I just recently upgraded to the model that GB speaks of. I love it and I have had a FoodSaver in my home for 8 or 9 years now, I could not imagine life without one! One of the best kitchen gadgets I have ever purchased!

Not sure about tomato, maybe try it out in the canister if you have them, but I don't think they would fair well in the bags.

Hi Momcooks,
Where do you get the 2 qt jars?
Do they use the regular wide mouth lids?

Some people on the Yahoo Food Saver Forum said they buy the 1 gal jars of pickles, seal the pickles in packages, and use the jar for other large volumn items.

I get a lot of my frozen veggies from Schwan's home delivery. They are in zip lock bags that I can never reseal. The use regular Food Saver bags for sealing the unused potrtion would be too costly.
I'm about ready to try freezing a canister.

BTW if you get a canister with a crack in it, try sealing it with the clear plastic packing tape.
I have one that the bottom got spider web cracking. I taped it and have been using it for brown sugar for over 3 months.

TIA,
Charlie

If you are going to use the tomatoes for cooking I would say "No problem" vacuuming and freezing them.

However, I doubt it the tomatoes would work on a BLT Sandwich!

When I have a question on what I can freeze I will check the frozen foods at the supermarket. I know a lot of the foods at the S-Market are flash frozen before they are packed. Still, you can get an idea if they will freeze for you or not.
