Have used the Pro-2300 constantly for the past six months, and have had NO problems at all. The previous reviewer described liquid in the vac vent and tray. You CANNOT vac seal wet items. You have to FREEZE first and then seal. This is clearly stated in any vac sealer literature. Just put the stuff in a vac bag, stand it in a box in the freezer, like a cereal box, and then seal when frozen. We have found that you can partially freeze meat, and then seal with very good results. For freezing raw, it does suction up some blood/juice, but you have a manual seal button to stop the suction and seal the bag.You just have to pay attention and be quick! NEVER let the suction pull liquid from the food into the machine. That is not machine error. That is operator error.
We freeze a lot of things! It it large, and has a permanent place on the counter! Great for resealing chip bags, too!
We keep a box of gloves, a sharpie marker and the vac bags in the cabinet drawer directly under the sealer. We are ALWAYS prepared for packaging!
I love my new 2300. I've been using a friend's 2300 for over 6 months now and he finally wanted it back. Some friend Ha! A real friend would have given it to me for life...lol
Bottom line is the machine works great and flawlessly if you use it as it's intended and designed to work. I do and have had zero problems with it. It's head and shoulders better than a Vacmaster or Foodsaver, both of which are low end low use machines. The Pro 2300 handles all my needs very well. Its simple to use and it uses any brand of vacuum seal bags. We're using it now in the middle of South Dakota Goose Season.
Buy one you'll love it...I did and I do. The longer you have it the more uses you'll find for it.
Just be careful who your friends are!...lol
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

Did some research on sealers and while there's a wide range, many/most only work for short storage. This one is an exception. A quality product that works well. One caution is that is large and weighs 20+ pounds so better to have a permanent place for it,

We have regularly used a vacuum sealer for years, but it wore out and we were looking for another one to buy. We bought the same brand as before, but did not like the design changes that had been made so we returned it. After much research we finally settled on the Pro-2300 vacuum sealer. We love it. It seals so much better and faster than our previous one. One of the selling points of this machine is that our containers and other accessories will work with it. It takes a little more room on the counter, but we use it every day so it is worth the space. We use it for making precooked meals that we freeze as well as resealing snack packages and many other things. It was easy to learn how to use. We watched an on-line video and read the manual. We’ve had it for about a month and have had no problems or complaints.
I have owned other retail vacuum sealers, and worn them out. I stumbled onto this machine on the recommendation of a well know tv show. The price was a bit over the top, but as I unpacked this unit I could see where the money went. This is a commercial (professional) grade, whatever adjective you want to apply to it, machine. It is large, I can't store it in a cabinet, it is heavy, but it is efficient and performs like crazy. I don't regret having it on the counter, I use it daily. If you have the cash and get the use out of a vacuum sealer, do it and stop buying cheap plastic junk. I'm looking forward to hitting the farmers market this year.

This is the first sealer I have used that you don't have to wait minutes between each package you seal. So far it has worked great.I would like to do a review after a year as most items fail after the warantee has expired.
