I have always wanted to try a FoodSaver vacuum sealer, so finally I got brave and just asked them if I could review one and of course give one away to you guys.  My unit arrived this week and we tore into it and then searched the house for things to seal.  I kind of felt like a 5 year old playing with a new toy, but it’s just plain fun to see it suck everything down and completely seal it.

What is a FoodSaver?  A FoodSaver is a vacuum sealing system that takes all of the air out of a bag of food, but it locks in the flavor.  Foods stay fresh for up to 5 times longer and won’t get freezer burn for years since they don’t come in contact with cold, dry air.  I’m really tired of buying meat in bulk but then after a month or two not being able to tell what type of meat it is thanks to freezer burn being all over it.

For me if I can buy in bulk and not fight freezer burn that’s a massive amount of money saved!  I’m not throwing away a ton of food that has gone bad because we haven’t had time to eat it.   We love to buy produce in season and store it for the winter so this is a huge help!!  I know for some of you the thought of paying for a unit when normal zipper bags are less than $1 on sale is hard, but for us the amount that we freeze this really is awesome to have no freezer burn.  In the end counting in the value of the food it makes sense to me to pay a little more to store the food if I now can store the food 10 times longer!

I must admit, it took me once or twice to get the hang of the machine, but once I effectively vacuum sealed my first thing we were off vacuum sealing half the freezer getting rid of the traditional freezer bags.

One other thing I hope to play with this week, is prepping meats before freezing with seasonings and marinades, then sealing them and having dinner already marinated and ready to go!

      I believe I could save at least $400 a year by using the Food Saver.  I end up throwing away frost-bitten vegetables, and meat that I’m not sure is good or bad.  This would save a ton of money from food waste, and from countless zipper freezer bags!!

    • I have no idea how much money I’d save, but I’m willing to do an “experiment” to find out!  :-)
      If I have to guess, I’d say anywhere from $300-400!

    • I can’t tell you how much food I’ve tried to freeze and ended up throwing away because it was all iced on top! I would love to get one of these to start buying more in bulk and split packages

      Exciting giveaway! I honestly have no idea how much I would save with a FoodSaver — we are just about to buy a spare freezer this week and this would be an awesome partner for it. But I think the combination of a chest freezer and a food saver means that I could save at least 50% more on my meat purchases, and probably close to as much on produce (not to mention how yummy it is when it’s seasonal!)

    • Klint and Evelin Waters

      we had 2 food saver but i think we wore ’em out, during deer season we  processed so much meat to put in freezer with them and then through out the year we always bought in bulk and put in freezer i9n smaller portions, They came in so handy but now we can’t afford one with everything being so expensive , we can’t even buy in bulk

      I can’t BEGIN to imagine the amount of money I would save.  Not only is my food wasted when it gets freezer burn, but I dump LOTS of money into bags for the hand pumped typr vacuum system (that shall remain unnamed!)  :)  I’ve been considering one of these for some time, while the food burns away.  I would love to have one!  Pick me!  :)

    • My Mom has one and it saves her a fortune because she puts everything from the garden in the bags, sucks the air, then into the freezer.  It is amazing the things she has pulled out a year later and they taste like you just picked them.  It is a great machine and I would LOVE to have one.  I think you could easily save $1,000/year.

    • I don’t know how much we would save, we don’t buy much meat but I would love one! I would probably buy more meat to store and save if I had one!

      I save probably 500 per year. My husband hunts alot so putting up meat, fish and other thing would save us alot. We alway went and used other peoples. They also great for cheese makes it last longer.

    • We have owned a Food Saver for ten years and literally ‘wore it out’; with the economy the way it is, can’t purchase another one. So, here goes, maybe we’ll win this one.

    • I think I could easily save about $800 a year. It would be great for sealing and saving all of the food that I end up throwing away.

      I know I could save several hundred dollars –  bought one for my son-in-law and he LOVES it for freezing deer and fish.  We enjoy fresh deer and fish when we visit all year long!  I NEED ONE FOR ME!!

    • I have never had a FoodSaver but I bet I could save at least $200 a year if I used this product. Maybe I will get to find out.

    • I am guessing I would save around $400 or so. I am afraid to purchase meals too far in advance because I end up throwing most out. I am paranoid about bad food but this would not only save me from buying ziploc bags but save me from many trips to the grocery store! I hate shopping so getting more food in one trip and not worrying about it going bad would really make momma happy :)

      I think I would save hundreds !!!! I would use it probally daily :)  It could also be handy for “non-freezer” items as well !!!!!

    • I think we would save 500 dollar a year. I love buying meat in bulk but sometimes pass up a deal for fear we won’t get to eat it before it freezer burns. This would also work great with the freeze my grandma gave us a couple of month ago

      Oh my goodness!  With the cost of everything nowadays I would probably have to estimate that it would save between $350-$500.  I’ve looked at items like this before and with all the accessories and container options I would never be throwing food out – we could keep all sorts of things fresh for months!! 

    • We had one and I know we saved hundreds a year. I loved it because I could also vacuum seal sugar and flour when I found it on sale and not worry about weevils getting into the flour. I would love to win this one and track our savings..

    • I ‘like’ them on Facebook!!!

    • I think I could say a lot of money simply because I cook for one!  Especially in gas to go to the grocery store!  This could help a lot, probably to the tune of $300 a year.  My mom always used it at home and I tried to take it when I moved….but she noticed!

    • Already “like” them and have the older model :) I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this newer version!!! We save a TON already but I know with this newer model we could save at least $100.00 a yr on the bags alone. With the one I have you still use up more than you actually need due needing enough to put in the vacuum chamber, but with this one I feel like that is eliminated thus saving even more!

      Foodsaver is AWESOME!!!  I’ve had one for years!  My husband and I were apart for more than a year living in other states.  I would prepare meals for him in seal them in the bags.  All he had to do was microwave them and he had home cooked meals!!  I make spaghetti sauce  in a huge pot and then seal it in the bags.  I don’t have to make it for at least 5 months!!  We love it.  We even package the dry dog food into packages so the contents fit in our counter top container.  Bags are a bit pricey but Foodsaver has some good deals sometimes and Costco sells a large box at a good price.  Well worth it!!! Between gas and food, I bet we can save over $1000 a year. Would love to have this newer model!

    • I’m sure this would save me a few hundred a year. I would’t toss as much freezer burned food,a nd I stock up more when the price is right.

    • i would imagine a savings of at least $1000 in a year, considering the ability to freeze premade meals, meats, etc….instead of throwing out those freezer burnt items! i would also split of large meals and use the system to freeze half of it for another day (knowing that all the leftovers wont get eaten and just thrown out)

    • I love my little foodsaver.  It saves lots of money already, I freeze individual portions of leftovers for my husband to grab and take for his lunches…savings of at least $20 a week already.  Being able to freeze larger items for our family of six would at least double that!!

      Saving a few hundred dollars a years would be great but the biggest benefit of owning a vacuum sealer would be how much time it would save me. I would be able to vacuum precooked meats, soups, desserts, herbs, seasonings, and so much more.
      I like to cook ahead of time but end up having to eat the same thing all week. With a vacuum sealer I could cook several meals, freeze them, and eat something different every night.

    • I love love love my foodsaver! Unfortunately it is on its last leg. I have plum worn it out. I use it for everything! I always buy our meat in bulk. I am pretty sure we have saved well over $1000 on just meat. I was blown away by that number when I did the math too! But I usually buy 10lb – 20lbs of chicken when it is on sale, which around here is about every other week. I also use it for freezing vegetables from our garden and even marinating meat! And resealing bags, it helps keep lettuce from turning so fast and chips from getting stale.

    • I could save 600. to 800. a year because I would be able to buy bulk.  I also liked them on facebook :)

      I think I could save $100 a month by buying meats on sale in bulk as well as produce for my 2 grown sons and 2 daughters.

    • I think I could save at least $800 a year with FoodSaver.  I throw out so much food because of freezer burn.

      I send food to Costa Rica and this would just help preserve the food while it takes a month long in transit and the battering the regular bags take just wont hold as well as I imagine these air tight sealed ones can take. Though I will defo try this for my household as well if I got one :)

      Prob about $500.00. I throw so much food away due to freezer burn. I would LOVE this.

      Since I live alone, I could save quite a bit of money. I like to buy in bulk for saving but many times my items have freezer burn on them by the time I get a chance to cook them (chicken is the worst!). I have about 3 different “food savers” gadgets but when I go back to buy bags at the store, the bags are usually discontinued.  FoodSaver has been around for a long time and I know I wouldn’t have problems finding replacment bags for it.  My parents have had one for many years and just won’t give it up to me!!!

      We could easily save $500+/year with one of these! Would love to have one :)

    • Donna Ballard

      We have a ton of leftovers – a lot of which gets thrown out.  I could probably save about $720 per year + save on prep time for future meals!

