The Vacupack Elite Vacuum Sealer is an Italian built unit with automatic and manual operations. It comes in an attractive design featuring a stainless steel constructed case. This unit is a top of the line suction style vacuum sealer that performs well under pressure. With the Elite Vacuum Sealer even moist foods to be sealed effectively without damaging the units internal components.
Although not recommended for commercial use, this residential style vacuum sealer has commercial grade durability. Additionally, the included two year warranty and five year service contract is one of the best guaranties included with any vacuum sealer.
The Vacupack Elite Vacuum Sealer powerful performance can be contributed to its piston pump, one of a kind crimping heat seal bar, and channel style design. It’s capable of handling high usage without over heating and can do so without needing to create multiple seals. For users who perform a lot of vacuum sealing jobs, the time spent on packing food items can be reduce drastically.
The Vacupack Sealer handles moist foods very well. Because pressure is not being placed on the bag, liquids stays in place during the vacuum sealing process. With non chamber style units, when sealing moist foods, liquids are also vacuumed as the air is sucked out.
The Vacupack food sealer allows the user to stop the vacuuming process before moisture gets to the top of the bag. When liquids begin to move, pushing the seal button will activate heat and the user can stop the process once the liquids can no longer be seen moving within the bag. The elevated snorkel also prevents moisture from being drawn into the pump.
Liquids that reach the heat bar does not stop the unit from creating effective seals, allowing moist foods to be securely sealed with this sealer, allowing for better long-term food storage. It’s crimping heat sealing system creates a more efficient seal when compared to vacuum sealers that generate a flat seal.
