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.

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

Great for large items/big game
Great product! This model is much larger than the original which makes it easy to vacuum seal larger items. It was easy to use and quick too. I was able to package 4 large roasts and several pounds of beef in about 30 min. I would highly recommend this product to any one who likes to buy in bulk or avid hunters. Great looking product. I only had one problem when using the product, one of the packages did not seal properly, there were gaps in the seal. I don't know if this was caused because of the amount of use the machine was getting or maybe the bag wrinkled under the sealing strip. Other than that issue, I had no problems using the machine. I did receive this food saver as a sample.

Easy to use and high quality.
This product is great for bulk buying from stores like Costco. We immediately put it to use by sealing meat and fish. It was easy to use and sealed it all perfectly.
The unit is well built and has the feel of quality. The lifetime guarantee is an added bonus but this think is built like a tank so I doubt that I will ever need to use it!
I hunt and fish and really look forward to using this product a lot. The freezer space saved alone is worth it. This sealer was given to me in order to test and review but it is truly a product that I never knew that I needed. Now that I have it I see all of the benefits that it provides. Gone are the days of frost covered meat and fish in my freezer. Now when something is pulled out it is as fresh as the day it was sealed.
I highly recommend this food saver product.
