After wearing out a vacuum sealer from Costco and a “commercial” one fron Cabela’s...I finally bought an oiled, chamber, Vacmaster VP230. So far, I have only vacuumed and sealed about 300 bags...but it works awesome!

“Only 300 bags”, lol that’s a lot of bags. Congrats on the purchase. I’m going to get one of these sooner or later.

not at one time...

my dad and grandpa are avid hunters and keep my deep freeze full of meat. my brother and i then process it into primarily meat sticks, brats, summer sausage, salami, jerky, breakfast links and a combo burger meat of venison with bacon...then we divide it up amongst the entire extended family. with increments of 1-2 pounds a package. with my old vacuum packer, the bags were pretty expensive compared to chamber bags and it took nearly as long to vacuum pack as it did to process the meat! ;) the chamber vacuum sealers are more expensive up front but the bags are a fraction of the cost of the other bags. the unit i bought is oiled vs oil less...so you can run it non stop and you can finely adjust the amount of vacuum and seal time
