Finally Bought a FoodSaver

I finally broke down and bought a FoodSaver Monday night. A V1085 at Costco for $129. Came with the set of canisters, some bags, and a couple rolls of mat'l. Also bought a bulk box of mat'l.
Used it Tuesday night to Vac seal some (bought in bulk) chicken breasts.

Yes I know I should have done it long ago. But I sort of like eating a whole pork butt in one sitting. Kidding.

Go to Sam's or Costco, but the whole ribeye which you can get for about 6 bucks a pound sometimes. Ask them to slice it to your preference.
Bring it home, vac pac 'em and freeze em. You can save big bucks this way. My local stores sell ribeyes for 9.99 a pound. You can save around 30 bucks for every 10 pounds.

Yep! They can pay for themselves in no time when you buy in bulk

Thought I would calm down the BB with a little FoodSaver talk. mm:
I think some of us could use it.
Not me, I don't give a shit.

So, is the one I got any good? I wish I would have bought one a while back when they were on the Amazon Friday Sale. I think it was like $89.

Their site, www.tilia.com , doesn't show the V1085, only the 1075. Larry bought one last month and his wasn't listed either. I don't get it. At least yours can be found with a google search (Larry's couldn't). It's a good unit if you compare using the 1075. Many people on TVWB have the 1050 (myself included) and it's great!

Yeah, mine looks like the 1075, 1200, and 1205. It's white and 'brushed chrome' instead of black and BC like the 1200 and 1205.
Seems to work well so far.
