VACMASTER PRO260 Suction Vacuum Sealer – The vacuum sealer performed very well, right out of

Great product and easy to use. Love the roll storage, and the pulse feature for fruits. Recommend this product highly.

I have fought numerous food saver vacuum sealers in the past and was tired of buying a new one every few years and still having them not work consistently. The vacmaster is a high quality vacuum sealer for the money and has lots of convenient features like auto lock and the vacuum and seal time adjustments. The only reason i gave it four stars over five is that it is kind of bulky and the black tape over the sealing strip really looks like it is supposed to come off, which is exactly what i did right out of the box. I called vacmaster and they shipped me new tape immediately, so no real issues at all. They said it is a common mistake and were working on gluing the tape better. We will see how it holds up over time but knowing i can replace parts instead of having to buy a new unit is a good feeling.

Here are the specifications for the VACMASTER PRO260 Suction Vacuum Sealer:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • A double seal on each bag ensures a complete and lasting seal that keeps your food fresh up to five times longer.
  • Perfect for preserving and organizing food and non-food items, so you can free up space in your freezer, refrigerator and cupboards.
  • Saves you money by reducing spoilage and prolonging shelf storage life.
  • Roll dispensing system holds two bag rolls simultaneously (one 8″ and one 11.5″) with a two-way built-in roll cutter
  • Marinating option is perfect for infusing your food with flavor.

The vacuum sealer performed very well, right out of the box. The one disappointing thing is the noise. It was advertised as very quite, in fact it is louder than my previous foodsaver sealer.

When we unpacked this vacmaster pro 260 we were impressed with the design and the set up. Then we decided to use it for sealing a test package. It went through all the gyrations of closure, but it did not take the air out of the package. We called their customer service number, someone answered after two rings. Then i was told the person in the shop would get on the phone and in about a minute he was there. It was a pleasure to understand his speaking. He asked me if i had used sealers before and i told him yes we had a competitor brand which had stopped working. We want to upgrade and were disappointed.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent product for storage vacuum sealing
  • and reviews on this PRO260 were excellent. The previous brand ran 50/50
  • Happy so far

I bought the pro 130 ( the then current model) in july, 2012 and used it maybe 15 time and the heat seal bar went out this month. Vacmaster considers this a consumable ( not set out in warranty) so you have to buy the part and install it your self. Installing is easy, and the part cost about $30 with shipping. You cannot use the seal feature without the vacumn running so you have to freeze liquids first. When you are sealing light things like flour you have to put it in a plastic bag before inserting into the seal bag or the product will get sucked into the machine. I tried placing a paper towel in the seal bag to block the flour, but that did not work.

This was a replacement for an old, seldom used sealer, and i much prefer this one and have used it more often. The machine is weighty, and i don’t care much for the roll holder, but it functions as expected. Like all good sealers, it’s quite fussy until you get the bag in straight, which is good since if it seals anyway, it defeats the purpose.

I’ve had 3 or 4 vacuum sealers (another brand), before the vacmaster. None worked as well as this. I did a lot of research before purchase, and reviews on this pro260 were excellent. The previous brand ran 50/50. Some liked them, some didn’t. I wanted an better unit, because last fall i harvested a large moose, and the unit i had would not handle the processing. It wouldn’t remove all of the air, and i feared freezer burn. When i received this unit, i redid my earlier moose, and a pig. This vacmaster did an excellent job. All air was removed, and i completed sealing both the moose & pig, in 1/4 the time it took previously, just to do the moose.

So i am going to elaborate on few different areas with this sealer. I have used food saver and have also owned ziploc sealer n both of those are well known name so would think ‘geez they should work pretty good’ well think again cause everyone i have used lacks my purpose of use with that being said i took a gamble on the vacmaster pro260. . Right out of the box it felt as if i already made the right choice by feel and weight alone. So plugged it in turned it on and a little whisp sound was being made so figured ok it takes a little time to warm everything but no i was wrong it is an internal cooling fan that keeps it from overheating. Started going thru my freezer to try this thing out before i tackled a big job with it. So i cut a bag n sealed the one end which worked ok. . So i vacuumed the item n vacuumed n sealed amazing. So i tried another item which didnt go so well. Which leads me to what ppl have complained about. I sealed the one end n it dint work worth a damn. So i started playing with it some more n figured out that once you push the seal button you need to hold the lid down with couple fingers until the lid gets sucked down by the machine which is an awsome feature. . It tightens right down on that bag hard. So i tried another one without holding lid n same problem occured it didnt seal hardly at all. So what i am getting at is hold the lid down when doing just a seal for couple seconds till the machine takes over n it worked flawless everytime.

I had bought the costco foodsaver bundle a little over a year ago, but from the very beginning i was disappointed with the strength of the vacuum. I smoke a lot of meat and would find that the foodsaver would not fully remove all of the air from the bag. One great thing about costco is that they took back the foodsaver and gave me a full refund. The vacmaster pro260 came recommended from a number of forums i routinely visit and decided to give it a try. On the first few attempts i noted that by using the automated “vacuum” setting it would not always remove the air, similar to the foodsaver. But when i switched to the pulse setting, it removed all of the air from the bag. I sealed 15 lbs worth of meat without having to let the unit cool down between bags and i was impressed at the tight seal and zero air pockets within the bag. I also like the fact that the vacuum runs during the sealing process. I know others don’t like this feature, but there are times when you don’t get a good seal, if say a food particle is sucked up between the heat sealing bar. I can add a double seal to the bag and it will remove any excess air that may have flowed back into the bag.

I have had just food saver machines in the past and the vacmaster is much better. First the hands free operation is a big improvement over the food saver machine and the auto vac or seal process is also more full proof than a manual process. The bag cutting on the vacmaster is where i would rate my food saver machine better. However any one that uses a vac packer a lot like we do will find they like this machine much better than their old ones.

I’ve had several vacuum sealers and this is the best one yet.

I have used it a lot and has worked great. It is a little bit louder than others. I would recommend to others.

I’ve been using a ‘food saver’ vac sealer for over a decade and the last one i had purchased never really worked well. Thanks to a tip off from a co-worker i was turned on to this wonderful product. It works flawlessly and the marinating setting is a wonderful bonus.

I absolute love this machine.

Sounds and feels kind of cheap. Very lite weight and cheap looking compared to the foodsaver brand. Hopefully, it will not breakdown like the foodsaver’s do.

I have had mine for about a year now after looking for something better than my foodsaver. But now, i am noticing things i froze 3 months ago are developing freezer burn. . So time to look for something better.

I read several reviews about the heat strip overheating and smoke coming from it. I don’t know if they peeled off the black tape that protected the heat bar or not. I use mine often and i give aprox 5 minutes in-between each seal or vac & seal cycle. I know this is not for soups but, i placed left over soup in the bag and did a seal only. By two weeks later, the soup tasted just the same as the first day i cooked it. I like to dry my own herbs and blend some of them to a fine powder. The powder did start to rises up but, then i used the pulse feature and was able to vac out 95% of the air then seal. I will test the herbs out in 6 months to check for freshness. I did put an oxy absorber so that should help. I understand what it is meant by ‘trial & error’ at times i couldn’t get the bag to seal all the way across because the bag became wet or food residue.

I have been using this since i got it in. The first day i got it in i put up 50 lbs of catfish and it worked like a charm. Since them i have been putting up vegetables out of the garden and it has performed good so far.

My husband and i have used this to make the tiniest of bags such as vitamin packs. It worked for many hours continuously and without fail. It arrived on time and in great condition.

It is ok but it took a lot of fussing around for it to work properly. Vacuum did not work with out me physically holding the lid down.

