Customer questions about this product
- How do high altitudes affect the vacuum sealing process?
- A vacuum sealer’s performance varies with respect to location. At higher altitudes, where air pressure is less dense, vacuum sealers are unable to remove as much air from the sealing process. High-pressure conditions are an important factor in the proper functioning of the sealer’s compressor, and without enough pressure, you may notice a weaker vacuum.
- Can this machine be used for retort or mylar packaging?
- These vacuum packaging machines are not recommended for use with retort or mylar packaging; instead, we suggest choosing from our wide selection of vacuum packaging bags for best results! Retort and mylar packaging requires special plastic and foil laminated pouches to seal food safely.
- How do I determine if a vacuum machine bag will work on my machine?
If you have a chamber-type machine: Buy a chamber-type bag (mesh-less design). The open end of the vacuum bag must be shorter than the seal bar on your machine, and the bag must also fit inside your machine’s chamber.
If you have an external-type machine: You must buy an external-type, or "out of chamber" bag (mesh design). The open end of the vacuum bag must be shorter than the seal bar on your machine.
All of our vacuum machine bags list how large the open end is, and whether you can use them with external or chamber machines, in the content.
Perfect for vacuum sealing soups, stews, marinades, and other foods for sous vide cooking applications, the VacMaster VP112S chamber vacuum sealer does not seal by pulling air forward, like external vacuum packaging machines, it seals by taking all the air out of the chamber at once and makes a stronger seal.
This type of vacuum packaging is better to use when sealing liquid than an external vacuum packaging machine because liquid does not get pulled towards the seal. A clamp holds the pouch in place during the vacuum cycle, resulting in less product movement. With a weight of 50 lb., it can be easily moved around, unlike other larger chamber vacuum sealers.
This machine has a compact 11" x 12" x 5" chamber with a 12" wide seal bar. The vacuum power and the seal time on this VacMaster vacuum sealer can be adjusted by the electronic control panel located above the motor. A cooling fan near the motor keeps the unit cool so it can be used for an extended period of time.
This unit comes with (10) 6" x 12" bags, (10) 8" x 10" bags, (10) 10" x 13" bags, and (10) 12" x 14" bags.

I just received my Vacmaster VP112S. I do not have extensive experience with it yet. However, I can sum up my initial usage in two words, "LOVE IT".
Thomas R. Posted on 02/04/2016
This vacuum chamber is great for a small restaurant. It fits a small size vacuum seal bag. We use ours mostly for bagging up items to put in the freezer.
Evan B. from Jack & Alice LLC. Posted on 01/22/2016
I've been waiting to purchase this upgraded model of the VP112 for some time now, specifically because of the new reinforced lid design. My brother purchased the original VP112 back in March 2012 on my recommendation. After about two years of extensive use the lid developed a crack, as noted by other reviewers, and had to be replaced. It was an easy fix but it was an unexpected expense. I was excited to get this upgraded model that hopefully will eliminate the lid failure problems associated with the previous model. It also has a simpler control panel (not that the old was all that difficult) and a marinating/rest cycle which seems like a cool feature. However, when I got the unit I was disappointed to learn that this new model does NOT have an accessory port/hose for vacuum sealing mason jars and marinating canisters that are to big to fit in the chamber. I do a lot of vacuum marinating in large canisters when making beef jerky so this was a huge disappointment and I'll have to hold onto my old FoodSaver just for this purpose. I'll be checking in with ARY and Webstaurant to see if the new reinforced VP112S lid will fit the old old VP112 or if the VP112S can be retrofit with an accessory port/hose.

This product will not work. It sealed three bags poorly, obvious air in the bags and now it will not work at all. Machine runs up to 18, then stalls and displays er02. Failure to enter seal mode. Can not force it to seal early either. Very unhappy with a pricey vacuum sealer that is at this point a very expensive paper weight.

