It provides the ability to preserve foods in both the long and short term with ease.

FoodSaver® 4800Vacuum Sealing System

It has the functionality and convenience of two vacuum sealing appliances in one.

In addition, a handy marinate mode infuses food with flavor in minutes instead of hours.

Compact, upscale, and fully automatic, this appliance features an easy-open drawer with patented removable drip tray for easy clean up.

FoodSaver® 4800Vacuum Sealing System

The FoodSaver® system keeps food fresh up to five times longer, helps prevent freezer burn, and can save families up to $2,700 a year.

Many people think of meat or proteins when they think of food sealing systems, but I think of cookie dough. You can preserve cookie dough for quick and easy baking on your schedule.

Or seal and ship your baked goodies to your friends, family, and loved ones across the miles.

  1. I’d love to have one in my kitchen. I often harvest bulk of vegetables and then let them ruined after 5 days more or less.

  2. So bummed I missed out on this giveaway! I’ve been wanting to get one of these bad boys!

  3. I would love a foodsaver. Now living on a fixed income makes it more important to not waste anything.

  4. I’m so excited about your FoodSaver 4800 Series Vacuum Sealer Giveaway, that I can barely type this comment. I have an older, now yellowed, FoodSaver that I have used to store not only meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts and other snacks, but sewing items and travel items such as cosmetics and medicines. This technology is so advanced and so useful for our time. My husband used to ask me to vacuum-seal dental materials and to double seal sterilized instruments and other items that he took when traveling by airplane or train when going to teach dental clinics, or to perform dental treatment people who could not afford to go to the dentist in a foreign setting or another city. I lost him to a stroke seven years ago, and know that he would have loved for me to have this new FoodSaver vacuum sealer. I have sealed watercolor tubes and acrylic paints and paintbrushes and other craft items so that they would not leak or spill out into other items. The uses for the FoodSaver are endless, and this is my Dream Machine for my kitchen. I bake and would enjoy sealing my cookies and sending them by mail to friends, relatives, and pen pals serving in the military in different areas of the country. Thank you for offering this giveaway to us. I hope I win!

  5. I would use the food saver for so many things. I would freeze corn on the cob, purchase large packages of meats and chicken then reseal them down to the size I want, freeze other vegetables, seal cheese in the refrigerator, seal homemade jerky and so much more. I would love to have one of these.

  6. I’d love to seal veggies from my garden so I could enjoy fresh produce even during the cold, snowy winter!

  7. I want a bigger veggie garden and would love to seal my peppers so they’d last longer in the freezer!!

  8. I would love to use this to marinate tofu and veggies. Also, this seems like a dream to store leftovers.

  9. I’m pretty sure i’d use this for meat or prepared dishes…freezer burn is the worst and I feel like i waste so much b/c of freezer burn!

  10. Our venison… We process our own so it would be great for the loins, back straps, and jerky meat.

  11. Meats because I purchase in bulk and we butcher some of our roosters. I also freeze a lot of chicken broth.

  12. Umm, food. Seriously trying to think of one thing and my brain is so not functioning. Keep wondering if while sealing if it smashes the food or if this would work for bread and cupcakes.

  13. Sounds wonderful! I’m always needing to story things so that I can bake more…and more…and more

  14. I love making crockpot recipes and portioning them out to freeze. My family can cherry-pick from our freezer at any time, which gives me more time to bake!

  15. For starters? I buy meat from a local butcher and I would like to be able to seal and freeze it – especially when he has a great sale.

  16. Meat! I would use the FoodSaver to preserve meat. We waste so much $$$ in meat that we don’t use before it goes bad.

  17. There are so many things that I want to preserve! I’d say meat & fish are probably what I lose the most to freezer-burn.

  18. I would use it to split up larger packages of meat because I can’t ever use the cheap packs quickly enough.

  19. I have to try those funfetti cookies!! Maybe with green and red sprinkles for Christmas dessert!

  20. oh goodness i would seal everything!!! all of my freezer products are nasty with freezer burn. this would be so helpful! crossing my fingers!

  21. I would love to seal slow cooker chili and other meals I cook on the weekends – for quick and easy weekday meals – after work!

  22. I feel like my meat never stays fresh in the freezer so I would love to seal some steaks, hamburger and pork chops.

  23. I have owned a foodsaver in the past but after my step-daughter “borrowed” it, I never saw it again! I mostly used mine for meats that I bought in bulk and separated into individual servings. I also used mine for soups, veggies and nuts.

  24. Cheese is a one major food item I want to preserve. The weather here is so hot and cheese seems to turn bad really quickly! Doughs and crumble would be good too.

