    Vacuum Food Sealer Reccomendations?

    Hello, all. I have been thinking about purchasing a vacuum food sealer in order to facilitate some long term storage. Unfortunately, I did not realize how many different brands, models, and price ranges there are. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions? (hey, keep it clean )

    I don't mind paying a little extra for quality, but I also don't want to waste my money. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a FoodSaver Professional II. I've had it for 8 years or so and used it to pack lots of meat, veggies, clothes/blankets for emergency kits, etc. It has a slicer for when you use the rolls instead of the bags. The bags/rolls are readily available--Walmart has them in a "value" pack--5 rolls for $40. I think I paid about $150 for the sealer when I got it, don't know if they even make this model any more, but I know FoodSaver is still making packers. There may be better brands out there--this is the only one I've ever used, but it has held up pretty well. Hope that helps some.

    Thumbs up Handi-vac

    I couldn't bring myself to spend the money on one of those nice vacuum sealers so I picked up a Reynolds Handi-vac. It is a little battery powered pump that you use with special "zip-loc" bags that have a valve.

    They are really cheap. I have probably packed about 50-75lbs of venison with mine. Reynolds® Handi-Vac? Vacuum Sealer - Vacuum Sealing System Starter Kit with Handy Vac Freezer Bags and Batteries: Kitchen & Dining
