Additional Information

The FoodSaver® FM5400 Food Preservation System keeps food fresh up to 5X longer (compared to ordinary storage methods). Plus it’s easier to use by taking the time and guesswork out of bag making and sealing, and provides the 2-in-1 versatility for freezer, fridge and pantry storage.

The FM5400 System incorporates NEW features like the Express Bag Maker that reduces vacuum sealing steps by 50%* because it pre-seals the bottom end of your next bag each time. The Vacuum View Window allows you to see where you seal, giving you better control during vacuum sealing allowing you to reduce the roll waste up to 30 percent*. The Lower Seal and Cut Bar design allows you to use your countertop as your work space, providing ease and convenience for making custom-sized, ready-to-use bags automatically and the easy-access Open Roll Storage keeps track of bag inventory, so you always know when you're running low!

The FM5400 System also combines the 2-in-1 functionality that is unique to the FoodSaver® brand. It combines a powerful upright vacuum sealing system to vacuum seal bags for long-term storage in your freezer, with an integrated retractable handheld sealer to vacuum zipper bags and containers that keep refrigerated foods and pantry items fresh and delicious.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings... I so wanted to love this machine. I've had it a couple weeks now and have not found it as easy to use as I'd hoped. At least 30% of the time when I press with my thumbs on the bar that is supposed to activate the vacuum nothing happens and when I let up the bag falls out and I have to start all over again. I am also finding that many times the machine will vacuum but never stop and seal, which I have to try again, or seal manually, allowing some air to escape. When I can get it to work right, it's great. I use it to create single portion meals for the week for myself. I just wish it would activate more easily, and would finish sealing after vacuuming more often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have owned four foodsavers in the past. This unit is by far the best one yet. I would have given it 5 stars, but gave it 4 because of the drip pan. If it gets full, getting it out without spilling takes some skill. It is at a tilt and hard to get out. I love the seal and cut. It does save on bag material. The vacuuming feature is outstanding. I can lift the clear window and place the bag exactly where I want it, pull the sides taunt and lean on the vacuum bar when ready. It prevents sealing over folds. I love this feature. I haven't searched for a cover, but definitely would buy one for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unsure Have had for a couple months. Glad I didn't give away old one yet. Like how you make bags and seal and measure but then it seems to fall down. Doesn't vacuum as well as my older one and doesn't vacuum and seal the split bags at all. That's a majority of what I use. Even tried separating them and doing 1 side at a time and it wouldn't seal - just sat there and vacuumed. I even let it go for 2 minutes to see and would never seal. Finally hooked up the old one everything did fine. Seems like if you only use the rolls and only certain sizes, it will be fine. Still working on it but may unfortunately have to keep 2 machines.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product but short cord [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Foodsaver is fantastic! The bags are really easy to make although I did find that you had to use a large amount of material even for a small amount of food. The system really does keep food fresh just like it claims. I think it would be perfect for families who buy in bulk at club stores. My only real negative for this unit is that the cord is very short. Perhaps this is for safety reasons but it also limits where you can place the unit. I got this product as a sample to review and I'm not sure I would have kept it if I had bought it just because of the cord length.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Example: Great features! I have owned 3 different style Foodsaver units over the years - with the oldest model still working - loved each of them and looked forward to improvements, must say that this particular model I have disliked since I purchased it new about 2 years (ish) ago- which (my own fault) didn't return - I kept trying to use - don't like that I seem to have to put something under the food to get it even with the sealing mechanism in order for it to work and it often doesn't. It isn't like I have had no experience with the system. wouldn't recommend this particular model and am looking and purchasing a different one

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design I bought this a little over a month ago and tried to keep giving it a chance, however the design is terrible and makes the process extremely frustrating due to the fact that you have to try to hold your food bag in place and press the bar which you seem to have to press just right. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Then it tends to only remove part of the air, or will start the vacuum process and release after 2 seconds. I have watched tutorials and read the directions, but still hate the design and wish I would have just taken it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I pulled the trigger After doing over a year of research and watching countless video's I settled on the FM5460. This appliance has already saved me money the first month with keeping our food fresh just by not having to drive 40 miles round trip to the store out in the country. My wife loves to be able to go to the freezer and see thru the bags on what she wants to cook for dinner. The pulse system is one of the best features for our family and that equals fresh sealed bread and cookies. Having a daughter in college that visits on weekends we can seal a bag of goodies to take back with her. Most of the good reviews that you have read was spot on about the FM5460 so it's so hard to add.