FoodSaver® V3810 Vacuum Sealing System
So easy to use!
I love it. It's so quick and easy. I'm a gardener and vegetarian so I put up a lot of vegetables in the summer. And I don't overcook my vegetables so I want the cooked quality as close as possible to fresh picked. Needless to say, freezer burn has been a source of anxiety for me. This product gets all the air out in a few seconds and seems to have a tight seal. My only frustration was in trying to vac squash, which has a lot of moisture. The tray repeatedly filled with water, which cut off the vac. Now I freeze them on a tray first and it works perfectly. The upright style reduces the amount of counter space I need to reserve for that phase of my operation.

Love the new features that my old one didn't have!
I had been looking for the right Foodsaver for a long time and after reading reviews and watching videos I decided on the perfect one for me.
It is amazing and so easy to use. I love the built in cutter and roll storage. I love the marinate setting as well. Mine came with a marinate container and LOVE it!
I hadn't used a Foodsaver in years because it just wasn't user friendly and now mine is a dream come true. I now make meals ahead and freeze them and now moving on to the new deli containers and bags for quick in and out.
I will never be without a Foodsaver again! Thanks for a great machine!

Another fine product from FoodSaver
I have a Silver model at my hunt camp and we used it to wrap and seal over 20 boned out deer last season and it never missed a lick. I needed another vacuum sealer for the home, so I jumped on this one and use it several times a week. The product is very simple to operate and puts the vacuum on just about anything edible. I got the sealer for a good price and love it. Just another fine product from FoodSaver. Enough said.

BEST kitchen appliance ever!!
Hands down, this is the best purchase I've ever made for my kitchen!! Buying meats in bulk is no longer a headache and hassle; breaking down packages of chicken or meat, and portion wrapping to freeze, is now the easiest (and my favorite) thing to do.
Bonus: zero freezer burn!! My family also loves cubed cheese for snacks, but we go through phases- so instead of getting half way through (an expensive) block of cheese, then throwing the other half away a week later (due to mold,) I simply drop the block into a custom bag, and use/reseal as needed. All my foods stay fresh longer, and I haven't thrown anything away since the day my FoodSaver arrived. **Best recommended use: as a new bride, I was worried I hadn't wrapped my top cake tier well enough. The FoodSaver's Expandalbe Bag, along with the delicate setting, made the perfect airtight seal around the cake, without crushing the delicate buttercream icing flowers. Looking forward to our anniversary more than ever now!!
The FoodSaver is a universal tool good for anything and everything needing a vacuum tight seal, and my only regret is waiting so long to get one. It's definitely a NEED IT item!!!

LOVE THIS THING!!
I am in love with this vacuum sealer. I have had multiple ones in the past and this one is by far the best and easiest one I've had. Its so attractive and they've really thought of everything as far as storage. the cord is hidden as well as the hose. Love it. You will NOT be disappointed.

works great for short periods
We seal 7 or 8 things then it won't seal again for several minutes, when it seals it does an excellent job, but we put up A LOT of product at one time and it doesn't quite keep up. Works WAYbetter than our old seal a meal just hate haveing to wait on it to be ready.

I bought this as a replacement for my last food saver, which lasted about two years. I like it overall, the only thing I would change is how you go about sealing, but not vacuum sealing, a bag. On my last machine you just placed the bag in the machine and hit seal (as versus vacuum & seal). On this machine you have to push the seal button, perfectly center a perfectly flat bag between the arrows and insert it about two inches into the machine to get the sealing mechanism to seal. I used to use this feature a lot to reseal potato chip bags and the like, but this machine makes that difficult as the bags have to be perfectly flat and centered perfectly in the machine.

Even better than my old one!
This was a great buy for me. I've had a couple of Foodsavers over the years and this is an excellent product. It does everything I want and it was much cheaper on the Foodsavers.com website than it was on Amazon. The customer service was great - I forgot to use a coupon code and when I called, they included an extra roll of bags to make up for it. My only complaint is that in order to seal rolled bags, you have to lose a full inch of the bag and this issue makes it harder to seal partially used bags. Other than that, it's great. My hubby uses the marinate feature all the time.
