FoodSaver Jar Sealer and Wide-Mouth Jar Sealer
Was so excited about my new foodsaver, first time user. The regular jar lid sealer does not work. Got it with my foodsaver. I am glad I didn't pay extra for this useless accessory. Tried everything everyone recommended. Also read that the wide jar sealer works better. Also had a problem with the plastic containers, which I did pay extra for. I finally got one to seal and the other one no good for now. Will try again tomorrow. I wanted to get the canisters but will not get since the other accessories are not working. Bags and rolls all work great and are very easy to use as long as you don't over stuff for the size using. Looking forward to seeing if my food stays longer and fresher. Was also excited about using mason jars which I love to use, but we will have to see if I can work out the problems. Wish me luck... Will keep you informed on progress.

I have been using the large mouth jar sealer for a couple of weeks, and it works flawlessly. However the small mouth jar sealer did not work at the first attempt. I compared the two and it seems the small sealers gasket is slightly too large, however if I make sure the lid is properly centered, then hold down the jar sealer firmly it seems to make a seal with the top portion of the jar just below the neck, and makes a good vacuum seal.

This is a great new tool
Ordered both the regular and wide mouth jar sealers and both have worked without any problems. Had read that some people are having trouble with the regular size but each and every jar sealed the first time. No do overs. I have only had it for one day but have used it for trail mix, oyster crackers, pine nuts and small amounts of shredded cheese which I buy in bulk. Even worked great on jars saved from pickled beets. Great investment!

Wide mouth and regular mouth, all in one machine
My wife and I can together. We have found the FoodSaver machine to be everything it is advertized to be. Our very first use was successful, it was so simple and effective that we were amazed. We have great plans for the FoodSaver as we are preparing and large supply of emergency foods for the family. It is assuring to know that what we prepare is going to be safe and useable when it is needed. We both give the FoodSaver 5 Gold Stars.