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strange Design and Finicky The ergonomics on the FM5460 leave a lot to be desired. You make bags on the bottom and seal the bags on the top, which may be great for moist or wet items, but fails when trying to seal two servings in a single bag. You have to lift the bag up to vacuum-seal, try to keep the servings from sliding together, and press the START bar. You need three hands! I see this as a machine targeted for a small market segment and not at all practical if you package multiple servings or use smaller bags. Or only have two arms. You may like it. I sent it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Ideal The FM5460 operates perfectly - vacuums and seals quickly, both the base unit as well as the handheld sealer, with little waste in bag usage. However, I feel that the design suffers with having to hold the bag so high up to insert it into the window. It's difficult to have several items, such as pork chops, stay in single layer position when at such an angle. Lower machines have the advantage of the bag being supported by the countertop. I solved the problem by turning a 13x9" pan over so the bag could rest on that for support. That's my one disappointment with this model.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could have been excellent This is my third Foodsaver. This machine is so nice for making bags but the vacuum is 4-inches high and when the food is in the bag you insert it in the vacuum and you are to press a bar under it to start the vacuum and seal. I find it impossible to hold the full bag straight in the vacuum and press the bar at the same time. I have to use a 4-inch box to set my bags on. This is poor planning especially for the price. Also the sealer for the refrigerator zip locks has a hose that retracts but feels cheap. Makes me wonder how long it will take for it to stop retracting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Pleased!!! My previous Food Saver that i had for 2 years finally wore out! I use it just about every day!! I ordered the newer model and was so excited to receive it and resume saving food & money again. I also received bonus containers & ordered extra items. There's not enough time to give examples of what I used my machine for. Being single for some time I no longer cook for large family, but buying things in bulk, portioning servings and vacuum sealing is just awesome. Protecting important documents, sealing cooker meals to take camping are just a few examples. It compliments my other kitchen gadgets!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is the third FoodSaver we have owned. That's not because of any problems but because we either wear it out or give it away to one of our family. This newest model is the best one we've had yet. As with all the other ones, the new one works great. I love the fact that I don't have to seal the bottom of the bag after it comes off the roll. All of the food we vacuum seal lasts much longer weather it is fresh or frozen. we also are able to reseal bags that products come in. You can either vacuum seal them or just seal fragile things like potato chips. We would highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is fantastic! I bought this a couple of weeks ago. I keep it handy on my kitchen counter and have sealed leftovers, onions and garlic (no more smell in my refrigerator) and have used it to break down larger packages of meats into individual servings and freeze. Makes it so convenient when I only want to pull out a certain number of pieces. With all my Christmas baking coming up, I have even pre-measured sugar, brown sugar and flour and sealed into specific sizes so all I have to do is grab the size I want (i.e. 1 cup bags, 2-4 cup bags, etc.). This will help my holiday baking go so much smoother. I love it more each day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Received this as a birthday gift from my wonderful brother. Absolutely love it. Using it to vacuum seal lettuce and other veggies in 1/2gallon mason jars. It's been two weeks, lettuce is still green and fresh. AMAZING! Leave FoodSaver on my countertop and using it daily with zipper vacuum seal/reseal bags to store cheese, lunch meat, etc. Have vacuum sealed and frozen, sausage, bacon, and chicken, I can see where food willl stay fresh longer and save us money. Love it and would recommend it for any size family.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is our second machine in 15 years, and it is not nearly as good as our first. This sealer was to have been designed by really inept people without production skills. Complicated, difficult and hard to understand the logic associated with its use. They are so un-proud of it that these is no model, stock number of identifier and the unit, just the name food saver. I have told several people that the sealer does not meet the standards of name and I can not recommend this unit. To add insult to injury they have just reduced the price a bunch, oh well good products don't last forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food Saver in general I bought an early model (not sure if a Food Saver or not) about 20 years ago. I used it quite a bit and was very delighted with what it could do. I used it enough over the last 15 years that it fially stopped working. :( I am now ready to purchase again and will buy a Food Saver brand. As a side mote