VACMASTER VP112S Chamber Vacuum Sealer, Five Stars

I highly recommend this vacuum chamber sealer. It does everything it is supposed to do. My only suggestion would be to order the filler plate set to speed up sealing of smaller items. If you do order the filler plate set i also recommend that you remove the built-in clamp. I got good seals to begin with however i am getting much better seals with the clamp removed. Vacmaster’s higher end machines include the filler plates but do not have the clamp. Another plus with this model besides saving money over the higher end machines is that it fits nicely under your kitchen cabinets.

After about 6 months of regular use (average 60-70 cycles per day) i started having issues with bags not letting the air out. They would expand to the point of pushing out from under the seal bar. Called ary tech support and the human receptionist answered, in english, on the first ring. She transferred me to techies and they answered on the second ring. After a short discussion they over-nighted replacement o-rings for the sealer bar pistons. Called back next day and one of the other techies walked me through replacing the first set of o-rings. I thanked him and proceeded to replace the other set solo. Machine works perfect again. I will be buying a second vp112s cause without this machine, i’m out of business. It’s the perfect solution to portion and inventory control.

The unit seems solidly built and comes apart easily for cleaning. After two years of use (and much less than 1000 sealed bags), the machine will sometimes start but neither create a vacuum nor seal. It usually works if i try again (or a few more times). This happens unpredictably, so it’s not related to any sort of overheating as far as i can tell.

Key specs for VacMaster VP112S Chamber Vacuum Sealer:

Comments from buyers

“BUY IT and don’t look back.
, Should have bought sooner
, Great chamber vac for home owner

I love this thing ( once i found a pull out drawer in my kitchen to store it. ) using it for sous vide (perfect seals every time), marinading bags and marinade function for jerky and ribs, sealing cheeses for freezing (costco sized portions too big to use quickly), vacuum sealing for clothing for travel. I am looking into whether or not i can stabilize small pieces of wood in here.

I did not purchase from amazon however i thought i’d share my solutions with amazon to issues this machine has. #1: in order to start the sealing process you need to gently press down on both handles that currently say lift here to get a vacuum in the chamber. #2: the gasket supplied with the unit is not installed upon unboxing the unit. If you lay the gasket on a flat surface you will notice that one of the sides is wider than the other 3. The wider side must go towards the back of the unit or the gasket will buckle after a few uses and will need to be manually realigned. In addition, improper installation will cause the gasket to prematurely wear and will cause it to eventually fail.

Well i have had this sealer for about 2 years now. It is a great product and it is a chamber sealer so it sucks the air out of the chamber and seals the bag then allows air back in the chamber and the difference in air pressure makes the bag contract that is how the bag is sealed. I buy bulk meat from costco and seal it all up and throw it in the freezer. I buy meat from costco about twice a year. This machine allows you to buy by the case at costco which gives you a considerable discount even at costco. For example tri-tip is normally $7. 89 a pound in a two pack from costco as of 7-2015. If you buy it buy the case it’s $6. 75 a pound and you can break up the case of 70 or 80 pounds and put each tri tip with seasoning in a bag. And freeze it for over a year and it is just as good as the day you bought it.

I got it as a bit of a splurge for sous vide cooking, and now i use it all the time. Why mess around with ziploc bags when these are pennies each and store things better?. I cook for hours most nights, and i literally use this more often than basically any other kitchen appliance i have. When i moved to a new apartment with a tiny kitchen, i gave this beast a third of the minuscule counter space — alongside my breville toaster oven and polyscience induction hot plate. If you can afford it and cook at all, just get oneoh, and the stand with the 3 rings that you can use for filling vacuum bags. You know, the one that looks like a gimmicky ripoff?. It’s actually super-useful and you should get one of those too. (aha, it’s this one: vacmaster multi-ring bag stand for vacuum packaging ).

The vp112s has a bigger chamber than i thought. My wife and i love using it. We always find a reason to use it. When putting away cheese, leftovers. Gone are the days when you are left frustrated with the other vacuum sealers. We put away a moose with it this last fall with no issues as well. The only thing is the chamber top(cover) sometimes doesn’t mate quite perfect with the bottom and it won’t start vacuuming. Just apply slight pressure to the cover for a few seconds while it starts, and it is just fine. It is so cool to even put away leftover soups if you want to.

I bought this after going through a foodsaver vac sealer every two years. Essentially, you throw the fs away when they die. I was hoping this would last longer. Its a great chamber sealer and a major plus that you can vac seal liquid, such as soup stock etc. Which one cannot do with the fs. Unfortunately, with only two years on it it simply died — no power. And the gaskets are loose and have come off. I only use on weekends in my beach home so pretty light use. Its only a one year warranty, so now i am sending back to ary for expensive repair. So, in the end, frankly not that much better than foodsaver, but i cant just throw this one away as it cost a lot more.

These guys know how to make a vacuum sealer. Powerful pump, good operation, and solid as a brick house.

We live in alaska and process our own wild game and fish. This seals well and quickly. Much better that the cheaper versions we have used in the past.

I just got this today and have used it enough to know i’m highly impressed. It vacuums better than my foodsaver. And also uses those bags, too. I can cut my own length bags from a roll. To make the first seal, start the vacuum as you normally would, but then interrupt it and press ‘seal. ‘ then the bag is ready to use. We don’t have any soup ready to freeze, so just to experiment, i made two bags of water. Try that with the foodsaver.

It exceeded my expectations. This is my first chamber vacume sealer and i’m very satisfied.

First off this is a great sealer. It pulls allot harder vacuum than a foodsaver, and the bags are so cheap that you can seal almost anything without even thinking about the price of the bags. With that said, their are two minor issues. The first is their is no canister sealer attachment point, since i only seal a few canisters a year, this really isn’t a problem. The other thing, though is that i can’t figure out how to seal a bag without pulling a vacuum. For instance if i want to seal something like a bag of chip, this unit seemed to have to pull a vacuum first. In spite of that, this is a great, though heavy unit. It does what it says, and does it well.

This is my first chamber vacuum sealer, i wish i hadn’t waited so long. We quit using out standard sealer because you had to first freeze any item that had moisture in it and then attempt to vacuum seal. We started using zip lock freezer bags instead and finally decided they were getting expensive and most items ended up freezer burned before we would use them. I researched this item on multiple sites and read a lot of reviews & decided the price and size would fit our needs. The first item i sealed of course was a quart of water and i can say i was impressed. In the time i have had this sealer i have used it about 20 times and most of the items have been broth, soup and other items with moisture in them. It is a heavy machine so i put it on a kitchen cart that i can push out of the way when not in use.

Being able to package liquids like soup, chili and things like that cuts down the waste for me living alone. I can fix real food then portion it out and package and freeze it. A word of caution, this needs to be headed. Make sure the liquid/fluid contents are no more than luke warm, any warmer and you will have package contents boiling in the bag and that does not work well. The reason things boil at lower atmospheric pressure.

Short review:if you can handle the price, this is a great chamber vacuum sealer for the home. It takes up the least counter space (but it is still very big), is easy to use, accepts a wide variety of bags, and doesn’t look too shabby either. Whether you’re using it for plain old vacuum sealing, sous vide cooking, or vacuum infusion/compression, the vp112s is a solid choice. See the full review for some usage tips and other considerations. Full review:it’s amazing that you can get a full-featured chamber vacuum sealer (cvs) for less than $1,000 these days. This is still a major purchase, but if you’re looking at this at all, you probably already know that you’re going to spend some real cash for a cvs. I’ll cover the three most likely uses for this machine, food storage, sous vide cooking, and ‘modernist’ cooking techniques. Food storage:if you’re used to using the counter top clamp-style sealers, moving to a cvs will be a welcome change. The bags are cheaper and pre-made, the process is faster, and (best of all) you can seal foods with liquid in them.The chamber of the vp112s is deceptively large, allowing you to use the 12’x13′ bags, and those hold a lot of food.

