Foodsaver-crush free feature?

The newer models of Foodsavers have a seal button that they claim will provide a crush free seal. I can get a V825 for a very good price but it doesn't have a seal button, only a cancel button. My question - will I be able to stop the vacumn process using an older machine and if not is crush free a feature that I would even use? Thanks much.

  1. The only time I ever wish that my FoodSaver had crush free is when I'm freezing bakery items. You can freeze them first and then FoodSaver them, but they still get kind of squashed, imo. If you don't need to freeze your bakery items, then you can just put them in a canister and don't have to worry about crushing them.
