Forgot to mention...sealers are also good for keeping dry goods fresh. For example, a bag of Leggs sausage seasoning will last me 2-3 years. So when I'm through making sausage, I vacuum seal the leftover dry seasoning. It's probably not as good as a fresh bag, but I can't tell it.

Yep. Keeps socks and such dry if you're camping or kayaking, too.

We have a FoodSaver. It’s a black one. Holds the roll and has the sliding cutter tool. It also has the vacuum hose for the viplock style bags. The viplock style bags are very convenient for us. Just open em up grab what you want close the zipper and suck the air out

We've had a food saver for years. Use it several times a week. We also reuse the bags like NDHb.

We have a FoodSaver, used it today. Bought meats at Costco in amount to get a good price. Divided it up into meal size quantities in vacum bags to freeze.

Get a chamber sealer. Some have had good luck with the foodsavers and my hats off to them. I made a drunk purchase of a Vacmaster 220 back in October and that has been the best thing I’ve bought in many years. The guide I have been fishing with in Louisiana for years vacuums all of his clients catch and told me he goes thru about 30,000 bags a year and has never had an issue with the same model I bought. The bags are cheap and can be gotten in various thickness off of Amazon. Mine gets used almost daily by me or friends and the best part is most of the friends and neighbors that use it usually leave a couple packs of whatever they are packing. A grand got it to my door with a few hundred bags also.

I use mine for fish and vegetables from the garden. As mentioned, anything you need to keep dry. I keep a spare set of trailer bearings pre-packed with grease vacuum sealed in the toolbox on my truck. Also have the tools ( bearing, seal driver etc.) to at least get me home or to a shop in the event of bearing failure.

To each their own, but I don't run a business, I don't go through 30,000 bags a year, and I can't afford to pay $1,000 for a vac-sealer. That would be stupid in my situation. I don't fly a private jet to work every day, either.

I don’t run a business either nor fly a jet to work but I do put up a lot of fish, game and a lot from the garden and the Foodsaver won’t cut it. But if you will pm me your address or a PO Box I will send you my Foodsaver that is only a couple years old and whatever bags I have left to help. On my dime.

NCH doesn’t need it but the OP might.

A friend has one with Cabelas brand on it, we put up some venison with it and it’s nicer than my food saver brand from Wally World. My food saver brand works well, the rolls of bags are a bit expensive but the unit works as advertised.

In over 20 years, I'm on my second FoodSaver that I use weekly at the house. I've also bought and left one at the fishing camp in Alaska and there is one in my trailer at hunting camp. For the money, they are a great value. And as NCHillbilly stated, if it breaks down, I'll have another before the day is over.

I'm good with the one I've got. Got two freezers full of fish, game, meat, and garden stuff I've put up with it.

I thought about getting some brand of vaccum sealer for garden, meat etc. But after I looked a little it seemed like there is high cost of doing so. Like a dollar per bag. Am I missing something?
Order the bags from Amazon. Around $21

I’ll 2nd that on the chamber sealer. I’ve worn a few food savers out. I still have one for small uses - order the bags from Amazon.
