Good appliance that helps you be able to seal your food making it last longer and saving you money. A must have for freezing meat , cheese ,or anything else you want to keep fresh. The pros are that this machine has several nice functions. First , there is a setting for wet items which is helpful and leads to a better seal. The bags are stored right in the machine. You just roll some out depending on the size you need, cut it and then seal it creating a custom sized bag. There is also a pull out hose you can use to seal up the food saver containers that are available to purchase. I love the look of the sterling silver and black buttons. It is tall and slim so it does not take up to much room. As far as the cons, it is a little noisy, but that does not bother me much. I don't like the costs of the bags that go with the machine. They are expensive, but they do come on sale, and when they do I stock up. If you do seal something really wet, it can get gunk in the sealer. You can fix this by cleaning it out, but it was a little challenging to figure out how to do this. Overall though I like the machine. It is a good quality. It has saved us a lot of money allowing us to separate our meats into smaller portions. You can store frozen things for a long time without any freezer burn. Makes cheese last forever too!
