    Initial impressions are very good

    This is our 2nd FoodSaver...it replaces a well used basic model that is appx 12-15 yrs old, which isn't dead mind you, just very tired and needing some tlc so we bought a new, upgraded model. Never even considered a brand other than FoodSaver as we used the old one a lot and it held up unbelievably well, so we are hoping this one stands up equally well (we'll add another star if so). The initial impression of the 5200 is very good (thus the 4 Stars)... the roll storage in the unit is awesome (coming from the old way with separate rolls, cutting, inserting to seal both ends, hoping it was cut perfect, etc) and the automatic sealing seems to work very well. I like that we still get to decide exactly how much bag we need. The hand sealer seems to work well...just did a test pass on a canister that we have from the first sealer (huge kudos for FoodSaver making it work with previous accessories!), but it worked as it should and retracted nicely in to the unit (vs having to find the hose, attach it, undo after,etc). We only have the initial use to go by, and will update with further experience, but so far we are very pleased...it seals as it should and the newer features are great.

    The FM5200 operates great - vacuums and seals quickly, with little waste in bag usage. However, I feel that the design suffers with having to hold the bag so high up to insert it into the window. It's difficult to have several items, such as steaks or hamburgers, stay in single layer position when at such an angle. Lower machines have the advantage of the bag being supported by the countertop. This is my one disappointment with this model. I also recommend pre-freezing any items with heavy moisture to get the best sealing results. Bought it on sale, not sure i wouldl love so much at full retail.

    I purchased this after a number of years of considering a Food Saver system. I was recently divorced and trying to not let food go bad when only cooking for myself and my son became a problem. I purchased this so I could continue to buy the family pack of chicken breast and separate them into individual or 2 packs. I did not like freezer bags and wanted something that keeps out the freezer burn. These work great. Yes it is more work to take the package from the store and put into this, but everything looks great in my freezer and nothing has had freezer burn in the 2 months I have had it.

    I wanted to get this product because we are empty nesters and have leftovers. I wanted to freeze them and keep them fresh for future use. I have had no problems with the pouches, but have had difficulty figuring out how to make your pouch. Hopefully, I will get it figured out.

    Excellent Options to vac-seal multiple containers

    So far, this is meeting my expectations and then some: I bought the accessories to vac-seal glass canning jars, the ziplock bags, and plastic containers. They all work. I used the glass jars in my sous-vide to avoid heating plastic with food in it - This makes me very happy. I also vac-seal food in jars, if I want to extend the shelf life extra days.

    Thus is a great device! Bought it then sealed about 100 bucks in meat.. super easy to do and easy to follow instructions. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is it is difficult to clean out the inner tray .it is removable but when it vacuums the bag it sucks a small amount of juice..most of it goes into the tray which is great.

    Great product with so many options and takes up less space than my older model! Only giving it a 4 star because the bag cutter and bag sealer should be switched...bag cutter on top and bag sealer on the bottom. Why? Because it's easier to seal when you can lay the bag on the counter vs. trying to hold it.

    Before getting this we used the standard freezer ziploc bags and after a while our meats became freezer burnt. Now we don't have that issue anymore. Can be hard sometimes to get the vacuum to pull all of the air out but if you catch it in time you can just move bag around and restart sealing process.

    I tend to buy is bulk, so I need to divide it up into meal size portions. It was a little confusing at first but then we figured it out even following the directions. I am looking forward to lots of usage because of buying food in bulk for the family.

    It has a learning curve and I wasted about 1/4 of the roll figuring it out. It would not seal so I left it alone went to bed and the next day it started working fine. just wish the replacement rolls where cheaper.

    Love to use this. Especially the vacuum seal containers. It allows me to preserve my fresh foods longer. The only complaint I have is the connector that came with the machine not great but able to use adapters that come with the containers

    I'm am pleased with this product, but only four stars for the reason of not being able to seal bread without it crushing it. Over all happy though.

    It performs as advertised, though aligning the sleeves so that there are no air leaks and there is no waste of material can be a bit annoying.

    I really like this. It's a little difficult to figure out in the beginning (I didn't find the directions super helpful), but it works great!

    This product is worth the money. I use it every day. Only difficult part is trying to hold the bag and pushing the bar to begin the auctioning process.

    The sealer sometimes has to be done a second time and that can be frustrating. But overall works as advertised.

    Does exactly what it says it will. The zip lock works well but does get worn out after like 3 reuse.
