I bought a FoodSaver and I'm thrilled!!

w00t w00t!! *doing my happy dance* I'm so excited! I've been wanting a FoodSaver for some time now, being a single mom it just seems to be such a grand resource! Well, I happened to be up and around this morning and at 6am there was a FoodSaver infomercial on FoodNetwork (my favorite channel!) with the offer of 3 payment installments along with some free canisters and bags and $100 worth of coupons for canisters and bags!! I felt it was fate!! I had to have it, so I placed the order!

I'm soo excited! I can't wait for it to arrive. I never knew Foodsaver had infomercials before. It was awesome!!!! I can barely wait for it to arrive. The deals I can take advantage of as far as meat and fruit. I can seal my sauces and breads that I make. I AM SO EXCITED...just in case you couldn't tell.

Oh, I forgot to tell you. I got the upright one, the V3840. I've already cleared a space on the counter for it...right next to Miss Moxie!

Out of all the TV add purchases I have ever made, (and there are not many), the FoodSaver is by far one of the best purchases I have ever made. It is a highly used appliance in my kitchen and I'm certain you will enjoy yours.

If you have questions... just ask, there are several of us that own one.

Thanks so much Sattie!! I've read such great things about them and I'm sure this will be an invaluable tool in our home! I already know that I'm going to use it everyday, the possibilities are endless. I am definitely stocking up on the canisters, I know that!

Thanks so much!!! Yea, I was looking online and those canisters, indeed, seem to be the route to take. Can't wait to see those coupons!

I caught an infomercial the other morning on the upright FS, too.
You'll enjoy it. Foodsavers are great.

I'm going to be a vacuum sealing fool!!! I really think it's going to help me save money with our grocery shopping. When he kept saying "cash in the trash" as he dumped moldy or freezer burned food I thought, "I do that EVERY week!" But no more!

And I'm really hoping that I'll be able to seal food and send it to my best friend who will be leaving for Iraq for his third tour in a few weeks.

Yes, they are; I've had mine for two years and it really works the way they say it does. Wonder what I ever did without it...

I said the same thing about my Moxie (my KA mixer) and I suspect I'll be saying it again when my FS arrives! I'll be sure to keep you all posted!

You bought the best brand on the market and you're going to love using it. Like everyone else, I pay a lot of money for good quality meat, fish and poultry and I'll be darned if I'll just throw it in the freezer and let it get freezer burn and dry out. Your FS will protect anything you put in the bags for months on end. Good luck.
