I have one too... I love it... I use it everyday. I really do.
It's great for people that don't have much time on there hands for cooking . It makes my life so easy.
I prepare most of my meals on the weekend or at lest cut up all the veggie and bag them so they don't go bad. My husband is a vegetarian so this helps keep the food fresh longer three days.


I think I got the 1060, it was at costco... it cheaper there and you get the three containers. We just got one for our mother in law because she is always out and has to rush home to cook dinner. This way she can prepare dinner weeks head of time and then the family only has to take the food out and place in microwave.

When our family comes over there is normally no meet to cook because I don't really buy it.. Because it would be bad by then. So now I can buy the meat chicken or stake and Cook up a real good meal and vacuum and seal it.. I put it in the freezer and it ready when I need it. Not to mention you don't have to season things for a whole day... you can season chicken in ten min.. And it taste so good. I bought two sets of containers one for fridge for left- over and fruits to keep fresh. The other set for rice and flour in the cupboard. It great...I love it. Oh my mother in law loves it too, now she can stay out as long as she wants


Eg. Went away to the cabin for the long weekend. I cooked chicken,macaronie pie, vegie lasauna. Then I let it cool and put them in the freezer to get hard . Then I vacumed them in bags. I packed a Salad in the lagre container. For breakfast ,I also cut up starberries and canlop and put them in a container and seled it. Then I made muffins and sealed those too. Oh I forgot i also made rice and sealed that too. Well we had enough food for days... When we microwaved to warm it up . It tase so good. My mother in law was so impressed she wated one too. We only ate out once just for the experience. On and nothing went bad.

If you plan on getting one get the package that has three containers you will save more money that way. also try to get the one that stores the bags inside the food saver. Sorry for the long post.

Oh my the way my husband uses it too...

We have it and its wonderful.  I'm not sure which one.  I have the one that seals bags and the one that stores food in the containers.  They both work great.

you can use one of the containers you have for sesoning meat . You don't have to by the seasoning container unless you cook a lot of meat for the family. I use the medium round container for seasoning .

Becarfull when ordering or getting them at the stores. Home outfitters is still selling the old models. I was very up set when i got it there first and was riped off in price as well.
Costco had it cheaper and gave you the caniters and jar lid thing.

Here is a link to that will show you all the disscontinued models.
discontinued models

I think the first one you listed is the best model... crush proff is really good. I would love to have that model... I think the 840 is last years mode,it is still good but you might as well get the newest one if you can afford it
regarless of what you get you will love your new toy

ps... this looks like a great deal:COSTCO
<div align="right">index.php?act=findpost&pid=85671
OH! That is a good deal. My boss has a Costco membership so she could get it for me. WAIT!!! You don't need a membership?!?!? I thought you had to have a membership to shop at CostCo? It says if you don't have you you get charge 5% more. That is only $5 more, not bad. I will definitly add that to my list.

Edit:I just did a Froogle search on that one and CostCo is the cheapest.

I'm sure you will use the canisters. Just like TikisMom said. I did not think I would use them... now I have two sets.. One for the frige and one for the cobord... I cut up my strawberrys for the week and put them in the canistre the keep fresh for max two weeks and still task great. They do not go bad. I also put my left overs in there some times and it keeps them fresh. I also use one to hold salad and it stays fresh for two weeks as well. Anyway the costco deal looks really good. Enjoy your new toy and don't forget to watch the video that comes with it.

Food saver has new containiers. They are really cool. You don't even have to have a food saver to use one.
It has a pump on top and all you do is pump it until the air is removed. I picked one up on Saturday. Mine is round. Here is a link for the internet.

Foodsaver.com

you can store left overs , fruit, veggies and more

I say the V840 and the V845 someplace last night.  I think Bed, Bath and Beyond sells the V845 for $99 but you only get 5 bags and one 11" X 10' roll.  I would get a lot more if I got it from the FoodSaver website but I would have to pay shipping.  Hmm.

I can't remember what store I saw the 840 at.

Right now I'm kind of leaning towards the V2480.  I know it doesn't come with all the canisters but I can buy those at Walmart for less then $20.

Now I am getting obsessed with getting a foodsaver. Definitely at the end of the year! Good luck with your purchase

The good thing about the new fresh container is you don't have to have a food saver there is a pump attached to it that you just press. In the link it show a picture with the white thing in the middel . THat is the pump when you finish pumping it you turn it and it sits flat in the container. Anyway you can use it merinate meat, keep your fuits longer ... strawberries will last two weeks in it. Also salad will last a lot longer and stay fresher. I put my left overs in it. Yesterday i made a macironie pie, chichen and Salmon stakes... now I dont have to cook for the week... yippy. I have to say the food saver is a really good buy.
but again if you can afford the food saver now. get the freshness containers they are way better then ziplock
