I purchased a G500 vacuum sealer back in December of 2015. Used it twice and it quit working . Notified company about it and they told me they would send a replacement. Received the cheapest one they offer for a replacement. Not happy that I paid almost $ 200.00 for what I thought was a very good one only to be replaced by one that they offer for $ 89.99. Feel like I got ripped off. Will not ever purchase any of their products.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
