great review. You've got me motivated now.
We actually received one as a gift (gulp) two years ago and haven't even opened it. It's not the game saver model but same brand and can do the small quantities.
I just haven't opened it as I really wasn't sure if I'd use it- I've been cutting/wrapping our venison for years- but after reading your article, I'm going to give it a try.
That is iif I get a deer this year...if not, I'll just preserve Krispy Kreme's I'm sure.
