FoodSaver® V3440 Vacuum Sealer
Stick to the Basics
I was given a FoodSaver as a gift and loved it. It was a basic model and was heartbroken when it needed to be replaced. I was confident that my new would work as well. I was WRONG!!!! It worked okay for a while.Then it became extremely difficult to use. Won't seal bags to make custom bags. When trying to seal a bag after use, it doesn't seal. Trying to get it to operate at all is difficult. It's back to the basics for me.

I finally got it right!
I've been a FoodSaver user for many years---I'm on my 3rd or 4th machine now--- and LOVE the product! BUT when I remodeled the kitchen, somewhere in the process I lost the space where I had always kept my flat to the counter FoodSaver. I found leaving it in a cabinet made pulling it out more cumbersome than it was worth but was unhappy with the zipper type bags for storing in the freezer. Oh woe was me!
BUT in checking the FoodSaver webpage I found a VERTICAL Foodsaver===hummmm. So I decided to try this out as I Did have room for this footprint.
And EUREKA! I found the perfect solution for space, leaving the machine out full time, and getting all my storage needs satisfied! Oh Happy Day!!!!
Thankd FoodSaver, for supplying us your grateful customers with CHOiCES for all our needs.

Absolutely everyone should have a food saver!
My daughter gave me my first one. I have replaced that one and love it. I just bought my brother one for a house warming gift. It's his first and I'm sure we'll have another loyal user! I use the jar sealer and love that feature also. Super, super product line.

Works great and takes up little space
this is my second unit. Only bought it because I want to leave it out on the counter. The only problem with this unit is that there's no place to store the accessory tube. It's streamlined and takes up very little space on the counter which is a big plus.

DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL
The most nonfunctional kitchen appliance I ever bought. First you have to try repeatedly for the machine to seal end of empty bag. When and if it decides to seal bag then you have to repeatedly try again to get it to seal other end of bag once it is filled. Often it will finally seal the bag but not remove the air from it. In this case you have to cut open and throw that bag away and start over. Where is the savings in that? I would have given it zero stars, but you had to give at least one.

More difficult to use than old one.
This model does not operate as easily as our previous one. I had a lot of trouble getting it to work at all. Some packages would not vaccumn seal at all. Would glafly trade it for the old model,but we wore it out.

I haven't tried any of the other units but this unit does everything I need! It can be used with almost all accessories and so far has worked splendidly!

Awesome improvrments over earlier models
We love the simplicity-- built in bag roll storage, bag cutter, and sooo much easier to clean. The small footprint is a definite advantage. We o a lot of camping/rving and package all of our refrigerated/frozen food in food saver bags most meats are stored in marinade. We even package dry goods in food saver bags to save space and to preserve freshness of portions. The food saver is compact and easy to store in our space limited RV. We love it!

Faster & better than our last one.
This unit replaces our older, worn out one that served well for several years. We found that this model is easier to use and much faster. It also looks nice and stores easier on our counter. It also vacuums and seals tighter. All-in-all, an awesome machine.

Fish and more!!
It is time once again to process our fish from our Alaskan summer catch....there is no way that I would even begin the process without my food saver!! Our kitchen turns into a sealing factory when the fish are running!! Love the ease and quickness of the machine...and it holds up to Alaskan sized fish!! Love it!!!

Bought for gift
I bought this for my son for Christmas. When he got it home and tried to seal something, he called and said that it did not work. I told him I would get in touch with your company but he wanted to do it himself. So, I don't know if I bought the wrong one, even though that is the one he sent me a picture of.

I like the different features it has.
I like the new food saver but compared to my older one it is harder to get the bags sealed. When I put the bag it I keep having to take it in and out before it will start sealing. I have not used it a lot so I am hoping with time I can get use to how to hold the bag to get it to seal faster.

Easy to use
I had never used a product like this before. It was very easy to learn how to operate it. I have already put many items in the freezer using the food saver bags and have already noticed the difference between the food saver bags and the bags I was using before. Food looks so much better.

Great product for cost savings
We were impressed with the quality and also the amount of vacuum pressure. I am positive that we will save money with this purchase. My only comment on use or improvement, please make it more plain about the sealing process and how to insert and remove the bag. Thanks, Ken & Deb

FoodSaver® V3440 Ease of use
I recently purchased the V3440 online and am happy with the purchase. I never used a FoodSaver or other vacuum seal unit and was pleasantly surprised at how simple it it to use. I recomend FoodSaver to anyone wishing to store their food to last longer.

so many cool functions
We havent sealed anything but a bagel so far, but just the possibilities are so vast. We tested the heat seal on an empty bag and its perfect and strong. Very excited to start really sealing some food.

Great value for the price.
This is my 3rd Food Saver & by far this is the best one I've had. This one takes up less counter space, has better features & almost hands free!