Great for freezing leftovers and reducing bulk items for better portion control.

Use this unit since 2 years, work like a charm. I save money and give to my frozen meal a protection than they deserve. I’m french and food is a tradition for me.

We’ve been using vacuum sealers since the 70’s and i’ve wanted a chamber sealer for a long time. It was only after i spent the money that i learned the real value of this or other vacuum sealers. First, let me say that the vp112s does what it is supposed to do and does it well. I do kind of wish it had the external port but, then, i almost never use the vacuum canisters or jars i spent good money purchasing. The beauty of the chamber system, as others have said, is that you can vacuum liquids. I roast a duck every month or so and use the giblets, and bones (everything except the leg quarters and breasts) to make duck soup. I add cooked rice to the soup or, sometimes i just save the soup and add fresh or frozen rice later. The vp112s works great for vacuum sealing the soup and the bags are great for heating the soup but i usually just put the frozen soup in a pan out of the vacuum bag. Some have recommended freezing your food before vacuum sealing in a chamber vac. With a foodsaver style (ribbed vacuum bags) you have to freeze wet foods first because it sucks the wet out of the food and into the seal area, yielding poor seals.

It does cost a few extra shekels , but it does everything i ask of iti replaced a weston 2300 pro for this and the difference is very noticeable. I have no problem sealing powdered eggs, milk, sugar or salt. No more problems with wet items either. i’ve found that, by buying 3 mil rolls of bags, i can make any size i want using a hot clothes iron and a carpenters level as flat surface. I can make long slender bags of very long fat bags. whatever size i want is available. now, the sizes that are available for this machine are numerous, but when i only need a few bags of various sizes, this solution works for me.

This vacmaster 112s works wonderfully. Absolutely, hands down, the best ever for many reasons. You can place your item in to seal and walk away, come back in 25 seconds, and its finished. You don’t have to stand there and hold the sealing bag. Liquid in the pouch is no problem. It will seal it with liquid and not get anything in the machine. My wife seals mashed potatoes, along with other things in portions sized for us, puts the seal outside of a pan of boiling water. In just a few minutes a meal that’s as fresh as if she just cooked it.

I purchased this machine approximately 3 1/2 years ago and have used it almost every day since. You really do get what you pay for. The companies customer service is absolutely amazing, last week the machine stop heat sealing, i called there customer service and their tech support guys walk me through how to trouble shoot the problem and then recommended a new circuit board. It was shipped immediately and had clear instructions on installation, my vacmaster is now working just like it used to and the board was only 19. I will devinately be doing business with these people for a long time to come.

VACMASTER PRO350 Suction Vacuum Sealer, This is a beast of a machine. I have

This is a beast of a machine. I have vacuum sealed roughly 3000 packages with this machine and it is a boss.

Very sturdy and very easy to use. 5 secs and i haven’t had any seal failures. The machine is so fun and easy to use, i find myself looking around the house for things to bag. I’ve thought about trying one of the cats and they seem to read my thoughts. They hide when they hear the machine turn on.

Just got this vacuum sealer this week and did a bunch of sealing 20 – 30 bags. Automatic features and manual control. Even allows you to adjust the sealing time for thicker/thinner bags. It pulls a tight vacuum and creates a nice wide seal on a bag. It has a cooling fan, so maybe the vacuum pump will have a longer life?. I did a bunch of research because i didn’t want a product for $60-100 that was made of plastic that i’d have to toss after a year. I wanted something that seemed solidly constructed and built to last. The vacmaster pro 350 seemed like it fit the bill.

Key specs for VacMaster PRO350 Suction Vacuum Sealer:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Extend your food freshness up to five times longer than traditional storage systems.
  • Convenient roll cutter and storage built into the machine.
  • A unique and practical transparent lid allows you to easily check bag placement on the seal bar.
  • With a new intuitive digital panel control, vacuum packaging hard cheeses, meals, veggies and even fish and game is incredibly easy.
  • An extra wide seal wire gives heavy-duty, leak-proof protection.

Comments from buyers

“Great choice for a heavy-duty suction vacuum sealer
, and we’ve not had any seals go bad in the freezer
, I love it, very easy to use and I use

All i can say is the negative feedback must be from folks who don’t know how to read the instructions and set it up properly. It’s a champ and i’ve run 150 feet of bags already. If you buy it you won’t be disappointed.

After using the vacmaster pro350 for a few months now, i love it, very easy to use and i use it almost daily for sealing bags and canisters. Takes a little more counter space than my old foodsaver, but not that bad. Like the wider seal band on the bags, also adjustable heat times to accomodate other brand bags is nice. Only thing i wish it had was a removeable tray in the vacuum chamber to make it easier to clean up when a small amount of liquid gets sucked from the bag during sealing.

Works well with their bags would not work with 4mil bulk rolls at that price it should work with any bags sent it back.

Wasn’t sure how much we would use it but it is easy to operate and works great. I can now buy in bulk and freeze without the worry of freezer burn.

After fighting with several models of foodsavers over many years, i discovered this gem. Does everything i hoped for faster and with greater reliability. Pulse seal – one of the neatest perks is the ‘pulse. ‘ i like to freeze homemade bread, cakes, and cookies. With the foodsaver it was a guess when to stop the vacuuming process and press the seal button. I invariably left in too much air or crushed what i was sealing. With the vacmaster pulse you can stop the vacuum process at the exact point you need, then press the seal button. Seal bar – wide seal bar, what more can i can?.

We have to ‘fiddle’ with it often to get it to work. I expected better quality, than the countertop models that do the same thing.

Phenomenal vacuum sealer great for sealing liquids using the purge button.

Fantastic sealer, i have had many low end sealers and finally opted to this unit and i love it, awsome.

Very nice quality, i like the pulse feature, makes it easier to seal delicate items.

This is a great sealer, if you don’t mind doing a little extra. It isn’t a fully automatic machine like a foodsaver. This machine has several manual features that make it a much more versatile sealer. The seal is much wider, the vacuum is much stronger, and the storage tray will hold bulk rolls of bag material. My biggest problem with my previous foodsaver was long wait between seals, that isn’t a problem anymore. I don’t have any issues myself, but some people may not like the large size. I must put it away between uses, so it’s not always readily available.

Hands down the best vac sealer that i have owned in my 62 plus years.

I do a ton of wild game processing and food sealing. In the neighborhood of several hundred bags per year. This machine replaced (3) food savers that were getting weak after only a few years. After one year, this machine has never failed to seal, and we’ve not had any seals go bad in the freezer. The previous sealers i had, about 25% would go bad. It has also never overheated, which is a tremendous time saver.

Quality machine, and has roll storage and cutter built in. Pulse is a nice feature to control the length of time to vacuum for moist items. It also has 3 settings for the amount of vacuum applied.

Works great super easy to use.

The vacmaster pro350 works and operates l0 times more efficient than a meal-a-seal, being a hunter and processing game during the bagging and sealing is a non stop operation, where the meal a seal product a person has to wait for the heat sores to re-heat with thevacmaster there is no waiting.

I expected this model to be more than the previous one thats discontinued. The outlook overall looked quite ‘pro’. Wasn’t expecting much at this price range vacuum sealer but this one is really average. Has the capacity to hold a 50′ roll of vacuum packing roll. But does not fully suck out the air even at max. I tried contacting vacmaster and they did not even bother to reply. Its like a glorified sealing machine sans the vacuuming function.

