FoodSaver GameSaver Deluxe Vacuum Packaging System by Tilia
Love my GameSaver - plus a tip that might help
I bought my first GameSaver many years ago from a major outdoor retailer, and this year I'm buying one for my mother for Christmas. One hint that might help: this year the seal failed. I don't know if it was age, if it had dried out, etc. I tried wetting the sealing areas, and it immediately improved. After that, I bought a can of food-grade silicone spray, and applied it by hand by spraying it first onto a clean towel, and then applying it to the sealing areas. It was a rebirth! I once again froze dozens of bags of sealed garden vegetables. And among several of my favorites, I marinate jerk chicken at least once every couple of weeks. Does a fantastic job!

Use It Virtually Every Day
Bought a Gamesaver to replace my original Foodsaver that died after over 10 years of continuous use. Same style except it doesn't have the "progression" buttons that tell you what stage of vacuuming it is in....which made no difference. Quiet, fast and so easy to use. Blade doesn't seem quite as sharp as my original though. I use it for storing batches of chili, sealing cheese, resealing chips - you name it. It has saved me hundreds of dollars over the years keeping things fresh. No ice crystals like a normal strip seal bag in the freezer. Just thinking that this would be the perfect wedding gift. Frozen goods would probably last longer than the marriage............

This product has great features
It took a few minutes and some assistance from my husband to figure out how to work the controls as it is different than my old Foodsaver. I am very happy with it so far. I especially like the wet-dry feature. The only thing I would say wasn't an improvement over my old one is where the location of the cutter is. It is very good for making a bag, however, with my old one--after I sealed a package I could slide the cutter and cut the excess bag material off, thus saving freezer space and making a neater package. With this one I have to reposition my package, or use another means to cut off the excess.

I'm pleased with the product.
My original unit finally quit working, so this was a replacement for that. Didn't realize how much I used it till it broke, so replacing it was no question. I upgraded to a Game Saver Deluxe, but I don't really see any great upgrade and am disappointed that it does not have the pulse feature, which is why the good and not the excellent rating. Over all I am pleased with the product and hope to continue to get years of use from it as I did from my last one.
