
The food saver extra are under advertised and they too can have a valuable spot in the kitchen. The hard containers can save individual servings for a future meal. The machine is very easy to use and can also re-seal cereal bags and potato chip bags. Any plastic bag item I have tried worked. But be sure you only seal and not vacuum seal potato chips. The thing is so strong it makes almost powder out of the chips by crushing them.

Very helpful when buying in bulk
We bought our first Food Saver about 8 years ago and used it until we had to wait approx. 5 minutes for the sealing strip to cool down. We finally broke down and bought another one. We had forgotten how fast they seal and cool down! We are very happy with our new Food Saver and look forward to using it for the next 8-10 years!!

This is my 2nd Food Saver, I wore out the 1st one
Like this one even more than the original one I purchased 20 years ago. Also appreciate that they sent me a new tube to use with the canisters. Really looking forward to enjoying the new Food Saver for many years to come.

Replacement for an "Old Faithful"
After having my V2480 for 6 years, the vacuum motor finally gave out and I was faced with replacing it. This model (V2431), appears to be identical and I'm looking forward to years of continued use. I use the accessory hose and a marinating container quite often to quickly marinate meats before cooking. I also have several of their vacuum canisters which I use often for storing rice and other dried ingredients. Overall, I am quite pleased with the FoodSaver product.
