Pros

The vacuuming itself is incredibly easy. The only complaint is that sometimes the vibration of the machine will kick the bag out of the heat bar and it won’t seal.

Food saver format has a lot of prep. The slightly sloped vacuum chamber makes packaging liquids, like soups and stocks, easy. The vacmaster is more versatile than food saver type sealer.

My entire pantry is full of vacuum packed, canning jars of various sizes from tiny ones for spices, to giant ones for things like flour and rice. These are much more expensive thancanning jars but it’s nice to have a couple for big items like leftover...  Read More

Largest freestanding appliance in my kitchen. It's heavier than a microwave.

I can count on the machine chugging to life and doing a great job. The only other cautionary note is that one has to be sure one has the counter space and overhead clearance needed for the machine.

Quality


I recently received the vp112 and the quality looks good and it performed without problems right from the first bag.


I am really pleased with the performance, reliability, and ease of use.


The guy at ary said they will be updating manuals and websites and that this lid-getting-stuck issue is one of the few problems...  Read More


This is not so with the vacmaster - you get a perfect seal every time without liquid running out of the bag.


Quality meaning that a bag of spices sealed with this machine has far less air than when sealed with a tilla.

Price


The cost is that you will need to get it set up for your bags.


The cost is very low and much better for you then anything you can buy premade.

Shipping


We were re-reimbursed for the shipping expenses within 5 days.


We did have issues with the shipping (item had been dropped and lid was cracked), but amazon did a great job to resolve it.

Packaging/appearance


The slightly sloped vacuum chamber makes packaging liquids, like soups and stocks, easy and efficient.


Within an hour of opening the box we had tested the machine out by packaging chocolates from our business, soups, large steaks,...  Read More


Always buy 5mm back if you are packaging things like fish with bones.


It's a great product and blows away the foodsaver approach.

Competitiveness


We have owned a vacmaster vp215 for 12 years and it has been so reliable for us!


Perfect airtight seals on the heavier 4-mil chamber pouches.


Those foodsaver suction types have severe limitations for any amateur home cook interested in sous vide cooking.


We have gone through 3 foodsaver machines because they just can't keep up.

    I put the unit to hard continuous work for about an hour sealing up roughly 30 of 10x13 bags with summer sausage i made.

    The unit is heavy and not something that you would want to be constantly moving around your kitchen.

    If you encounter a problem where the lid gets stuck down after the suction stops and you can't get the lid open, there is a solution (per a customer service rep.
