Great until ...
Did everything asked of it until the seal perished after two years, and cannot find a replacement. BUT in behaved so well, and was so much cheaper than the rest, that I have purchased another unit. It strikes me that the seals could be easily duplicated. Perhaps a nice little earner for someone?.
No one can supply parts
Although only two years old the soft seal perished so air doesn't suck out and thus doesn't seal, and there seems to be no spare parts available. Buy something that has an Australian representative and parts available. I purchased of Crazy Sales and there's no after sales service there. .
What a great prpduct. I was fortunate to won a couple of half hams in raffles and thought I would have a lot of waste. I nought this machine and cut up both hams, shrink wrapped them and put in the freezer. Now I have ham for the next few months. Also found it good for vegies, bread etc. Love this machine.
Tried and trusted
Got as a replacement for the same model I bought 6 years ago, in that time it never missed a beat , was in use most days , got a few canister sets as well so it had a wide range of uses, freezing raw meats to cooked meats was a every week job, place in bag, semi freeze before sealing , then push flat before final freeze, product ends up taking up very little space and as quick as to defrost,
Take advantage of supermarket specials , vacuum packed keeps much longer in freezer,
I've even used it when going camping, vacuum pack the jocks and socks, take up lot less room and if it rains they stay dry.
By the way , the old one didn't fail , I damaged the sealing strip, still use it to seal canisters
Questions & Answers
I recently acquire this unit and try to find the manual online but with no luck. Does anyone have a manual that you like to share with me? Thanks in advance.
Can this item heat seal Foil bags (much thicker foil than chippie bags), not just plastic?
