The FoodSaver® V4865 2-In-1 Vacuum Sealing System
Best for food prep
This is an amazing investment. I am so glad I got this so my food can stay fresh much longer and can make food in advance and store in fridge or freezer. A solid go to device for any health and fitness person. I look forward to buying more and more sealer bags!

We have had several vacuum sealers and with this one it gets even better, I like not having to hold the bag and close down the tabs to start the sealing, this one seals in automatic mode and allows me to just line it up and let the machine do the work.

easy to use
We love the foodsaver. It's easy to use. We stored alot of our garden vegetables. Now I don't have to worry about frost burn on the food. I love the marinater. My husband uses it all the time. I make my own wine so the wine cork really comes in handy.

The NEW FoodSaverÂ® 2-In-1 Vacuum Sealing Kit
Great machine. I don't know why I waited so long to order. Was however disappointed to realize the accessory hose did not come with the kit. Since the regular jar sealer is included and the hose is needed to use it you would think a hose would be included.

I love this so far! My first foodsaver and I couldn't be happier! Customer service helped me pick out the right one for me! It looks great too! So far I have been able to seal corn on the cob, fresh broccoli, green beans and marinated chicken!!

This is my first food saver and it's so easy to use! Makes my freezer look so neat and organized and keeps my food fresh so much longer . I'm really impressed with the style and color as well, makes you want to keep it on the counter to show off!

very easy to use! I like the features!
We have used this machine to marinate stakes, freeze fresh caught fish, fruits and vegetables. I am sure next winter when we use the food it will even taste better knowing just how long it has been frozen and the freshness going into the freezer.

Easy to use and always ready to save my food!
The food saver bag rolls are one of my favorite features. I can create bags of any size for all types of foods - and for other uses as well.
I use the food saver to seal my grandmothers needlework prior to storage.
Quick, simple and effective!

Very easy to use
I debated about buying a foodsaver for years do to the cost. I'm so glad I finally bought one. I can stock up on meat and poultry and do not have to worry about freezer burn. If you have contemplated buying one....BUY IT; you won't regret it.

It has great features & help a lot in the kitchen
I am very happy with my new Food Saver. I love the accessory attachment and have used it with mason jars to keep my chicken stock and juice as fresh as can be, along with other staples for the pantry. The Food Saver itself is stylish and I really like the counter-top design so it doesn't hog too much space.
When making bags, however, my only issue seems to be one shared by other reviewers: it doesn't always catch the seam right away and I have to turn the machine off and on a few times in order for it to start sealing the one end of the bag. (and yes, I have read the manual several times to be certain that I am doing things properly.) That can be frustrating. Also, I notice that if I have sealed something and want to make a seal next, the machine will not recognize this and I have to turn off the machine and start the dance again. So this takes a bit longer than expected. But it does eventually seal. It just takes patience.
Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase and hope to enjoy it for many years to come. I'm certain you will too.

awkward to use
had trouble getting bags from rolls to vacuum, the clear side kept curling under and would not let machine pull a vacuum. also, the zip vacuum bags do not hold a vacuum, despite several attempts to make sure the zip seal was tight.

Very easy to use
So far I am extremely happy with this product. It replaced a previous model that after 5 years was still working fine. That model was given to a friend at church that I know needed it.

Easy to use
I purchased my food saver so i could buy bulk meat and not have to worry about freezer burn. I find this product easy to use. My only dislike is the sealing rolls don't seem to last long. Otherwise i would recommend this product.

FIRST FOODSAVER-GREAT PURCHASE
After buying a large quanity of meat, and my garden exploded with squash and zucchini, my friends recommended a vacuum sealer. After research, I chose the V4865 and went to town sealing everything. Easy to use and a lot of fun.

My first and I love it!
After buying another brand and a different style Foodsaver I settled with this one. I'm so glad I did, I love it! The only issue I have with it is the automatic vacuum feature. It takes a few tries to get the vacuum process going.

Worth it's weight in gold
I have to say that I am very pleased with the Foodsaver 2in1 unit. I have not had any prior experience with the product, and managed very nicely to bag up some fresh corn on the cob for my freezer, as well as using the jar attachment to seal my giardinere and peppers&carrots! They turned out beautifully! It's very easy to use, the manual spells everything out....just in case you have trouble....and clean up was a breeze. I've tried other systems in the past, and they were inadequate for my needs. Not only can I vacuum seal nearly ANYTHING with my new 2in1, it's much more attractive sitting on my counter than the old one I used to have. The only thing I would like to see is a dust cover to keep over it.....that would be a great addition to your accessories! The only issue I had was that I have a really, REALLY small kitchen and counterspace is at a premium. Other than that it is the best appliance I've bought in recent years! I got this unit to test and give my review on. The statements contained herein are those of my actual usage and my own opinion.

What's not to love?
I have been these machines for 15 years. I have worn three of them out. But I will not go without one in my house.
Never have to throw away my money. Just seal & date. How hard is that?
It really is a must have in any kitchen.

We just stepped up from a very old Food saver to the latest model. It is like moving from an early Volkswagen to a Cadillac. It has so many Great improvements! I wish I had it for summer garden but next summer will be here soon!

I love my food saver
I can now buy meat in bulk and not worry about it getting freezer burned. The stainless steel unit is very good looking and fits comfortably on my countertop. Easy to use. Watching for BOGO sales on bags cost less thsn freezer bags.

This is my second Foodsaver
I upgraded to a better Foodsaver, & I love it. I have not used all the features, but I have used it several times. It is automatic, unlike my older system. The food is kept fresh, & it looks good enough to keep on the counter.
June 24, 2014
This is our 1st vacuum sealer. We use it to prepare meals in bulk, then freeze the meats & veggies in individual servings. This works great because all we have to do each morning is grab a meat pack and a veggie pack for work.

Love my Food Saver
Got my Food Saver about a month ago and i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, my Food Saver!! It has been awesome! And it is fun to use!! I have not had any issues with vacuum seals or any operation of the machine!! I wish I had gotten one sooner!!

We loved everything it was supposed to do.
We loved our food savor. First time I have ever used one. My husband deer hunts so he cut the deer up and I used the food saver to package and seal. The only thing I have to complain about is I wished I d bought one 20 years ago.

new product is great
I have saved alot of food. I live alone and this food saver really helps me. I wasn't very happy when i went to COSTCO and found the same foodsaver alot cheaper.Like $ 129.95. This new foodsaver is the 3rd one I have bought.

2 yrs old and still going strong!
I purchased this unit 2 yrs ago and I just can't say enough good things about it. This was our second Food Saver. Originally we had purchased just a basic unit and I found that I used it so much it would pay to upgrade to a nicer one that I could use to marinate with etc.
For anyone "on the fence" about whether to spend the money on a vacumn sealer or not, do it!! My husband tried to talk me into one for several years before I finally decided to try it. I just didn't believe it would be any better than my old method of zip lock freezer baggies. Was I ever wrong!! I am the world's worst at buying on sale and forgetting about it until 1 or even 2 yrs later. Of course by then its freezer burned beyond recognition. Since I have owned Food Saver I have not lost one piece of meat! The other day I pulled some chicken out that was dated 2 yrs ago, it was still perfect. No freezer burn and tasted as good as it would have when I bought it.
When I saw that I knew without a doubt we had made a wise purchase with Food Saver.
Now I look forward to hopefully upgrading again soon.

Foods aver quality
Very easy to use just like the demo depicted. Haven't used all the features as of yet, but assuming they will also perform well. I like it so far. Lite years better than the cheap brand I used to have. Get what you pay for.
