This is my first chamber vacuum sealer and I am impressed. Watched many videos and felt I would need to hold down lid to get vacuum. I unpackaged this unit and placed on counter and vacuumed my first bag of water. It worked awesome. No need to press lid or anything. Got this unit so I could leave on counter beside my foodsaver and it fits just fine under counter. I like to seal bags of sweet corn but the juice would block the ext. sealer from sealing. Last week I sealed 60 pint bags and only had 2 slip out of seal bar and not seal. Vacuumed bag second time perfect seal. My only concern is the sealer strip wire pulls a little when lifting bags, but no problems yet. I am exited to seal the rest of my fall bounty with this unit. It works great.

Customer questions about this product
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
VacMaster VP200 Details
The ARY VacMaster VP200 chamber vacuum packaging machine with 12 1/4" seal bar will quickly become a favorite in your kitchen. The air-tight chamber seal offers several advantages, including the insurance that whatever you're sealing stays in the bag instead of getting sucked into the machine. You'll be able to seal anything from meats and vegetables to messy items like soup, gravy, or even coffee, to get the maximum life out of your products.
Featuring a large vacuum chamber, it helps to substantially extend the life of food, allowing you to accommodate seasonal fluctuations or simply purchase in bulk for a better price. It can also be used to marinade and prepare food in vacuum sealed bags for sous vide cooking. This powerful chamber vacuum package machine is ideal for liquids and liquid-rich foods since air is sucked out of the entire chamber when sealing, not just the bag itself. By doing so, the air pressure is equalized both inside and outside of the bag, keeping liquids in and ensuring a superior seal every time. Additionally, this unit features a maintenance-free pump, eliminating the need for regular oil changes. Give valuable time back to your establishment, and save yourself money, by removing oil changes from the equation.
It's easy to use and clean too, thanks to its crystal clear digital display and stainless steel construction. The heavy-duty clear lid makes it easy to see and monitor the vacuum process, and its user-friendly controls allow you to quickly read the pressure gauge, manually adjust time settings, or stop and seal at any time. The accessory port on the machine opens up a whole new wealth of opportunities to use your VacMaster, allowing you to vacuum seal storage canisters (sold separately) that don't fit in the chamber itself. Instead of having a large machine that takes up too much space on your counter, this compact machine will accomplish the same things with its accessory port.
This unit works best with soups, stews, and marinades and can keep game meat and fish fresh over a long period of time. Pressing the marinate button allows you to achieve that great marinated flavor in just 20 minutes, instead of waiting hours for the perfect flavor. By storing meats scent-free, users can preserve their favorite dishes and help eliminate waste of bulk quantities of foods. This unit requires a 120V electrical connection for operation.

People Talk About:seal unit bag vacuum bags sealer bar counter need sealing
Purchased as replacement for my VacMaster VP112 (great machine); I could not generate much of a vacuum with this machine and a good amount of air was always remaining in the bag. I exclusively use for Sous Vide so this is a non-starter for me.
Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry your ARY VacMaster VP200 Chamber Vacuum Packaging Machine with 12 1/4 inch Seal Bar - 120V was defective. Action has been taken to remedy this. Please reach out to our Customer Solutions team if you have any questions!
Defective Unit. I purchased this a month ago, haven’t use that much however, the seal function does not seal properly even with the default seal time. Also, when in seal function the vac function is also activated. Isn’t that seal is for sealing only and not to vacuum the bag?
Thank you for your review, Bernabeth! We are sorry this ARY VacMaster VP200 Chamber Vacuum Packaging Machine with 12 1/4 inch Seal Bar - 120V has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
Received defective unit. The sealing bar raises too early during the vacuum cycle, pinching the bag and preventing it from evacuating. As a result, the bag inflates and slips off the seal bar, preventing adequate packaging. I contacted the manufacturer of this unit and they said that this is a known issue, but since the unit is so new there isn't a proper fix and spare parts are unavailable. I have orders that I really need to get filled and I'm stuck waiting for their warranty support...Webstaurant store won't exchange it either, insisting that I go through Ary's support process. I'm worried that I'll just be sent another defective unit. If you are working in a production environment, DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM until the defects are worked out.
We appreciate your review, Dan. We wish this ARY VacMaster VP200 Chamber Vacuum Packaging Machine with 12 1/4 inch Seal Bar - 120V would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
