I admit that I have been wanting a FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer for a LONG LONG time. I love saving money and buying in bulk. I appreciate having fresh foods that I was able to freeze and pull out of the freezer to prepare for my family. I appreciate even more that it gives me more time with the family as it makes cooking so much easier too, as well as portion control. Why didn’t I have one? Good question. I had a similar type product a long time ago (no brand name mentioned) and well, it just didn’t seal the deal for me. But the FoodSaver FM 2000 Vacuum Sealer does.
Disclosure: I received the product mentioned in this post for review. Our sponsor FoodSaver is also providing one lucky reader the chance to win one! All opinions expressed are 100% my own and my family’s and based on our experience with the product.

Review of the FoodSaver FM 2000 Vacuum Sealer
This vacuum sealer kit comes with everything I need to get started including:
- 3 – Quart Bags
- 2 – Gallon Bags
- 1 – 11” x 10′ Roll
- 1 – Accessory Hose
I had it out of the box and set up for service in just minutes! The FoodSaver FM2000 Vacuum Sealer’s claim to fame is that it:
“keeps food fresh up to 5x longer and saves up to $2700 per year based on buying in bulk, on sale and preventing waste.”
Now that caught my eye. There is nothing worse than buying food and then having to throw it away! I could type a whole bunch of words but this video says it all.
It is so compact and convenient. I simply place the bag in the opening, close it, and push a button. It doesn’t get much easier than that. It fits on my counter top, and then it is also so compact that it fits easily in my cupboard. The removable tray is dishwasher safe and comes with a 5 year warranty. I didn’t have that with my other product! It even came with the accessory port and hose vacuum seals canisters and marinates food in minutes. I’ve been thinking about canning and doing canned food meals and this would be a great way to create my own sauces, salad dressings, marinade and even quick and easy meals.
I recently used it to handle 40 lbs – yes 40 POUNDS OF CHICKEN! I picked up my box of chicken from Zaycon Foods and I definitely don’t want anything to happen to it. I want all 40 lbs to be used and the Food Saver Vacuum Sealer is going to help me make sure of that.
I do admit that I’m lazy, and I like the bags much better than the roll and my refills will most likely be those.
