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 the same size or 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 the same size or 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.
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 I put mason jars in my vacuum packaging machine?
Yes, if the mason jar fits, you can put it in your machine. However, it is not a substitute for canning.
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.

Arrived Friday and as far as sealing bags, as others have said, lid only opens at most one out of every three tries. I bought this to replace a worn name brand sealer and tonight had to pull the old sealer out to finish the simple 5 bag project. Even being old tired and worn, my old name brand sealer worked better. I did use the accessory port for sucking down a vacuum in some jars and for that it really had a lot of power. If that's all you need one for, this would work fine.

This vacuum packaging machine is of poor quality. It doesn't work properly. After it seals the bag, the machine doesn't open so I have to pres "Vac and Seal" over and over just to get it to open. What should take seconds takes me several minutes and it's very frustrating. Bottom line--DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!

This was a tough review. The first time we bought this the seal didn't work. We sent it in to be repaired and they said it was fine. Then we tried it again and it didn't seal still. They finally sent us another one and thankfully is works great.
Got it today put 200 lbs of chicken up door hangs up once and a while but all and all it’s a good unit.
Especially for the price.
This vacuum packing machine dosen't work properly, after seal bag the machine dosen't open you have to keep pressing vac and seal over and over, should be only seconds
Thank you for your review, Mark! We are sorry this ARY VacMaster PRO 110 External Vacuum Packaging Machine with 12 inch Seal Bar has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
The vacuum sealer works very well. The instructions are simple to follow and the process with the machine is very easy. I lost the instructions and was still able to easily figure it out.
This has a seal bar length of 12 inches, which I have found to fit mostly all of the pre-sized bags that you can order. It costs far less than the brands in the department stores, but the quality is just as good and this one has more features. I haven’t tried all of the accessory components yet, but so far, it works great as is.
I prefer this Vacuum Sealer over the other brand way more. It seals much better and the suction is a lot stronger. Love that it has a built in bag storage compartment. The Ary VacMaster customer service is top notch, had a little problem with the latch not releasing after the cycle finishes, they fixed it immediately and sent a whole box of extra bags.
This was the first vacuum packaging machine that I’ve ever used so I can’t compare it to others. I’ve used it for smoothies prep and so far it has worked well for me.
Item is small and works great for the home.works very fast for just about anything that you want to seal before and after you cook
This machine is a real work of art. It seals beautifully, making sure that all sorts of items are able to be preserved without freezer burn.
It is a nice little vacuum sealer. While it lacks a cutter and the sealing bar is not as powerful as more expensive Vacmaster units, it is compact, light weight, and inexpensive. if you want a vacuum sealer for light home use, it is a good fit, one that even includes some bags to get you started.
We have one and we got another for a friend. Even if you don’t work in a commercial kitchen, vacuum sealers are great for buying in bulk to save money. You use what you need and freeze the rest. This makes a great Christmas gift for families. It already comes with bags to get you started.
This vacuum sealer is fantastic. It is powerful and so easy to operate. I love it and highly recommend it! It is also very economical.
While yes it is very cheap, I do not think it is worth the money. It cannot seal ANY amount of liquid for its life, and makes it almost useless for sous vide. I tried to add a bit of EVOO to a seal bag, and it couldnt make a seal properly and the bag ended up opening mid cooking process and ruined the contents completely. I spoke to their service, and they said dont use any oil...
It is also a bit of a pain because you have to click the top in place instead of it air tight sealing on its own. I will not be using this in the future.
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you are having trouble with this machine. If you have questions, please contact our Customer Solutions team!
Great product. Make sure you use a high quality bag for it. Can be a little tricky to learn to use it, but is totally worth it.
I think this is a pretty good beginner machine. Build quality is decent but could be a bit better. Its quite easy to use and does a good job at sealing.
Functions as intended but is clearly consumer level quality. Obviously not intended for heavy use but that is reflected in its price. Good choice for moderate use even if you have to replace every year or two.
Chip, but works. Really good for household applications, or as a backup for a better/bigger model. It is how I use it, and it's good so far. Nice thing about it that it is small.
I use this just about every time I sous vide. It locks in flavor and freshness and odor. I have never had anything freezer burn using this tool.
