The FoodSaver Experience
The FoodSaver V3240 (V3200 Series) Vacuum Sealing System keeps food fresh up to five times longer than ordinary storage methods and prevents freezer burn. This system removes air and moisture from specially-designed, multi-layer bags while sealing in flavor so that your food tastes as if it was bought yesterday even after being in the freezer for months. Use it to freeze pre-made dinners that you can reheat during the week, to keep left over salad or pizza slices in the fridge for later, to deep-freeze cuts of meat, and much more.
Compact and Easy to Use
The V3240 will not only keep your food fresh longer, but will also save you money by not having to throw away freezer-burned meat, moldy produce, or forgotten leftovers. This user-friendly machine has an easy to understand control panel and saves countertop space with its convenient vertical design.

P.S. don't bother with the pre made bag, get the roll and make them yourself, FAR more economical.
Initially, this is all someone could ask for in a vacuum sealing unit. It has the ability to seal rolls and handle different types of food and liquids based upon an intuitive front button press. It has a nice area to put the roll for storage as well as a convenient cutter tool integrated into the lid to allow you to cut your bags to size. It was fairly hands off and vacuumed to the proper level when needed. All in all, for the first 3-6 months I owned this product I was extremely happy with it.
Unfortunately, this product has NOT stood the test of time. I ran into an issue after the machine had not been used for some time. The machine sat on a counter after we moved and vacuum sealing food was not a priority while we settled into our home. Once I tried to use the machine again, I started getting bad vacuums, incomplete vacuums and even situations where it wasn't even pulling any vacuum. I replaced the o-ring glands and tried again and it still was not really fixing the issue.
I do like taking things apart, so I brought it down to the workshop and took the entire unit apart looking at the various components to see if there were any issues. The pump appeared to be working properly and eventually was able to diagnose it to the fact that the "automated" clamping was not putting sufficient force down onto the bag/seals in order to allow the bags to be vacuumed properly.
So I've come up with a solution, which should not be the case for any $120 dollar machine, I've removed the top of the unit and when I vacuum anything I reach inside and apply additional pressure to the top of the closed unit in order to allow the bags to be properly vacuumed. This consistently has seemed to work but any device that needs to be troubleshot and have me take apart half of the unit in order to reduce the gap between actuated components gets a 1 star review from me.
1. Works great in the beginning
2. Allows vacuuming of solids and liquids
3. Multiple intuitive settings.
1. Functionality of the device stopped after about 6 months of use.
2. Had to remove the cover and need to manually press down onto the actuating portion of the unit in order for it to properly seal bags and take them to vacuum.
the rolls are pretty much no brainer and some snack items or spices, i dont even need to use the food saver bag, i just reseal it in the packaging it comes in. i find it handy and hassle free. Best addition yet for my kitchen. Dont have to worry about containers and throwing out stuff after a certain date, definitely a must have,
it also have the pump to tighten and seal mason jars for ur veg and juices. It has a drip pan inside so when you vacuum and seal anything wet or meat or with moisture, the drip pan collects the excess water. just take it out, wash it n put it back in.
Easy to maintain. Coming from someone whos been reading up each and every other reviews and trying one after another vac sealer, this one is definitely the best ive had.
I also hated the storage unit on top for the roll of bags, it only fits food saver brand bags. The off-brand roll I bought was too fat.