    • I KNOW you can save money with FoodSaver.  I have had one for years!  It includes the canisters.  I seal EVERYTHING!  We have a garden and it keeps food protected and fresh.  It saves on space in your freezer too!  I divide large packages of meat into smaller sizes.  I seal up bulk yeast, coconut,chocolate chips, nuts, brown sugar, most any item used for baking.    You can seal berries if you flash freeze them first.   Pre-pat burgers, freeze them.  They thaw so quick.  No need to wait on the whole store size package to thaw to make burgers.  So helpful on busy evenings!

      I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to have a new one.  Mine has just about given out.  I think the seal is finally wearing out from use.  The new model also has a space saving design that makes it more counter friendly.  If I could keep it out ALL the time no telling what ways I could find to use it!  Everything would be vacuum seal fresh!

      Hmm…I’m not sure. We already do some freezer meals that we label, but we still throw out lots of “unknowns.” I imagine we could save $300 or more.

      With high food prices, a $1000 a year would be an easy call.

    • I can’t even imagine how much I would save each month let alone a year! Hundreds of dollars possible more cause I stopped buying the bigger (cheaper) packs of meats & buying more of the smaller ones. They work better for me keeping it in the original pack & not a freezer bag. I have been looking into them for a while but to get a good one would be out of my budget right now. It would be awesome to win one!! By the way your class in Spartanburg was great!

    • Kat

      I imagine that I could save over $5,000. Besides being able to save frozen food longer, I will be more able to make my own food when ingredients are on great sales and then keep them in the freezer until we need them! I have a a stand up freezer with lots of space! Also, if we process our own venison this year, we will be able to keep meat in the freezer for almost nothing all year long!

    • I would LOVE to have a FoodSaver!!!!  I already have a chest freezer but traditional freezer bags don’t always work well and you end up with freezer-burn!!  It is hard to save exactly how much you could save but I would think it would be a lot.  I like the idea of pre-seasoning and then freezing.  It would make dinner time so much faster!

      My family could save tons of money with one of these. We do lots of fishing and shrimping and hunting. We also buy meat in bulk. Not only would we save money with one of these I imagine tons of space in our freezers. I would love to have one of these but have never tried one. Saving several hundreds a year sounds great to me:)

    • I would love to have one of these! It’s just the hubs and I (we are newlyweds) and we waste so much food since it’s hard cooking for two. This would help save a few hundred a year I am sure with all the freezing we could do!!

      I’m not sure how much I could save but I think it would be a LOT.  Sure hope I win.

    • Not Entering – I have one. and I love it.
      I bought my first one at a yard sale – can you believe it?  It was $2.00, but I also bought a pasta maker which was $10.00. I talked the lady in to selling me both for $7.00, because it was all I had!

      I just ‘upgraded’ to the vacuum seal type with canister attachment. It works great and I can’t imagine putting food in the freezer with out it.

      We even use it to protect camping items (matches, sugar, salt, flour) in between camping adventures during the summer!

      I’d probably save over $100. Freezer burn is such a pain and repackaging would be MUCH easier with a foodsaver.

    • This would save a fortune for me.  We actually go in with a friend each year, and buy a whole cow.  You can save a lot of money by doing that, since you get all of your beef (steaks, ribs, ground beef) for one price across the board.  A meat processor will do all the cuts for you, and voila.  I need 1 of these!

      And I could save a TON of money.  I used to have one but have not been able to afford to buy another.  I have used the Ziploc-brand bags with the little pump and they are good but not great like the FoodSaver.  I would LOVE to have this product!!  I could then stop paying for throw-away expensive bags plus continue to buy meat in bulk and have it last longer in the freezer.

      I have used mine at least once per week and have probably saved over $1000 over the last couple years.  I usually put half in the fridge and half in a foodsaver bag in the freezer.

    • I’d love to go buy a quarter of a cow and throw it in the deep freeze we just bought, but I’m so afraid it would get freezer burned before we could eat it all.  Something like this would be wonderful.  I was told I can get beef for about $2.25 a pound if I buy it like that – that’s a big savings when you consider the cost of steaks, roast, even ground chuck!

      We love foodsaver.  It could easily save us several hundred dollars a year.

    • I would love to have a food saver. A friend of my mom’s had one when we were kids and my sister and I would go over to her house on sunday’s after church and help her “seal” up anything that she would have. She would save her groceries for us so we could “seal” it up. Looking back, she must have gone shoppng the night before to have the meat and veggies everyweek just for us!! A great memory! I would love to have one because I love to buy meat on sale and be able to freeze it as well without it getting freezer burn as well- and perhaps make cool memories with my kids as well!

    • WOW!  I have seen and heard about these units.  They look absolutely phenomenal, although, I have not been in a position to purchase one, I would imagine the savings could stack up fairly quickly.  I am not a “bulk food” shopper though, but I think it would be great for those great meat sales and my leftovers.  Sometimes, you just don’t want to eat 3 nights of spaghetti sauce – you know what I mean – Ha Ha!  As for a dollar amount????  I would have to guess on that one, but probably $600.00 a year.  That’s $50.00 a month, I think my math is pretty realistic, at least for me.

      Good Luck Everybody!!!!!!

      Oh what a dream this would be for me!  I have wanted a foodsaver for the longest time.
      On cereal alone, Ill bet 200.00 a year could be saved.  But I have to admit, I would go CRAZY sealing meat (and most likely purchased reduced meats(daily) just so that I could use it more often)
      When all is said and done, Im sure our family of 6 could save around $500.00- $700.00 a year!
      Thanks for stepping up and asking if you could do this review!
      AWESOME job!!!

      This would be a huge money saver for my family.  With my daughters very odd food/medical issues we can only use certain cuts of meat and it’s usually the ones that never go on a good sale.  It would be great to build up a stockpile in my freezer.

    • one billion dollars… lol.  :)

    • and i liked foodsaver on fb. :)

    • Wow probably a couple of hundred dollars by buying meat in bulk! Not to mention buying and freezing fresh fruit!

    • I would imagine I could save a lot of money and mostly I could save myself from feeling sick every time I throw away badly freezer burned items that were too bad to salvage.  I work really hard using coupons and shopping sales to stock the freezer, then that time, effort and money is down the drain when things are lost to freezer burn or even pantry staleness.  The foodsaver would be a huge help!  I would guess I toss about $100-300 in stale/freezer burned food a year (that estimate is after coupons too!). 

    • I think I would save $50-$100. If food even hints of the freezer burn smell, I cannot eat it.

    • We could save at least 500 a year!  I used to own one and then it broke!  They are great.

      I could easily save 200-250 a month with the FoodSaver. We make a lot of healthy-version snack foods (taquitos, calzones, burritos) for easy meals. But sealing them up in ziplock bags or tupperware doesn’t get all the air out and then it becomes a waste of money and time. I personally like to buy any produce that is on sale then chop it up and freeze it in smaller portions for cooking but loose most of it to freezer burn. I just tossed a nearly whole head of broccoli this morning.

    • I just purchased 80 pounds of chicken legs and thighs for 50 cents a pound.  I double bagged everything and put it in the freezer.  The FoodSaver would help alot!  I believe that with just the two of us, we could save about $300.00 a year on waste.

I really do not know how much I would save with this amazing product, but I do know that I cannot afford it unless I was lucky enough to WIN one. Then, I would use it like crazy, and sing it’s praises to every mom I know!!  If I had to venture a guess, I would put it in the $300+ range. Time wise for freezing with marinades added, PRICELESS!

      I think it would depend on the amount you buy and use it but I know I am tired of throwing out freezer burn meat.  I think at least over $650.00 a year for an average American family and to me that is very good. I love to do freezer meals for the family and to have on hand in case of a needed sick person at church or whatever. Would love to have one.

    • Alot! Maybe $150 a year. We cook ahead  a few times a year and this would really help out! with 4 kids sometimes our schedule gets ahead of us and this would really help us to cook ahead more. Thanks!

    • The FoodSaver is a great way to store food you’ve made during a bulk cooking session or to freeze leftovers.   Every time you ca do those two things, you can really stretch your grocery budget. If you’ve gotten a super low price on a food item or received an item for a gift, it’s worthwhile to vacuum seal it and toss it in the freezer to extend it’s shelf life. The extra time you can store the food makes it worth the expense to me.  When you through food in the garbage, you are throwing money in the trash. By not throwing food in the garbage, whether it is fresh groceries leftovers, you are saving money. FoodSaver can possibly save you money by preserving the food you have and/or allowing you to buy in bulk, but that might not be the best reason to buy it. For our family it’s best used as a like a Tivo… to time-shift your cooking, improve the quality of your food, and free your mind from thinking about expiration dates.

      I think I could save at least a couple hundred dollars!

