Rated 5 out of 5 by midcarp The best part of having a food saver
I have both the regular and large attachment for evacuating Mason jars. I use this more than the ability to seal bags. Once you start using it, you will find hundreds of uses for evacuating mason jars. I like salads and make six at a time, storing them in 1 qt jars in the frig, That way they will keep for about 10 days. Just one of the uses I've found.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FtnCityGirl Trick needed to make it work
After reading the previous reviews of this product, I decided to order, even with the knowledge that it might be hard to get a good seal. I, indeed, found it hard to obtain a good seal using the product as directed. The reviewer who commented about using two lids, the top one having a small hole in it was SPOT ON. It works 90% of the time with the second lid. I love the product, and don't mind reusing this second lid to obtain the seal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Damie40 I use this quite frequently
I use this during the season to store surplus greens in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. By that time, there is usually enough greens for the freezer or the canner.
I also use this to seal dry beans, rice, and anything else that can be sealed, i.e., dried cranberries, jerky, pasta, herbs, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LPVT Works perfect
No issues with mine as others have reported. Seals first time every time. No need for dbl. lidding, punching holes, wetting the rubber, or any of the other workarounds posted here. Sealing rubber does not fall out of mine either. I use good new jars, make sure the lid rubber and jar top edge is clean and go! Before using for the first time I replaced both upper and lower gaskets in my 10 year old Food-saver machine as that was needed to restore full vacuuming operation. Very satisfied.
