Any alternatives to FoodSaver?

Miss Needle | Jul 7, 2009 12:45 PM

I'm on my third FoodSaver, and it's about to go kaput again. I've had this one for about a year and a half. My last one I've had for about two years, and my first one I've had for about a month. I've been reading reports about it lasting anywhere from a few months to seven to eight years. I don't think I'm mistreating my machine -- all of my other appliances last for quite some time. But I just don't seem to have good karma with my damn Tilia FoodSaver.

I'm not willing to shell out the big bucks for a super duper commercial one. But I'm willing to pay a bit more (up to $400) if it will last me about 10 years. Any recs? And as I use mason jars more than I use the bags. So it must have an attachment for the wide mouthed mason jars.
