Increase food's shelf life with this ARY VacMaster VP215 chamber vacuum packaging machine.

Perfect for vacuum sealing soups, stews, marinades, and other foods for sous vide cooking applications, the VacMaster VP215 vacuum packaging machine seals by taking all the air out of the chamber at once, without drawing liquid into the seal area, and makes a stronger seal than external vacuum packaging machines. This means that you can use this machine to seal liquids in bags for more efficient storage.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.

VacMaster Vacuum Packaging Machines

VacMaster vacuum packaged products can last 3 to 5 times longer than non-packaged food while staying fresh! Watch this video for an illustration on how these useful machines are operated.

VacMaster is the professional way to prep, cook, and package! Vacuum packaged products can last 3 to 5 times longer than non-packaged foods. Not only does this reduce food waste and spoilage, but foods will taste fresher, too! There are two main types of vacuum packaging machines- chamber vacuum packaging machines and external strip vacuum packaging machines. Chamber vacuum sealers are ideal for businesses and establishments that are likely to use the machine several times a day. Chamber vacuum sealers have two different types of bags that can be used – standard chamber bags and chamber bags with zippers. The first is a bag that is pre-sealed on 3 sides, while the former comes with a zipper on one end, with the opposite end open for sealing. To use the vacuum sealer, open the chamber and ensure the seal bar is in place. Chose the type of bag you would like to use and add your food, along with any spices or seasonings, to the bag. Place the bag in the vacuum sealer with the open end resting on the sealing bar and close the lid. Push start and wait while the bag is being sealed. When the process is complete, open the chamber and remove your now perfectly vacuum sealed item. Place it in the freezer for long-time storage, and when you are ready to use it, simply cut the bag open and prepare the item as you normally would. External strip vacuum packaging machines are best used in residential or light commercial settings that more likely to use the machine no more than once a day. External strip machines have 3 different types of bags that can be used – all-purpose VacStrip storage bags, full mesh storage bags, which hold the seal a little better than the standard bags, and bag rolls, which allow you to eliminate waste by cutting the bag to the exact size you need. To use the external strip vacuum packaging machine, place your food and any additional spices or seasonings in a vacuum sealing bag of your choice and place the open end of the bag on the seal bar, with the majority of the bag resting on the counter in front of the machine. Press the start button and watch as the air is drawn out of the bag and the bag is sealed shut. The bag can now be frozen or used to cook the item sous vide.

    2 out of 2 found this review helpful

    Item purchased new but it defective from the start. After several concerned calls to the manufacturer (Ary) about the condition of the oil in the pump, all within the first 30 days of use, the motor finally seized. Ary will only fix and not replace with new. So I am stuck with a factory defect after paying for a new unit.

    We have had our VacMaster now for about 3 years and have used 6 cases (6000) bags and sealed several hundred jars. It has NEVER failed to perform flawlessly. We have suck all sorts of stuff; soup, meats, veggies, grains, clothing, money, and other stuff. The only thing you have to be careful of is that whatever you are sucking does not puncture the bags and you MUST be careful and take your time to place the bags properly to get a good seal. The machine is fairly quiet and VERY easy to use. Changing bag thickness is as easy as adjusting the sealing time, which takes less than 5 seconds. We typically run the unit on a 35 second vacuum cycle, 2.3 second seal time, and a 3 second cool off time. The cool off time gives the bag a chance to "re-solidify" before the vacuum is released in the chamber. If the cool off time is not long enough it will tear the seal some. The unit came with a new sealing heater strip and cover and in the three years we have used it, we have not needed it! Bottom line: If you are going to use a vacuum sealer more than just a few times a year, this is the unit you want. Thousands and thousands of bags sealed flawlessly. What more could you ask for?

    Posted on

    The machine came in quick time. Much lower prices than any other online stores. Unit works perfectly and is free of defects. Just add oil and one is good to vacuum seal. I also purchased 1000 vacuum seal bags. Works great.

