First Impressions

If you have had a problem in the past with food sealers that crush your softer foods, don’t give up hope. The FoodSaver V2244 Vacuum Sealing System will let you vacuum seal soft foods, and it won’t hurt them one little bit thanks to the “CrushFree Instant Seal”. The drip tray will catch any additional fluids, and it is easy to remove and wash (it is even dishwasher safe). This is a food sealer that is easy to use, and inexpensive when compared to the larger models that do pretty much the same thing.



This food sealer has a compact design so you can put it just about anywhere and it won’t take up too much space. The manual operation is simple to use, and you can seal anything from meats to sauces and even dry snack foods. All you have to do is place the food inside the bag, place the bag into the vacuum sealing channel, close the latch, and select “Seal” or “Vac/Seal”. The FoodSaver V2244 Vacuum Sealing System does the rest of the work for you.

The FoodSaver V2244 Vacuum Sealing System comes with an accessory hose port, so you can remove air from the FoodSaver containers that you can purchase separately. The hose is included, and it can also be used for marinating foods so you can do it in minutes instead of having to wait for hours while foods marinate in the fridge.

When it comes to sealing soft foods such as desserts and breads, all you have to do is press the button before the cycle automatically shuts off itself. There is also a double-wide sealing strip, so you get a perfect air-tight seal each time you use the FoodSaver V2244 Vacuum Sealing System. The drip tray is easy to clean, and is even dishwasher safe.

Good Points

When you use the FoodSaver V2244 Vacuum Sealing System, you can be sure that you food will stay fresh, even if you leave it inside the freezer for many months. In fact, you will find that over time, you are saving nearly $3,000 annually because you can buy food items in bulk and freeze them to eat later without worrying about spoilage or freezer burn.

Bad Points

Some customers have complained that foods with a lot of liquid don’t always seal tightly. Some of the juice gets sucked up along with the air, and keeps the machine from being able to create a tight seal. Also, you may have to hold the lid down to make sure that you get a really good seal.

Is it Worth It?

Overall, this is a good little food sealer to have in your kitchen. You will be saving a lot of money because you won’t be wasting so much food, so the initial cost is more than offset by the savings over time. It may have a few little quirks, but this can also be said of the more expensive models that are also bulkier and more difficult to use. At less than $100, you will be getting a pretty great deal on the FoodSaver V2244 Vacuum Sealing System.
