    After burning through my third vacuum sealer in 8 years I am in the market for a new one. I am looking for any recommendations. Please help!

    Foodsavers are what I have been burning through. I was hoping to find something else this time. I will miss the jar sealing!

    Hi Mrs Moon!

    The threads noted previously are all good sources.
    I'm so sorry to hear that the FoodSavers are dying on you. IMHO that is the best brand on the market. I've owned two myself. The first one was the very first model and I gave it away, still in great condition, when DH and DS gave me a newer model about 5 or so years later. I've been using the second one now since about 2005.

    Normally I would say that I'm pretty hard on my appliances, and this one gets a lot of use, but it sounds like you really put them to the test.
    I'm curious about how much and for what do you use them. Not in a judgmental way; just to get an idea of the FoodSaver's max usage, and then maybe figure out what might be a better option for you in the future. icon_smile.gif

    Other than a Professional model that is used in restaurants and meat packing plants, you really aren't going to get much better than FoodSaver. Are you just buying the cheaper FS, I burned my first one out in 2 years, but then I was sealing corn on the cob with it, 15 dozen in bags of 5. I went with another cheaper one that has lasted the past 3-4 years. FoodSaver has one on their website called the Game Saver, which is for people sealing large amounts of meat after hunting. They boasted that it didn't need the 20 seconds between uses. When packing large amounts I give more than 20 seconds after a bit so the appliance has more time to cool, since I realized I had burnt out the sealing wire when I was doing the corn, plus the amount of water I was sucking out of them.

    FoodSaver Outdoor listed at $229.99

    FoodSaver Game Saver listed at $229.99

    Vac Master Pro90, listed at $159, doesn't have accessory port, like a FS

    Vac Master VP-112 listed at $599.99, a chamber vacuum sealer, no accessory port but can seal liquids
