The FoodSaver® V4865 2-In-1 Vacuum Sealing System
4865 Got to get this machine
I have been using my new foodsaver 4865 a few weeks now and its GREAT! The bundle with it is everything you could need. ie bottle stopper, Mason Jar sealer, and marinator. The biggest plus is something you wont EVER need! It comes with a 5 year warranty. It also fits in with all of my other stainless appliances.

Best unit ever!
This is my third Food Saver over the years. We use it all the time. I have enjoyed having the zip bag sealer always ready and not having to close and lock to vaccum and seal the bags. It is so easy to use. We just vaccum sealed a bushel of green beans, It was fast and easy. I would recommend this modelQ Enjoy

FoodSaver is the Best!
I have been using FoodSavers since the very first ones came out. I've only replaced my FoodSaver twice in all that time! And savings? Wow! I am positive that these machines have saved my family thousands over the years. Yes, I have tried one or two of the other brands - but I always come back to FoodSaver.

awesome, fairly easy to use, seals wonderful
This product is very innovative, easy to use, convenient and works so well, truly seals the product in, making it very economical to use and preserve foods. I think the price is a little more than I would give, but it is a wonderful product and I am a proud owner. We received this product as a sample to use.

Takes the hard work out of preserving food.
I have used other food savers, but this one wins hands down. It is easy to use the machine and it tells you if you are doing things right. It even tells you when you are finished. It has many features to use, and the one I like a lot is the vacuum sealer attachment. You can't go wrong with this food saver.

Had problems sealing
Machine appeared to be of good value and it looks great. The problem I had was getting it to seal. The first few bags sealed great, after that it wouldn't completely vaccum the out the air. If I have trouble again, it's going back. Can't speak to freshness yet, especially on the bags not completely sealed.

Just hope it keeps working like this.
We have bought 8 or 10 over the years. We use them quite a bit, and get irritated when they get hot and won't vacuum up the liquid, until you wait or use an ice cube,' Sure hope we're not disappointed in this one.
Makes for a long night of wrapping, if we keep waiting and waiting to seal the next bags.

If you have left overs like we do in our home, then this is the instrument for you. I say "instrument" because it is more than a machine. It is a tool, it's a precision device designed to save money. Designed to save space in your fridge or freezer. If it could play music it would be perfect. Buy one!

Since buying this Foodsaver, I have enjoyed using it a lot. It is very easy to use and the vacuum is much better than the first one I bought. The additional features on this machine make it one of the best I have ever used. I can't say enough good things about it. I strongly recommend it to everyone.

I HAD AN OILDER ONE ABOUT 4 YEARS OLD. I LIKE THIS ONE, IT DOES NOT SIT AS HIGH ON THE COUNTER, I DON'T HAVE TO PULL DOWN THE TRAY TO SEAL MY FOOD. HAVING THE VACCUM SEALER FOR THE VACCUM BAGS INCLUDED ON IT MEANS I HAVE ONE LESS APPLIANCE ON MY COUNTER.
HAVE USED IT TWICE ALREADY AND WORKS GREAT.

EXCELLENT product for the home!
This particular model is great for a family home. The model lower or above this one is not the one you are looking for if you want a Food Saver just for everyday family use! It is a beautiful model and looks great in the kitchen. It works perfectly and exactly the way it should and as advertised!

I especially love the Pulse-Vac feature of this model. It allows me to reseal bags like chips with out crushing them. Also to seal up things like bread or sliced cheese without crushing them. I also love the Marinator. It also helps keep batches of things like berries fresher longer in my fridge.

Keeps my food fresh in the freezer.
I bought my first foodsaver in 1996. Used it till I wore it out. Promptly bought another one, but it got lost in moving, along with some other appliances. Have missed it so decided I needed to get another one and have not been sorry in this one. Saves money, time and ugly food from the freezer.

Great product, BUT...
The BUT is about, like ALL of the food savers, the sealer overheats after about 10 to15 minutes of use and shuts down causing you to wait intermanably until it cools down. Then it happens again. Beyond annoying!
If they ever resolve the problem, I would give the product a 5 star rating!

I wore out my old food saver and tried not to buy another but I could not do without it. It saves food and I can freeze leftover meals just for two with ease. I can take out one complete meal for my husband any time of the day and it is ready in minutes. I love, love, love my food saver!

This food saver has made my life so much easier. It has saved our family so much money and time. I don't have to worry anymore about our food going bad before we can use it. Also is so much help when my husband goes hunting. I know that none of his hunt will go to waste. #FoodSaverContest

Love it!! Saving food and money!!
I cannot believe I did not do this years ago!! Really have thrown out so much food due to 3 refrigerators and freezers! Hard to stay on top of all of it!
Will share this with everyone I know! It is so helpful…especially when I buy great fish and meats and want to keep for a later date!

