Who has a foodsaver? Is it worth it? Do you like it?

Oohh!! I am curious too! I would love to be able to freeze some of the excess veggies from our garden and the occasional meat as well!

I love mine, but I use the cheaper bags I get at Fleet Farm, They are actually heavier than foodsaver bags, the only thing you need to watch is make sure the top of the bag is dry were you seal it

I hate canning, and I hate the freezer burn that happens with freezing in bags. From what I gather, the foodsaver keeps the food from getting freezer burn.

I am interested in getting one as well.

I would add the questions:

1) Where did you find the best deal on both the Foodsaver and the bags?

2) Which model did you get?

YES! Foodsavers are amazing! Basically, whenever you cook something like meat balls, you make a bunch and put them throught the saver! THen you have easy delicious food whenever. All you have to do is boil them! Also, if you go camping, it's great for that too. My grandfather and his friends used to go hunting in the Blue Mountains, and they would take foodsaver food-like steaks, spaghetti and meatballs, you name it! And omelets come out amazingly fluffy, even with storebought eggs. You break out the eggs, mix them up with whatever you want in the omelets, freeze them(the foodsaver sucks out liquid, so anything with juice has to be frozen first) then food saver them, and boil them when you're ready. One thing you can't do it with is bread. It sucks all of the air out, leaving you with something that often resembles a hockey puck.
Wow, I sound like a commercial don't I!
