To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
El aparato funciona bien, absorbe el aire de las bolsas, las sella bien y también el de los tuppers. Pero la manguera retráctil en pocas semanas ya no retrae. Es decepcionante que con solo semanas ya tenga algo que no funciona. Y uno de los tuppers tampoco sella.
I have had FoodSaver vacuum sealers for over 20 years and most of that time was with the same model. It was time to replace the FoodSaver that I had so I started looking for a newer model that would suit my needs. Judging from the description and the reviews, I thought this model might be the one and might have improvements to my older model. This model made vacuum sealing foods more time consuming than my older model, but it does require less counter space to use, which is a plus.
My first project to use this sealer was to package basmati brown rice that I cook in bulk for use in multiple meals.
- Bags can be made in advance - seal one end and cut. This process used much more of the roll bags than my old sealer. About 1/2 inch was below the seal. - Sealing the pre-made bags after filling took much more time trying to get the machine to grab the ends of the bags, and again, there was much more waste of the bag as another 1/2" was required to get the machine to sense the bag. - This sealer had the same problem as my older sealer. If you move too fast in making seals, it needs time to cool off before you can make another seal. - After having sealed all of the bags, I later found that some had air in them after they froze. This is not a problem that I had even with my old sealer.
I decided to return this vacuum sealer as it made the job harder and more time consuming, and the seals did not hold well. For me this was a deal-breaker and would not recommend this sealer. I hope this review was helpful for you.
