Runner Up: Best Budget Food Vacuum Sealer
The FoodSaver V2860 Vacuum sealer comes from a reputable brand in the vacuum sealers market. FoodSaver are well known for making appliances for use for saving and preserving foods. In this case they have created a nifty, easy to use food vacuum sealer.
The vacuum sealer itself is a large rectangular shape with curved edges for better aesthetics. With a stainless steel top and black sides. You will see that it has the buttons for operation along the front of the appliance for ease of operation and they are clearly labelled for ease of use. It does takes up quite a bit of space on the countertop while in use but when you’re finished it packs up nice and neat and tidy to stand on its backend so that it takes up less space.
It has a flip up lid that stores the roll of vacuum bags, in here you can cut from the roll of vacuum bags to your desired size of bag. You then use this the lid to clamp down on the bag to seal both ends of the bag and for vacuuming. Once you’ve sealed one end of the bag you place in the object and place it back under the clamp to suck and seal the other side of the bag. Another neat feature is that the sealer comes with an extra attachment for sealing canisters. You place the attachment unto the suction part of the sealer and then it will easily seal canisters and jars.
It is a heavy duty design but not something for vacuuming many bags in a row. Essentially you should be able to vacuum up to 7 or 8 items without experiencing overheating. However, you can always take a short break if you wish to vacuum more bags.
Overall it’s a great vacuum sealer for at home use if you don’t want to be vacuuming too many items in a row. If you want to vacuum many objects then this might not be the best choice, but it is perfect for sealing a few bags at a time.
