  • Automated Foodsaver Vacuum Sealer V3840

    The most intelligent vacuum sealer we’ve seen yet, the FoodSaver Automated Vacuum Sealer will not only prolong the life of your food by vacuum sealer, but it’s space-saving design also means it won’t take up all the room in the your kitchen. With a stylish brushed stainless steel front, it is also smart enough to sit on the worktop without looking out of place.


    This vacuum sealer saves space in two ways. Firstly, by vacuuming air out of the special bags, they take up less room when stored. Secondly, its upright profile gives it a small footprint on your worktop.

    Simple Controls

    So simple to use, it senses what’s in the bag and selects the correct function – just place the bag in and it will know when to start and stop. Food is kept fresh for so much longer than usual – when we sealed a bag of popcorn, none was crushed and, a week later, it was still crisp and tasted just as good. It also has a separate sealing level for moist ingredients, to ensure none is spilt.

    Built-In Accessory Hose

    To make your vacuum sealer even more versatile, this one comes with an integrated hose, designed to remove all the air from FoodSaver’s range of containers and canisters. This lets you store more food than ever in vacuum sealed containers, to ensure everything lasts as long as possible and minimising waste.


    • 2 sealing levels for dry or moist foods, with auto liquid detection
    • Automatic bag detection – knows when to vacuum or seal, plus seal-only function
    • Bags are freezer and microwave safe and can be boiled for reheating
    • CrushFreeTM instant seal – prevents crushing delicate foods like bread and pastries
    • Features built-in accessory hose, roll storage and cutter, integrated bag opener and dishwasher safe drip tray

    Includes 3 x 940ml bags, 2 x 3.78 litre bags, a 28cm x 3m bag roll, a 700ml container and a bottle stopper.

    Refill rolls available here.

    "FoodSaver good, cutter not so."

    The vac/seal function and the vacuuming of FoodSaver jars, etc is excellent. Just one problem, when the bag is cut from the roll, the cut edges curl inwards, forcing the effective edge too thick to enter the sealer slot. Sliding several times, left and right gets the bag in position reasonably easily for the first seal, rather more difficult when food is contained in it for the vac/seal action. I found my own answer to this - ironing the bag with a *warm* iron takes the curl out. Lack of choice of bags? I'm trying buying direct from Foodsaver. They have quite a range on line.

    A note from the team

    Thanks for placing your review. Having cut the bag from the roll if you then roll the bag the opposite way (ie from side to side|) that will help iron out the edge.

    "Brilliant Machine"

    Very pleased indeed with this machine, just bought it today and have spent the afternoon happily placing food out of the freezer into new air vac bags, really easy to use and I am now a happy bunny.......

    We are using this both for food storage and for cooking sous vide. This packer is great, and the vertical style means it takes up little space in our utility room. The plastic waste that others write about is a bit of a nonsense. The nice big flap of plastic is very useful for pegging the bag to the side of the pot when cooking sous vide.
