FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System Giveaway

Sleek simplicity describes the FoodSaver V3880 Fully Automatic Vacuum Sealing System (MSRP:  $179)

The FoodSaver® system keeps food fresh five times longer and prevents freezer burn.

It saves money because you can buy in bulk or when your favorite items go on sale and vacuum seal them, rather than having them go to waste.



 Fully automatic operation makes this model easy to operate

Two vacuum speeds (normal and gentle) and two food settings (moist and dry), take the guesswork out of food preservation

Fully automatic operation auto detects FoodSaver® bag and starts vacuum sealing

Air-tight heat seal removes air from specially designed bags. 2 vacuum speeds automatically adjust based on food type. Pulse Vac feature allows complete manual control of air removal

2 seal levels that auto detect moist or dry food

Accessory mode for containers and canisters seals any FoodSaver® container air-tight

Helps with meal preparation – the Marinate Mode allows you to take an entire day out of the cooking process

With the touch of a button, and the FoodSaver® Marinator (sold separately), you can infuse meats, poultry, fish and vegetables with flavor in minutes rather than overnight

Patented removable drip trip catches overflow liquids and is dishwasher safe

Conveniently stores the rolls and built in cutter to create custom-sized bags

Starter kit includes: 1 – 11 inch x 18 feet heat seal roll and 12 – quart-sized heat seal bags

 Meat, poultry, or fish are probably the first items that come to mind, but you can vacuum seal just about anything.

Bread, rolls, and English Muffins

Raisin Bread for Raisin Lovers

    Hey Averie, Just wanted to let you know that I featured this nice giveaway on Foodie Giveaways (, a site I just created as a place where food blogs/sites could share the giveaways they are currently running and where people could easily find free food-related stuff.

    I’m afraid I personally can’t enter this giveaway as I’m currently living in Australia. Too bad :( But good luck for all the other readers!

    A few years ago my niece hot a food saver and made me a ton of pasta and sealed and froze it in little packages I was in heaven so I’d do that again!

  3. Mike — January 25, 2013 at 2:19 am (#

    I would use it to save my favorite summer fruits and veggies so that I could freeze them. It’s way I could use them in my winter cooking for that little taste of summer when the temperatures dip in the negative numbers like this week has been , brrrrrr.

  4. Michelle @ Eat Move Balance — January 25, 2013 at 2:22 am (#

    I would use it to save money by buying things in bulk when they’re on sale since I’d be able to freeze them to use later. Great giveaway–thanks Averie!

  5. Bill — January 25, 2013 at 2:48 am (#

    Great way to save money and food

  6. Amanda Renea — January 25, 2013 at 3:38 am (#

    I would seal pieces of chicken and beef so I would have pre measured portions ready for fondue!

  7. Scott — January 25, 2013 at 5:34 am (#

    I would love one of these to use for sealing all the venison and pork we butcher and pack ourselves!

  8. Joanne — January 25, 2013 at 6:09 am (#

    I would love love love be able to seal bread since I can never finish a loaf before it gets stale!

  9. Lindsey — January 25, 2013 at 6:35 am (#

    I would definitely seal granola bars!

  10. Jessi — January 25, 2013 at 6:40 am (#

    I would love to be able to use it to seal meat and freezer meals so they stay fresh! Freezer bags always give my food freezer burn :(

  11. dana — January 25, 2013 at 6:45 am (#

    i bake a lot of challah at once, when i have time, so it would be great to really seal it in so its fresh when i defrost it for Shabbat.

  12. Marina@Picnic at Marina — January 25, 2013 at 6:46 am (#

    I’ve been looking at this machine, it’s a good tool to have in each working kitchen. I’d like to have it to seal fruits and vegetables during it’s peak season. Fish, sealed in it is like fresh after de-frosting. My friend has it, and I sealed some strawberries last year. Oh dear, it was so deliciously fresh! Need one of those! :)

  13. Kristen — January 25, 2013 at 6:47 am (#

    I would love to know that the meat I seal up is actually going to be good quality meat when I unfreeze it. I’ve wanted one of these for the last year but it’s too expensive to warrant me buying it for just a two person household. I would love to win it!