    • I’m not sure how much money I would save but I would love for the meat in my freezer to look fresh every time I use it. 

    • Can easily save over $500 in meat and $250 in fruit and veggies.

    • Gosh from fresh vegetables to meat, we could save thousand’s on the food that goes to waste in the refrigerator!

      OMG!! I was just thinking about one of these the other day. My friend and I were talking about food freezers and how the food gets freezer burned easily. Right now, I have fish and chicken that I need to throw away. I think that I could at least save up to $ 900 a year.  Would love to win one thaks Jenney.

      I love our FoodSaver!  You can get big boxes of the bags at Sam’s and I’ve found some on ebay that seem to work and clost less (they are 50 ft rolls).  Rolls are cheaper than the bags and if there wasn’t raw meat in them you can wash and resuse them.  We even freeze dishes we’ve prepared in 11×7 dishes then bag (they’ll fit in the 11″ roll bags).

      It would probably save me over $100/year. I absolutely hate losing stuff to freezer burn.

    • Up to $2700 per year- Leeann Williams

    • We have a small extra freezer and just packing them in ziploc bags takes up a lot of room.  The foodsaver would be a huge help saving room in the freezer, which means I can buy more meat when it is on sale!!  I bet I could save enough to pay for the foodsaver easily!

      I’m sure my family could save hundreds of dollars a year, Most of the vegetables I buy are frozen, so it’s not just meat that I would be saving money on; and if we put in a garden this year that would give us even more savings since we usually always freeze some of our vegetables.

      I would LOVE to have one of these. I have a big garden each summer and like to freeze what I can, I believe this would keep things fresher and I would have less waste. I also buy meat in bulk when it goes on sale and sometimes have issues with freezer burn. I believe this would help me save 200-300 a year.

    • I would probably save a couple of thousand. Not only could I save by buying meats and produce but I have just started making my youngest baby food and I could freeze that as well. I have just recently started using coupons and shopping strategically so this would really help me start building up a stockpile.

      My best friend has one of these, and I am sooooo JEALOUS lol.  She saves a ton of money with hers.  We buy most of our meat once a month and freeze it in individual ziploc bags.  Many times when we go to pull it out, there are quite a few that are freezer burnt and have to be thrown away.  We could probably save about $300 or so a year if we had one!

      I wouldnt even know how to estimate the savings! Between the meat, fresh fruit and vegetables and snaks that come in boxes (pizza rolls, etc) that seem to always go bad after you have opened them, the savings would be huge!! Not to mention toys like this are fun to use lol

    • As a single, working mom of two boys who are always on the go I could easily save $400-500 a year with this product. I am also going to school, so with everything that I have going on it is so easy to throw something in the freezer and not remember it until it’s too late.

      I don’t buy anything unless it’s on special, and when it’s on special, I buy a 4 month supply!  Unfortunately, some of that ends up flavorless by the time we eat it due to freezer burn.  Sometimes, we even end up throwing it away.  But if I had the Food Saver, I’d be able to buy in bulk and not worry about what it will be like when we end up eating it.  Between meats, vegetables and baked goods, the Food Saver could easily save our family up to $2000 a year!!!

      Hey Jenny,
      I have looked at these for the last year wondering how effective they are and if it would be worth investing in one.  I keep getting cold feet because of the price and kept hoping to find one for a really good price.   Based on your review, I’m imagining I could easily save $500 on meat alone, in a year.  Zowwy!!  I inherited my parent’s upright freezer, so I now have visions of perfectly kept meats, individual plates of left overs and ready to go casseroles dancing in my head!!  Thanks for a chance to win one!

    • I imagine saving a couple of hundred dollars per year if I could vaccum seal my foods.  I love to “can” my own goods and also buy in bulk when appropriate.  With the food saver I believe I would not be throwing out food items due to freezer burn (what a waste of money)!

      We borrow a unit to seal hiking/camping meals for my Boy Scout trips.  Not purchasing those meals saves at least $75 every trip in food.  Sure would be nice to have one of our own.  Not just freezer, but buying bulk for the fridge would be nice, too – cheese blocks, and leftovers are great in these bags. They are also awesome for re-sealing that chip bag…no more stale chips. Thanks.  Too many savings to add up.

      I have a much older model that doesn’t work very well anymore and I really miss using mine.  I know I could save a ton of time and money every year by having a new one that works well.  This way I can prepare more meals and do more freezer cooking and have it last longer and make my days and nights easier as we are busy with school homework and working full time.  Besides just being able to buy my meats in bulk would easily save me $200 – $300 a year!

    • Accounting for bulk purchases (per month) of ground beef, ground chuck, ground turkey, vegetables, fruit, chuck roasts, and pork I could save an estimated $3,612.00 a year using the FoodSaver.  I do have an upright freezer and I’ve been using freezer storage bags.  The freezer bags do not seem to compare to what the FoodSaver says it can do.  I’m recently divorced with two small kids.  I homeschool my children, too.  I’ve become a recent coupon user (I rely on your site heavily!) because I’m living off one-third the income.  Saving money is a big deal for me and it is a lesson I incorporate (where appropriate) in math class.  Having a FoodSaver would save our food & money!

      I have no clue of a real figure on what I could save, but I would LOVE to find out!  I’ve always been reluctant to buy much in bulk, depsite knowing the savings, because I’ve been concerned about things getting lost in the great freezer abyss and not being found until they are unidentifiable.

    • Savings would be astronomical! I usually do not buy much in bulk because it is ruined in a month or two. It would be wonderful to buy the family pack of meat and be able to safely and securely freeze it and know it would last for months! I have an extra freezer and the items in it I can actually eat, only take up one shelf out of five. Like many people, I have been unemployed for 18 months, started using coupons and trying to find any way to save money on groceries for our family. Usually it means not buying much and eating a lot of pasta meals.

      Just like you, Jenny, we fight freezer burn in our home freezer.  I estimate the food saver would save the cost of all meats I buy that are not going to be consumed that week.  This is likley, on average, $20 per week….that’s $1,040 per year.  Then, lets talk about produce….I think I could save another $1,000 per year by vaccuum sealing produce.  I used to have one years back, but because my ex loved his smoker, and the food saver was a necessary step before smoking meats, he took the Food Saver with him.  I’d love to have another one.  Now if they only sold the bags in every grocery store and put out coupons for them, we’d be in heaven.  Thanks!!

      I have an older model – if you really are freezing something to use in the next few months it’s great – but the bags are expensive and for many items that you are going to use within a couple of weeks or for anything that you want to be able to open and then then close or reseal the bag you have to weigh the cost of the bags as might not be a big savings.  (also you should not reuse these bags especially if they’ve been in contact with proteins – including cheese) as potential for bacteria/salmonella increases.

But I could save a lot of money getting steak on sale and using the FoodSaver compared to going out for steak dinners with a family of 6!

    • Hopefully a bunch! At least $100!

      Well if time=money, and it will save me time putting away foods and prepping foods, then I’d estimate easily over $500 per year.

      I would love this for my son’s family. Has 3 children and lives near a beach. Constantly trying to protect items from dampness and water not to mention saving more food in the freezer for longer periods!! Being their nanny and p/t chef, this would save a bundle of money on food and other items.

    • i bet i could save about 200.00 a year with one of these.

    • I could probably save $1000 a year if I had a Foodsaver.  Numerous items are freezable including meat, bread, cakes, vegetables, fruits, soups, etc.  Buying when items are on sale to use later would be so much easier and healthier especially being on a strict diet for medical reasons you would be able to prepare meals ahead and freeze them to insure you have them for a later date when items are not on sale or in season to meet your needs.  I would love to have a Foodsaver!

    • Wow, thousands?  One, it cuts on freezer burn and it helps with space and organization!  I only have the freezer on the fridge, and i wind up throwing away things like strawberried, blueberries, and meat because it goes bad fast!  I am allergic to beef, so I try to stock up on ground turkey at a good price.  It would be nice to not throw it away!

    • i cant even estimate how much, i think it would be sooo much :) $500?

    • I would say at least $500 a year. I throw out a lot of freezer burn in a year.

    • I WOULD ABSOLUTELY LOVE TO WIN ONE OF THESE MACHINES! WE ARE A FAMILY OF 4 & WOULD SAVE AROUND $1000 PER YEAR ALONE!  MY KIDS & HUBBY CAN  REALLY EAT …ALOT!!  IT WOULD MAKE LIFE SO MUCH EASIER !

      I was just looking at one of these the other day with a family member who already has one. I know that it would save us $200 to $300 a month not just in freezer burn but also because I could make more “make a head meals” for those days when we would normally get take out.

      I could save about $1000 or more each year.  We eat venison, so that’s a money saver right there, however it always gets freezer burn before we are even 1/4 of the way through the deer!  I end up thowing it out much of time and getting beef.  If my venison lasted that long it would save me not only the cost of freezer bags but the cost of meat itself!  I could REALLY use this especially w/ hunting season just around the corner!!! :)

    • This is awesome!  I haven’t tried one yet but I could see where it would be a huge money saver!

