Product Description

Amazon.com

Vacuum sealing keeps food fresh and flavorful three to five times longer than traditional storage methods by removing all air, the principal cause of food spoilage. FoodSaver's patented VacLoc bags, which work with this kit, are safe for boiling, microwaving, freezing, and refrigerating, so a sealed bag of frozen veggies can just be dropped into a pot of boiling water. The bags also can be washed and reused, are dishwasher safe, and are recyclable. The Vac 300 is easy to use. Put food in the bag, place the open end of the bag into the vacuum channel, close the lid, and press down. Meat and chicken are now safe for up to three years and fish up to two years in the freezer. Lettuce can stay crisp for weeks instead of a few days. You can even create your own frozen dinners (much yummier than store-bought!) by vacuum packaging leftovers right on the plate. --Doree Armstrong

We both found the machine very easy to operate and work with.
Donna Amspaugh
This item works by suctioning the air of the bag, sensing when it has suctioned out enough air, then sealing the bag.

I purchased this product for myself and as a gift for a family member.

Excellent product! I've had a Tilia FoodSaver Vac for about 9 years (I asked for it for my birthday) and have never had a problem with it. If the person who said that one corner didn't seal will check the rubber on the lid, it may have slid to one side and isn't making contact with the bag when trying to seal it. This would make it not seal completely. No one has offered hints to make using the Tilia FoodSaver Vac more economical or practical so here are some suggestions: (1) When making a bag, if the meat(as an example) is a steak 8 inches long, make the bag at least 12 inches long. The reason for this is that the bags can be washed and reused over and over until they're too small to use and still seal.
(2) After sealing the bag, there is about an inch of waste bag material on the end you just sealed so take a felt tip marker and write on that end, what it is, the weight, and the date. When you open the bag to use the "meat", cut off the end you wrote on, wash the bag, reuse it and write on the new end when you seal it again. (3) For sanitary purposes even though I wash the bag, when I reuse it for meat, I wrap the meat in plastic wrap before putting it in the bag. (4) If you want to put liquid in a bag for sealing, put the liquid in a zip lock bag and freeze it and when it's frozen, take the contents out of the zip lock and put it in a Tilia FoodSaver Vac bag and seal it as you normally would. If you try to seal a liquid in the bag unfrozen, the vac will pull the liquid into the motor and ruin it. I hope this helps some of you.

P.S. To thaw the meat I run HOT water in the sink and immerse the bag and leave it to thaw quickly. Thinner meats like chops or some steaks thawing will take about 15 minutes and naturally thicker ones take longer.

This is the low-end, no frills, stripped model of the Tilia family of vac-packing tools.

They all rely on the same principle for achieving vacuum inside the bag: a special, patented bag material where one side is lined with tiny channels which keep the food in but allow the built-in pump to suck the air out.

I bought this model on a whim and it stayed in the pantry unused for months until a few weeks ago when I started a diet which involves portion control. Many meals include 4 oz of lean protein such as grilled chicken breast, so I end up buying a large package of chicken breast at Costco, grill it all at once in my T-Fal grill (also purchased from Amazon), cube it, weigh 4 oz portions and vac pack them all into individual servings that go into the freezer. The frozen portions are very convenient to put in a lunch bag and microwave in the office (don't forget to puncture the bag first!)

For this type of usage I found the 6" rolls to be more convenient than the standard roll that comes with the machine because it requires less cutting.

Although the vacuum feature will only work with the patented bag material, you can also use the FoodSaver to reseal most types of plastic bags.

You should know that Tilia offers more expensive models with added bells and whistles you may like, such as built-in bag storage and sliding cutter, and an accessory port, bundled with accessories like special canisters; but if you only need basic vacuum packaging functionality you can't beat the price of the inexpensive Vac 300.

I actually use the Vac 500, but the solution to many of the problems I read about here is to replace the lower seal and/or the upper seal unit. Both of these are easy to replace and a simple call to Tilia with the problem will result in FREE REPLACEMENTS.
I just did this for my 500 and I am back in sealing business.

I have had my Vac 300 for about 1-1/2 years and never had a problem with it until just this past month. Now the left side of the sealing strip will not seal and I did not realize that until days later when I went back into the freezer. My brother swears by this product but has purchased a more expensive unit. I plan to also "upgrade" to a better level because when it works, you can't beat it, and once you get used to it, you can't be without it!

I purchased this food saver vac 300. My husband and I were so anxious to receive it that we both looked for it to arrive daily. We now wait in line to use it. He loves to reseal in the freshness of cereal and potato chips. I went to work on meat items for the freezer. We both found the machine very easy to operate and work with. I have put up meatloaf, stuffed green peppers, hamburg patties, steaks, pork roast and Italian sausage for starters. They really look great in the packages. I have told my grown children that when they want to purchase gifts for us to get more vacloc rolls and they all agree that is a good idea as they never know what to buy us that we really can use. We can't say enough about this wonderfull machine and are very very pleased with it.