Three deers, 50 chickens, 10 rabbits and a goat still going strong.

Vacmaster was great about product support when i had problems with the unit.

This is a heavy, and seemingly well constructed piece of equipment. I only just received it, replacing a foodsaver that i’d had for several years, but had used only lightly and off-and-on. The vacmaster pro350 is a much more ‘serious’ machine and i’m very happy with the purchase. I also have a vacmaster chamber vacuum in shipping/storage, but i’m on a one-year job assignment and won’t see my chamber vac for about a year. I was in the middle of starting a long sous vide cook when my foodsaver died, and i can’t imagine not cooking sous vide until i’m reunited with my chamber vac. I compared the weston 2300 and i also looked at the vacmaster pro380. It seems the pro380 is identical except for the wider (16′) seal bar. I don’t need something so big, thus my choice of the pro350. The weston had more and better reviews – it seems like a great choice. However, i had good luck with my vacmaster chamber vacuum, so customer/brand loyalty figured into my decision.

VACMASTER 30754 4-Mil Chamber Pouches – Great vaccum bags

I obtained these for use with my vacmaster chamber vacuum sealer. The four ply make these really durable and strong. My spouse states this vacuum sealer is so substantially simpler to use than the previous foods saver that we experienced. These ended up costing about $. What a deal and what a item.

Wonderful sizing for one servings. Will also get some of the bigger sized with next order.Here are the specifications for the VACMASTER 30754 4-Mil Chamber Pouches:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Heavy-duty 4 mil thick material provides a superior pouch for optimum freshness and reliable seal
  • Keeps food fresh up to 5 times longer; eliminates freezer burn and dehydration
  • Pouches can be frozen, refrigerated, microwaved, boiled, or cooked sous vide
  • Nylon/Poly construction for high puncture and abrasion resistance
  • BPA-Free and FDA approved; compatible with chamber vacuum sealers

The 4 millimeter pouches do the job a great deal far better for the sous vide cooking. I have been vacuum sealing newborn back again ribs and 2 times the bones penetrated the 3 mill pouches. I have not experienced any difficulties with the four mill. The three mill are excellent for normal vacuum packing.

4-mil design tends to make them quite hefty responsibility for storing things in the freezer or transporting frozen products. I will not likely hesitate purchasing a different batch of when i run out.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Highly recommended for any chamber vacuum
  • Sealing up the perfect sizes!
  • The extra thickness of the 4-mil

I have acquired these luggage a number of times in the earlier.

I use them with my chamber vacuum sealer and they function superb. Much thicker than the garbage i used with my meals saver. Glad i invested in a chamber vac.

I ordered the luggage and they arrived a few days early. Grateful that i can get the luggage by way of the mail and not have to track down a butcher shop. Feeling well prepared for winter.

Nice, weighty responsibility, properly packaged bags😊.

Baggage are significant high-quality at a affordable rate.

00 but you help save hundreds of dollars in wasted foodlets say you have only $one. 00 truly worth of foodstuff in each individual bag x’s 1000 bags is minimal $1000 in price savings. 00 in food stuff and $5000 in food stuff personal savings and so onbasically its freevacmaster 215 for the get.

Great prices and great supply.

6′ is undoubtedly a little smaller than i imagined and variety of tricky to fold again so i can place meals in the bag and not get the seal spot dirty. But i acquired applied to it the additional i utilised it and we fit best person steaks in it and seal them or one pound of hamburger (could likely get 1 1/two kilos in the bag), also awesome parts of strawberries, peaches or nut go wonderful in this sizing. We are loving our new vacmaster vp215 and accidentally ordered the vp210 that would not acquire oil initial, so we despatched it again and received this one and are sealing up steaks, hamburger, strawberries, home produced path combine, property produced beef jerky appropriate and remaining. Incredibly great and we like these baggage for the reason that they are thicker for extended preservation and to be boiled, whilst you can boil the three mil bags far too, but i haven’t attempted boiling possibly just one of them nevertheless. We have some 3 mil bags with the machine and ordered far more 3 mil and 4 mil for diverse purposes. It really is quite a pricey expense at first, but the bags must last a while and get us through hunting period this 12 months and all the product sales on our favorite steak or other meat. Now that the boys are developed, it truly is actually awesome to seal up more compact parts. This would have been really wonderful when we experienced a bigger family as well, but in no way could manage it, it appeared.

Effortless to use, i will obtain them again.

Excellent for my household sealing.

I’m owenr operater of a fishing lodge in alaska tha yakutat steelhead inn these four mill baggage do the trick ( bullet evidence) we put up hundreds of lbs of fish of all kinds moreover what at any time great products quite pleased.

Good product or service and shipped rapid.

A great deal more compact than i expected. So i will get the greater baggage following time.

. Jerky could nevertheless puncture four mil. For most food stuff three mil would in all probability do.

We typically use the 3 mil luggage but considered we would try the 4 mil. Though they are only one mil thicker, they feel a large amount heavier. Should be much less chance of puncturing the luggage.

If you have ever dropped a frozen pouch(s) of meat or fish, on the ground with a 3-mil bag, its likely that the luggage made leaks. The 4-mil chamber pouches definitely assistance to secure frozen filets all through air freight cargo. The incremental expense of the thicker luggage is smaller when as opposed with the charge getting rid of filets due to pouch abrasion or punctures. Go with the extra thickness, you would not be dissatisfied.

VACMASTER Full Mesh Vacuum Bags – These are great for my Weston vac sealer

As said in my overview of the vacmaster rolls, i am model-new to vacuum sealing. I have utilised about ten of these so much with no challenges at all. These are bigger than my zip-lock ‘quart’ bags, so they hold rather a load. I remarkably suggest these bags.

Of training course they are not as good as the original bags forthe machine but those are far too highly-priced. These were being not as great as the other substitute bags i purchased in advance of but all those have been out of stock and i essential bags to freeze veggies for the winter from the last 2 farmer’s marketplaces of the time. These did not seal properly and seemed pretty thin.

I have utilized other bags and these do the job superior than the higher priced kinds and you get 3 time the quanity for considerably less dollars. They are utilised on a every day foundation for placing up veggies and meat. Glad i discovered these and really reccomend. Use absorbent pads in the major when you have moist products as they like others will not seal effectively if humidity is remaining pulled via the seal space. Can use folded paper towels in the leading when sealing. Ultimately figered out what the tiny pads were for when you buy meats.Here are the specifications for the VACMASTER Full Mesh Vacuum Bags:

  • Make sure this fits

  • BPA-free and FDA approved
  • For Suction Type Vacuum Sealers; Includes 100 pre-cut bags
  • U.S. Patent #6,991,109 printed on every bag

We have long gone through hundreds if not hundreds of these at fish camp and they are continue to by much the greatest alternative out there (we’ve attempted three-4 other makes). They are priced ideal, function in a wide variety of diverse devices, maintain a excellent seal, all up a fantastic bag. The only issue which may perhaps dissuade some individuals sort getting them is that they are a rather skinny bag and may perhaps not get the abuse of thicker far more highly-priced bags like from foodstuff saver.

I use these with my vacuum sealer and they do the job fantastic and keep up really well. They are quite huge, so i have occasionally basically reduce them in 50 percent and manufactured them into two bags by sealing a single on each finishes when i’ve required to retail store lesser amounts. These are also a lot thicker than other ones i’ve purchased in the past, and i have also identified that some other manufacturers had a odd chemical/plastic scent (earning me anxious about the idea of storing foodstuff in them) when opened which this a single failed to.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great bags at a very economical price
  • Best of many brands I have tried
  • Best price I’ve found for sturdy bags

Our vacuum sealing machine is applied practically on a daily basis and i use it for prolonging the shelf existence of nuts and dried fruits. I also vacuum seal block cheeses and deli meats that have been subdivided into additional effortless sized packages. For decades i uncovered it disheartening to only get a reuse about fifty percent the time out of the food saver bags. But i’m delighted that the vacmaster bags work all over again and all over again, efficiently. So far, i’ve under no circumstances had a vacmaster sealed package deal fall short to hold the first ‘no-air-within-the-package’, but it was a common event with the past bags. Extremely advise vacmaster bags in all sizes. Premade bags are good and i no extended have to use the plastic rolls which never ever labored incredibly well for me.

