Might be as good of an excuse as any to get one now. Just worried I'll buy something in a haste and overpay or get something that isn't what I really need.

Mine was a gift...it seems to work fine once you get a feel for cutting the bags to the optimal size. It looks to be the Foodsaver V3835.

I'll see if I can find a brick & mortar that is close to that price. If so, I'll pick it up. Otherwise, I'll keep my eyes peeled and/or order it from Amazon.

Probably should have planned ahead and had one by this Sunday.

A few less bells and whistles, but what about this one? I have a 20% coupon and could pick it up today.

Just looked at a comparison of those 2 and the few things that mine has over that one I have never used. The auto seal is nice, but certainly not required if you just make sure your bags are cut large enough.

Strange that BB&B is selling it for $10 over MSRP but you will get that back plus some with the coupon.

Probably just do this one. It has the auto function on it for just a few bucks more.

How about a couple of pictures?

Here is the before:


Here is the after:


Notice the grilled corn on the cob. I invited my in-laws over and another couple and told them both that I'd have a grill full of food. They apparently didn't realize that it meant grill space was at a premium.

It was all cooked with the lid open most of the time as I was doing a lot of rotating. The leftovers were vacuum sealed in my new toy and put in the freezer.

That wasn't so bad after all.

When in a pinch, corn in the microwave can turn out pretty good. I know it's not the same as on the grill, but depending on how full the grill is, it works well enough.

Keep the husk on and do a few minutes, rotate and do a few more minutes. 3/3 is good for 2 ears, 4/4 is good for 3-4 ears, etc.

Enjoy the good eating for a few weeks off and on! I love to grill up a ton of food on the weekend so I have good grab and go food for my lunches during the week that don't require a bunch of time in the morning putting it together.

I had the room, it just added another element to the cook and a little more street cred. Thick cut pork, thin cut pork, chicken breasts, and a ribeye was interesting.

The thin cut pork was the only thing that came out a little dry. Everything else, corn included, actually turned out really well cooked. The seasonings were pretty basic and nothing special, but good. Plenty of chicken and pork for the week, though!
