I never mind answering questions and am happy to do so but most of the time, when there’s a question about something on the blog, a Google search will reveal loads of information . . especially for those a little more anxious for my response. Obviously I spend way too much time on the computer but I’m really not online, available for answering questions 24/7 so a little patience is always appreciated.
The Jar Sealer is an accessory purchased separately for the FoodSaver. I think most any model will work with the jar sealer. The model I’m currently using is a V2830 which I’ve had for a couple of years and it’s apparently no longer available. Except when my husband moves to Texas and leaves me behind to
do all the hard work sell the house, I use my FoodSaver almost every day for something. I haven’t been shopping much but I think I’ve seen FoodSaver supplies at Wal-Mart and Target so they may have the actual sealers too. Kohl’s Department Store had them and they have great sales and coupon deals.
About the jar sealer, there’s one for the wide mouth jars and the regular mouth jars and they’re sold separately. Jars are filled with whatever you want to place in them, the lid is placed on top of the jar. The white plastic sealer is simply placed on top of the lid. A vacuum hose is attached to the sealer and one end is poked into the hole on top of the white plastic accessory shown above and the sealer is activated to seal the jar.
Pretty simple and if you already have the vacuum sealer, the accessory takes up almost no room at all. I like that!