  14. Alison @ Ingredients, Inc. — January 25, 2013 at 6:48 am (#

    i have heard these are great! That’s a great giveaway for us cooks! Like your new photo on your site girl!

  15. Mary H. — January 25, 2013 at 6:58 am (#

    I would use the Food Saver to get more organized and prepared for dinners by making meals ahead, sealing and then freezing them. And to make sure food I buy — especially meats — doesn’t get freezer burn! Thanks for the chance to win.

  16. Francine — January 25, 2013 at 7:04 am (#

    I find that the crisper in my fridge doesn’t keep my produce very well – I’d use it to keep my fruits and veggies fresh!

  17. Lyta — January 25, 2013 at 7:05 am (#

    I would use it to split up meat & add different marinades. Plus better storage in my freezer! Thanks!

  18. Michele Sparrow — January 25, 2013 at 7:06 am (#

    I am totally tripping on this entry today. Last night, my husband and I were talking about how we needed to go out and get one of these food savers once and for all as we wanted to start buying rice and beans in bulk, along with some fish we might be getting our hands on! Talk about timing! So, that’s what we would seal up: grains and fish! Here’s to hoping for the best! :-)

  19. Catherine — January 25, 2013 at 7:06 am (#

    A vac sealer has been on my list of kitchen things for awhile. I figure it would be perfect to seal up all the raw crackers and goodies I be dehydrating.

  20. Valerie — January 25, 2013 at 7:11 am (#

    Marinaded meat for easy meal planning as well as bulk cheese.

  21. Emily R. — January 25, 2013 at 7:14 am (#

    I plan to buy more meat when it’s on sale and freeze it all nice and sealed up. Same with other things: cheese, fruit, maybe some veggies, etc. It will save us money, for sure!

  22. Bryan R. — January 25, 2013 at 7:24 am (#

    Definitely large quantities of meat, fish and poultry! Need to clean out the freezer first though…

  23. JaLynn — January 25, 2013 at 7:27 am (#

    I like to make soup and freeze it for easy dinners later in the month. The vacuum sealer will make freezing soup so much easier.

  24. Wendy — January 25, 2013 at 7:41 am (#

    I have been dreaming about getting vaccuum sealers for awhile now.I would use a vaccuum sealer for EVERYTHING on . My blog is all about recipes for care packages and a vaccuum sealer would be amazing for keeping baked goods fresh longer. For people who send military care packages that take weeks to arrive, I hear that vaccuum sealing makes a huge difference. I think vaccuum sealing might also make some recipes mailable that with regular wrap wouldn’t stay fresh long enough. Thanks!

    Oh man. I am a busy college student living with my (equally busy) parents, so this would be a perfect way for us to seal our leftovers or marinated meat without risking freezer burn (which seems to happen so often). I’d also use them to make me feel less guilty about making things like your peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies because I could freeze them after!

  26. A farmer in the dell — January 25, 2013 at 7:57 am (#

    I would love to use this puppie to freeze a lot af the veggies I will be harvesting this summer. What a great giveaway!

  27. Emily — January 25, 2013 at 8:06 am (#

    I’d use it to assemble make ahead crockpot meals for my family. Probably stews or stir frys!

  28. Emily Wilson — January 25, 2013 at 8:07 am (#

    I would love to cook double and freeze the second portion to have quick meals during busy times!!

  29. Amy — January 25, 2013 at 8:15 am (#

    I’ve been wanting a FoodSaver for a long time! I do a lot of freezer cooking and I would love to use it for freezeable foods.

  30. shannon — January 25, 2013 at 8:26 am (#

    My boyfriend loves to buy hops in bulk, so we’d use it to package those so they don’t take up my entire freezer!! i need room for my frozen mango :)

  31. Stacy — January 25, 2013 at 8:31 am (#

    My husband and I both work full time, my husband also goes to school full time and we have an 8 month old little cutie pie. This would be so helpful in prepping meals ahead of time and pulling them out in a pinch! Not to mention the money we would save (who knew a baby could be so expensive ;-) )

  32. Melissa @ Kids in the Sink — January 25, 2013 at 8:31 am (#

    I would probably use it to seal up my homemade breads!

