FoodSaver® V3860 Vacuum Sealer
worth every penny
I'm such a skeptical person. I read the reviews for this product and decided I would purchase it. I bought every accessory that it has. I do not have not 1 bad thing to say about this unit. If anything it works too well. Glad it has the option to push and release when you feel the vacuum is enough. If not your homemade loaf bread would look like pancakes.

I bought this product several years ago and use it all the time. What a savings it has been.Gave this one as a gift to someone that had a very old foodsaver. They are very impressed with how easy it is to use and how great it looks on the countertop.
I highly recommend this product for people that throw out food due to not storing leftovers correctly.

only used once
Seems to be much better than my 15 year old food saver that finally started working too slow. I have used this to package deli meat and cheese. A couple of times on the final seal it did not get all the air out. That could have been my error. Will wait and see. Definately will ove this product if I can work that kink out.

This has to be one of the best investments I have made in a long time. The machine is easy to use and even though I haven't had it too long food stays fresher. I always do a lot of research before buying, Food saver was #1 in most of the ratings and the V3860 received many high ratings. I would recommend highly to anyone.

works as advertised easy to use.
Food saver is very easy to use as every thing is automatic. You just insert the end of the bag it starts and stops on it own. Get for science experiment about water boiling at room temperature in a vaccum. This is my second one couldn't live without it now. Great for saving cheese no more mold on the cheese.

I love my Foodsaver!
This machine replaced a Foodsaver I've had for umpteen years. I love LOVE the new one! So much easier to use! Looks good so it can live on the counter all the time where it is easily accessable.
I haven't had it long enough to be able to report on durability or longevity, but it seems to be very well made.

Well worth the money.
I opened the box up and was ready to begin vacuum sealing in minutes. I was happy with the suction power of this machine as it really did vacuum seal the items, unlike last ones I had that just tried to get all the air out.
I recommend this machine for anyone serious about saving foods this way.

Love all the uses for this product!
I am just getting started with my new FoodSaver but let me tell you I love it allready.It is so easy and fun to use.
I removed the air from a banana nut bread, put it in the freezer, removed it 2 days later and my husband and I watched it come back to life after cutting the bag. Really is fun!

This product is so easy to use.
This is my second food saver. The first one I bought over 15 years ago. I replaced it because I wanted updated features. The old one still works. The V3860 is so easy to use. I don't have a lot of counter space and this model does not take up much space so I can leave it out for everyday use.

Looks great and works well
Seals well and is perfect when fresh fish arrives from trips.

Finding more uses everyday. Setup is quick simple. Layout of control panel simple. After a couple tries it's simple to operate. The design of this particular model fits my counter cabinets great. The only issue I have is I wish it would work on food storage 5mil mylar bags.

This is my favorite foodsaver! I have fibromyalgia and the hands off feature is amazing! The ease of use and the money it saves me is great! I have frozen a ton of fresh fruits and veggies with my foodsaver. When I am without it I feel lost! Definetely recommend!!!

I find thid product to perform perfectly every tim
I have now used my unit for about a month and I am VERY happy withits perforance. It does its job of sealing pouches of food perfectly every time I use it. None of the sealed packages have failed. I highly recommend its purchase and use.

best version yet
Our new machine is easy to use. In the past, it took many attempts to evacuate the oxygen from the bag. Moisture management seems to e easier too. I have purchased two other units to give as gifts; this serves as proof of satisfaction.

I had one of the older FoodSavers and it operated beyond my expectation. Quick to use and seals completely.
Thank you for the best FoodSaver there ever probably will be. Great planning on publics use.

Easy to use - saves money
I find the FoodSaver V3860 to be very easy to use. It does a good job sealing and that allows the food to keep fresh longer. Bags and accessories can add up, but buying in bulk should help offset the costs over time.

This product is extremly easy to use
I have used FoodSaver products for over 7 years and I love it! This particular unit is extremely easy to use and I love not having to hold down any buttons waiting for the sealing to be completed! Excellent product!

Everyone 18 and older living on their own need one
A house is not a home until you make this product a part of you life. If you are working, in school, shacking up or married; your relation with this product will make a big difference in your life style.

I purchased this product to test if it would prevent freezer burn & keep my food fresher longer. So far it's been great. I also like the way keeps the contents flat so I can store more in my freezer.

We have had other Food Saver machines but this one by far is the best one ever. It is easy to use and does a fantastic job in sealing meats, vegetables and cheese. I highly recommend it.

Keep your food fresh until the day you reheat or cook. Works great with all meats and vegetables. You can freeze and save leftovers. Buy in bulk, freeze to save more money.

This is 4th attempt to buy one that lasts more than 3 years. Have not used yet but will advise down the road. These models remind me of coffee makers. BUILT NOT TO LAST.

slow and cumbersome
It doesn't work as well as I expected. Wastes a lot of the bag. Hard to insert bag for sealing then a long pause before sealing. It does seal well and keep food fresh.

I love this product! I used to throw away so much food because it got freezer burned, or just went bad. Now I am able to save so much food, and of course money!!

So far I am very happy with this product. It is very easy to use and very versatile with the various attachments. For me it saves money with less food waste.

Works great and has enhanced features
This is my fourth Vacuum Sealer. The features have been improved. It is easier to get gaskets to replace when the sealer stops having a good grip on a bag.

This is a great product I love it and save lots
I use it to keep food fresh and can use it for spliting up the packs of different foods and therefore I can by in bulk and save lots. It is great for me..

Saving us BIG money!
I'm a full time single dad raising two teenagers, and I was in serious need of help with regard to saving money. Our weekly ritual of standing in front of the refrigerator and tossing out food that had gone bad is over. We were throwing out approximately $25 a week. Think about that. That's well over $1000 a year, straight into the trash. Add the savings I'm seeing by buying in bulk and the consideration of whether or not to invest in our Foodsaver is a "no-brainer". Best purchase I've made in a long time. This isn't "just another kitchen gadget" - it's a money maker for us. Great product. I've wanted one for a long time. I don't know why I took so long to buy it. If you're thinking about whether or not you need it, let me encourage you to go ahead with your purchase. Who can't find other things to do with their money other than throw it into the trash? You'll be glad you made the leap. As a Type II diabetic, the money my Foodsaver saves me is the difference between being able to afford my medications each month or going without. So, not only is my Foodsaver a money-saver for me, it may quite well be a lifesaver. What a blessing.
