Foodsaver FreshSaver Handheld Vacuum Sealer w/Charging Base
You Will Love This!
I couldn't find anything that kept my lettuce fresh for more than a week. My husband likes those bagged salad mixtures that are kind of expensive and they didn't last long either. He was so amazed that he wanted me to teach him how to use it too. Now we're both using it for everything and I ran out of bags. You will have to buy them from the official Foodsaver website. The shipping is about $8.00 but you get a lot of bags so over all, it's well worth the price
What a waste of money
This seals a bag for a short while (a couple of hours) and then all the air gets in. What a complete waste of money. I bought this around this time last year and wish I had returned it right away to get my money back. I never use it because it doesn't work. It's collecting dust. It's worthless. Would you like it?
Small Package With Big Power
Love this! Works excellent. Small foot print. Takes up like no room on your counter!! Small request please add more bags with this system!! Will get plenty of use. 100% happy
Super Small Sealer
I love this product !!! I'm single and buy the family packages of steaks, seal each individual one and freeze. Also great for lettuce, cheese, cold cuts and breads. This product works great, no air leakage and I've reused the bags. I am careful about the sealing of the bag and make sure nothing is in the way of the seal or vacuum port (always vacuum on a flat surface). Great for someone on a fixed budget.
Don't Take Apart End Vacuum Part To Clean!
This was overall a fair piece of equipment. I found the suction "fair" . I ordered the bags to go with it; however, a number of them didn't seal. My guess is the seal part was defective or there was a hole in the bag. My biggest complaint is that when taking the bottom plastic piece off the machine to clean I had to take the grey pliable rubber piece off of that since juice had gotten up in it. It must have been vacuumed sealed on from the factory because it cannot be put back on. Not sure if I wasn't supposed to take it apart so it could be my fault. If so, I'd be concerned about getting the piece clean. The sealer is now sitting on my counter.....unable to use! I'll contact FoodSaver to see if they offer a replacement part. If not, I really couldn't order again. Sorry FoodSaver....I have your other equipment and they work great!
I used this product just long enough for the 30 days to be up. Stopped working. Does nothing. Very disappointing!!! If you order this, use it alot before the 30 days so you can return it.
WORTH THE PRICE
I purchased this item last December and it has been such a help. We use a lot of cheese and this keeps what we don't for weeks in the refrigerator. It has great power and I have never had a problem with motor. It sets right on the counter and matches my other kitchen appliances. I would buy this as a gift. The bags are used over and over and have always held their seal.
Awesome Guarantee Foodsaver
Purchased this hand-held sealer on Sept 9, 2112. Yesterday it had no battery life. Since it was a 1 year guarantee, I called Foodsaver direct and am delighted to report they are sending me a replacement unit. They did not require the unit to be returned. Great service. NOTE - customer service said unit is not to be left on charger all the time. Charge only when battery low.
Waste of money!!!
This is by far the biggest disappointment of anything I've bought from QVC. Don't waste your money!! The hard container NEVER worked. Some bags worked, others don't work on subsequent uses. So very frustrating! Sealing a bag and putting it in the freezer would re-inflate and allow air back into the bag. What a waste of money and food!!
You Can Live Without It
When technology works- it's wonderful. When technology doesn't work- then we can live without it. I've had this unit for a year and I have the following comments-
Pro- When the bag works it is convenient.
- When bag works it keeps food fresh.
- When bags works they are reusable.
Cons- Not all bags work. I have a failure rate of about 1/4. The new bag will vacuum seal then the air will leak in.
- Not all bags are reusable. Most bags will fail after several uses.
- Short battery life. The unit must be charged in 24/7 or the battery will die.
When it works, it's wonderful and convenient. Otherwise think about it.
It no longer works. Its in the charger likes it charging but when I try and use it nothing happens. Really would like to get a biger one but if it does the something as this one I don't want to purchase.
good buy for the money
where can I find the bags for this hand held food saver?
