I've had a food saver for about 10 years !! I use it - 3 or 4 times a day at least ! When my original one broke after 10 years , I knew I needed a new one and quick ! I didn't need all the bells and whistles but I knew a food saver brand would only due. I saw this model, Looked good except for the fact that it only comes in black. and purchased it. I love it. The only thing is the color. I wish you made them in some cool colors ! Red, Orange, Blue, be imaginative !! At least white. Oh, Well , It works great and the price is good !! I'm hoping it lasts as long as my first one !!!

I got mine as a gift for Christmas this year - not sure when it was actually purchased for me, though. Hoping it isn't past the point of being able to return it! I fired it up, and it worked wonderfully - ONCE. I let it sit for 20 minutes while I prepared the next items. When I closed it all up and latched it down to commence the second bag ever, nothing happened. No lights, no power, etc. :( I have checked and flipped all of the gaskets, pushed down on the lid to see if it just wasn't registering that it was closed, checked for any other visual issues - no go. All day, I have taken it back out, and tried again, thinking it must have been a fluke - no power. Tried different outlets in my home, nothing. Is there a fuse? Contacting customer service for replacement. :( Will update my review (if possible) after the issue is resolved! My product ratings are only valid if I get a working unit! I IMAGINE that it will be wonderful when it works! :)

Perfect first time food saver!

I am so happy with my purchase. It's perfect for a first time users and single family household. I have even purchased the food saver containers to use and I'm happy with those as well.


Own V2220 and using for over 7 years

By Tina M

from PA, United States

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

I own the V2220 for over 7 years and I use it at least once a day, everyday (when I am home, of course). I seal everything. I seal cold cuts, bread, half cut onions. I don't bake often so I like to keep my baking soda and powder fresh. I place a portion pack bag over the baking powder can and seal it in the can. Cheese lasts forever when it's sealed. To avoid freezer burn, I seal shrimp right in the bag, as well as frozen vegetables. I have bags of sealed fresh basil in my freezer. I seal cereal in their own bags for only a few seconds since the bag is thin. I do the same for chips, etc. When I seal something with a sharp bone (steak, pork chop) I place bunched up plastic wrap around the pointed edge of the bone before I seal it. I have had no problems with my machine. It works great except that recently I didn't disengage the latch, i jammed it. The latch moves down but doesn't catch, so now I need to push the latch down, push down on the lid, get the green light and then seal. This is no fault of the machine. I'm to blame. I may be getting a new similar model. I like the V2220's design, it's easy for me to use. I may get the 2244, it's a similar model. Five people I know have bought a Foodsaver because of the ease of use and observing how easy mine works. Some people say the 2244 won't seal. As a veteran Foodsaver owner, I have some pointers. 1) Make sure the bag is cut straight across. If it is jagged or has creases, the unit will not be able to suck out the air properly. The creases can be flattened when the bag is in the sealer, but the bag has to be cut straight across. 2) Make sure the bag is in far enough for it to seal. 3) If I have a heavy item to be sealed (meat, poultry, etc.) I place a trivet or 1 inch book under my item to be sealed. This allows the bag to be level with the unit. I found it helps with sealing.


Won't Last! Don't buy it!

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

I bought this because I cook a lot in bulk and freeze items for my husband's lunch, as well as freeze large quantities of venison and garden vegetables. It worked great for a few months but suddenly will only draw a VERY weak vacuum. I have tried everything that's in the manual to get it working but it won't Now I am stuck with several boxes of the bags. So disappointed in the quality of this machine!


Over all great product for beginners

By Rhylla79

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

We buy meat in bulk and break it down. This product has made that process so much easier. It helped us zip through 100 lbs of meat in no time! We had a minor issue with the chicken not sealing properly (due to the large size of the meat) but once we realized it we did a vacuum seal, then waited, and did another seal. Works wonderfully and a great start product for someone who isn't sure if they want to do this.

Only lasted a for about 5 uses

By kjshark

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

I only used it about 5 different times before it failed to vacuum and seal. It will vacuum air out but won't trigger the sealer. I tried replacing the seals but no luck.


I love the size of the machine.

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

Great value for a great machine. I have 3 other Food Savers and I wasn't able to keep them out for easy use due to the size. When I saw this one I not only bought one for myself but also bought one for my mom. We both give 5 stars. I am now ordering one for a wedding gift.


Well worth having....

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

I've has this food-saver quite awhile and it has served me fine. I only wanted to get an upgrade this time because I love saving money by not throwing away so much food. And I just felt like getting s new one for my hubby because he's the one who mostly wraps everything for me. So Santa decided to order a stand-up model for him this year. And a few extras too !! I expanded our ownership of food-saver products this year. I'm a happy gal. And he's a happy guy !!!


