The NEW FoodSaver® 2-In-1 Vacuum Sealing Kit
I have mainly used it for freezing food so far. The cooked food taste fresh when I thaw it out. So far no freezer burn. I like to buy food in bulk. So this appliance works well for me so far.

exceeds all expectations.
I was very pleased with my first unit, but this new one is even better. Ease of use and performance are beyond belief.
I can highly reccomend this unit to all. You will not be disapointed.

Wife and I have used Foodsaver products for many, many years while raising our 3 daughters to save money by buying in bulk and freezing or vacuum sealing dry products into smaller bags.

It's now my favorite countertop appliance
Great just like all the other reviews said. With just a little practice you too will be a vacuum bag pro!! I love my wife's gourmet food as leftover just as much as the original dish!

Good value for the dollar.
Best performance is obtained when operated in a cool/cold environment. Anywhere below 55 degrees, it won't overheat and stall your process. Other than that, we're satisfied thus far.

A staple on our countertop!
We've had this unit for about a month now and we LOVE it! It's small enough that we we're able to keep it out on our counter so it's never out of sight; out of mind.
We've used it to seal all kinds of items and it works better than I imagined.
My husband and I searched and searched looking for a good vacuum sealer and I'm so happy we went with this one. Yes it's a little pricey but it's so worth it!

I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. I use it several times a day. Since I received it, I haven't discarded any food. Everything has been as good as the day I fixed it.

Big Improvement Over Older Models
I've been using a Foodsaver brand vacuum sealer for more than a year now. I found it a bit clumsy to use at times; it felt like I needed three arms to use it. This new model is amazing. All you need to do is place the bag into the machine, and it grabs the bag and seals it. It's incredibly simple to use.
Note: I did receive this product as a sample to review, but it did not influence this review.

This product has great features
We upgraded from another vac sealer to the food saver and it is the best product we have bought thus far. It looks good, is so easy to use, and recommend it to everyone.

Love the Food Saver!!
The Food Saver is incredible! I have used the vacuum for packages, the marinator, and jars. In all cases, it worked wonderfully. I highly recommend this product!

This unit is better then any of the other foodsaver units I have tried .it is easy and fast to use eventhough it is a bit loud the quickness makes up for it .

Well worth the money
I am so glad i finally broke down and ordered my food saver. It is so easy to use. I have already packaged food that would have normally gone to the trash.

Very nice replacement for my old Food Saver!
I bought one of the original sealers and it has lasted until this year. This new Food Saver so nice, compact, looks very nice and is very easy to use.

This is great, I replaced an older version, which still works great and also giving to my son. This works great and looks good sitting on the counter.

Extremely easy to use and very fast
The unit was easy to set up and we started using it right away. It quickly seals the bags and pulls a vacuum faster than other units we have used.

Recieved the product quicly!! So far it has worked perfectly. Will update this review as time goes on. But as right now I could not be happier.

easy to use, works great
everything Works Great Although It Takes A Little Practice getting The Bag In Right. The Only Complaint I Have Is That The Cord Is Too Short...

Have only had for a short time. Have put meats in freezer simple to use. Have owned two others. That did not seem to work as well as this one

This product is great for food storage.
We love our new Food Saver. We buy larger packages of meats and divide them into smaller packages, saving a considerable amount of money.

Easy as 1, 2, 3
Vast improvement from the old system that I had. My shoulders would ache from having to press down on top to facilitate sealing. Love it!

It's great! Love how easy it is to use. Like the way the canister attachment is used easier than the tube. Look is better not so large.

this is my 4th and have used them in europe/asia
loud when in use - it seals about 3/4 inches from the edges which I find a little too much. overall still very good to preserve food

Looks great and it's easy to use!
I had never used a vacuum sealer before this one so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. After giving the manual a quick read it was time to test it out. The V4865 is very easy to use right out of the box and thanks to the bags and the rolls that come with it you can start right away! I really like that you can make any size bag you want (and it's easy thanks to the built-in cutter) seal one side, insert food, and then vacuum and seal the other side.
It does make a fair amount of noise when doing the vacuuming so you might not want to use it when it's late.
This unit also has a auto shut-off feature, after 12 mins of non-use it shuts itself off.
Something else I noticed looking through manual Foodsaver says this unit has a 5 year limited warranty!
Note: I got V4865 as a sample to review but my review is my own.

Excellent features and easy to use
This product is great! It keeps everything that we store in the bags keep fresh. We buy a lot of meats and they are always fresh.

Simple, effecient and beatuiful
This is my second FoodSaver product and I think it is just wonderful,. The ease of sealing and vacuuming the bags is outstanding. I also love the storage compartment for the bag right on top of the machine. Not only can you save money with this product but time as well. The retractable accessory is so easy to use as well. It is a wonderful addition to my kitchen. I received this product in my home at no cost to me to test it and review it. It is really a great investment.

looks great on counter and easy to use
Easy to use to wrap food for the freezer. Makes it reasonable to buy in bulk and wrap meat from hunting and fishing.
