I was excited to see how a food saver can be very valuable in keeping food from going bad. I have been looking for one on eBay and Amazon for a while. I'm bad at eBay because I always get outbid. I'm not always on the computer watching as the time expires. I like Amazon because I can find a good price and just purchase it - not lose out to a bidding war. I found a brand new Food Saver unit on Amazon for $59.95 with free shipping. The wide mouth Jar sealer was $11.69 w/free shipping.
I received this in May and finally have found the time to use it. Now that I am in the process of canning and working on my food storage room again I cleaned bottles and started filling them. FINALLY!
