    Considered it but up here larger bags are almost $30 for 32 bags. Too much for something to throw away after one use.
    So many recipes, so little time

    I don't know how and why, but when I cook Japanese rice in my modern cooker (one from here: https://cozyhousetoday.com/best-japa...ooker-reviews/), I can leave it for 5+ hours after I cooked it, and it still will be as newly cooked. Of course, if it will be closed. So it works kinda food saver, and the taste is delicious as hell.

    I've had one for many years, don't use it very often, so I'll let others comment on brands, durability, etc.
    There are rolls available that would probably accommodate baby backs, not sure about the wider spares.
    For whole slabs, of either type, I wrap in plastic wrap then in heavy, coated butcher paper.
    It seems like you've been doing in cooking field of business ... for years.

    While not bags, I've been buying generic rolls from Amazon for over 3 years. Two 50' rolls 11" wide for less than $20.

    Anyone have experience with Geryon? I've been trying to convince the other half that a vaccuum sealer would actually be an addition to the kitchen and not a nuisance, and these seem well reviewed and in the right budget range.

    If not, anything in general for vaccuum sealers I should avoid, since I've never owned one?

    We bought ours six years ago, V4880, at Costco. We love it and have not had any problems whatsoever. We too order the generic bags through Amazon. I recently froze two racks of spares but they had been St. Louis trimmed. Don't think untrimmed spares would fit.

    We bought a FS Gm 700 which is called the Game Saver. It's a heavy duty continuous use model. I can and have done 50 bags in a row without having to wait for it to cool down every 5-6 bags like our old one. It also comes with a 12 volt adapter for field use. I bought direct from FS with a sale price of under $100.
    We've had it for over two years and I am extremely happy with it.
    We get our rolls 6"and 11" from eBay, I just shop for the lowest buy it now price for 50' rolls. I've been able to beat Amazon every time even with my Prime acct.

    I've got just the basic food saver model and I've had it a few years. . Never had any trouble. I don't use the hell out of it or anything.

    Yes.

    Useful for freezing leftovers (my mom reheats in a pan of water and pours it over rice). Useful for Sous Vide (rolls from Amazon are within reason, baggie/water displacement too much work for me). I buy a whole rib eye, age it, cut it up and freeze dinner portions.
