Looking to buy a food/game saver. Happen to have a gift certificat from BassPro but will buy from anywhere. Looking for a good recommendation. Anyone really happy with their brand/model? Thanks.

  • I got mine at Bass Pro-game saver plus. Works pretty good, the seal is not as strong as I thought it would be-as I wound up boiling 3 lbs of bbq instead of just warming it up in the hot water :blink: Think i paid around $175- would recomend :)
  • Is it fairly easy to use? Thanks.
  • Got one last weekend from Sams club. Foodsaver brand. Worked well on steak. I has a marinating attachment to speed up marinating.
  • I keep seeing the foodsaver brand everywhere I look. Thanks.

    I have THIS one from Bed, Bath & Beyond. At the top of the page go to Email Sign up and sign up for email and direct mail coupons. They do not send out a lot of junk mail and the coupons are worth getting. When you sign up they will almost instantly send you an email "get a 20% off one item in-store Savings Certificate". I used it on the FoodSaver. The snail mail coupons often have the same "20% off one item in-store" deal. I like my FoodSaver and use it to store all my meats in the freezer, it does a great job. Sometimes it can be little temper mental about drawing the vacuum but that could be me. One of our members, Richard I think and apologize if wrong, recommends getting bag material from THIS SITE. I have not tried it yet but have had it bookmarked for a long time. The prices look great. I like the rolls of material and make my own bags to size. Very easy. :)

    I bought a Foodsaver brand from Costco. Had a coupon for $30 off. It's a better/bigger and cheaper than comparable Wal*Mart Foodsaver models. I think I paid $129 total. It's awesome.

    I'll second the food saver model. Have had ours for probably 10 years. Always use the rolls and cut to size. Saves money and does a great job. We season the steaks before freezing them. You will find that you take advantage of good sales more often. Cheap chicken, etc.

  • Thanks for the link
  • Saving money with buying in bulk is one big reason I am in the market for one plus want to preserve my wild game from hunting seasons longer in the freezer
  • go to food savers site and enter you email address for promos and such, about a week later you will receive 80% off link. I bought this one shipping and all for $80

    I got mine here a couple of years ago after going through a couple of foodsaver types. Probably overkill, but it works great. Bags and rolls are cheaper than foodsaver brand and very good quality. Cabela's sells the same unit for $50 more.
