The NEW FoodSaver® GameSaver® Titanium Vacuum Sealer

Initial Review and GIVEAWAY!

FoodSaver GameSaver Titanium Unless you’re blind, you’ve noticed how popular in-home vacuum sealers have become in the hunting community.

They’re everywhere. Every big-box outdoor retailer is fitted with sealers, attachments, bags, add-ons, and gadgets for them.

To be honest, for a long time I didn’t get it. Several years ago, we had a vacuum sealer and I wan’t impressed. I don’t really remember anything about it other than that it wasn’t great. I remember we spent a whole Saturday afternoon trying to use it to put up a deer I’d killed and it was a mess. The vacuum wasn’t strong enough to fully empty the bags of air. The seal was inconsistent and temperamental. The bags were too thin and a few ripped open in the freezer when things got shifted around. We got rid of it, and went back to butcher paper and hand-packaging and didn’t really think about it again.

So, when FoodSaver® offered to send over a GameSaver® Titanium Vacuum Sealer for us to use this hunting season – I wasn’t very quick to take them up on it. I did some homework, read some reviews, and researched their newest offering quite a bit before I agreed to share it with you all here. FoodSaver Game Saver Titanium   The NEW FoodSaver® GameSaver® Titanium Vacuum Sealer is night and day different from the cheap vacuum sealer experience I’d had in the past. There are dozens of ways people use their vacuum sealers, but for me – my primary interest is to preserve the deer we kill and butcher as a family. I want something that will keep several deer on ice for months, and still preserve freshness as much as possible. I’m glad to finally have one that will stand up to lots of processing and still perform.

Some Advantages of the FoodSaver® GameSaver® Titanium Vacuum Sealer:

Double Vacuum. The vacuum on this thing is powerful. Like, I’m looking around my house for stuff to stick in a bag and try to crush powerful.

High Volume Sealing. The GameSaver® Titanium boasts 100 consecutive seals. That’s a big deal. If you’re trying to butcher a deer and find yourself  having to stop and let the heating element cool down you’ll quickly get frustrated. I’m excited that this unit has solved that problem!

Double Sealing. There ‘s also an option to run a double seal on your bags. This will be super handy to help prevent any wrinkles and snags that might cause the seal to be compromised (something our old one struggled with).

Durability. The quality of the machine is obvious, and there’s a solid feel to it the minute you take it out of the box. I was impressed. The lid is hinged well, the buttons and levers all feel solid and sturdy. That’s a great thing when you’re hands are bloody and slippery during butchering – trust me.

Size. This thing is big. Bigger than I expected. In the past, I’ve had to separate roasts into multiple pieces to make them fit into the vaccum bags, but with the new 15″ size option with this unit, I think we’ll have a lot more options to use the game saver for even our biggest cuts of roast.

FoodSaver GameSaver Package All in all, I’m pretty impressed with the new GameSaver. I’m going to be posting a lot this winter about our home butchering process, tools, and tips and I’m looking forward to having the GameSaver in our toolbox. There will be more on this beast of a vacuum sealer coming on RusticMan soon enough.
