Customer Q&AAsk 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 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.

This is a great vacuum sealer, but sometimes it can't keep up with the demand. The machine will get hot and stop vacuum sealing properly.

Don't listen to the naysayers, this unit is awesome. the sealing mechanism just needs to be lifted and reset (looks like electrical tape) because if it gets wrinkled it will not seal correctly, just basic maintenance. This unit blows a food saver out of the water.

Nicholas G. on 02/23/2021

I bought this machine in January 2022. Machine worked great all automated - vacuumed then sealed all without touching it - now will only vaccum - we have to stop it on our own then we have to hit seal on the machine to get it to seal. Found out today no warranty because we bring it into Canada. I will make sure we do not buy anything like this again and will read just purchase equipment etc in Canada.
