Hang in there Robyn.  We have just finished the winter term and are now on holidays down here in Tassie. We are off to the Sunshine Coast (QLD) for a week from next Saturday.  I hope it stops raining up there!!! We have beautiful sunshine here in Tassie at the moment.  ;D

Thanks for your advice Dot.I was attracted by the 50% off but because you have one and use it regularly I would definitely upgrade to the model that you recommend.

I have decided to upgrade regardless of it not being white. I have ordered mine today (I noted that there is no delivery charge which has to be an added attraction) I shall put my older model on Ebay for about 20. I just thought that I would tell you in case you want to hear my opinion on the new one. I feel confident that I will find it as good as the older model (even better with the added features that improve it) I certainly hope so anyway 'cos it's a bit extrav' of me to get rid of a perfectly good one.

Received my vacuum sealing machine today - I haven't got anything I want sealed at the moment so will just read up on it until I'm ready to use it.  Not too bulky so easy to store.

Ok, been reading the thread.

Confused ??? ??? ???

Is the idea of the vacum sealer to prolong the life of food in the freezer?  Or is it just to save space?

Thanks

I have just vacuum sealed my first item and I had to show you a picture  :-))  So much quicker than I thought, you don't even have to heat the machine. I'm very pleased with it, thanks Amanda.
