Review The Livescribe Echo Smartpen has an audio recorder and great accuracy, but it's weight makes it uncomfortable to write with.

The Seal-a-Meal vacuum food sealer is a good machine if you are just beginning, because it is easy to figure out how to use even without reading the instructions first (though we certainly suggest you do, because there is good info and a lot of hints in there).
