Product FAQs


Can I use a bottle stopper on a full bottle?

To prevent liquids from being vacuumed into your FoodSaver®, we recommend that the liquid be 1" from the top of the bottle.

How do I remove a bottle stopper?

To remove the FoodSaver® Bottle Stopper, simply twist and pull up on the bottle stopper to release the vacuum.

The FoodSaver® bottle stopper will not vacuum

Check bottle stopper to see if it fits snugly inside bottle. If it is loose, air may enter and prevent it from vacuuming properly. Examine neck of bottle and tip of accessory hose for food materials. Any gaps can prevent bottle from vacuuming properly. Make sure the accessory hose is securely in the accessory port on the appliance and on the bottle stopper. Note: For all accessories, make sure accessory hose is completely inserted into appliance and lid of accessory. Twist gray tab on the accessory hose while inserting to ensure a tight fit.

What are the bottle stoppers used for?

FoodSaver® bottle stoppers are the best way to keep wine, oils and non- carbonated bottled liquids fresh longer. You will keep their delicate taste fresh by minimizing exposure to air.

FoodSaver® bottle stoppers are not to be used with plastic bottles. Also, do not use with any carbonated or sparkling beverages. Carbonation happens under pressure. A vacuum removes this pressure, releasing the bubbles and causing the carbonated or sparkling beverages to become flat.

What other kinds of jars, cans and bottles can I use for vacuum packaging?

FoodSaver® universal lids allow you to vacuum package many foods right in their original containers such as thick glass jars and metal cans. This is a great way to store pasta sauce, salsa, applesauce, fancy mustards, gourmet sauces, dessert toppings and coffee.

However, if the container is thin plastic or glass, the draw of the vacuum can make the container implode.
