Only lasted a for about 5 uses
I only used it about 5 different times before it failed to vacuum and seal. It will vacuum air out but won't trigger the sealer. I tried replacing the seals but no luck.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I love the size of the machine.
from Grealdine, AL
Great value for a great machine. I have 3 other Food Savers and I wasn't able to keep them out for easy use due to the size. When I saw this one I not only bought one for myself but also bought one for my mom. We both give 5 stars. I am now ordering one for a wedding gift.
Well worth having....
I've has this food-saver quite awhile and it has served me fine. I only wanted to get an upgrade this time because I love saving money by not throwing away so much food. And I just felt like getting s new one for my hubby because he's the one who mostly wraps everything for me. So Santa decided to order a stand-up model for him this year. And a few extras too !! I expanded our ownership of food-saver products this year. I'm a happy gal. And he's a happy guy !!!
Easy to use
from Gastonia NC
This FoodSaver is great and so easy to use! fast and efficient with a good seal. no issues at all and the removable drip tray is handy for easy cleaning. Very convenient for bulk purchases that I want to package into smaller serving sized and look forward to using it for produce from the garden.
FS should reevaluate this particular machine
from Lufkin, TX
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.
from West Virginia
Excellent product. I'm already saving money and time. Just ordered the jar sealer also to help with canning season.
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.