I've waited a couple months since ordering to make sure it really worked. I think I got one that was a return because there were scratches on the lid and instructions, etc were loose in the box, not in any kind of bag. Also, no protective film on anything. So, I was really nervous about it but it has performed flawlessly. You know that one company that advertises you save up to 2700 a year with their sealer? I don't see how it's possible at the price for the bags. With that sealer, if I have a dollar's worth of leftovers, I have to really consider the worth of preserving them. If I want to cook ahead and freeze for lunches or dinners, the bags for that other machine often cost more than the meal I'm preparing so I find myself almost never using the other machine; it's only worth doing on the most expensive of foods. Then I finally broke down and bought the VP112S after years of drooling over chamber vacuums systems. Now bags are wayyyy less. There's never a serving or leftover that isn't worth saving now. Now, when I cook, I cook for 8 or so even though there is only two of us. That's dinner and 3 more meals. That means I only cook once or twice a week. Everything goes in the freezer and I have a lot of favorites to choose from without having to cook. I even cook rice to fill the rice maker and divide it up in meal sizes. You'd think it would mush in the vacuum sealer and it looks like it does but when you boil it in the bag and open it, it comes out just perfect. I grab a rice, a vegetable or soup, and a main course, throw them in my lunch box for work, and I have a gourmet meal in the microwave. I love to roast duck. When I do, I also make about two quarts of broth that I use with the scraps and giblets, add it all to some rice, and make duck-rice soup. Let it cool, stick it in the VP112S, and I have about 4 meals of duck soup that's better than any chicken soup you'll buy anywhere. Last night, we had hotdogs from the store. These are 1/4 lb ones that you have to buy 40 lbs at a time. They come frozen in 8 packs of 20. What in the world are my wife and I going to do with 20 hotdogs before they spoil? We thaw the 20 pack just enough to separate and divide into 4 packs of 5. Last night, I ate two (yeah, I can be a pig) and she ate one. We had two leftover from our five-pack. I could put them in a quart zip-lock bag at about 10 cents and they'd keep a few days open in the fridge or, as I did, I put them into a 6x10 VacMaster bag at about 4 cents and vacuum sealed them where they will keep for a couple weeks in the fridge. This machine is just so useful that we never hesitate to use it. If the other machine can save you 2700 dollars while charging a lot cents a bag, just imagine how much this one can save you - the savings will be many times over the additional machine cost. At more than the price of the other machine, it has about 20 times the value so it pays for itself easily.

Do a lot of sous vide cooking and the VacMaster was the next logical step. I use this weekly and for a lot of different size bags. Seals very well and removes suction from everything from lasagna to soups. I did that initially put the gasket on incorrectly which made sealing difficult, but now works great. Have also put mason jars inside with no issues. Would definitely recommend
Matthew S. Posted on 11/15/2015
I had always been a fan of vacuuming food and saving money. At last I bought the Vacmaster VP112. I have had it almost 2 years and use it every week. I have been able to get at least 40% more in my freezer Here is a tip that nobody else in the reviews mentioned. When we make a large batch of minestrone or chili for example I put the quantity that is enough for two servings into a plastic storage container that will fit into an 8X10 bag and then freeze it. When frozen pop it out of the plastic and into the vacuum bag and into the Vacmaster. Super easy!! When you want to heat it up take it out of the bag while frozen and reheat. Took me this long to figure out that you can cut the vacuum time dramatically by using inserts, so I made myself a set of custom ones. Greg/ Norco, CA.
Gregory H. from African Gourmet Posted on 08/02/2015
After much research on vacuum sealers I decided to bite the bullet and get a chamber type. A friend of mine had bought another brand normal sealer and I liked it however I wanted the option of making soups and such without the hassle of trying to get it to not come out of the bag. So after going back and forth on types, we decided on the VP112A since we were getting along with nothing. It has turned out to be one of the best investments we have made. From doing venison sausage to chili and homemade chicken noodle soup this sealer has proved to be large enough for anything we have thrown at it yet compact enough to fit in normal cupboard space in the kitchen.
Matthew W. from PBE Ranch Posted on 03/24/2015
Very impressed with this product. I was looking for a chamber vacuum sealer for sous vide and bought this when it went on sale. Not only does it work well for sous vide items that include liquid, it allows me to make large portions and store them in my freezer. Easy to use.
Vivian A. Posted on 01/26/2015
Fits my counter perfectly (just) and was surprised to see that wide mouth pint mason jars seem to fit inside the chamber. fyi - they just changed the model to vp112A (no accessory port), which a bit of a shame, but hopefully will hold up better (as guessing the port was causing a lot of user problems)