      I could save well over $1000 a year with a Foodsaver.  Our freezer will form freezer burn within 2 weeks.  If I freeze something I know we still have to eat it quickly, leaving me unable to stock up!   I have been telling my husband that I needed a sealer so I can buy more when meat and veggies are on sale.  With a Foodsaver I can freeze more…throw away less!!

      hmmmm…….after looking at these comments – I can’t help but wonder why everyone doesn’t own one of these — you are all throwing food away due to freezer burn — seems the food saver would pay for itself in no time at all!.  Maybe, Jenny could get them to do a really good discount for her couponers….just a thought…

      I have a Foodsaver and LOVE it.  It sits on my counter and is used at least once everyday.  I want to win one for my DIL.  She works hard at her job and prepared meals ahead for her family.  She shops for deals, uses coupons to save money.  The only thing left would be a Foodsaver that would allow all this hard work to stay fresh for longer.  She can’t afford to buy one, yet really needs one. 

    • Rob

      I’ve often seen meats go on sale, only to find that you have to buy half the side of a cow… Since its just my wife and I, we haven’t bought those in the past. We figured that the meat would get burned by the time we got around to eating all of it… and we definitely didn’t want to waste that… this seems like a perfect soultion for us! How much could we save? Who knows the exact amount ($100, $300 or more?), but if we win, we’ll be on our way to finding out!!  :-)

    • I buy groceries once a month at the commissary so I already save money doing that. I also use all my coupon! I freeze fresh produce in bags and they take up lots of space. A Foodsaver would be a great asset for keeping all my frozen meat and vegetables protected.I think I could save $50-$60 by using this product.Have been looking at them, but not in the budget at this time. I would love to try it and share my results. Thank you for sponsoring the giveaway.

      This could really help me save money in the obvious way, but also by not making me go to the store so often for my meats!  I hate freezing meat because no matter what I do they always end up with freezer burn!  Thus, I go to the store ever 4 days or so and I am TIRED of it!  Time plus gas would be a huge savings!  On top of that, I could shop one big trip at this commissary and save even more!

      I would probably save around $300-400 easily and that’s just an estimated, educated guess.  Depending on sales, coupons and stacking, it could really be way more than that!  I only estimated 50% savings off $2/day for meat for 365 days.  You and I both know that is doable and then some! :)

      I have a family of 6, 3 kids and an elderly diabetic mother in law.  We buy in bulk and pre make meals for the crazy days and split up the meats for different meals.  We clean our freezer out once a month and wind up throwing stuff out due to freezer burn.  I believe this Foodsaver would save me at least $500.00 a year if not more.  There is only one person working and the more we can save the more we can put toward other bills.  I have been wanting a Foodsaver for a long time now and know that it will help tremendously.

      I’m sure I could save about $1,000 or so.  Not only would I be able to save meat longer, but I could also use it to seal cheeses, open bags of cereal (because you know that the kids never remember to close the bags/boxes of cereal), and certain veggies that tend to wilt quickly.  This means you can buy MORE of the foods that are on sale, so that you don’t have to pay extra later!  I would LOVE to have one of these!

      Since I live alone, I could save quite a bit of money. I like to buy in bulk for saving but many times my items have freezer burn on them by the time I get a chance to cook them (chicken is the worst!). I have about 3 different “food savers” gadgets but when I go back to buy bags at the store, the bags are usually discontinued.  FoodSaver has been around for a long time and I know I wouldn’t have problems finding replacment bags for it.  My parents have had one for many years and just won’t give it up to me!!!

      I believe I would save at least $150 a month ($1800 a year).  With all the freezer burn that goes on in my freezer I would love to put a stop to that.  Plus cutting down on prep time for cooking (i.e. seasoning and marinating in advance) will help me save.  I have a tendency to take out meats and put it in the fridge and then when it takes a while to thaw (I may later decide that it will be to much to season and cook) I will just go pick up something to eat.  Since I can’t refreeze the meat it will get left in the fridge and then I have to throw it out anyway since I couldn’t use it.  So, lets count the savings… 1) Reduce freezer burn, 2) Actually use the meats I thaw, and 3) No more buying fast foods when frustrated with the work I will have to do.  Looks like some great savings are in store!

      Hello Jenny!   My  monthly food budget for my family of four (plus 2 dogs ,2 cats,4 fish, 2 turtles and 3 chickens – is $200. This includes all pet food, household cleaners and the personal items (shampoo etc) department. Only you and your readers would believe me! lol! I am posting this in hopes of winning the Food Saver system. I have long wanted one but…..I’m a stay at home mom and our budget just doesn’t include that. BUT if I could convince my husband that our food in the freezer would last at LEAST three times as the conventional way (i.e.”baggies”)…..
      At any rate – If I had the food saver system – I would saveAT LEAST $100 a month….not to mention all of the goodies from our garden – if THEY were frozen (properly) the savings would be GINORMOUS!!!!! Tomatoes, Potatoes, onions, carrots, greenbeans, all different types of peas, many, many different garden goodies…YUM!!!!
      Ima crossin’ my fingers n toes here!
      Great work Jenny – you’ve changed our lives (as well as standard of living) soooo much for the better! Thank you!!!

      Not sure – figure we use at least 5 bags (ziplock type) a day and use other plastic or glassware for fridge or freezer storage.  It may be one of those things that cannot be economically justified.  Or maybe it can be with food waste savings.  I hate to admit when food goes in the trash or disposal.  I’d like to think the cost of the unit would be covered within a year.  So $250/year.

      I have no doubt we would save between $300-$500 a year just by sealing in fresh fruits, veggies, and buying meat in bulk and freezing it in individual quantities. Oh, and the amazing fish my husband catches in the Gulf during the summer. Instead we inhale the fish in a matter of weeks so we can enjoy it before it goes bad. Wish I could have it in winter months. Would be a refreshing dinner since winter meals can get so heavy.

      I would guess around 600 which is to much when you really tink about it.

    • I regularly freeze meats, breads, desserts, herbs from my garden and veggies.  I’ve been afraid to try fruits because of the “freezer burn” issue, but I have a friend who got one of these, and it hasn’t been an problem at all for him.  Would love to win one for myself :)!  I buy at least $20 worth of fressh produce a week and sometimes we don’t quite eat it all up before it turns so this would save me quite a few dollars from spoilage.  Plus I would be able to buy more produce in bulk when it is on sale and freeze it safely, so that would add up to quite a bit more.  I had once figured having one of these foodsaver kits would save me around $200, so it would definately cover the cost it would be even better to win it!

      I want food saver for a while its on my birthday wish list and christmas, it would save so much money if i had one. I freeze evrything from meats, veggies, fruits breads, dairy products.

      Putting a number on the savings is hard but I would think we could save a couple hundred dollars and maybe more! I have wanted one of these for some time and it would be awesome to win!

    • I would say around $1,000.00 a year because i buy meats in bulk for my family of four. I always buy fresh fruits and vegetables too and would love to try to freeze them with FoodSaver Vacuum Seal System because they always get bad in my refrigerator. I have not tried freezing them with ziploc because of the freezer burn. I am praying to win this! Thank you!

      I’m sure I would save around $2,000 because if I knew I could keep all my food (meats and produce primarily) from freezer burn I would be buying way more when prices are good. I’ve been anxious to try one of these but just haven’t put the money aside yet. The marinading idea is genius! I would be ecstatic to win one!!

    • Easy…Probably at least $200.00 just in meat alone! Maybe morejust because of getting rid of freezer bags!

      The amount of money you could save with a FoodSaver is mountainous! My father is an avid hunter and heavily relies on his FoodSaver once his deer meat is processed. We finally got him a new FoodSaver for Christmas this past year because his of 10+ years had finally given out. They also seal and freeze pecans every year.

      Food isn’t the only thing my parents use their FoodSaver for. They have used it to seal valuables and family treasures to keep them safe from everyday elements. Mom has even sealed newspapers from important life events!

      My parents have saved hundreds of dollars over the years with their FoodSaver. If I had one, I know I’d save at least $500 a year!

      I love to buy meat in bulk when I have a little extra cash and give it to my family to help them stock up for winter.  The Foodsaver would be great because it would help the meat stay fresher longer.  I would estimate I could probably save around $500 a year.

      I would love a food saver!  My family could save at least $500 if not more just storing meat when buying on sale since my husband is mr steak and potatoes.  Since I love to shop at farmers markets, it would be great to follow your example and freeze produce when it is in season so that we can enjoy it all year!

      I think it would save us about $200-$300. This Foodsaver would be great for saving on meats.

