FoodSaver Jar Sealer and Wide-Mouth Jar Sealer
I was so exited to try this that I bought jars and lids before it arrived in the mail.
Out of the box on the first try it worked great. I filled the jar with coffee beans and it took two tries, but worked. But...the jar lost its seal after 24 hours.
I put some nuts into a jar and because I refused to give up, I tried 9 times. Yes, nine. Tried warming the lids seals, reversing the gasket, rewashing jars, holding it down, even the two kid thing. Nope not even close.
I was about to pack it in and return everything really peeved. I decided to try my handheld fresh saver vac that came with my full unit. Bingo. That worked great! So I'll see if that keeps working.
Maybe my full sized unit is just not getting good suction through the accessory tube. If that is the case I'm going there is a fix for that.

This product has saved me a LOT of money!
Many years ago I learned about vacuum sealing Mason jars. Since then, I've stored many different items such as salt, red pepper, dried peas and beans, rice, oatmeal, pasta noodles ... etc. The list goes on! Anyway, I'm a MAJOR FAN of this type of storage! It TRULY keeps my items FRESH for a MUCH LONGER TIME than depending on the container it came in, or ordinary plastic bags. Thanks FoodSaver!!!

A long term food storage must!
Long term food storage is greatly simplified when using these mason jar adapters. As a Prepper and a Mormon to boot, I have explored the many different ways to help keep my food supply fresh. For that purpose, this jar sealer is a MUST HAVE! This system allows me to work with a range of food and non-food items that wold be difficult to store otherwise. For example, I find using this jar sealer invaluable for storing cooking oils. I highly recommend this product to anyone that is serious about keeping their goods fresh for a longer term. I would feel lost without it.

I love this wide mouth jar attachment. I have sealed up everything from cilantro to leftover canned pumpkin. I love the jar storage for refridgerator as well as dry goods in the pantry. I wish I had known about it sooner. I have even purched one for a friend and I'm sure she will love it too.
