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 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.

VacMaster VP215 Details

The VacMaster VP215 chamber vacuum packaging machine provides all the great features of the VP210, but with added power! It can apply up to 29 3/4"Hg of suction, when most competitors' models can only reach 26" at most! This powerful tabletop 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.

The VacMaster vacuum packer features a 1/4 hp oil pump (3 oz. bottle of oil included) and a 10" wide double seal wire for optimum results and long-lasting use. This unit ships with (20) 6" x 8" bags, (20) 8" x 12" bags, and (20) 10" x 13" bags that are microwave safe, boil safe, freezer safe and perfect for sous vide cooking! Additionally, you will receive 2 filler plates to help save time when sealing smaller batches. It's easy to use and clean too, thanks to its crystal clear digital display and stainless steel construction. The smoky-clear lid makes it easy to see and monitor the vacuum process. This unit works best with soups, stews, and marinades, and can keep game meat and fish fresh over a long period of time. By storing meats scent-free, users can preserve their favorite dishes and help eliminate waste of bulk quantities of foods.

This item requires a 110V electrical connection.

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.

Barbara C. on 03/19/2014

We appreciate your review, Barbara! A service technician has been sent out to your business to get this machine fixed up for you. If you have any other questions, please contact our Customer Solutions team.

Bought this unit in November 2014. We use it 100 cycles/month on average. I had to replace the key that connects the motor to the pump in the summer of 2015. Since then we've changed the oil religiously on the first of the month using ARY oil. That same key just broke today. I"m so mad. We barely use this thing any more. The oil is clean. And it will still break. The filters can be clean and it will still break. It's worse because ARY doesn't care. Obviously webstaurant isn't at fault here, but ARY's service sucks. Their tech is grumpy and assumes that you are an idiot, even after you've shown him that you can take the whole machine apart and put it back together again. They just wanted to charge me for another vacuum pump today. But they won't have pumps in stock for another 3 weeks Read More

BE ADVISED: Heads up if theres a problem its YOUR problem. Webstaurant will not help you, they pass the puck on to the manufacturer. We've had this product for 1 day it was received as damaged/defective 1DAY and webstaurant tells you to deal with the manufacturer retreating to the "manufacturers warranty." Called manufacturer, to trouble shoot over phone. Now have to ship to manufacturer (3days lead time) they'll look at and repair (no idea how long that will take they don't work weekends) then 3days of shipping lead time for them to ship back to us. So bought a product I needed for my business and I will have to wait weeks to be able to use it. As for shipping back to webstaurant to return the item, they told me I'd have to pay the shipping and a 30% restocking fee.

Thaddeus K. from 1Kept on 08/17/2016

Thank you for the review. We're sorry you're frustrated with this. The restocking fee is for standard returns. If this unit is deemed defective, you may not be subject to the restocking fee.

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 Read More

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.

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.

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.

I just purchased this unit from the WebstaurantStore site. A lot of reviewers say their unit came broken due to shipping. This unit is heavy. The WebstaurantStore shipped it via FedEx and the unit arrived intact. Putting the unit together was easy, I watched the video on the WebstaurantStore site so putting the oil in was easy. The unit does not take very much oil so the bottle that comes with it should last quite awhile. When I opened up the back to put the oil in, there was some fuzzy dust in the back so I took my vacuum cleaner and sucked it out very carefully. There are also some tutorials online that are informative. Once I got started sealing, I was really impressed. One of the tutorials online explained that it is important to fold the top of the bag over a little and put the hamburger or Read More

The vacuum sealer is everything I had hoped it would be. It is big, powerful, and very sturdily made. the oil pump adds sped power, and lots of longevity to the unit when compared to the "dry rocker pumps" in the 210, 120, and 112. additionally, spare parts are available if needed. The oil pump is pretty easy to fill (15 minutes the first time to get the hang of it, then maybe 10), and doesn't need maintenance very often (once or twice a year), so don't let it scare you. The needed oil is included ( about a 5 year supply, depending on use, from what I can tell), as well as a spare fuse and a couple other maintenance items like a screwdriver.

