Food Saver vs. Seal-A-Meal? [Moved from Home Cooking]

Will Owen | | Sep 25, 2007 04:50 PM

I intend to get one of these devices before too long, and have been looking over several threads discussing them. I've only seen comments about the Food Saver brand, though. Target has both, with the Food Saver priced at just under $100, the larger of two sizes of Seal-A-Meal units at around $70, and the smaller at $40. I've already decided against the little guy, but I'm wondering if the Food Saver is really $30 better than the similar-sized Seal-A-Meal, or if it's just a marketing thing. Anyone care to address this?