      Awesome!  I think we would probably save around $50 – $75 a year with this.  We don’t usually freeze meat because once it is in the freezer, I almost always leave it in there so long that it gets freezer burn and I have to throw it out.

      I just decided to start doing the bulk of my cooking via freezer method. I have the initial plans (cooking day set, shopping list for sale items and recipes) and this little prize would put the icing on the cake! I think I can reduce our food budget at least $200 monthly this way for a savings of $1200 yearly! Once you factor in incidentals that would have normally made the trash due to freezer burn, I am sure the number will be even higher!!! I SO would love to have this as I start this new cooking journey!

      We freeze so much stuff, but keep pretty good track of rotating everything so nothing gets freezer burn.  I would LOVE to be able to freeze more fruits though…we don’t do that much since it seems to go bad more quickly.  I would guess we could save around $200-400 in fruit gone bad!

      I have a teen age daughter with learning disabilities and have been told to teach her life skills which includes cooking. This machine would be great for her to learn to seal and protect the food we buy on sale. She already helps me with my coupons and loves to find the clearance items at the store before I do. With a family of 6 I am sure it would save us a great deal allowing us to buy in bulk and not worry about it going bad. Thanks

      750-1250 per year.  My Mother and I can our garden vegetables and freeze strawberries and blueberries but they tend to get frostbite and have odd taste after a few months.  I have heard that these are incredibly good so I would LOVE to give it a try.  Canning is a great way to eat fresh and save, now if I could just keep from throwing out the “frozen” foods we would be SET!!!! Thanks Jenny for everything…I have spread the word to so many of my friends! Wendy

      We have a family of 3 – hubby, mother and I – and we are all trying to save money and eat healthy.  So, we are really trying to maintain portion control.  With a Foodsaver we would still be able to buy our “Family Size” packages of meat and separate them into smaller portions.  I have also been wanting to learn to can and have been looking at various ways to do canning and freezing for vegetable.  I keep meaning to look into buying bushels of fresh vegetables to either can or freeze and this Foodsaver would work wonderfully for this.  We could probably save hundreds of dollars a year on meats and fresh vegetables.  Thanks for offering this contest!

    • Thank you!! We shop at sams and I buy all my meat in bulk and then the ziplocs to store them in and it would save us about $600.00 a year.  I to have always wanted one but they oh so expensive for us and not in our budget.

      We would save probably about $400-$500 and possibly even more. I just got a deep
      freezer and with this Foodsaver vacumn sealer kit, I would be able to purchase a
      quarter of a cow from a local farmer and get the meat portioned and vacumned
      sealed. It actually costs $1 more a pound when you have them package it. So that
      alone is about $300 in savings just for beef! I’m actually so excited thinking
      about the possibilities…I could buy veggies/fruit in season and freeze them in
      small portion sizes to use each week, seal soup/meal portions to bring to work.

      I can save over 3-3500 a year. Meats, cheese, lettuce, chips, cookies, and so on. I had one for 6 years and have not had the money to get a new one. I absolutely LOVED IT. I didn’t just use it to vacuum seal items then freeze. I used it to seal my chips, cookies, and cereal. I used it to preserve valuable items (jewelry,etc) I used it to store my homemade baby food, family vacations-something always leaked in the bag (not if I had it in a food saver bag). I could go on and on about what this thing did for me and my family. Just know I miss my old one and want a new one……

    •  I would use it to seal veggies fresh from the garden and repackage meat. I’m guessing I would save about $750 year.

      I have had a foodsaver unit for over 3 yrs now, and I simply couldn’t live without it! We buy steaks in bulk when our IGA and Bi-Lo have them on sale – also snow crab legs – so that saves us a ton of money.  We have a large garden (1.25 acres) and I have canned and bagged tomatoes, peas, collards, turnip & mustard greens, etc.  Also great for individually freezing and then bagging jalapeno, banana and habanero peppers!  I also put up about 2 bushels of peaches and 8 gallons of blackberr. . also red & green bell peppers!  My foodsaver has saved me well over $2,000.00 in the time I’ve had it.  Got leftover spaghetti sauce, chili, soup, etc? Freeze it in serving size butter bowls and then dump it out in a foodsaver bag!  Also, prime rib. . . . yum!  We raise and butcher our hogs, grind, case and smoke sausage, etc. . . you can use the foodsaver for anything!!!! Would love to win a new one. . . and donate my old one to our church kitchen!!!  Excellent also for resealilng – pop tarts, cereal bags, chip bags, etc.  A Million uses!!!!!

    • I think I could save hundreds.  It would be so nice not to have to worry about freezer burn on food.

    •  I would probably save about $200 a year.  I already marinate meats (chicken especially!) before freezing in zip top bags…I bet vacuum sealing them would intensify the flavor.  I bet you could also use it like the Iron Chefs do to quick marinate and then poach food in the marinade.

      I would think I could save several hundred dollars just being able to preserve things longer without the risk of freezer burn!!!

      I think I could save at least $200 a year with a Foodsaver just by being better able to double up on cooking and freezing leftovers so we don’t have that night where we’re too lazy to actually cook and go out to dinner instead.

    • $100 a month easily!!! I love the idea of owning one, but we are on such a tight budget because we are trying to save for our first house…HATE RENTING! This would be perfect and WONDERFUL to have! : )

      I know we could save $1000s! We had an old foodsaver and loved it, but then it stopped working. We have been looking to get a new one but the price is over our budget. We would love to be able to food vac our homegrown vegetables, beef from a full cow we buy from our neighbors and the venison that we put up in our freezer each year.

      Would save around 100 to 200 a month, since we would be able to buy a little more in bulk and not waste it.

      If I could keep the food I am buying now from getting freezer burn and molding in the fridge then I would really be saving at least $2400 annually. I could also be stocking up on fresh produce and thats an even bigger savings. I really need one of those Foodsavers.

      I think I could save over a hundred dollars.  I am like you having to throw things away that I let get freezer burn.  This would solve that.  Thanks.

    • Well, with a family of 6, I could save probably $100’s of dollars with a FoodSaver. We have started buying local pasture-fed beef. We buy 1/2 a cow at a time & that’s a lot of meat to package & freeze! We also have a large garden where we grow our own organic veggies. And don’t forget the fresh caught fish from my hubby! We definitely have lots of reasons to ‘save the food’ from freezer burn. ;) Thanks, Jenny!

      My husband and I have looked at them a few times, but we’re not sure about the savings given the cost of the seal bags (they don’t go on sale, do they?).  I just try to be really good about using stuff quickly, but it would be nice to have.  I really can’t guess about savings.

      It is so frustrating to go through the work of wrapping meat/veggies & putting them in the ziplock bag only to go into the freezer at a later date and see that the bag has busted open potentially ruining the item!  Arrgh!  I would venture to guess that we would probably save between $500 – $1000 in meat, just based on the rising cost of everything now!

And with a family of five I have to by in bulk when it comes to meat but of course we do not need to cook every single peace of meat at one meal and the rest thats not cooked gets put in freezer bag but always forgotten in the back of freezer and when I finally get to it what do you know freezer burn.

    • Wow!  I think I would save $500.00 minimum.  I always go  to the store early to pick up bargains in the meat department and, then, hurry home to  freeze.  With 8 children still at home, I am always looking for a better way to save money and food.  Hate it when I have to throw something out due to freezer burn, regardless of whether it’s meat or fruits and veggies.

      Hi! I am on my sec. foodsaver and would not be without one. Had the last one for about ten years now, so it’s time to get a new one. You will save thousands if you buy in bulk. No freezer burn ever on anything I have sealed. As a matter of fact had gornish game hens last night that I sealed and froze 2 years ago! If you got the mason jar sealer with yours try it for your spices and herbs etc. It will extend their life as well.

      There is no doubt that I would save thousands! With something like this, the sky is the limit. I could save so many items from my garden. I am sure that it would keep herbs fresh for winter cooking.

      Also, I like to hit Kroger for reduced price meat to freeze. Often I break them up into meal sized portions and freeze. This would be a great way to protect these types of items and get your meat for half off retail.

      Hummm….now my head is spinning with ideas of what I could seal….

      I would estimate that I could save $400 between freezer burn, the expense of buying freezer bags, and stocking up.

    • I would save a ton!!! In a year probably in the 1000’s! I have a nice size freezer that I already use, but I am afraid to stock up on too much because if it stays there too long then it will be freezer burned. I would be able to have a good stock of meat put away, so I wouldn’t be buying just because my husband says he wants pork tonight!! Then when garden time comes around next year I would have a great way to keep my veggies!  It would be so awesome….of course if it works a well as it says it’s supposed to!  Would love to have one!!!!!

      I could easily save over $400 a year with a foodsaver.  My dad has sworn by this handy gadget for years, but I’ve never been able to splurge for one in my home.  My sweet dad always brings me a cooler full of vacuum sealed food when my parents come for a visit and everything stays fresh for months on end. I would love to be able to stock up on meats when they are on sale and it’s a dream to try my hand at homemade baby food.   I want to put an end to freezer burn and an end to wastefulness.