  33. Leah — January 25, 2013 at 8:32 am (#

    I would use the food saver to help me prepare meals ahead of time and freeze them so that I had more go-to foods!

  34. marti — January 25, 2013 at 8:35 am (#

    definitely would be USED! especially to seal our roasts and ground meat! Would also be great for soups..i have been wanting one of these for quite a while!

  35. Hello Kimmy — January 25, 2013 at 8:43 am (#

    Very excited. I have always wanted to try one of these.

  36. melissa@IWasBornToCook — January 25, 2013 at 9:07 am (#

    I’d seal anything and everything!

  37. Amy M — January 25, 2013 at 9:21 am (#

    I like to buy shredded cheese in bulk and freeze it in more useable portions for later. This would be a great tool for this and many other foods!

  38. Paula — January 25, 2013 at 9:36 am (#

    I would use this to freeze anything I buy in bulk (fish, cheese, vegetables). I think the heavy duty bags and getting all the air out really helps things stay fresh in the freezer.

  39. Kathryn D — January 25, 2013 at 9:57 am (#

    I make meals with the crockpot on the weekends but freeze a lot of leftovers for lunches. This would be a great help

  40. Crystal Baker — January 25, 2013 at 10:06 am (#

    I would buy more in bulk like fruits, veggies, and meats knowing I could properly freeze them.

  41. Stephanie @ My Hands-on Life — January 25, 2013 at 10:11 am (#

    I would love to use this to freeze the personal-sized frozen pizzas I make, and meats, and veggies, and fruits, and so many other things! I hate waste, so lots of foods (salad greens to go in smoothies, overripe bananas, milk and yogurt for smoothies) end up in the freezer before they spoil!

  42. CJ Vierow — January 25, 2013 at 10:17 am (#

    I’ve looked at these so many times! I’d seal leftovers, cooked chicken or beef for a week’s worth of meals, cookies for hubby’s lunch, etc. Thanks for the opportunity to maybe have a food sealer! CJ

  43. karen — January 25, 2013 at 10:21 am (#

    I would love to have a FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System for the fact that I could save so much food. I like to buy meat in bulk (a little meat in this family goes a long way)and vacuum seal it and in the freezer it would go. I think it would be so handy for those times I make cookies or breads that are in danger of going stale before they get eaten–yes it happens at times. I never thought about storing soup and liquids, but that is a great idea also.

  44. Anne — January 25, 2013 at 10:40 am (#

    I have only recently begun to realize what a boon it is to have a freezer full of good food. Using a FoodSaver would make a huge difference in the quality of the food. In fact, later today, I’m going to make broccoli soup using homemade stock and chopped broccoli stems that I’ve had in the freezer for about a month. With a FoodSaver, the broccoli would last much longer than that, I’m sure!

  45. Carling — January 25, 2013 at 10:40 am (#

    Given how OCD I am, I would seal EVERYTHING in my kitchen. Especially extra/leftover portions when I cook.

  46. Leta — January 25, 2013 at 11:07 am (#

    My husband does a lot of lobster catching. I would seal lobster, spaghetti sauce and anything I want to keep fresh in the freezer.

  47. Jessica — January 25, 2013 at 11:18 am (#

    We make big batches of EVERYTHING at home and are always freezing it. Would be nice to have this to keep some of our food longer.

  48. Nikki — January 25, 2013 at 11:19 am (#

    fruits, vegetables, and cheese would be the main things I’d use it for

  49. Barb — January 25, 2013 at 11:22 am (#

    I would do cheese and meats mainly but also fruits and veggies

  50. jennifer — January 25, 2013 at 11:34 am (#

    I would use this to seal meat when I stock up on chicken breasts and pork loin for the freezer. And I think I would probably save a bunch of money since I wouldn’t have to buy box after box of Ziploc freezer bags…
