FSFSSL3840-060 Vacuum Sealing System
What is Vacuum Sealing?
Oxygen and moisture in the air causes food to degrade, leading to a loss of flavour, texture and nutritional value. Conventional storage, such as plastic wrap and ordinary containers, contribute to the problem by trapping air inside. FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System removes air, preventing it from coming into contact with your food. Our patented technology is proven to extend food freshness up to five times longer.
FoodSaver™ FSFSSL3840-060 Vacuum Sealing System: Fully automated vacuum sealing system which keeps food fresh up to 5 times longer.
Upgrade to the most premium and feature-rich FoodSaver vacuum sealing system on the market. This simple-to-use automated vacuum sealing system allows you to vacuum seal your food. Your food can then be stored in the fridge, freezer or pantry. It can be boiled in a pan to re-heat or cook, or placed into a water bath for those into their Sous-Vide cooking. Food within the bags and rolls can even be defrosted in the microwave.
The FSFSSL3840 FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System has a stylish design that will fit all kitchen designs and work surfaces. Its vertical design configuration allows it to sit on your work surface against your wall, without taking up valuable space.
Hands Free Operation
Turn the FSFSSL3840 machine on, simply put your food into a bag roll or accessory, and then insert the opened end into the machine. The unit will automatically detect the presence of the open bag. The auto bag detection switch will then start the vacuum process. The auto liquid detection device will then adjust the vacuum speed depending on the moisture level of food, in order to ensure that liquid is not expelled from the food. Once the system detects that all the air has been removed , the unit will automatically prepare the internal double wide sealing strip to turn on and seal the bag or roll. All of this process can be followed by the LED progress light. Once all lights on the system are out, it is suitable for you to remove your freshly vacuumed and sealed produce from the system. All of this process has been achieved without having to press any buttons on the machine.
Some food produce is delicate and may not require the air to be removed from the bag, roll or accessory. For these instances the FoodSaver FSFSSL3840 vacuum sealing system has an instant Crushfree™ instant seal feature, which will seal your food instantly. The double wide seal keeps your food fresh due to the airtight and watertight seal produced on the bag.
Canister & Marinator Mode
The FoodSaver FSFSSL3840 Vacuum Sealing System not only works with the provided rolls and bags. The integrated retractable accessory hose can work with the additional FoodSaver, Canisters, Marinator, Lunch Boxes, and Bottle Stoppers. Simply attach the hose to the accessory and press the canister mode on the unit. The unit will then vacuum the air out of the accessory, keeping the produce fresh up to 5 times longer. When using the marinator, press the marinator mode which works on a pre-programmed setting for 10 minutes. This accessory and function will marinate and infuse food in minutes rather than the hours using conventional marinating techniques (Marinator accessory not provided with product).
Built-in Roll Storage and Cutter
This FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System has an integrated storage area within the unit for the FoodSaver roll provided, along with an integrated bag/roll cutter. Use the roll to make different-sized bags for items which do not correctly fit into the standard-sized bags. These items could range from a whole fish to smaller and more intricate items. Simply measure out the size of the bag needed cut to length with the integrated cutter, seal one end, place food into the new sized bag, and then vacuum and seal as usual.
As an expert in food storage, FoodSaver™ vacuum sealing systems and accessories will help you save money, avoid waste and provide fresher, more flavourful meals for you and the family. As the originator of consumer vacuum and sealing system developed back in 1987 by Hanns Kristen, since then we have been helping keep food fresh up to five times longer for the family cook, the bulk buyer, passionate cooks and the cost-conscious consumers.

+ Looks classy: stainless steel front. Has earned a permanent place on the kitchen counter.
+ Superb build quality. (The build quality makes it surprisingly heavy; I'm so glad this was delivered to me at home). You may wish to compare and contrast with my review at http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R1M5I8R3IPNU50/)
+ This is a BIG improvement to the previous design (which I have also reviewed - I gave it a 1-star and returned it for a refund) because you have to hold the top of the device down, until the motor kicks in. This is SO MUCH EASIER.
- fairly loud when it's sucking and/or sealing. (I guess it needs to be. It doesn't seem quite as bad as Seal A Meal VS108 Vacuum Food Saver Sealer, a model which I returned)
- The front slot is quite thin. You have to be quite dextrous. (Design-wise, it has to be)
On refelction, the above are fairly MINOR grumbles.
** It comes with a roll so you can make custom sized bags **
There's a built in guillotine type cutter, so you can cut the material to the desired length.
Bag "waste" is a factor. A couple of inches around the periphery seem like they are 'wasted'. I guess it's just the way the product works; still, I feel like I'm wasting money. (I'm still using the 'free' roll that came with the device). This made me skeptical and I initially gave the device 4-stars.
However, after a couple of days' use I'm revising that to 5-stars.
I bought a large block of mature cheddar from the supermarket. I usually keep it in a tupperware box or clingfilm, to try and keep it air tight. It would always dry out, no matter how expensive the allegedly airtight tupperware boxes are.Read more ›
From one bizarre intro into the central pros and cons paragraph - this is a fairly expensive tool, and should really only be purchased by those who will readily and frequently use it, or by those with enough money to not care about using it. This is clearly a professional device and will serve those who need to store a lot of food extremely well. It really is a solid device and, easy to use once you get over the initial fear of performing a self amputation, and it certainly does keep your food agreeable for an unnaturally long time. It looks great in the kitche, it has plenty of fancy lights, and it makes a satisfying zzzzbbrrssooop! when using. My main con is that it is massive. I wasn't expecting it to be so big, so when the hunch-backed postman appeared breathlessly at my door begging me to rid him of this burden, I was pretty shocked. My wife was none too pleased that we would have find space for such a brute. So before buying, make sure that you know where it will be stored, and be prepared to shuffle some other devices around to make room.
Overall an essential purchase if you have the money and genuine desire to use it.