A Food Saver You'll Love Every Day!
This Food Saver does it all - seals bags, rolls, everything - quickly and easily! It not only has a small footprint, so that it doesn't take up valuable counter space, but also looks great in any kitchen! You won't be disappointed in this Food Saver and will save money, year after year!

protect your investments
This is our second FS, the first one lasted about 10 years, We went to a better model and are very happy with the ease of use. Yet to find out about freshness.
Our main use is wild game like Pheasants, very expensive to acquire and added expense to preserve is not an issue. Love it.

Received this product a little over a week ago and have already used it several times with great success. I love that it has a place to store the bag roll and a cutter built in, very convenient. I like the option of customizing the bag sizes, I tend to freeze and store in smaller portions bc I am a house of only 3. Although I did find I got a better seal with the premade bags. I will definitely be trying the zip lock bags and the containers so I can try the marinating function, that seems very cool. It has many features that I wouldn't expect like the marinating I mentioned and the ability to seal jars. It is a little big but really I'll take the storage compartment over a smaller model since you have to store the bags somewhere anyway. I received the product for free to sample and use so for me the value was fantastic but had I paid retail I would still say it is worth the investment. The food stays fresh and is easy to freeze in the portions you require. Definitely enjoy and would recommend this product.

The light bulb for me just recently came on regarding how much food I was wasting. It only took 42 years! This appliance is easy to use and is not an eye sore to look at if left on the counter. It's efficient design takes up less space than others. So excited to have bought this.

I love the built in hand-held sealing system!
I'm glad I waited for the new 2 in 1 system. One tug on the hand-held cord and it neatly retracts back into the base keeping everything neatly in place. I really like the variety pack which allows one to try out a variety of bags and rolls before purchasing a full order of something that might not exactly meet their particular needs. I use the "refrigerator" bags which are great for short term storage and for non-food items. If it's not a greasy item, I've washed them out and reused the bag. I am looking forward to trying the new freeze & "steam" bags for the microwave...hoping they will come out with in a smaller size later. I like to cook in bulk, then freeze into several smaller quantities for quick meals later. I tend to prefer the hand held sealer with pre-made bags, as sometimes I have a difficult time getting the suction started with the rolls. It is most likely because I am a new user as it often starts right away. I ordered a new roll and with practice will get it down soon. Overall -- I LOVE IT!

this product is a money saver
I truly love my new 2-in-1 Vacum Sealing Kit Food Saver. By buying in bulk and using my Food Saver I am able to save lots of money. And it's also a space saver, and it's so simple and easy to use. I am so glad I purchased my food saver, it has truly been a blessing.

I just upgraded to the 2-in-1 Foodsaver. I love it and couldn't be happier with my purchase! I love the versatility of being able to heat seal, seal mason jars and the zipper bags. I have saved so much money over the years, but I anticipate even higher savings with the new machine

Good machine....very useful!!
We had this a couple weeks now and used it for freezing garen produce, freezing leftovers, and packaging meat. Very please with the functionality and performance, I think we are going to get LOTS of use out of this super sucker!!! Definately a useful piece of kitchen equipment.

Love this machine!!!!
I love this machine so much, that I'm find myself looking for things to vacuum seal. I have been using Food Saver for at least 15 years, and that is with the same machine. It finally was getting tired so I retired it and bought the new one. Man am I glad that I did. This does everything except whistle Dixie. Of course I read the instructions that are very well written and easy to follow. I love that it has a wet/dry feature and especially the pulse button that is great for delicate items, such as bread or cookies, even delicate pastries. The accessory hose is retractable and I don't have to take it apart and store it someplace else, it just retracts right into the machine. I leave it on my counter, because I use it everyday. One thing that is great for is, I vacuum pack my sterling silver and I don't have to worry about them tarnishing. I especially like the zipper lock bags so that I can quickly take out lunch meat and or cheese and vacuum seal it right back up. Thank you so much for making a great product!!

Excellent updated product.
We have been using a food saver for 15 or more years. We use it to preserve foods and prepared meals for backpacking. The updated product from our old machine is an order of magnitude improvement. I can highly recommend this product for anyone requiring a vacuum packing system.

This product is awesome
This is one of the greatest products ever invented. It saves me so much money. I am on a very limited income and this lets me buy in bulk and fill my freezer and not to worry about my food spoiling. I love this product. It is my 3rd foodsaver and they just keep getting better.
