We were handed down one. We use it to pack and freeze meats before the summer cruise and I repackaged several spare parts with it too. I have mixed feelings about it though. If some items are going to be kicking around for a while, the plastic bags can wear a hole in them, then there goes your vacuum.

I planned on re-using the bags several times but the wife wasn't too keen on re-using bags that had raw meat in them, so we compromised and we didn't re-use them.

We quit bringing it with us on our summer cruises. I'm not sure whether we'll bring it along or not when extended cruising though.
