Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money or the time lost missing with When you take the Sealer off the jar the lid will come off as well. I tried eveything I could think of. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Concept, poor execution. I purchased this regular-mouth jar sealer as part of the kit that included the wide-mouth sealer and hose. This review is based on my experience only. The wide-mouth sealer works nicely with no issues. If you can get by with only using wide-mouth jars then do so simply to avoid this product. The Problem: The design of the regular-mouth jar sealer differs from the wide one. The rubber gasket on the regular one is a different shape. Its inside walls, the ones that make contact with the jar lid, are practically vertical, versus the outward-angled walls of the wide-mouth version. It also does not have a sufficient outer-lip (only seen if removed) to hold it in place inside the white-plastic sealing cap. Even if the rubber gasket was redesigned to match the one in the wide-mouth version, the white-plastic sealing cap does not have a sufficiently-sized gasket-lip retaining area. Since the regular-mouth rubber gasket is lacking in mass and heft, it is easily pulled from the plastic cap—as contrasted with its bigger sibling. Both of these aspects lead me to suspect that under a vacuum it can become more-easily distorted or dislodged, disrupting the vacuum pressure. When this happens, the jar lid does not seal and gets stuck inside the white-plastic cap when you remove it from the jar. The weak retention of the gasket is further evidenced by the fact that—if you do get it to work—the gasket always gets pulled out of the white sealing cap and transfers itself to the jar or just falls out. If you just use it normally—start the vacuum process by, in my case, holding down the FoodSaver machine’s lid for a few seconds to create the initial vacuum, then stop applying pressure and let it complete the process—it can seal the jar (about half the time) with two caveats. 1. the gasket is always pulled from the plastic cap; 2. all/most of the air was not removed from the jar and the resulting seal is very weak, allowing me to easily pull the lid off the jar. The Rant: Both of these issues are very easy to correct. This is a no-brainer. It is astounding that this product made it to production. Simply using the two sizes together for a very short time would reveal this issue. It tells me that they never fully tested this product themselves, which is hard to believe. It tells me that they did not conduct proper focus groups to test these products. If FoodSaver did any of these things then the issue would have quickly arose. Who designs two identical products… differently? One that works all the time, and one that doesn’t. And then proceeds with expensive tooling, mass production and promotion of these products. The Semi-Hacks: I’ve tried the multi-lid approach and it usually works. Just place another lid—I place the second lid facing the same direction—on top of the first. It does create a stronger seal. The gasket will still be ripped out of the cap when you remove it from the jar. Another method I use is to extend the vacuum by pressing the proper button on my machine for a few more seconds and then—just prior to the machine finishing/stopping on its own—I pull the hose out of the white-plastic jar sealer. This seams to create a greater, more intense vacuum/pull. Of course, the blue-rubber gasket always gets displaced onto the jar or falls onto the counter. Extending the vacuum without pulling the hose from the cap results in mostly failed attempts with the gasket and lid just tumbling to the counter. I suspect there are other hacks, but one should not be required to hack anything. The Plea: I like FoodSaver products. I don’t like writing negative reviews. I’m only writing this in the hope that FoodSaver takes heed and does the right thing, which is to make the simple changes required to make this product shine, as it’s a great concept that suffers from poor execution. However, this issue has been around for a very long time, so I wouldn’t hold out hope. It’s a real shame. Just build it right in the first place, FoodSaver, and bask in the glory, as opposed to having your name cursed while using your products. Where are the marketing managers and directors? The Verdict: As it stands, I cannot recommend the regular-mouth jar sealer, although I recommend the wide-mouth version wholeheartedly. The fact that FoodSaver knows there’s a problem but refuses to make things better leaves me scratching my head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jar Sealer I received the wide mouth jar sealer with my original food saver (the white which is no longer available) years ago....! I honestly only used it now and then back then. I am now using it fairly frequently...and I absolutely LOVE it!!! Grapes...they last maybe a week, possibly a little longer just sitting out which means you have to eat them fast or risk throwing them out. Sealed in a jar in the fridge, they last easily 3 weeks or more...of course I seal lots of other foods as well...just used grapes as an example.....I am running into a slight problem though, one that is easily remedied....I NEED a regular sized sealer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Regular Jar Sealer The Regular jar sealer is great. I can reseal my jars with so many products! I had the larger sealer, but the regular size I use more. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing but trouble Super excited when my jar sealer arrived, didn't take long to ruin that. Vacuums jar just fine, everything looks great..... Until you try to remove the sealer. Stupid over-sized rubber seal pulls lid of EVERY TIME.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inadaequate instructions Product works well-instructions are inadequate-a simple illustration may help to understand how to seal
