For years I have craved a FOODSAVER or SEAL-A-MEAL or other vacuum sealing products but I just couldn't swallow the expense of the large units available. I liked the variety of uses and containers available but I really just needed a unit to every once in a while seal gallon and quart size bags.

For years I used ZIPLOC's hand pump vacuum bags (Bags = difficult to find, expensive and the seals didn't last) and Reynold's hand held motorized vacuum system (Too much trial and error to get the pump positioned to start vacuuming...and the line was ultimately discontinued).

Recently purchased the Handheld FoodSaver model as a present for Xmas and contemplated getting one for myself when lo & behold......WOOT offered the RIVAL Vacuum Sealer for 1/2 the price.

I figured....what the hell?? If it sucks I can return it or I am out only a couple bucks.

Be advised....The Unit is not the smallest thing & does not have a long power cord and lays horizontally so don't expect to be far from an outlet or get a short extension cord. If you are using on a countertop in front of other appliance (i.e. coffee maker) expect to be a little cramped.

I started with the sample quart bags + Gourmet deli cold cuts bought = break up into 2 1-lb portions.
NOTE: This unit is NOT quiet. You push down....wait for Hands-Free light & Sealing light to go on....let go....wait for lights to turn off. Hit Open/Cancel button....VOILA! in ~10-15 sec Vacuum sealed food. So far....so impressed.

This unit is compatible with SEAL-A-MEAL & FOODSAVER bags and rolls...so ran off to the local warehouse club which have a package of rolls & bags for the lowest price.

NOTE: This unit does not offer a bag cutter like the more expensive units.....

This is a great no frills product. At 1/3 the cost of the "fancy brand name" sealer this unit does just what it is supposed to do..remove air and seal the bag. Sure there are units out there that have more bells and whistle but what do you expect for $50?? and on the gold box deal it's even better!!!

OK, so you can't manually stop the suction to seal soft foods and there is no hose to do canisters but again, for the price it does what it is supposed to. One thing it has and the fancy ones don't is the removable tray for liquids. After doing some chicken it's good to have the piece come out to get properly washed!

It makes noise yes.. it's a machine! I bet those complaining about how loud it is also complain about the sound of the ice from falling from the ice maker..

If you want a vacuum sealer and don't want to spend $100+ this one does the job perfectly (and uses the foodsaver bags too, just put the textured side up).

My wife and I decided to make an emergency 30 day food supply and I bought this to seal up foods mostly for that purpose. After a trip to the grocery store to buy our first round of stuff, I was lined up and ready to start sealing everything. When it works, it really does a great job. For dried beans, I poked a hole in the existing bag so the sealer could get the air out of the inner bag as well. The result was a package of dried beans hard as a a brick - good thing.

I did mention 'when it works'. After a couple of bags were done, I started having an issue in which the unit did not suck out the air and went on to seal the bag. I quickly aborted the process to save the bag and retried over and over with no success. After messing with the unit for a while, I finally realized that I had to reseat the gasket/seals (as others mentioned in these reviews). After doing so, it started working property again. That said, I am a bit disappointed as I have to mash down and massage the seals about every fourth or fifth usage.

Next, as someone else mentioned, you do have to press fairly hard on it to activate it. The unit has a 'hands free' indicator on it which simply means it has acquired enough suction that you no longer have to press down on the unit and it will continue on its own. This is fine for many items, but when I poured a box of dry rice into a bag and started to seal it, my arms started to get tired really quick as it seemed to take much longer until the 'hands free' kicked in. Makes sense that it would take longer given that it was loose rice in a bag. Still, when you're doing many items at once, your arms get a bit of a workout.

I bought the combo box of bags (4 - 11', 1 - 8", 30 quart bags), which seemed to be a good starting place.

I have owned another brand by foodsaver. It was loud. It took about a minute to seal. You need to line up the suction just right to remove the air. Unless you were blind you could tell when it was done. Rival's product does what it is supposed to do. Concerning the sound it is like complaining about a vacuum or air compressor for being loud. You don't like the noise don't use it. It works.

I received my Rival Vacuum Sealer from Amazon on 9/28/11. On 9/29/11 I stocked up on a few hundred dollars worth of beef at reasonable price, since I had been warned by an agricultural business news adviser (Orien Samuelson) about the price of beef skyrocketing this year into next year. That has already happened at most retail stores. I used my new Rival Vacuum Sealer to seal every single piece of meat I bought and it worked quite well. No problem whatsoever.

Actually, I was amazed that the little Rival worked so well on such a large quantity of meat. I guess everyone has their own opinion or story to tell, but I have been quite pleased, indeed. I think people should consider these reviews as a general indicator, but do their own research. I have found many products rated less than satisfactory here only because people did not use them correctly. You MUST read instructions if you would like to achieve satisfactory results.

Just my two cents.
