Good for occasional useWe bought this to seal large quantities of food. we purchase our meat from a farmer and buy +15 chickens; 4 turkeys and and 2 lambs. All of these we portion and then wanted vacuum seal and freeze. After making about 6 or 7 bags the unit stopped removing air and we had to shut it down and wait 15 -20minutes for it to cool down and start again. The process was laborious and we had concerns about spoilage.
If you're buying this to freeze a few kilos of hamburger or the odd chicken then it's fine otherwise look for a unit geared to commercial use.

Very useful !I received this unit 3 years ago for a Christmas gift. Its always works great and never an issue. Recently , it has been a real pain to get it to seal. I have to keep inserting the bag I want to vacuum a few times until it catches properly and vacuums. Maybe its just getting tired after so many years.

Very frustratingIt is very frustrating to use this machine
Sometimes it vac seals and other times it does not
I would like to trade it because I like the concept of it and when it does work I love it

Great for awhile...Have had this unit for about a year, and it no longer works the way it use to. Sadly after doing some processing of vegetables, it no longer fully seals, and has to stopped as it will continue trying to draw air out of the bag, even once there's no air left... very disappointed that we won't get anymore use out of it. Sadly it'll now be a 200$ paperweight...

Not bad when works.I bought it few years ago in Costco. Worked perfectly till now. Suddenly it stop sacking air completely and doesn't turn for sealing unless I forcing it to do so but then it looses the vacuum and the air is it not fully sack out.
What would be a problem. Can it be fixed.
