    I picked up a new Foodsaver at Linens and Things going out of business sale I got the stainless steel model for $160 +/-. Can't wait to use it this weekend.

    Where is the best place or website to get bulk rolls for it?

    I saw a bunch on e-bay, but I am not sure if they will fit the Foodsaver 11" x 50'

    Very exciting!! I got one not so long ago - the one that you can stand up to store.....

    Not sure where you can buy bags or the rolls in bulk.

    I just got a FoodSaver too in anticipation of the immenant demise of my Freedom Rangers!

    I didn't get the stainless one, I got the one that comes with the canister set.

    I've heard that it's not worth it to use the cheap knock-off bags. My Aunt picked up a big value pack of bags for it at Costco. I don't live close enough to one to maintain a membership, but a Sam's or Costco might be a good place to look.

    Quote:That is the same one that I got. I hope to bag some chickens tomorrow. I have to put up a pen for my pigs first.

    GOOD CHOICE! [​IMG] Its so easy to use, I taught my kids to use it.... I packed EVERYTHING I could find first few days [​IMG]

    It will seal cereal bags, chip bags, all kinds - it can't vaccum those - but just sealing them is good enough for me.
