frustrating

Cons: bag sensor is junk
Model Number: 4800
"An old adage tells us not to pray for patience because God will test ours until it is learned. This Foodsaver model was built for that purpose. It automatically senses the bag when inserted in the vacuum slot and starts the pump and then seals the bag. The frustrating thing is that the bag sensor does not work well at all. I tried several ways to insert the bag thinking that I must be doing something wrong. Instructions say to insert the bag with the curl downward. I slid it back and forth and in and out. It works sometimes but never on the first try.
Once in a while it senses a vacuum and starts to seal the bag when it is obviously still full of air. There is a cancel button that stops the process so that you can save the bag but you have to be observant and quick or you will miss the opportunity.
When it does detect the bag and grab the edge and pull air it seems to work well. It makes a slightly wider seal than previous models which is nice.
However the hassle with the auto sensor makes this model a pain in the patootie. Do not buy.
