If you are looking for a great way to save yourself some much needed finances, the best avenue for you to use without having to make any significant investments is in how you shop and store your food. By simply making a wise purchase in a reliable Foodsaver, you can make sure that you buy your groceries in bulk which is much cheaper and at the same time, you can save on your leftovers instead of having to throw them away. While this might seem like small baby steps, the results that they are able to achieve is significant. A good foodsaver that you could opt for that could give you these and better results is the Foodsaver V3240 vacuum sealing system and it has plenty to offer.


The most intriguing feature about the V3240 is the fact that it comes with a starter kit that comprises of a 1 roll, 3 heat seal bags and 2 gal heat seal bags. These not only save you some money, but it also allows you to get started with your vacuum sealer as soon as it gets home. The sooner you are able to start, the sooner you start saving up.

On top of the two vacuum speeds that you can select from, the machine also comes with a manual operation. This offers the user flexibility in their use and allows them to seal more efficiently depending on the kind of food that they are sealing. It also makes the unit more effective.

To allow for optimal sealing and better service delivery, the Foodsaver V3240 also has moist and dry settings. This ensures that if you are dealing with foods that are rich in liquids, you have better chances of having a successful seal and the same case applies when you are dealing with solid foods say like meat.

Meat and stew are not the only things that can allow you to save on money. You can also bake cookies and other pastries and save them for breakfast. However, with the conventional vacuum sealers, sealing such delicate foods will mean that they are reduced to a powder and are less attractive this way. The V3240 comes with a feature known as the CrushFree Instant Seal. This ensures that your delicate foods are not crushed to a powder or a pulp and you are able to eat them in the same form as you cooked them.

To make the sealing much easier and more convenient for you, the vacuum sealer comes fitted with roll holder and a bag cutter. These give you a much easier time while sealing and makes the machine more user friendly. There is everything to love about the Foodsaver V3240.

Other features that are part and parcel of this particular model include the extra wide sealing strip to accommodate even the larger bags. A removable drip tray for easier cleaning and an accessory port and hose.


The unit is efficient easy to use and effective in its operation with straight forward controls that make it easier for one to operate the unit.

It is compact and appealing allowing it to fit with almost any theme that you might have going with your kitchen. It will also save you mountains of space on the counter while still remaining useful and a great asset in your kitchen.

It has almost every feature that you would need for a painless sealing which includes the roll holder, the bag cuter and the different manual settings that you can use.

It is a great addition to a medium sized family and definitely saves you a fortune.


The bad side to the V3240 is the fact that it is quite expensive and for those that might be working with a shoe string budget might find it quite costly. However, it is worth the effort that you might make to save up and buy it.

The quality and build of the product is slightly subpar. Even though this does not really affect how it is able to work, it does look a little low quality compared to other models and brands.
