By adding to your kitchen arsenal, the VacMaster VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer, you will keep your food fresh and bacteria free, extending its life, but all while still maintaining the flavors and nutritional values. It is a very feature packed unit, that is more designed for commercial use. However, with its ease of use it can be a great tool for the home cook too.

The biggest selling point of this chamber vacuum cleaner is its versatility and its size. It can seal large cuts of meat, leftovers and even soups and stews, which is pretty uncommon. The VacMaster VP210 is a chamber sealer that is designed not to require an external compressor for vacuum sealing. The chassis is built with high-grade stainless steel. In the front is located the control panel that has digital controls and pressure indicator. The vacuum chamber can lodge bags of up to 10×13-inches. The VacMaster achieves high levels of vacuum of up to 27-29 Hg, it achieves this via the use of the heavy duty hp oil pump.

The VacMaster VP210 is fairly easy to use and pretty straightforward. You just check if your bag fits the chamber, then fill your bag to your wish and place the open end across the sealing bar in the vacuum chamber. Then just close the door and start the vacuum cycle using your preferred settings. After the process is completed the chamber will automatically open its lid. All done, pretty easily.

However, with its large size and its weight of 72 pounds, it is not very portable and not the best option for some.

The seals are pretty consistent and you get complete and tight seals every time. It takes a small learning curve to set the vacuum time, sealing time and cooling time settings for different foods, but it is all provided in the user manual and you will master this device in no time.

It is an appropriate vacuum sealing chamber for small businesses or restaurants, maybe hunters or fishermen. For home use it can be appropriate if you cook a lot or like to experiment with your foods and have space in your kitchen to house this beast.

For home use a vacuum sealing system should be compact, good priced, have affordable bags and most importantly provide a perfect seal that will last perfectly in your freezer until you decide to open it. The FoodSaver V2244 is a near perfect food vacuum sealer. Of course it has some disadvantages as everything, but nothing interferes with its ability to vacuum seal.

It has a problem that is present in every suction vacuum sealer. To seal foods that have moistures or liquids requires a little effort. You have to freeze the food for about an hour before you can vacuum seal it. Of course it takes a little more time, but it is the proper way to do it, to ensure a lasting seal that will not break. Also there is no built-in cutter for your plastic bags, but of course it is expected in the price point of FoodSaver V2244. Also it is recommended allowing the machine to rest 20 seconds between seals to prevent overheating, which may result in improper seals.

The sealing strip provided is extra wide and it is consistent throughout the use. Very solid seals, giving you no surprises when opening the freezer. You can also seal any bag depending on your needs to keep it fresh. For example a big bag of chips might go bad if you left it open, with the FoodSaver V2244 worry no more. You can easily seal a bag anytime in the vacuuming process, very handy when dealing with fragile foods. The dry foods are its strong point, and is a strong performer in that department. Also, its small size makes it very easy to put away, or even leave it out there on your kitchen desk.

In the package of the sealer there are also pre-cut, quart-sized and gallon-sized bags, a heat-seal roll of plastic material so you can cut custom bags according to your needs. A five-year warranty is included by the manufacturer further defining the excellence of this product. The FoodSaver V2244 is one of the best vacuum sealers in a really low price point, becoming a perfect product for those that are in a budget and want to save more in the long run.

It is a little loud while working, not the loudest of the bunch but you will have to raise your voice to be heard. It does an excellent job sealing meats and dry foods.

Only then there will be a secure and safe seal. If you do not want to mess with that kind of effort, you can choose a chamber vacuum sealer, as opposed to a suction vacuum sealer. Also locking the lid in the first uses takes a little bit of force, but after the break-n period it is relatively easy.
