From: "Jim Garlits" <Snip> not <Snip> Vacuum Ball/Kerr/Mason canning jars using standard dome lids and Tilia FoodSaver with canning jar attachment. Come in both standard and wide mouth sizes.

I'll add my amen to that! We have some small Mason jars, larger Ball jars, and ONE Kerr. I'm trying to move everything into the small Mason jars because they store and stack much better than the larger, and they are about the right size for my attention span (I'm ready for a change pretty quickly). One of the best investments we've made in awhile. We have had a ton of folks over during the World Series and two of the women ordered Tilia units on-line from here last night! Once you see the thing doing its thing you really can grasp the immense amount of things it can be used on. We also have a BUNCH of the canisters (can be purchased from ACE Hardware) for storing grains and flour - we have a REAL bug problem down here.

Tonya, The Tilia IS the Foodsaver Vac. They are the manufacturer. Bob Trancho <Snip> homeroast mailing listhttp://lists.sweetmarias.com/mailman/listinfo/homeroast
One and the same!

That's for the 1050, anyway. I think Mike McCoffee found the ProII model at a good price on eBay. BTW, Tilia *is* FoodSaver. -- Rick homeroast mailing listhttp://lists.sweetmarias.com/mailman/listinfo/homeroast
