The FoodSaver® V3485 Vacuum Sealer
Tried the marinator and it does a great job , made 20 lbs of sausage and had it packaged in record time ( for me ) . I especially like all the automatic features , a real time saver . Have recommended this machine to others .

This is my second Food Saver. The first was a horizontal V2440, which I also liked. The upright feature of the V3485 is convenient - no lid to open and close. And the auto vac/seal feature is nice. It works about 95% of the time. When it doesnt, it usually is b/c the bag is too full and the edge doesn't go in far enough. Ive had this for about 2 years and it works like a charm. Good price and very durable.

This was a gift to my daughter.
After using my Food Saver for several years, I realized my daughter would benefit. Several members of my family have been using it for years, freezing bulk purchases and preserving fresh greens in the refrigerator. I put soup in paper bowls, pre freeze it, and seal it in Food Saver bags. It's easy then to drop into serving bowls and heat in the microwave

Would not ever want to be without a Food Saver
I just bought this one from you for my daughter in law for her birthday, you would have thought she got a diamond ring for as happy as she was with it.
My son said she spent most of the day getting everything bagged and loves it.
I myself have had 3 of them and would never be without one, they are high quality, no mechanical problems, super easy to use, bags reusable, there is not anything you can't do with it.
You have a Class Act Item, hope you continue with this as there are many out there who are non believers, they have to try it to know how much they save on food they don't throw away because of freezer burn.

I don't think that most people know that the vacuum sealer can be used to seal potato chip bags. Just insert the edges of the bag and seal it without the vacuum. Cereal bags can also be resealed to keep cereal fresh between uses. I especially like to reseal potato chip bags because a large bag of chips will stay fresh a lot longer. Each time, it is like opening a bag of chips for the first time.

This is my second foodsaver unit. My first one was a different model was manual, cost more and gave me much grief.
I am so glad that I purchased my new unit directly from Foodsaver.
They have great customer service, speedy shipping and I purchased this unit on sale. There is a big difference between manual and automatic. If your going to purchase this model you will not be disappointed.

This is the biggest piece of junk I have ever owned. Bought it a Sam's club and the quality matched the price, cheap! It will not heat seal a bag until you take it in and out of the machine several times. Would seal one or two bags then not seal another one without a red light flashing on and off for several more failed attempts to seal the bag. Once the vacuum pump would start it would pull the air out on one bag and then not take all the air out of the next 2 bags. After a half hour job took over an hour the vacuum sealer found it's way to the trash. It is Junk!

I love my FoodSaver! My daughter-in-law has been wanting one of her own, so I purchased this as a gift during the black friday sale. Got a great deal, and she was thrilled with the gift.
