Significant Features and Benefits
Dry rocker piston pump has expert suction and sealing power and produces higher levels of vacuum, about 27-29hg as opposed to 24-26hg pressure levels of other non-chamber style suction machines.

Double seal wire gets you a lasting seal that's twice as stronger as other machines. It ensures reliable packaging and virtually no punctures post packaging.
Chamber technology packages foods like marinades and stews brilliantly.
When you place the package of liquid in the chamber, the chamber vacuum food sealer sucks the air out of the entire chamber,
regulating the same pressure in and out of the package, thereby keeping liquids in the package, unlike suction machines which usually suck the liquid out with air, resulting in failed seals.

Frequent Queries Addressed:
This chamber vacuum food sealer packs moisture rich foods as well as dry foods. It can handle dried fruits, cocoa powder, and flour. Some powders may cake up, but you can always grind and use them.
Moreover, the largest bag that is 10x13in can fit at least up to 48 ounces of fluid easily. The VacMaster almost pays for itself, with all the food it prevents from getting spoilt! Meat portions and fish even stay fresh for two years at a time.
As for mishaps, while there was one time when the bag moved from the sealing bar while sealing, this is not at all something that frequently happens.
I had managed to fill the bag over, resulting in the said situation. If this ever happens to you, I guarantee you it'll probably be a once in 500 seals kind of thing!
- It is better to keep the temperature of the liquid-being-packaged on the colder side. Warm or even room temperature liquid tends to expand and move towards the sealing area, causing failed seals.
- Roll a flexible cutting board and place it at the opening of the bag. It would protect the sealing area. To stop fluids to cross over to the sealing area, use a small wooden bar under the bag and right below the sealing area to create a bump, keeping the product in place.
