Rated 5 out of 5 by ATLBrysco GREAT for Juicing!
My doctor recently put me on a diet that has alternating periods of fresh fruit and vegetable juices (with no solid food) for 15 days at a time. I had a juicer already, so it wasn't a major expense of appliance buying, but the diet required four fresh juice portions per day with each recipe making double servings.
Since I work, this meant that the juice would have to be made the night before or in the morning before I went to work (approximately 1.5 hours to make both recipes with cutting and juicing). Further, there was no solution for taking the juices to work, since air is considered the "enemy" of fresh juice and causes them to start losing their nutritional value almost immediately after being made.
While researching this problem, I stumbled across an article about sealing juices in airtight containers right after juicing - complete vacuum sealing would allow juices to stay fresh and retain the majority of their nutritional value in a refrigerator for weeks (in some cases), while freezing would allow them to last for months.
Here was solution to my problem in one wide-mouth plastic jar sealer from FoodSaver... I make my juices up and seal them in 2 qt. mason jars and pop them in the fridge. With an extended shelf-life, I can even make them on the weekends and then just pop them in a cooler on the appropriate day to take to work, for a day in the park, or (even in one case) an 800-mile drive across half the country on a vacation with the juice jars in a cooler full of ice.
FoodSaver saved my diet, my weight is rapidly dropping and my doctor is happy. Once again, my investment in a FoodSaver appliance has been more than justified and earned it's weight in gold many times over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grant This product is great
This product is very easy to use. It puts my empty jars to use and keeps my items fresh. We now buy the family size bags of cereal and once we open a bag I will separate it into quart jars to keep as fresh as we first bought it. I also have used this product for spaghetti leftovers. This is a wonderful product that keeps things fresh longer without buying the wasteful ziplock bags. It also looks nicer than the Tupperware. Thank you for a product that is so easy to use

Rated 5 out of 5 by Veggiesfor3 wide mouth jar sealer is awesome!
I love both the wide and regular mouth mason jar sealers and use them everyday. Right now I am getting local vegetables through a farm share, so I get a lot of produce on my once-a-week pickup day. Instead of stuffing them in plastic bags in my refrigerator, I wash and chop the veggies right away, then pack them into half-gallon wide mouth jars and seal. Then they are all ready to use when it's time to prepare a meal. And they stay so freshy-fresh!!! Also they look so pretty and appealing in the frig! Never any waste, because I can see what I have, instead of things getting buried under loads of bags in the crisper drawer. This system saves me time and money (no wasted veggies that have wilted), and is also more eco-friendly -- no more plastic bags! I also use the jars to keep dehydrated fruits fresh for long-term storage, and even to keep my cats' dry food fresh when I have bought a giant bag. I am sure I will think of even more uses for my Food Saver jar sealers, like keeping seeds from my garden fresh until next year. I also buy herbs and spices in bulk, at great savings, and this will be a wonderful way to keep those fresh. I just can't say enough good things about the jar sealers! They are easy to use, and fun too. Thanks for creating this wonderful product!
