Great for home use
Purchased this in Sep '19, and was really happy with it's ease of use and great functionality. Although after about 6-8 months we had issues with it and it would start to take a while to extract all the air and/or not seal at all. Thankfully it was under warranty and I was able to get a brand new one in its replacement and haven't had issues since. We mostly use ours for freezing meats and it makes for an easy defrost, and the most I've sealed in one session is about 15 medium/large sized bags with meat perfectly fine. We use generic/unbranded ...seal rolls and haven't had an issue. I would note that it will only seal really nicely if the plastic is flush against the heat seal (not sure if commercial sealers can deal with this). It's obviously not a commercial product where the air extraction is really strong but does the job well for home use.

Such a great investment! Sad I didn't get it sooner!
My partner and I were in search for one and decided on this one after reading reviews. This was our first food sealer and could not be happier with our decision! It's super easy to use and doesn't take up a lot of space (even love the self store cord space so - no dangly-bits of cord when put away). We've used this for both cupboard + freezer storing and couldn't fault it. Food comes out fresh, seals haven't broken and easily re-seals. One thing I wasn't sure about and found hard sourcing was the seal rolls/bags. I couldn't find the same brand ...but opted to try a department store own brand roll and works just as well for more than half the price of other rolls. When sealing it is a little louder than expected on the turbo option but it doesn't really phase us. Totally recommend this product otherwise!
Purchased in June 2019 at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $118.00.
Questions & Answers
Does anyone know if the reusable Sunbeam FoodSaver bags will work with this machine please? thanks
Hi there, I'm thinking of getting this food sealer and was wondering if it had a built-roll holder or cutter? I know I sound like a first-world problem diva, but it would be so nice to have a cutter that cuts the bag in a straight line because I know my bags will all be weird shapes if I have to do that manually.
Having said that, it really seems to be a good machine and the price is really attractive compared to some other brands. Thanks very much
No roll holder or cutter unfortunately but it is a great machine for the price! Very easy to use
Anyone had problems with the cannisters and the lids not keeping a seal for more that an hour or so
