The NEW FoodSaver® 2-In-1 Vacuum Sealing Kit
The light bulb for me just recently came on regarding how much food I was wasting. It only took 42 years! This appliance is easy to use and is not an eye sore to look at if left on the counter. It's efficient design takes up less space than others. So excited to have bought this.

Received this product a little over a week ago and have already used it several times with great success. I love that it has a place to store the bag roll and a cutter built in, very convenient. I like the option of customizing the bag sizes, I tend to freeze and store in smaller portions bc I am a house of only 3. Although I did find I got a better seal with the premade bags. I will definitely be trying the zip lock bags and the containers so I can try the marinating function, that seems very cool. It has many features that I wouldn't expect like the marinating I mentioned and the ability to seal jars. It is a little big but really I'll take the storage compartment over a smaller model since you have to store the bags somewhere anyway. I received the product for free to sample and use so for me the value was fantastic but had I paid retail I would still say it is worth the investment. The food stays fresh and is easy to freeze in the portions you require. Definitely enjoy and would recommend this product.

Excellent updated product.
We have been using a food saver for 15 or more years. We use it to preserve foods and prepared meals for backpacking. The updated product from our old machine is an order of magnitude improvement. I can highly recommend this product for anyone requiring a vacuum packing system.

Great product convenient to use has great features
I love the new Foodsaver vacuum sealer. When I found out I was going to receive a sample unit to test I was beyond happy. After it was out of the box the first thing that I noticed was the modern look and design that fits in very well with my kitchen. I have two favorite features the first being the storage compartment for a roll of bags. No longer do I have to search for my storage bags and a pair of scissors. Now when I want to vacuum seal something all I have to do is open the appliance door, pull out the amount of bag needed, cut and seal. I was able to vacuum seal a whole bag of chicken breasts and about 30 burgers in no time all. My second favorite feature is their retractable handheld sealer which is used with their containers and canisters, jar sealer, and zipper bags. Since I didn't have to search through my kitchen drawers to find the tube used to seal containers I found myself vacuum sealing more than I had ever done before. There were some other features I found useful like the PulseVac control for manual vacuuming for delicate items, the removable drip tray for catching liquids, and the food selector for moist or dry food. I have only one negative comment about the new Foodsaver vacuum sealer and that is the length of the power cord. I wish it was longer. My house is older with a minimal amount of electrical outlets so, getting the vacuum sealer plug-in was a challenge.

This is a great product.
I love the whole concept of vacuum sealing food for storage and keeping it fresh. This is my third sealer. There was a slight learning curve at first but once I got the hang of it no problems. Would defiantly buy another. This product has great features and looks great too.

I had a FoodSaver Professional II for years.....it still works I just wanted to upgrade and am I glad I did! I love the appearance and the ease of use. In fact I've used It so much I need more bags which I'm getting ready to order. Thank you for a wonderful product!

This food saver vacuum sealer is so easy to use.
It takes a matter of minutes to set up and start using. My first sealing project was 40lbs of Zaycon chicken. It sealed the 50 bags effortlessly. I will definately recommend this product. I am getting ready to order some accessories for it and also some more bags.

Foodsaver 2-in-1 sooo quick and easy!
The Foodsaver 2-in-1 really is soooo simple to use. I have an active 1 yr old and I need something that is quick and efficient. I also need to save money and hate to see food go to waste! I received the Foodsaver as a sample to review. It is awesome! I was able to vacuum seal some steaks that I got on sale at the market in less than 5 minutes and that included cutting a bag to use! I used the heat sealer part to create and seal a bag, then used the vacuum sealer part to suck out the air. It is loud when sealing, but very quick The Foodsaver is very attractive on my countertop, but its what it has on the inside... It has a marinate button so it actually like pulls the fluids into the meat! What an awesome bonus! Also there are zip bags that you can use a hand pump with to seal, yet you can continue to open the bag until you've used up the cheese or whatever you're storing. There is also a jar sealer attachment. It came with plenty of bags and two rolls so you can create custom sizes. I really love this Foodsaver and now a lot of the food that I find on special at the grocery store won't go to waste (our store always has Buy One Get One specials on meat, and now I don't have to worry about getting freezer burn or my meat going bad. I also live to buy fresh fruit when it is in season and I freeze it so we can have fruity treats throughout the year. The money you save on being able to freeze or refrigerate your excess food is so worth it! I'm very pleased with it!

Very easy to use
I debated about buying a foodsaver for years do to the cost. I'm so glad I finally bought one. I can stock up on meat and poultry and do not have to worry about freezer burn. If you have contemplated buying one....BUY IT; you won't regret it.

Worth it's weight in gold
I have to say that I am very pleased with the Foodsaver 2in1 unit. I have not had any prior experience with the product, and managed very nicely to bag up some fresh corn on the cob for my freezer, as well as using the jar attachment to seal my giardinere and peppers&carrots! They turned out beautifully! It's very easy to use, the manual spells everything out....just in case you have trouble....and clean up was a breeze. I've tried other systems in the past, and they were inadequate for my needs. Not only can I vacuum seal nearly ANYTHING with my new 2in1, it's much more attractive sitting on my counter than the old one I used to have. The only thing I would like to see is a dust cover to keep over it.....that would be a great addition to your accessories! The only issue I had was that I have a really, REALLY small kitchen and counterspace is at a premium. Other than that it is the best appliance I've bought in recent years! I got this unit to test and give my review on. The statements contained herein are those of my actual usage and my own opinion.

Got my Food Saver about a month ago and i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, my Food Saver!! It has been awesome! And it is fun to use!! I have not had any issues with vacuum seals or any operation of the machine!! I wish I had gotten one sooner!!

My first and I love it!
After buying another brand and a different style Foodsaver I settled with this one. I'm so glad I did, I love it! The only issue I have with it is the automatic vacuum feature. It takes a few tries to get the vacuum process going.

We just stepped up from a very old Food saver to the latest model. It is like moving from an early Volkswagen to a Cadillac. It has so many Great improvements! I wish I had it for summer garden but next summer will be here soon!

i am amazed with this sealer because of the unique functions. i sealed fruits, meats and vegetables with the easy to use functions. i definitely would recommend this food sealer. i received this product as a sample to review.

new product is great
I have saved alot of food. I live alone and this food saver really helps me. I wasn't very happy when i went to COSTCO and found the same foodsaver alot cheaper.Like $ 129.95. This new foodsaver is the 3rd one I have bought.

This is replacing a black stand-on-edge model. I really like the built-in, retractable hose for canisters an re-usable bags. Looks good and works better. If you seal any type of food, this is the best choice, in my opinion.

V4865 Food Saver
I am extremely satisfied with my new foodsaver. I have owned two other models, and the company replaced my last one at no extra charge when it ran out of suction. I cannot say enough about the customer service of Jarden.

sharp looking unit

Best FoodSaver Yet
I love this machine. I particularly like the retractable handheld sealer mechanism and the vacuum zipper bags. In addition, the main sealer now uses less bag length to make the seal... bravo!
November 18, 2013
This is so easy to use. Just put the bag between the arrow and it seals it's self. I had an older product and had to do everything by hand. With this is much easier.
Just love the product.
