The NEW FoodSaver® GameSaver® Titanium Vacuum Sealer
Black Tail Deer preparation for freezer
The Food Saver Titanium worked so well we were able to vacuum pack an entire deer (Black Tail) within a couple of hours. Using both the Single and Double sealing options, the unit never broke down or needed time to cool (sealing heater). I must say that I did not use the recommended required 3 inches on the majority of the vacuum packing for it worked so well without it. Time will tell if these settings (less than 3 inches) should be used based on how well these items will last in the freezer. The preformed bags with paper towel inserts worked just fine in absorbing extra moisture from the stew meat we packed, too.
I also used this product on some cod caught in Northern California. Once again the Food Saver titanium worked so well we did the entire sack (35 filets) with time and roll material to spare!
I did receive this product as a sample and am very thankful for the folks at Food Saver for allowing me to review this product.

Incredible for heavy household use!
I received the Gamesaver Titanium over the holidays and it is hands down the best vacuum sealer I have ever used. We're not hunters or fisher but we are batch cookers and we seal almost every meal we cook. One of the most unique features of the sealer is the ability to double seal products. I have found it most useful for "wetter" items. With a 15" wide bag at your disposal you are able to seal larger item and volume with ease. I have been experimenting with vacuum sealing different items and the results have been incredible. I even vacuum sealed an avocado and was able to eat it 10 days later!

There are two small faults with this machine.
The two things I would like to see different on this machine. # 1. Make the open store close handle eaiser to work, it is very stiff. # 2. This machine is very high, even sitting on a bench you have to hold the bag up to get the proper vaccum and seal or make the bag longer than the three inches extra to leave it lay on the bench, the cure for this is to find someone to make a riser for in front of the machine that puts the bag level, or just a little below, the level of the machine, (I used two pieces of 3/4 hardwood 20" x 14" laminated together for this. After doing this I have found the machine much eaiser to use.

The GameSaver titanium is outstanding
I purchased my GameSaver Titanium this fall after much research and reading previous comments from others that purchased this model. Those that have purchased it, were enthusiastic in their recommendation and praised and described it as being rugged, reliable, and easy to use. I agree! I have successfully used it to preserve and freeze a bumper crop of a large variety of organic peppers that I raised from my garden. I will no longer need to purchase expensive fresh peppers this winter. I'm very happy about that! Also I used it to preserve and freeze an apple pie. In my opinion there is no better model for the home gardener.

Great machine easy to use
The Gamesaver Titanium G800 is a well built and remarkably easy to use machine. Large buttons make for easy operation. I like being able to make different size bags to fit any size portion of meat. It works very well for freezing vegetables also. I gave this product 4.5 stars because the machine is a little larger than I like. The price is fair for this product. I received this product as a sample to review and having never used a vacuum sealer before I was unsure how it would perform, I was quite pleased. Overall I think it is a wonderful machine and would recommend it to anyone wanting to freeze meats and vegetables for any extended period of time.

Does what it is supposed to do
The Foodsaver Titanium is a very eye pleasing machine. We used it to seal whole chickens, fish, wild game and dry goods. The assortment of bags made each task simple. The buttons are simple and easy. It really helps a family save. I was very impressed from day one. We have sealed all of our meats for our school homecoming, and I know that the flavor is locked in. I highly recommend this product base on the ease of use, appearance, and sturdiness. The product was reviewed by myself as a sample, and I would gladly purchase another for my deer hunting uncle after reviewing the Foodsaver Titanium.

Great products for the sportsman!!!!
I am an active deep-sea fisherman and may bring home 200 - 300 pounds or more fish from some of my trips. The Game Saver has the power and ruggedness so I can package my catch quickly. I like the double seal capability and I do not have to stop to let the unit cool down. It is much larger than any of the previous Food Saver units I have had but it can seal the 15-inch material which does come in handy for some of the larger cuts. The fish stays fresh in my freezer for up to two years. I also purchase larger quantities of some foods at discount stores and then sub-divide into smaller packages. The unit must be latched for each seal which takes some getting used to but is easy to clean afterwards.

Great for storing large quantities
The FoodSaver Titanium has been great. As a family that purchases our meat in bulk to freeze for later, we used to have to dedicate a day to getting prepared for the winter. With the Titanium model, we were able to accomplish a days worth of work in just a few hours. This unit is ideal for anyone who takes their storage seriously and for whom time is a precious commodity. We were lucky enough to use this unit as part of a focus group and we absolutely would recommend it for anyone that is frustrated with food sealers that are intended for casual use. A great value for its performance and time saving.
