Won't hold a seal for more than five minutes.
on May 16, 2014
This is the worst of Foodsaver's products I've tried so far. The sealers, bags & larger round containers have all worked very well for me in the past. I've been a Foodsaver user for close to 10 years now. I bought these containers to use for keeping deli meat fresh. I put the open package of deli meat into the container and sucked out the air as directed. I checked the seal on the container and it seemed solid. The next day I went to use the deli meat and when I went to release the seal I didn't hear the normal noise of the seal releasing. At first I thought there was some other background noise drowning it out. So I resealed the container and stuck it bake in the refrigerator. I waited about 5 minutes and checked it again. The lid just came right off as if it had never been sealed. I repeated this process 3 or 4 times with both containers and got the same result. I wish I had spent a little more money and got the larger containers that have the push button release. These containers have a thin flap of rubber that you pull up to release. All in all, they're not very good. You can see some pictures of the relief valve that I posted in the customer images section.
