I bought a Food Saver vacuum sealer a couple of months ago and have tried it out since. I do not like it. It always seems that the food is too wet to seal. Fresh corn, green beans, etc. It will not seal if the food is wet. I even place paper towels in it to absorb the moisture. I am bringing this one back. I would like to know if all sealers are like this. Which ones do you recommed? My husband says it is just not worth it. You can place them in zip-lock bags and suck the air out with a straw in a lot less time and trouble. Zip-lock bags are cheaper too. What is everyone's opinion on this? Thanks!

I bought one and have only used it for meats so far. Was thinking I'd use it for fruit and veggies this summer.. but it seems like buying the bags for it can get expensive. I don't know if it's worth it!! Like you said, there would be other ways to do it...and cheaper too. Would be interested in hearing from someone who has used theirs a lot.

I love mine. I do meat and dried goods in mine though. I did do some corn on the cob this past week-end and it worked fine. Not sure why your's isn't working.

Marie, I like the fact that you can make the bags the size you need them. I've also re-used some of the bags.

I have one and you can draw in the dust on the top. I used it and it did not seal right. Took it back got another one and the same thing. It will not seal veggies right. I have a friend that uses ziploc bags to seal her stuff. (namebrand only bags) and was reading on a food forum that it speds up the rotting process on fresh veggies to some degree. I am going to test that theroy for my self if I can get it to seal right.