    • A friend has one of these and loves it. I dont know how much I would save, but anything  would be a plus. I have leftovers all the time. I would also like to buy in quantity, but don’t because the store wrap is not good and I don’t have the time to go through all the work of wrapping in white paper then aluminum foil. This would not only save me money but time.

    • I don’t know that we’d save any money, but we sure would save our appetites!  I am too cheap to throw out food, so we’ve had some less than savory meals.  We also freeze a lot of veggies from our garden and I’d love to be able to buy fewer ziplocks!

    • I like FoodSaver!

    • Oh wow! I have always wanted one of these, but wasn’t sure how well it would work. I have a couple of guys friends that always offer me deer meat, but I usually turn it down because I know it will freezer burn before I can use it. Some of my neighbors with gardens share their vegetables with me as well. Being a single mom with no support from the father, this foodsaver would definately save me money! I could freeze everything that is given to me. There’s no telling how much it would save me. Just guessing, probably around $400 to $500 every year. I could use that money for other things. Thanks so much for doing this review, and give away. And, thanks so much for providing us with such a great website to help us save money! :-)

      I would probably save $150 a year with a foodsaver.  I had to borrow my parents the other weekend when my husband went deep sea fishing and brought home all that fish to fresh.  It is a much older version and worked well, but seemed to leave a little air inside.  The newer version I’m sure is much better.

      I haven’t done a lot of freezing in the past because I don’t have a lot of freezer space.  I would feel more comfortable using the small space I have if I knew that the food wasn’t going to get freezer burnt so quickly.

    • I love FoodSaver!!!!!! I brought one several years ago but my parents grabbed it when I moved from Florida to NC.

      • For some reason it wouldn’t let me finish. I know for fact the year that I had the machine I was able to save at least $20 to $300 in my grocery bill. Not to mention that I started buying in bulking and giving packets to my parents and sister.

        As a side note, when you do get one make sure to add your marinade and favorite veggies to the bag. That way your meat and veggies ares soaking up the flavor of the marinate as the freeze and unfreeze.

        Man I am so jealous I want one right now. I hope I win. That would so rock.

      We could probably save about $400 or more dollars a year. We are lucky to have a 2nd fridge and that’s where we store a ton of our extra stuff. The freezer is full of meet b/c we also buy in bulk and freeze it so all I have to do is thaw it and cook it. The fridge side is cool b/c all drinks and extra water, etc. go in there for the kids. I also like to freeze broth that comes off of some of my cooked experiments, and the vacuum thing could be a neat experiment with that as well. We use everypart of what we purchase as humanly possible.

    • Yes, I have always wanted to try one too but never could afford to. So winning one would be awesome. I recently graduated from culinary school with tons of extra weight on me and therefore have gone on a major diet. The hubby is complaining that I am not cooking him anything good. So having this not only would save me hundreds if not thousands of dollars, I could cook a ton of stuff at once and freeze for my husband to heat up and it would make a really hard working man who is sooooo skinny very happy!  :-)

      I have the older one over 10 years. It came with the piece that attaches to mason jars. I buy gallon cans of puddings, fruit, and make several types of soup, put what i’ll eat at one time, suck the air out, it doesnt can them but put in frige.  Pudding and fruit will last about a month. You can freeze the soups if you want. You can also wash the bags out, let them dry out good and reuse them several times. I have saved thousands.

    • I believe I could save at least $500 by using the Food Saver!  I buy fresh boneless skinless chicken tenders when then are 1/2 off at the Dollar General Market (making them $1.48/lb) and freeze them.  Needless to say, we eat a LOT of chicken to make sure it doesn’t get freezer burnt.  Also, we raise a large garden and usually put up 100+ ears of corn per year.  It would most definitely be a huge help for my family of 5!

    • I’m not sure how much I’d end up saving – I know it would be astronomical – especially when you’re on a budget.  This is a huge helper during hunting season when we’re trying to package and freeze meats – my husbands friend had one that they all used when processing meat (it was a group activity), but his dog ate it….I’m not kidding!

    • At least $500/year. My husband loves meat and we don’t have the discipline to buy large quanities when it is on sale. This item would make us be much more diligent!

    • I’ve never tried one but I know people who rave about them.  I would save several hundred with a family of eight, probably $400-$500.  That would be great.  Thanks for all you do, I love saving money.

      I think being a single mom on a limited income I could save quite a bit by buying in bulk and freezing to use at different times, like you stated in your review!

    • I know it would have saved me a ton a few weeks ago :( Our refrigerator died and I had to throw all the freezer items on ice to try to save them. Then later I discovered that water had seeped into everything that was wrapped in plastic wrap (I do all our bulk meat like that to cut down on freezer burn.) I easily threw away $200 worth of food that could have been saved if it were vacuum sealed (I absolutely loathe throwing away food!)

      It’s just me at home but I still think this could save me at least $200 or $300 per year.  I would love to be able to cook and not have to toss leftovers because they get icky before I can finishsomething like a whole lasagna.  I could freeze individual portions and not have to buy frozen dinners.  That would be great!

      I seriously researched canning and preserving this year as we started our first major garden. Things being as they are, it costs several hundred dollars to have quality (not stuff that will flake off or break in a couple years) equipment. I have literally watched an entire summer’s bounty go out the door. Our local farmers’ market is fabulous and because the fruits, meats and veggies are so fresh they last longer, anyway, but that only goes so far. I made my son’s food when he was a baby (he is now three) and want the whole family to live that kind of healthier lifestyle. Our pullets are now old enough and have started laying. We’ve got seeds from this year’s garden ready to go for spring… and since our economic situation doesn’t appear to be looking up any time soon I’m really worried that I won’t be able to preserve next year, either. I’ve clicked ‘like’ on facebook. I can only say that having a FoodSaver would save hundreds and feed my family healthier at the same time.

      I have a large family and I would love to own a Foodsaver. I can sit here and think of so much money I could save by having one. The leftovers to save, the sales I could stock up on and not have to worry about freezer burn, the memories I could seal up and save for years down the road and my mind goes on and on!!! I bet I could easily save $1200-$1400 a year by having one. Wish I could afford to just go buy one, but with this economy I just can’t free up the funds to do so.

    • I don’t need to enter, just want to tell you how wonderful they are!  I’ve had one for more than 10 years, and it’s been a huge savings!  Especially for meat – one of the grocery stores used to do New York strips for $1.99 a pound for 18 pound packages.  I would get 3 or four, have them cut into 1 inch steaks, vacuum seal 3 or 4 to a pack and freeze them.  The last batch lasted for over 3 years!  It’s great for chicken on sale, and also you can freeze fresh veggies – par boil for 30 seconds and then freeze.  I love mine!  I’ve probably saved 200 – 300 a year easy!

      • As an experienced Food Saver user, can you help me with something?  I had some BBQ pork from the crockpot that I tried to seal into a bag.  It had tons of room at the top of the bag (well over the 3 inches it recommends).  But a tiny bit of liquid still got vacuumed up and out of the bag which prevented it from sealing right.  What should I have done??  Should I have put the BBQ in the bag, then temporarily put it in the freezer to solidify the sauce before sealing it?  Can you email me at wood . online @ verizon . net (removing the spaces)?  Many thanks!

    • I have never vacuum sealed anything, but this year has been my year of a lot of first times. Started milling grains, making my bread, making my own detergent. Started harvesting. Now I would love to freeze to use in winter.

      I could probably save a ton. I would like to say $300 or more because I general do not buy my meat in bulk anymore because of previous freezer burn. I also would save alot from fresh produce from our family garden. I have so been wanting a Foodsaver for ever it seems.

      I am sure I could save 500 dollars on foods that normally spoil.

    • It is only my son and I to cook for at home. I hate wasting food. The food saver would be great for buying bulk and freezing smaller portions. Also, these smaller portions would freeze longer so no waste due to freezer burn. I am sure the food saver would save us hundreds of dollars a year and I wouldn’t have the guilt with wasting food. I love to freeze vegetables from the garden and fruits that are in season but this is also necessary as a money saver and this would be perfect for that. It would also take up less room in the freezer than the plastic containers I currently use.

    • OH MY… The possibilities with these units would be endless!!! Food Storage and freezing alone would be wonderful! then the marinating, YUMMO!! With a family of 6 we never know if there will be 6 at the table or just two at a time so it would really cut down on wasted food. And preparing food to pack for camping you wouldn’t have to worry about zipper bags leaking.  

      My husband added his excitement would be in being able to oil and then pack up his old family treasured guns. They would then be protected form the oxidation that occurs form storage. 