I obtained these bags just to try them, as i have tried other people. Quick shipping and delivery, significant bodyweight, and easy to use. If you want excellent, as in serious very good, resonable bags these are for you. I even acquired a coupon to use for my up coming obtain.

Despite the fact that i choose the food items saver brand bags in typical, i need to acknowledge that is potentially an aesthetic bias and for a superior purpose. I have experienced really excellent luck with vacmaster bags. I have utilized them typically for freezing meat and for sous vide. They have accomplished the job very well. I will buy these again as they are a great value.

I lastly got all over to using these bags and was pretty pleased with the packing. Laid flat and not curled up produced them a lot much easier to use. I have a foods saver and they worked wonderful with it. Ideally, they will keep their seal and the freshness in for a excellent extensive while.

I tried to obtain domestically for substitute bags for my seal-a-food with no success so i looked on line and identified this merchandise. The principal matter is no measuring or slicing, they are all ready to use. I can acquire in bulk and divide and retail outlet in these bags. I referred this products to good friends and they also loved this product. I will unquestionably will purchase yet again.

I purchased one box to see if the bags were as very good as the higher priced storage bags, and was pleasantly stunned to discover they have been of even increased good quality than anticipated. Just after analyzing, i obtained various much more bins as we use them for packing and freezing household built sausage. These worked so very well for this kind of a terrific selling price that my spouse explained to me not to critique them as he is worried they will be out of inventory up coming time we have to have themupdate: the bags have held up incredibly effectively in the freezer more than the previous yr. We just created sausage again and used three hundred bags not one failed to seal.The measurement is just appropriate, and we preserve various hrs on packaging time because they are pre-slash with a few sealed edges. If you are actually thrifty, you can wash them out and reuse them.

The recommendations as effectively as a lot of testimonials allow me know that a person really should not use foodsaver bags in a weston vac sealer. Weston claims only use their bags, but i had heard these vacmaster bags labored well. I gave them a shot because of their rate, and was quite happily amazed. They work perfectly in my weston professional 2300 vac sealer, have not experienced an issue however. Granted i’ve only experienced/been working with them for a couple of months. Two thumbs up on worth and performance.

I have a foodsaver vacuum sealer. But i balk at the rate of the manufacturer title bags. I have bought other models of ‘generic’ bags in the previous with poor to mediocre results. So by natural means i was skeptical of this model, pondering, ‘if it can be that affordable it can’t be good’. The bags are durable but pliable, and seal very well. I haven’t nevertheless made use of them as ‘boil-in’ bags, nevertheless i will be hoping that before long as i get rice in bulk and package deal it in specific serving-dimension parts. I will be buying this model once more.

Suggested to me by a buddy who also utilized them. Arrived early and in perfect ailment.

These bags are awesome and sooo much more reasonably priced than the foodsaver bags which expense a fortune. You get 100 bags in in this article that are about the dimension of a normal piece of paper. They appear to be a bit thinner than the foodsaver bags, but at the price stage and the amount of money you get, and still of fantastic high quality these are the only vacuum bags i will ever use ever once again.

This is my second order of these vacuum sealer bags and i need to say i have no problems at all. Much more cost-effective than the foodsaver model bags and perform just as nicely. Great packaging and they seal nicely. I have experienced create in the freezer making use of these bags for far more than a yr now and when thawed they all arrive out tasting contemporary. I really propose this bag.

I have been obtaining these bags for a although now and they operate as they are supposed to(with foodsaver brand sealer) and the rate is good. I do experience a tiny responsible aboutsending this substantially plastic to the landfill, but vacuum-sealing definitely does preventfreezer melt away and foodstuff waste.

These perform fantastic in my foodsaver and are fewer high-priced than the foodsaver bags. I prefer the many sizes of the pre-made bags mainly because i look to squander far too substantially when i seal my individual. Virtually all bags seal the to start with time.

This is a great product for the vac learn professional sealer. This brand name is exceptionally wonderful.

Tried out a variety pack first and the bags are great, i had to get more. They shipped without box which saves cost too. No more food saver bags for me.

The bags arrived rapidly, packed effectively. They are 3 mil thick and have a webbing wherever the air is drawn as a result of. I will order these once more and in other dimensions. Update: i am placing a further get for these bags. They work perfectly and are the very best cost i have identified.

Great sous vide machine, improved than the anova. I changed an anova with this a person (my anova died just after about eight uses it stored erroring out and stating the h2o was 400°+f) and the difference is night time and working day. The anova felt like a toy in comparison to this 1. The vacmaster moves the water around much better and it heats up the h2o a great deal speedier. I did not have any difficulties with it trying to keep an exact temperature. At the time you place your things in the bathtub the temperature drops (clearly), but it introduced it correct back again up and kept it where it was intended to be. I tested the bathtub with a thermopen and it was hardly ever off by far more than . The only detail i you should not definitely like are the controls to set the timer.

Produced the most superb primary rib with it. I study the other opinions prior to crafting mine. I have had it for a calendar year and it performs completely. I use it with a 19l poly tub and include it with a chopping board or a self-designed major. I measured the drinking water temp and it was useless on to the setting. Built the most wonderful prime rib with it. Possibly the greatest pice of beef i have ever experienced. It is basic to use and if the new proprietor will truly examine the instructions, they will uncover out how effortless it is. The beeping suggests ‘start’ then beeps when the time is achieved. Very advised by another person who works by using it at the very least at the time a week.

The heater/circulator labored flawlessly and saved temperature in . This is my to start with introduction to sous vide cooking and i ought to say i am pretty amazed with the effects. As with all cooking solutions there are execs and cons but if you want the absolute most tender piece of meat you have ever professional.

Make high quality, specifics – almost everything is top class.

5 yrs later on, we use it 5 periods a week. The interface is infuriatingly simplistic and time consuming, but the darn issue operates.

I utilized the sous vide to cook dinner steak i set it for med uncommon it was fantastic.

Not sure what is the issue of the timer. At to start with i was fearful that it only went to ninety nine min. , as some of the recipes i experienced essential it to go substantially extended. Fortunately (i guess), the timer does not seriously perform. I did ribs which wanted 24-forty eight hours. Immediately after about 36 several hours, the ‘timer’ experienced counted down about fifteen min. Worthless as a timer, but pleased i did not have to get up consistently to reset it in purchase to prepare dinner.

I have two vacmaster vacuum sealers and really like them so i figured i’d give this a consider right after the more affordable anova pcw-120us-k1 only lasted one/two of a pork roast. Following two months and close to one hundred eighty several hours of use, this unit is still holding up effectively.

Pretty peaceful and it is effective without frills. . I acquired this for its simplicity and additional inexpensive price tag level. It was a tough selection to not give it a 5-star score for the pursuing causes: one) the temperature of the tub h2o was about two degrees a lot less than what was set and indicated on its show. I confirmed it utilizing 2 distinctive thermometers i have. two) the moment you’ve set the temperature and start the cooking process, you can’t transform the temperature location when its cooking. Effectively, you can but it requires a little bit more function than important. To transform cooking temperature environment though cooking, you would need to have to press halt, which then routinely resets your timer. It is a little bit of a stress to have to modify the timer to the place it was just before it was reset.