This is an excellent machine for home use and light commercial use. I've used it to freeze meats, vegetables, and for sauces I've prepared in advance. When used in combination with home canning, preserving, and dehydrating, it adds an important and versatile element to storing foods. I've acquired the vacuum canisters, the meat loading tool, and the stands for filling bags; all of these are great options to have and once you get the hang of using them, it makes the process much easier. I recently stocked up on meats and this machine was perfect for breaking up the packages in to smaller portions for less waste and better storage in my freezers. This is also a handy tool to use for shipping and packaging items you don't want to get wet or leak if travelling. I recently sent several boxes overseas in support of a deployed Service Member and this helped to keep the box small and the bottles of liquids packed from leaking. I've also used it for packing liquids in suit cases to prevent them from leaking during the flight and baggage handling. The variety of bags and the external canisters make it a very useful piece of equipment for a multitude of uses. Well worth the price. It is big and on the heavy side, but its pure quality so don't hesitate on getting one. If you want to break up large bags of food into smaller portions this is the perfect item to have. I plan to do the cook and chill and cook and freeze methods to make some meals for quick cooking during the work week. I also plan to use it for the Sous Vide method of cooking. I love this machine!
Thomas M. Posted on 12/02/2014
I've been very happy with my VP112. It has performed flawlessly for both food preservation and sous vide preparation. Although I was concerned about the lid design, having read that it's prone to breaking, I've not had a single problem with the machine. I have not exactly babied it, either: I once vacuum sealed approximately 80 bags of ground meat in a single afternoon, and it just hummed along the whole time. I've noticed some reviewers complaining about the amount of time required to get a good vacuum. I really recommend getting the set of filler plates for this machine to alleviate that problem. I get good results even with small items at 30 seconds if all of the filler plates are in the chamber. The plate set is inexpensive, saves you time, and I imagine will help extend the life of the machine due to the shorter run times. All in all, a great machine.

excellent product highly recommended. it makes our job a lot easier thank you for such an amazing product. will definetly recomend it to myt friends and family.
Agustin A. from el cazador Posted on 11/10/2014
While the unit, the accessory hose mechanism popped off. The spring loaded ball that is meant to seal the accessory port popped out before I had even finished unpackaging the unit. As such, the unit was unable to draw a vacuum at all, since the accessory host was unsealed. I repaired this by removing the accessory mechanism entirely (picture of damaged parts posted separately). After this repair, the unit functions very well. However, given the price I paid, I expected the unit to function properly on delivery without requiring immediate service, and I'm disappointed that I will not be able to use the accessory attachment.

Awesome purchase! This has opened my world of vacuum packing...I had been pondering this for a very long time and finally decided to go for it. I have used it for all kinds of food products, sous vide, and even alcohol infusions. The sky's the limit...it's a little big but really does fit under the cabinets and is super simple to use.
Brian S. Posted on 09/22/2014
Webstaurant store, best price, free shipping can't beat that !! I have had the VP112 for three weeks. My garden is 40' X 60' and I put up a lot of vegetables with no problems what so ever. The number one thing I like about this model is the ability to vacuum seal wet items. With my Foodsaver ( my sixth one ) I blanched the vegetables put them in the vacuum bags, then had to freeze the before sealing them. Now blanch them, bag and seal them, saves so much time and aggrivation. You won't go wrong with this machine.
Michael T. Posted on 09/12/2014
Up until recently I was a fan of Food Savers. Before I married, I burned out 4 that were considered "Professional" models. After I married, I burned out 2 more. After the last one, I decided it was time for a change. I started to research food vacuums and was introduced to the "chamber vacuum" models. After lots of research, it was quite apparent the best for the money especially, was the ARY VacMaster VP112 for home use. I have never looked back, or been disappointed. This machine eats everything I throw at from clam chowder to large pork and beef ribs. I have never had a single incident of freezer burn, and no problems identifying the food especially if I forget to write what is in the package. There is nothing I have tried to vacuum that this machine won't take. It is especially great for vacuuming soups, stews and chowders, as it does not suck anything into the system. I wished I had bought this machine a long time ago. It could have me a lot of money and headaches! John P.

I have been researching chamber vacuum's for a while and I decided on this one because of all the great reviews. It is a great machine for the money and the bags are so much cheaper than FoodSaver bags. Works great!!!
Cheryl F. Posted on 07/02/2014
Very easy to use and looks and feels extremely sturdy. Having to use two hands to open the lid can be a pain sometimes. I have had no problems vac packing over 100 bags in less than a month
Chris K. Posted on 05/22/2014
Excellent tool. It beats the foodsaver machines hands down. I have gone thru several foodsavers. I buy bulk food and bring it home and break it down into smaller packages for storing
