K31151 - Oliso Freshkeeper Vacuum Sealer w/Zip Disc & Bags
I really like using my Vacuum Sealer! I am single and its hard to cook for 1 person so I always have left overs. Its great to make small potions and freeze to take out for lunches for work. Better hen using ziplock bags that get freezer burn. Its so easy to use. i use it alot.
2nd is now 1st
this is my 2nd vacuum sealer from QVC. I have had a seal-a-meal for 5 or 6 years now and a few times it just wouldn't seal. So when I saw this on clearence I figured it wouldn't hurt to have a back-up. Well just love it, the ziplock is great. I will continue to use the seal a meal for certain things, but the Oliso Freshkeeper is now my #1 go to sealer.
Would not recommend
I could not get this to ever seal. I also used the disk each time and tried several times.
Would not hold the seal. Used for 30 days thinking maybe there was a learning curve, but was never able to keep bag sealed more than a few minutes. I made sure to use the disk to close the bags, but the still leaked. Returned product.
Having just recently received this item, I cannot attest to it's long-term durability; otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. SIMPLE to use and so terrific for freezer and refrigerated items! Too ofter it seems that items are demonstrated and appear so easy and convenient to use, but when one tries the item at home, it proves to be not so easy. The Oliso is EXACTLY as demonstrated and small enough to keep on my countertop for easy access. We can't wait for our veggie garden to ripen and will use this vacuum sealer extensively to package produce without the worry of freezer burn. I LOVE this item so much that I am now going back to purchase one for our motorhome. PS, my husband loves it too!
Fits the Bill
This is exactly what I have been looking for--easy to use and a reasonable size. My only issue is with the on-air presentation of the bag sizes. It didn't seem clear that the smaller bag can't take frozen items in a small box, such as 10 ounce boxes of frozen vegetables. I therefore thought the large bags would be too large and opted to buy an order of the smaller ones, since we are just three people. Mistake. Otherwise I am pleased with the unit itself and immediately used up all the large bags on packages of chicken and veggies.
I was very disappointed in this product. For some reason, every time I used it air would seep in causing the food to spoil. I wanted this product so that we could buy more in bulk and save some money. Instead, we have lost money by having to throw away food.
This item is going back. The only positive thing I can say is that QVC customer service was wonderful.
i have used this and loved it the bags are a good size but half the bags wouldnt keep a good seal guess becease of the zip closer has a little leck but i will not say dont buy everyone different try it ,may be for you but wasnt for me so mailing to back
hoped it would be better
After reading all the great reviews thought would be hands down a keeper, until I used it! It does a good job at sealing it, until it releases it and lets in some air, which results in freezer burn. Sorry to say it has to go back, did a horrible job.
a great money saver
I am so pleased with this product! It is easy to use and I will use it often. Make two meals and freeze one. A real time saver!
Everything I've wanted in a vacuum sealer
I love this product and it's one of the best things I've bought on the Q! I have been watching and wanting a vacuum food storage appliance for several years and found they were not well reviewed (I guess THAT'S why I see so many at Goodwill...) or they did not fit my needs. Also, I had a hard time getting my head around the idea of the roll of bags - they just seem fiddly and I was concerned I wouldn't be able to find refill for that model/size of sealer. This device is about half of the price of other sealers, is easy to use, has a small footprint (about the size of a hardcover novel), and uses bags that are first sealed with a zip lock, then inserted to the sealer slot for sealing. I bought the refills of both sizes while they are still available here - it seems to make more sense to select a bag each time based on your need for that item, versus shopping for bags to fit your sealer. I tested mine before sending the other one I purchased as a gift - and have no worries at all about giving this! A tip: position the zip key circle onto the bag BEFORE pressing out the extra air - this makes it ready to go and helps prevent air from re-entering the bag.
small but powerful
this is so easy to work, and it works good. i only wish the bags you get were larger so you could put more food in them.
