Sorry, but I HAD to laugh when I read your post! Why? Because that is something that I would do!!

Since I am planning on buying one within the next month, I have already started thinking about all the stuff I could seal!!

Has anyone out there tried using the food saver to preserve flowers?? Such as a corsage?

Question

Does anyone out there have a Kenmore Food Vacuum System?

Just ondering as DH & I went to Sears this past Saturday. Even though I wanted a Food Saver from Wal-Mart like the one my SIL and niece have, DH just had to have one from Sears like he saw in an infomercial!

Well, when we got to Sears, they didn't have any like he saw on the infomercial! (why am I not surprised!) They did, however, have one that is supposed to be comparable to the Food Saver. But to me, it did not look very sturdy or durable. I am just wondering if looks are deceiving in this case.

Sears did have the same Food Saver like I wanted to get, but they were a little over $ 40.00 higher than at Wal-Mart!

We went to Wal-Mart to get a Food saver but they were sold out! (just my luck!) I just decided to wait til I go back to Wal-Mart later this week rather than going on to another Wal-Mart!

So, if anyone does happen to have one from Sears, can you "fill me in", so to speak?

TIA!!!!

I never thought about sealing anything but food but you guys have it fingured out. We go camping a lot and my sealer would be great to seal things up so they don't get wet. If I did it right then I could even pack the small clothes and stuff. Thanks for the idea. Now when my husband comes home I can have all kinds of stuff sealed up!!!!!!!!!

Do you have a Kolhs?

They are offering the 420 for $99.99. IF you go to a small Walmart they have the smaller unit but if you go to the superstore they have the 550.

Making bags

I bought what I thought was a a box of bags it was a box of to make bags and I am having trouble getting a seal at the bottom when I start the bag. I guess you would have to see what I am doing wrong but just in case does anybody have an idea. I think I am following directions but I have only made one bag.

Hi- I seal one end of new bags all the time.
Place the open edge of the bag on the inside front edge of the machine- close the lid & press start. That's the way to also seal your bags of ships,cookies,cereal or anything else store bought to keep it crisp & fresh.
I think you are probably placing the bag too far inside the machine. It must be on the very front edge to work. Keep trying.
If you got a video with your purchase, look at it again & see if it gives you a better idea how to do this.
Don't give up!
