FoodSaver Wide-Mouth Jar Sealer
Creates an Air-Tight Seal
Don't just close those Mason-type jars, make them air-tight with help from this wide-mouth jar sealer from the experts at the FoodSaver brand. The handy one-piece attachment fits on pint- and quart-size, wide-mouth, Ball and Kerr Mason jars to create an effective vacuum seal that locks out air, sealing freshness in. Re-seal those handy food-storage jars again and again, using a standard Mason jar lid and the FoodSaver jar sealer.
Easy to Use
The jar sealer works with any FoodSaver vacuum sealing system (machine not included). Simply connect one end of the jar sealer to the machine's accessory port and the white, round-shaped end to the top of a lidded Mason jar, so that it fits securely over the screwed-on lid. With the push of a button, the system quickly extracts all the air from inside the jar, pulling it out through the flexible tubing to form an air-tight seal.
Ideal for Liquid and Dry Storage Alike
Though not to be used as a replacement for traditional canning methods, the FoodSaver wide-mouth jar sealer works well for safely storing strawberry and blackberry jams, chocolate sauces, hot mustards, and other liquids and fragile foods. It's equally effective for storing dry foods like brown sugar, aromatic spices, dried fruit, and baking flour.
Keeps Food Fresh up to 5x Longer -- Save up to $2700 a Year
The FoodSaver jar sealer keeps food fresh up to five times longer when compared to other storage methods (like zipper bags, foil, plastic wrap and plastic containers). The FoodSaver system can also help you save up to $2700 a year by buying food in bulk, purchasing on-sale food items, and not having to worry about freezer burn or wasted food.
BPA-Free and Dishwasher-Safe Design
The jar sealer ensures convenient, reliable performance from one use to the next. Made with BPA-free plastic, the wide-mouth jar sealer is odor-proof, stain-resistant, and easy to clean by hand or in the dishwasher.

For those who cook large quantities of food, FoodSaver vacuum packaging systems offer excellent protection against food spoilage and freezer burn. This jar sealer attachment fits on wide-mouth mason jars and is for use with any FoodSaver machine that has an accessory port. The top forms a tight seal on mason jars while the tubing removes air from the jar with the help of a FoodSaver machine. The jar sealer works equally as well in packaging liquid foods, such as jams or chocolate sauces, as it does for dry goods, such as brown sugar or spices. While vacuum packaging is not a substitute for traditional canning methods, it does keep food fresh three to five times longer than keeping it in a plastic food storage container in the refrigerator. Plastic air tube not included. --Cristina Vaamonde

Just so there's no misunderstanding, this product is removed after the jar is sealed, and the lid stays put - just screw on the jar ring and put away whatever is in the jar. At first it was a little unclear whether we had to get one of these attachments for each jar, but that's not the case.
Now we can use relatively inexpensive (and durable) ½ gallon canning jars (as well as the smaller sizes) for various food items, take out what we need for use, and immediately vacuum-seal the jar again with the remaining contents. A case of six 2 quart jars was just over $8.00, so for about $25 (plus the one-time cost of the jar sealer attachment of course) we have 9 gallons of storage capacity to use over and over, without concern for cracking like the FoodSaver plastic canisters apparently do too often. And replacing the sealing lids when they finally need replacing is a minimal expense. This also sure beats the cost of the plastic sealing bags that generally can only be used one or two times, when we can use these jars over and over instead of the bags. There is a place for the plastic bags, but we're finding so far that a whole lot that we initially started putting in the bags can just as easily (if not easier) go in the jars. Additionally, the jars keep powdered or liquid products from going into the vacuum sealer much more easily than the bags laying flat at the mouth of the sealer.
All around, these easy to use and very inexpensive for ongoing use, with almost nothing to replace or crack, and easy to store.
One tip: read the instructions carefully. DO NOT open the FoodSaver lid first when it's finished, or it will repressurize the jar. Follow the instructions and remove one end of the plastic tube first - there will be just a little puff of air as air re-enters the system, but it doesn't go into the jar and destroy the vacuum in the jar. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
The only mild inconvenience is that after you seal up a jar, if you just leave the FoodSaver on and the hose attached, eventually the red light starts blinking (some kind of error?) and you have to unplug it. It would be even better if you could just leave it plugged in, and seal up a jar with the press of a button! But needing to unplug it and plug it back in is a very minor annoyance.
Its a great idea and a must have in my kitchen.
First let me say that the jar sealer works exactly as it's supposed to. You pop it over the flat lid on the jar, run the Foodsaver, and it vacuum seals the jar. Voila! There's not much else to be said on the functionality front.
From a practical point of view: I wound up using it less for the salad-in-a-jar concept (which i found disappointing) but I've found i use it all the time for storage in the pantry. I put rice, dry beans, cornmeal, and other dry goods that i don't use every day in large Mason jars and vacuum seal them. It takes less than a minute to reseal the jars each time I open one and it keeps them fresh and bug-free in the pantry.
I also use this store soup, chili, or casserole leftovers for lunches during the week. I've found that I can make a large batch of veggie or butternut soup or chili, or take leftovers from a casserole type dish, divide it into quart jars and seal it, and it stays fresh for 7-10 days in the fridge. That means in the mornings I can grab a jar to take to work with me - pop the lid off, nuke the jar in the microwave, and I have a healthy, fresh, homemade lunch. Plus the jars don't stain like Tupperware or other plastic/rubber containers do when you store tomato base.
This is a long rambling review to say that I ordered this item purely as an experiment, figuring it wasn't a lot of money to lose if I wound up not liking the salad-in-a-jar thing. But I found myself using it for many many other things and now it's become something that I keep in the top drawer in the cabinet because I use it multiple times a week.
