FoodSaver® VS3197 Multi-Use Vacuum Sealing & Food Preservation System, Stainless Steel is rated 1.3 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse machine ever! I previously owned a foodsaver from about 10 years ago that worked well still but I had the bad idea to downgrade for the new model they had at Costco and give my old one to a friend… worse Idea ever!! I am now stuck with a huge pot of spaghetti sauce that I was planing of freezing and that new machine won’t work! I have attempted 20 times for the machine to just vacuum and seal a bag without having to press seal myself and it never worked! I am seriously wondering how company can try to improve a machine and simply make it worse and think it’s ok to sell it to consumers who trust their products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating and annoying I bought this model to replace an older model. As all other reviewers has said, this is a bad choice. It does not fully vacuum and the contents are still in a bit if air. No matter what I do, I do not get a complete vacuum before the thing seals the bag. I will be returning to Costco and I am very disappointed with this. It is a total waste of time and money. DO NOT BUY

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed and Frustrated I bought the VS3197 from Costco a couple of months ago to replace my older model that I had--and loved--for many years. I really, really dislike this newer machine. It's very awkward to use, and wastes an incredible amount of bag because of the way the lid swings down. Because of the awkward design, more often than not there is air remaining in the bag, which defeats the whole purpose of the air-sealing system. I'm totally frustrated and regret buying this product. I will change to a different brand now that I finally pitched this one where it belongs--in the trash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too expensive for the quality Despite the negative feedback, I purchased the vacuum. I thought it would be fine, but unfortunately, all of the comments are correct. Maybe the company solved the problem, but no. There is no way to completely vacuum the bag (you could probably achieve better results with a bowl of water and a Ziploc). I tried different content and positions, and I am very meticulous.  I would probably return it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a mess! and expensive Given as a gift, to help preserve single serving meals. Tried to use this with a stew. Used the moist setting and could not after repeated attempts get the vacuum cycle to extract much air from the bag. Seems to work ok with dry foods, but that isn't what Im trying to freeze.
