    My original vac sealer was a Nutri-Chef which bit the dust about 2 months ago when it developed a rough spot on the sealing bar causing it to seal incompletely. My replacement is the Food Saver brand I got at Costco. So far, so good..

    I’m a little late to all the vacuum sealer discussions going around lately, but that’s what inspired me to get one. Thanks a lot people…😡 I’m beginning to believe if I hang out here much longer I will die penniless. I’ve got an old Food Saver brand I quit using several years ago for whatever reasons. I’ve had 2 different ones

    Up until August 2017 I had a Food Saver Vacuum Sealer that lasted well over 10 years. Then I vac sealed a bag of corn cut off the cob and drowned the innerworkings by mistake. So I

    A Tale of Three Suckers

    P. T. Barnum said there was one born every minute but not all suckers are equal. I'm talking about the small, hand-held vacuum sealers for sous-vide or storage bags. I've bought three of them in the last two years.

    After about 18 months of use, this first one cracked at the base where the sealer meets the bag valve and so quit drawing a vacuum.

    I just bought this version 3.0 and it feels as though it will be my last for a few years.

    I bought them all on Amazon. The first two came in a kit with several dozen SV bags and were in the $20 price range. I don't recall the brands. They are made exclusively from plastic. The last one is a Vesta brand which came with just a few SV or storage bags and was $28. It has a metal exterior housing and feels quite substantial. They all recharge using a mini USB connection.

    If you're in the market for one of theses little sealers, just skip right to the Vesta and be done with it.