  25. I would replace my Foodsaver of 13 years and continue to use it for prepackaged meals and bulk foods!

  26. I’d like to buy ground beef in bulk at Sams and package it in 1- and 2-pounds packages. Thank you!

  27. We usually buy a months worth of groceries for our meals for the month. I would really enjoy having this to seal the meats and dinners that I want to freeze. It would be nice not to worry about freezer burn

  28. The really great thing about a food system is the ability to freeze meat with no freezer burn! But I am looking forward to freezing dehydrated fruits and veggies, fresh fruit from our trees and bushes…and cookies! Definitely cookies! :) Thank you for the chance to win! ~Jean

  29. …Everything! I would certainly use it for meats bought in bulk, but also for sauces and soups/stews. Being

  30. I would like to use the foodsaver for preventing freezer burn on chicken and other meats I buy in bulk (when they are on sale), fresh vegetables at harvest time, and when I cook a large batch of beans. I have been wanting one of these for a long time – thank you for the opportunity to win one! :-)

  31. I buy meat in quantity, and would love to have this in order to divide it up and put in the freezer. I hate having freezer burn or ice crystals form in my zip loc bags…

  32. i stumbled across this on amazon the other day and was actually considering purchasing it since i’ve been doing so much baking for the holidays! would be great to save some cookie dough and treats for later!

  33. I would love to seal and preserve all my leftovers. This would be especially handy after Thanksgiving or Christmas.

  34. My husband wants and needs this! Chex mix. Meat when we find a good sale. Homemade soups etc. Thanks for a chance to win.

  35. I would use it for everything! Have been wanting one forever. Would make sealing meats and everything else up much better than what we use now.

  36. 13 bean Chili, steaks, porck chops, chicken with marinades, fish, berries~ pretty much everything we can freeze! Foodsavers are awesome and we could really use a new one as we are still using a first generation FS! Thanks for the chance Averie :)

  37. Baked items to send through the mail and know it would arrive fresher and of course, meats which I buy family size and divide into portions for our family of three.

  38. We buy at of our proteins in bulk. Steaks, chicken breasts and thighs and salmon steaks. This would be an ideal way to package them for freezing. Thanks.

  39. I have wanted a food saver forever! My parents have one and use it all the time. I would seal baked goods,meats, snacks for my kids. I actually seal snacks for my kids when we leave my parents house-keeps them contained and fresh-no stale crackers (or crumbs in my bag)!

  40. I like to prep meals ahead of time. For example, I will buy a huge pork shoulder and slow cook it and shred it. Then I will portion it out into half pound servings and freeze it so meals during the week are so much easier to prep. I do this with meats and veggies. It would be so nice to preserve these foods with a foos saver.

  41. I would love to use this for meat. I want to be able to preserve my food and make it keep longer, so I limit my waste.

  42. I’d seal cookies to ship them to friends and get the shipping of my new bakery business’ baked goods going!

  43. I would seal anything I was putting the freezer for later (like frozen cookies ;P)

  44. I would like to buy & preserve meat in bulk. When I see a great deal I am always sad because I don’t really have the mean to keep it frozen for a long time.

  45. I want to be able to preserve my food and make it keep longer, so I limit my waste. I also wonder how marinades would do, I assume quite well.

  46. I buy meat from my step son’s farm and would like to keep it all good for as long as possible.

  47. I would use it for fresh cut fruit and veggies, and I would most likely give it to my mom! She has been wanting one of these forever, and she too really loves having fresh produce available rather than buying frozen food items. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  48. I would like to buy meat at bulk (Costco) and freeze for just the two of us and when my kids come over be able to take out what I need.

  49. I would love this product to freeze baked goods. I wanted one so I could make my cookie dough freeze it and have it ready for when I want to bake cookies…

  50. What a nice presentation it would be to seal the cookies on the plate that I give to my neighbors each year.

  51. I would use this for repackaging meats when I buy them….and how great it would be for baking things ahead of time for events in the family. Thanks for the chance to win this.

  52. I would love to use this for meat. Right now there is nothing but aluminum foil in my freezer. Never know what I have and the foil starts ripping and my meat is always freezer burned!!

  53. Definitely cookies! I do not bake very much because it is just my husband, our 2 year old and I, and if I bake it, it will get eaten, which we do not need. It would be great to be able to freeze what we do not need to eat for a later date.

  54. Pretty much everything, but especially produce. My local farmer’s market has great deals, if you are willing to buy huge quantities.

  55. I would use it to seal meat for the freezer. I’d also seal baked goods and leftovers. I love to cook but I live alone so it would be wonderful to be able to save food and enjoy it later or share with friends,

  56. This is such an awesome giveaway! I would definitely be using this lots and lots for fruit, veggies, and jams… (once I can successfully make those) hehe :) Wonderful post, as usual Averie <3

  57. To be able to preserve food a lot longer and marinate food is definitely a plus. You can vacuum seal holiday leftovers for another day.

  58. Definitely cookies! I’m doing 12 Days of Cookies right now on my blog ( and am going to have SO many leftover cookies! This would be awesome to have!

  59. I want to seal meat. I like to have a lot on hand and being in a small city there isn’t much selection. So, when I travel to the next largest city, I usually pick up cuts that I can’t buy locally.

  60. I want to waste less fresh food so I want to save cheese chunks, portioned fresh veggies and divided up family packs of fresh proteins like pork chops and chicken breasts.

  61. I just bought a new freezer and have been filing it with all sorts of homemade goodies…..probably would use it for freezing soup.

  62. I would love to preserve fresh picked vegetables so they stay fresh and we can eat them throughout the year without freezer burn.

