The FoodSaver® GameSaver® Titanium Vacuum Sealer w/ Bonus Offer
I needed new foam on my unit in order to remove all the air from packages. I ordered them on line from FoodSaver and they were delivered to my door in just a couple days. Took me less than 1 minute to install them. Tried it....works perfect again. I wish all companys were this efficient.

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.

Worth every penny
Awesome. Thats how i felt after using this item. I am a bulk purchaser, couponer, and prepper. My husband does both hunting and fishing. So I did alot of research on this item before I finally decided to order it. It is worth every penny. When we seal, we usually are doing a couple hundred pounds at a time. We have NOT had a problem with it overheating. It does do up to 53 seals at a time. That is the biggest batch we have done. We do use ours for non-food items also, and this ties in with us prepping. It does not seal mylar bags but it will vacuum them. I gave this item a 5 star rating because I honestly believe that this is an amazing vacuum sealer.

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!

Tested & Proven
I purchased this unit in March 2014 and it had limited use until June and our trip to Alaska. Starting in June I have used the machine several times and multiple repetitive seals while processing salmon. It has worked flawlessly and without problems. Since being new the locking latch works a bit stiff, but so far has not been a problem. I have been able to test the latch on a new unit and it works the same way. I should also mention the unit is bigger than most other models, but I am willing to give up space for quality. I highly recommend this unit if you are processing larger quantities of goods and are looking for a above average machine.

This unit replaces my twenty year old professional II. Disappointed in size and usage. I covers up the counter over my dishwasher. Very hard to lock down and release lid. It runs for over thirty minutes after use, with no way to power off. Interior is black which makes it difficult to see where I am placing bags to seal along with having to wrestle the bag while locking down lid. I have to use a 11/2 " cutting board in front to help seal/vacuum or an extra four inches of bag. It is Impressive to look at, had to paint the rubber covered buttons to see the lettering on them. I do not know about cleaning the controls after using.

There are two small faults with this machine.
The two things I would like to see different on this machine. # 1. Make the open store close handle eaiser to work, it is very stiff. # 2. This machine is very high, even sitting on a bench you have to hold the bag up to get the proper vaccum and seal or make the bag longer than the three inches extra to leave it lay on the bench, the cure for this is to find someone to make a riser for in front of the machine that puts the bag level, or just a little below, the level of the machine, (I used two pieces of 3/4 hardwood 20" x 14" laminated together for this. After doing this I have found the machine much eaiser to use.
