FoodSaver FM5200 Review
The FoodSaver FM5200 is the latest vacuum sealer from FoodSaver. This model comes with all of the great features FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer are known for with a few improvements. It features a revolutionary new vacuum sealing window allowing you to see exactly where you are sealing the bag and reducing the amount of bag waste. It features on-board bag roll storage area and a built in cutter and sealer, that reduces the amount of time it takes for you to seal a food item. It features both wet and dry food modes, allowing you to marinade meats making your meals taste better. It features a removable drip tray that allows you to catch any excess liquid from the sealing process, making cleanup a breeze. The drip tray is also dishwasher safe so you can keep things clean and hygienic. This model also comes with a retractable accessory hose, allowing you seal ZipLoc bags, vacuum seal containers with a vacuum sealing connector. If you're looking for a vacuum sealer that has all of the features you're going to want and that will last in your kitchen, this is a model to consider and our top recommendation.If you've ever used another FoodSaver model, you may have gotten used to the automatic bag sealing process, where you just inserted the bag the machine grabbed hold of it, and automatically started the vacuum sealing process. This model requires you insert the bag where you want it to seal and then press down on the seal bar with the back of both of your hands. It takes a few tries before you get used to the process. It's not as easy to use as the automatic sealing machines, but it does cut down on the amount of excess bag you waste, which ends up saving you money in the long run. Like all of the FoodSaver models this unit can be noisy when you're using it, you can't comfortably talk over it when it's running. It's 18" x 10" x 10" so it is going to take up a bit of space on your countertop. These are minor negative issues none of which should be a deal breaker for most people.
If you're looking for something that's a higher quality product and don't mind giving up some of the convenience features look at the Weston 65-0501-W it's one of our highest rated models.
