This has been a great way for me to save money on my breakfast and lunch. I commute to work in a high-cost area where I used to spend about $6 for breakfast and $8-$10 for lunch. I always had good intentions of packing my food before I leave the house but I get up at 4:00am and am out the door by 4:45. I just don't have time in the morning to fix food for the day and I don't like having to always take leftovers from the night before. Sometimes I want to eat something different. So - at first I started buying popular frozen food entrees but they have tons of artificial stuff and too much salt. Plus, even when on sale they are about $2 to $2.50 each and don't fill me up. Also, there aren't a lot of healthy frozen choices for breakfast. Sure, I could eat instant oatmeal (and I do sometimes) but even that gets old quickly.
Fortunately, with the Foodsaver 2461, I have been able to prepare enough breakfast and lunch entrees for several weeks at a time and freeze them with no problem. So now I just grab two meals in the morning when I head out and then throw them in the microwave at work when I'm ready to eat. For breakfast, I've made and frozen burritos (eggs, cheese, sausage, peppers, tortilla), spinach frittatas (spinach quiche without the crust) and sausage patties, omelettes, etc. and they have all reheated well with the Foodsaver and other vacuum sealer bags I've tried. As a result, I now only spend about $5 a day TOTAL for breakfast and lunch (as opposed to $14-$16 a day) and I have much healthier meals. I typically use all natural and organic ingredients with very little salt and sugar, so the Foodsaver allows me to eat better while at work than I was before.
The only issue I have, and this is minor, is that when operating the Foodsaver, you have to place the open top part of the bag in the middle of the vacuum sealer part of the appliance. If you place the bag so that it covers the entire opening for the vacuum part in the inside of the Foodsaver, then it can't suck out the air and you won't be able to complete a seal. I learned that after two tries. Once you figure that out, the Foodsaver 2461 is very easy and quick to use. It's a tad bit loud but you only have to use it for about 20 secs at a time so the noise isn't a big deal for me.
The Foodsaver 2461 is definitely work it.
It really makes everyday things you woukd normally just stick in a bag last so much longer and stay so much fresher! I always like to buy the bigger things of chicken breast from the counter even when i only need one or 2, then vac up the rest and throw them in the freezer.
Right after my wife gave birth a friend brought us over a huge costco thing of red vines and i sealed those things up in a bunch of different pouches so they stayed soft and fresh. done the same with a huge thing of peanuts, and other random stuff too.
Anyway, once we got down here we decided we couldnt live without a vacuum sealer, so we decided just to buy this one again since we knew it worked great! It doesnt have all the bells and whistles as some of the more expensive ones, but it really does a great job, and even comes with the tube attachment for some of the other sealing options.
One issue that we did have with this sealer, is that for a little while i was storing it with the latch locked, and noticed that when i did that it wasnt getting a good seal when packing things, and i had to apply some pressure to the lid to get it to do its thing. Once i stopped storing it like that i had no more issues, so as a tip, so not store it with the lid locked and you wont have any issues. i think it must compress down some of the foam and rubber tubing.
I think this unit is a great entry level unit with some extras, and it holds up well to a lot of use, i would recommend this unit over almost any other sealer.
