This is the quickest way to keep dry goods
I have had a food saver for years. I would recommend it to every person who wants to save money. It freezes in bags that keep your
Food till ready to thaw and use.
I love the way you can fix salads sans dressing for a week. The fruit in season will last a Couple of weeks. Best of all I love the fact that I can dry seal, flours, rice, beans of all kinds, pastas, nuts, chocolates, sugars, nuts, silverware, candies, powdered milk, valuable documents and just about anything you need to keep dry. Use the sealed jars, using the amount you need and resealing again.
I can't say enough about not wasting, saving time, usable products that are a seal away . Thanks

Life safer indeed
Now knowing that you can't use this for long term food sealing for foods like apple sauce or pie filling or chili and meat. You still have to do the traditional water bath canning or pressure cooker canning. BUT. This is exceptional for dry goods canning. Flour, Rice, Sugar, and so forth.
It's excellent for extending shelf life of certain foods like miso paste, Season soybean paste Mayo etc etc .
So I recommend it totally. Also it might work at times with the short wide mouth jars on dry goods but I've not had any success on with wet goods. So stick to the regular size bodied jars with the wide mouths and you cannot go wrong. Make sure the edges of the lid / jar is clean of debris / food particles. I'll write a review for the regular mouth jars soon. Good luck!

I've had problems
I already had the wide mouth sealer and never had one problem sealing jars. However, it has been a different story with the regular size. I get very aggravated trying to use it. I have changed jars, used new lids (instead of re-using old ones) and still have problems. I have had less trouble using 2 lids, but it still gives me problems sometimes. I was also told to put the lids in boiling water (taking the pot off the burner when the water boils) and letting them soak. This also seems to help but I can't count on getting the job done every time. I never had one minute of trouble with the wide mouth one so can't understand why I have a problem with this one.
