FoodSaver cannisters/accessories??

klseiverdApril 5, 2013

Couldn't resist a BIG messa FS cannisters at Good Will today. At LEAST a dozen items for around $10. Couldn't put under a microscope but figured it was worth the $$. I really like the cannisters for vac sealing dry stuff that doesn't necessarily go "bad" but will go stale... like crackers, chips, cookies.

One of the large cannisters ended up with a HOLE in it... RATS! Oh well... knew batch was "as is"... will use it as a make-shift "cloche" when I plant herbs in 3-4 weeks.

A lid for a smaller cannister was missing that little rubber button/gasket... salvages from lid to cannister with hole in it!

There was a "universal" lid (fits jars bigger than wide-mouth masons) and a square "marinator"?? Both have a dial on top that indicates things like vac/seal/open... but neither have a place for vac hose to go in??

Two of cannisters have lids with center buttons that say "press"... again, no place to vac??

Anyone familiar with these??

I don't have the system, but I love a bargain! Evidently you need a separate lid/jar sealer to which the vacuum hose connects--it fits over the cannister lid. I found a demo on Youtube--not sure if it's the info you need:

Here's another interesting demo, for those times when you want to keep your kids busy ... or when the apocalypse happens. ;)
