I've been thinking about buying a food sealer for ages. Do you think they are worth it? Are there others other than the Sunbeam that people have used and could comment on?

We have a Sunbeam and have had it for years. Like Marie, the only problems have been operator error.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

A HUGE THANK YOU

Vacum sealed the meat for our 2 week trip. It filled 1 1/2 cooler bags. It now fills just less than one.

Also done a fair meat of the meat, have space in my freezer again, now what can I put in it?

I love my vacuum sealer.  Have had it for about 20 years.  Last week I bought Eye fillet.  Cost $50.  I trimmed it and cut it into serves.  Got 7 meals for2 people. That is $ 3.50 a serve. The vacuum sealing keeps the meat in good condition without freezer burn.

Hally, you are puting the end too far into the channel.  It does not go into the channel for just sealing.  The end must sit on the sealing strip to seal.  Leave your finger on the button until the light stops.

Hally, I think Cookie mentioned about freezing liquid items first, otherwise it will suck up the liquid into the machine.  I sometimes wrap items in gladwrap before placing in bag to seal as well.  Hope this helps

If it doesn't work Hally do as Marie suggested. Put it into plastic bag first, that should stop it sucking up the marinade and not sealing.
