Vacuum sealing food is certainly not a new concept, as products in this category date back decades. In recent years, however FoodSaver has become one of the de facto brands customers turn to when they consider vacuum sealing options.
Although some consumers new to the brand may think that “FoodSaver” is a single product, there are actually a wide variety of products available, making the brand affordable to nearly everyone.
The lower end models do not come with all of the bells and whistles that the higher end models do, although they all possess the same basic function of vacuum sealing food. Some of the higher end models include automatic feeding, marinating options, etc.
Overall FoodSaver is a brand that boasts relatively high ratings and customer satisfaction. Those who use the product most find that they are able to store meats and leftovers for long periods of time, which can ease the monthly grocery budget.
As to which brand to purchase, you may want to reference the chart on this page, which shows all of the primary differences. If you’re on a budget, but still have a little money to spend, you may want to opt for the V3460, which is an entry-level sealer in their automatic series. You can find that one for around $150.
A minority of users have complained that the unit begins sealing before all the air is pulled out of the bag. This is typically due to a bad or faulty gasket. The company offers a 1 year warranty, and should be able to provide new gaskets if this happens to you.
