What You Should Know:
The Weston works well for years. Just because the sealing parts are replaceable does not mean they need frequent replacement. My seal tape had to be replaced only after years of heavy use.
You might have to push down on the lid to get it to seal at times. That does NOT mean your machine is defective. It is not a usual occurrence either.
When sealing and packing cooked or marinated meat, make sure the sealing area is super clean before you start. I have been using this DIY Vacsealer with my marinated meats and whole fowl. It has not caused me any problems so far.
The duty cycle for this unit is long. I like giving it a 20-second break because it is a machine after all and it gets a whole lot done for me, so I like being careful with it. But as mentioned before, the unit will shut itself down if it overheats, so it takes care of itself on that front.
Tips and Tricks:
Understand that this channel type vac sealer is not for sealing completely runny products like sauces.
Because of its powerful suction, it may suck your product out into its pump, inflicting some damage.
If you MUST seal liquids, be sure to keep the quantities small so that you have more control over setting the vacuum pressure.
Pre-freeze moist foods like meats and mangoes. Put your product in a packet, fold the end and let it sit in the freezer for a while.
The folding keeps the ice crystals from forming on the food and helps the juices from getting into the seal area. The seals will now come out stronger!
Customers have complained that the Weston bags leak and the food gets freezer burnt. On calling QUALITY MATTERS,
I was informed that previously used Weston designs changed because they infringed on the patent rights of another vac seal machine manufacturer: the VacMaster.
The VacMaster bags are, therefore, a better fit for this device and using these will not void the warranty provided by Weston either. On usage, I've realized that this is sound advice. My bags have not had a single failure from then on!
Final Verdict - Weston pro 2300
Easy to use, even for absolute novices, the Weston Pro 2300 is a powerful, channel type suction machine.
With the LONGEST SEAL BAR IN THE MARKET, the sealer is brilliant with whole foods, moist foods, fresh game, fresh produce and even collectibles like coins and documents that need to be kept secure.
Yes, it is slightly pricier than other countertop Vac sealers, but when I think of all the long-lasting, continuous packing and reliable storing it does for my little business, not to mention all the wastage it does NOT do,
I find it all worth it! Not a day goes by when I don't thank my stars for the incredible stroke of luck that's my Weston!
