Needing a new vacuum sealer, as mine doesn’t seem to suction air out as well as it did when it was newer. Any recommendations on brand/model? What are y’all using?

My cabelas brand one sucks. Paid too much for it to throw it out but I hate it.

I appreciate the advice. I’ve read so many reviews on amazon that I don’t know what to believe.

I would suggest you get a chamber vacuum packing machine. They cost a little more but they are more than worth it. They also have replaceable parts if something goes out.

We bought the Foodsaver V4840 three years ago. It’s seen a lot of use and still rocks. I recommend it.

It’s the same one Pootie recommended.

I replaced the foam seal ovals and mine started working like new again.
Bought the kit off amazon.

I have a Food Saver brand that I bought at Costco. I am very happy with it.

Foodsaver Gamesaver. High duty rating is good if you are packing a deer or hog.

My father has the VacMaster VP112S Chamber Vacuum Sealer and does good work. One of the problems is it's not easy to move around so he keeps it on a cart. Also it really limits the size of things that you can seal which isn't too much of a problem. You also need a budget of $600 to get one from Amazon.
