Default Bought a Food Saver!

Wow how exciting is this.....I bought a Food Saver this weekend, you know that machine where you vaccum pack things. I have been having a ball sealing up meat and corn to freeze. Does anyone else have one of these gadgets?

I had one a few years ago. I used to buy my meat in bulk and freeze it. It worked wonders until I wore it out. My current wife doesn't see the value in it mainly because we don't buy in bulk now, but it sure worked well when I had it before.

I have one, but I just can't seem to make it work. It is now an official dust collector. Maybe I'll give it another try.

I have one also. This is the first year I have used it for freezing things from out garden. I froze corn with a pat of butter on each ear and vacuum sealed them. I can't wait until this winter to give them a try. I also froze green peppers, butter beans. I really enjoyed using it.

I've had mine for over a year and when this one wears out, I'll get another! I wouldn't be without it. Just the 2 of us but I can still get the good buys and separate them out into meal size portions. It works wonders on meat - will keep forever with no freezer burn. Also good for cheese. I just love mine!

I love mine. It is great esp. for meats, look just like they were just cut.

i have had mine for over 6 years, even the hubby loves it, i use the canisters, too. great for fresh fish that we catch. have a small family, freeze leftovers, buy bulk, freeze it. would replace it in a heartbeat if i had to.