1500w provides a lot more heating electric power than most other available possibilities. Robust pump and tranquil operation.

Very good machine for the money, & a great alternative to more expensive polyscience machines.

Like something new you can see other people getting excellent final results — wow — the very very first time i utilised it i obtained the exact success that specialist cooks acquired — it is simple to use — read the directions as it will let you to comprehend the beeps — i simply cannot wait to try out something like a prime rib — or even a turkey breast — the only drawback that i have knowledgeable is that the timer jumps rather swiftly up and down — not a massive offer but would make it less complicated to set the timer — the unit is quieter than i expected which is terrific — even however the price tag of the unit was better than other helps make — it is made for industrial applications — which signifies i should get decades of services out of the device making use of it at residence.

It has been excellent performs as described and maintain temp correct on. It has been terrific performs as explained and hold temp ideal on. I have been applying it for two 7 days now and the family members has loved all the good foods.

Can take some getting employed to but has attained a place. Can take some having used to but has acquired a location in our kitchen for good. When we transform the kitchen we are likely to integrate a exclusive put for sous vide straight into the counter.

It’s stainless metal and will come aside easily and speedily for cleansing. For anyone complaining about the beeping. All you have to do is push the triangular ‘play’ button. That is the only complaint?in any case, this point is 1500 watts, is american created, and they have a guy who responses the cell phone without the need of urgent one for english. It can be stainless metal and will come apart conveniently and quickly for cleaning. It holds it is really temperature incredibly properly if adequately insulated (i use a cheap stainless metal pan and an aluminum foil deal with, tailor made minimize to in good shape.

You push the enjoy button to commence the timer.

Vacmaster sv1 – my ‘go to’ immersion circulator. Disclaimer: i purchased my vacmaster sv1 from the producer straight simply because i had to obtain their chamber vacuum sealer and bags all at at the time.

VACMASTER VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer : This weighs 90 pounds

Really should have received a person a long time in the past.

I enjoy the simple fact that bags for this. I enjoy the point that luggage for this are low-cost. I have utilised it to make my very own re-freezable water bladders, seal fish and rabbit, and to vacuum out mason jars with dry merchandise. I’ve only experienced a single sealing failure out of all around sixty luggage and that was due to a sharp bone. I caught the failure correct away and re-bagged. If you are on the fence about obtaining this sealer, i extremely recommend it as it does a much improved career than any foods saver kind sealer i have utilized and it is far more versatile. ((i have applied a lot of meals saver sealers and most have labored terrific for quick expression storage. Right after 8 or more months, i have had air get into about twenty% of my foodstuff saver sealed baggage.

Need to have a part for vacmaster vp210. I bought this on might is a very good device but truly the equipment is not doing work nicely due to the fact is needing adjust a element (brown bar).

This replaced our foodsaver. This changed our foodsaver. My husband arrived back with about 200 lbs of sushi quality tuna that he caught from baja california. That machine labored like a champ. We packed about two hundred bags in one particular evening and managed it with no issue. When i was buying for a alternative to our foodsaver i named ary, inc (vacmaster) and spoke to sarah in customer support and she was quite accommodating experienced the tech assistance simply call me to response all my queries.

Extremely excellent machine, we have for two a long time and we. Quite superior equipment, we have for two several years and we use it for a restaurant and we by no means had problems right up until now, theres a swap or anything not operating propertly, and i imagine is because we use it a whole lot.

VacMaster VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer : Much better that less expensive sealers. Much better that less expensive sealers. If you have a lot of product to seal, invest in this. Caution, very heavy machine.

Excellent semi-professional sealer. While you in all probability would not operate this machine in a industrial store, i have employed it for 3-4 hrs at a time and it worked completely. As some others have claimed, there is a bit of a studying curve and continue to keep in thoughts you will need to purchase certain luggage to match the machine, but it is hugely encouraged. If you are a hunter or even a house cook who cooks in significant batches, you will not be disappointed.

I have packed refreshing fish fillets, squid, sliced up bulk pancetta into 1/four lb. Extremely pleased with this buy.

This vacuum sealer does perform good. The only issue was when we acquired it. This vacuum sealer does operate excellent. The only issue was when we gained it the full again was caved in. My partner took the again off and tried using to straighten it out, it can be a lot superior than it was. We did send reply e-mails to the seller and maker notifying them of this but have not listened to back from them. It most likely occurred through delivery thanks to how much this sealer weights.

Functions terrific, improved than anticipated. This is a incredibly large equipment so please use warning lifting it. We do not use this for a firm, we use it at home. This is so a great deal improved than the types you can obtain at the division merchants and many others. We buy meat in bulk and have to re-package deal it for freezing. This is speedy, quiet, economical, and does the career with out any concerns. We got this one for residence looking at that there ended up fairly a quantity of opinions from organizations that use it each and every working day. We use it every single quite a few months to re-bundle 30-forty kilos of meat at a time into . We have long gone through 3 foodsaver devices because they just won’t be able to hold up. We anticipate this currently being used for a lot of decades to comeupdate: we have been utilizing this frequently and still like it. The only downside is the weight and sizing for preserving in the property. But for what you get, it is nevertheless effectively worthy of it.

A great machine truly worth the cost. I purchased this product or service for two causes: sous vide cooking and freezing products. When i initial began with sous vide cooking i had procured the cheap suction variety vacuum sealing units since i wished to ‘get my feet wet’ with this system. I understood the drawbacks of these kinds of devices (no manage around vacuum pulled, incapacity to use with liquids or moist foods) and immediately after functioning with a suction device for a though i was certain i would get fantastic use from a chamber vacuum so i obtained the vp210. I could not be a lot more happy. I very first checked with the business itself to answer inquiries about their many types and selected this a single, mostly based mostly on the size of the chamber and its double seal. The client service human being at vacmaster was welcoming and his information and opinions have been useful (and trusted). Some have advised a steep mastering curve, but i have not found that to be the circumstance. The settings proposed by the corporation function nicely with both equally vacmaster luggage and food saver luggage (that i experienced still left more than from my old suction machine). The key learning curve has to to with the time the vacuum is pulled, which establishes the quantity of vacuum made and thus the quantity of compression of the meals inside of.

Seals food items with liquids, but has a modest understanding curve to use it. I am a property cook dinner and have been cooking foodstuff sous vide, but the normal exterior sealers often pull moisture/liquids up and out of the bag which is very discouraging. The vp210 chamber lets you to seal baggage with none to alot of liquid. Nevertheless, there is a understanding curve, and i had to contact complex aid a few of times to get the machine established up the right way, but as soon as it is established up, it functions good. I am ready to seal meats and liquids in the equipment with out a dilemma. The initially device that i gained was dented on a back corner and the go over of the device was established far too minimal so it was impossible to plug it in. Amazon overnighted a replacement (thank you, i necessary it for thanksgiving). Then i needed to communicate to complex assistance a couple of situations to assist established up the device configurations. I had to improve the the seal time of the device up to 1. Specialized assistance explained not to increase it over 1. 5, but the placing as established by the factory was as well quick, so when the bag was sealing, air was having back into the bag. I elevated the vacuum time in the chamber to 60 seconds thanks to the original difficulty i was getting of the bags not keeping the vacuum, but can likely reduce the time now back again to forty seconds due to the fact the seal time is set to a for a longer time time. This is a simple chamber sealer for a incredibly realistic cost as opposed to other models on the industry, but you have to perform around with the time you established the device to vacuum.

Great sealer, huge sufficient to accommodate total bags.

Have accomplished about a hundred baggage of all measurements, and looks to be the ticket.

