Item: VacMaster VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer
If you are just sealing the odd food item to keep it fresh, you don’t need a big sealing machine. But, when you are going to be doing a lot of sealing (maybe you have a restaurant and want to keep food fresh), you need a machine that is going to stand up to a lot of hard work. You need the VacMaster VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer. This sealer gives you a double seal on each bag, so you can be sure that you will always have fresh food, and that there is never any leakage. It also lets you customize the size of the bags, so you don’t have to waste large bags on smaller food items.
One of the biggest problems many people have with food sealers is that they don’t get a tight seal because the juice is sucked up right with the air and goes into the seal. This is not a problem when you are using the VacMaster VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer. Because you place the food inside the bag, and then place the bag in the chamber, all of the air gets vacuumed, including the air in the chamber. This means that the pressure inside and outside of the bag is the same, and there will be no liquid being sucked out.
This is a larger unit, measuring 24 X 19 X 19, and weighing 83 pounds. But, because it is large and heavy, you can be sure that it is a heavy-duty sealing machine that you will be using for many years to come. Just make sure that you have a good spot to store and use it, because it is so heavy that you won’t want to have to move it around every time you need it.
You will get several accessories when you purchase the VacMaster VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer. These include filler plates that fill up space in the chamber when you are sealing smaller foods, heater replacement materials, gasket materials, basic tools, and 100 bags (25 bags in each of four different sizes).
One of the best things about the VacMaster VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer is that you aren’t as limited when it comes to the size of the foods you need to seal as you are with other food sealers. You can change the settings so you are able to work with varying volumes and liquid content, and you get a perfect seal every time.
One of the biggest problems with the VacMaster VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer is getting the hang of using the time settings. There is a bit of a learning curve involved, because you will likely find that the times indicated in the instruction manual don’t always give you the results you are looking for. For instance, if you are sealing soft foods, you will need to use less time to make sure that the food doesn’t get crushed/flattened.
