I purchased this for keeping fruit, but I wound up using it for bread and while it worked, it was wonderful. No more moldy bread,everything stayed fresh, but the device stopped pulling and holding a vacuum after about 2 years. It is pretty costly for such a short lived product. I would not buy another one.

My family loves bananas and with this vacuum sealer, they stay fresh and ripe for days longer than if you store them in the fridge or on the counter. While it's big, it's a must have in our home. It does get condensation some times, but we just wipe it out.
I have only had the vacuum sealer for a couple of weeks and so far I am delighted with this product. I bought it specifically to keep fruit in and to save on wastage although obviously it can be used for other perishable items. I do not like eating cold fruit taken directly from the refrigerator and this item gets around this problem and hopefully will take care of the fruit fly problem in the summer. The only maintenance needed is to wipe the inside of the plastic dome every day to remove minor condensation.
This unit allows fresh air into the chamber at a rate that every 2 - 3 hours it has lost it's vacuum all together and needs to suck the inside air back out again. This totally defeats the purpose of a vacuum sealer food device. The concept of vacuum sealed technology is supposed to be that "NO" air is allowed into the chamber until such time as the unit is opened to get something out or put something else in.
I purchased this a few years ago. It worked great for a couple months and then condensation started forming inside. I noticed that the fruit was not staying fresh as long. Then mold formed inside and no amount of wiping it down with bleach would prevent it from molding up again. Perhaps if I had just used it for bread it would have been better but it was advertised at the time as a fruit saver which is what I purchased and used it for. It is far too expensive an item to last 4 months.
I love this item, it keeps my bread and danish fresh and cracker don't get stale,,,, I could not live without my fresh sealer, my husband really loves it too, it is easy to use and it holds a lot of itemsI am very very happy with my purchase,,,
