Summary: Looked everywhere and couldn't find this model! I wanted this very one with this specific design. Had it for 3 months now & it works GREAT! I don't understand why Foodsaver quit making it without a replacement???
Summary: I have had several Foodsavers. They usually only last a couple years and don't work so I buy a new one because I love them when they work!!! The V2860 is the worst of the worst! It only works for about 3 or 4 bags then you have to wait for the sealer to cool down. I too called the customer service and was told I could have a $20.00 discount toward a new one. I am looking for a different company with more reliable machines and cheaper bags!
Summary: We love our FoodSaver! But first a comment about the currently featured price of the device. It's nearly $300, and that's outrageous. It's also not the "new top-of-the-line FoodSaver system" claimed by that same over-priced merchant. You can pay half of that (or less) at various places and save on shipping. What really "sealed" the deal (pun intended) was when we also purchased the jar attachments.
Summary: I have had it for a while. Since the second time I used it, it only works about 60% of the time from. The other 40% of the time it doesn't create a vacuum, so it's completely useless. Don't buy it, it will drive you crazy.
Summary: I love this foodsaver, super easy to use. I taught my 9 year old how to use it. I've saved a bit on veggies, I cook extra each meal and freeze left-overs after sealing them. I've sealed cereal bags, chip bags, candy bags etc.... I've only had one of those not seal properly as the bag was too wrinkled. Absolutly worth the money paid.
