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.
Got this for my wife who has a habit of buying meats in bulk when on sale and storing it in freeze, only to later find out meats are freezer burned and just taste awful --- even when double ziploc bagging and making sure the meats are wrapped tight....
She told me how skeptical she was about these foodsaver sealing bags. Jumped on a sale, and got it for her anyway
She was blown away how easy it is to use. Loves that she can custom cut the bag to any size so meats can be portioned perfectly for the meals. Tried it out with a bulk set of meats both pre-marinated and unmarinated. I'm excited to see the result of eating meat frozen for a couple weeks.
Will report back after we eat the meats. But for now, this unit gets a 5 star for COMPLETELY ease-of-use factor, plus the form factor is small so it fits in our pantry drawer easily. Wife is happy i surprised her with it. (bonus!)
Was really looking forward to getting this machine & packaging tomatoes and other veggies from my garden this year. I was quickly left disappointed when I realized there were quite a few things not right with it. First of all, it didn't vacuum all the time, maybe 1 of every 3 times I tried, it also would get stuck in the "vacuum and seal" mode and not shut off or progress to "seal" and when in seal mode... it melted the bag numerous times... maybe I just got a lemon
I’ve had a few different Foodsaver machines over the years. This is the smallest and simplest and does the same great job. It was a bit cheaper, takes up less space, gets the job done and I’m very happy with it.
This is not easy to use... It is time-consuming to cut the bags and if you don't prop up the bag it won't suck properly. Not at all good for anything liquid, like if you have a bit of gravy on some roast beef... it won't seal and makes a big mess... I am sorry to have wasted my money on this.
AL USAR LAS BOLSAS O MATERIAL PARA SELLADO, NO SE LOGRA HACER EL VACÍO NI SELLAR COMO DEBERÍA DE HACERLO. LE CUESTA TRABAJO HACER EL VACÍO. INTENTARÉ CON OTRA MARCA DE BOLSAS A VER SI LOGRO MEJORAR EL VACÍO. EN UNA OCASIÓN, METÍ LOS PRODUCTOS A LA OLLA CON AGUA Y DESPUES DE UNOS MINUTOS ME DÍ CUENTA QUE ESTABA UNA DE LAS BOLSAS LLENA DE AGUA Y LA OTRA EMPEZANDOSE A FILTRAR.
Super recomendable, desp de 5 meses siguia comprimido y en el cogeldor el último paquete de 10 tortillas que le mandé a mi hijo europa .(Cabe señalar que lleva 5 meses por que se le fue hasta la parte de atras de congelador y cuando las encontró fue como oro para el Y yo comprobé lo perfecto que se mantuvo el empacado al vacio)
