Pros: When it worked, it was fine
Cons: They do not last long and cannot be repaired.
This is the second Foodsaver I bought. The first one was the mini foodsaver. Neither lasted more than two years. In both cases, the sealing strip burned out. The manufacturer said that neither could be fixed. For the premium cost for this manufacturer, I expected more.
I will not be burned a third time. I will check out a diifferent manufacturer
