Food vacuum packing machines (eg Tilia foodsaver): do they work?

I'm curious whether folks use a Foodsaver (available for $100 on Amazon for example) and whether they think it materially changes the shelf life of their foods.

Here's why I want it: I am starting to have someone to come and do food prep (both basic chopping as well as complete dishes) once a week. It would be very helpful to know that anything they do will keep for at least a week... so that they don't need to come twice. While something like the Foodsaver guarantee a week in the fridge? Or is it really only ideal for freezing?

Are there things that don't work well in the Foodsaver?

Are there other brands people like?

thanks.
