The FoodSaver® V2244 Vacuum Sealing System
This product is a real bargain!
My old Food Saver finally bit the dust, so I really needed a new one. My garden was great this year, and I came back from vacation with a cooler of fish on dry ice that needed to be better packaged. This model was just what I needed! It works very well. It is a little different from my old model in that when you press "seal," only a red light comes on (no noise) that tells you it is sealing. The light goes off when it is finished. When it is evacuating and sealing, there is a noise while the green light is on to signal evacuation; but then the red light comes on to signal sealing, and it is quiet. When both lights go off, it is finished. I really like the thicker seal line that this machine has compared to my old one. I also like the lever that is used to lock the bag into position, as opposed to pushing on the corners of the machine to lock and unlock it like my old one did. I find the lever very easy to use and like the fact that you always know whether it is locked or unlocked. This updated model has several very nice, new features, as I have described.

It's the base model but works and seals great!!!
I wanted to try one of these so I bought the base model to start out with. Did not go wrong with this purchase. I love it so far, The first rolls of bags went quick!

The product has a good price and works great.
We received our Food Saver promptly and are very pleased with it. It does an excellent job of preserving our food products. Even though we have to cut our own bags this is not considered and inconvenience.

compact and powerful
I've had a food saver mini for at least 14 yrs.
and it has been a very good vacuum sealer.i needed a vacuum sealer that was a Lil bigger so i purchased the v2244 cause it was on sale and so far it has done a very good job.

The best thing in my kitchen!
I have used the Food Saver sealer and canisters for many years and have never had any complaints. Even when I've had minor problems they have been solved easily and quickly. I would highly recommend this product to everyone.

I purchased this vacuum sealer to help up save money and it has. I have used it to seal fruits and veggies and am amazed at how much longer they last. The sealer is very easy to use. Love it!

would not be without one
The day my old one stopped (had it 5 yrs) I went on line and ordered a new one. Can't tell you what a wonderful product this is. By itself or with all the other attachments it is wonderful.

overall seems to be good product
Too new to rate but so far does what it says.
I don't understand why the heat seal feature kicks in when using the attachments to seal containers....huh?

Basic Food Saver
Very nice appliance. It is simpler to use than the one
I bought 10 years ago that just died. Again, the biggest
problem with any of the Food Savers is the amount
of bag waste when sealing. But, otherwise, I love it.

JUNK! JUNK! JUNK!
Worse piece of JUNK have ever bought!!!!!!!!!! Brand new and does not work. Doesn't seal bags and doesn't vacuum bags. If you have any brains, DON'T BUY!!!!!!!

It vaccuums and seals within :60, and is pretty easy to use. The only negative (if that) is that it's loud when working. Otherwise, its a great deal.

LOVED THE PRODUCT, JUST WISH IT HAD A CUTTER
BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT AND IT WORKED VERY WELL. tHE ONLY THING I DID NOT LIKE WAS THAT IT DID NOT HAVE A BAG CUTTER, WHICH WOULD MAKE CUTTING A WHOLE LOT EASIER. TOO DIFFICULT TO MAKE A STRAIGHT CUT WITH SCISSORS

not working that great
I've used it all of 3 times. It isn't sucking the air out all the way any more. So I'm not real pleased. I got it as a gift for Christmas 2010.

great food saver
this machine has been very convenient and easy to use. I am able to wrap food quickly and am confident that it will stay good until I take out of freezer and use. Made a good decision in purchasing.

I should have bought one of these a LONG time ago. I'm going to save so much money by not throwing out spoiled or freezer burned food! The product works great so far. I hope it lasts a long time!

simple to use
I am very pleased with your product and the ease of it's use. I have saved a lot of time and money by portioning out meals for future use. You have a great product!

Wish I would have bought this sooner. It's very easy to use and I can see where it's going to save my food from freezer burn.

Great for buying bulk and freezing individual servings. Also good for re-sealing cereal and chips (or whatever). I bought the jar sealer and deli containers, both are well worth it.

dont like the latch mechanism
I don't care for the latch mechanism on my 2244. As an older person I find it hard to use. Is there a better alternative? My old one required me to hold the lid and I liked it better.

product is good for the money. Wife doesn't think we'll use it too often because of the constant buying of bags
April 10, 2013
Excellent product. I'm already saving money and time. Just ordered the jar sealer also to help with canning season.

Love my Foodsaver! Easy to use and keeps everything fresh! The only slight down fall is the noise when it sucks the air out. But it works wonders!!

Great suck & sealer
I love this thing. Instead of putting a cloths pin on the potato chip bag, I just suck & seal it. Works with all kinds of chip & other bags.
