FoodSaver Jar Sealer and Wide-Mouth Jar Sealer
Even though I've had this wide mouth jar sealer for over a year (it came with my FoodSaver), I just started using it. Boy, was I missing out. I have been having a problem keeping my brown sugar soft, even in an "air-tight" container. So, I decided to vacuum seal it in a jar with the jar accessory. It sealed great. i can see what's inside the jar, and I used the wide-mouth jar so it's easy to get to what's inside. Wow, what a difference! I should have done this a long time ago.

This product makes canning easier!
We have used this product to can delicious trail mix, beans, and dried fruit. It was quick, fun, and easy. I would recommend this product to my friends in a heartbeat.

Product needs modifications to work
In order for the regular lid attachment to work I have to use a second lid with a hole punched in it to seal, and have to wiggle the hose attachment around. I think the problem may be the size of the hole where you attach the hose and the fix may be to get a second hose and attach it with silicone, but I have not tried this yet. Regular lid attachment does work and can get a seal with the modifications. Giving it two stars as you should be able to use it without any changes.

Good, useful product
I use this wide mouth jar sealer regularly since I purchased it and I wish I would have gotten one sooner. It is useful to seal my mason jars and store things that I access every few days instead of just using a screw on lid or actually canning the item. I keep flour, other dry goods, sauces, leftovers, etc. in wide mouth jars and the jar sealer just keeps things fresher, longer.
I will purchase a regular size jar sealer now because of the usefulness of the wide mouth one.
