Best Vacuum Sealer? - Page 5

post #81 of 104


THE food saver unit is OK but the VacMaster 350 is fantastic.The VacMaster unit is made of Stainless Steel and has adjustable settings for your more delicate foods like fruit. My Son has the Food Saver unit and it is Ok but cannot compare to the VacMaster Units. I use my 350 a few times a week and for several bags at a time. It is fast and very powerful. The great bags and rolls from Lisa make it even better and a big cost savings compared to the Food Saver bags you buy at the store.

I have never used the Vacmaster350 but I had a $200 foodsaver that let me down about 6 years ago, it lasted long enough to do 14 deer/hogs well and then barely managed to do another 10 deer/hogs the next year :(

 

I upgraded to the Weston Pro-2100 because I needed a sealer that was known to be a long lasting powerhouse, and couldn't be happier with it over the past 4+ years!!! 

 

One feature these Weston's have that I think is crucial the internal fan that blows the whole time to keep the vac sealer cool so no overheating to stop vac sealing! 

One feature I wish the 2100/2300 would add is a bag cutter but I have learned that buying pre-made bags is the way to go rather then spending hours of time cutting and sealing roll bags.

 

I have also used a Weston Pro-1100 and it also seals amazingly BUT the auto lock/latch and unlock/unlatch "feature" is a pain the butt.  If they got rid of that so called "feature" it would be an amazing sealer because it seals superbly and DOES have a roll holder and bag cutter built into the machine.

 

Anyhow this is just my $0.02.  Fork over the money and get a good one that is a hardcore brand (not FoodSaver) and you will buy once, cry once, and live happily ever after :)

Hi Lisa,

 

Do you have any containers for marinating with a vacuum sealer that are 4 quarts? I've seen the video about marinating with a vacuum sealer on your website, but haven't found the containers.

 

Thanks in advance.

Just orderd some more Zipper bags! Thanks Lisa!

post #87 of 104

I just got a half case of 11" x 50' rolls. I tried the bags last time and they have been good, but with my new PRO 380, making my own bags is a snap! I love the built-in cutter and can make the size of bag I want. The 16" sealing bar is first class! I just wish I could get some bags or rolls that can use it. There are times I want to vac-seal a whole sub-primal and 11 inches isn't big enough.

@Lisa B

I'm Interested in your sealing bags. I have one question, I currently use food saver brand bags and my biggest use is sealing pulled pork to freeze and reheating it in simmering water before serving. Will these bags hold up for that use?
post #89 of 104

Hello,

 

Our bags will work just as well or better than the FoodSaver brand, because our bags are thicker and more durable.

 

Have a great day,

Lisa

The 15" x 18" Ultra bags are pretty big. I have crammed a whole packer into them.

Hmmm...  I only saw the 11" How did I mess them?  Perhaps I was just looking at rolls. Guess I need to go shopping again. :30:

I use the Ultra Bags all the time for sous vide.  Typical temps 130°-183°

 

 

 

 

When we go camping we make eggs in a bag. We crack 3-4 eggs into the pint size bags. Add seasoning, veggies, cooked meat,  seal shut and place in our cooler. Boil water drop the bags in and cook.

@dirtsailor2003

Thank you Sir that helps answer my question
post #95 of 104


Thanks Case. Yup... I was looking for rolls like that. Bags will have to do I guess.

 

By the way... what settings have you found to be the sweet spot for both sealing and vacuum on your 380 now that you have had yours a while?

post #96 of 104

I'm currently manufacturing 15" x 50' rolls that are made to work with the Pro 380.  I should have them in stock in about 6 weeks.

 

Thanks!

Lisa

Honestly I have them set at the highest setting most of the time.

Hello everyone,

 

School has started here.  I have one son still at home and two others who have left.  I'm having some serious empty nesting going on here, and I have to vacuum seal more often now that there are less people here to eat my bulk buy items.
