Rated 3 out of 5 by Smokeykent from Seals well The sealer is somewhat difficult to get the bag into position. Seals well when all is working.Need to put a platform in front of the unit to level the bag to make it easier to position the bag. The downfall of the unit is that the gaskets are not replaceable. We had the unit less than 3 years and it stopped sealing. the company is sending a 1 time replacement. Is it going to happen again in another 2 years or so. the model is fm5480. I would not recommend this unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fooled again 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 VickiL 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 hstarkey2013 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)!!!
