FoodSaver V3240 Vacuum Sealing System with Starter Kit
Saves you money and helps eliminate food waste
The FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System keeps food fresh up to 5x longer than ordinary storage methods and prevents freezer burn, allowing you to save based on buying in bulk, on sale, and preventing waste. 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 leftovers in the fridge, to deep-freeze cuts of meat, and much more.
Speed & Food Type Settings
Adjusts vacuum speed based on food type. Moist/Dry Food Settings adjusts seal level based on dry or moist food.
Convenient Roll Storage
The FoodSaver roll conveniently stores inside the machine, decreasing clutter.
The extra-wide sealing strip applies heat for a secure, airtight seal that locks in the freshness and flavor of food.
How to Use Your FoodSaver System for Sous Vide Cooking
Effectively Prepares Food
Sous vide allows you to precisely control your cooking temperature to achieve perfect results. You can cook sous vide in FoodSaver bags by placing them in water at any temperature up to 195°F/90°C.
Keeps Ingredients Secure
By using your FoodSaver vacuum sealing system, water can't permeate through the bag and mess with your ingredients, so your food stays secure during its water bath.
Prevents Contents From Floating
FoodSaver bags and vacuum sealers are ideal for sous vide cooking because they remove all the air around the food, effectively ensuring that the bags will float less than ordinary zipper bags.

P.S. don't bother with the pre made bag, get the roll and make them yourself, FAR more economical.
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.
This machine is STILL going strong, after 6 years. I haven't had to replace anything on it (gaskets, etc.). I didn't know when I bought this that it would eventually become the kitchen appliance that I use more frequently than any other. Aside from my chef's knives (I love to cook), this thing sees more action than any other item in my kitchen.
Buy in bulk---break it down and freeze it. Cook in bulk---bag it up and freeze it. Make sauces and freeze them in ice cube trays. Remove the cubes the next day, vacuum seal them and freeze. I grow my own herbs and every summer I make a ton of pesto. Freeze it in the ice cube trays, then freeze the cubes in the vacuum sealer and you have pesto year-round. (Drop a cube or two into your tomato soup or sauces. Amazing!)
I pull flours, bread crumbs, cornmeal, couscous, sugar, quinoa, oats, rice and other grains and dry goods out of the original packaging when I get them home and vacuum seal them and toss them in the pantry. This not only preserves and protects the food longer, it creates a lot of space in your pantry and your freezer since everything lies flat.
I make two weeks worth of scrambled eggs, sausage and gravy for my husband's breakfasts. I break the whole batch down into individual servings, vacuum seal them and freeze them. He nukes them in the morning for about a minute and he has a great alternative to those "freezer breakfasts" that you can buy in the store. It's cheaper, takes up a fraction of the space in your freezer, and I know and can pronounce every ingredient.
Folks have asked about freezing liquids. Yes, you can. Just cut an extra-long bag, and keep your finger poised over the "seal" button after you hit "vacuum and seal." Then, hit the seal button when the machine starts to pull up liquid, but after it's removed the air. I requires focus and timing, but it certainly can be done. I do it all the time with leftover soups and sauces.
Buy citrus in bulk, juice them all and freeze the juice in ice cube trays. When they're frozen, pop them out and vacuum seal and freeze the cubes in a long bag (so you can open and re-seal multiple times). When you need a tablespoon of lemon juice for a recipe, just toss in one of the cubes. I also vacuum seal several bags of 1-cup portions of lemon juice. When we want some lemonade, I just toss the 1 cup of frozen juice along with 1 cup of sugar into a half-gallon pitcher, and fill with water and stir. Done. No preservatives or additives and much cheaper (and more delicious) than store-bought frozen juices.
Use it to save time when cooking. Prep chicken or other meats, place them in a vacuum bag, pour over your marinade and then freeze. When you're ready to use it, you can allow it to defrost in the 'fridge and it will marinate as it thaws. These days, I often make three or four meals of things like thai chicken, bibimbap, or other marinated meats and freeze the extras in one-meal portions. You can also keep the meat separate from the sauce or marinade, freeze both components in separate bags, staple the bags together (along the edges, on the outside of the seal, of course) with a 3x5 card on which you've written the cooking instructions, and dinner is almost as easy as a TV dinner, and much better for you and cheaper! Not to mention that this will take up less space in your freezer than those prepackaged frozen meals.
We don't eat a lot of bread, but you can't buy just a few slices, so I break bread items into smaller servings and vacuum seal them. This is another time when, even though you will want to use the "gentle" cycle, you should still keep your finger poised and ready to hit "seal" just before the vacuum action starts to crush the food. A better method, and the one I usually use, is to just freeze the baked goods in their original packaging overnight. Then, in the morning, pull the frozen items out, break them into the serving sizes that work for you and vacuum and freeze. They're already frozen, so danger of crushing is minimized. This works for cookies, bagels, etc., too.
Buy fresh berries (except strawberries---those don't freeze well) like blackberries and blueberries when they are on sale and freeze them either in their package or in a single layer on a sheet pan overnight. In the morning, gather them up and vacuum seal and freeze and you'll have fresh berries all year 'round. I usually keep a big supply on hand to toss into lemonade (they can act as "ice" and also flavor the lemonade) or for blueberry pancakes, muffins, smoothies (they make great "ice slush"), fruit cobblers, etc. Much cheaper than just buying frozen fruit AND you don't have to worry about freezer burn or ice crystals. Again, saves a ton space, too.
My guilty pleasure is frozen taquitos. It's cheaper to buy the larger size, but the box takes up a lot of room in your freezer! I take them out of the box, cut out the cooking instruction panel and then toss the instructions in the vacuum bag with the taquitos and freeze it up. Use a longer bag than you need so that you can cut an reseal as many times as needed. Packaging in this way will take up about 20% of the space that the store packaging does.
I love this machine. I use it many times a week and frequently multiple times a day. It has saved me a ton of money over the years, saves a tremendous amount of space in both the pantry and the freezer, it has stood the test of time (and you can see that it gets frequent use and still has held up!), it's even been packed up and moved across country. This is one of those machines that I often wonder why I waited so long to get!
(One more hint: Don't buy the name-brand rolls of bag material. You can find the same quality rolls on Amazon, off-brand, for a fraction of the price of the "name-brand" rolls and the quality is every bit as good.)
If this machine ever does go belly-up, I will replace it immediately and without hesitation!
