Product Details

Description
This FoodSaver Multi-Use Food Preservation System combines the power of a heat sealer with the convenience of a retractable handheld vacuum sealer, in one unit. Use the heat seal strip for long-term preservation in the freezer, and the handheld sealer for short-term preservation in the fridge or pantry. This Food Preservation System keeps food fresh up to 5x longer in the freezer compared to ordinary storage methods, and also helps prevent freezer burn. FoodSaver can also help fridge and pantry items stay fresh for longer. For even more ways to use your FoodSaver, try the sous vide setting to seal food for delicious sous vide cooking, the pulse setting to safely seal delicate foods, the marinate setting for flavor in minutes, and the dry and moist settings for an airtight seal, regardless of the type of food you're sealing. This unit's sleek, modern design features a stainless steel finish that looks great in any kitchen. So you can make the most of your FoodSaver system, it comes with six 1-quart vacuum seal bags, five 1-gallon vacuum seal bags, five 1-quart Easy Fill Bags, six 1-quart vacuum zipper bags, five 1-gallon vacuum zipper bags, one expandable and two 11" x 16' vacuum seal rolls, a Portion Pouch roll, a bottle stopper, and a 10-cup Preserve & Marinate Container.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Review Has anyone noticed that 20 out of the 24 5-star reviews were "incentivized reviews" (as well as 4/7 4-star reviews)? When you write a review, it asks if you received the product for free, so I'd have to image that FoodSaver is buying off reviewers to cover for the known defect in this product. I purchased a faulty one. I was sent another faulty one through warranty. Now I can't get a response (although perhaps that is because the customer service department is overwhelmed with claims on this product). I would actually really, truly, love a FoodSaver that worked correctly - which is why I bought one in the first place.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after two uses We bought the VS3182 less than 3 months ago. The first use was great and then today we attempted to package and seal several packages of salmon and lamb chops. We used the hand vac for the zip lock bags. It worked great but then we went back to the cut bags for the salmon and nothing worked. We cannot change modes, in fact we can't do anything with it. I read the troubleshooting pages but nothing addressed the problem. Sadly we are very disappointed and intend to return it to Costco. We even purchased additional rolls and bags but without a functioning unit those are pretty much useless as well. I would not recommend this model to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A step down Costco version of the 3182 model purchased in 1/21, and got it because a replacement drip tray was unavailable for the one I had. I've owned 4 foodsavers over the years and this is, by far, my least favorite. The vacuum pump is wimpier than the others, so sealing takes longer. The ergonomics are awful, as you need to position the bag end in the drip tray, hold it in perfect position with one hand, while throwing a lever to lock the lid and then pushing the vacuum button. Sounds simple until you try to do this with wet hands, or a large bag of moist food items. The Foodsaver concept is great, but why can't they just settle on a product design that actually works instead of offering numerous models that do basically the same thing with subtle twists that are impossible to differentiate among before purchasing?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We Are Still Undecided The first food saver unit we purchased is still working flawlessly (purchased several years ago), but elected to purchase an upgrade due to all of the new features. I purchase the VS3120 which appears to be a derivative of this model from Target. We have used the unit a handful of times and it no longer vacuum seals. I am not sure if the component supplier was changed over the years or the contract manufacturer may be different, but this unit was a lemon. Fortunately we are still able to return the unit to Target and intend to do just that. I am trying to determine whether or not we should purchase the same unit, an upgraded unit, or a different brand/provider all together. We are extremely dissatisfied with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting freshness This was such a treat! We love to make beef Jerky and thought the food saver would be great to save and ship our beef jerky to our family out of state. This product was all we wanted and more! We love the marinating dish. It is so easy to use and with the vacuum sealing technology the marinade is drawn through the meat and makes a very flavorful meal. We have used this product on Beef, Chicken, and Fish. We are excited to try this system on vegetables. It is made really well and comes with everything you need to get started. Overall, we are very pleased with this product and cant wait to try more foods to save and preserve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not basic at all! Good machine for the price I bought this back in March and have not had any issues with it. The first accessory I bought was the large mouth jar vaccum sealer adapter. Initially I thought that I was missing the hose and then got discouraged after getting weak seals by putting that retractable ziploc bag sealer flush on the lid adapter to no avail. I was going to order the small lid adapter and accessory hose but no supply was available. Tonight I did some searching on makeshift ways to vaccum seal my jars and discovered that the machine DOES has an attachment for the jar sealer attachment, they hid it very well! Pull out the retractable cord and separate the plastic pieces where the black plastic meets the clear plastic. There is a small nipple in there that attaches directly to the lid sealer without an additional hose or adapter. See photo below! You're welcome! Foodsaver should send me a small lid adapter for being great customer service help on their page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SEALS GREAT If you do not put the top of the bag to about the top of the drip tray, then no, it won't seal properly. But if you do it right, it's AMAZING. Its called "user error". Just check out a YouTube video or something. I love mine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only worked for the first 3 vacuum. I bought this Costco version of it over the thanks giving sale. I wanted to love it. But unfortunately it only works for 3 vacuums. After that, it either doesn’t vaccine nor vacuums little bit and seal it. Too sad. I returned it to Costco today, but I can’t get the sale deal anymore. Now I better search which company makes working one....
