I have had this over a year now. No, I haven't done the math, but I know it saves money. Being a single woman, I still want to but the value packs of meat at that great price but don't want that freezer burn when it takes me awhile to eat it. There are also resealable bags you can buy, they're great for lunch meat and cheese. I use it on almost everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dairy farmer Great money saver!
I am a widow and money is pretty tight for me. This purchase has enabled me to save so much money! I keep it on my counter top so it is easy to access. For example, I purchase a package of bacon, cut it with kitchen scissors in three then put pack of 6 strips into a press and seal wrap package. I then put the bacon packages into a Foodsaver bag and seal it. When I want bacon I cut along the seal line, take out one small pack of bacon then reseal it and return to freezer. I talked about it with my mother and she bought one also! We both love it!

Replaced previous machine. This is #4. It appears to work. To soon to say it is great. Our last machine seem to stop removing the air from the bags? The problem was faulty bags! Figured the compressor wore out.

We purchased ours last year before the holidays and it is now almost a year old. It works absolutely wonderful with just one issue. One thing that sold us on this was that you could reseal potato chip bags and I have no idea why it's only worked 1 time out of 5 attempts. : ( Other than that, it has saved us a ton of money being able to seal bulk buying and especially sealing leftovers that without this, would be thrown out! Would have given 5 stars if the chip bag sealing worked every time.

I guess some people never learn. I have had issues with 2 other models of these units over the years and vowed never again. However this looked like an improved unit so i went for it. I should have heeded the reviews.....I had the same issue issue with the retractable handheld sealer. I was very gentle and did not yank hard on it. First use, fine, second use, fine, third use....nothing! This is a lot of money for it to break so fast. I guess I will return it as i am afraid that I will have the same problem again if I reorder.

I had to come back and reorder another, for my first one said good-night. This one is even better so far. Hopefully it won't disappoint me

I haven't used the item yet but I know I'm going to be so happy with this product! I have had the Foodsaver mini plus for years and it's never let me down. I did pull out the hose on the side to see if it was going to be a problem like most reviews said and it is faulty. I had to self feed it back in but I can deal with that. I think my new Foodsaver is going to be one of my most valued appliances!!!
