The FoodSaver® FreshSaver® Handheld Vacuum Sealing System - Purple
This isn't my first sealer. It is so handy to keep on my counter. I've used it for so many items - including keeping a wet washcloth to take on a trip. My favorite use is for baking/storing my Christmas cookies. I used to use containers in the freezer (often getting freezer burn). They're great for sending those cookies by mail out of town. They arrived in tact (no breaking). I just packed them & added bubble wrap between layers. Success. Keeping salad mix fresh is amazing. And don't forget keeping lunch meat/cheese fresh. Can't say enough how great this item is.

Wish this had been invented 40 years ago!
I LOVE this product! Very easy to use. It can be marked with item and date, notes, whatever. Take out what you need and reseal. With one hand. And it's quick! I wish I'd had it when I had little kids. But it is perfect for this little old lady, living alone and still cooking too much or needed to divide up bulk items or multipacks of meat, etc. I haven't had it long and it has paid for itself in savings for food I haven't had to throw out. I am ordering more bags now. I plan to make a week's worth of salad, divide it up, then for lunch all I have to do is dump it out! Fresh fruit for dessert? No problem.

Great when you don't buy in bulk
I bought these for my children for a Christmas present. I had to try one. It works as good as the big unit I have except you can't do as much. This uses the bags so you are limited with what you can do, but for people who can't buy in bulk because of the space, this is a wonderful product. It keeps the food items fresher longer and with the bags you can open and reseal items such as cheese or lunch meats.

The ease of use of this product is great.
I purchased a handheld Foodsaver for myself and have since
obtained two additional items that I gave as Christmas gifts. A
last one, purchased recently, was given as a house-warming gift to another friend. All three of my friends are box store members and report real savings by using this little machine to divide and store larger quantity goods. In addition, I possess a full-size Foodsaver which I use fairly frequently. A superb product!

Easy to use
I received this product free with my foodsaver purchase during a promotion, and I think it's great. I especially love that it's portable. I can charge it, then take it with me if I need it, and doesn't take up much room at all. The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't tell you when all the oxygen has been removed, so I'm stuck guessing if I've done it long enough or not.

I received this as a bonus when I purchased the '2 in 1' table-top unit.
WOW! what a great little tool. Perfect for the zip seal bags when I don't want to haul out the big unit. Also works on the ZipLock brand vac seal bags.
I rated the appearance 4, only b/c the color is more plum than purple.

Great for traveling and taking homemade food.
My husband is a truckdriver and tired of on the road food. I make portion size bags of daily meals and freeze them.
When he leaves he takes them in an ice box . The food has never been spoiled and he enjoys different meals each day all home made.
He is happy and so am I. Also we have been saving so much money.