  63. we like to buy our meat in bulk, this would be so much nicer than zipper freezer bags, thanks, what a great giveaway! happy holidays

  64. We are a 2 person household, so it would be nice to use part of a package of meat or cheese and save the rest.

  65. I would seal/preserve leftovers, fresh fruit, purees, meat, poultry, etc. I’m thinking I would be using this machine a lot!!

  66. I buy meat from the butcher in bulk, and I’d love to have this machine so that I can package smaller portions of it. Beats ziploc bags and saran wrap!!

  67. Meat and fruits/veggies would be the main things I would use it for besides meals for my husband to take along with him when he travels for work.

  68. I’ve had my current foodsaver for over 12 years. I think I’m due for a new one. Love the vacuum containers to keep my brown sugar soft.

  69. I could see using this when I purchase meats, chicken and fish in bulk and being able to pull out small quantities.

    1. I always make double batches of quick breads and they never fit in standard freezer bags. I would definitely be using this to eliminate that problem. Plus I’ve always wanted one of these but never could justify splurging on one.

  70. I like making my own homemade convenience baking mixes (like cake, biscuit, corn muffin, waffle, etc) because I cook/bake gluten free and the commercial mixes available are horrendously overpriced. A typical GF cake mix runs about 4.50-7.00 and I can make my own for WAY under a dollar! Having this vacuum sealer would mean that I could make a ton of mixes in one day and they would stay fresh for a very long time. This would make my life so much easier!

  71. I’d like to use this machine to seal foods for the freezer; leftovers, pie dough, cookie dough, veggies, chicken, etc. I’d get a lot more use out of my freezer and would better be able to manage my food budget.

  72. I would make a double batch of everything every time I cook! Freezing one for another meal. Saving money is a priority in 2014!

  73. I would use it for meat and make-ahead freezable meals.

    Thanks for a chance at the giveaway! Happy Holidays!

  74. I would love to use this with meats that I have marinated. All I would have to do is defrost and enjoy!

  75. This looks great! I’m living abroad right now where fresh food can be scarce, so this would help me make the most of it.

  76. It is just my husband and I now and that means plenty of leftovers. This would enable me to keep the leftovers longer and make it easier to reheat.

  77. What do you want to seal or preserve with this machine? (recipe links welcome)

    raw meat..thanks

  78. I would love to seal bake goods. I enjoy sending cookies to my daughter who lives on Rota, an island near Guam, but worry that they’ll be stale by the time the package gets there. However, she said the Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies(your recipe) were still delicious!

  79. I would preserve my bananas, I use the so frequently for smoothies in the summer, but in the winter it is too cold and I try to freeze them

  80. I would like to use it to freeze meat instead of using Ziploc freezer bags and also try prepared meals in individual portions

  81. I would love to use a FoodSaver Vacuum Series to freeze meat. i could bigger backs at cheaper prices and split it up. I never thought about how many other uses like cookies and quick breads could be saved when I make more then we will eat at one time. Also, I could freeze soup when I make more then we need.

  82. I would preserve all of my dinners! Being single, it can be hard to cook big batches of food for later and not have them get freezer burn or go bad quickly. This would be a life (and cash) saver!!

  83. I always take advantage of chicken when it’s on sale, and this would be great for freezing it.

  84. I have the hardest time eating leftovers in a timely fashion, so this would be so useful for pretty much everything I make ever! Thanks for the chance to win!

  85. I have wanting a FoodSaver since we got married. I have a hard time figuring out how to shop for just two without waste. So this would be helpful to save things ahead of time and after they’ve been cooked.

  86. Cookies! I want to try vacuum sealing cookies in mason jars – I think that would make cute gifts.

  87. I want to freeze meat and meals for slow cooking later. I also want to marinate meats and for sealing leftovers. The uses are endless!!!

  88. With limited income and my love of cooking, I hate to have things spoil. But with just us two, freezing things to prevent boredom is necessary. Conventional zip locks bags and plastic containers don’t always preserve our meals. Cost prevents us from this purchase. Would help us immensely.

  89. Uhh..everything I ever make. Chili, cookie dough, quick breads, meats…it’s just two of us so it’s hard to NOT freeze items and then watch them go bad.

  90. Steak and fish!! We always buy in bulk so this would be realllllly great to have!

  91. we buy a lot of chicken and i would love to avoid the inevitable freezer burn!

    on second thought, i would seal EVERYTHING.

  92. OH my so much. Another word should be what don’t I want to preserve.
    I want to preserve Chicken and Ground beef and meals made up already and cheese and frozen foods that are half used.

  93. Everything that I put in the freezer! I always end up with freezer burn when I just use a ziploc bag.

  94. This is such a great Giveaway! I use this to store EVERYTHING lol! meat, cookies, chips (you can seal prepackaged items after opening them), you name it!

  95. My husband buys bulk steak form costco and often freezes them individually wrapped. This handy gadget will help prevent freezer burn!

  96. I’ve wanted one of these forever…I eat loads of fruits and veggies, but living alone too much of it goes bad before I can eat it.