Acquired this immediately from the corporation at the conclusion of november considering that they had a twenty% off sale and free of charge transport. I have applied chamber vacuum sealers in experienced kitchens for decades, and there just is no comparison. Those foodsaver suction styles have serious limits for any amateur household prepare dinner fascinated in sous vide cooking. If you intend on having a vacuum sealer for sous vide cooking of any marinated/moist food items/liquids/custards and so forth. , you ought to invest in a chamber equipment. But a equipment like this will very easily outlast any of the low-priced suction-type sealers. Stuff retains for a lengthy, long time.

Good for packing refreshing caught fish. No discovering curve important soon after following the easy to fully grasp set up recommendations. Perfect airtight seals on the heavier 4-mil chamber pouches. This unit lives in my motor dwelling, and i am employing it to vacuum pack salmon and halibut prior to freezing and airfreight cargo. I am definitely pleased with the efficiency, reliability, and simplicity of use.

It really is a terrific product and blows away the foodsaver strategy. I bought a vp215 which is mainly this unit with a rotary oil pump. It’s a good merchandise and blows absent the foodsaver strategy. Of study course, you get what you shell out for. I produce just to say the the oil rotary pump design may well be improved suited to the little commercial enterprise than this vp210 dry piston product, but for the house person it might be overkill. I elected to endure the oil modifications and so on, but not positive i seriously desired to for dwelling sous vide use. Numerous of the functions of the vp 210 and 215 are identical (all but the pump process) that i truly feel comfortable indicating this is a very very good solution and is about as big as the home person requirements to get.

Efficient chamber vacuum sealer. . This machine is value the cash. Took very little time to review the guidance, plug it in and start employing the chamber vac. Quite straightforward to alter the options. Processed above one hundred pounds of fish fillets in about an hour and a 50 percent, at my leisure. The device remembers the last programmed configurations so no buttons to drive to begin at the time established. Just location your product or service in the bag, place bag in the chamber and thrust the lid down. The compressor starts off promptly and inside of a few of seconds, retains the lid shut. You can be filling the following bag to be processed whilst the machine is undertaking its obligation. The lid opens immediately at the completion of the vacuum cycle which saves a move and time in the course of the procedure.

I am not a cook – i am a nerd and i like this factor. I’m normally singing ‘she blinded me with science’ [. while i am happily packing food that my wife–the foodie-type chef–has whipped up in the kitchen. All joking aside — the vacmaster is a solid addition to our arsenal of food prep-cooking-storage. It was kinda pricey for our budget – but we decided to take the plunge and are extremely happy with the decision. To illustrate — i make fresh popcorn (not microwave) and i vacuum pack it for snacks throughout the week. Once packed — the popcorn is fresh and delicious every time i open a bag.No preservatives necessary~ next –do you have bags of flour open in the pantry?.]

Some suggestions and extreamly valuable utilizes you may not be conscious of. I purchased the vp210 for sous vide cooking right after obtaining fed up with bad seals from my suction type machine ruining my foodstuff. I have made use of about 200 luggage with the vp210 so much and have not experienced a solitary unsuccessful seal. When utilized thoroughly, the double seal bar will work properly every single time. No a lot more dampness receiving sucked in and ruining the seal. A superior tip for filling luggage with soaked meals (this sort of as a huge wet piece of meat) is to get some little (you can lower up larger sized ones) adaptable slicing boards. Roll the reducing board into a tube and location it in the opening of the vacuum bag. Now the sealing space of the bag is shielded and you can quickly position soaked things in the bag and however make certain a excellent seal. If you are pouring liquids into the bag (this sort of as a marinade) there are helpful ring stands you can get to hold the bag upright that function seriously well. I use my wine decanter drying stand for this.

You may well want to also contemplate. . Amazon at present has one particular of the very best charges for this device. I deemed obtaining it for a whilst. Actually, i had a bit of indecision making an attempt to pick among this design, the upcoming phase up (the vp215) and the next phase down (vp112). The vp210 and vp215 are externally identical but the vacuum pump has been replaced with a heavier-obligation, oiled pump. For the reason that of this, it can get hold of the exact same vacuum in about half the time as the vp210. If you search close to, you can locate a vp215 for less than $1250. In the finish, i determined to go with the vp112. The reasoning was:one) mechanically, it has the similar pump as the vp210. So you get the similar functionality and identical everyday living expectancy.

The starting level of specialist grade machines. . Great unit, i have a vp120 and soon after messing with the flimsy lid a last but not least purchased this device. It is really skilled and what i am use to utilizing. I obtained a great deal on the cost and just after a phone to vacmaster i bought a few lacking screws and a new force fudge that was not operating adequately.

VACMASTER PRO380 Suction Vacuum Sealer : Works great. I did overheat it yesterday but after a

. Outstanding construct top quality and is effective like a attraction. Happy i invested a number of a lot more bucks and received one thing that functions.

I procured this with great anticipation as i go by means of these devices each and every one particular. I procured this with terrific anticipation as i go via these devices each and every just one or two decades. So it arrived and i established it up and tried to seal a bag, acquired a e02 error concept. This indicates it will not go into sealing mode. The sealing strip will not even get heat. There is no customer company on weekends, so if you get 1 make confident you set up in the weekday. I would not count on a 400$ device to not operate out of the box. So i will try out to get a hold of them afterwards and we will see what takes place. But to have an mistake code in troubleshooting and then say the lid have to be shut as a solution is so lame. Has anyone tried to seal or vacuum with the lid open up.

I have long gone via many foodsaver machines so i have been looking for a substitution for a whilst now. I experienced my intellect manufactured up to get a vacupack elite but they are just so costly i couldn’t get it nevertheless. So in the interim these arrived out and i seemed at the reviews in this article. I located a single on the preferred auction website that was broken. I called vacmaster and informed them the tale, they said it was continue to below warranty and transported out the now steel portion asap by using fedex. It did indeed deal with the equipment and it is effective great. It is really enormous, and with it truly is sixteen inch seal bar it really is more than able of accomplishing two luggage at at the time. The firm assistance is phenomenal.

Their baggage are good and incredibly reasonably priced. If you are tired of messing with a meals-saver and do a great deal of sealing then this is the ticket in my opinion. This coupled with their luggage and i have had zero troubles thousands of kilos so considerably. With the accessory tube i can marinate or hook up the food stuff saver attachments as effectively.

This vacuum sealer is wonderful. This vacuum sealer is superb. I resealed all the things in my freezer with it, very happy with the excellent.

I have had this detail for just about a 12 months now and enjoy it. My wife was not thrilled at first about the loss of counter place, it is really big and significant. Nevertheless her tune transformed swiftly with how much food we are saving. Leftovers are now lunch/dinners not for the subsequent several times but rather a 7 days or months later. When i am up for it i have done the once a thirty day period cook dinner, seem into it. The very first time i truly cooked plenty of to last us months, it was fantastic. My only criticism is the lid was not perfectly secured and there is a tiny plastic tab that push a button when the lid is shut. This broke, i was likely to create to get it preset as it is screwed in. Then i believed i have glue, and its mounted.

I have read through all the critiques on all the sealers, both business and keep versions. None of them seem to be to get all five stars. Just about all of them have twenty to 25% negative evaluations. I am willing to invest the extra bucks for a industrial grade device, but would be truly ticked off if it won’t operate properly. Everyone want to give me some information.

Helpful product functions as marketed.

But it lasted like two days. I assume i acquired 1 that was made on monday. Pump was spotty and it then essentially gave up. I know a unwell pump when i hear one particular. But the initial 3 seals were being amazing, which was unlucky simply because it is the only 1 in that class with a bag cutter. They all seem to be to be quite substantially the same foundation device. I m torn among ordering the exact 1 yet again or not.

