A few years back I had a Food Saver, which I loved but never used. I decided I wanted some use gotten out of it, so I gave it to my mom. Well, Ma thought I would need one of these then and bought it for us. I must say, I love it! It's so easy and convenient. The best part about it, it doesn't take up counter space!! If you are looking for a way to freeze foods without them getting freezer burn, go ahead and buy one of these! I know it works for me!
