With this vacuum sealer, i finally able to seal my steak and meat to ensure the freshness. i love the sealer function too. i can cut the sealing bags into the size i need and seal them first and vacuum seal food, fruit, even yogurt in any size i want for my children. And make easier for my kids, i cut a little tip on the bag, so they can tear the bag open easily. This product is less expensive while work great.
