Vacuum sealer advice...
Ok, here's the deal. We just sunk a ton of money into a Food Saver brand vacuum sealer, bags, O2 absorbers, the whole shooting match. The only catch is the Food Saver sucks! And yes, I get the pun here, but really, it is a piece o' @@#$. We sent it back to Amazon after a week and a half of very poor performance. And before you say anything-yes we called the company and got some advice that kinda' worked. The real problem is that this thing would overheat(or just get tired) after a few bags in a row were sealed. We also addressed this and the company said to give a little cool down time. We did, and three bags later it was back to not vacuuming. We also asked around and this seems to be a common theme...the newer models are trash. So, that being said, anyone have any advice? Otherwise I'm going to have to unload a crapload of FS bags.
