FoodSaver Automated Vacuum Sealer

Product information

The Food Saver FSFSSL3840-060 automated vacuum sealer keeps food fresher for up to 5 times longer. For simple and convenient food storage, the Food Saver helps you avoid food waste and provides fresher, more flavoursome meals for you and your family.

With its streamlined vertical design, the Food Saver will sit on your worktop without taking up valuable space. Simply put your food into a bag roll or accessory, and then insert the opened end into the machine. The unit will automatically detect the presence of the open bag and start the vacuum process.

The Food Saver will then adjust the vacuum speed depending on the moisture level of food, in order to ensure that liquid is not removed. Once the system detects that all the air has been removed , the bag is then sealed. LED indicators keep you informed of the progress at all times. Once all lights on the system are out, you can remove your freshly vacuumed and sealed produce.

Your food can then be stored in the fridge, freezer or pantry. It can be boiled in a pan to re-heat or cook, or placed into a water bath for Sous-Vide cooking. Food within the bags and rolls can even be defrosted in the microwave.

The Food Saver also has a Canister & Marinator mode. The canister mode allows you to vacuum seal larger items. Simply attach the hose to the accessory, the Foodsaver will then vacuum the air out. The Marinator mode works on a pre-programmed setting for 10 minutes. This function will marinate and infuse food in minutes rather than hours using conventional marinating techniques. (Marinator accessory not provided with product).

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really efficient product First unit had a fault which prevented the machine form opening to clean the 'drip tray'. However, with the usual John Lewis efficiency the unit was exchanged and new unit has been found to excellent at ease of use and results. Cost of accessories (depending on what you want to prepare) can drive overall cost up. However, the 2 year warranty gives peace of mind 03 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product Shame About The Sticker So excited to receive my new vacuum sealer but very disappointed to see a huge sticker right across the front of the product. Have spent over 20 minutes trying to get it off without scratching the smart front. Why does the manufacturer think this is necessary it only tells you how wonderful the product is, not essential safety info. Really took the shine off in more ways than one. 10 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really handy product Looking at keeping food fresh in BBQ season, I came across 'Foodsaver' - vacuum packing food to keep it longer! Great little bit of kitchen tech, looks clean and cool doesn't take up much precious surface space and easy to use. Marinate meat in 10-15 mins instead of overnight - very handy for those fussy eaters. Leftovers, packed down with no air and in the fridge! I've got some 'canisters' and a sandwich box too which keep bread nice and fresh even in summer (I'm sure they'll do lots of other stuff too). Great service as always from John Lewis, but little bit of a pain is I couldn't buy accessories from them, I had to get them from Foodsaver website. I've also found that packing meat into the canister and vacuum sealing overnight really tenderises the meat, bonus I just wanted it to be fresh, but this really worked well on minted lamb steaks. 15 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Food saver This is a fantastic product for sealing things like cheese especially my Parmesan so that it will keep for up to 8 months and batch cooking lovely meals for instant heat up 13 August 2013
