FoodSaver FM2000 Vacuum Sealing System

During the summer, my pantry does not get a lot of traffic. We like to make simple and cool meals that require little time or heat. As the warmer season is winding down, I’m back in the pantry taking stock. I was a little surprised to see packages left partially opened or completely unsealed for who knows how long. I also went through my fridge and freezer and was aghast at the food that had spoiled. These foods are not that old, but they perished so quickly. It’s easy to see how we can lose hundreds if not thousands of dollars on our grocery budget every year. I have the ideal product that will not only keep food longer; it will also save us tons of money. It’s the FoodSaver 2000!

The FoodSaver 2000’s new technology has made this device the number one vacuum sealer on the market. It’s modern, sleek and edgy design is appealing and blends easily with all kitchen decors. It’s modest in size, lightweight, and comes with a starter kit. With just a few simple steps, you can vacuum seal the freshness in your food for weeks, months and even years.

The FoodSaver 2000 is incredibly easy to use and includes a starter kit. The kit comes with two pre-cut sizes of bags, plus an uncut roll. The uncut roll is a huge bonus, I love it, it gives you the freedom to choose the length of bag required. The result is 40% reduction in bag waste, yields more bags per roll, and saves you money. It will also give you an idea of what works best for your family’s needs.

I personally prefer to cut my own bags; unfortunately, you have to do this manually with this unit. Measure the length you need and add an additional three inches for sealing. Once cut you can proceed to seal one open end before adding your food. To do this, you’ll need to put one open end of the bag in the Vacuum Channel, turn the lever on the left side of the device to ‘Operate‘ mode and press Seal. The indicator light will turn on while working and will shut off automatically when sealing is done. Now, unlock and check out the neat and perfect seam the unit makes. The bag is now ready for you to add your food. You’ll need to seal the other end by following the same steps, but this time you’ll press the ‘Seal and Vac‘ button. This function will remove all the air out of the bag and then heat seal the end. You can tell it’s working by the unmistakable noise it makes, but it only lasts a few seconds. That’s it; you’re done. Just date your package and store!

We also discovered you can reseal store-bought bags of chips, cookies, pretzels, and more. Their bags fit right into the FoodSaver and are quickly resealed. I’m so impressed with the amount of food saved and the versatility of this appliance. Its portability makes it user-friendly.

Included in the unit is a removable Drip Tray; it catches any excess moisture that is drawn out of the bags. It also has an Accessory Hose which, is compatible with all food saver containers and accessories.

It keeps food fresher up to 5x longer and saves lots of food waste. It comes with a 5-year limited warranty and is priced for all budgets. We love the FoodSaver and have used it to seal every kind of food that needs to stay fresh for an extended time. We deem it a must-have kitchen appliance for all homes. It’s ideal for a busy home to a busy student.
