Customer Q&A Ask 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.

VacMaster: What is Sous Vide?

For convenience and consistency, look no further than VacMaster's line of vacuum packaging and circulating products! Watch this video to learn how cooking with sous vide can save you on valuable time while intensifying the flavors of your food.

Learn the art of sous vide cooking with VacMaster! La cuisine sous vide, French for cooking under vacuum, is a unique process in which food is vacuum sealed and placed in a consistent temperature water bath, ensuring that it is cooked evenly throughout. There are 2 key components to sous vide cooking. The most important is the chamber vacuum sealer, which provides an air-tight seal, keeping nutrients, seasonings, and aroma in while intensifying the flavors of the food. The second is an immersion circulator, which keeps water in motion and distributes the heat evenly for up to several hours, maintaining a consistent and precise serving temperature. Now, thanks to VacMaster sealers and sous vide circulator, you can master this amazing style of saving and preparing food using the same tools as the pros. Cooking sous vide in the restaurant really helps me. It helps me with consistency. It helps me with saving time. This technique, sous vide, is all about consistency and succulence, and you can't really do sous vide without vacuum packing. The secret to sous vide begins with the perfect chamber vacuum seal to keep seasoning in prevent leaks during cooking. Professional-grade VacMaster chamber bags and pouches keep food fresh up to 5 times longer than zip seal bags or light-duty suction seals. Cooking with sous vide helps me to plan and prepare my family's meal on Sunday for the entire week, and then it's cooking while I'm at work and when we all come home, it's ready to eat. VacMaster makes it easy to bring this professional style of cooking into my home. It's consistent, it's convenient, and it's cost effective. VacMaster is the professional way to prep, cook, and package -- everything that you need. I use it in the restaurant and it's perfect, and it'll be perfect at home.

    bags buy aire sealer easy MACHINE seal vacuum claim casa
    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.
    very bad, a home machine really works better ... from the first month it started to fail, I had to press to remove the air and now it does not seal ... it hurts to lose my money, there is no one to claim ...
