I am wanting to spend no more than $250-$300 on one, hell cheaper if I can. I want to be able to vacuum seal everything from sandwiches for when we hike to left over pulled pork, briskets, and ribs (if there are any) plus buy more in bulk and portion it out and vacuum seal it to freeze, including bread if I can. anyways what do you guys suggest, cabella has a nice sale going on right now on their sealers so I want to buy quick if something from there is suggested. Price of bags comes into question to as I have some expensive ones and some cheap ones. I will not be sealing hundreds of pounds of stuff all at once so if cool down for a few seconds or even a minute has to happen than so be it. TIA
My wife bought the Foodsaver V3880 model at Costco. Last week I bought the Gamesaver marinate box. The machine works awesome. It has a gentle cycle for breads and moist cycle for wet foods like rare meats. I highly recommend this unit. I don't have the exact price, but it surely wasn't $300.00 or "She Who Must Be Obeyed", wouldn't have bought it!