      I could easily see us saving over $600 a year on groceries and protecting my husbands heirloom guns would be priceless to him. Thinking out of the box there are so many ideas coming to me…. sealing paints so they don’t dry out, paint brushes when you are the middle of a project and picking back up tomorrow, h (hmmmm) i wonder if it would help keep the markers that i got for free at Walgreens keep from drying out while I use them in the stock pile, making home made ice packs that wont leak, could seal candles to keep the scent longer….. WOW it would be so much fun to experiment with all kinds of things!!!

      I could probably save at least $50 per year if I never had to throw out anything due to freezer burn.  I don’t throw out much, but this would be a huge help.

      I am sure that I save $600 a year at least by vacuum sealing meats alone. The space saved in the freezer is priceless, too. I can freeze more and buy more in bulk, too.

    • I am sure I could save hundreds every year by having a food saver! I could by more of the meat specials and not have to worry about FREEZER BURN.  The marinating idea sounds awesome, would love to give that a try!

      I have wanted one of these for so long – ever since I started couponing.  We generally split all our meat packages into smaller portions and freeze them.  This would be so much better!  We also blanch and freeze extra fresh veg from our garden – just started gardening this summer and I LOVE it!  No more overprice peppers at the grocery store!  I think by freezing all my veggies and splitting my meat into usable portions I would potentially save hundreds of dollars.

    • My new husband and I have been wanting this item for awhile.  We buy in bulk, but since it is just the two of use we don’t go through the meat fast enough some times.  This would help prolong our meat usage time.  We use the vacuum bags, but they are pricey.  I would save about $384 a year at least!

      I have been looking at food savers and would love to have this beautiful FoodSaver model.  My freezer is small and things must be stacked.  Sometimes I get freezer burn and have to toss items; such a waste of money.  This would probably save hundreds of dollars every year.

      As an aside just wanted to let you know your hard work in find all the deals for coupons, freebies and give-aways is very much appreciated.  Thanks.

    • Probably at least a few hundred dollars easily, because it would allow us to be able to save our meats.

    • I know this item would save hundreds of dollars. I like to buy in bulk when on sale and freeze smaller portions for later.

    • Betty Crown

      Easily a couple hundred dollars!  I had a much older model for over 8 years and literally wore it out.  These are great for putting leftovers in small packages in the freezer for lunches, meats, dry goods……!  I miss mine so much and would love to have this Cadillac version.  I could go on for hours telling what I used mine for.  I never had to worry about freezer burn either.

      I look at and covet this machine at least once a week.  I need this and want this more than an Ipad.  I am sure I could save hundreds, not sure how many.  I shy away from buying too much meat, afraid of freezer burn. Problem solved with this.

      we have a teeny tiny freezer in our apt and i could use it on everything we have(thats stored in the freezer and more). Im sure our saving could be 500-700 in a year if we could stock up on things right now i cant. Good luck everyone

    • I buy in bulk due to having 2 teenage and a husband who really like to eat.  I end up throwing half of my frozen foods away if my family doesn’t get to them all.  Which is a lot since we are a busy family.  I would say hundreds of dollars would be saved.  Thank you!

      Well let’s see…I have six people on a normal night to feed.  However when my son has friends over or other family members come over..there are alot of people to feed.  So the foodsaver would help me pack meat according to how much I may need on any given night. Meal for 6,10 or one day…2.  It could also help me divide between lunch and dinner…One person doesnt eat pork so I could do individual meat pac.  So I would say the foodsaver could save me alot because I could buy in bulk,freeze only the meat I need for different meals…no waste and no plate full of leftover meat.  And since meat is my most expensive purchase in a month…let’s make that $1200.00/year.

      With the new way of shopping thanks to teachers like yourself I feel that having a foodsaver would allow me to save at least a thousand a year if not more.  I would be able to purcharse more meat (when on sale) and dairy products without the fear of spoiling before my family and I could consume them.  I think now you can even foodsave chips and cereal.  Actually having a foodsaver could allow me to prepare meals in advance and save them on plates or in dishes.  That is very good for working moms like myself.  Thanks for entering me in the amazing contest.

      My brother planted a huge garden this year. We went through hundreds of freezer storage bags. The foodsaver would have been a Godsend. In addition, It looks like I have a lot of freezer burned meat in my freezer. Between the garden vegetables and the spoiled meat, I could probably save a couple of hundred dollars a year.

      Ah. The comment thing is back…

      We buy in bulk and family gardens. Easily at least $200 saved there, annually.
      But that doesn’t account for time savings. I also like to bake in bulk, which saves hours down the road. Then there is the capacity to quick seal mason jars with homemade soup for longer food refrigeration (sort of ‘cool canning’), or simply vacuum pack briefly for a near instant marinade. And it also works great for shipping home-baked goodies to friends and family overseas; sandwich baggies don’t even compare.One of these days…

      My FoodSaver has been broken about 2 years and being out of work have not been able to buy another one. We really saved hundreds of dollars when we did have the FoodSaver. Saving money not having to go to store every other day is another saving. All pennies count when you are not working. FoodSaver is really a money saver.

      I have a large freezer in my garage and would be able to save at least $100 per month buying meat in bulk and freezing.

    • Joshlin Spears

      I’m not sure how much I can save yet, but I bet it would be a lot. I am guessing about $50 a month at lest!

    • I know I could save probably about $600 to $700 a year with this! I hate having to throw meat out just cause we didn’t cook it in time!!! plus it is also great for veggies and fruits… Hope I win!!!!!!!!!!

       FoodSaver is one of the best investments a family can make to help save money. All of  the vegetables from our garden are frozen and still taste as fresh as when they were first picked. Our favorite is whole corn. Pull corn from the stalk, remove a few of the outer husks and remove any undesirables. Then you are ready to vacuum seal and freeze.Weeks or months later remove from freezer bag place in microwave and cook approximately 5 minutes. Thanks FoodSaver my family saves money and eats healthy all year,

    • oh, gracious! Our little back yard garden keeps sprawling year after year and to freeze hundreds of dollars in okra, corn, green beans and peppers would be amazing!  Also, when boneless chicken is ummmm, $1.39/lb and hamburger is $1.59/lb, I will buy many many lbs. of each at a time and freeze them safely!  Steaks-no problems, deer meat-no problem.  Cinnamon rolls-bring it on!  I’d easily say I’d save over $600/year for my family of 5.

    • With only one income, any money we save on food is fabulous.  Making the frozen veggies and meat stretch farther and last longer would save about $600 a year.  However, if I get one then, I could buy more frozen food, which would actually save me more money because I could stock up when the price is LOW.

      It would save me and my family between 100 to 200 a year. And I love the idea of preparing my meat ahead of time. I work full time and this would come in handy.

      This would be a great tool for saving money on our grocery bill. As a single mother, every penny counts! It would be great to stock up on meat when it is on sale, and we are always getting produce from my parents’ garden (this would help us freeze it for later). I think it could save us at least $500 a year.

    • This would save at least $200 a year by buying in bulk and when meat is on sale. It would great to stock the freezer.

      It would save my family a ton of money throughout the year, atleast $200 but probably way more!

      I have an older FoodSaver machine that I love. I have saved so much money with packing the food from my garden. My favorite thing is to buy meat on sell. Before I freeze the meat, I marinade it so it is ready to put on the grill.

      Talk about ironic….I just cleaned out my chest freezer today. I must have thrown away at least $100 worth of food. How different would things have been if I had a Foodsaver V3880 Vacuum Sealer Kit?! Not only would I have had food that wasn’t ruined, but I could also buy meat and veggies in bulk when they are on sale without worrying about them going bad.

      I could save hundreds of dollars a year w/this product. Not just with leftovers but with having the ability to properly freeze more food items.  I could freeze more fresh produce from our small garden as well as buying more items in bulk, confident that they will be sealed.  I REALLY would love one of these…If I won, I would be ecstatic!

      As a mom who works full time, and is a full-time student, being able to prep several nights meals and freeze is a life-saver! I am tired of freezer burn ruining perfectly good dinner plans!!!

    • Would soooo love to have a FoodSaver system! For years, we were a family of 6 but my nest has quickly emptied down to just my husband and I (except when the kids drop in for dinner!) Being so used to buying in bulk, I am still buying family packs and then breaking down into zip lock freezer bags. I have the same problems as everyone else, with freezer burn, not using meat fast enough, etc. So this system would be awesome! And the savings….hundreds$$$ to say the least!

      I would love too receive this!! I have two elderly grandmas (one 85 the other 90) who I always try and freeze some quick meals for. Or something they can just pop in the crock pots so they don’t have to worry about making big meals. I also buy in bulk meats to share with them cause they are both on a fixed budget. Also I have been thinking about going in with another family on buying a cow for meat ( thanks Jenny for the idea at the becoming conf) and this piece of equipment would save me hundreds of dollars and help out multiple family members!! I love ur site it has saved my family so much money and a made it posable for my to share with my extended family who don’t have alot. Thank you!!

