FoodSaver® V3485 Vacuum Sealer
Tried the marinator and it does a great job , made 20 lbs of sausage and had it packaged in record time ( for me ) . I especially like all the automatic features , a real time saver . Have recommended this machine to others .

This is my second Food Saver. The first was a horizontal V2440, which I also liked. The upright feature of the V3485 is convenient - no lid to open and close. And the auto vac/seal feature is nice. It works about 95% of the time. When it doesnt, it usually is b/c the bag is too full and the edge doesn't go in far enough. Ive had this for about 2 years and it works like a charm. Good price and very durable.

This was a gift to my daughter.
After using my Food Saver for several years, I realized my daughter would benefit. Several members of my family have been using it for years, freezing bulk purchases and preserving fresh greens in the refrigerator. I put soup in paper bowls, pre freeze it, and seal it in Food Saver bags. It's easy then to drop into serving bowls and heat in the microwave

This is my second foodsaver unit. My first one was a different model was manual, cost more and gave me much grief.
I am so glad that I purchased my new unit directly from Foodsaver.
They have great customer service, speedy shipping and I purchased this unit on sale. There is a big difference between manual and automatic. If your going to purchase this model you will not be disappointed.

I don't think that most people know that the vacuum sealer can be used to seal potato chip bags. Just insert the edges of the bag and seal it without the vacuum. Cereal bags can also be resealed to keep cereal fresh between uses. I especially like to reseal potato chip bags because a large bag of chips will stay fresh a lot longer. Each time, it is like opening a bag of chips for the first time.

This is the biggest piece of junk I have ever owned. Bought it a Sam's club and the quality matched the price, cheap! It will not heat seal a bag until you take it in and out of the machine several times. Would seal one or two bags then not seal another one without a red light flashing on and off for several more failed attempts to seal the bag. Once the vacuum pump would start it would pull the air out on one bag and then not take all the air out of the next 2 bags. After a half hour job took over an hour the vacuum sealer found it's way to the trash. It is Junk!

Love my FoodSaver
I purchased 2 of these units, one for my family and one for my parents as a Christmas gift. We are all ecstatic with how these work. My husband and I are both hunters, so these came at just the perfect time - deer season. We also purchase meat at bulk stores, so these keep everything fresh for as long as we need! :)

quality with a hint of sleekness
Love this product. Way more than I expected. I think I may have food saved my whole house. Keeps everything very fresh. The marinate feature is awesome. Makes the meat very flavorful and juicy. Would recommend this product to anyone
