FoodSaver® V3816 Vacuum Sealer
I recently got this foodsaver because the one that I had for 5 years died. At first it was hard to get used to because it is all automatic when it seals, but once I got used to it nothing but smooth sailing. I would definitely recommend this product to others out there. We just put up 10 bushels of sweet corn and it did not overheat once. I use my food saver for everything we buy in bulk so it is very nice to be able to save my produce into individual servings (vegetables, meats, cheeses, rice, nuts, fruits, and pastas). I have got my money back using it and then some. If you buy in bulk or like to garden like we do I would recommend getting this foodsaver product.

Attractive and functional
A foodsaver vacumm sealer is as necessary in a kitchen as the refrigerator or stove are. With bulk buying and sales being the only way to save money on food devices like this are a must. This model replaces my V2840 and is the first automated sealer for me. I don't have any complaints, it does take some time learning best way to push the bags in and getting the size right for the bags since the roll is held higher in these models but you can work around it. The seal is nice and sold, bigger or wider than my older model. The pull out canaster cord was a great addition, long and can't get lost. The white color is pleasing and fits in with all the other major applinces. If your upgrading or buying for the first time and would like a model that isn't to expensive give this one a try. Only thing missing is the deli bag attachment but better off buying the hand held model for that since both do different jobs.

This product needs some work
I like the style but when making your own bag it doesn't have a timer or automatic stop. The directions are pretty vague for first time users who have no idea what to do.

This is much bigger than others I have owned so it took a bit to get used to. I actually had to read the instructions because it is so automatic I only had to push the ON button. Once I used it, I fell in love with Food Saver all over again. My last two didn't last as long as my first one so I am hoping this lasts longer. I wouldn't be without one as it seals so great and takes all the air out for a longer storage. I have not tried all the other features YET but am looking forward to it.

This is simple to use with an excellent design.
Our previous one was broken and this was the excellent replacement. It works faster than our old one.

Excellent Vacuum Sealer!!!
It is not often that I can say this, but I am truly impressed with this machine! I wasn't expecting anything this nice for the price, but, WOW!! Not to mention it came quicker than I thought it would, too. I have been vacuum sealing everything in sight....
