FoodSaver Designer Canister Set
Too many faults to be rated high
Been using food saver products since 1999. More than half the time the vacuumed bags leak and lose the seal. Have tried all the tricks recommended by Food Saver; paper towel for wet foods, freeze first, etc but still have problems. Every one of my canisters, and I have bought extra have cracked bottoms and will not hold a vacuum. Fill it 1/4 way and vacuum it down. See the air leak into the canister. When it works it is great but success is rare.
Exception is the hard to find individual seal caps that used to be available but can't find any more. They would be great for glass jars and hold a vacuum indefinitely. Fix the container cracking problem!

Excellent for freezer
I usually purchase shelled pecan pieces before Thanksgiving. I have been using the canister I had to store the pecans for use during the year. Works like a dream. Pecans are fresh and never freezer burned. So, this year I doubles my purchase and ordered 2 canister sets, because I ran out of pecans last year and had to buy them in the store, really expensive. The canisters stand up in by bottom drawer of the freezer. I can now cook all kinds of treats, especially pecan pie, for my friends and family the whole year.

Have been using this product for about ten years and just bought more. They are very good for storing almost anything.

So easy to use
I absolutely love this machine. It is so easy to use, and so efficient. I normally don't like appliances on my counter tops, but this is so professional looking and love the silver and black, that I love it sitting out. With it being right there I use it almost everyday for one thing or another. The canisters are wonderful for preserving foods like brown sugar. And so nice to organize my sugars and flour. I give a two thumbs up on EVERYTHING I have used with my Food Saver.