. Outstanding construct top quality and is effective like a attraction. Happy i invested a number of a lot more bucks and received one thing that functions.

Never waste your cash finding something. This is a really serious vacuum sealer. I use it predominantly for activity, and it performs flawlessly. You should not squander your dollars receiving anything else.

Replaced ancient spv-5 following 19 a long time. In 1998 we purchased a vacmaster spv-5 ($five hundred back then). They ended up all analog back again then (vacuum gauge, vacuum adjustment, and so on. It lasted all these yrs (19). One particular of the hinges of the seal bar broke (solid impact plastic) and there are no elements for it. The device still worked but necessary jimmying the seal bar in posture to develop a vacuum. Effectively, that obtained to be a annoying hit-and-overlook, so we purchased the vacmaster professional 380, and have experienced it for fewer than thirty times.

And i suggest that in a good way. Have not made use of it a great deal but, but the quality of vacuum, sizing of sealing bar, and good quality of construct make this a wonderful preference if you are drained of the foodsaver fashion units. I have had at least three of the foodsaver manufacturer, and this is so a lot nicer. I know it costs extra, so maybe not a truthful comparison, but if this thing lasts, it will be a bargain.

Buttons a small touchy, have to open up lid all the things to pull a lot more bag out.

The only destructive opinions is that you. The only detrimental reviews is that you can’t genuinely carovac any item that is wet and very moist. For instance, i tried out to carovac some watermelon, but the dampness will avoid the luggage from sealing thoroughly. It only is effective properly with dried elements. So if you are setting up on performing compressed watermelon for instance, you either will need to use a diverse equipment or it’s possible use some paper towels to prevent the liquid from receiving to the edge of your luggage.

Daughter & sil like the present. Daughter & sil appreciate the reward. I had a vp 215 vac learn & this complements it. (handles extended items (like infant again racks) pretty properly.

VacMaster VP215 Chamber Vacuum Sealer – Just get it, its well worth the investment!

Didn’t get to use just before possessing to get a alternative. Upon unpackaging, there was oil on the again of the unit. Taken off the again cover and loaded the device with oil as in the directions (the inside had no oil spatter). Checked the inside wanting for free fittings and found a silicone tube break up on the top rated of a filter. Because this unit was approximately $900, determined not to make the fix myself and likelihood voiding the warranty so am returning it. Severely hunting forward to the arrival of the substitution, was actually seeking forward to eliminating air from anything.

It is perfect for property or business use. 1st of all, i did all my research right before i purchased a chamber vacuum sealer. I selected the vp 215 since of the oil pump.

Initial of all, they are very heavy and cumbersome, earning it unrealistic to take into consideration it ‘mobile’.

I use it to seal plastic, mylar, and ball jars. You can seal two level sizing vertically or a quart measurement leaned above. I would propose shifting the oil routinely at the beginning (each and every ten or 20 cycles) prior to settling on a satisfactory interval. This will allow removing any split in particles. I located robinair vacuum pump oil at napa for considerably less than $three, despite the fact that it arrives with a quart to start off with. Also propose shopping for your choice of baggage in bulk to preserve shipping and delivery. Immediately after buy, i found the company has significant profits periodically (there was one on father’s day and labor day) tiny annoying, but my deficiency of exploration did charge me $one hundred twenty five ?i genuinely like not acquiring to worry about overheating and being able to quickly do liquids. 2 seconds for heat seal on regular bags. You can also seal ziplocs or plastic packaging that comes from the grocery keep (cheese, and many others.Here are the specifications for the VacMaster VP215 Chamber Vacuum Sealer:

Circuit board had to be changed as soon as i obtained it. Various controls did not purpose properly. Producer changed right away. People $two hundred to $300 vacuum sealers just do not very last. I went by a few of them.

I first sealed a pouch of drinking water and it worked devoid of spilling a drop. I allow is sit in a sink for a week and no leaks. After sealing about thirty steaks i extra a minimal far more to five/8’s whole. Just after 3 weeks in the freezer, not one particular of the steaks have misplaced it truly is seal.

Excellent solution, satisfies and exceeds expectations.

I debated involving this and the vp112. In the end picked this a single because of the improved sealing bar which is essential for retort canning. If i was not arranging on accomplishing retort canning i would have picked the cheaper vp112 with the larger sized vacuum chamber.

I genuinely appreciated to vacuum pack meals that i dehydrate and normally. About the last fifteen many years i’ve absent by way of about five or 6 foodsavers. I definitely appreciated to vacuum pack foodstuff that i dehydrate and normally vac-pac meat just before freezing. I would like i had located this thing fifteen a long time back. Yes, the upfront expense is a minor substantial, and it weighs a ton. A little bit unwieldily to move about by by yourself, so come across a place and connect with it property. 🙂 here are my first impressions. In comparison to a normal foodsaver this matter just a gentle buzzing sounds, not as loud as a transportable space heater. 2) construct quality, in good shape and finish. I was anxious that it was designed in china, but hey, most apple things is and they have great construct top quality, so fingers were being crossed.

Great to use, will make every thing easier.

Likely the most preposterous and biggest kitchen order i have at any time manufactured. . I have finished a large amount of sous vide cooking over the past three many years, and obtained definitely interested in chamber vacuums just after looking at them stated in numerous guides and internet sites. Even though unneeded for almost all sous vide programs, there are a few (involving liquids) that this can do that edge sealers can’t. For the house prepare dinner this is abnormal and unnecessary, but it’s a ton of exciting.

So when i to start with hooked it up it would not pull a vacuum and seal luggage correctly. I was in the beginning quite upset, but identified as ary customer support. Tech talked me via some troubleshooting and uncovered that some tubing got weakened during transit because of to tough handling. Seemingly that happens pretty often. For every the tech’s instructions i reduce the hose that was leaking, reconnected it and bammywam. Troubleshooting and take care of took fewer than fifteen minutes. Many thanks aryi did a ton of investigation on chamber sealers and this was the greatest. I had this in my amazon listing for around a 12 months right before pulling the plug remaining a quite big chunk of alter for residence use.

Just get it, its perfectly well worth the financial commitment. I do allot of sous vide and shtf prepping. The vacmaster 215 has allowed me to store meat, fruits, vegetables and powders considerably a lot more quickly. I also use it to do significant quantities of the 2 qrt mason jars for dry packing. Just lay them down, and they conveniently in good shape in the chamber. I tried out to load a video displaying mason jar use, but amazon degraded the video clip high-quality. Another reviewer said that this unit was not made for mason jars, so i named ary immediate to get an remedy. They promptly explained, ‘yes, performing mason jars was just high-quality, and would not harm the unit’.He stated that fundamentally, if it fit in the chamber, it was alright.

This is an great machine in nearly every single regard. This is an exceptional machine in nearly every single respect. Super leading shelf chamber vacuum sealer. Dont waste your dollars on suction sealers. It is really, incredibly significant — but that’s just an indicia of top quality. It is extraordinarily effectively designed.

This is an fantastic piece of tools. This is an excellent piece of devices. I use it equally for preserving meals and for cooking sous vide.

It sucks rings all around my old bag vacuum. For the price tag and having it shipped to alaska, it was a decent obtain. It sucks rings about my previous bag vacuum. Get the fluid vacuum in excess of the non-fluid to make a planet of change.

Because receiving terribly in to searching feral animals (no inlaws. Because acquiring terribly in to looking feral animals (no inlaws want feel threatened) i have essential a reputable implies to tightly seal meat to place in my ge ‘freezer’ (fridge) considering that it is incapable of its title.
