Hey all, so today Amazon is having some sale prices on FoodSaver vacuum sealers (about 50-70 off on a bunch). Since I don't have the books handy to see what the recommended one was, I was wondering if you all could help out. Just looking for a recommendation here. I will be using it mostly for sous vide cooking and not so much for storage, and if there is one up there that can do marinated food as well, thats a whole lot better.

You can see their recommendation in the gear guide
Most of the non vacuum chamber are equivalents. Unfortunately for marinating, compression or infusion you need a vacuum chamber machine which is much much more expensive. If you only want to cook, especially for low temperature you can even skip the vacuum machine and go with ziplocs and plastic wrap.
