[Costco] Foodsaver Food Preservation System (FM2010-033) $69.99

Since picking up my Anova Sous Vide last month, I’ve been on the hunt for a vacuum sealer to get started. Didn’t want to spend a lot and was searching for something under $100. Found a bunch on Amazon but never pulled the trigger.

While searching for some beneficial nematodes of all things over at Costco, I stumbled across the FoodSaver Food Preservation System for $70. It’s pretty no frills, but appears to do what I need it to do. No moist mode, so you’ll need to freeze whatever it is you’re sealing ahead of time so it doesn’t make a mess and mess up the seal. Looks like it’s also all in for vacuum seal so I probably would try to seal delicate foods if your concerned about it getting crushed.

Anyhow, main trigger for me to jump on this is Costco’s warranty and service which I’ll take any day over Amazon. From their site:

I think it's been at that price since at least boxing day?

It's a good price but too bad you weren't here for the London Drugs deal during boxing week, 30 dollars for a similar unit!

Definitely a useful tool for sous vide cooking :)

I found that same thread though it was marked as expired.

Anyhow, it’s there now, same price for months or not I guess but still cheaper than most places and has the Costco warranty.

I got one of these during the $29.99 LD Boxing Day special. I got it for sous vide but I eventually found out you don’t need a perfect seal for sous vide. I just squeeze out as much air as I can out of the bags.

I got one from LD also a few months ago but for those without a time machine, this is good also. Plus, it’s from Costco like the OP says.

Up until now, I've been using standard Ziplock freezer bags and it works just fine with air displacement also. That said, I'm planning to do a leg of lamb, bone-in, so I had been on the search now for something that can allow me to use a roll to seal.

I saw the London Drugs deal when I searched. Wish I had the foresight to go for that.

Really enjoy having a Foodsaver to use with my Anova Sous Vide. Perfect for freezing portions of pre-seasoned meats that can go straight into the water bath from the freezer. Only wish I bought one years ago!

The model I have from Costco is higher-end than this one with the separate vacuum attachment. I've never used it however, so a regular model would likely be just as useful.

Probably could have just gotten away with this model here.
Yup and with the cash save have gotten $70 worth of protein.

Just ordered this one as our 13 yr old one is done. Requires to much pressure on top while sealing.

I will take this deal, cheap enough w the bags and I don't have a time machine:)

Ziploc bags are fine but vacuum sealed bags are incredible and can keep meat good for 2 years in the freezer

I loved my foodsaver before the social isolation but even more so now. I can go weeks without grocery shopping and the meat tastes fantastic!

I bought some from Amazon a few years ago and now I'm definitely running out. I do have a couple of Foodsaver rolls and bags (from Costco, they go on sale every now and then).

I have an automatic upright vacuum sealer, similar to the higher end Foodsaver one. One thing I hate about the upright version is that you cannot effectively just seal the bag without vacuuming. When you do get it to work, you end up having to cut a bag a few inches longer than you need. Sometimes I have a need to do that and I just cannot get it to work. I recommend the traditional sealers like this one.

I also got one for sous vide but I find that I use this way more for non sous vide applications (just for storage). I recommend it for all users.

120' (two 11"x60'). A friend told me I shouldn't bother with 8" bags.
I started using TINVOO branded bags in December of last year and am not really impressed with their quality compared to other brands (like freshlocker). Too many randomly lose their vacuum over time for some reason. Not sure if they are just cheap and too thin so they become easily punctured or what, but I probably wouldn't buy them again once I run out.

Thanks for the review. Anyone have other suggestions for less pricey rolls?

Thanks for this. Freshlocker was also on my list. I guess I was a little mislead as both TINVOO and Freshlocker say they are 5 ply so I figured it was apples to apples.

Yeah I am not sure what the issue is. They don't really feel too different than freshlocker, but I know previously to these TINVOO bags, I was using freshlocker branded ones and never had a single issue in the 100 pack I went through.
With the TINVOO I am noticing after like 1 in 5 will lose it's vacuum over time for some reason.

I use regular ziplocs for sous-vide and it works fine. I do make sure the opening doesn't go under the water too though
