I've used a FoodSaver for maybe five years and am quite pleased. I shopped the web and eBay and god a pretty good deal on it. Discounters like Bed Bath, Linens n' and Kohls would be a good bet. Replacement bag-rolls are pricey, but that's their profit center; just like Gillette- cheap razorz, expensive blades. Or printers- cheap printers, expensive ink.I read somewhere that the manufacturers get about $3,000 per gallon for the ink! :eek:
It's especially nice if we find an unusual item of food- we can load up and freeze a bunch without worrying about freezer burn.