the first thing I sealed were two sponges and lo and bhold---Still Sealed!! Also I found that when sealing raw meats I partially freeze it so the juices are close to frozen but not quite. Doing that prevents the juices from being vacuumed out of the meat. Sale day at the grocery store means food and MONEY saved. Be sure to date your sealed bags. Absolutely Love the Sealer I had. Worked as advertised and we saved a Lot of money. Highly Recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally awesome machine I have used vacuum seal a meal machines for over 30 and food sealer is the best. My old food saver has gone to a friend and still works well, I wanted an upgrade. For years my husband and I put up venison, and the meat is still fresh a year later. It's better than having a locker put up the meat for us because we can see the meat through the bags. Keeping that extra loaf of bread fresh on sale day is easy. It is as fresh as the day I purchased it. There is nothing so easy as bagging items out of the garden, running the harvest through the food saver and having fresh food in December. No homemaker and kitchen should be without a food saver sealer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the new features Over the last 30 years I have bought the next up grade to the Food Savers systems. Living in Alaska and being a fishing family we have vacuum sealed and frozen many a fish. I bought this new Food Preservation system because of the new feature of having the next bag sealed. I have found that I don't waste as much bag material as before and it is quicker having the next bag sealed already. I love the feature of the manual vacuum, I now feel like I can vacuum pack soft items without having them crushed. I would recommend this product and looking forward to experimenting with the marinating feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food Saver "The Best of the Best" The food saver brand is top of the line in my opinion. We have the smaller version which we bought at least 15 years ago and still works very good. The FM5460 is easier to use with the cutter incorporated in the machine. Does not take as much time or space to do the job and it is perfect for what we need it for.. The pulse vacuum control is also a fantastic design I found it very helpful while sealing the softer meats and food. Also the drip tray is a great idea, nothin gets into the vacuum system... If your in the market for a vacuum food saver this is the only one to buy..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and looks great on my counter! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had the opportunity to use this wonderful machine a few times since I received it. I was always skeptical of the Foodsaver machines, but after using this, I'm hooked. This one in particular has great features. My favorite features are the bag makers and the rapid marinate mode. Both save time for me, and you can't beat that. Also it helps that it looks great on my countertop. The quality and features of this machine hooked me into using this all the time! I did receive this machine as a product sample to review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Major Upgrade I have owned FoodSavers for years now and have been happy overall with it. But, then I saw this new model and had to have it. And am I glad I did. They didn't just change a couple of minor things and change the appearance. They rebuilt it from the bottom up and I can't believe how much they improved it. It's truly a new machine that is even easier to use. If yours is starting to get old and needs replacement, get this one. You will be very happy with this new machine. I'm glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No bag waste! I bought this for my mother in law as an early Christmas present to seal the wild game during the hunting season. She is more old school when it comes to the food saver and appears that all the new features are a bit complicating but I love the new features. I also have a stay on the counter version but mine uses up a lot of bag due to where it places the seam. This one is phenomenal! it's as if you purchased the bag already made. This is a major plus along with it getting the next bag ready. I have not used the jar or bottle accessories and probably never will but I do use a marinater and this is awesome as well. Can't say enough. Great buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. I have been using the food saver to cook sous vide. It has been relatively easy to use, although it can be challenging when using it to vacuum marinated meats or vegetables and when using it to vacuum meats with bones that make it more difficult for the bag to line up evenly when it is inserted into the vacuum chamber. The only downside is that I went through the provided roll of regular bags and the pre-made regular bags. Was wondering whether the bags with the moisture strips can be used to cook sous vide (with the moisture strip positioned outside of the waterbath. Once I get my bag refills, I plan to use the food saver to freeze veggies and fruits from the farmer's market for later in the year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FoodSaver I like the two separate sealing areas - one for creating the bag and one for the sealing in of the product. I like the viewing area where you place the bag to be sealed. This ensures that there is enough material to make a seal. I feel like I am not wasting as much of the material as I did with my older model. I have not been happy with the sealing of anything even slightly moist. I have used the paper towel method, but even that doesn’t allow for a good seal. I liked how our older model would automatically switch to the ‘moist’ option.
