First Impressions

When you are able to freeze foods, you can save a lot of money on your grocery bills. But, food in the freezer doesn’t last very long. Or, does it? It will, when you are using the FoodSaver V3240 Vacuum Sealing System. You can use this machine to seal just about anything, from meats to soups, stews, and even sauces, and everything will taste as fresh as it did the day it was cooked. This is a great machine to have when you want to have meals ready in a few minutes, because all you have to do is take a bag out of the freezer and heat it up.



Some food sealers simply seal foods, and there are no special settings for various types of food. When you use the FoodSaver V3240 Vacuum Sealing System, you will have the option to adjust the vacuum speed for whatever types of foods you are sealing. You can even adjust the level on the seal based on whether the food is moist or dry.

This is a smaller food sealer, so you can easily store it, or simply keep it on the countertop and it will be out of the way. It does have an extra-wide sealing strip, so you know that no matter what size bags you are using, you will always get a perfect, air-tight seal that will hold in food freshness and flavor.

There is a drip tray that will catch any overflow, so you won’t end up having to clean a big mess. The drip tray is removable, and easy to clean. You can even toss it right into the dishwasher. Also included is a hose that lets you seal in freshness and can be used with all of the FoodSaver canisters and containers.

Good Points

When you use the FoodSaver V3240 Vacuum Sealing System, you can be sure of an air-tight seal that will lock in freshness and not leak. The accessory port lets you store the hose and FoodSaver containers. One of the best points about this machine is the fact that there are settings for different types of foods, which you won’t see on lower-quality food sealers.

Bad Points

One of the biggest drawbacks to using the FoodSaver V3240 Vacuum Sealing System is the fact that the bags aren’t cheap. In fact, you will be spending about $1 for each bag. While this may not sound expensive, if you do a lot of sealing, the cost is really going to add up after a while. Some customers also say that it doesn’t seal quite as well as the description says it does.

Is it Worth It?

When you want a food sealer and you don’t particularly want to spend hundreds of dollars, the FoodSaver V3240 Vacuum Sealing System is an excellent option. It does come with a good-sized roll of bags to get you started, and you can store some foods for up to three years once they have been sealed with this machine.
