My unit works very well, the bag sealing is great & the bottle sealer accessory works very well. The cannisters & containers all fail in our house (we hand wash only). Very disappointed ... solution make them in North America with improved materials. Like many products now days manufacturing overseas is not working due to use of inferior materials or processes. Something is dramatically wrong and given the removal of most products from the from the product line, you know it as well. Hopefully a new design and/or new production facilities in North America. Concept is great but the quality problem is quickly killing interest in the product. You can fix this ... just get it done.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Both canisters have cracked

I was so loving my canister set until the larger one would not hold a seal anymore, after only a month or so, and I noticed it had cracked on the bottom. Then I noticed the smaller one stopped holding the seal and sure enough, I checked the bottom and it had also cracked. Neither was dropped or mishandled in any way and were washed by hand. I am very, very disappointed

I know you would like the canisters to hold a vac, but when they crack and you still need to use them, try placing a strip of clear postal packaging tape (the heavy duty type) on the crack and extending past the end of the crack. Your canisters should hold their vacuum and the tape will hold up to several hand washings before it will need to be replaced.
Let's hope the company finds a solution to the cracking problem. Maybe reinforcing ribs on the bottom of the canisters would work?
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have read here and at Amazon that these canisters have a problem with cracks but so far after 6 months I've never had one crack. I have about 12 canisters and most were received thru a Promotion on the Foodsaver's site. I do feel if I do get a crack I"ll just put some Epoxy on the outside of the canister and my bet is, after it dries, it will allow it to hold a vacuum once again.
Yes, I recommend this product.

POOR DESIGN OF BOTTOMS

I have purchased close to a dozen of these units; only
to see all but the smallest crack. I treat them with kid
gloves: gentle hand wash, no freezing or hot contents,
gentle vacuum cycle. None of these seems to work.
The bottom design is a very poor one.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Really like the item and the idea of them. Have several but 2 of the 50 oz cannisters have cracks on the bottom after using just once. Got them while back, can't say exactly when. I would recommend but would also warn about the potential to crack.
Yes, I recommend this product.

this product will not crack on the bottom if you don't put it in the dishwasher... it is by far the best product to keep food fresher longer... just know how to care for it... DO NOT WASH IN DISHWASHER and it will last forever...
Yes, I recommend this product.
