    Default Rival Seal-a-meal V106

    Anyone have one of these? Would you buy it again?

    I've had satisfaction with Rival products in the past, though haven't
    needed anything of theirs for years.

    If you don't, FWIW, sells for ~$50.

    TIA

    I've had a few 'Seal-a-Meal' (SaM) units over the years. I liked the
    previous SaM vacuum sealer (I forget the discontinued model #) I had,
    but it 'croaked' and was replaced at no-cost by Rival with a model
    VS230. IMNSHO, Rival has very good customer service.

    The one feature of the current SaM VS230 I dislike is its 'footprint' on
    the counter is too large. Oh, another feature of the VS230 that's
    absent is there is no way to 'manually' seal a bag. If the vacuum
    doesn't reach a certain point, the unit simply will not seal, forcing
    the user to abort the task or start all over again. This often happens
    when the bad is 'custom' sized with additional seals lines.

    Otherwise, I'm very happy with it, and I hope to always have some sort
    of vacuum sealer on hand, anywho ;D Most likely, I'd buy another Rival
    if it was easily found. HTH.

    A lot of their production has moved overseas,
    with the inevitable consequences. I have one
    of the last U.S.-made Rival crockpots, and I'm
    happy with it. The Chinese-made crockpots were
    subject to a big recall.

    I don't know the particulars of that. I have a Tilia FoodSaver (vacuum)
    that I like and I have my trusty 3M bag sealer (not a vac sealer) that I
    wouldn't be without. I seal spaghetti sauce and soup broth in the bags,
    label them, freeze them flat and then set them on edge in a box for long
    term storage in the freezer.