    Ordered this Vacuum sealer online. The adjustable pressure works great and seals all sorts of consistencies hard cheese, soft pasta, even liquids. You can also use it to seal jars or jams!

    from Tuscany Posted on

    for the size and price, can't beat this product! Had it for over a year and a half, as long as you remember to change the oil, solid piece!

    from west family hospitality group Posted on

    So far, so good. Quick and efficient, the VP215 provides a good seal, it is quiet, and easy to operate. Only downside so far is the weight of the machine. Of note, the first one we received was damaged, but the Webstaurant Store customer service dept was quick to remedy the situation.

    from Top 40 Charters Posted on

    Top notch sealer we use it everyday and no failures to this point. Simple set up and use make sure to follow all the instructions including filling the oil in the pump. Nice clearly written instruction manual. I would buy again in a heartbeat.

    from Triad Conferences Posted on

    Awesome tool and super functional cooking aid (rapid infusions, sous vide, etc.) and toy. We love this thing and it has been flawless after 16 months with use several times a week, up to an hour at a time. In retrospect, we should have purchased 4 mil bags instead of 3 because we pack some poky things sometimes and the 3 mil bags don't hold up to much abuse.

    WOW! This Thing SUCKS!!! I am so HAPPY and AMAZED with the performance of this chamber vacuum sealer. My FoodSaver on its best day cannot compare to this unit. The bags are very economical and everyone loves using the machine. Try the Vodka Watermelon Slices! This thing Rocks!

    Posted on

    We use this machine on a daily basis. LOVE IT! Easy to operate. Great bag sizes that fit most of everything. Easy to maintain. Solid built. Great price!!

    Posted on

    Love the product. The machine itself is very good. Rock solid performance, It replaced my old Foodsaver that could not stand and barely used due to overheating problems, inability to properly seal wet food and poor suction that would leave air in the bag. The VP215 is exactly the opposite. It leaves no air in the bag. Not a single bad seal after about 300 sealed bags. It seals soups and chili in a regular bag with no issues. Super easy to use - I let my 10 year old do the sealing for me as I portion the food in the bags. One thing you need to be clear about - this sealer is relatively big and very heavy. As such, you need to have it permanently stationed in the area where you will be using. You don't want to move it around. I have it in the kitchen and love the convenience of having it there any time I need it. If it were somewhere else and I had to walk over or bring it back and forth, I would not use it as much as I do, and I use it a lot.

    from ifoodblogger.com Posted on

    Purchased this from The Webstaurantstore about 2 months ago. I use it for just about everything, but my favorite use is Sous Vide cooking. Seals flawlessly...well unless I overfill a bag with ingredients. This is of course no fault of the machine, and completely an "operators problem". Works flawlessly and surprisingly VERY QUIETLY. Much quieter than I expected. My old Foodmaster is much louder. Also quite fast. At 4000 ft altitude, this takes about 35 seconds to put a hard vac on almost anything! This thing is large and heavy, but it also screams quality!!! VERY WELL MADE! My younger brother is now saving up for one for his operation.

    from Premier Refinishing Posted on

    Overall, we're very happy with this unit. We did have an issue that was covered under warranty and the webstaurant store was great at helping us out.

    from Nektar Posted on

    We use the heck out of ours. It has literally changed how we do everything at the restaurant. We bought it initially to be a part of our sous vide program but are also using it to help keep and store perishable products as well as accelerate infusions and marinating. Very simple maintenance and has, thus far, been entirely reliable. If you're going to go down this path, don't skimp and buy a cheaper unit. Just get something pro like this. Research it, the ones that just suck air out of the bags are not as versatile as these chamber units.

    from Juju Restaurant Posted on

    An excellent chamber vacuum packer for home use, although it's way too heavy to move around constantly, or even infrequently. You'll want to have a space set aside where it will be accessible. Functionally it's been perfect for the year or so I've been using it. No issues at all.

    Posted on

    This machine works great. We replaced a unit that only last us for two months. This unit is much quieter that the other and does a MUCH better job in evacuation of the bag along with the double seal strip. This machine is big and heavy, takes a lots of cabinet space to accommodate this unit. If your serious about vacuum sealing your various foods, this is the machine for you. Because of its weight don't expect to store this unit and bring it into the kitchen when you are ready to use it. I just don't see that happening. With the lid in the open position, the top front of the lid is 23 1/2" above the cabinet top. So you either need an area that the cabinets are far enough above the counter top, or sitting on an island or roll around cabinet or cart. The pump takes oil that is supplied with the unit. I have read reviews where they claim there was a strong smell of oil emitting from the unit. I have not detected such and order, and I smelled of the oil in the bottle and could not smell this oil, it is a very light oil. You get 16 ounces with the unit and the pump only holds about 3 to 3 1/2 ounces of oil. You must add oil to the pump before use, this is very easy. Four screws hold the back of the unit on, and one 14mm o'ring sealed bolt in the oil fill hole. The pump has a sight glass and you fill it 1/2 to 3/4 full. One note, my unit would not seal the bag when I first fired up the machine. Everything else worked but it just would not heat seal the bag. I took the front gage panel off and found a loose wire. That fixed the unit. The way the wire fit its plug was very tight and snug, leading me to believe that this wire did not come loose during shipping, but was not plugged in during the assembly process. Don't know how the unit passed test, or if they really do test the machine. I know the warranty would have fixed the machine, but was dreading trying to repack and ship this HEAVY machine.

