Now that I know what I'm doing I'm actually pretty happy with it! It's very compact, the ziploc-style bags are heavy-duty and reusable, and the vacuum seals are holding well. Overall, I'm giving it four stars because although it really is a great product, there are too many opportunities for users to make mistakes.
The bags that came with it are just fine when you learn to seal them properly. Being used to ordinary zip locks, I realized I was not following the instruction manual. Once you do, it is easy to use and seals last a long time. I have some items in my freezer that have been sealed over two months and the vacuum is still holding up.
What I found better than the ordinary bags are upright bags that I ordered from the company directly. These bags are great because they are reusable. The company says 10 times per bag, but I have used the same bag for the last month or so, sealing it daily after I take out coffee beans from it every morning. Unless you are doing something strange to the bags, I see no reason why it cannot work for a long time.
The ordinary bags have markers for the number of times you can use them. Don't be fooled! You can use them more than they say. Just seal in a spot close to the marked circles. Depending on what I am sealing, I have used a bag 15 to 18 times.
Read the manual. I have blenders and mixers and don't need to read instruction every time I buy one. With this, you need to follow basic rules (touch and release -don't hold down). Read it, follow the directions, and you'll be fine.
After three months and daily use (coffee), it is trouble free so far.

About 10 years ago I received a FoodSaver as a gift. It was great, but because it has a massive "counter footprint", within weeks it ended up in the garage where it remains. Also, the bags, you had to keep cutting shorter and shorter.Read more ›
I highly recommend it.
I've sealed a great number of fruits, vegetables, cheese, dried goods. I've only had a problem once or twice, in which instance I realized that there was an obstruction in the bag's zipper. After the problem was fixed it worked just fine.
This product is cheap, small, and very handy to have around. I'll be happy with my Frisper for years to come. These engineers are genius!
I recently received my Frisper and I found it to be contrary to the average review here. The first thing I noticed was its tiny size which neatly fits atop my kitchen counter. Tracking down something i could quickly "frisp" I chose to ignore the instruction manual and instead followed a brief but concise instructional video on youtube. Threw in some vegetables and a minute later I had a vacuumed seal celery.
A couple things to note, the bags are pretty awesome, the zip lock features works very well and even sticking a meal and poaching the bag works out nicely. On the rare occasion of an incomplete seal the manual has explicit instructions on how to correct it and even indicates with diagrams on diagnosing if your seal was done incorrectly. The one thing that did i found to be slightly frustrating is that for liquidy products you have to be much more careful with the seal placing.
Hope this review helped.
