Compact, Durable Construction

With only a 14 3/4" x 11 11/16" footprint, this vacuum packaging machine provides your operation with impressive performance while occupying only a minimal amount of your valuable countertop space! Its rugged stainless steel exterior and quality internal components help ensure consistent, reliable performance for years to come.

12 3/16" Seal Bar

A 12 3/16" seal bar accommodates a wide range of bag sizes and thanks to its Teflon® protective strip, bags won't stick or tear so that you can enjoy a reliable, clean seal.

Simple Controls

Push button controls allow you to power the machine, choose manual or automatic operation and adjust the seal intensity. You can even use the pump function to seal contents inside of a container!

Manual or Automatic Operation

To help save time and boost efficiency, this machine can be run automatically so that you simply need to lower the lid and let the machine do the rest. Or, for greater flexibility when packaging more delicate foods, it can be run manually so that you have more control over the vacuum cycle and sealing intensity.

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 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 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.
