Review Summary:

I have always been looking for a single solution to all my storage problems, and so I have tried many things including various vacuum sealers, but nothing seems to work. However, this narrative changed when I bought the FoodSaver V4880 because storage is now the least of my worries. It comes with fully a fully automatic function that detects the bag and starts the process, and you only have to place the bag with the open end on the machine.

FoodSaver V4880 Vacuum Sealer Review

I have always been looking for a single solution to all my storage problems, and so I have tried many things including various vacuum sealers, but nothing seems to work. However, this narrative changed when I bought the FoodSaver V4880 because storage is now the least of my worries. I think this is one of the best Vacuum Sealer I have used. It comes with fully a fully automatic function that detects the bag and starts the process, and you only have to place the bag with the open end on the machine. However, what I like most is that it comes with a fully loaded starter kit that has everything you may need to store food. It also has LED indicators and two-speed levels making it perfect for domestic use.

Cons

  • Although it is not as cumbersome as others on the market, it might still be a little heavy for some users. The weight will make it hard for them to move it from one place to the other.