    This vacuum sealer is great. I am very pleased with the purchase. It is powerful, quiet, and easy to use. I mainly use it for sous vide cooking, and it is perfect for sealing flavorful liquids in the bag. However, I have used it to compress watermelon and do vacuum infusions. It has worked flawlessly.

    Posted on

    So much better than suction sealers!!! I bought mine almost a year ago and I haven't looked back! Fantastic product... worth every penny! Five Stars!!!

    Posted on

    I have no buyer's remorse after this purchase. Truly a commercial quality vacuum packer, and a big improvement over the predecessor model (Ary VacMaster SP15), even though the units are ostensibly similar. Pulls a huge vacuum (as evidenced by the ferocity with which it will "boil" a bag of water). Although I give it five starts, it does seem to give off a machine oil odor strong enough to bother my family.

    Posted on

    First off, this is my first time dealing with Webstaurantstore.com and they are great. This item was delivered in 3 days.... My wife bought me this as a Christmas gift but it came early so she had to give it to me. I just happened to have 200# of meat to vacuum pack. I currently had a cheap vacuum sealer. This thing is like a Cadillac compared to the one that I was using.... Even though you have to wait 40 seconds for the cycle to run thru, you can't get the next package ready in that amount of time. Excellent product, I wish I would have bought one years ago.

    We purchased our vacmaster about two weeks ago to use for vacuum sealing primarily meats in our restaurant. So far it works great, seals quickly and no issues.

    from ShuBrew Posted on

    Perfect size for a small restaurant or a large family. Not the fastest machine but definitely works well. Been using it for sous vide as well as freezing.

    Posted on

    this vacmaster works great and handles a lot of use from students. we turn this machine on and off a lot throughout the day and it holds up very well. We use this for a lot of dairy products and for tomato sauce.

    from ut culinary Posted on

    Best investment ever hands down! You can't beat the price, service or shipping of the Webstaurant. I bought this machine online & got it two days later. Great Product Great Price No Brainer!

    from stoney river Posted on

    This is a must have vacuum sealer for your food. Either they are cooked or un-cooked. I have tried to find a better vacuum sealer for so long until I bought VP215. The VP215 and VP210 are almost identical except the pumping device in the sealer. VP215 uses a oil air pump. It doesn't give you more troubles than you would think. The chamber type vacuum sealer can do more than the cheap sealer. And that is it can seal the liquid inside the bag. If you really need to seal your food that will contain liquid, you don't have other choice but get the one like VP215. I like this machine very much. However, there is one thing kind of bothering me. It is that the machine will automatically start sealing when you push down the lid of the machine when the machine is on even there is nothing in the chamber. But I think that I can get used to this, when I have more use from this machine. Overall, I would definitely give this machine 5 stars without any reservations.

    We have been using this for over a year now with no issues. Used several times per day to vacuum seal foods for sous vide cooking and for storage. Easy maintenance - just be sure to change out oil as needed and it will work great.

