Customer opinions: - A lot of the customers are pretty satisfied with the product and are quite pleased with it. The use of bags, rolls and canisters is equally done. However, there is a big segment of customers who are not too impressed with this product. The food saver V3840, too, like other vacuum sealers has the disadvantage of wasting too much of the packaging material. It is not able to always sense the bags especially if it has put in the sleep mode. However, if the sealer woken up before use, it is then able sense the bags correctly. Most customer have problem with the placement of bags. They feel that better placement can be done manually than what is done by the sealer. The food saver scores on appearance and value for money, but loses out on ease of use. There is no doubt about the fact that the food preserved using this product stay completely fresh for a long time. but sometimes the wastages and difficulty in usage can overpower this quality of the sealer. Customers would also prefer if the speed of vacuum was a little faster. There have also been complaints about the product losing its functionality within a very short period of time.
The reviews about this product are mixed. There are many features which are liked by everyone for example, its space saving design, bag holder at the top, retraceable hose etc. But the biggest flaw is in the amount of packaging material it wastes. If this can be somehow improved, this product will become the best.
