Food Saver crashed. Probably our 4th in the last 10 years. We use it a lot. What you got for me?  One caveat, we downsized from 8000 sq ft to 2500 a year ago so space is at a premium. Would love to have a commercial unit but don't have the room.

    Vacmaster. My Foodsaver took a shi! and I cashed in some points on a Vacmaster 210. It does a great job and is heavy duty.

    Did you say you went 8000 feet to 2500 feet?

    Food saver from Costco. Or a Vacmaster chamber sealer if you can swing a stereo receiver-sized one.

    Yep, for 30 years. Downsizing was insane. Feels good now.

    Know what you mean.  We're in 1650 sf.   20 lbs of sh*t in a 10 pound box. 

    The gamesaver is totally fine.  We've probably gone through 4 of them.  This one has lasted the longest.  I have had bad luck with the vertical foodsavers that waste bags because they need an inch and a half to seal.

    Gamesaver Silver was OK. Lost in recent divorce. Got Vacmaster210, ain't looking back now. This thing blows the GS away but of course at a cost.

    I like VacMaster.  I have the Pro 305 as a suction unit (350 is current model) and the VP215 chamber unit.  I use them both and not a single problem.  Highly recommend.

    Vacmaster PRO350 suction sealer and Vacmaster VP120 chamber sealer . Use them both more than just a few times each day . Had many Foodsavers of all types through the years, started with them when they first came out in the mid eighties . With the Pro350 you can use the Foodsaver canisters just need to dial back on the amount of suction which is fully adjustable up to 27.5 . Foodsaver canisters will break on the high suction settings .Chamber sealer is great for wet stuff ,quick marinading and packaging leftovers .

    I have the VacMaster VP215.  Bought it with some reward points through work.  It has been awesome thus far.

    This has been solid for several years now. I never have to wait to seal anything.
    It's not feature rich but does what I need it to do and replacement parts are available so I should have it a while.

    BTW, I didn't pay that much, deals can be found.

    I decided to give it the Food Saver a last try before it hit the can and it worked. I'm guessing we are near the end. Thanks for all of the suggestions.
