Rated 1 out of 5 by cindylouwho22 from Seal problems Unfortunately, they do not consistently hold a vacuum. I've cleaned all the lids and containers multiple times, press very firmly when sealing, yet after a day or so, the button has popped back up. I can't recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anne65 from right size for quick marinades Using vacuum to marinade gets the flavor into the meat quickly and tenderizes faster as well. The square box fits easily on the refrigerator shelf for storage as well. Cleans up easily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rsugar from Does not maintain seal Bought 2 of these for dry food storage and the lids require a lot of strength to lock in place. Once locked I used to Freshsaver to seal to container. The "dimple" would show that the vacuum was pulling out the air but about 30 seconds after sealing the air would leak back in through the release button which did not hold a seal for either of the 2 containers I bought. Attempted to make these work for a couple weeks but no success. Intending to return for a refund. Total waste.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jend from Not dishwasher safe Do not buy these containers unless you plan to hand wash them every time. I have only put them in the top rack of the dishwasher and they all come out with cracks, which prevents them from sealing. I have also had lids crack just from sealing them. They look nice, but are poor quality. Use mason jars or the bags.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jjjj13 from Loses seal often Had the canister set for a few years, eventually they all cracked. Thought I’d try this as a replacement. Basically it’s hard to use. The lid seal is small, and just doesn’t hold a seal well, often within hours, the vacuum indicator is popped up. It’s not enough to push the lid on hard, then seal, you have to push down on the lid while sealing for it to hold. Makes me wonder why they would put a vacuum indicator on it instead of a much better lid seal. The canisters were much better, they should have just strengthened the bottoms that were prone to crack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Claudette from Great liquid saver Bought the 10 and 8 cup Fresh Containers. They are perfect even to store my soup and sauces. I've included a photo of my soup in the 10 cup container. I know many people are asking if they can save liquids in bags. A good choice is in containers. Hope this helps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by squashfordave from They develop cracks. I have all the different sized containers and like all of them except for the 8 cup. I have a number of them and they all develop cracks after using a few times. The others are fine. I think that they need to make the walls slightly thicker, or add an inside horizontal bar, which will keep the walls from giving in too much during the vacuuming process. The good news is that they can be saved. I have bought food safe silicone adhesive to apply over the cracks and it has prevented the containers from leaking. You can buy them at your local DIY mega stores. Just make sure that it says 100% silicone and you'll be fine. I was concerned at first that it would prevent me from being able to stack them, but it hasn't been a problem and it saved me fro having to throw them away. You can microwave with it and put it in the dishwasher as well. The silicone may lose its luster after washing, but that doesn't affect the performance. I can't, however recommend this size until they fix this problem, but the others are great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mac7256 from Seal doesn't last I have purchased several of the food containers but the sealing ability does not last especially on the larger containers. I have cleaned the valve mechanism but to little avail. I love your system and have owned three sealers and other containers and loved them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by lkmashek from Will not hold a seal. I bought a set of these over a year ago and they would not hold a seal. Pulled them out again last week and thought I'd try again. The seal will still not hold more than a couple of hours. They're pretty to look at but not much use if they won't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BevA from This really does keep food fresher! I’ve been unhappy that in regular store produce containers my spinach starts getting slimy bits within just a few days. As an experiment, I filled this Fresh Container with fresh baby spinach, and used the spinach from the store container. I’m now on my second store container of spinach, and the spinach in the FoodSaver still looks as good as the day I sealed it up more than 9 days ago. The jars work well, too – I sealed up strawberries – but the size and shape of this container is great for dividing up family portions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bkf11 from Great product I recently purchased the 8 cup FoodSaver Fresh Container. My family loves boiled peanuts but they do not stay fresh in the refrigerator long enough for us. I tried putting them in the 8 cup container and sealed it, when we opened it a week or so later the peanuts were just as fresh as day one. Love this new container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by menace from new Foodsaver cantainers I bought sever of these and i like them much more than the round