The one thing this is quoted as being designed for, "80 consecutive seals," is what it is the worst at. The entire reason for this to exist is to be heavy duty, however in all aspects it comes short.
This system over heats, has a VERY slow suction motor compared to MUCH cheaper models from Foodsaver, and takes 2-3 times longer to seal any food item compared to the "cheap" models from Foodsaver.
Another MAJOR flaw is the locking mechanism, the first unit I tried, it failed within a week, the second unit got wobbly after two weeks. This will no doubt fail on all models, after a reasonable use time, compared to older models I have that have lasted for several years with no problems.
The reason for 2 stars, is that I love the built-in cutting feature to easily measure bags out for different food sizes, but for every other function that this provides, please do yourself a favor and skip it. If you really want to give it a shot, Amazon has a great return policy so you won't have any risk.