My interest in getting a vacuum sealer began with getting into sous vide cooking. Initially I planned to get an external vacuum sealer, quickly migrating from a FoodSaver product to either a Weston or VacMaster Pro 350. I read the reviews and watched the videos on both the external and chamber vacuum sealers. It was hard to justify spending 3 times the price for a chamber sealer, but in the end it came down to the following: • Absolutely no problem with vacuum sealing products with liquids present • An oil lubricated vacuum pump over a dry one • Much less costly chamber vacuum sealer bags • It is very quiet • It is very durable; it is definitely commercial quality I also considered the less costly VP 113s; however, it looks rather flimsy, has a dry vacuum pump, and is something I thought I would regret saving money on. I was somewhat deterred by the reviews that state unless Read More

First, Webrestaurantstore had the vp215 on my doorstep within 3 days of ordering. The unit arrived in great shape. Great service. Second, the machine is easy to use and I love it. But to be honest it may not be right for everyone. It is heavy and it takes up a fair amount of counter space. Not everyone will want to do the maintenance (oil changes) on the vacuum pump. The pump is is easy to get at and and oil changes will probably take less than 10 minutes when needed. If you can live with these factors you will definitely like this machine. For sous vide cooking the pump only needs to run for 18 seconds for me to get to the proper vacuum level. You will find lots of other things to use this for. For instance a half onion comes out of a vacuum bag after four days looking like you just cut it. No more worrying about liquid that may be in the pouch!

Having used chamber vacuum sealers in many restaurants, I decided to get one for myself for home (and work-from-home) use. I was already familiar with this model/unit/brand, and Webstaurantstore has by far the best price I've found, so I decided to buy myself one for my birthday. Although shipping was a little bit of a pain (it got shipped over a holiday weekend, so tracking got a little confusing), it came in decent time. Everything was good out of the box and I did a bunch of random experiments to test it (compressing peaches, vacuum packaging cheese, infusing watermelon, etc.) and every time things worked out perfectly. This is a seriously solid machine thus far.

Do not get me started on how much I love my VacMaster. It's an amazing piece of equipment that is probably my absolute favorite workhorse. A little intimidating to start with but after a few YouTube videos it becomes less so. I use it to seal mason jars of baking supplies and spices to keep fresh in the hot kitchen. We package our housemade corned beef hash, pulled pork and more for retail sale in our freezer. I seal soup kits for the deep freeze to save time on prep. It has become indispensable. Worth the investment. Must have it's own dedicated space because it is extremely heavy. Also it's helpful to keep a log right next to it so you can track the time it's used. It requires an oil change after so many operating hours. Keeping a log will make sure you do not try to guess when you need it.

Remember to change the oil and this is an amazing reliable vacuum packer. I have owned it going on 2 years and use it daily. I would highly recommend.

Item does a very poor job sealing product. We lost many pounds of product because it was freezer burned. We reached out to customer service and they said they dont see anything wrong with that. I would purchase at your own risk, if you have a problem with it they will not make good on it.

Five years of daily use and still running as good as day one! I absolutley love this unit, there hasn't been anything that I smoke or cook that I haven't been able to fit and seal in it. Brisket, ribs, pork shoulders, roast, etc. After 5 years here are a few pros and cons. Pros - Quick to draw a vacuum - Can adjust the vacuum time all the way up to 99 seconds - Adjustable seal and cool-down time - Seals flexible retort pouches with no problems - Enough room in the chamber where I can marinate meat or seal quart sized mason jars with dry goods - Super quite - Not a single issue after 5 years, I still haven't even had to use the spare sealing wires that come with the unit - Readily available parts so I can keep it in working order if anything ever fails Cons - Heavy as Read More

I used the machine for about 8 months before it slowing started to lose vacuum power. Then at the 15 month timeline, I contacted Vacmaster regarding the issue and we confirmed that I have a vacuum leak. Simply allow machine to cycle then turn off when needle gets to end of green section and needle should hold vacuum pressure...mine drops at a steady rate. Vacmaster told me I have a vacuum leak and that I need to find it. Gave me brief instructions on how to take machine apart over the phone and that was it. I am on my own... Great customer service...

I finally got tired of the basic vacuum sealers that are on the market. At one time I had 3 lined up on the counter while trying to seal the 180 pounds of bacon that I bought. When one sealer wouldn't seal, I'd move to the next one. I had been researching the VacMaster 215 and finally broke down and ordered it. This is awesome, no more pin holes and leaking bags. This actually vacuum seals the way it should. Yes it's expensive, but when you consider the savings in bag costs, I've paid for this unit several times over. I wish I would have purchased this sooner and would definitely buy again. Worth every penny.

Omg this unit has been a game changer for my house. I have had his machine for 2 years. I vacuum pack everything. Its been great for my sous vide. Durring covid19 it has allowed me to buy in bulk since stores out of stock. It was a lot of money for home use but has paid for itself in saved food. Better than the vacuum sealer I had for years. Hold the vaccum. The bags are more afforable...

This is my second machine and i am very happy with it. works very well and easy to clean and maintenance. Make sure you do your regular oil changes
