    What is the accessory hose compatible with?
    Ronald N on Jul 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: As I understand it, the hose is pretty standard and can be used to seal mason jars, and other purposes. I think you'd have buy a jar lid for that though.

    How many seals before you have to let it cool down?
    Todd B on Aug 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Isn’t 5 minutes a long time when you might have to vacuum save three or four packages from a large value pack purchase?
    How easy is it to THOROUGHLY clean the seal portion and anything inside in the event of an accidental overdraw of liquid? (You know exactly what I am talking about once you have experienced this).
    Brian Z on Sep 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use a damp cloth for the everyday cleaning after use, but I would imagine that a routine, thorough cleaning will be a little more involved. As have not as yet used it that much to do that first thorough cleaning, but being mechanically inclined, I do no t see it being that difficult.
    Can this vacuum saver be use to seal items with a liquid marinade or sauce? How does -.8 bars vacuum compare to the vacuum of other machines such as the Food Saver?
    Melvyn M on Nov 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It works great for items in a marinade. I’ve never used another brand.
    How long can the food last?
    A shopper on Aug 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It should last longer that simply storing in a zip-lock bag in your refrigerator. You are removing as much air as possible reducing the risk of bacteria growth which is what spoils food in the first place. If you go even further by freezing it, then that is an additional step in retarding bacteria growth.
    where can I purchase a canister for marinade?
    jules m on May 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: you can get one at your local grocery store.

    I have only used it a few times so far, but it does the job. It has easy to understand and use controls. It came with a roll of vacuum sealer bags and a handful of precut/sealed on one side bags. It also came with a hose for sealing containers.

    It sucks and seals yo
    It does what it is supposed to. It vacuums air out and seals the bags. It is relatively cheap. My only complaint is that the rolls of bags that I purchased later of that one website named after a big river did not fit inside the top to be easily dispensed and cut. No big deal, I have scissors and a willingness to use them.

    One tip, if you are using this for Sous Vide and you are putting anything moderately wet in the bag then use the gentle moist mode. In this mode the vacuum is less aggressive so moisture is less likely to end up in the area that needs to be sealed. When in doubt seal it twice.

    excellent value for the money
    Paid $79 - have sealed a number of bags for both freezer and suos vide cooking and all have been perfect, though it took 2 tries to get a good vacuum on one of them. Used with marinade in one bag and it worked fairly well.

    Would buy again
    I bought this when I bought my sous vide cooker. It works great and vacuum seals well every time. The only downside is that it's quite large, but you won't find anything smaller at this price. I would buy it again.

    Great value!
    I use this vacuum sealer for soups vide cooking as well as freezing food. It does a great job. Keeps frozen food fresh and avoids freezer burn. Combined with the strata souls vide machine, it has opened a new world of cooking possibilities.

    BTW I discovered that if I cut the bag a bit long for the freezer, I can cut it open, remove one item, the re-seal the bag, thus preserving the remaining portions.

    Solid vacuum sealer
    Simple but effective. Some instruction on how to use it would be helpful.

    Cost Effective Product
    We prepare meals in advance and quickly run out of storage containers. This vacuum sealer is a cost effective method of keeping meals prepared in advance. These storage bags take up less space in the freezer than the plastic storage containers and the vacuum process allows a longer storage period. It had never occurred to us that vacuum sealing improves the marinating process, but it makes sense that removing the air will facilitate the marinade juices to penetrate the food and do it quicker than the usual overnight process.

    Nice machine - packaging could be better
    The vacuum sealer itself is great - works very well. The packaging left something to be desired - it almost seemed like it was a refurbished machine the way it was boxed up.

    Solid. Especially for the price.
    This is my first vacuum food sealer - don't have much to compare it to. 1 week in and it works well. My biggest complaint is that I wish I could seal more than one bag in a 5 minute period. After talking with friends, I've heard that's a common complaint with a lot of the vacuum sealers unless you buy something super high end. Fix that issue, and I'll give you the 5th star. Seriously though, for the price this is an awesome unit. I highly recommend purchasing pre-made bags. This saves a lot of time.

    Takes a little practice put the bag in the vacuuming/sealing slot correctly, but after that it works like a charm. It kinda stinks that the instructions say to wait five minutes between seal actions.
