Costco has the low end model 2461Foodsaver on sale for $50 ($75-25 instant coupon/rebate). It is in-store only. This appears to be the same (just in black) as the Foodsaver 2461 [amazon.com] .

This is the 2400 series and has more features than the Foodsaver V2244 [amazon.com] that's $80 on Amazon.

The 2461 has speed and moist/dry food settings and roll storage - along with 5 bags, compared to the 2244. Both include one roll. It also seems (the 2460) has better reviews on Amazon than the 2244.

If you missed the really great bag/roll sale from early December from Foodsaver then the Costco Foodsaver Combo Roll/Bag Pack is an okay deal if picked up in-store.
For $31 you receive:
1 - 8inx10ft roll
4 - 11inx16ft rolls
36 - Quart bags

This is available b&m and Online with $7 shipping [costco.com].

I'm new to Foodsaver but have wanted one for a long time and this seemed like a good deal.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Was this in the coupon book? The last time I went to Costco looking for a SlickDeal on a Foodsaver, all they had was the $150 high end models, none of the ones posted about.

No, it wasn't in the coupon booklet I could see online for my store. I was surprised to see it yesterday when I bought it. I had just looked online researching things on Saturday and knew this was the best price currently.

I don't believe they had this exact model last time I was there before Christmas.

OK. Thanks. Given you're on the opposite end of the country, I doubt this will be in my store. It was the same thing last year where the lower end model didn't seem to make it to the West Coast. If someone chimes in out here I'll go check it out.

I did not miss the sale, the items I ordered just never shipped. At least not yet. I have not received an official cancellation notice yet, but now, they are offering me a 15% discount to review the items they have never shipped! For the good news, my credit card has not been charged (yet)!

would this unit be good enough for sous vide cooking?

I hate it when that happens on a deal! I had just grabbed the after Christmas Sears bubbacup deal and it never apparently went through despite confirmation emails but never a pick up notice (and calling the store they had no record).

Is Foodsaver not shipping a common occurrence?

How were you able to see it online for your store? is there an inventory link someone might have to check and see if our store has it for sell?

I meant that it was NOT listed online in any way. Sorry for the confusion!

I would think so. From the little I've read it says that Foodsaver bags are rated for it at least in the past. I'm vegetarian so I've not really seen a need to try sous vide personally Smilie

Yes, this is the model I use for all my sous vide cooking, and have been for a long time. Never had any problems (except due to own stupidity on occasion).

this model is great. much better than the stand up models with all of their 'automatic' (bag wasting) functionality. it also makes it easier to only seal a bag when you dont want vacuum (chips, cereal, etc).

great price.

yes, they market some of their bags specifically for this purpose. your bigger concern is the sous vide cooker itself, and specifically how accurate and how well it can maintain the desired temps.

I've really just had a bad experience with FoodSaver products. First one I bought broke after 2 uses(about 10 bags). Contacted CS to return under warranty, it was going to be about 2 weeks after they received the defective product, and of course I was going to get back a refurb. I didn't think getting a refurb in exchange for my 1 week old vacuum sealer was acceptable so I took it back to Kohl's where I originally bought it,where they exchanged it no questions asked.The replacement works,but I'm really not happy with the job it does.Try to suction wrap anything moist(such as chicken pieces, or beef, or pork) and it sucks the juices right out of the meat,then it fails to seal the bag because of the moisture.Have to do it 3-4 times to get a seal.You literally have to put 1-2 piece of chicken in a really large bag if you want to get it to work,and at that point you pay more for the bag than you pay for the contents. Anything dry works well,so I guess if you want to seal cereals this is the machine for you. Maybe it's just not the right product for what I'm trying to do,but I'm nevertheless disappointed with the purchase.

Edit: I have the more expensive model that stands up on it's side,V something, not this particular one.

nod. the standing ones are kind of crappy. but there are some things you can do to 'help' solve the juicy meat problem.

first check that you are using the 'moist' setting if you have one. this will pull a slower vacuum and will begin the sealing before trying to squeeze every bit of air out.

then, consider freezing any really juicy meats first. this will all but eliminate your problem.

additionally, if you have another container (like keeping it in the tray or package it came in) that will help.

another cheaper way to do this (which seems redundant but works very well) is to place the meat inside of a ziplock back with the ziplock all but sealed on one end. place this ziplock bag in with the partiallly opened side facing the bottom on the bag. all of the air will get sucked up from the foodsaver bag and the inner ziplock bag without the juices escaping the ziplock.

Some people have pre-frozen items with juices before vacuuming to prevent juices from being sucked in. - Oh I see previous poster made same suggestion.

Great suggestions.I did think of saran wrapping the meat before suction wrapping it,but at that point, I just put it in the freezer saran wrapped and don't bother suction wrapping it.
