I have a Tilia Compact II from Sam's Wholesale Club, two years ago it was $159.00
and it works great. I put blanched veggies in the bag, vacuum seal them, and they
last for more than a year in the freezer with no freezer burn. There are several
places on the Net that sell vacuum sealers and you might want to scout the newsgroup for several days to see what is out there.