    from The Blue Duck Posted on

    The vp215 works! I went with the vp215 for several reasons price lowest priced model with a Oil vacuum pump. An oil vacuum pump is quieter and more efficient even if it does require regular oil changes. Weight its heavy but 1 strong person can move it alone if needed. It's set it up and leave it in one place and only move it when necessary for maintenance unit. I would make some minor design changed to the control panel but they are not a deal breaker. A bag clamp on the seal bar and a port to seal jars would be nice additions. The only issue of note I have had so far was when I was learning to use it and experimenting with different settings. I had set the seal time to 0 and the cool time to 0 when testing vacuum times for sealing jars. I accidentally bumped the seal time from zero to max and burned the Teflon tape. Fortunately a spare was included in the maintenance kit. I have no problem with the settings rolling over from max to min but rolling back from min to max not such a good idea. So pay more attention to settings. I have ordered extra tape just in case and a spare seal bar assembly so no need to stop in the middle of something to do a repair. I can just swap out the bar and when finished do the needed repairs. The box arrived in very pour condition torn and gashed. The unit was well packed double boxed, foam packed and unscathed by FedExs rough handling. It will vacuum seal multiple pint mason jars at once. I can seal quart jars but they have to be laid down on the side so only dry contents nothing wet witch was the reason for initially considering the vp320. I did the obligatory soda can test and the next day I found that the bag had lost vacuum. The sharp corners created when the can was crushed had made small pin holes in the bag so watch out for bones when sealing meat. I repeated the test this time wrapping the can in paper towels with excellent results. I have had it only a short time but so far the results have been very good. Planed uses are make ahead meals, sous vide cooking, storage of big box store bulk purchases portion control and left overs. I am getting rid of most of my plastic containers they are going to Good Will. Using Mason jars for fragile items or vac bags means less cleaning and mess. The jars are easier to clean then plastic, universal replacement lids, can be vacuum sealed to hold fragile items and don't stain. Unlike plastic containers no lid problems finding the correct container lid trying to get it to seal warping etc. Vac bags are no cleaning, easier to store freeze, microwaveable and bailable. I am still learning best practices but am very pleased with the unit it really "sucks". The vp215 came with a maintenance kit and sample bags. I also ordered a impulse sealer so I could partition the bags and put an entire meal in one bag and keep it together in the freezer. Seal 2 lines about a 1/3" apart up the middle to divide the bag and put different foods in each side then vacuum it closed. When preparing just separate between the 2 seals and prepare each food as it requires. Make sure you get a sealer that will accommodate the max bag size in the case of the vp215 its 10x15 so I ordered a 16" sealer with a 5mm seal width. The vp215 is a very powerful sealer and in the future I may explore retort pouch canning but that a ways down the line.

    great cryovac machine for the price best on the market. Great for sous vide food, or just portioning and saving money at your restaurant. Changing the oil is easy, the only thing is this machine is ver yheavy. The glass top is built to last, love this machine

    First off the ease of ordering and the promtpness of shipping is second to none with the Webstaurant store. Top notch web site and the ease of ordering is awesome. Your prices are the best also. In our hunting camp I have purchased many "vacuum packaging machines" like the most popular brands available. And we use them very hard. My last one just went out and I did some research. I purchased the VP215C. I did it for 2 reasons. 1. The reviews and the research I did and 2. The cost and availability of the bags for the traditional packaging machine. I have packaged 4 deer with this unit so far and am very impressed. WOW is all I can say. If your gonna buy a high end type of "Foodsaver" I say don't waste your money. Do your research on this unit. I'll post more after this hunting season concludes but so far I am impressed.

    Buy your meats in bulk and save with this vacuum packer! It is also great in preparing items for sous vide cooking! A little on the pricy side , but it is worth the money!

    Posted on

    We recieved the VP215C yesterday and was disapointed by the way Fedex had handled the package. The Tip n Tell device was all blue meaning the package was upside down at one point even though the package was clearly marked. We opened the package and it was double boxed and well padded. After adding the oil we proceded to start packaging. Wow was it quiet and with fantastic vacume. I have used snorkle machines in the past, but this machine blows them away. Maybe a little slower but far superior.

    from Florida Live Scan Fingerprint & Background Posted on

    I purchased the VP215 which arrived just as I left for a extended salmon fishing trip. Upon my return, I set up the vacuum packer (20 minutes), and started packaging coho. What a difference from the FoodSaver style I had used for years. Clean, fast and flawless performance. I had the fish packaged in no time. I gave the "other one" to my neighbor who was wildly excited until he saw the VP215. It's a bit expensive, but worth every dime. Highly recommended!

    from Charlie Posted on

    First of all I can't beleive how fast your survice is. We ordered it at 8AM on a Wednesday and it was at site 10AM next day, wow! Read the book and added oil and went through the 3 step set up and was on my way packing product. The VP215 works better then I thought. Price is great also. Thank you, Ed