Date published: 2021-02-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Love everything about this FoodSaver Sealer. My only suggestion would be to have the capability of keeping the type of food you are sealing DRY or MOIST set so you don't have to set it at every seal. If I'm sealing meat I have to remember to set it to moist for each piece. It would be easier to set it when you turn it on each time. I have forgotten to set it after each seal, and it automatically defaults to dry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design I bought this and am very unhappy wwith it. I should have paid attention to the issues folks have with the design. It is difficult to balance and correctly align the loaded bag four inches above the surface. I've used Foodsavers for years and am glad I didn't throw out my last one (which is quite old and needs coddling) as this one goes back tomorrow!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Keeping an open mind I previously owned a 2000 series refurbished as I did not want to invest alot in case it set in the closet until the next church yard sale. I loved it! The only thing missing was vacuum override to seal before crushing food. I decided to purchase the 5460 model for pulse vacuuming. I sent my 2000 to my daughter and several times have wished I had sent her the 5460. Several reasons: bag storage is nice, cutting blade is good feature but I like to double seal and this one requires seal, open, pull bag a small amount, close seal. Pulling out the bag can be difficult because sometimes it sticks to seal gasket. This machine requires you to start the vacuum process then override to get second seal. Have tried just seal button but get nothing. Since you can stop the vacuuming by hitting seal to avoid crushing bread, etc. the pulse vacuum is really not a needed feature in my opinion. Liked the 2000 because you hit seal and sealed. The design looks nice but would rather have sealer lower to counter. Holding the bag where it needs to be and starting the vacuum process can be a bit tricky if you have physical limitations with your hands, also using more bag material. Like retractable wand for vacuuming bags and containers but it was very hard to separate the tube(was afraid I would end up breaking it.) Just little comments: would never have bought a bottle or jar sealer so including them for me was not a big deal, also coupons included had a 20% off on a machine. I just bought one so again useless. I will keep the machine (I used the box to ship my old one lol) and will update my review should my opinions change as I use it. Love a foodsaver for preparing meals ahead of time, making bulk purchases. Do wish they would have more kinds of rewards and not be out of stock on so many. I am giving my honest opinion as it stands now and I purchased my machine it was not given to me to use and review. Hope this helps. Sometimes simpler is better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from "Floating" vacuum & seal is difficult to use I bought this to replace our 10+ year-old FoodSaver, which stopped providing an adequate vacuum. I like the fact that the hose for bags & containers is attached and readily-available. I quickly found that it's pretty much impossible to keep portioned items such as patties separated when using this model, because the vacuum/seal section is too high off of the counter. Everything slides to the bottom of the bag, which causes everything to clump up when frozen. I tried putting the bag on another container to bring it level, but the bag kept slipping out. In the future, I'll pass on any of the models with a floating vacuum/seal section.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Choice We are not new to the FoodSaver line of products. This model by far is our favorite choice. The design of this model allows you to reseal very close to the edge so waste is minimal. I buy in bulk from a local restaurant supply house and I cannot imagine not having the convenience of this machine. Our favorite model for sure! The photos I shared say it all! Some tips I would like to share...when wrapping any type of ground meat, flatten the package as best you can for easy and quick defrosting. Purchase divided plates and create meals. Buy veggies when in season to cook and portion. We buy in bulk from a local restaurant supply house. I purchase a ten pound box of pasta for pennies a pound and shrink it into one pound bags. Same with rice, sugar, and bread crumbs. The coolest deal is a 40 pound case of chicken breast for under $1.20 a pound. We grind it and freeze it in two pound bags. Chicken burritos and chili on demand! We are a large family. All our kids are grown with families of their own. They come "shopping" in my house and grab stuff all the time. Having any FoodSaver and an upright (we have two) or chest freezer is a no brainer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have no clue why I waited so long - Great Choice I researched far too long, I spotted this model FM5460 and was leaning for months while I "looked around" and I simply should have jumped on it during one of the sales! Simply the easiest to operate, not much counter space required and you don't have to scramble for bag material because it's always inside. You WILL NOT be disappointed!
