Summary of Amazon Customer Reviews

Negative Reviews:

The most helpful critical review gave the unit two out of five stars. The reviewer purchased it after having given a different model away and found they were not satisfied with the new unit. It would stop working and required ten to fifteen minutes of cool off time after trying five times to seal a bag. When the reviewer contacted customer they were told that it would do that after attempting to seal bags eight to ten times.

The reviewer, also, felt that the pre-made bags were a waste of money and the roll to make the bags at home was a better option. The double seal was not recommended since they had experienced problems with gaps letting air in requiring the bags to be resealed. Another reviewer found that approximately an inch of the bag was wasting as a result of having to cut it after the seal was made.
