The Foodsaver is a great invention. I’ve used it for years and love it for saving lunch meats, steaks, gravy, etc. Even the lower priced models are useful, but don’t have some advanced features like a roll storage area. Check out the foodsaver website and you’ll find a nice variety of machines. They even run bag/roll sales from time to time and I’ve found their bag material to be superior to generic brands or even Rival bags. Enjoy!
