FoodSaver FM5480 2-in-1 Food Preservation System is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult Vacuum Area The vacuum area is just not feasable. It looks good but is not practical in everyday use. You have to hold the bag up higher or cut a significant amount extra on the bag to reach the vacuum area. Then you have to press both left AND right vacuum buttons at the same time which can be difficult when trying to hold the bag in the exact sweet spot for vacuuming. It becomes even more difficult when trying to vacuum oversized bags that overlap. Anyone who is familiar with these machines knows that any wrinkles or gaps in the bag will not work so trying to hold the bag perfectly, without wrinkles, and in the same area, while simultaneously pushing two buttons on seperate sides of the machine is just not realistic. All the other features work great but the difficulty of this machine vs the price makes this a non-recommendation for me. This is my 3rd food saver and honestly, it's always something with their products. I finally had enough and this one went in the trash can. I only wish better vacuum sealers were more competetive and accessible with their products but then I guess you get what you pay for...and this wasn't cheap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not last I received my FoodSaver FM5480 3 years ago for a Christmas present. I have used it less than a dozen times. I am still using the original bag roll that was supplied with the unit. It no longer sucks the air out of the bag. This is my second generation FoodSaver that I have owned. I had an original model that lasted five years before it wouldn’t vacuum seal 100%. I figured after five years and heavy usage it was time for a new unit. I am SO disappointed with the FoodSaver. I don’t know if this is an issue related to this model specifically but I couldn’t find anything online that would support this theory. I have an entirely unused box of food bags that I bought in anticipation of using my FoodSaver that will now collect dust. I was a loyal supporter of the FoodSaver but can’t recommend it at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Features!! Bought one for a friend for a house warming gift and loved using it at their house so much had to buy myself one! Loved the handheld sealer! Very convenient for the zipper bags (which are my favorite)!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the features of this machine. I've only used it once so far, but my items are now sealed and in the freezer, it was a little tricky making sure I had the bag edge lined up for the vacuum sealer process, but after a few attempts I got the hang of it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst food saver As you can see from the pictures the seal mechanism is very high. I could not hold the food up in the air and then push the buttons. While holding it in the air the bags would not lie in the sealer straight and therefore not seal. I ended up putting the bag on a stand. It still does not always vacuum. I hate it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So convenient and easy to use I bought this to replace a very old, no frills model that was starting to wear out. Absolutely love the automatic bag maker, and still the other features. I use this daily!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for us We have been Food Saver owners for a number of years. This is our 3rd unit -- a definite upgrade from our earlier models. The earlier ones worked great but this new one allows us more vacuum seal options. And it requires less counter space. My only complaint with Food Saver is that there are so many model numbers that it makes it hard to figure out what unit is the right one for us. But this one is great. Does everything we want it to do -- canisters, wine bottles, bags, stores the bags, etc.
