OUR IMPRESSIONS OF THE OPERATION, DESIGN AND PACKING PROCESS
The model was one of the most user-friendly among those tested, thanks to its simple operation and well thought-out design. Open the chamber, put the edge of the bag in it, close the chamber. Press on both sides of the lid to latch it until it clicks into place. On the control panel choose the desired function: “vacuuming and sealing”, “sealing” if you want just to seal the package without evacuating air , “vacuum container” if you use a vacuum container, not a package or a roll . That’s all – the process is started, and most importantly, the device stops automatically. If you need to cancel the action or stop the pump, just press the “stop” button. To open the camera, it is necessary to press the release buttons located on both sides of the device.
We should note that this is the only model among those being tested that seals bags with a double seam, and it’s the only one that comes with a spare gasket for the vacuum chamber.
The vacuum chamber of this device is removable. If it gets dirty with the juice of a wet product, it can be removed and washed.
Test #1: Coffee beans
Coffee beans from an open pack quickly lose flavor. If you don’t plan to use them, it’s best to vacuum seal them and store them in the refrigerator. The package is very hard, the impression is that there is no air at all, although this device gives a degree of vacuum of 90%. After two weeks we took out a bag of beans: the smell is like a newly opened bag.
Test no. 2: Meat and fish
The branded bags are very dense, they are suitable for subsequent cooking in them by “sous vide” technology, and the most suitable products for this are meat and fish. It is not so easy to put a wet steak or fish in a bag in such a way that the inner edges, where the welding seam will be, remain dry, and this is important: the solder does not hold well if there is moisture in its area. In this appliance, there is no special mode for vacuuming moist foods, so it is better to dry the meat with a paper towel before vacuuming. If you are careful, it will work: We did it right the first time.
Test #3. Vegetable mix
Very convenient once every week or two to process purchased vegetables – for example, peel, chop and vacuum seal in portions. On other days, you don’t have to waste time preparing foods for a soup, side dish, or vegetable stew. We vacuumed a mixture of chopped pumpkin and bell peppers for soup. It’s a great package, tight, solid. Stored in the refrigerator for 11 days, after which its perfectly fresh, as if just sliced contents went into the soup. Convenient!
Test #4. Instructions
Exhaustive, thorough, perfectly translated, on good white paper, the format is a book the size of half an A4 sheet. The drawings and signs “explain” the control panel very clearly. At the end there is a detailed table “Troubleshooting”. Particular attention to safety and useful tips for vacuuming different types of food and ready meals. The only drawback is that the font is a bit small.
