Let us use the time as best we may.
I have a food saver brand and been abusing that thing for years packaging venison and repackaging bulk food. It does have the jar adapter but never used it.
Try your local BJ's, that is where I got mine.

I see this is a zombie post, but if you're still in the market for one, I haven't seen this one mentioned.
I love my VacMaster VP112S Chamber Vacuum Sealer
I have a couple food savers that are pretty much relegated to jar sealers since the day I bought this about 5 years ago. I can best describe the difference as moving from a big wheel to a bicycle. It is just in another level.
That being said, while it can do things above and beyond a vacuum sealer:
- it can also be a counter space hog
- it is as loud enough to be annoying when actually running the vacuum chamber (not quite as loud as a food processor)
- it costs about $600 (4x or 5x what a food saver will cost).
I think the only time I have even touched my old food saver was to use it as a bag cutter or for the vacuum attachment for jars. Overall I would rate it a 4.5 out of 5 and a foodsaver about a 3.
It looks like the modern version is the VacMaster VP210 series and VP320 series and they run about $1000 now.
added a link, but my post count isn't high enough to do so. Keep an eye on fleabay or an amazon sale for these things.
