Will this vacuum/seal food items I put in my Ball jars? Model # V3425 FoodSaver

If you have a larger vacuum canister, you can put the mason jar in the canister, put a used lid on the mason jar, cover the canister and vacuum the canister. Push the button to let the air out of the canister and then you'll find the lid to be vacuum sealed on the mason jar. If you don't have a used lid, put a new lid in very warm water for a few minutes and use that. I'm told that a twist off jar such as an olive jar or a jelly or jam jar can also be sealed that way. Don't seal anything perishable, of course.

If you're still wondering about using other bags, I would say yes. My mom gave me her bags that were in storage unit for YEARS (I would say mid 90's) they worked just fine with my new food saver.

Can this be used witih Mylar bags?

answer 1
The bags for this machine are designed for vacuum packing. Foodsaver bags are specifically designed to allow air to be channeled out of the bag. You'll find that the machine will not work well with a bag that is smooth on both sides. You can buy a sealer for Mylar that is specific for the product.

The instructions that came with mine says that you can reseal Mylar bags, such as potato chips, etc.
