The FoodSaver® V4865 2-In-1 Vacuum Sealing System
Great accessories. Go through bags pretty quick
Looks great on the counter. I especially love the deli containers to store meals for the week. You do go through the rolls pretty quick with the room you have to leave(4in).. Great product otherwise!!

I have mainly used it for freezing food so far. The cooked food taste fresh when I thaw it out. So far no freezer burn. I like to buy food in bulk. So this appliance works well for me so far.

exceeds all expectations.
I was very pleased with my first unit, but this new one is even better. Ease of use and performance are beyond belief.
I can highly reccomend this unit to all. You will not be disapointed.

the 2 in 1 feature is very useful!
I have a college age daughter who I send care packages to... The Food Saver is ideal for insudring freshness on arrival.
I also find is very easy to use...can't wait to add more features!

Wife and I have used Foodsaver products for many, many years while raising our 3 daughters to save money by buying in bulk and freezing or vacuum sealing dry products into smaller bags.

It's now my favorite countertop appliance
Great just like all the other reviews said. With just a little practice you too will be a vacuum bag pro!! I love my wife's gourmet food as leftover just as much as the original dish!

Good value for the dollar.
Best performance is obtained when operated in a cool/cold environment. Anywhere below 55 degrees, it won't overheat and stall your process. Other than that, we're satisfied thus far.

A staple on our countertop!
We've had this unit for about a month now and we LOVE it! It's small enough that we we're able to keep it out on our counter so it's never out of sight; out of mind.
We've used it to seal all kinds of items and it works better than I imagined.
My husband and I searched and searched looking for a good vacuum sealer and I'm so happy we went with this one. Yes it's a little pricey but it's so worth it!

I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. I use it several times a day. Since I received it, I haven't discarded any food. Everything has been as good as the day I fixed it.

Big Improvement Over Older Models
I've been using a Foodsaver brand vacuum sealer for more than a year now. I found it a bit clumsy to use at times; it felt like I needed three arms to use it. This new model is amazing. All you need to do is place the bag into the machine, and it grabs the bag and seals it. It's incredibly simple to use.
Note: I did receive this product as a sample to review, but it did not influence this review.

realy easy to use
I had a older model the v825 and the vacume was getting hard to seal beg and new seals are not available for it . The new sealer is alot more simple to hold bag and seal .

This product has great features
We upgraded from another vac sealer to the food saver and it is the best product we have bought thus far. It looks good, is so easy to use, and recommend it to everyone.

The 2 in 1 Food Saver great .
This product has made it so much easier to package and store food purchases in bulk which saves me money in the long run and storage space my freezer and refrigerator.

I bought this as a gift for my mom & had the opportunity to use it myself. I am EXTREMELY pleased with this product. Even thinking about buying one for myself!!!

Love the Food Saver!!
The Food Saver is incredible! I have used the vacuum for packages, the marinator, and jars. In all cases, it worked wonderfully. I highly recommend this product!

This food saver is easy to use.
This is our third Food Saver and it is the easiest to use. Making new bags is fast and simple. We like the attachment for sealing reusable vacuum storage bags.

This unit is better then any of the other foodsaver units I have tried .it is easy and fast to use eventhough it is a bit loud the quickness makes up for it .

Well worth the money
I am so glad i finally broke down and ordered my food saver. It is so easy to use. I have already packaged food that would have normally gone to the trash.

This is great, I replaced an older version, which still works great and also giving to my son. This works great and looks good sitting on the counter.

Very nice replacement for my old Food Saver!
I bought one of the original sealers and it has lasted until this year. This new Food Saver so nice, compact, looks very nice and is very easy to use.

Extremely easy to use and very fast
The unit was easy to set up and we started using it right away. It quickly seals the bags and pulls a vacuum faster than other units we have used.

Recieved the product quicly!! So far it has worked perfectly. Will update this review as time goes on. But as right now I could not be happier.

easy to use, works great
everything Works Great Although It Takes A Little Practice getting The Bag In Right. The Only Complaint I Have Is That The Cord Is Too Short...

Have only had for a short time. Have put meats in freezer simple to use. Have owned two others. That did not seem to work as well as this one

Great Machine... Good Price.
For years we have bought bulk meat. We have been limited though because no matter how well we package it freezer burn will set it.
Even after a short time (a month) hamburger will dry out and develop a freezer taste. That fresh hamburger that was so good is just ok after a short time and then only good if cooked on a grill after about a month or so of being frozen.
We bought this machine in Aug and immediately bought 20 Lbs of 85/15 hamburger so I could try out this sealer. I packaged a few 1 to 1.5 Lbs packages and the rest I made into 1/4 Lb patties and packaged them 4 to a pack.
I have been very impressed by how, after a few months, the hamburger has retained it's red color (unlike the quick browning we got before#. After 4 months it honestly looked as good as the day we packaged it.
I'm writing this because last night I used the last package of the patties that have been frozen for almost 5 months. They cooked #stovetop) and tasted like I had just bought fresh hamburger.
I am truly a fan of this machine. It's easy to use and seals completely the first time, everytime. I am very happy with the purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

This particular machine has many more features than my old one. Have had my old one for approx. 15 or more years. Hope this lasts as long.

This product is great for food storage.
We love our new Food Saver. We buy larger packages of meats and divide them into smaller packages, saving a considerable amount of money.

Easy as 1, 2, 3
Vast improvement from the old system that I had. My shoulders would ache from having to press down on top to facilitate sealing. Love it!
