FoodSaver all the way, I am on my 4th one in 25 years. I vac bag a lot, been blanching and freezing a lot of garden veg the last month. Freeze bread on a tray then vac bag it to keep it from freezer burning. I buy 2 pound blocks of white cheddar, cut it in thirds and vac bag and freeze 2 pieces. Stocks I either pressure can or I freeze in mason jars. Can get cheaper bags at Goodmans.
