I use this everyday. It's sooo much better than the previous Foodsaver. I love that it is hands-free - you put the bag in, lock it down, and vacuum! For someone with carpal tunnel or arthritis, this makes it much easier than the ones on which you have to press. I love the way you can interrupt the vacuum cycle and go right to sealing which avoids crushing delicate items. I love the way the bags are stored inside and the canister hose is stored on the back - easy to locate.

One problem I've read about with the Foodsaver is the canisters leaking. I've decided that most likely this is not really a leak. Whenever it seems like my canisters won't vacuum properly, I check the lights to see if they are cycling properly. If not, I first unplug the hose and then reinsert, switching the ends. I don't know if the switching is the thing that makes it work or I'm just making a better seal when I do this but it usually that takes care of the problem. If that doesn't work, I wipe the seal and the rim of the canister with a damp cloth to make sure nothing is on it that will interfere with the vacuum. I've not had a "leak" since.

Now that my husband and I are empty nesters, it's easy to waste money on food. Usually, we have to buy too much which ends up spoiling or in small portions which is too expensive. Now, we can buy family portions and vacuum the leftovers for later. I use this on lettuce (keeps it two weeks with no brown spots or wilting), bread, fresh fruit & vegetables, nuts, meat, leftovers, and more. It's well worth the money!

I've had my Foodsaver for about a month and used it twenty or thirty times. It's amazingly easy to use and works great.

The only problem is that on the "Dry" food setting it doesn't seal the bag well enough to hold the vacuum, regardless of what kind of food is in it. But "Dry" is the default setting, so you have to remember to press the "Moist" button before every seal on every bag. It adds an unnecessary step to an otherwise flawless process.

I don't understand why they even have those two settings. The only difference is in the amount of time heat is applied to seal the bag, and it seems like you'd always want the best seal you can get. If "Moist" were the default setting--or if "Dry" weren't even an option--I'd have given this product five stars enthusiastically. Even so, it's the best kitchen appliance I've come across in many years, and I don't see how I managed so long without it.

I've had 2 Foodsaver vacuum sealers. The first one was fantastic. It was manual. I had to hold down the vacuum button and, when the air had been sucked out of the item, press the seal button. Plain and simple...best of all, inexpensive. It worked great for 10 years!!

About 3 years ago, I had to replace it. The only Foodsaver vacuum sealers I could find were automatic w/ dry & moist settings. The system would seal manually, but not vacuum manually. For about the first 6 months, the Foodsaver model worked pretty well, which ws good because it gave me a chance to 'adjust' to the new system. Since then, it's been unreliable. The heating, sealing strip works sometimes and sometimes not. The vacuum does the same. Turning the Foodsaver off doesn't reset it. Whether it works properly is the luck of the draw, and can change from bag to bag.

I am now looking for my 3rd vacuum sealer. Based on my experience with my first 'manual' Foodsaver, I WOULD give a manual model a try...if I could find one. But, I can't. I WON'T pay for the new models' bells and whistles, so called improvements that: 1. I don't need, and 2. don't function reliably. I will be purchasing another manufacturer's model.

For comparison purposes: I cook large batches of food about twice a year. I vacuum and seal family sized (4 person) servings that I can heat up and serve quickly. I want my family to sit down and have meal-time together AND not always be eating unhealthy fast food. My Foodsaver doesn't get worked to death everyday or even every week.

This is my 5th year of owning a Foodsaver. My first one lasted 3 years. Then I was told by the company that I could either order a rebuilt one or a new one. I chose a new one. It's working great.

I have abudant food supplies for a pet parrot and two rodents: a chinchilla and a hamster. Without the Foodsaver I don't believe I could care for them all as the problem of food storage would be too difficult. As for humans, it saves having to throw out so much food because of fear it is no longer good.

The problem, expressed by many on the web, is of the leaking canisters. I worked on this problem for years before finding the solutions. The company (Tilia, which just sold to another company - Jarden Consumer Solutions) representative told me to take out the rubber liner of the lid, soak it in warm water for 10 minutes, let air dry, resoak it and air dry again. Then of course put it back in the lid. This does work most of the time on the smoke colored canisters, which are called "Bulk Storage Canisters". But not all of the time, and I do not remove the rubber linings from the Designer Canisters (clear with white lids). They are too difficult to fit back properly.

The other important thing which I discovered on my own is timing. Set the smoke colored canisters (Bulk Storage) on the Sealing Adjustment Switch number "2." Only set the clear canisters with white tops (Designer) on the Sealing Adjustment Switch number "1".

Since discovering these solutions, I have never had another problem. I used to throw out canisters and lids frequently, being quite angry with Tilia for having been ripped off, as they are not inexpensive.

I don't know how I ever managed my kitchen without the Foodsaver. I would never wish to be without it again. It would be a true hardship.
