Certified Refurbished not working goodI bought 2 of these , 1 for myself and 1 as gift for my niece in Alaska. Mine works good but I brought the other one to Alaska for here and it doesn’t always Vacuum properly so hoping to somehow get hers returned as Alaska is expensive to ship to.

Hard to use and does not seal half the time.I bought it as an upgrade to the FM3941 I already have. It does not work near as well and I can not recommend it. Shame on me for not keeping the packaging or I would have returned it.

Refurbished? Can’t tell by looking at, or using itI had to buy another food saver type system as we moved & I can’t find my vacuum sealer.
I looked online for a good buy. I’ve owned three of the Food Saver machines over the last 30 years. The first one was workable, but every new one I’ve bought since has been better than the last!
This one is a hybrid compared to a model T.
They have improved every part of it. Functionality is great now! Remember the last one I bought was at least ten years ago. The roll of bag material is hidden underneath & is always accessible. The machine is able to seal the end of the bagging material, then you pull the sealed end out to the length of bag you need, clamp the bag slide the cutter and your bag is ready to fill up. The next bag is now sealed and ready to measure out & cut. All in one motion!
There’s now choices for sealing the bags that are already programmed into it.
Pretty cool. I already have told family & friends about it.

Great Idea. Poor Execution.Difficult to use solo. Appears to be non-serviceable while other models have parts like gaskets available.
DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL unless you like disposable appliances.

Counter Top sealing using a cereal box.Have had a vac sealer since the mid 80's still works, bought this machine about a year ago because of features and it looks great on counter and gets more use.
This sealer works great.......Now here is a great tip,............ when sealing using this model put a box of cereal ( reg. size ) laid sideways in front of machine to hold the filled bag even with the sealer, now you can insert into vac and see it in window without holding bag, now it is easy to push both sides to seal. On the old model I used a 1 1/4" cutting board serving the same purpose as cereal box to make bag even with machine.
(The pushing both sides has been eliminated on the upgrade of this model.)

Love the brand hate this modelI love this brand of product but this model is horrible . I paid full price for mine too . It is so difficult to try to hold the bag and press the door at both corners that it almost takes two people to seal a bag of food . I was super disappointed . I loved my old one had it for gosh at least ten years before it broke . This one is so bad I’m sure I will be replacing it long before it breaks .

Love FoodsaverBeen using foodsaver products for over 20 years. I like this model, but a little more difficult to figure out and operate. But still like it.