ones. These take up less space and are stackable both empty and vacuumed. If the vacumm fails it just need some maintenance to fix. Remove the green cap and push top from the lids then remove the rubber seal and wipe it and the lid under it clean then reassemble. Its like sticking a band aid on a dirty arm, dirt prevents glue from sticking to the skin same principle here only with whatever dust is in the container getting sucked up breaking the seal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bob6956 from Fresh Salads We bought these over a month ago to try to get more life out of our lettuce for salads. We would buy a large bag of ready cut salad at GFS and it was always going bad within a few days. We could never get halfway through a bag before it was bad. These containers had changed that, we open a large bag of lettuce now and take a couple servings out and fill four of these containers with the rest, only once was the last container starting to go bad when we got to it. The expense was worth it, saves on salad, saves on extra trips/gas & time to the store!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dubman from will not hold a seal after a few months mine does not hold the vacuum. I only use in to store homemade granola & store them above my kitchen wall cabinets away from heat & sun light. Of all of their container products the only one that I can keep working are the vac seal zip lock bags!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Saskatchewanobie from Preserves Foods And Saves Me Money Amazing FoodSaver system has changed my kitchen life... I bought these raspberries, buy on get one free, so double amount for price of one... I could have never kept fresh for more than a few days and what a waste as they spoil quickly. With the FoodSaver Vacuum sealing containers these will be perfectly fresh for up to two weeks... what a great invention and now I can buy food in quantity to save money too...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tiamia from Good concept. Terrible results. If only they kept their seal, they would be excellent. If you don’t intend to seal them, they are a good way to store and stack, if you don’t care about the cost. The adapter that attaches to the hose, does NOT keep a seal. It will sometimes seal the container. However, in a very short time, it losses the seal. They need to improve the adapter that you use for the hose on the Foodsaver Vacuum machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMVinAZtucson from This may become an add-on, to EVERY purchase... FoodSaver had such a great sale the other month, that I decided to add this to the "cart" in order to get the (free shipping). These NEW 'Fresh Containers', are WAY BETTER, than the older model containers with the white lids. (5 decent size sandwiches) were made and sealed, to cover the week. I ate them for breakfast, and was planning on them getting me through a 5 day work week. Every morning I grabbed one out, then vacuumed them immediately and back in the fridge. Here is the kicker- I ended up, being called for work, to another city for a week, after eating the 2nd sandwich. I thought there would be NO WAY, they would still be edible when I returned 9 days after originally making them... They were fine, they smelt fine, tasted fine, and I actually ate the last one 13 days after I had made them. I will be purchasing several more of these in the future; They seem to be the perfect size, and really hold that vacuum seal. I'm looking forward to also trying the 10 cup 'Fresh Container' for Spinach or Mixed salads to start. (buyer, not free tester)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momma S from Love it!! The NEW FoodSaver 8 cup Fresh Container has not made it into my cabinet. I'm finding myself continuously placing something else in it. I'm to the point where I'm wishing I had another one. I placed strawberries in it on Valentines day and the stayed fresh and very firm until almost St. Patrick's day. I love to keep spinach in the NEW FoodSaver Fresh Containers as they keep it for weeks from getting all slimy. Love these products, well worth the money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Snafooo from Not Worth The Money or Time I went all in on these containers and bought over 15 of them, costing me a pretty penny. And now, very few of them will hold vacuum, if I can get them to vacuum seal at all. If I can get them to vacuum seal, the vacuum is gone by morning. They also take up too much space in the 'fridge. Don't buy them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eve408 from FoodSaver Got some of the containers a month ago, it does keep things fresher than ordinary containers, but it did not last more than a week for my peppers. :( So if one expect this to last in the fridge longer you will be disappointed. Other than that it is a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cookie Wench from I purchased all the sizes and they are fantastic! Love them - they are so much nicer than all previous models and seem to hold the air out better than the others. Greater benefit is that they are stackable. Absolutely would be lost without my FoodSaver containers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mbrown from Great concept It's a very well made container. However, I have difficulty keeping it sealed. I need to check them everyday in my pantry because the "dimple" frequently indicated loss of its vacuum.