Easy to use

By LindaB

from Gastonia NC

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

This FoodSaver is great and so easy to use! fast and efficient with a good seal. no issues at all and the removable drip tray is handy for easy cleaning. Very convenient for bulk purchases that I want to package into smaller serving sized and look forward to using it for produce from the garden.


FS should reevaluate this particular machine

By Genine

from Lufkin, TX

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

Yes, I've read the manual, even numerous reviews. Had to replace the seal gaskets. It still won't vacuum properly UNLESS I place my hand on the middle of the top and apply slight pressure. Heat seals can be "hit and miss" at times, so I have to really look at them. The jar sealer is tricky and I've had success with that(haven't used it much) but I can say that it takes practice. For making your initial heat seams, DO let the machine cool down in between cycles and make sure to have the printed side of the bag is facing UP. Frustrating, I know. To be honest, I would recommend a higher quality machine. I've owned mine for 3 yrs now.

Easy to use, space saving size

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

I used this with strawberries I had individually quick frozen. The "stop" feature was helpful so I could stop the process before the berries were crushed. The machine was very easy to learn to use. This was my first use of the machine.


Lasted about 3 uses then stopped vacuuming

By craig22v

from Dallas TX

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

We had good success with the prior model, which lasted a few years before needing to be replaced. I purchased the V2244 for my wife as a present and it worked great the first few times she used it, however after that, it would seal, but will no longer vacuum. Disappointed.


Snacks in jars are good!

By tishpoo

from Columbus,OH

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

I am very happy with this vacuum sealer. I use it mostly for sealing jars and resealing snack bags. It is easy to use and takes up very little space on the counter. I had originally ordered a model that was completely automatic but after a helpful phone call with Food Saver customer service, I was able to actually receive the model I really wanted. Overall, a great online shopping experience.

Too new to rate but so far does what it says. I don't understand why the heat seal feature kicks in when using the attachments to seal containers....huh?

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

Love this product. Bought it to help me save room in my freezer since I only have a standard apartment size freezer and I buy meat to last up to 2 months at a time. Also, to help keep my meat from getting so freezer burnt. Very simple to use.


Great Product

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

The food saver is just what I have been looking for. Great way to store meats bought in larger quantities. Looking forward to preserving vegetables from the garden this year also. Love the convenience of making your own storage bags to fit your need.


a must have

I use my vacuum sealer every day. I love it. It's so easy to use. I ordered the regular jar sealer and I can't wait to try it out.

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

Love my Foodsaver! Easy to use and keeps everything fresh! The only slight down fall is the noise when it sucks the air out. But it works wonders!!


Money well spent

By Bidcrushr

from Long Island, NY

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

This little machine is great, its light weight and compact. Easy to store away when not in use. Works as described and food stays noticeably fresher. I used it to seperate french fries that i buy in bulk into smaller portions for easy storage and quck ready to cook portions. I also used it for meat storage that I also buy in bulk, and weeks later the the pork chops are still nice n pink in their air tight packages. Glad I bought this, no regrets, easy to clean. I definitely recommend this.


Very Happy with my Food Saver

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

I have the small compact one and it is perfect for my needs. Baked chicken kept in the frig for almost 2 weeks. It was delicious. Normally I would have thrown it out. You have to make sure your bag is long enough for the food you are sealing..and it works great!


Great Quality

By Bill72

from N.W. Ohio

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

This is a great little unit. It will fit on your counter top with no trouble. I use ours on the kitchen table for more room. This is our 2nd. Vacuum Sealer. The 1st one was the 2400 Food Saver. Both have the same locking handle style. All that is needed for easy locking is to press down slightly on the top with your left hand, at the same time as you lock the handle in place. I also press down slightly on the top when I release the handle. I place two cutting boards in front of ours, that measure an inch thick total. This puts your bags closer to the same high as the seal strip. It makes it easier to get a good seal on your bags. It comes with a peace of cardboard in the Drip Tray. Leave this in when not in use. It will help the seals to last longer. The 2200 does a great job at a small price. Hope this helps.


Just what I needed

By Chickie24

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about Foodsaver Vacuum Food Sealer (FM2000-000):

I used to have a product very similar to this about 30 years ago. This remindes me of the same product which I loved. I like to be able to portion food, freeze it, and not have freezer burn. I also like the ability to stack flat so many packages in the freezer by using the product. The way we are instructed to place the bag inside the tray so it will vacuum wastes 3 inches of the bag. If I can figure out how to cut down on using so much of the bag, I would give it 5 stars.
