FS should reevaluate this particular machine

Comments about FoodSaver® Starter Chef Deluxe Kit - Black:
Yes, I've read the manual, even numerous reviews. Had to replace the seal gaskets. It still won't vacuum properly UNLESS I place my hand on the middle of the top and apply slight pressure. Heat seals can be "hit and miss" at times, so I have to really look at them. The jar sealer is tricky and I've had success with that(haven't used it much) but I can say that it takes practice. For making your initial heat seams, DO let the machine cool down in between cycles and make sure to have the printed side of the bag is facing UP. Frustrating, I know. To be honest, I would recommend a higher quality machine. I've owned mine for 3 yrs now.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Excellent product. I'm already saving money and time. Just ordered the jar sealer also to help with canning season.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Perfect size and great uses!
from Woodinville, WA
I love the smaller size of this model and keep it on my counter all the time.
Easy to use, space saving size
from St Paul Mn
I used this with strawberries I had individually quick frozen. The "stop" feature was helpful so I could stop the process before the berries were crushed. The machine was very easy to learn to use. This was my first use of the machine.
Lasted about 3 uses then stopped vacuuming
from Dallas TX
We had good success with the prior model, which lasted a few years before needing to be replaced. I purchased the V2244 for my wife as a present and it worked great the first few times she used it, however after that, it would seal, but will no longer vacuum. Disappointed.
Snacks in jars are good!
I am very happy with this vacuum sealer. I use it mostly for sealing jars and resealing snack bags. It is easy to use and takes up very little space on the counter. I had originally ordered a model that was completely automatic but after a helpful phone call with Food Saver customer service, I was able to actually receive the model I really wanted. Overall, a great online shopping experience.
THIS PRODUCT IS GREAT

from northern california
Too new to rate but so far does what it says. I don't understand why the heat seal feature kicks in when using the attachments to seal containers....huh?
great for first time users
Love this product. Bought it to help me save room in my freezer since I only have a standard apartment size freezer and I buy meat to last up to 2 months at a time. Also, to help keep my meat from getting so freezer burnt. Very simple to use.
The food saver is just what I have been looking for. Great way to store meats bought in larger quantities. Looking forward to preserving vegetables from the garden this year also. Love the convenience of making your own storage bags to fit your need.
