I got into Foodsaver for awhile, then got out of Foodsaver and all that "stuff" to go along with it (that marinating dish for one). It added up over time. The seal on the lid eventually stopped keeping the vacuum.
Kayelle, at $49.00, the FizGiz would be a luxury gadget thingy for me. I dunno tho. With my $19 Handy-Vac for doing all other shrink wrapping, I may consider it worthwhile to buy one, considering the hundred$ I've spent on Foodsavers and extras.
Also, lately I've been pouring away a lot of soda in those large plastic bottles because it goes flat way too soon.
