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.
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.

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.

VacMaster VP230C Details

The VacMaster VP230 chamber vacuum packaging machine is ideal for a small commercial kitchen, restaurant, or deli. Featuring a large vacuum chamber and 12 1/4" sealing bar, with a double seal wire, it helps extend the life of food allowing you to accommodate seasonal fluctuations or simply purchase in bulk for a better price. Unlike external vacuum sealers, 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 1/2 hp rotary oil pump (3 oz. bottle of oil included) and a 12 1/4" 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 a filler plate 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. Its user-friendly controls allow you to quickly read the pressure gauge, manually adjust time settings, or stop and seal at any time if you see something you want to address. 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.

Customer Reviews


Totally awesome sealer. Be sure to get extra oil for it if you buy one. It comes with one little bottle only and we found that by the time we filled it, let it set, then topped it off, the bottle was gone. So, you will need an additional bottle for backup. Be sure to read the description. Mine only came with one filler plate from the manufacturer, despite the description saying it comes with two. The Webstrauntstore took care of this though, they contacted the manufacturer and made sure they sent me another plate. Kudos to the customer service!
