Take this into consideration before your purchase

If you are looking for a compact and lightweight vacuum sealer without spending too much then this is the device to consider. The minor performance issues do not take away much from the overall functionality and plenty of features on board.

We have to point out that the performance of the air suction pump is not up to mark at all times which is surprising considering the power rating of the motor. The noise that it makes is not that loud so we can easily overlook this as being a minor disadvantage. The lack of hose container sealing is a feature that is unfortunately missing.

The included starter kit is a welcome bonus and along the roll storage and 7 food mode type seal choices functionality, makes up for some of its disadvantages. This is the most lightweight vacuum sealer on our test so for users that need a portable device – this one might be a perfect choice.