      I could really enjoy a food saver and save a lot of money. My mother has been wanting one for a while. She is 84 and has always loved to can a lot of vegetables in the summer. There is a u-pick field close to our home and every summer i take vacation during the first few weeks the field is open. I pick the vegetables and mom helps me prepare them. We can a lot of them, but we also put a lot in the freezer. It is hard work, but she enjoys it so much. we put up way more than we can use, but there is always someone that runs low on funds, and we try to share with them. God blesses us and then we are able to help other people. I can not estimate the amount that we would save, but i spend a lot of money on other freezer bags, and they do not store the food as well. If we had a food saver, we would put it to good use.

If I added the savings from stocking up during sales, I would say that amount would be closer to $500 or $600 per year. Yes, I would LOVE to have one these little gadgets.

      It would save a lot for me because my husband too easily convinces me to eat out too often. I just recently bought a pressure cooker so that I can more quickly produce meals. But if I could have things already prepped in the freezer and reliably stored for a long time, I am going to estimate our yearly savings at $2400. The reason is that we spend more than $300 eating out per month. Making a concerted effort to reduce this number to $100 a month would would save us $2400.

      I’m not sure that I would actually save money as I haven’t had problems with my meat getting freezer burn but I think this system would be more convenient than my current method.  I freeze meat in individual servings in aluminum foil and then additionally package them together in a zip-lock freezer bag.  I slip a card in the bag noting the identity of the meat and date.

      I can’t even begin to calculate how much I would save with a food saver machine, but I know it would be hundereds of dollars each year.  I would seal things like meat & cheese.  We just have the two of us here, so we can’t save on buying the larger packs of meats & cheese that are less expensive per serving.  Thanks for the review & the chance to win.  JIL

      The amount of money that could be saved is amazing…My mother lives in KY and the grocery stores there often offer WHOLE Tbones or RibEyes for $3.99 per pound…here the best price I can find is $5.99…huge difference when you are talking about 25 pounds of beef each.
      We also hunt and fish.  We process our own venison and the food saver would be much easier, quicker and I wouldn’t be afraid that my meat could be freezer burnt.  I don’t know how it would work for the fish because we freeze it in saltwater and I wonder about being able to seal bags of water.
      Then there is the garden, I think the Food Saver would be wonderful for corn, beans greens…just everything that you would want to store and not worry about the yucky freezer burnt taste.
      One question, does the food taste like plastic when you heat it up to serve ~ especially leftovers?

      We just bought a new freezer as ours was giving out after 17 years of service.  I was amazed as I was trying to prepare all of the frozen food we had (quickly) just how much had freezer burn.  My husband has commented twice on the meat tasting a little funny which is no laughing matter!  I finally took the hint and threw out at least 12 pounds of meat items & countless bags of frozen vegetables.  It pained me to do this, and I would estimate that we would probably save at least $400+ a year when I think of all the fresh vegetables & fruits that end up in the trash as well.  I could have sealed & frozen them. Our new fridge set us back $1500, and having a foodsaver would make that investment a little less painful as I am sure it would save us the dreaded “wasted food” cost.  Thank you for the opportunity!

      With my large family of 6, I think we could save atleast $500.  I had a FoodSaver in the past, but mine has been broken for several years after using it for a long time.  I also used it when I made an extra large dinner to freeze some individual portions that my husband could reheat for himself and the kids when I am working a closing shift at work.  It is easy like a frozen dinner, but the nutrition and taste of home cooking.

      I think that with a foodsaver, combined with coupons and specials, I could save another  $1200 a year.  I currently throw away leftovers and believe that with a foodsaver, I could always freeze the leftovers, and eat them in a few weeks, instead of days later.  I could also pre make many meals to reheat later.  Foodsaver would help prevent freezer burn.  I put less in my freezer because of freezer burn.. With a new foodsaver in the house I would use the freezer more, trash less..

      I tried a food saver years ago and was successful until it tore up and I haven’t been able to buy a new one yet – I could really use a new one.  My husband is an avid hunter and fisherman.   If I could had a better way of freezing w/o freezer burn, it would keep it much longer.  I would think it would save $150 a month just in meats and garden items alone.  The savings from leftovers would be tremendous also.  I have 3 teenage boys that also hunt and fish.  They eat alot too.  I think this would help buy some things in bulk with out the worry of it going bad.

    • Hi, I have been throwing away a lot of food.  I have 2 boys 2 and 3 year old that don’t always eat what I cook.  I also have a husband that doesn’t like left overs.  I just threw away 5 containers of food from my refrigerator and at least 3 bags from the freezer.  Frankly, I’m so tired of it that I’m refusing to cook at all.  My husband works 2 jobs so I have to try to make 2 different kinds of meals for him.  I think it will also help my in-laws as well.  My mother in law loves to buy in bulk and we both can benefit from it.  Thanks!

    • I think I could save 1200 dollars by having this food saver!

      My husband travels each and every week. We eat such small meals and usually end up losing the remaining portion of food to the elements. Would love to be able to save and split up my meals UsIng the AWESOME FOODSAVER  Vacuum!!!!!!! The savings could be in the hundreds af dollars and I would love to give you specific numbers IF I HAD ONE : )))))

    • I don’t know how much I would save but I sure would like to see how much…maybe I’ll even document it if they asked me :)

    • I would save a large amount of money with one of these.  I buy in bulk becasue its cheaper and sometimes lose some of my meats from freezer burn.  I even try to remove the air from my freezer bags with a straw, which does work some.  I cant afford to buy on of these so to receive one free would be the greatest.

      We just lost an income because my wife is staying home with our new son.  We’ve been rockin’ the Dave Ramsey baby steps and finally snowballed out way out of debt (not counting the house) and onto a cash only system just before his birth.  Southern Savers has really helped us stretch our ever dwindling budget.  I’ve been checking Craig’s List and eBay for a FoodSaver brand vacuum sealer and have been hesitant to spend the money just yet.  I believe we could conservatively save $400 on our food budget.  I’m hoping to take on some additional side work to pick up enough cash to buy one.  Winning a free one would be such a blessing.

      Thanks for the great site!

      I have wanted a food saver for quite some time now. I have seen many of my friends save massive amounts of money by using theirs not only for food storage but also for practical purposes. I am quite confident that I would be able to save my household well over $1,000.00 anually using the food saver because I live in a typically warm climate in an upstairs unit and have lost quite a lot of money this summer alone because of food spoilage. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity.

      I could save $hundreds, I am sure, because I could take better advantage of buying the super sized family packs of meats when they go on sale. I would use the Food Saver to quickly break down those huge packages into meal-sized bags for the freezer.  Also, this kind of seal would last longer in the freezer than the usual way I wrap frozen foods!

      I have wanted a Food Saver for a long time, but recently find that it is a need more than a want.  Between having to save money and still prepare reasonably healthy food for someone who’s job takes them away from home all week, and caring for an elderly father with medical problems (who changes what he will eat from day to day with no notice) I could probably save 40% on my grocery expenses.  Having to purchase individual size servings are more than twice as much as buying in normal or bulk size.  The food that gets wasted because Dad has changed his mind could be frozen until he wants it, if I could keep it from get getting dry and freezer burnt.  Then there is the seasonal food I freeze every year (that does not stay sealed tight no matter how much air I remove when closing it), and of course, the meat bought on sale that becomes unrecognizeable and does not make it to the table.  I do not know how the winner is picked but I am sure hoping and praying it is me this time!!!  It would be the first time I have won anything.

      I have been a client for years.  We are on our second one.  There is no better way to save your family money that with a food saver.  I have recommended them to several of my friends and they have purchased them for their family.  I buy family packs of meat and vaccum seal them into the portions that I need for later use.  I cried when my first one died. It has also been great for putting up the summer garden.

I buy discount produce that is on sale because it is on the verge of being “too ripe, cut it up and freeze it, I also do this with herbs and cheeses I buy the bricks when there are coupons and shred and slice it myself and freeze it. This will also work great for pancakes and waffles that I pre make and freeze (cheaper to use mix and do this then buy frozen). Hubby and the kids go fishing alot too so this will help us be able to save what they catch better.

    • I have to say we love the FoodSaver brand! I know for a fact that I could save hundreds if not thousands of dollars a year because we would vacuum seal a huge portion of the produce from our farm, as well as fish, and wild game my husband hunts. I almost never buy meat from a store, unless there is just an extremely good deal.

      I think I can expect to save at least $2,000 with this product over the span of a year.  My eldest son has just left for college and doesn’t have a meal plan.  I sent him with a mini freezer loaded with meals I made but used containers.  Just using the foodsaver for this purpose would be a snap as I could load the freezer with even more meals!  And that is not including the use I would get for the rest of the family.
